Random Thursday

in i am random

I am SO sorry that I’ve been MIA for the past few days.  Work has been absolutely crazy.  I thought yesterday I was going to have a panic attack because things just kept coming in.  It was terrible, but I did survive to work another day. 🙂

I have a sinus infection. Boo hiss.  I get them several times a year, and I thought (mistakenly of course) that if I started taking a decongestant early enough I could stave off a trip to the doctor.  Yeah right.  After an infuriating bout with my primary care doctor’s receptionist and nurse, I ended up at the ENT.  A much better choice all around because my ENT is awesome.  And he thinks I’m pretty and tells me that every time I come in.  So what if he’s a married late-60s man?  At least someone thinks I’m pretty. 😉

I got a shot in my hip which made me feel a ton better, but it left a giant bruise (at 3 inches in diameter).  I’m resisting showing you the picture because despite it’s ridiculous size, no one needs to see a picture of my pasty skin.

I watched the CMAs last night and was extraordinarily amazed at the number of times Carrie Underwood changed.  I counted 5 outfits before I lost count.  And none of them were particularly pretty in my opinion.  I was also incredibly disappointed in “Remind Me” by Carrie and Brad Paisley.  It’s a terrific song, but the performance wasn’t great.  Luckily, Carrie’s hair totally made up for it.  (Edited to add: go check out The Fug Girl’s take on Carrie’s 10 (!!) costume changes.) Faith Hill was also disappointing in both performance and hair size.  My hair was bigger than hers yesterday (without even trying thank you very much) and I know she has way more secrets hiding in hers than I do. (Name that movie reference.)

I just back posted a recipe for the BEST dinner rolls you will ever eat.  They are SO good, words just fail me in trying to describe them.  You have make them.  Just do it.  And then you’ll understand.

And also, Caty Cat says hi.  And she would like you scratch her belly now.

Of course the Dr. thinks you’re pretty– you are pretty!! Did I tell you about how Rob waxed poetic about how pretty you looked at the wedding!?

1. Sucky about the sinus infection. Never gotten one and never want one. But I LOVE when Dr.s make a fuss about their patients. And you know he’s telling you the truth. Only old men can get away with those types of compliments without getting an unbelievable eyeroll from the ladies 😉
2. I’d pass on the shot. Glad you got it. I would pass out. *needles needles needles eeeeep!*
3. I missed their performance on the CMAs, but I did like the white dress she wore in the beginning. The pink dress I could have passed on… But my, she is a purty thang and very talented! (And Brad was great to look at :D). Aint it a little weird tho that Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert BOTH won big awards? You just know how they were celebrating that night *makes me blush*
4. I JUST LOVE PICTURES OF MY 3RD FAVORITE CAT 😀 😀 Hi Beasty beast! Aren’t you a furry cutie?! 😀

Blake and Miranda both won last year too. I’m fairly certain he made a comment about “celebrating” during his speech. 😉

Caty is glad you think she’s so pretty. But she really wants you to throw the mouse and scratch her belly.
