I Blame Joab

Actually, there's no reason to, other than I can. For once the boy isn't involved. But he's a boy, and it's all their fault. But back to the point...

I've started watching Korean dramas. I feel my life-blood being slowly sucked away, but oh! it is worth it!

I'm watching Full House, which is awesome.

I've decided I'm going to have the good looking guy. He won't get the girl at the end, so that's ok.

He looks even better when he wears glasses, but I can't find a picture. Sorry. Kal said, "He's good looking the rest of the time, but when he wears the glasses, it's like he suddenly aquires intelligence, character, and integrity." And hotness. Just my opinion there.

We started today reading the comments at the end of an episode. Very funny! People are swearing at the characters, saying how one of them 'is not my favourite' (inside joke) etc etc. Some choice (non-swearing) comments:

"*angry face* you can't protect her if you're by Hye Won's side dummy!"
"why is he so jerck heis the king of jercks"
"I think ji-eun's friend ain't really pregnant. It has been how many months and yet her stomach is still FLAT. how is that even possible?"

"all haters hav to calm down. take a breath, just a drama." - Spoil sport.

A Virus Walks Into A Bar

So, Drs appointment. I am HEAPS better. My meds are going down. Yay!

My allergy tests show that I don't have a problem with gluten (guess who's gonna be gorging on pasta?)! I do have problems with:

- Dust mites
- Artificial food colourings

That's it for now, but I need to be careful about what I eat, because I am "sensitive" (drs words) and might react to something that I wasn't tested for that I haven't had recently.

Dr said I could use more protein to build up muscles (he clearly hasn't seen my arms. If I build up any more I'll look like Creighton) and so I'm to start drinking soy occasionally. He recommends occasional meat, but I really can't stomach it. Gross. So soy it is.

So hopefully all will be good, and I can use my massive muscles to beat up on boys. Guess who's on my list? :P

General Update

As I'm sharing the laptop with Kallie (who actually owns it) blogging may be even more sporadic than normal. But here's a general update on life in the mind of Sam.

- Now that I'm allergic to everything, there is nothing I can eat at church lunch. Seriously, the strawberries were the best bet in terms of producing the least bad alergic reaction. Sam didn't eat.
- Drs appointment tomorrow. Will get full allergy results, will be changing my meds and will be forking out about $400.
- The silkworms are eating us out of house and home. Doug Phillips said in one of his sermons (I think I'm linking to the right one) about hamsters being multi-generational thinking run amuk. Ha! I laugh at his hamsters. Two generations of silkworms in, and about a hundred offspring. Should only half of next years eggs hatch we will have about 500. And so far, only 5 caccoons have hatched.
- To solve this problem, Kallie and I thought about getting the silkworms to turn cannibal. We proposed naming the survivor Joab.
- Speaking of whom, the boy's grown a mo for Movember.
- Surviving Ladybug is no longer surviving.
- Sam had 2 panic attacks at church last week (15th Nov). The second of which had me screaming and running away from Auntie Wing. Word to the Wise - when I say, don't touch me, I've just had a panic attack, then that is not a good time to be giving me a hug.
- Kien's pretty much completely gray.
- I laugh at FC's idea of Hukka being frugal/stingy. Much in the same way I laughed about silkworms and hamsters.
- I bought a blender. I now blend everything. I love it. Want a fruit smoothie anyone? Nectaries and strawberries are very nice and are available to anyone who doesn't meanly try and stop me from eating delicious foods that cause me to have hives
- Hopefully will be able to start catching up with more people now that I don't have to use all of the weekend for recovering. Wesley people especially, because I don't get to see them at church.

That's it for now... I think!

Allergies, Allergies

Because I had such a wonderful weekend last weekend, I didn't exatly obey my dr about the no casein. Hey - my weekend began with us getting robbed. And then it went downhill.

So I ordered a four cheese pizza. I ate three slices.

I was SO SICK.

Woke up several times that night, and felt like vomitting for the next three days. I still have the residual flemmy cough. Yay, my favourite.

So, I won't be doing that again.

But I thought I'd let you all know the awesome news about my allergies and dairy avoidance.

Sam has the flattest stomach she has had... ever!

I'm not saying I wasn't skinny, because I was (and am). But my stomach would swell quite substantially after food, leaving me looking like I was several months along, especially with the rest of me being so tiny.

Now, my tummy is flat! Yay for flat tummies!

Also, I can exercise now. I actually made it through more of a exercise DVD than I could BEFORE I had pneumonia. Result: the crazy girl has exercised every day since Sat, except Tues, and that was a staff meeting night.

So, no dairy. None at all. But I'm less certain about abstaining from all those strawberries...

Our Babies - The Stick Insects

Our Babies (And Grandbabies!) - The Silkworms...

We Got Robbed

The title says it all. I came home on Friday to notice my alarm clock was off. I thought, hmm, no power. Except the kettle was boiling. I looked down to the power cord, and noticed that it was looking more spartan than usual. I looked up, and noticed that my laptop was not where I normally put it. And neither was the case. Or the cord.

They also nicked my ipod cord, my camera ords, and tried to nick my camera, but they dropped it in the Rebel's room.

Kallie lost two cameras. Rebel her laptop.

So I'm in the market for a new laptop.

As if my week hadn't been eventful enough.
