Happy International Surfing Day!
Today is a day to go and celebrate the ocean. (If you live near it.) Whether you live near it or not, you can join Surfrider Foundation today
and get your name printed in Surfing Magazine. It's a fantastic cause and just for being that charitable dude that you are, you'll get a t-shirt for your effort.

...just got hit by a car. I was walking back from depositing a check at the bank and I was in the middle of the cross-walk and some dude almost mowed me down. It's not like he couldn't see me clear as day before he turned. WEIRD!

Last night, Amy called me last minute and asked me to be her date to the Young Dubliners show....we kinda crashed Mike and Deanne's date, but a good time was had by all.
Here are my two fave pics:
Whole set here
I've determined that when I'm dealing with stress, my outlet is cooking. Nothing extravagant, just things that I can give other people. In the past twelve hours I have made a pasta salad, homemade chocolate chip cookies, a fruit salad and pesto.
I'm not really sure what I'm stressed about exactly, but holy hell if I'm not antsy as shit.

My Mom - The Photographer
My parents attended a Scottish Festival last weekend and I was looking at the pics my mom took. Of course, there's virtually none of the two of them, but lots of dogs. (And I wonder where I get it from?) Anyway, I really really loved one of her pics. I know she snapped it randomly, but it just screams "Mom" to me. In the muddyness and heat, my Mom found a little girl making her own fun - which is exactly how I would describe my mom. She is the lady that makes me believe in positive thinking. I love this photo:
Plus she named it "Puddle Dancing." I'm so glad I'm her daughter.

The first prescribed medication from my doctor did not work and I woke up this morning at death's door. Stood up, checked my e-mail and immediately had to lie back down to try and conjure enough energy to get in the shower. Whose body was this? Right then, my phone rang and it was Mom. Glorious, wonderful Mom. She was able to break through the total weirdness that my brain was engaged in and talked me into calling the doctor and getting on antibiotics.
Honestly, I don't know why I fear taking medication. But I absolutely fear it. I haven't taken an antibiotic in at least ten years. So, I guess I'm afraid of the effects it would have on my body. But, anything was better than how I felt this morning. I am now on evil antibiotics.
Fine, they're not evil. Because I honestly feel a tiny bit better than I did. It's only been 10 hours...guess they take at least a full day to kick in. Tomorrow, I will probably be singing and dancing in praise of antibiotics. I just want to feel normal again. I feel SO WEIRD. Like I have no control over my entire body. And it can't all be a six-week festering sinus infection. I know it's both physical and mental.
I feel like I'm walking around with a giant head like that dude on the Great Space Coaster
. (I'm guessing only 30-something East Coast readers are gonna get that one.) He looked like this:
Anyway, every time I sleep for a while, I feel a bit better. Me. Sleeping. Miracle. I go from one crazy ailment to the other. I'd gladly trade back insomnia for this bad boy I have going on right now. Stupid bugs, germs, bacteria, crappity do dah. I'm gonna kick your ass. You watch!

Sicky Sickerson (There was a little frost in hell today)
I started to feel really really really shitty on Sunday evening. By Sunday night I had the chills, a fever, full-body ache, nausea and stomach ick. Felt like I was dying. I could barely sit up, let alone get out of bed yesterday. It was AWFUL. I never get sick and never in such a debilitating way. I'd wake up for 10 minutes, feel pukey and fall back asleep. Wasted an entire day in bed, sleeping. So beyond my realm of normal, it's not even funny.
Woke up this morning and still felt ick, but better. Forced a shower, which required a lot of leaning on the wall, and then drove to work. By the time I got to my desk, I felt like death again. Decided that this was it...time to suck it up and actually go to a doctor, because I can handle *a* day of being off like that, but no more. Went to a general practitioner for the first time in over 10 years today! Still had a fever, and it turns out I have let a sinus infection go on for well over a month. I just thought I was a frequent stop on the giant green-and-yellow booger train. Plus, I'm rocking some dehydration as well. I'm like a rock star! A sick one.
