Like a Virgin

"I made it through the wilderness..."

Anyway, today I mowed the lawn. That's impressive on several levels. (I had to mow because David didn't have time this weekend and we're expecting rain for the next three days and that means we might not be able to mow for another week which means that we'd be dealing with the YARD OF DOOOOOM.)

First of all, I had the energy to mow. Sweet.

Second, I'm having a horrible allergic reaction to something. I've got this rash all over my face and it's spread a bit onto my chest and my back. The doctor said it's because of too many steroids. Thank you very much. But now I've got this horrible cough (that could be due to the tetanus/diphtheria/whooping cough vaccination I got last week - seriously? Diphtheria? Whooping cough? I live in DALLAS, people,) and irritation in my bronchial tubes (or whatever the hell gets irritated in there.) SO much snot. Seriously. So I mowed the lawn even amidst those irritations. There's no telling what I breathed in out there so I'm sure the allergy situation won't get any better any time soon.

So anyway, while I was mowing I realized I was talking gangsta smack to the weeds. It was very strange yet hilarious. (When I did it out loud I sounded more like a hick than a gangsta, but it amused me nonetheless.)

Whilst mowing I also had "Leaving on a Jet Plane" in my head. It drove me crazy. So when I had to leave to take the gas can to get more gas for the mower, I plugged in my Zune and listened to that song. My Zune said it was by Bjork and P.J. Harvey, but it's so totally not. It's definitely a remake of the original but it's not Bjork and I have no idea who P.J. Harvey is. Rest assured, several of you will be receiving that song via email today so that you can help me figure out who is actually singing.

And now I can't get "Like a Virgin" out of my head. I blame Grey's Anatomy. It's a whole thing.

So after I'm done mowing, I go take a shower. When I get out, Lola wants to play with me so I bend down to play with her and would you believe that little fucker bit me so hard that she drew blood?! Seriously. She's on my list.

Now the baby cat is attacking my back, Chloe is sacked out on the couch, and Lola's off sulking somewhere because I yelled at her when she DREW MY BLOOD. Imagine that.

Anyway, here's hoping you're making it through the wilderness today. I definitely am...just like a virgin.

Stu, you win at the internets today! I've had this song since about 2001 r so and never could figure out who it was. Awesome.

E, I always care. I'm like a Care Bear only less creepy.

So glad to hear from you today. did you just pop in and I had written about the house? I was thrilled to see your comment~ But I am a little distraught over all that is going on with you. I hope you will soon have some good answers and some good drugs to take care of it all. (good drugs in a legal way, you know what I mean! I hope.)

Lisa, yep, just popped in to check your status and saw all the pictures of that wonderful house. Honestly, it was one of my all-time favorite houses and it's still hard for me to believe that you both built it from the ground up. Well done.
