Fall Excitement

I am excited about Fall 2007! Perhaps in the same regard that most people feel about summer. I love so much about it - it's like, where do you begin?

Apple Cider
Beautiful Leaves
Pumpkin anything!
Cool, Crisp Breezes
Fall Wardrobe
Fall Shoes (separate category)
Sweeps (j/k)
Birthdays
Holidays
Baking!

It was really nice of one of my co-workers to bring in Pumpkin Bagels & Honey Pumpkin Whipped Cream Cheese on Thursday!

I felt inspired to start making things in the oven once again. Behold! Happy Pumpkins in the Oven:

Don't they look super happy in the oven?

f'ing relentless pain

I am in so much pain right now - I can't stand it!!!
I hurt my arm at work a while ago and the pain has only gotten worse.
I feel like I can't do anything because I am pretty much immobilized : @
I try not to complain about it but today I may have reached boiling point as I can't do the things that I want to do (without any hinderance).
I was waiting to see Little Richard (yes, Little Richard) in concert the other night but had to leave because I was in so much pain (& the fact that I lost a really hot earring on top of that).

And don't get me started about physicians!
Before (e:paul) posted about his exp with doctors [link]http://estrip.org/articles/paul/41051.html[/link] I was preparing one of my own...

I went to see the doctor on my day off from work and the Nurse begins to tell me how well she just deals with the pain of a torn rotator cuff and I am like "whatever, I am not you and I don't want to feel this pain. Besides, I can barely move my freakin' arm".

Then I wait and wait to see the PA - who, when she walked in the room, instead of concentrating on me, she is amazed at my purse and questions me on the maker and style, etc. while she stares at my purse and not me and my painful arm.

Then she went on to ask me questions about where I live in this town and where do I work - My answers were all vague. If they were truly important, she would have seen the answers to her questions well documented in my file! It was like she couldn't believe that I lived in this town and had a real job the way she was grilling me...

So, after asking me where it hurts and poking me, she determines that this was the worst case of a torn arm that she has seen (i.e. "I can't help you-not even with some pain meds) - so she refers me to see a specialist two towns over that doesn't even accept my insurance ; (

Booooo! No, I do not wish to pay a $150 appt fee plus addt'l charges for whatever services the specialist performs on my arm + pain meds! This is why I pay for insurance - for coverage when I get hurt. I'd even go with reasonable coverage.

So I leave with no resolution whatsoever. Just f'ing pain.
I continuously lose feeling in my arm & it feels like dead weight with uncomfortable pings of pain.
I liked being healthy. I miss healthy.
Besides, who likes broken goods?

metro tales

I love riding in hot a** metro trains when it's 90 degrees outside & inside it's packed tighter than a can of expired sardines! mmmmm.yum!
gotta love the taste of B.O. as it enters your nasal passage & trickles down ur throat, waiting for you to swallow.
Besides all of that & it feeling like a horrible Monday - Today was excellent! Blue Skies. Sunny sunshine. Great for outdoor photos. I even ventured into a butterfly garden(pics l8tr).

It's Peanut Butter Terry Time

Many have said a lot of wonderful things about (e:terry) : )
Probably because he's such a wonderful guy!
I miss him a lot : (
Whenever I see a Guy in an Emerald Green Shirt(like I swear I saw two standing next to each other on the Metro today) - I wish it were terrykins who would then turn around & let out a few chords of some hot new song (in his own rendition of course!)
I miss our commutes 2 work - even when he was mad because I made us l8 again! This list is long, but I know he knows that I miss him something mad...
I miss so much about this dude 'cause he rocks!

So I hope he has a BIG Birthday Blast! 'Cause its not a party without Terry, his 40 & some dancin' peeps!!!
Happy Birthday (e:Terry)! I miss ya buddy!!!
ForHugs-see here:
For Entertainment - see here: ((this cracks me up and made me late))
Happy Birthday Terrykins!

I love dc

I am freakin' "McLovin" downtown DC again! Last week was super cloudy&dreary. Today it is 87-90 degrees & I am sitting outside enjoying the warmth & the beautiful sites (wash memorial) while taking a lunch break = )
The city is where its at - Barnes & Noble is across the street & there is free wifi 2 boot! Okay, I am melting now. gimme shade & a water feature & i'll be even better. All n all it beats working in the suburbs 4 the most part. I love people watching a city life.
