Oh yay, thanks to Lori, I get to see the entire season of Firefly for the first time! And Serenity!

Oh yay, thanks to my uterus, I get to use my DivaCup for the first time!

Oh yay, thanks to my uterus, I will NOT be cramping on my birthday!

Oh yay, thanks to my uterus, I get to use my HagRag!

Oh yay, thanks to Lori, I have my meds! and my groceries from work!

If you've ever considered using the non disposable menstrual napkins, I highly recommend this site, by the way! Affordable - ADORABLE, and the site's owner, Tanya, is beyond wonderful!

I didn't actually see a doctor yesterday, per se, but a nurse practitioner. He was beyond nice and we joked around muchly. I just really wish I wouldn't have kept doing this weird thing where I kept giving him two thumbs up after a bunch of my sentences.

(Have I mentioned that I'm socially awkward at times?)


He prescribed me something for the dizziness and a gel for the rosacea. When I went to get them filled, I was informed that the pills were not covered by my insurance and were $11.99. The gel? $179.99!!! For a 30 day supply, yo! I almost wet myself in the middle of Barnes & Noble when they told me over the phone. After some recalculating, they got it down to just under $40.. and while I was more excited about the gel than the not being dizzy (priorities!) I could only afford one or the other for the next couple of days, so got the pills. Apparently, they don't cure anything other than dizziness, and will knock me on my ass when I take them.

(At least I'm not working.)


So my birthday is on Wednesday! Any of you local yocals want to get together for lunch or something? We generally hit Taste of Asia in downtown Vancouver since it's free for birthday girls and boys around! Or maybe get together for something else? I'm open to ideas, really. I don't know why, but this is the first birthday in years that I have WANTED to do something other than stuff myself to bursting with eight different kinds of meat.

I do the " " thing with my fingers when I'm in a stupid social situation and all awkward. I do it on here a lot to by putting everything in quotes and italics. I suck.

Ooh, I love my cloth pads, but I've never ventured into Diva Cup territory.

I figured I'd try both and received both in the mail a day or two after my last period stopped - this is the first time that I've ever looked FORWARD to bleeding. So far, the cup is good, though I can feel it when I walk. I'm sure it will just take practice. I have my hagrag (with caterpillars!) on for backup!

Haha those pads are an addiction and everyone says they look forward to bleeding if it means they get to bleed on Hello Kitty or something.

I'd do something; don't think I could do lunch though, at least in downtown Couv, due to that pesky day job.

hahahaha, I've been doing thumbs up a lot lately too. I'm just as awkward!

I guess it was better than the time that I had to meet the guy that was one or two places removed from the biggest cheese of my company and i kept WINKING at him after anything I said! Oi!

I find myself doing that annoying quote thing with my fingers, like that girl in Say Anything:

"Lloyd Dabler? How did that [finger quotes]happen[/finger quotes]?"
