Talkin’ ’bout my girl

I’ve got sunshine on a cloudy day
When it’s cold outside I’ve got the month of May

Well I guess you’d say
What can make me feel this way?

I’ve got so much honey the bees envy me
I’ve got a sweeter song than the birds in the trees

Well I guess you’d say

Frigid Friday Thoughts

Photo on Friday2-14-20 at 9.06 AM.jpg

I am at my bi-monthly Remicade infusion. It takes about 2.5 hours. I get an IV placed and zone out with my music and laptop for the duration. Unfortunately,  I’m a “tough stick”, and it usually takes at least 2 attempts to find a good vein; but this morning they got me in one stick. It’s a ♥♥ Valentine’s Day Miracle ♥♥.  While I usually drive myself to these appointments, Jeffrey took me this morning so he can pick me up when I’m done and we can head right to Provincetown, MA where we’ll spend the long weekend. As civil servants, we have Monday off, and our favorite piano player, Jonathan Richardson, is performing a special Valentine’s Day show tonight, so we decided to go see it. We’re meeting the BF Jim and his hubby there and will enjoy a weekend hanging out. We don’t usually do anything special for Valentine’s Day (other than swap cards) but this seemed alike a fun idea so off we’ll go. Despite the bitter temps, (it’s currently 14 degrees here and 27 degrees on the Cape) I think we’ll have a good time, with one exception: I am still struggling with an (alleged) bout of Bronchitis. I’ve been hacking for weeks and the PA I saw two weeks ago confidently declared it was Bronchitis and put me on 7 days of antibiotics, which seemed to settle the cough a little, but now its back in full force. My Remicade Nurses aren’t so confident its Bronchitis and have expressed concern, so have instructed me to get my arse back to see my doctor. I will try to do that next week. (I’m very self-conscious about coughing in the Remicade lab. I can’t help feeling the other infusion lab patients eyes on me, as if I’ve brought the plague upon them.)

In other news, we have hired someone to finish our (Semi-finished) basement. He came to do measurements on Wednesday and hopefully will start work in a week or two. This is very exciting for me (as you can tell by the italics and underline), as it will become my first ever (proper) Comic Geek Den and I can’t wait to have it done and put it all together. It will also function as a second guestroom and my “home office.”  Although we’ve been able to use this space as a rec room/knitting lounge/exercise room since moving in almost 8 years ago, it will be nice to have it properly finished and warm and comfy. The best part – I will finally be able to move all my comic book  boxes out of the various closest they’re in upstairs and have them all downstairs in one place and accessible. Woohoo! Here’s hoping it all goes smoothly.

Hope you all have a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by.

Maybe this time…I’ll sob

Just watched the Season 5 finale of Schitt’s Creek, which includes scenes from a local production of Cabaret, in which one of the main characters, Stevie ( Emily Hampshire) stars as Sally Bowles. Earlier in the day, Stevie finds out her best friend is engaged, and it has her feeling left behind and wondering when it’ll be her turn. Fueled with these emotions, she gives this powerful performance, which caught me off guard and left me with tear streaked cheeks.

This is good stuff, people.

The Brave and the Bald

 

 

Another weekend slowly slips away and the doom and gloom of another work week lays before me.I stopped counting down the days because it was too depressing, and switched to months. (75 months to go)   However, it was a neat weekend…the horribly cold weather gave us all the excuse we needed to spend the weekend inside by the fire watching some of our favorite shows and doing various odd projects and tasks around the house.

I spent the bulk of the weekend cataloguing my digital comic book collection. I stopped cataloguing my collection when I switched from printed comics to digital comics over two years ago (I still catalog all my printed comics) but, after purchasing some duplicate digital collections, I decided I better start keeping track of those as well.

I started shaving my head many years ago and, although I get lazy and allow a few days growth along the way, I usually keep my head shorn and shiny. I decide to let it grow a week or so ago, just for a change, and made it a solid 7 days before I couldn’t stand it any more and shaved it clean in the shower this morning. I have grown too accustomed to being a chrome dome and just don’t like more than a coupe days growth. However, I’d LOVE to have my head shaved by someone else on a regular basis. Any takers?

I am the process of trying to knit a cowl. Given how long I have been trying to learn to knit, and how abysmal my efforts have been, I should just give up, but I’m too stubborn to quit, so on I press.

I have an exciting weekend coming up, but I think I’ll save that for another post.

Stay warm, y’all.

Cold Comfort

So this happened today. We’ve had two snow and sleet storms in the last two days, making driving to and from work treacherous.

Fortunately, I got to come home to this:

And this:

Schitt’s Creek Geek

We tried watching Schitt’s Creek earlier on but it just didn’t appeal to us. After hearing (and reading) so much about it, and being huge fans of Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hare from the Christopher Guest movies, we decided to give it another try. 2 Seasons in, we are totally hooked. The break out character for us is the pansexual character David Rose, played by Eugene Levy’s real life son, Daniel Levy. This guy does more acting with his facial expressions than the rest of the cast does with all of their dialogue combined. Hate to be a bandwagon guy, but, if you haven’t seen it, give it a shot.
