Good morning. It’s 4:25 a.m. and I’m covered head-to-toe in Chef Boyardee mini ravioli. I didn’t do this on purpose, of course. I was trying to consume a ridiculously late dinner that I had to skip eight hours ago due to getting food stuck in my throat, but this time the problem was SEVERE TREMORS in my hands, wrists and fingers. I was eating, carefully, and trying to hold onto that cute Chef Boyardee microwaveable cup when my wrist jerked. Everything landed in the lap of my nightgown except for two ravioli and a shpritz of meat sauce, which sailed onto the memory foam floor mat under my desk.
Double pneumonia and a 104.2° fever could easily be the kiss of death for a senior citizen with diabetes. I’m just saying. We have very shitty immune systems.
Incidentally, that high-powered diuretic was AMAZING, people. I lost 100 pounds of water weight in six days. ONE HUNDRED POUNDS! I was discharged on April 5 and felt like I could fly. Unfortunately, I was also dizzy, dehydrated, weak and trying to get used to severe tremors in my wrists, hands and fingers. (Typing was out of the question. I couldn't even hold a fork to eat.)
I am markedly better today, flying ravioli notwithstanding.
Creative Market. This week we got cartoons of international chefs and lots of little food graphics plus a dozen hand-drawn seamless background patterns.
In addition, we’re also reserving time with Half-Price Geeks to come over and set up both iMacs, make sure they’re properly connected to our Epson WorkForce printer and to each other, transfer files, and get me connected to Adobe’s new Creative Cloud ... a disgusting rip-off that forces me to rent Adobe software by-the-month rather than just buy it like I used to. WHOEVER THOUGHT THIS WAS A GOOD IDEA SHOULD BE SHOT. Now it’s $600 a year for the rest of my life to operate inDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator. And there’s no senior citizen discount, either. Assholes.
There were a few other topics I wanted to cover in this post but I guess they’ll have to wait for another day. It’s nap-time now, and today’s official sleeping movie will be Lured (1947) starring Lucille Ball, George Sanders and Boris Karloff as a mentally ill fashion designer. (I wouldn’t joke about that.)
Thank you for reading this!
