Top 5 On Friday - Week 197

From Music Memoirs

Top 5 Spooky Halloween Songs

1. Oingo Boingo - Dead Man's Party
To leave this song out would be totally criminal.

2. Danny Elfman - This Is Halloween
OK, not spooky but still!! It rocks!

3. Siouxsie & The Banshees - Candyman
Not a guy whose door you'd want to knock at when trick-or-treating.

4. Bauhaus - Who Killed Mr. Moonlight
Not sure, but this one seems perfect for this time of year.

5. Mike Oldfield - Tubular Bells
Spooky and gorgeous all at the same time!

I Neglected To Mention

Last Wednesday before all hell broke loose in my life, I won a DVD on the Pickle. Woot! I'm going to pick it up today.

The DVD is the making of the Beatles "Love" show that's playing in Vegas right now, it's called "All Together Now"

Oh to have the money to go to Vegas and see that show.


That's not likely to happen anytime soon for me.

But at least I'll get to watch the DVD with Ringo and Paul and the wives of John and George, which is better than nothing.

You know me, I love the Beatles. So I'm definitely going to enjoy this. Its just a matter of when I'm going to be able to watch the darn thing.

No Rest For The Wicked

No rest for me either. Perhaps that's because in the last few days, no even the last few weeks, sleep has been all I seem to be able to do.

Last night I managed to apply for Highmark insurance. My boss has a deal with me that he's going to pay a month and I'll pay a month. Wow! That's a wonderful thing. I did that at 9 o'clock.

I even managed to stay up for Eli Stone, which is a show I'm really starting to love these days. But in the past few weeks that 9 o'clock hour is one where I manage to take a little snooze.

Not so last night.

Then when I did get to bed, around 11:30, the kittens decided to act up. And oh did they act up. Cocoa was biting my toes through the blankets. Skimble was meowing up a storm. I think its going to be time to crate them at night very soon. I need my sleep badly.

Tuesday Tunes: Week 55

From Music Memoirs:

There is one week left in the US before the election. This week I want you to pick one song that best describes the candidate of your choosing and tell us why you picked it.

The candidate of my choosing is Barack Obama. Its been a hard decision for me to make but I feel that our country can't take another 4 years with a republican in office. I'm also scared to death of Sarah Palin, but that's another story altogether.

I'm not sure that the lyrics of the song I pick are completely appropriate but the title definitely is, because regardless of the candidate you pick there's one word that keeps floating around everywhere.


My song is by Oingo Boingo, or rather just Boingo when they released this song in the mid-90s.

Lyrics to Change. It's not a political statement by any means, but somehow it sums up my feelings about the word that's being tossed around in this election so much.

I hope I'm wrong about my feelings and I hope we do get some Change come January 2009.

The Steelers Disappoint

I'm not a huge football fan, but I follow the Steelers. I love it when they win and I get really disgusted when they lose, especially like they did this past weekend.

I swear the whole team is injured, which is something that's been plaguing them since they won the Super Bowl a few years back. It all started with Ben and his bike accident that could likely have killed him if he weren't so lucky.

Yesterday's game made me nervous. They were winning, they were tied and then they lost, all in regulation. I think I could have handled it better if they lost in overtime.

I hope the rest of the season goes a bit better for the guys and I hope some of them actually return to play, because if they don't its going to be another mediocre season for the team and they deserve better. Plus I'd love to see Tomlin get them to the playoffs so early in his career as head coach.


But with the way things are looking right now, that's not going to happen any time soon.

Starting To Feel Better

Its been a rough few weeks, what with dealing with eye floaters and well the whole booby issue. My stomach is still a bit upset but getting better. I wish I could say the same for my computer, which is still acting a bit odd.

I really haven't been feeling to excited about being on the computer or doing much of anything right now which is not a good way to feel. Its hard getting over the feeling of fear that seems to have stuck with me right now.

Its been hard to return to feeling normal after all that I've been through in the past few weeks.

I was able to eat a bit more than usual yesterday, so that felt good. If only I didn't sleep on the couch for part of the night, I'd have been in really good shape. Our couch is hell on my back!

Hopefully in another week or two I'll be back to my version of normal, whatever that may be.

And Now The Computer Acts Up

This morning my XP profile didn't want to log me on. Isn't that lovely. All my email settings and emails that I saved, I'm not sure if I'll be able to get to, because of whatever went batshit insane last night when my computer didn't want to power down properly.

I'm truly ready to scream.

With all the stuff I've dealt with this week, I really didn't need this too, but oh well. I guess I'll have to deal with making a new profile. At least all my files on the hard drive are fine. I'll be transferring them over to the external for safe keeping.

Way to make life just a wee bit more complicated than it should be right now.

This has definitely been a week where I didn't want to get out of bed, and with each passing day I get yet another reason to pull the covers up over my head and ignore the world spinning by.

What A Scare

Today I had my first mammogram. Let me tell you I was scared. I was having a little discharge, I know, TMI, and I went to the doctor yesterday.

I barely slept last night. In fact I slept downstairs on the couch to be close to my mum.

After I had the Mammo and the ultrasound I found out that I have cystic breasts. I also need to have another ultrasound in 6 months but the doctor didn't seem to think there was anything to be alarmed about.

So everything is pretty much fine.

But let me tell you, until about noon today I was on pins and needles and scared pretty witless, and I know some of you think I don't have my wits about me anyway.

I'm just trying to destress now and return to normal.

48 hours of sleep might do that.

Pet Emergency

Yesterday afternoon, shortly after I got home from work, my Mutchka had a seizure. Talk about scaring me to death.

I was seriously starting to calm down about some things and then this. I cried the whole way to the vet, because at the time, I thought my kitty was having a stroke and I wasn't going to able to bring him back alive.

Thankfully that wasn't the case, but it really took what was left of my nerves, which are really bad right now and sent them into a tailspin.

I just want to be able to calm down and have a normal pain-free day. All this stress I've put myself through is bad on the stomach, really bad. Its also made me want to do absolutely nothing except sleep. I can sleep for hours. Then I wake up and my brain starts churning and I start worrying about various things.

Not fun.

Seriously I just want to go back to bed and forget things. Is that too much to ask?

Tuesday Night On BBC America

Oh how I love the British comedies on that channel, even though I've seen half of them before (AB Fab and Coupling).

There's just something about these shows that really bring me the giggles. I absolutely love the show Coupling. I had a huge crush on Richard Coyle the actor that plays the more misfitish Jeff Murdoch on the show.

I'm also starting to like Gavin and Stacy. I never thought that would be a show I'd like. Its too relationship oriented, but I do.

My favorite show however is Graham Norton's talk show that they put on Saturday Nights. I think we're about a week or so behind the UK possibly more, its hard to tell sometimes, but oh is he a riot. This past week he had Jennifer Saunders of Ab Fab/French & Saunders and Cyndi Lauper. It doesn't get much funnier than that really.

Its the little things that make everything worthwhile or at least amusing. Thank god for Tuesday night telly! A little laughter never hurt anyone, right?

Tuesday Tunes: Week 54

From Music Memoirs

Tell us 5 reasons why music is an important part of your life

1. It provides a release/relaxation when times are tough. Which makes me wonder why I haven't been listening to more music lately?

2. It provides excitement, whether its from concerts or new releases. Everyone needs a little excitement in their lives, right?

3. The obvious is its entertaining. Depending on what I'm listening to or watching, music can keep me amused, especially if its a funny video.

4. It allows me to express emotions. I love to find a good sob song to wail to when I'm upset, or a fast angsty one when I'm driving and have road rage.

5. Its something that I can share with people. Its part of me, even though I can't write it or sing it (well). I can make mixes and playlists so I can share my excitement with others

Cold Case = Depressing

I love this show even though its a tearjerker 99.9% of the the time. Last night was no exception. I won't spoil the plot but seriously the ending made me want to cry.

There are usually 3 types of endings.

1. The happy ending: Somehow the person is found or somehow saved even though the case is 30+ years unsolved.

2. The murderer is caught.

3. It was an accident and the person involved was too scared to say what happened.


Even though this makes everything simpler it doesn't make the show less interesting. I love the show and watch it whenever I remember that its on. (Which isn't always often as I'm terrible at remembering when my favorite shows are on)

It does however always make me cry, especially if the third cause of the murder is the one that results in the end of the story. Which is why I was near bawling at the end of last nights show.

What I Accomplished Today

~ I ordered a new pair of prescription sunglasses. Take that you fucking floaters! I may be wearing those damn things for most of my work day. Damn the bright office.

~ Drove to Walmart, sans any sunglasses. That's an accomplishment for me! Didn't have a panic attack doing it.

~ Split one of those huge Angus burgers from McDonald's with my dad. The Deluxe is yummy but god, its enough for at least 3 people!!!

~ Bought kitten food for the sweet little beasts that refuse to let me get a good night's sleep.

~ Made a batch of chocolate chip cookies. Sadly not from scratch. These were the refrigerated dough kind. Still, they = yum.

~ Griped about how I still ache just about everywhere from the fall and all the anxiety I've put myself through lately.

~ Had a little cry over the 100th Birthday Picture Book we had made for Grandma. Still missing her terribly.

~ Working at counting my blessings again to remind myself that though some things in my life are annoying, I have so much good in it too.

I Need Something To Do

I think all this time sitting by myself has been a detriment to my mind. If that makes sense. Being alone with ones thoughts is not always a good thing, especially when one is a compulsive worrier like I am.

I need to step away from the computer more, I think, because when I'm online I want to look up stuff about floaters or bug the people I know that have had them, because I'm worried.

I've never really had anything wrong with me before. I'm nearsighted with astigmatism, yes, but other than that and having a UTI once a few summers ago, I've had nothing wrong with me.

To discover these little floating dots that don't go away is hard to deal with. I don't want to drive my car because I get preoccupied with them once I see them. Plus sometimes I see one, other times I think I see more, especially if I look up into any light or go into a white room. Its totally maddening.

I need to relax and be able to stop thinking about these things, but right now I can't seem to do it. I just want to sit alone in the dark. I don't even want to read right now, and that hurts me, because I love books.

I want to talk to people, but these damn floaters are the only thing on my mind so I'm sure I'd be bad conversation to.

Why Am I Up At 5:30?

Actually I was awake at 4:30 because of mama cat but also because I have a nice pain under my left boob. TMI, I know, but let me explain. I worried all damn evening about it until just now when I realized that I probably pulled a damn muscle.

How did I do this you might ask?

I was going to the bank at 9:30 yesterday for my boss. I work in an office trailer with metal steps and it was raining. I had my Crocs flipflops on because they are comfy.

Can you guess what happened next?

Yup, I fell on my butt, grabbing the railing with my left arm. (Which is the side that's hurting)

Apparently the muscle pain was a little delayed in showing up.

I didn't even tell my boss about it yesterday at work, because I didn't think it was a biggy. I slipped and fell. Didn't hurt myself, but apparently I did just a little bit.

Oh Yay!

Tylenol isn't helping much. Neither is it being 10 days before you know what arrives. (Sorry more TMI).

All I want to do is go to bed now, but I can't sleep on my left side cos it hurts! I am such a whiny tard these days.

Pass Me A Sedative Please

Everything is bothering me right now. I've got myself so worked up over the damn floaters that my whole body is rebelling against me.


And watching that stupid debate last night didn't make it any better. Its a good thing I didn't have a beer or I would probably be dead by now.

I have no respect whatsoever anymore for John McCain and his obnoxious smirk. But that's enough of that.

On top of it all in all my crazy worries about my eyes, I almost forgot to pay a credit card bill that's due tomorrow. Thank god for online payments, but I fear I'll probably get hit with a late fee, because I've been stupid and just not feeling right.

My wrist hurts. My boobies hurt. Yeah, TMI, I know, but it's about 10 days from my period, but that has me worried too. I've turned hypochondriac in the last 2 weeks.

I'm a constant worrier, but this is ridiculous. I wish I could feel better. And I apologise to all of my online friends that I've been bugging about the floaters. I know I've been a nuisance but I need to somehow convince myself this isn't the end of the world. I just wish I could put them out of my mind.

Now if you don't mind, I'm going to try to not throw up for the next couple of hours

Happy Hump Day

I'm trying to be upbeat and positive as much as I can, but I still feel very down. After further reading I know my floater,as I think its only one, is very mild compared to other people who have all considered FOV surgery and laser treatments from one of the 3 or 4 doctors that can perform them.

It makes me feel like a big baby that right now because these things are freaking me out so damn badly.

Half the people I hear from say they barely notice them anymore, but others I read about say they are awful and really get no better over time, in fact they get worse.

For a person that is prone to panic when anything is remotely wrong with my body, this is not a good thing to hear, and when surgical procedures are iffy and expensive its even worse.

My optometrist says he has one and he only notices it when he's talking to another person that has floaters.

Mike Bill and Susan could you please email me with how you dealt with first discovering these things or comment. It would make me feel better. I know I need to learn to relax but its hard. I just feel so powerless and there's no one I can really talk to about this that doesn't think I'm going out of my mind, which I may well be at this point.

I need all the help I can get right now. I will remain positive though. At least I know that no one has ever died of a floater!

So Happy Hump Day to you!

I Should Never Watch CSI Miami

I have no idea why I stayed up past the comedy shows last night, but I did and let me tell you, CSI Miami last night was particularly gory!


Just the right blend of weirdness to give a person nightmares, which I don't need, thank you very much. Where do they come up with these stories? At least the L & O epis are sometimes taken from the headlines, so you have an idea how whack the world really is, but this show takes the cake sometimes.

As much as I love some of the cop/crime dramas, why does the 10 o'clock hour have to be a huge gore fest?


This is when ER, (Hospital gore) all the Law & Orders (Not as much gore but still some) and CSI (Hugely gory) are on.

Is it just that we adults like the whole blood and guts thing? I'm not real keen on it, that's actually why I stopped watching House, too damn gory, even though I absolutely love Hugh Laurie. (eep that rhymes)

Why can't we have some more adult type dramas or more mature comedy on in that hour?

Oh yeah, that would bring me JOY!

I'm Still Depressed

This floater has got me down. Now that I know that it won't kill me I should be ok, but no. And I just don't know what to do to calm myself down about this little dust-like think that's floating about in my eye.

I know it could be worse, I could have a bunch and they could be huge, but this one is making me crazy right now. Especially when it does its little dancing routine in my eyeball. Get this sucker on Dancing With The Stars or something.

I marvel that the medical profession can rid us of everything but fucking floaters.

Being told I have to live with this is just ridiculous. What's worse is that I'm the kind of fool that's read stuff about them and know that they can and probably will get worse in time.

Oh thrilling!

That makes me feel so much better.

I want to have my life again and right now I feel like this little dot has taken it away from me. I know it sounds crazy, but that's how I feel. The only activity I'm really enjoying anymore is sleep and you can't sleep your life away. I don't want to do that anyway.

I'm considering a pair of sunglasses.

Any of you floaters sufferers have any suggestions for this poor fool girl?

The Reason I Want To Vote Obama

There is only one thing that makes me hope Barack will get elected, and that's health care reform. Something has to be done. I fall into the category with the other millions of Americans that have NO health care. I haven't been to a doctor since the 90s when I was in a car accident.

I go to the eye doctor every two years and my dentist twice a year and pay out of pocket, which is why any little thing that doesn't feel right in my body scares the crap out of me. I can't afford a regular physician sending me for blood work. I don't make that much money.

Something has to change. PA offers discount health insurance to people that make under a certain amount of money but don't qualify for a medical card. But there is a waiting list that is miles long to get it. Plus I don't qualify because I have a savings account!

In this county all children can be insured. That's great. But who pays for their necessities if the parent is ill and can't work?

I've looked into plans in the last few months, because I know I need to have something eventually and the costs scare me and the coverage makes me weep. And if you are a woman the costs are higher!

I trust Barack Obama to at least try to do something for people like me. I would have trusted Hillary Clinton much more but that was not to be.

Mmmm Mexican

I want to go to Amigos. Its a gorgeous little Mexican place that I've been hearing about for months now. I loved the look of it when Jen and I went to see Mamma Mia! a few weeks back and now I've had a look at the menu.


I love Mexican food, or rather Americanized Mexican. Actually I've been to a few places that claim to be authentic and I liked them too, so maybe I do like all Mexican.

That said, I just really want to go there and eat. And I would if some tard hadn't chucked the coupon from the Magazine section of the newspaper in the trash the other day. Damn and blast.

I could use some really good Mexican food. Actually after the week I put myself through, I could use a really big margarita and a really gorgeous guy (Ok, a geeky guy we all know my type) to drag my drunken butt away from the cantina!

But I don't think that's going to happen anytime soon.

Aw well, I guess I'll have to settle for a tv dinner.

Top 5 On Friday

From Music Memoirs

Top 5 songs to soothe the savage beast.

Chris Blake - Lullaby
Chris is an indie artist who's recent CD I had the chance to review for my LJ community, Mossip. You can check out the video for Lullaby here.

Boingo - Insanity
It's not calm song at all, but something about it has always destressed me or rid me of road rage. I'm not sure why that is the case though.

The Moody Blues - Lovely To See You
This is probably one of my favorite Moodies songs and anytime I play it I go to my happy place. I probably should play it more often.

Erasure - Tenderest Moments
A b-side from the Run To The Sun single from I Say, I Say, I Say, quite possibly the most beautiful song that band has ever recorded.

Elvis Costello - Still
Actually anything from North can soothe my savage beast. It can also put me to sleep. Do not try to power walk to this album, you'll fail miserably!

Thursday, October 09, 2008

All's Well

Just wanted to let you know that my floater was just that, a floater. Yay! I can rest easy tonight and hopefully over the next few days get rid of all the tension I've built up in my body.

Seriously I need a good massage right now, preferably by someone cute with good hands!

Thank you for all the kind words. They did make things go easier for me. I'm glad my worrying was really for nothing.

Hugs to all of you. You are all great friends!

Today Is Eye Doctor Day

I bet all of you are glad I have my appointment today. I know I am. Today I should learn what an idjit I'm being becoming so worked up about my damn floaters.

I'm fully aware that I'm letting this get to me when in all likelihood its nothing. Or rather nothing that's going to hurt me.

Seriously I've worked myself into tension in my neck and shoulders and an occasional headache.

I just want this day to be over.

I'd rather be kicking myself in the head for getting worked up over nothing than this waiting game I've been playing with myself for the last week.

Some of the words of reassurance have gotten through, but not totally to my brain which is still determined that all of this is a signal that I've got some terminal disease. (And not having health insurance makes that even a scarier prospect)

My goal is to try to remain as calm as possible throughout the day. I only have to make it until about 4:30. After that its all between me and the eye doctor.

Please remind me that I'm being an idiot and that eye floaters aren't going to kill me.

The Debate Goes On

I needed a beer to get through just a little bit of the McCain/Obama debate last night. Just watching these two jokers is enough to make me drink.

Is it horrible that I still don't really want either of them to be president?

And just watching McCain smirk makes me want to chug down a whole beer! Come to think of it Obama does that to me too.

Where the hell is Hillary when we need her?

If we were going to have a woman floating around in this election, why does it have to be that freakazoid, religious wingnut, force two unwilling kids to get married, barbie doll looking, beotch that doesn't know the US Constitution from a hole in the ground?


Yeah, that sums up how I feel about that particular candidate well, doncha think?

When this election is over I will be a happy human. Maybe. Unless the polls suddenly change and we get that old fart that likes to point and smirk a lot for a president.

I really think that if they want a good debate they should really start arguing and Obama should beat up the old guy. I know I'd be amused. OK, not beat him about duct taping his mouth shut?

OMGWTF What Time Is It

I took a Sinus PM last night before bed, because a lot of my other icky feelings are related to my damn sinuses. However, I forgot that if I'm taking one of those kinds of pills that I should be ready at least an hour before I usually go to bed, not at the same time.

Why, you ask?

Because I'll sleep through my alarm.

At some point I shut mine off. I don't even remember doing it, and I wake up around 6:30 with an hour to get my life in order for the day.


So now I'm running around like a total nut job, because I got an extra 45 minutes of wonderful sleep this morning.

Ah the joys of sinus season!

Not To Much To Say

I'm still trying to convince myself that my "eye floaters" are not a sign of certain doom for me. Its not been easy, especially since the last few days have been really bright ones. And that makes things a bit more annoying.

I just wish I hadn't read up on them on the internet, because they come out and say, they are harmless but they don't ever go away.


That doesn't make me feel better.

I'll get used to it, I read.

Fat chance.

I'll probably explode from nerves before that happens. I guess its a good thing I scheduled an eye exam this week, even though I had one back in June. (Another expense I didn't need this month)

All of this is making me depressed and again I reiterate that I have no one to talk to to make me feel better about this.

I mean I know its nothing, but would you please tell my brain that, because its not getting through.

I feel like my body is falling apart, and over something so little, I know.

Life On Mars

I fear the American version of this show. Its not often that American writers can pull off one from the UK well. So far I think The Office is the only one that has done well, and I'm one of the few people that liked neither version.

Life On Mars is one of the best bizarre cop drama's I've ever watched and that has to do with the casting. John Simm as Sam Tyler is just superb, just as he was superb as the Master.

It is just as good as the CSI/Law & Order shows but with a could it be time travel twist. (But those from the UK reading this know that already).

I just wish that American TV people would stop stealing BBC and ITV ideas and think up their own because so very few of the shows cross over well and I hated what they did to Coupling a few years back. This show is too good to be destroyed. I hope to god that its done well, but I think I'd rather watch the original episodes on BBC America or download them and watch them on my own.

And on a random Life On Mars note: John Simm is a hottie.

Its In Bloom

I'm truly amazed that the peace lily managed to bloom under my care. I'm not known for having a green thumb.

But look how pretty it is!

I'm so proud of myself. I knew a bloom was coming but I'm really excited now that its finally come to flower and that I can see another one shooting up.

Yes, I'm easily amused.

But how can I not be amused, I really thought that after 5 months this plant would be dead.

Where's My Shoulder

I'm finding it increasingly sad that when I have problems there's no one to go to, but when someone needs me I'm always there.

I'm not looking for tea and sympathy, well, maybe I am, or maybe its just reassurance that I want, I don't know, but I've had an odd health problem crop up.

This might not be so worrisome if I HAD HEALTH INSURANCE!

Its nothing major. Its an eye issue, but its left me out of sorts all week. I'm shelling out $55 to see an eye doctor even though I had an exam back in June. I just want to make sure the "floaters" I'm seeing in the bright light are just that, floaters and not something else.

All of this makes me crazier than I already am. And seriously, I don't need to be crazier. I need some sanity in my life.

Why can't I get that? Or at least someone that I can share my fears with? Because right now I'm scared as hell, even though I know I have nothing to be very concerned with.

Top 5 On Friday - Week 193

From Music Memoirs

Top 5 songs with really long titles

The Monkees - Do I Have To Do This All Over Again (Long Title)
Yes, long title is part of the title! Its a fun catchy song by Peter Tork. Its more mature and rocking then the stuff that he usually sung in the band.

The Communards - There's More To Love Than Boy Meets Girl
On the cassettes this song was simply labeled TMTLTBMG and for good reason I think.

The Beatles - Everyone's Got Something To Hide Except Me & My Monkey
This song is really weird too!

Herman's Hermits - There's A Kind Of Hush (All Over The World)
Very long title but a very pretty song

The Moody Blues - Never Blame The Rainbows For The Rain
This one is simply beautiful even though the title is a mouthful!

What are some of the songs you like that have really long titles?

Bank Rant

I have a Money Market savings account at my bank. Its supposed to yield a better return than your avg savings account. I don't keep much money in it, because we all know that I don't have much, but seriously its nice to know what my money is worth at the end of the month.

Each new $100 which is what I try to save each month towards the downpayment on a car is worth an extra...

You want to sit down for this?

I hope you're sitting because the amount is staggering.

2 freaking cents!

Yes, for each $100 I add to my money market savings account, I make 2 whole cents! Isn't that lovely?

If I was borrowing money for them, they'd want more than that back in interest. Somehow I don't think that's quite right.

Its not hardly worth it to keep money in the bank, except that when its in this account I won't spend it, unless I absolutely need too! But I guess its time to transfer over another $100 to that account so I can make $1.10 in interest next month!

Read Any Good Books Lately?

I found this book by Rebecca Wells at Ollie's Bargain Outlet last week. I read the Divine Secret's ages ago..I still need to read the first book Little Altar's Everywhere, but I'll get around to it in time.

There's something marvelous about these books about fucked up southern belle's that just draw the reader in. I'm not sure why though? I've read plenty of books that are similar and this one really isn't different, but regardless I'm really enjoying it.

For all its moments that are leaving me going WTF, it still makes me laugh and that's really what I like the most in a book these days.

And as usual this isn't the only book I'm reading. I always have on in my purse and one in the bathroom, the Ya Ya's are the bathroom book and I have a Nora Robert's trilogy hanging about my work bag for those times at lunch when I need to have some fluff in my life.

So what are you guys reading right now?
