A friend of mine is dying. She has Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. She started feeling dizzy in July, by August she couldn't drive and had to wall walk to keep her balance. She is now in the hospital and has days or possible weeks to live. I am completely shocked. I just saw her earlier this year and she was fine.

Gekko, I'm so, so very sorry.

Oh, no. That's terrible. I'm so sorry. I hope the end comes as peacefully as possible.

I'm rather fond of skirts with a lot of flare, and those straight up and down slips feel restrictive and the short ones feel weird under a full skirt. And why do they have to be so plain?

If I had a working sewing machine, the time and money, I would make slips (or 2 or 3) for all my skirts and dresses. They will either match the fabric or be in a complimentary color with a cut that will work well with that style. And every single one will have attractive hems worthy of showing if I desire.

But it will probably never happen. I have too many plans, not enough hours in the day.


Um...we're supposed to wear slips?

We are not friends. I do not like you. I do not even want to be seen in public with you or have other people think that we are friends. You are crazy and have zero social skills and your table manners are even pretty disgusting.

I unfriended you on Facebook because WE ARE NOT FRIENDS AND I DO NOT WANT TO BE FRIENDS WITH YOU.

You panicked to a mutual friend that I had unfriended you and wondering if our friendship was strong enough to survive this.

One problem.

WE ARE NOT FRIENDS. I DO NOT LIKE YOU.

You emailed me begging me to add you back and offering me free tickets to shows.

This makes me feel incredibly sorry for you and wonder if you actually have any real friends.

That's a horrible disease. I saw someone with it one time. Shocking.

So irritated with my coworkers right now! I work in a very small office (3 of us total) and this the 2nd time in 2 weeks that I have been the first one to the office only to find someone waiting for one of my coworkers because they forgot about their meeting. So here I sit with a lady sitting in front of me waiting for my coworker who is now 40 minutes late. Ugh!!

I'm sorry gekko. It's hard losing friends, especially so quickly.

I had a lunch date with a long time friend on a pretty summer day and he never showed, which was not the norm ever. He died while getting in his car to come meet me. Even tho we only saw each other every couple years, I haven't quite gotten over it.

If they made those slipper in big sized I would so get them for my sister and me.

I haven't worn or owned a slip in decades.

I wish they would get rid of the vending machine. If it wasn't here I would never eat candy!

So sorry, gekko. Sounds awful.

I like slips. I rarely need one, but when I do, it's invaluable.

I just wacked myself in the face with the phone. I was trying to answer it, it slipped & I sorta caught it, but wacked it into my cheek/ear area. Ow.

I've really got to get on the ball and make that no soliciting sign for the door. I see you making your rounds and when you do ring my bell the dog is gonna go NUTS.

Going door to door is creepy and scary these days, stop it.

Ugh, I hate those people. If I'm home alone I try to hide and act like no one's home, but we have a big living room window that the couch is against and it looks right onto our front porch. I've been known to slide off the couch and lay on the floor till they leave. Wow that sounds so pathetic!

Wow, that would be hard. I feel so bad for her family, her husband died just a year ago, her sister lost a son the year before that. That poor family, so much in such a short amount of time.

That's totally NOT pathetic and I would 100% do the same thing and feel ridiculous doing it.

Thankfully I can hide out and just let Calvin bark and not answer the door. Thank goodness for window blinds.

These are creepy looking men walking around with some sort of book. Uhhh, no thank you.

You could print this out and tape it to your door:

Ow ow ow, my hand! This is going to burn for a few days.
I spent four hours doing two quarts of brunoise jalapeños. I clean them with gloves, but I can't do that fine a cut with gloves on. The gloves slip and get caught under the blade.
Observe my little piles of julienned jalapeño waiting to be brunoised:

FINALLY!

I know where I'll be going to school in the spring semester, they have a major that I'm REALLY excited about, AND I got a nice chunk of scholarship money!

ETA: OH, and it's an easier commute than the last two schools I was looking at! I'm a little sad I won't be at a school in the city, but I'm NOT sad that I won't have to make that commute each day.

Things are finally starting to work out.
