Thank you. I owe you a stabbing.

All those kind words you left me last night?  They helped.  And today I woke up feeling a little less hurt and a lot less hopeless.  I owe you.  So here’s the deal.  I will stab one person for you, in a non-fatal location.  You only get one though, because repetitive motion causes inflammation.

Also, I’ve been mostly unconscious for the last three days and I just woke up in the guest bedroom.  I don’t even remember going to sleep in the guest bedroom.  It’s like I’m having a series of black-outs, but without the booze slushies.  Or possibly it’s alien abductions, but I don’t feel probed.

I just told Victor that I was concerned that I was having a series of possibly deadly mini-comas.  Victor was all “Those are called naps.”  I’m pretty sure Victor is in denial.

What you missed on Good Mom/Bad Mom on the Houston Chronicle:

What you missed in my shop (tentatively called “Eight pounds of uncut cocaine” so that your credit card bill will be more interesting.):

What you missed on the internets:

This week’s wrap-up sponsored by the deliciously lovely people from Hillshire Farm, who are very sweet to me even though I mistakenly call them “Hillshire FarmS” over and over. They’re awesome, and I think they deserve more than one farm.  You should check them out.

  5. Can we all agree on one person, like Glenn Beck? That way he could get all the stabs? How many followers do you have, anyway? I’m sure enough that if only half of us agreed, it could be fatal.

    I didn’t leave a helpful comment yesterday, though, so this one doesn’t count. Actually helpful people will have to agree on someone. But can I suggest that Fred Phelps guy? He deserves it way more than Glenn Beck!

    Hope you get back to hilarious soon. I just recommended you to my sister today, and we went back and read the story of Beyonce, and it was STILL funny, even though I knew what it said. We laughed for hours.

  13. Maybe you were probed by actual little green men and they were so small that it doesn’t feel like you were probed. If they were really little, they might have had trouble getting you all the way back to your bedroom too, which would explain why you ended up in a guest room. They dropped you in the first bed they found, because they’re both polite (leaving you in a bed) and tiny (not being able to get you all the way to the correct bed).

    Also, I’m glad you’re feeling better and that being probed didn’t leave any visible external scarring.

He is OBSESSED, and I mean obnoxiously shut-the-hell-up-about-yourself obsessed, with his treatment miracle kicks he is onto. However, to his credit, he does not take ANY medicine and manages his pain and flares naturally. I wanted to shoot these to you just because knowledge is power. 1) Cuz does Power Yoga. I like to stretch when i get out of bed in the morning and call that yoga, but he does for real intense power yoga and he swears by it. I believe it because i think yoga really does a lot for your mind body and soul. I think a big part of your RA is that the pain causes stress in your mind, which makes everything 10x worse. Which leads me to 2) Cuz meditates. Like the monks do in Nepal or wherethefuckever. He goes on and on about how the monks can sit in an igloo with no shoes on and meditate and melt the ice around them. Meditation is hard and it takes practice. But if you can meditate the stress and pain away, then thats pretty dang cool. 3) Cuz juices. He will go days where he drinks/slurps nothing but straight up juiced fruits and veggies. He preaches that this is a large anti-inflammatory and reduces the flares inflammation wherever it is attacking you. Anyway, I just wanted to share that with you. Pain sucks dick, so I hope you can find some balance and cope with dat shit!

    and please stab drew carey because he is a shitty host and i want bob barker back.

    Can you stab a thing instead of a person? If so, I’ll take a stab to a pinata. A pinata unicorn, if you’re looking for specifics. But don’t stab it in the horn. All the good stuff is in its magic belly.

    He told my overly pregnant belly that despite the fact the past 9 months have been hell to the point where I had to go on medical leave from work way early because I was PARALYZED IN ONE LEG FOR AWHILE. (Sciatic verve. Fun stuff.) Which was then followed by me being so depressed I WOULD HAVE KILLED MYSELF IF NOT FOR BEING PREGNANT AND HAVING A GREATER PURPOSE (the actual legal reason for the leave. Pain does that. You get it.) that if his darling daughter held out for 4 more days, she could share a birthday with her uncle…

    Either way, he’s getting stabbed. But I figure you doing it won’t lead to my divorce and well, this is our 3rd kid so I kinda need him right now…

    Somehow the events of this weekend (my Mom’s memorial service) had me describing what I wanted to stab.
    Take yourself back to the “Care Bears”. Imagine a stuffed yellow Care Bear with a big heart on it’s chest and a button on that back that makes it say “I wuv you”. Now imagine a steak knife through the side of it’s cute little head with the point sticking out next to it’s shiny lemony yellow eye (actually dislodging it).
    This gave me a certain sense of satisfaction….
