No Complaints

Feeling very good today. I am reaping the benefits of my cancer. I often joke that if I knew cancer could be so lucrative I would have caught it much earlier. I mentioned in my last post that I got me some gifties in the mail. Now that rocks huge. Today was a great food day. Since I am not getting out much my mom pops over with goodies quite often. Today was a bonus day. It got giant chocolate bars, icy cold watermelon and blueberry scones. That is right. HOMEMADE blueberry scones. These are so delicious they can coax me out of the queasiest of situations. I also ate me a huge pile of Iranian rice a la Mrs. S. Hmmmmm. And then an hour of Rockstar:INXS tonight, which is getting juicier and juicer as the group gets smaller. Life is really good right now.

Rockstar rocked tonight. Nice to hear that you had a feast to enjoy while watching.

It's getting down to the cream of the crop...I think Suzie will get the encore...this time.

It's getting hard to say who they'll drop.

So glad you are feeling better. Nothing like comfort food to help with the cause. We think about you all the time, and send our very best wishes.

Here's to seeing the beauty of life in any circumstance. I know you think you're just talking about food, but you inspire me.

Can it get any better than homemade scones and bad reality TV? I think not!

Congrats on feeling better and being totally punk rock. Henry would be so proud of you. =)

Now I'm a Rockstar groupie, too. Except I didn't have any homemade scones or giant chocolate bars to go with it. That would SO enhance the experience. I'll see what I can work out for tonight. I liked Marty and Suzie last night.

*cowers in embarrassment* I don't have any idea what Rockstar is. Can I still hangout here? I just dropped by to see if you're feeling better, and I'm so glad you are! Blueberry scones are the BEST -- except, maybe for Huckleberry ones. I'm all about berry scones!

Squirl said...

Blueberry scones, huh? And home-made to boot. Does it get any better than that? Glad you're able to eat something.

Good for you for finding the bright side. People are going to start calling you a cock-eyed optomist!

Scones...mmmmmmmm...

Sorry, need to go find a napkin now...

(heh heh my verification word is "tqdude")

God bless you Kranki! So glad to hear you're being spoiled and cared for - as you should be. Thanks for your comment on my blog about the difficulty of leaving your cat to evacuate. I knew you would feel that way. I come from a LONG line of pet lovers (pets get better treatment than people with most of my tribe). Leaving them for higher ground must have been traumatic - if not impossible for many people.

closet M-you should have seen me. Chocolate, warm blankie and the cat all flaked out on the couch. Bliss.

milliner-suzie rocked but I think Jordis might get the encore. Hmmm. We'll find out tonight.

shoshie-I am really comforting out lately. It is lovely. I hope you are doing ok. Thinking of you all so much.

kakli-thanks for saying that. I actively try to find stuff to be thankful for everyday. I would get depressed otherwise.

scottygee-Henry is my man. If he woudl be just a little proud of me I would be honoured.

susie-you gotta have the muchie food for Rockstar. Glad to hear you are hooked too. Rock out!

eclectic-you can totally hang out here. You can be the voice of reason when we get too caught up in it all.

squirl-my mom make the BEST homemade scones. I am so lucky.

ern-or just cockeyed!

bucky-*DROOL*

easty-I am the BIGGEST suck for animals. I would NEVER leave my baby. I have to give her kisses now.

abcd said...

Scones and candy will cure just about anything. I hope today finds you feeling better. The very best to you.

Nikki-youa re so right! Balm for a sore soul.

I like Jordis - she's from St. Paul!!! I think the talent on Rock Star is much better than American Idol, but I like all of the drama and hoopla associated with Idol, so it's still my fave.

Isn't it funny how cancer teaches you to appreciate things? Even the small stuff. Glad you're feeling well!
