Well, Blue, the woman killed in DC turned out to be a BLACK woman. So much for your theory she was some tea bagger upset over obamacare, huh? You gonna say now how crazy liberal Obama supporters are? Shut you up, didn't it?

America has the best healthcare system in the WORLD! Why do you think Mexicans flock here? Why do you think Canadians flock here? Why do you think most doctors here are foreigners? All Obamacare is gonna do is DECREASE healthcare for Americans.
Time will tell. The negative effects will take a while to show. We'll see who's right, but I wouldn't break out the champagne just yet.
Wrong. We do NOT have the best healthcare system int he world. Mexicans come here for work and education. Canadians don't flock here -- they LOVE their health care (you don't even know a single Canadian personally, I know many). They typically come here to work only because they're engaged or married to an American.

but they keep their Canadian healthcare -- They go back home for serious stuff.

I thought of you guys and the four-way stop debate when I watched How I Met Your Mother this week and the group had their WORST FIGHT EVER, over what was more cute/loveable: A bunny or a duck.

I'm not getting caught up ont he last few pages.

Weekend plans: last night, Nick came over and we went out to eat and he took me to Walmart to pick up some things, and Petco to get a new tower for the cats. Then he fixed my computer. I sent him home with two big pans of homemade brownies (one for the cabin closer today--I roasted walnuts for thsoe brownies!).

Today: A friend is bringing me lunch and a big bag of weed!:D

I had my first cocktail in a week last night (my care coordinator told me I can have a drink -- and it was really with the tone of, "need a drink, have one, but no boozing it up"). I won't be allowed to drink once I get on more meds so I wanted to enjoy one while I can. I think it played a role in helping me to sleep through the entire night (first time in weeks). It was wonderful.

Tomorrow: Keep cleaning. I can do only so much at a time before I have to sit down and catch my breath. I wish they'd sent me home with a nebulizer. I have an inhaler to use up to four times a day, and my Xanax (anti-anxiety, but it has to do with breathing as well somehow) is for bedtime only, but a neb would help a lot.

so I basically sit at the computer and play wow, and take frequent breaks to do small things.

Walking down my long hallway leaves me winded.

This is so surreal!!!

And I'm hungry! I splurged and bought comfort foods to encourage me to eat. Peanut butter capn crunch, toaster strudel (!), etc. I ate more yesterday than I've eaten in a month in a single day. Nick even was happy with that.

Nick is stoic like me, but he admitted that he nearly broke down in the showers at the gym yesterday.:(

they're both cute but I do like duck on the plate better. my brother here hunts and I had antelope last night. it was very good. I know, off the subject but you made me think of roast duck.

you are right. To compare Mexico to Canada is just stupid, anyway.

I don't think the problem with illegal immigration from our southern border will get much better unless/until the countries supplying us with those people change/improve.

HA! Did you watch "friends" when it was on?

When Phoebe is carrying triplets as a surrogate for her brother and his wife, she has a craving for meat (and she's vegetarian), and she's racked with guilt. So Joey -- the ultimate carnivore -- offers to go vegetarian during her pregnancy so she can eat meat, but she's eating the meat HE would eat, so no additional animals would be killed.

It was so damn sweet of him!

One of Nick's regular bday gifts from me is a subscription to Outdoor News, which is a newspaper of hunting/fishing stuff in MN.(It's *excellent*-- very well written.)

We love the "cuffs and collars" page that lists all the Conservation Officer activities, and they don't keep it strictly professional, which is fun. The last one I read mentioned that the CO checked on a group of bow hunters but they reported not having any luck other than catching a porcupine, which one of the guys dressed, cut up, and made stew out of, and the CO reported that it was the most delicious wild game dish he'd ever eaten.

What a cool experience -- the CO obviously is a supporter of hunting and fishing or he wouldn't do that for a living, and that the hunters he checked on offered some of their wild game food, and he accepted it.

my brother once spent thousands to get an elk, and he missed it. altho he is an excellent marksman. eats everything he does get and spends serious money to do it. SIL is getting a little tired of game. but she's letting him put the antelope head over the tv. not my idea of decor.

Brownies sound awesome. You could have mixed them up with some of that stuff you got in the baggie at lunch.:)(I know, I've heard you can't just put pot in brownies, it's more extract (I think).) Heh. Closing the cabin would have been epic.

Good to see you here.

Look at it this way: at least this didn't happen during softball season because you would be sh*t at running the bases.

You have been inundated I am sure ( and if the weather reports are accurate that is probably true literally and metaphorically). I sent you a PM the other day with more than just good wishes.

That would be the biggest fight Nick and I ever had: Over a deer head. I'd ban it from the house (it can go int he garage), he'd want it in the living room.

You know, this softball season, I did suck at running. I'd run to first, get thrown out on a gronder, and I could barely get my breath back enough to get back to the bench. I just thought "wow, I guess I'm getting older/more out of shape" or something.

But good news: I ate an entire frozen pizza tonight! My appetite has been awful the past few weeks, and I often have to force myself to eat a little something. Granted, the pizza was one of those rather small organic Amy's brand pizzas (it was freakin' delicious), but I ate it all. nick was really happy.

Kinda funny. Eating a whole one was not something that made me proud but now it does!

Is anyone else interested in that Tom Hanks Somali pirate movie? I'm trying to find people to go tomorrow to see the matinee.

can I assume that hospitals now have wifi, so I can bring my ipad with me to these procedures? I don't want to have to get a smart phone for the coming weeks/months just to be able to surf the 'net.
