Cleaning out the pipes....but not in the porno way


Happy New Year! Yay! New Year! Yay! This the year that my birthday will be 07/07/07. Woot! Party time! (okay this is really sad when I have to schedule party time 6 months in advance) Despite a deep abhoration/ition (shit, I got cut out of the spelling bee in the first round) for resolutions, I bit the bullet & made some this year.

New year, new me!

So I figured, well, may as well improve my life in one way, you know? But then the ball started rolling & there are like 5 resolutions. And then I came back to my original resolution......par down & quit doing so much stuff. Simple enough, right?

WRONG!

Last week I attempted to put these goals into action. Like a test run of sorts. And then another obstacle came up......a rash down my spine & around my upper hips. On Tuesday I started itching & it was really annoying. And then it hurt, which was even more annoying. And then it didn't go away, which was the most annoying of all! Which meant that my 'exercise' resolutions were out the window. And so were the 'hanging out with my friends again more' resolutions. Sorry Farrah & Physics John! But then my parents scared the bejesus out of me & were all like 'you have shingles'. Shit.

Who's got the pox?

Turns out, not me. Not an allergy, either. And the doctor assured me that I also don't have scabies. Yeah, thanks dude, what do you think of me? That I have bugs under my skin. Grossers! And it's not contagious, so he gave me some steroid ointment & sent me on my way. Thus, I have the buffest hip skin around right now.

So it went away for a while. And then today it came back.....at work. So it's official, I'm allergic to work. Or maybe rather, a crazy amount of stress. Which doesn't make any sense, since I've been stressed out like 90% of my life. But I guess the dam finally broke or something.

But for good news, I came home tonight from Farrah's (4 resolutions down, 1 to go!) & found out that the pipes in my building were cleaned out so water pressure at its height. And this week I'm all alone because Ethan's housesitting so I get to take up the whole bed & have a girl apartment again. Yay!

Okay, gotta go to bed so that I can get up early & take care of some stuff for a professor before I get into work.

It's "abhorrence," actually. Maybe you're thinking of "aberration" or "apparition"?

Anyway, your rash is gross, but I still love you.

Yeah, I once had a rash of unknown origin on my thighs and my internist/est (and I won the spelling bee!) started the conversation with "well, it's not herpes!" Uh, thanks. Thanks a lot.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

My computer says it's 2:17am because we've been up running calls (that's 3:17am your time)....now I'm tired.

I have no clue what that has to do with anything here but Happy New Year and keep at your goals, give yourself "rewards" (I learned that from Oprah BTW). I'm going to try the same...need to work out...

Oh, don't be so rash, Emmie. You'll be fine.
