A Little Whining, A Little Fun

Well, I'll give you the whiny update first. I went to the ENT doc yesterday only to find they had sent me to the wrong office and I couldn't get to the correct one in time. So I will be seen next Tue by ENT. I'm assuming it's a confirm of shingles on the trigeminal nerve as they just want to be sure. My symptoms are not "classic" shingles - at least not following most of the readings I've read. My body is behaving like a cat once you open a door for it. Hmm....maybe I'll have shingles....well....maybe!....yes...I'll have shingles....but then again.....

The steroids have given me something my cousin Monica terms "Roid Rage". That one made me laugh out loud. But my temper is shorter (is that possible?) and my cry-at-the-drop-of-a-hat trigger is over worked. My brother is on steroids for medical problems and he understands the rage to weeping thing - confessing he has found himself teary while watching Star Trek. While sad, that visual did get a chuckle from me! Yesterday, I just walked around on the verge of tears all day. So it didn't' take much. Toilet paper didn't rip on the perforation? WAAAAAAHHHH!!!! Insanity.

A bit of a light red blotchy rash on the left check/jaw area. Nothing profound. It was more pronounced yesterday. Can't really see it today. Again, my body just can't make up its mind. I'm bagging social events. Probably will bag church tomorrow but am not sure. That's the one place I actually WANT to be.

Ok, I need a bit of light fun. And I saw this tag on a couple of my pals' blogs. So I'll take the tag.

Go to Wikipedia and type in your Birthday Month and day only.
October 20th - the day it all began folks!

List 3 Events that occurred that day.
(There were tons so I picked 3 that I like. I love LOTR - I'm a dork. When I shave my legs, I usually announce that I'm pretty sure I'm half Hobbit and half Sasquatch so the Big Foot thing is close to my heart. And come on, who doesn't love Jakie O?)
1. 1955 - Publication of The Return of the King, being the last part of The Lord of the Rings
2. 1967 - A purported bigfoot is filmed by Patterson and Gimlin. Frame 352 from the film, allegedly capturing a "bigfoot" mid-stride.
3. 1968 - Former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy marries Greek shipping tycoon Aristotle Onassis.

List 2 important Birth days
(well, MINE, duh! I won't try to impress you with any people with world significance. In stead, I will list the ones that I found most amusing.)
1. 1958 - Viggo Mortensen, American actor (who knew he was that old?!)
2. 1971 - Snoop Dogg, American rapper (The Dogg Father is younger than me??)

List 1 Death.
(I will cheat here)
1. 1977 - Members of the American rock group Lynyrd Skynyrd killed in a plane crash:
- Cassie Gaines (b. 1948)
- Steve Gaines (b. 1949)
- Ronnie Van Zant (b. 1948)

List a Holiday or Observance. (if any):
(list this under "Who Knew?" I will now know to serve calcium supplements at all furture birthday bashes!)
1. World Osteoporosis Day

Oh and I tag anyone who wants to take a fun harmless meme on.

Your cat comment made me smile. So, true!

As for who knew Viggo Mortenson was that old, I'll let you know: Viggo fanatics like me. I make it my business to know that sort of thing.

I'm so sorry you are on the "roller coaster"! I hope you were feeling well enough to get to Church. I love Sunday's for that reason!

Beck said...

Viggo AND Snoop Dogg! Good grief, Viggo is nearly the same age as my mom.
Roid Rage. Ha. I hope you're feeling better, though.

Angela Marie said...

I hope that you are feeling better! How long does something like this last?

Hi love,

medicinal rage of any kind is not fun....I know, then add hormonal fluctuations and EEEK!

Let's just say...there are days when my dog sits on the other couch. Hey, your supposed to be women's best lap warmer! Traitor

Saying prayers and hoping you can soon find relief from all of this.

love to you
