Twilight Tuesday

It’s no secret that I’m a bit of a hypochondriac. A bit might even be pushing it. I’m really a huge hypochondriac. Someone near me gets sick and I go into a panic that I’m going to catch it. The technical term is Pathophobia, the fear of disease. I’m self diagnosed obviously.

The real secret is that I get worried that I’ll get sick, even from hearing about people getting sick, even if I’ve been nowhere near them. Even more embarrassing is I get that feeling from hearing people say they’re sick on tv, through the internet or even phone. I mean really, tv? First, they’re acting. Second, it’s tv! I know it’s pathetic, but what can I do?

It must be so easy being a vampire. You needn’t worry about disease, or germs; only where your next meal is coming from. And if those people have an illness, it doesn’t make a difference, and you’re doing the world a favour and helping rid it of disease, one cadaver at a time.

Honestly though, I think even then, I’d still be paranoid.

Friday 5

Hello, welcome to this week’s Friday 5, Connections.

  1. Nowadays, just about everyone knows a couple who first met online. Among couples you know, who has the best story? I don’t think I know any one who’s met online.
  2. Who among your real-life acquaintances might you never have been friends with if you hadn’t gotten to know each other online first? I don’t have any real-life acquaintances that I’ve met online.
  3. Of people you know online only, who would you most like to meet in real life? I’m meeting my friend Ben next month! I’d love to meet my other friends too. Especially Gert and Julie.
  4. In the past 365 days, what’s the longest you’ve gone without connecting in any way to the Internet, including email? A few days when our computer died in June last year.
  5. Who is the least-connected person you know in real life? Melissa.

Thanks for participating, and have a wonderful weekend!

Twilight Tuesday

Yesterday was Valentines Day, a day for love, sneaking furtive glances, pda’s and all the icky, lovey stuff. I spent a good part of it however, in a hospital room. Thankfully it wasn’t me that was in the hospital. Unfortunately, it was Twi-Whore.

She had been fretting about a pain in her abdomen for almost a week now and finally she had had enough and was admitted to the hospital. We thought it was gall stones, but seems now to be something with her liver as well.

A week or so ago we had decided to spend Valentines together, because Steve was working and she had nothing to do. We were going to have a nice romantic dinner, some wine and watch squishy girl movies in our sexy lingerie, because, well, why not? Instead we postponed our date and she had to stay at the hospital, without a Dr. Cullen in sight. Poor Twi-Whore.

So being the fantastic friend that I am, I went and bought her some treats for V-Day. A teddy bear with a cupcake, some Twilight stickers, a magazine so she wouldn’t get bored, a sleep mask so she can sleep better with all the lights being flicked on, and the best of all, a Twilight card, with Edward talking. Not quite as good as the real thing, but let’s face it. If I actually had the real thing, am I really going to share? I doubt it. I also doubt she would either. We’re nice like that.

So as of right now, they’re still doing tests and trying to figure it all out. They say the abnormalities in her liver are going away and that she should be out today at some point. I just hope that she’ll be good to go in three weeks to Fooorrks!

Holy shit! Only three weeks to go! Squee!
