REALLY?! A Rant......

Good gawd! Some people are just SO RUDE!!! And I just have to rant cause I just couldn't believe this rudeness!!  

Ok, so I heard that one of my very favorite restaurants, Chipotle, started offerin brown rice as a choice.  They've always only offered white rice.  So I get zero rice & order the salad bowl.  But this more healthful brown rice option made me SO very happy! And we were kinda turkey'd out from Thanksgiving, so O suggested we grab a Chipotle & get out & about for a bit.  I was all over that like white (or brown) on rice! ( I mean, I probably haven't had rice in my Chipotle bowl in years.  So off we went.

Here's the thing about Chipotle's assembly line style...usually very busy & seating is limited.  Music is loud & unique.  Just a great fun place to eat some really great food!  But not exactly a place you'd lounge around in for AGES after you've finished eating.  And ESPECIALLY not with an infant in tow....And VERY ESPECIALLY when you can see there's a line out the door & clearly most of these people will have NO PLACE TO SIT.  But that's what we saw when we got there....

So we walk in...line isn't terrible...yet...All the good tables are taken, only a couple of high tops available.  I hate a high top.  Anyway, there's this family (I guess) who are well finished with their food. So we figure (hope) they'll be gone by the time we need someplace to sit.  They were takin up 2 four top tables, but at 1 of those was just the Mom (I guess) with the infant. Other table had young adult lookin people all in their Sunday finest...suit & tie, dresses, head wear...clearly they had been to church earlier...I guessed, since it was Sunday afternoon...

So I'm thinkin....surely they aren't just hangin out....And luckily I found a regular two top table for us, but everything else was full.  And everybody in line was like watchin these people just sittin there, takin mobile phone pictures of each other, woman cooin with the of the young adults puts their head down on the table like she was gonna take a frickin nap or somethin....And O & I are watchin & just can't believe it.  The line is almost out the door at this point, most tables are full...all the good seats are taken. (Thanks to these people!) And I'm all like REALLY?!! How fuckin RUDE can you be??  Can't they see that like EVERYBODY is watchin them? See, this place is designed for you to go through the line, sit down & eat, & leave...which is what MOST people do. Cause there's no comfy booths, no soft dinner music, no wait's not that kind of place.  Now, if it's totally dead in there....fine.  But crazy ass busy, tons of people in line, very limited seating??  And you & your gussied up group are gonna just sit there.  REALLY?? 

We finished our food & they still showed no signs of gettin it together to leave or anything.  So as we're gatherin up stuff to take to the trash, I'm all like "Yeah, let's GO since we're FINISHED & FREE UP this table so OTHER PEOPLE can SIT DOWN & eat!!" O was crackin up...I was just like "GAWD!!"

We never saw them leave....we even sat in the car several minutes while I reapplied my lip gloss....I really expected to see them leave but they didn't.  I dunno what most of the people in the line did...I guess they had to wait for other (normal) people to finish eating & leave. 

Am I the one with the problem?  Maybe you just had to be there....but I could never do that.  I've never seen that before...I eat here pretty frequently with my friend...& we don't do that.

*end rant*

So Excuse Me Forgetting.....

Yeah, some stuff I forgot to mention...

First: I don't work at the insurance office anymore.  I haven't since the 1st of October.  Well, actually mid September when I took some time off to deal with that flurry of medical & to help O with some big stuff in our video biz.  This time last year I was studyin to pass the state exam to get my license.  And now I'm back to full time with our video company.  And it's fine.  Nobody's mad at anybody.  The insurance biz around there is just too slow at the moment to justify my "experimental" position, so s'all good.  We're all still buds.  And I still pop by from time to time for "Mexican Food Wednesday" or "Asian Food Friday".  =)

Also, that latest member of the insurance office to have to join the "cancer club"....he's gonna be good.  Had a very small colon cancer.  Had it removed in surgery.  Does not require any further treatment.

And my appointment I just had with my oncologist, Dr W.  Was a bit stressful, but turned out good.  It was another one of those times where he was runnin behind & I was waitin in the exam room for like, by the time he came in I was totally about to freak out.  But it all looked fine.  Get the chest X-ray before I see him again in February.

And finally...chemo brain.  It's still an issue.  Not terrible, but I've become terribly forgetful.  Like, I'm askin people to tell me stuff they've already told me. Forgettin to do stuff I say I'm gonna do....(especially hate that one, cause I'm known to do what I say I'll do.) So, yeah...I'm learning that I need to write down things that are important.  Pretty much have started to write everything down. 

Ok, I guess that pretty much catches up anything left hangin out there.

Superstition Ain't The Way.......

Right.  So the 3 month appointment with my oncologist, Dr W is tomorrow.  And I'm (as usual) nervous.  But not as much as in the past.  I've been just "havin a feelin" that I've totally beat this bs.  That it's all gonna be good.  And at the same time, I'm all weirded out about goin into this appointment all confident & not a bundle of nerves like I usually am.  I think it's because, in my mind, goin in there anything less than bein all nervous means I'll probably get bad news.  So, if I go in there all typically nervous, I should hear the same thing I always hear. Right?  Cause I usually go in there all nervous, shakin in my shoes. And he always says everything looks good/great/beautiful. So I guess it's a bit of "expect the worst & hope for the best". Superstitious much?  Right. So how much of a nut job am I? Bein all weirded out about not bein all weirded out about this appointment.  

Or I'm just a headcase. 

Wish me luck!

Got Some 'Splainin To Do...

Ok, it appears I need to explain something about this blog. I was made aware of this fact when someone checked out my last post.  So here goes:  When you are readin my blog, & you see words that are a different color, (teal, I think) mouse over that & you'll see that it's a link.  And maybe the different colors don't show up on mobile devices...I dunno.  But I should not have just assumed (you know what they say about when we ASS U ME) that it was obvious that there are links inside some of the posts that don't look like a typical link. 

Movin on....I'm FINALLY wearin my hair NOT in a ponytail.  I went to see my stylist & got a bit of a blend & trim.  Still tryin to get the last of the chemo fuzz off...still a tiny bit left in the back, but it's not noticeable when I flat iron it.

So, YAY! It's startin to look like real hair.

And I'm slightly unnerved that my oncologist, Dr W, has rescheduled my appointment from this coming Thursday to the following Monday.  He's apparently out of the office all next week. *Shakes fist at Dr W* And, of course, being the super weirdo paranoid freak that I am....of course I'm worried that it "means something". *Can see my friend's eyeballs rollin right now*

And y'all don't forget to turn your clocks back this weekend! =)
