I've been so wrapped up in my own little world lately, that I haven't had much time (or energy) to blog hop, write emails, make phone calls, or basically participate in ANY of the common means of communicating with my important "outer" world. So today, I thought I'd just briefly write a synopsis of at least SOME of the events and people in my "big" world out there...those of you who mean more to me than you may know! And I apologize in advance for "outing" you on Cheese, but most of you either have your own public blogs/journals or you are just unfortunate enough to be in contact with a BIG MOUTH...me!
First things first...HAPPY 50th B-Day to QuintaE, my mentor and advisor! You've come a long way, baby (and you never once even smoked a Virginia Slim!). I look forward to knowing you and sharing laughs and tears with you in the next "Fity".
JOYCE...I remain humbly apologetic for not staying in better email "touch" with you and I DO hope lack of word from you means you are busily living your life on that opposite coast and just too damn happy and busy to correspond either! LOL
We've all been anxiously awaiting the SUZY report from CheeCaGo about Lil' Luv (her son) and sending up "big ass" positive thoughts/prayer/chants/energy/love. The puppies are already two weeks old and the pictures on her blog of the little "mutts" are just adorable! As for Da Bears and Superbowl hopes...only time will tell, but I'll definitely be watching that progress (or lack of) closely. LOL
MDMHVONPA appears to have a death wish, posting recipes for SPAM on his blog...at first I thought he was talking about "spam" as computer geek language since he IS one...but no, he's beer-battering the canned type! Next thing we know, he'll be leaving the confines of the MANOR and traveling to Minnesota to carve busts out of butter blocks...a Minn. art form.
I grow concerned when MICHELLE (Object of My Injection Michelle) doesn't make a witty post on her blog for what seems like days on end. Come on, girl! Humor us gimps...unless of course you're connected to a respirator and paralyzed and even then, you could blow in a straw to type a message...I DO hope you're OK.
GDNPLNY1 you ROCK for offering up your shower during my time of hygiene and plumbing stress! I'm beginning to think you're just a computer generated voice at KCCS however, as I haven't seen you in such a long, long time...fire up a flare out there so I know you're alive and kicking...
My bestest buddy, ROJOO, is off this weekend to do a reading of his prize-winning poetry...good luck with that (not that you'll need it...luck, that is) my friend, and I wish work did not interfere so much with my LIFE as you know I'd be there in the audience if I could be!
Welcome, WENDY, to the "fold" ( http://gandksmom.blogspot.com/ )...so sorry you're now a card-carrying MS member, but it does have its perks I suppose...like handicapped parking? OK, I'm stretching on this one!
JAIME, hope you made it back home across them there mountains without much difficulty yesterday! And I'm also hoping your Novantrone treatments have you on the mend...we'll all await your neuro's report, but I'm pouring the bubbly in advance to toast your progress!
You just make me laugh so, "T-Dawg", and for that, I am forever in debt! I'm glad the "momma" had a good visit, although I STILL think she would have enjoyed "Bodies" even if she believes it would have totally grossed her out!!! Remember to yell, "Rock 'em Sock 'em Robots" if things get too stressful...
So, when do "we" get the results of hubby's MRI, MISS CHRIS? I know I, for one, don't necessarily believe OLD AGE would be causing his symptoms, even though I'm kinda hoping for that...just seems too suspicious. And could you post some more about Tai Chi? I can't get my exercise unless I live vicariously through your blog! LOL
You've got one full week (or almost) under your belt of NanoBlogOwhatEver, ZEE! And I am pleased to be known as one of your loyal 3 readers! The "bufont" doggie hair photo was to die for...I envy Rennie...she's got more hair than I do!
CHARLES...dude! I'm working on that MSBPodcast thingy! But I'm basically mentally challenged, typing from dial up, and I don't even OWN an IPod! I do check out the website though, and at least READ what's there even if I can't for the life of me figure out how to HEAR the music..."tarded", just plain tarded I am.
Tysabri is rockin' LAUREN'S world, from what I can tell on her blog...the self-inflicted toilet transfer WITHOUT assistance (although not necessarily a "wise" move on your own, but who among us really is WISE??) seems just what you've needed to get a jump start back on the road to recovery (and "jump start" as a pun was intended)!
I haven't heard from some of you lately (CROMAGMOM, SBBRIDGES, BILLIBOTTON, etc), but I will assume you are all alive, kicking, and raising hell...as it should be! Wishing any and all readers of Cheese health and happiness...
I'm STILL trying to convince PEEJ to get off her literary duff and start a blog herself! She's funny, she's gifted, she's talented, and probably just needs some electric shock to get 'er going. LOL Did I mention she's also SMART when it comes to MS? But seriously, if you need to continue to deprive the rest of the world of your talents, so be it...(I KNOW there will be a comment now!)...fanning the spark here...
And you thought I had forgotten you, didn't you EB???? Just saving the best for last...although I will miss you during your train travels of the holidays, I will continue to carry on the "spirit" of dissent in the "mine". LOL And when are you going to display some of your photography again? You're holding out on us, too, talented one! Have fun eating elk, snake, pheasant, and what other "game" the family finds for T-Day!!!
And to all of my BUDS at ATM (if any of you even READ this besides PEEJ!), "I love you, man"...OK, attempt at borrowing cheesy beer commercial did not go over well, did it?!?
Did I miss anyone??? I'm sure I did, but it wasn't intentional believe me! There are a few of you who have sent me personal emails, which I fully enjoy reading, but I know so little about you it would only be name-dropping here (start leaving comments on Cheese and your life can become an open book, too!) And if I HAVE missed you, leave me a comment or drop an email voicing your complaints regarding my memory...I'll forget what you write or say in five minutes anyway! LOL
