So this link gave me a wonderful chance to laugh my rear end off. I thought I'd share with my wonderful blog readers a little bit of humor, a lot of the muppets and, another favorite of mine, classical music. My favorite is the second one with the swedish chef, the crazy drummer dude and Beaker. I'm still laughing....
Muppets do classical *does a double take, blink* what the...*rolls on the laughing* OMG! OMG! OMG!!!!!!! Muppets rock!

- Current Mood: but tired.
- Current Music:Dude, did I mention the Muppets?
To think I was going to be a doctor. I'm not sure I could handle these people with a straight face. I bet they get so used to it though. I think the worse I ever heard was a guy who came up to my friend, a receptionist at a hospital, who was reluctant to say why he needed to be seen by the ER doctor. She finally managed to coax out of his wife that he had stuck a screwdriver up his rear. HIS REAR! I guess that's one way of being screwed...
It's ok folk, I'm here all weekend. Please leave a tip if you enjoyed yourself tonight. Please do not throw tomatoes. They may have salmonella, you know! *grin*
Ok, ok so I'm not funny. Just read the link. Try not to laugh, I dare you!

Tonight is Tanabata, a festival celebrated in Japan on the Seventh day of the Seventh month. Per the wiki link:
Tanabata (七夕, tanabata?), meaning "Evening of the seventh") is a Japanese star festival, derived from the Chinese star festival, Qi Xi (七夕 "The Night of Sevens")．
It celebrates the meeting of Orihime (Vega) and Hikoboshi (Altair). The Milky Way, a river made from stars that crosses the sky, separates these lovers, and they are allowed to meet only once a year on the seventh day of the seventh lunar month of the lunisolar calendar. Since the stars come out at night, the celebration is held at night.
I remember first hearing about this tale in Thailand when Sunset at Chaophraya or Khu Gam had a scene where the main character played by my all time favorite Thai singer/actor Thongchai McIntyre or Pi' Bird captured a firefly and placed in the hair of his lady love and told her the story of two star-crossed lovers who only meet once a year in the Milky Way. The lovers he is speaking of is, of course, Vega and Altair. The Chinese fairytale is actually well known throughout Asia and is beloved by all lovers who feel that they are destined to be together but are kept apart.
This is similiar to how I feel that Ueda-kun and I are. *sighs dramatically hand to forehead* Oh, but if only we could meet but once a year, my love. Ok, ok, so he has no clue who the heck I am and if he did he'd run the other way... A girl (in these instances aren't we all girls?) can dream can't she? I know what I will be wishing for tonight as the heavenly lovers meet for their yearly tryst in the Milky Way. May all my readers' dreams of love and life come true.
Oh, and a belated Happy Birthday to the United States and Akanishi Jin. My 4th was spent drugged up on vicodin and asleep. I made the mistake of tripping over a power cord that was in the walkway at work and according to my co-worker my head went for the glass windows and my body went a different way. The ER doc that night fixed me up and gave me drugs! Woohoo! Well, not really I'm not a fan of vicodin especially after spending all day asleep on the 4th. I get to spend today at my doctor's office making sure no permanent damage was done. Hopefully you all had a better 4th of July! In celebration here is the next installment. Last time we learned about Ted's home life now it's Anne's turn.

I know all this but it doesn't help the hurt I feel when I have to deal with people who only judge a book by it's cover. It hurts to be looked at an pitied. It hurts to get glared at when I park in a handicap parking spot because I don't look sick. Some days I think it would be easier if I just get a wheelchair or have a limb missing. At least then people KNOW you are handicapped. Then all you have to do is deal with the pity or the insincere offers of help.
I am really not trying to be bitter here but I'm just tired of being tired. I'm tired of being in pain and trying to explain myself to people who look me in the eye and tell me I'm lying. The person I am talking about has no reason not to believe me. He sees me when I'm limping around the house. He saw me after I had major surgery and could barely walk without gasping in pain. He saw me when all I could eat for a week was water and Saltine crackers. He's knows that there are days I can't get out of bed and spend the entire day asleep.
AND HE STILL LOOKED ME IN THE EYES AND SAID THAT HE DOESN'T BELIEVE I AM SICK. THAT I MUST HAVE ALL 4 DOCTORS I SEE ON A REGULAR BASIS FOOLED.
Gee, I didn't know I was that great an actress. Maybe I should move to Hollywood and win an Oscar.
*sigh* Ignorance is one thing. At least you can be taught. Outright stupidity...
I am not even going to bother trying.
That is your loss not mine. So to all you readers out there remember the person next you may not look sick but could have cancer, lupus, or fibromyalgia. All we ask is that you TRY to empathize. I would never want anyone I love to have to go through what I do on a daily basis. It's not fun. May you never have to go through being chronically ill, but if you do then know that at least I understand and empathize.
Please check out the Spoon Theory. It's a great story and the website forum is awesome if you need support or need to know what it's like for a chronically ill person. If you are dealing with bad heath or know someone who is then my heart goes out to you. For all of you who are healthy thank God, Allah, Buddha, and any other diety you'd like because your good health is a blessing. You may not always have it so please appreciate it and take care of it.

Just made in time. It's been a long day and it's going to turn into a long week. I'm finally back to being a semi-productive member of society. Yay! I think? Ask me tomorrow after I've gotten some sleep. Or better yet this weekend AFTER this week is over. So this installment will show a bit of Ted's home life. Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoy this installment.
- Current Location:going to bed!

So here is the fifth installment. People begin to converge and more of the plot comes out. You all will finally get to meet Pete, who is based on YamaPi. I love YamaPi, but I really have a hard time writing based on him as I can't seem to find much on him. Anyone have some news or personality traits of Yamashita Tomohisa to pass on? Please do. It will help me. Thank you and thank you for reading. I really wish those of you all over the world would leave a comment to at least say hi!

Ok, for all those who are concerned I do live in Des Moines, Iowa and yes we are flooded. My home is on a hill with it's own septic tank (we live in the middle of the city but it's in an area that is slightly country) so we are pretty high and dry. Downtown which is about 5 miles away from me and it a pain to get to right now. They main artery road that goes into downtown and connects to the north part of town is flooded out. It lookes like the road suddenly goes into a lake and then emerges about a mile later. The easiest way around is to go out to West Des Moines and travel in. Right now they are asking people to stay away from downtown and any flooded areas. We are looking at the river cresting soon so that will help us but God help St. Louis. I hear we are getting more rain this weekend though so that's a big concern. *sigh* And to think I used to be like I'm glad I don't live in Cali when all the fires and earthquakes were going on. Yup, we get tornados here in Iowa but not in the city were I live. It's very rare. I do hope any of my loves ones here and everywhere are safe. Please try to check in if you can so I know you are ok. Thanks a bunch. To all those concerned in other States, thank you. I will try to post updates to let you know we are ok.
