Decking the Halls

Out of all the Christmas cards I've received so far this year, only THREE are actual cards. The rest came in the form of picture cards. Quaint Christmas settings with the children of my friends adorning the scene.

I guess this means that I've officially gone over the hill. No longer will I receive cards with sentimental or witty words for me to ignore until after I read who the card is from.

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE seeing how my friends' children have grown and changed over the year, but I guess it just makes me a little envious. I mean, I don't send Christmas photos of me to my friends. And I'll tell ya, I'm just as cute, if not cuter!, than their kids!!

Perhaps that's how I'll make my millions! I'll start a business where single adults can have their portrait taken and put on Christmas cards to send to all their friends and family! Brilliant!!!

Excuse me now....I have to go write my business plan.

Test time

Your Element Is Water

A bit of a contradiction, you can seem both lighthearted and serious.
That's because you're good at going with the flow - but you also are deep.

Highly intuitive, you tune in to people's emotions and moods easily.
You are able to tap into deep emotional connections and connect with others.

You prefer a smooth, harmonious life - but you can navigate your way around waves.
You have a knack for getting people to get along and making life a little more peaceful.

You Should Be a Cherry Redhead

Sexy, dramatic, but still sweetly feminine. Perfect for getting out of the hair color doldrums!

There's a Chance You Could Be Violent

Overall, you're a pretty chill person - and you have a good handle on your emotions.
Sometimes your anger gets the best of you, and end up regretting how you act.
Try to curb your temper more often. It only has to get out of control once to do some damage.

You Don't Have a Boyfriend Because You are Too Shy

When a guy gets to know you, he finds a great catch
Problem is... you're too shy for most guys to get to know.
From meeting someone to dating, you usually have your guard up.
And while you're just holding back, it makes you seem like you've got something to hide.

You Should Get an Abstract Tattoo

Artistic and unique
You're the most likely type to personally design your tattoo

You Are 54% Scary

You're a pretty normal, nice girl... but you definitely have your scary moments.
As long as you acknowledge them and apologize, you'll probably keep your guy around.

What Your Peanut Butter And Jelly Sandwich Means

Your eating style is gluttonous. If you like something, you're going back for seconds... no matter how full you are!

You don't really have a sweet tooth. If you go for dessert, you tend to go for something light.

Your taste in food tends to be quite eclectic and wide. You are an adventurous eater, and you like many types of cuisines.

You belong to a class that's all your own. You resist rules and traditions of any sort.

You are a tough person who isn't afraid to live life fully. There isn't a lot that scares you.

You are laid back and extremely easygoing. You never make a fuss, and you try to enjoy every moment.

You Belong in LA

Forget living in a dirty, cold city - you'll take the beach instead.
Celebrity sightings, trendy restaurants, and clubbing all night are more your thing.
And who knows? You might become the next beautiful person the paparazzi stalks!

Health is SO overrated

As most of you know, I've had my trials and tribulations over the past year and a half with my health. Mainly, my gallbladder.

So, as I sit here writing this post instead of being at work because I am sick...yet again, I contemplate health.

Really, is it all what it's cracked up to be? Seriously. I mean, who really likes knowing that they'll be relatively normal most every day of the year and that they might get sick with the usual cold, sinus infection, or stomach flu over that year?

Show of hands?

For me, I honestly LOVE not knowing if I'll be healthy for a full MONTH at a time. Always wondering if what I'm eating will make me sick the next day or if whatever bug I catch from others will put me out of commission for a much longer period of time just because I don't have my gallbladder anymore. Spending much of my weekends in bed because of being sick and wishing daylight wouldn't come back until I felt better.

If only I could live in a cave with no lights, no heat and the Golden Girls 24-7 on the TV. Oh and I guess my cats b/c they wouldn't leave me for any longer than it took to eat their dinner. Guess they thought it would be rude to bring their food downstairs and eat in front of me since I couldn't eat and if I did eat, I wouldn't keep it down. (I know...TMI)

Today is the first day that I feel somewhat human again. I mean, I'm actually on my computer. Haven't really done that in a while except for the few things I HAD to do for work b/c it was due yesterday and I didn't get it done b/c I was sick so I had to finish it the best I could and then e-mail it piece-by-piece to my co-worker since our new server doesn't seem to like files larger than 3kb only to find out today that she didn't get the file I sent originally, so I had to break it down again to send it in smaller bits. Whew!

I guess if I look at the positive side, this has been a GREAT way to lose those extra pounds I picked up over Thanksgiving. Although I thought I had a pretty good handle on it with working out at the YMCA (Village People not included), but I guess my body knew better.

The only thing I can think of as to why I got sick this time is the turkey sandwich I had at the cafeteria of a business my co-worker and I visit weekly. This is only the second or third time I've eaten here, but the first for a cold cut sandwich. So, I'm thinking that I'll probably stay away from them here on out.

My doctor feels that it probably is some sort of virus, but took some blood yesterday anyway to check my liver. Perhaps I'm still "throwing things" (not sure what he meant by that) and that my stomach doctor will have to open a duct or something. I'm not sure how I feel about that though. If that's the case and opening a duct will stop this insanity, then I'm all for it! However, it could just lead to something else and then something else and then something else...

Which leads me to the rationale: Health is SO overrated!

Addendum: I did forget to mention, after reading Cher's comment, that mental spooning can work WONDERS for a sick person. I think it should be bottled and sold in stores!

UPDATE: I've just eaten solid food!!!! Ok, so it's just Chicken Noodle Soup, but hey, gotta start somewhere, eh?
