Instead of turning on my air conditioner, I have decided to skip pants. Currently I am watching my Netflix instant queue in boy shorts and a tank top. You're welcome environment.

So I hadn't been to the doctor for like 3 years (minus a few trips to the doc-in-a-box for sinus infections and the ER for my broken face) and decided to make an appointment. I went, got felt up, got blood drawn (from both arms b/c she missed the first time - bruises on both - awesome), got complemented on my knowledge of my family medical history, and left.

Turns out, I'm dandy - decent blood pressure, cholesterol etc. I am supposed to check on/monitor my periods though because there is a possible glitch, but so far, everything is on track.

Next on the list - dermatologist!

I'll do more tree-hugging if it tastes as good as ben & jerry's. By the way, Elton John makes a damn good ice cream.

This weekend was basically like any other except an extra day.

Things I did:
Went thrift store shopping and ran errands with a friend.
Actually went to a cute little place in Aberdeen for lunch - Aberdeen Cafe (couldn't find a website) and then to the eastern bakery around the block (also no website). I've decided to try out more places for lunch than just Panera (although that place is damn good). I will definitely go back to the bakery because they sell pizza dough and I've been looking for some good stuff since I moved back to NC.
Had lunch with the same friend on Sunday too and ran a few more errands.
Layla had a haircut today; now she is naked.
Made a pie.
Read 2 books and started a 3rd.
Got a text from my sister saying that my mom made a comment about penises and that if she gets the job back here we will start group therapy to get the discount rate.
Watched "Brokeback Mountain" which I thought was awful.
Sent bills & b-day cards.
Cleaned the bathtub.

Things I did not do:

Things that it's a problem that I did not do:
Laundry - I have no pants.

It has been hot & muggy these last few days and I haven't wanted to do much of anything. Part of the reason that this post is so long in coming is that I unplugged for awhile to read Midnight Sun, which depressed me in more ways than one. One way being that it's only partial and I wanted to read all of it. A second way being that I still hate myself a little bit for reading any of the Twilight series, much less the uncut version of a companion novel that you have to read online.

I will do my best to update more frequently, but no promises if it's still this hot and I'm still trying to go without AC.

Text I sent to my sister this morning:

"I'm at the obgyn. Happy bday to you!"

Happy 23rd (god I'm old, how can small bread be 23?) Roll!

I do not like the new Quizno's commercials. It really creeps me out when the oven tells Scott to "put it in me". The oven now has ruined mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm toasty for me. $5 footlongs it is.

PS - I just got Netflix. I haven't even gotten a movie yet and I love it. I've spent 2 hours in front of the computer adding to my queue.

I am pretty sure I have poison ivy. I've had it before so I know what it looks & feels like. I've also had it in weird places (nowhere unmentionable although ouch & yuck at the same time) so this shouldn't be freaking me out.

It's on my middle finger of my right hand. Both sides and the top. Nowhere else.

The thing that's weird is I think it might be spreading, but only to more of my middle finger. Not to other digits or my hand or to the other hand.

It's creeping me out because I don't know where I got it. My backyard looks like a forest of weeds so there could be poison ivy out there. It very well could have transferred to my hand via the dog. But you'd think that it would then be on my whole hand.

Now I am WebMd'ing skin rashes. It could be stress induced eczema, or lots of other gross things. But, the blurb on poison ivy said it's normal for it to appear to spread, but in fact it's not. So we'll see. Also, do NOT google image poison ivy unless you're prepared to look at some pretty nasty stuff. Like blisters the size of pool balls. And I'm not exaggerating.
