I'm a Slaaave to You
I'm going to the hospital for a little procedure on Fred the Mysterious Neck Lump tomorrow. Its no big deal, honestly, but I'm not too thrilled about it. The big 'C' word has sort of become my life lately and I'm not ready for anyone else (in this case: me) to be affected. I saw an ad with Lance today that really made me feel all kinds of better about what's going on right now. That man is amazing. I feel like if you could bottle up his courage and will to win, we could really make a difference.
Happier things: thank you to the people who wrote and asked me about Karma. She's a happy puppy! I'm convinced she must have been in pain before because since her surgery she's been super active and cheerful. My dad, who has had many awesome dogs including his current one, told me the other day that Karma is the best dog he's ever had in his life. I couldn't agree more. Why can't dogs live as long as humans? I can't believe my baby is already 6.
Because this is the most random post ever.... My girlfriend africankelli sent me an article from the NY Times the other day that talked about how people of my generation really like to have something to complain about or be upset about. I'm not really explaining that right, and I've had a glass of wine so I'm too lazy to go find it, but basically it was an editorial from a NY woman saying that these days people don't feel the need to be overly cheerful (a la L.A., as she says), and that we're perfectly content to wallow in the things that aren't quite perfect in our lives. So how about you? Are you one of those?
Oh, and one more thing: It was 89 degrees in Phoenix today. Isn't it November? Bring on the cold and the pumpkin spice lattes!
(Can you tell NaBloPoMo is killing the little creativity I had?)
