I forgot to mention to you that the day Steely Dan was clearly hurt, with the growling when he walked and his big eyes and so on? I called the vet right away, like at 7:30 in the morning, and they said, "Can you have him here by 8:00?" So I took the world's fastest… Continue reading Hair-ried
Yesterday, I finally relented and called my doctor, because you know how I resist doing that. I'm never one to call the doctor. Or cause a fuss. Anyway, he insisted I get an x-ray of my toe, because apparently if you let it go, occasionally something hellish could happen and all of a sudden Scarlett… Continue reading I just laid there. Or lay. You know what sounds good? Lay’s Potato Chips.
In August of 2007, my then-spouse, Marvin, and I moved from Los Angeles to Wadesboro, North Carolina. We went from a population of 3 million to a population of 3,000. It didn't occur to me that this might take some adjustment. But this is what I DO in life. I plow through it, never thinking… Continue reading TinyTown, revisited
Careful readers will note that yesterday I had a mammogram. Or, really, slovenly readers will too, seeing as I just said it yesterday, there, genius. I tried a new place this year because allegedly--according to their ads--they have same-day mammogram results, but of course only after I'd transferred my files, my D Files, did I… Continue reading World’s Dramatic-ist Day
Seeing as medical checkups are my hobby and all, this is really a stellar month. Yesterday, I went to my new dentist. In half an hour, I go to my eye doctor, a fact that will not at all make Faithful Reader Paula nervous. She doesn't like it when I'm writing and have to go… Continue reading Toothy
I did many things this weekend, but one thing I did not do was much sleeping. Internet: Why, Joon? Joon: Noneya, Internet. On Friday afternoon, I was toiling at m'desk when the phone rang. "WHAT." I thought, as I am cheerful and elegant about being interrupted when in a flow. It was my doctor's office.… Continue reading Me and you and a dog with Blu
You know what's annoying about autumn? "It's not autumn yet, June." You know what's annoying about you? What's annoying about autumn is that, at least here, you wake up one day and it's sunny and 85 degrees, and then you wake up the next day and it's cold and raining your ass, as my old… Continue reading Two ADDs walk into a bar
It's the last day of my expansive vacation, in which I saw many exotic things, such as Chapel Hill. It's true; I finally returned those coolers to Chapel Hill. If you're just tuning in, and why do I keep saying that? No one is just now tuning in. Anyway, let's say you just tuned in,… Continue reading June’s stay-at-home vacation. Annoying morning readers, since Monday.
"I have to blog," I just told my mother. Not that I have a blog. When I'm visiting her, I always emphasize how, if I'm writing, I don't like to be interrupted. Ruins m'flow. "I know you have you write, you've told me and told me," she said from her perch in the living room.… Continue reading At 52, June finally plays with a full deck
I'm only writing at you because it's our day. A few years back, when I sat next to my boss, fmr., he and I got into one of our 408-minute discussions about Things That Didn't Matter and gee, I wonder why they split us up. That day, the discussion centered on what did Billy Jo… Continue reading It was the 3rd of June, another sleepy dusty Delta day. Volume XVIIIX934X
I knew I was going to a party yesterday afternoon, so I planned my ensemble in my mind so that I could do my freelance work in peace. I showered, did my hair, put on my kabuki makeup and went to my room to put on my NEW FAVORITE black shirt and pink capris pants,… Continue reading Try to guess the swear word I use when I hit Publish then realize I’ve not added a title.
Today, I was supposed to go to work having fasted, and have blood drawn for our health insurance thing at work. Then 40 minutes later, I was supposed to go to my new doctor and have even more blood drawn for my initial visit with him in a week, unless of course he dies or… Continue reading Chocolate > labs
Yesterday I got a new doctor. If you consult your Big Book of June Events, you'll recall that I have some...trouble with keeping medical professionals. Doctors are my Spinal Tap drummer. I was a normal person with one regular doctor when I was a kid. Mine was Dr. Heavenrich, and I'm telling you right now… Continue reading Doctor Who?
