[The Wisdom of a Distracted Mind] It's Not That I Don't Care....

I apologize.


I'm such a self-absorbed moron!

I forgot to ask you all what it is that you were doing this weekend, and now I worry that many of you may have forgotten your plans because I wasn't there to remind you (Shhh... Let me have this one, tiny delusion, okay? I sleep better at night knowing you all depend on me for these things).

Hopefully, no one was planning on getting engaged this weekend only to have Friday roll around, and in the mad-dash to Happy Hour, they forgot all about what it was they were supposed to be doing. I'd never forgive myself if I ruined your marriages before they even had a chance to start.

Actually, in all honesty, I'm just typing because my fingers are getting a little stiff and sore, and moving them around helps a little (it's either this or I pick my nose).

By the way, I actually worked out a deal with the good folks at Humira, and they're giving me a supply for an entire year absolutely free. I didn't even have to promise them my liver, my first born or the liver of my first born. So, that's nice. I'm still not sure it's working, but at least we'll be able to find out now as this stuff gets worked into my confused and chaotic system.

Of course, their charity and altruism is hardly going to erase my opinions of this country's health care system and pharmaceutical industry as a whole. They suck. They're corrupt, dysfunctional, and woefully unable to protect a population from even the most common malady. And, even though I'm getting a year's worth for free, the fact remains that a year from now, I'll be right back in the same odd, leaky boat with little or no light at the end of a very long and troubling tunnel.

Anyway, it's a nice thing, nonetheless. But, I don't think that this little slice of kindness is enough to buy my silence or even change my opinion one damned bit.

So, how was your weekend?

  1. Hi !!!!!!!!

    I have to tell you that I enjoy reading your entries. You either make me laugh, smile or you give me something to think about so thanks.

    This weekend I must say that no guys asked me out, I did NOT go shopping and I decided NOT to go out to do anything since its been cold in my neck of the woods. I just stayed home and I tried to stay warm. I am LONGING for the Summertime. Thanks for asking.

  2. Nose picking is good.  Gives your fingers something to do and when you hit the "big one" you get some satisfaction from knowing you got to it before the kleenex.  ;)

  3. I found out what happened to the dogs siezed on Michael Vick's property....But I'm not telling, you'll just have to check out my journal if curiosity get the best of you....(sticks tongue out) One hint, it's excellent, awesome news...(Hugs) Indigo

  4. I had to work and I caught a cold. Other than that, it was pretty good.


  5. Ah ha...see I knew things would work out...

    Well better than the other end! HA!

    I spent mine with my niece...we went to see National Treasure in the dinner & a movie place. Not too bad.

  6. Well, I got engadged, well, not engadged, but I am getting married :p
