I got my hair cut and colored at a new place today and I would show you but we let it air dry and it isn't quite dry yet so when I took a photo it looked whippoorwill-y and that is not how I want to represent my new hair to you. It's too bad I couldn't have run on more with that sentence.
But speaking of my personal appearance, remember Topamax? The lovely drug I have been taking for my migraines? You know how it made me all thin, but also kind of stupid? I went to the doctor to see about renewing my prescriptions and it went like this.
"So, how's the Topamax going, June?"
[Silence from me, because there was a shiny object out the window.]
"June? Is the Topamax working on your headaches? Any side effects?"
[After I realized the shiny object was a car bumper, I turned to look at the doctor and started picking nits out of his hair.]
"Um, June, have you noticed any trouble with your cognitive functioning with the Topamax?"
"My name is June Gardens. People call me June Gardens," I said.
Anyway, the doctor decided maybe I wasn't so bright on Topamax and maybe I shouldn't be taking it any more, and after the 18 minutes it took for that to sink in (his stethoscope was so SILVER!) I got so mad! I know I am stupid on this drug, but I have lost SO MUCH WEIGHT. It's so lovely to be thin! I don't have that shelf of water on my buttockal region when I emerge from the shower anymore! I no longer look like a marsupial! My size is in the single digits!
Oh, and my migraines have lessened, too. Whatev. The doctor said Topamax isn't the only drug in the world for eliminating migraines, and he just doesn't think this one is agreeing with my IQ. Then he made me take the doorknob out of my mouth.
My mother pointed out that I could maintain this weight by eating sensibly, to which I reply, "?" Eating sensibly. Where does she come up with the cockamamie ideas?
And I'd just like to add that all sorts of people in my real life said, "Oh, I am so glad to hear you are going off that thing. You just haven't been yourself." It's kind of like when you break up with someone and THEN you hear no one liked the guy. No one could have told me I was a numskull?
All Marvin said was, "Are you gonna get fat?" That Casanova.
I will sign off with the awarding of the Special of the Week, which goes to Grace for her comment about Henry's neutering. It's kind of a topical discussion, given the whole Jon and Kate thing swirling around. I have never even seen that show and I know that man is henpecked. So, go click on Special of the Week at right to see Grace's pithicism.
Anyway, my headachy, fat self will be back at you soon, so congratulations on that.
