my ocular muscles might spasam and eject my eyeballs."

It's Monday... and tomorrow is Tuesday! Tuesday is St. Patrick's Day! But if you enjoy that holiday as much as I do, you already know that! You have 5 pounds of potatoes, 16 ounces of shallots, 1 large head of green cabbage, 1 large head of purple cabbage, and, of course, a large corned beef brisket, just waiting to be turned into something delicious! Well, I have NONE of those things, but I will have them by later today. St. Patrick's Day is one of those holidays we never miss! One year, when Alan was in upstate New York visiting his parents for their anniversary, I was home alone, it was just me and our tuxedo cat Elvis. But I still made that corned beef dinner, and set a place for my kitty, and enjoyed the hell out of my own company... and the wonderful quiet. You know the quiet... the quiet that reminds you of what life was like when you were out on your own for the first time, and it was just you, and the sounds of other people, in different apartments around you, making living in apartment noises. I smiled in that moment, and then began missing Alan, deeply, painfully. I also rolled my eyes, because there just seemed to be no way to please me! LOL. I do a lot of eye rolling!
Goin' To A Snowbilly Circus...
In other news, did you hear, Bristol Palin is getting married! Good for her... and he... I guess. Oh, don't misunderstand, I am happy for the young lady, happy I tell's ya, but when I read her quote about her good news, I kinda had to tilt my head... and wonder. Bristol met her fella when he visited Alaska to film an episode of her mother's show, Amazing America, and of her new fiance she said... "He met Tripp during that time, and I've seen him in a few places where our paths have crossed since. He's visited us in Alaska, and I've visited his wonderful family in Kentucky," she wrote. "He's wonderful with Tripp and I'm so proud to be marrying him." Good for her and all, but that kinda sounds like she barely knows him, let alone be ready to spend the rest of her life with him. I don't know... what do you think? Am I being nit-picky? I mean ultimately, I couldn't possibly care less about her upcoming nuptials, but one does have to wonder if she will wear a thong wedding dress, like the thong camouflage dress she wore to the Hillbilly-Beatdown-Birthday-Shindig-Brawl last September. Hey, it's a look!
I'm Bringing Stupid Back
I got all my tests results back from last week's visit to the lab. Blood... Good. Blood Glucose... Passable. Liver... perfect. Kidneys... wait a minute. Sigh. It seems I am in early stages of kidney disease. My numbers were above where they are supposed to be, but not dangerously so, it's a matter of taking my blood pressure pills on time, being a little more diligent with checking the blood glucose, and getting my blood drawn again in a few months. Sheesh! Who knew high blood pressure had anything to your kidneys? Well, I didn't, but I come from a long line of high strung political junkies, who take things way too seriously, like whether or not Bristol Palin will wear a thong wedding dress! I have decided to ignore that one, and concentrate on whether the invitations will be bought at Walmart. Call me a hopeless romantic, but one should NEVER buy wedding invitations at a place that also sells bullets! Am I right?
Uggg... there I go again... (Eyeball Rolling). Good Luck You Guys!
