The sun is shining, and I'm drinking a hot cup of coffee and eating a pistachio muffin. Mmmmmmmmmmmm I figure it's a good time to catch you up on what's what.
I'm sure you've read it yourself but Gary is getting better and better. Yay Gary! He told me he was flipping cards yesterday as part of his therapy. You know what that means? HE CAN PLAY POKER! That's what I think anyway, unless he's a chicken! Buck-Buck! Of course, I'll wait until he's home and all.
Cranky-licious and I went to see Gary last week. It was great to see her as well! She picked me up near work and I almost didn't make it into her car.
She drives a Honda Element but its insides are modified to accomodate her wife's wheelchair. (note* Very Josie's needs where never taken into consideration when this decision was made.) So Anywhoo, because of this, I had to ride in the back, and um, I had to GET in the back. Remember the bad knees? Remember I'm short?
It was a huge step up to get into the back and um, my knee was saying "um nope" but then Cranky "gave me a hand" and put me into the back seat. See illustration below.
(Grrr the photo thingy isn't working!)
When we got to the hospital Gary was in full act mode. This was Cranky's first visit so Gary decided to act like a drooling idiot. (anyone?) It was so mean! Poor Cranky took it in stride until Gary started laughing. We had a great visit with a lot of laughs.
As for football...I had my biggest number on Thursday night's game and I won. *whew* I really need a big week. I have this week and next week until the half year totals are in and I need to make up some points. I'm 30points behind first place and I have (2) side bets going on...with guys who lose year after year but this year the 3 of us are within 5 points of each other. All those upsets really effed with me.
Adam, a guy I used to work with, has always lost to me in this league and now he's 4 points ahead of me. WTF. Hopefully he'll be owing me $20 in 2 weeks.
And the other guy...the guy that runs the pool...the guy who named it Anyone Wins But Josie....that fucker. He came in 2nd place last week and now he has a couple more points than I do. I need to stop this bleeding.
Below are my picks for this week.
05 Tampa Bay
* I almost went with Tennessee for this game but before I did, I consulted with my Tennessean Expert. He convinced me that Tennessee would lose. He said they onl won last week because the other team sucked ass. No, that's not an exact quote, but close enough for government work. I swear if I lose my 1 Point, someone is in big effing trouble! Every point counts right now.
BTW WAFFLES was just posting about how his doctor wants his Vitamin D checked. Weird, because Evan's doctor just called. Evan had a physical last week and it seems his Vitamin D levels are very low. Doctor said it was not related to diet at all but Sugar Bear needs to be outside more. So he's taking vitamin d twice a week and spent yesterday cleaning the back yard. Doctors FTW!
PS I'm sure I'm bursting with Vitamin D, what with all the laying in the sun this summer.
