I understand that hearing about my stupid medical situations is probably annoying to everyone. Too bad. It's where I'm at, so I like to use my blog as a venting point, or at least to try to put down what I'm thinking/feeling. I need to get in better touch with my feelings..or so I hear from Dr. Coo-Coo!

I also understand I'm supposedly down a reader. I doubt that. I'm betting that all of my faithful readers will still check in, but now they will be secretive about it! I've spent all this time pumping up the ego, so I'm not going to let it deflate now! :P

Anyhow, I heard two different questions from Dr. Coo Coo that have led me to think about things (as well as wonder what the heck is wrong with the computer that does the analysis on these tests!) Yeah, we're still on the test. One day I'll get all the way through it. :)

So, here's the two questions you never want to hear from your therapist:

1) Were you abused as a child at all? Physically? Sexually?
And, no, I never was (as far as I know...I hear people can do wonders with repression...). Just a really odd thing to say, I thought. Unless I have the classic signs of an abuse victim. Yay, me!

2) Do you have any strange religious beliefs?
Aren't they all? If mine are strange (and I'm Catholic, so it's a pretty good bet), then I've lived under them all my life, and I don't know that they are particularly strange. Although, religious beliefs seem to be, to me, inherently strange. I think (I'm no religious scholar) that nearly every religion has some belief that goes against what could be considered rational thought (or even sanity). Miracles and the like, you know? If I say I believe that 2000 (or so) years ago, a man died after being crucified, came back to life three days later, and then ascended into heaven, does that sound even remotely rational to believe?


The song of the day will be "Now You're a Man" by DVDA. That song kills me! (Not literally, of course...that would be most inconvenient!) Orgasmo was a pretty funny movie, although the humor isn't exactly high-class. Neither am I, though!

A question you'd want even less to hear from a therapist: "Were you abused as a child at all? Physically? Sexually? Mentally? Emotionally? Psychically? Are you sure? Need time to think about it? Maybe there was some cult activity? Raised by wolves? Abducted by the SLA? Forced to watch Nick Jr.? No? Well, maybe we need to talk about denial."

Good luck with the test results.

2-VIII-2007 or I Don't Have an Aunt Flo...

but I had issues! Unfortunately, last week went to Hades, thanks to an unscheduled visit from Uncle Intestinal Discomfort. I was pinned to my bathroom from Wednesday night into Saturday morning, with no internet access, so I was unable to even try to make a showing in the GOO finals. Go »

11-V-2008 or Oh, You Won't Like This...

Random filler is entered here, such that you won't see what is to come on the front page. Not that it would be so bad if you did, but I want people who read this to read this purposely, not accidentally because it was on the front page.

10-VIII-2007 or An Unhappy Call (No Reply)

Well, I'm on my way to kickball, when my mother calls me. She never calls me, so I know right away this is going to be bad. Apparently, the night before, my dad was driving down the road, towing the dunk tank (yes, my dad was towing around a county fair style dunk tank..it's Go »

14-VIII-2006 or "A bombardment?" "An OBSCENE one!!"

Random quote from a movie I watched a few years back called "Il Monstro", which is "The Monster" in Italian. It had that one Italian actor who has been doing most of the comedic roles lately (I think his name is Roberto Begnini, or something close to). It's pretty funny, I think. Go »

17-I-2007 or Henry Rollins ain't got nothing on me!

So, the results are in, and I'm still walking the streets, so that's good...maybe. I really should have seen this coming, but I did exceptional on the test...sort of. Go »

23-VIII-2006 or Please think for me, I can't bear to.

Work is going to kill me! I've been out in the sun too long. I need a quick break. Go »
