in which i talk about my butt, etc

i was going to do a million things last night and ended up doing basically nothing instead.

i hung out at the doctor’s office for almost two hours (weee! my favourite place in the world!) the one doctor i normally get is so awesome. i talk to him like he’s sixteen and his facial expressions are hilarious. at this point? i’m a regular. we hungout in the main office and he gave me copies of my tox screens to show that yes, i’m totally dying… and THIS is why,etc. he sent me off with a new prescription and told me to head back in ten days if i didn’t feel better. GREAT! i have a date with my doctor. my usual pharmacist was all, aw dude? again? bummer. she gave me a sympathetic look and gave me the low-down on the new meds. the new pills warn me to “avoid polonged exposure to the sun, or sunlamps”, and to “avoid calcium, iron, or multivitamins 6 hours before and 2 hours after this medication”

PERFECT! so i can’t leave my house, or eat… uh… anything healthy?

she also emphasized on the NO DAIRY thing 2 hours before and 2 hours after taking the pill. uh, lady? i can basically yell at the toilet from my mouth, OR my ass ANYWHERE at this point. my body is dead- you think i care about these things? as long as i look cute when i’m crying on the toilet, that’s really all i care.

no but actually i can’t even pee in public without squirming. people can HEAR THE LIQUIDS coming out of my VAGINA.


my immune system was compromised a few years ago and it seems that since then? my body just can’t function. i catch the smallest virus and it turns into a full-blown infection within hours. and then it takes multiple visits to the doctors, different prescribed medication, and tons of money flushed down the drain trying to find medication my body can process. i get something new every other week! how do these things happen?! and why can’t my body cut me a break?

anyway, by the time i was finished with the doctor’s office and pharmacy, it was almost 8pm… (i get off work at 5). i headed home and dan came over for TV night. i baked us some tuna casserole and apple turnovers and we watched intervention, the food network, and most of let’s go to prison (with will arnett)- if you haven’t seen this yet, DO IT. i was crying from laughter. i put curlers in, painted my nails, and went to bed around 11. dan stayed up most of the night drinking beer, eating chips, and scream-laughing at scarface. when i woke up this morning i noticed that he’d shut the curtains in the living room, turned off the tv in my bedroom, and passed out in all his clothes on top of the blanket next to me.

a drunk dan is a good dan.

anyway, it was a nice relaxing night and definitely the night in i needed with a good friend. dan doesn’t open up much- and when he does he usually finds a way to say things to make everyone uncomfortable (he’s funny like that), but he’s been really good lately. i was scooping some casserole into his bowl and he was looking down and said, “you know, i’m really glad i never met your ex-boyfriend”. that’s it. took his bowl and walked to the living room. i love that kid.

tuna casserole & apple turnovers!

i adapted the recipe from here

this is my version of it:

tuna noodle casserole

for the mushroom sauce:
1tbs butter
3 tbs flour
1 cup mushroom broth (i used vegetable)
1/2 cup milk (i used soy)
1 can mushrooms (i used roughly one pack, chopped, about 1 cup)

250 grams dry noodles
3tbs vegetable oil
1 onion (i used half)
1tbs flour
2 cups milk (i used soy)
1 can tuna, drained
1/2 cup frozen peas
(i also added about 1/2 cup frozen chopped yellow beans)
1 cup shredded cheese (i used old orange cheddar)
1/2 cup bread crumbs (i made my own)
2 tbs olive oil

1. make the sauce- i added everything in the order i wrote them down
2. in a separate large pot, heat 3tbs vegetable oil and chopped onions (medium heat)
3. pour original sauce into pot of onions
4. add flour, milk, salt, pepper, tuna, peas, beans, cheese (wait a few minutes, then turn off heat)
5. add olive oil to breadcrumbs
6. cook noodles al dente; drain & add to pot of sauce; mix well
7. pour sauce/noodle mixture into greased casserole dish
8. (i added more cheese on top at this point)
9. spread bread crumbs evenly over the top
10. bake at 350 for roughly 35 minutes
11. take out and let cool ten minutes


also, i wanted to wish a very happy birthday to jess!

head on over to her blog to give some birthday lovin’ to this hot mama.

it runs in the family… get it? runs?

the brother: It’ll be a good night. I plan on trying all 100 types of beer lol. Actually, that may cause death.

me: hahaha‚Ķ I always say that, but then I go through the beer bible* and the waitress shows up and I get nervous so I just yell out the first thing that comes to mind which is usually “STRONGBOW” and then it’s awkward. for everybody.

the brother: seriously though… Strongbow? Nasty. Beer urine.

me: no it’s basically apple juice that gets you drunk. it’s like being a baby, but with better benefits.

the brother: hahaha, they should put that as their slogan.

me: yeah that, or “bring a diaper!”. but seriously, I think I have IBS.

the brother: Merry Christmas!!!

me: you would!

the brother: no, I did

me: crap.

the brother: literally.

* this is a real thing! the pub next to my house has a BEER BIBLE!
