And….I’m back!

This blog has been serevely neglected but I have a good excuse.  I’ve been hermitizing at home with a kidney infection which produces (among other things) the following symptoms:

  • Emesis: Vomiting is common.
  • Back, side (flank) or groin pain.
  • Abdominal pain or pressure.
  • Shaking chills and high spiking fever.
  • Night Sweats.
  • Extreme Fatigue.
  • Oh, the extreme fatigue.  I went into the ER early Wednesday morning with extreme back pain but with some antibiotics, Oxycotin, and two litres of saline later, I was discharged to go sleep it off. And I slept and I slept and I slept.  I slept so much that my cat got irritated with me. 

    On my first night out of the house past 11 (Saturday), I went to see ‘Hey Girl!’ with some friends which was a show that can only be described as ‘experimental feminist theater’.  Now, if I’m going to haul myself out of the house after I’ve just had a kidney infection, it’d better be for something worthwile and while this was visually interesting, the message was irritating.  I think I lost all hopes of respect for the show when 30 guys came out and hit the girl with black pillows.  I whispered to my companion “Being a girl isn’t that hard”.  (at least not usually).  But my thoughts on feminism warrent a totally seperate entry so….

    ….now that I’m well, I have a mind full of projects to get started on.

    1.  Sew pretty dress for two weddings I will be attending this spring/summer.

    2. Become a marketing/copywriting titan

    3. Focus more on music.

    4. Plan trip to NYC/Europe

    5. Not get another kidney infection.
