Cool T-Shirts and a Fiery Crotch(ular area)

The highlights of my week arrived Thursday from Dave at Blogography and Karl at Secondhand Tryptophan!! When I saw the packages in our mailbox, I was elated!! Yes, I think elated is the right word. See the look on my face?-------->

"I feel pissy, oh so pissy.
I feel pissy and witty and WAYyyy... bad!"

Why do I a
lways have Broadway musicals running through my head?

Tuesday, after posting in my blog, I went shopping with my little trolley, and bought the requisite beer, wine, bread, milk, and chocolate pudding. Once home, I puttered, checked Google Reader for blog updates and comments, and read another story from Bukowski's "Tales of Ordinary Madness" (OMG! What a guy! and RW was published in some of the same magazines!!! I "know" a famous person -- DON'T!HATE!).

I'd procrastinated long enough, it was time to work-out and finish the movie I'd started the day before, "Keeping the Faith". It was a cute movie, but I had problems with the pace of the film -- it was too slow for me. There were several scenes that I would've cut completely. Still, I was completely distracted from my work-out, and that's the most important thing for me. I don't want to focus on the time or the discomfort of working out.

I worked out almost until the end of the movie, and then I walked around the living room in the a/c to cool down and I finished the movie. It was about 30 minutes later that I felt "the twinge", and it wasn't a good kind of twinge. No, it wasn't good at all. I recognized that twinge from about 10 years ago. Sonofa.... I cannot believe this is happening to me again, damnit! Another UTI, OMG! I knew that I would be in excruciating pain within an hour or so.

The WHH has been working on a humongous project and was running late. By about 7 p.m. the twinge had turned into a burning sensation. I called the doctor (I think that's part of a 70's song). The doctor kept telling me not to panic. That was easy for him to say because as he was telling me how he thought I could wait to see him until morning, my "crotchular" area was going up in flames! Yes, it was on FIRE and it is a crotchular area. WHH arrived home just in time to have a conversation with the doctor, and then headed to the A & E (Accident & Emergency) at Gleneagles Hospital to collect some first-aid medicine to tide me over until morning.

I'm feeling much better now, but it has been rainy and dreary here for over a week. I actually enjoy a couple of rainy days, but beyond that it starts to affect my mood. That is, until I wear my Bad Monkey t-shirt or my EYE HEART KAR L shirt. They'll always make me smile!

I love my Blogography tees! Whee!

Sorry to hear about the UTI. That totally sucks!

Bad Monkey likes his new home on your chest.

And ordinarily, I'd type a disclaimer like "that totally doesn't mean what it sounds like" ... but this is Bad Monkey we're talking about, so it probably DOES mean what it sounds like!

KG... Yes ma'am, I love my Bad Monkey!

A UTI sucks, but so does antibiotic-causing fucking fiery fungal pain! Sheesh!

Dave... Oh yessirree! Bad Monkey and I are very happy together ;0)
