Big Headache

January 9, 2012 // Posted in Health, Shopping (Tags: , , , , ) |  No Comments

This morning I woke up with a headache. I thought my coffee would chase it away, but that was an hour ago. Now my head hurts so much that my eyes ache, too. I think this is what a migraine feels like. Maybe I have something in the hall closet that I can take before I have to leave for work, or I might have to stop at Walgreen’s on the way in.

I should probably start to stay away from partying all night long and start focusing on whats important in life but who knows maybe a BIG headache every now and than is a good thing as it reminds those of us who get them just who much we fucked up the night before.

Botched Lines

Do you ever watch a TV show and realize that one of the characters has botched a line but they leave it in anyway? I watch the medical shows and am not a doctor at all, never took a single medical class. But I’ve been around enough people who have been sick or hurt to learn some of the language of the medical community.

I watched the Grey’s Anatomy show tonight and the Chief of Surgery was talking about a patient who died. He botched the line which was mostly medical mumbo jumbo. But I caught it and have to laugh. Even after all the time on the set and in the series, the actor didn’t realize or even have a clue as to what he was saying. After all – he is just an actor and doesn’t need to know the difference, right? No, that’s wrong. Just an actor – who either made a slip of the tongue mistake or who doesn’t care enough about his job to check things out.

More Walking

Is it just me or is everyone using their cars more and getting less exercise? I never seem to walk anywhere any more. I used to walk for a couple of miles to go places and not think twice about it. Now I get in the car to go to the grocery store just 1 mile from my house. Of course, I don’t want to lug all those bags of groceries back to the house uphill. But I could walk more if I would just get out of this bad habit of going directly to the car for everything.

Betty White

Betty White is one hard working senior citizen. She seems to be popping up every where on TV and on the Big Screen as well. She is always on the news and in magazines galore. I even heard that they are trying to get her on the latest Harry Potter film. Isn’t that something. She must be in her eighties and to think that she doing as much as she is at her age it just makes me wonder what her secret is. I’m sure she gets asked that a lot but I’ve never heard her answer. Who knows, the woman might just be flying by the seat of her pants like the majority of us are doing!

Pink Toes

There is noting like spending an hour in a pedi chair and having something take care of your feet. I just love going to get a pedicure. It is the ultimate luxury for me.

There is a little salon just down the street from me. All the women who work there are from Vietnam. One of the girls was obviously born from a Vietnamese mother and black American G. I. Another girl is a very petite and pretty Asian. They both speak English very well to your face, but when they talk to each other it is always in Vietnamese.

But the one who I like best is the older woman. She speaks not English, but she does the best job on shaping my toenails and painting them pink.
