What's Up Doc?

I've been feeling pretty decent the past few weeks. I had to temporarily stop taking my treatments because my blood levels were "critically low", whatever that means. It sure didn't sound like fun! They were threatening to hospitalize me for blood transfusions! All I know is, I was very, very sick. It seemed like it took about 3 weeks though before the effects started to really wear off and I started feeling "normal" again. Yay! I've even gone back to doing some web work!

Finally, someone has come out and described just how nasty this stuff really is. Steven Tyler of Aerosmith admitted to going thru the same therapy in which he claims "it about killed me". Read it here for those that haven't seen it yet. At the moment, I'm waiting for the results of a blood sample test to see if the therapy was actually working. If it was working then I'll be going back on it again to finish it out. If not, then there's no point in continuing. I'll know in a few days! Keep your fingers crossed!

We got some really bad news yesterday, my 93 yr. old grandma fell and broke her hip. She's now in the hospital, I'll be going to visit her this afternoon. She's been very frail and not doing so well. They have her in traction at the moment, we're still waiting on the doctor's conclusions about what can be done to help her heal up. My mom and myself have a very bad feeling that this may be the beginning of the end for her. She'll probably be laid up for weeks and in her weakened condition it's going to be extremely difficult for her to regain her strength. Hopefully she will snap back as she has done so many times in the past! I really love and admire that lady!

Update! Sunday night. My grandma was operated on today and she is now recovering in ICU. Her vitals are looking good and the operation was relatively minor. They made a small incision and pinned the break and it looks like she'll be fine! Good news! yay!

I was having a little fun with Photoshop this morning and I modified a few images that I thought were entertaining, enjoy! Here's the rest of Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez speech before the U.N. General Assembly in which he called Prez. Bush the "devil" and he could still smell the sulphur in the air. Apparently, they didn't do full coverage on the news, why am I not surprised? Here's some of the stuff the media left out!

Have a good weekend everyone!!

Losing My Religion

Reading Evil Julz post the other day about losing her Catholic school memories reminded me of my childhood days of being raised in a Catholic family. I was lucky that I never actually went to Catholic or parochial schools myself but I was forced to go to Catechism classes on Saturdays. Although neither of my parents were particularly religious, with my mom being more so than my dad, I was sent to those classes so that I would at least be taught the basics of the religion.

For those that don't know, Catechism is basically just Bible study given by nuns in a classroom where they beat into you teach you the basics of God, the writings of the Bible and the fundamentals of the church. The school that I went to I like to call "Our Lady of Corporal Punishment" and boy did they like to dish it out! I was very mischievous and rebellious as a child, always getting into some kind of trouble. Even though I wasn't always the instigator, trouble just seemed to follow me around like a black cloud of evil. Most people probably have this notion that nuns are very sweet and kind people like the one portrayed by Sally Field on the old TV series. But, I can tell you from personal experience that these women are absolutely EVIL!!!
I once got punished for not paying enough attention in class. They would usually whack you across the hand with a ruler and or send you to stand with your nose in the corner at the front of the class.
Amazingly, later in the same class I was punished again for "staring" at the same nun! I was apparently now paying too much attention!! How wrong is that!? Of course, she probably thought I was the "devil spawn" and I was giving her the evil eye, hoping a death ray would magically appear and send her off to meet her maker. But hey, that's beside the point!
Another incident was the first time I ever encountered the word "fuck". I had seen it written on the wall in the boys restroom and had absoulutely no idea what it meant. I innocently raised my hand in class and asked the nun out loud, "Sister Mary, what does the word "fuck" mean?" Well, you would have thought that I had just peed on the pope's hat by the reaction I got, I was arm wrestled out of the classroom, yelled at, paddled, dragged to the office, scolded and sent home without anyone actually explaining to me what I had actually done wrong other than "Never, ever say that again!! It's a "bad" word!! God will punish you!!" LOL

But my favorite incident was caused by two litle girls that sat in the row next to me. You know how when you are sitting down in a chair and the front of your pants bulges up, making a fold across your zipper? There's not actually anything in there but I suppose that it looks like there's something poking up. One of the girls reached across the aisle and poked me there with a ruler and said out loud "I know what's in there!". Of course, they both started giggling very loudly, but what they didn't know was that the nun had seen her do it! Guess who got in trouble? That's right, ...ME!! I got a good ass paddling for that one and I didn't do a thing! Sister Mary acted as though I had instigated it somehow and the 2 girls were just too sweet and innocent to have done such a naughty thing on their own!!

Those were just a few of my worst experiences but there were plenty more! It seemed like I was always in trouble!

You guys have any similar evil nun experiences? I wanna know!

Time For Some Silliness!! Dammit!

I think it's about time for some silliness around here. I'm sick and tired of all the depressing stuff going on so here's a few things I've come across or dreamed up lately!

Sometimes you just never know what you might find by reading the fine print on product labels. Looks just like a normal can of sweet peas right?

But then you zoom in on the fine print at the bottom and what do you see? Ugggh!! OMFG!!

Always read that label!!

Sometimes a company brings out a new product and they just don't get it quite right. Here's a perfect example of what I'm talking about!

    Of course they stayed crunchy in milk (the bones and hooves!) but for some reason people just didn't buy them until they changed the name. It's all in the name folks!!

    I've wondered about the eerie similarities between these two guys for some time now and was curious if anyone else noticed that too. I made up a little image for close comparison to help explain my case.

    Here's a few examples:
    1. They're both kings of something, one is king of burgers the other is king of schlock!
    2. They both prance around like a couple of "queens"!
    3. They both creep everyone out with their unnerving appearances.
    4. One loves to serve up lots of kids meals and the other one loves to enjoy lots of "kids meals"! (if you catch my drift!)
    5. One gives away toys with his kids meals and the other gives toys to get his "kids meals".
    6. They've both probably used lines like: "Hey kids help me find the "cheeseburger" in my pants"!

    I'm sure there's lots' more similarities than that, can you guys think up any good ones? hehe
