This Day Last Year - Pre-Chemopalooza

So last night was the night I had my first Chemopalooza --- Pre-Chemopalooza -- the last Hooorah! Weird what a year does, eh! I remember it because it was the Saturday after New Years weekend, and someone actually didn't come because they had drank too much for New Years -- worst excuse I've ever heard since it was my last hoorah, who says YOU have to drink, stupid! Ha!

In other news, I had a really good, busy day at work on Friday. I was glued to my desk after lunch because of some big news with one of my clients... which is exactly what I missed when I was out of work! I hope it's like that every week (unfortunately it won't be) but I'm really excited for the craziness and importantness of them... I even had a CEO of a company call me and ask me if something was strategic, ha ha, I basically told him no, ha ha. But yeah, Friday was one of those days that made me love my job again, and I didn't mind how late I stayed (7pm) because I wanted to get things done and right :)

A few days ago I posted a thread on the Lymphoma board about MS to see how many people had relatives with it AND the hodge.... surprisingly, I got A LOT of responses... just a strange finding I wanted to share!

Oh and last night, I went to the movies with Pat and he really wanted to see I Am Legend, so even though I was told it would give me nightmares, I still saw it because I'm an awesome BFF, and oh my friggin' god! I wanted to leave after the first 10 minutes! I kept jumping out of my seat and hugging myself... it was about a woman finding a cure for cancer, but then it backfired and everyone in the world died except for a small handful of people, including Will Smith and his dog (the looked like a skinny version of my parents dog!) and as soon as I saw the dog in the beginning, I knew it was going to die! Booo! So yeah, I won't give it away, but basically next chick flick I want to see Pat's coming with me! I watched a lot of stupid TV before I went to bed so I wouldn't have nightmares :)

I'm going to try and make myself go to the gym soon. Oh, and I finally got period number 2, so bring on the birth control!! I can't wait for better skin, and of course, knowing when I'll be getting it every month will be very helpful as well! Yay!

I think that's all for now!

It is kinda crazy that one year, from Pre-Chemopalooza, has already past, and yet, good!! 2008 is here, so live it up! Oh, and I wanted to ask how the movie was, but apparently you wanted leave ASAP, so I'll ask Pat how he liked it- haha! :-D Well, hope you had a good weekend. TTYL

I saw I am Legend too. My son wanted to see it with me. It was loud and scary! Congratulations on getting the crimson wave back. I hope the pill works and you get lovely skin.

I missed my big 1 year cancerversary where I had my port taken out! I was suposed to celebrate on Jan. 2. Oh well, I'll do it now.

I'm so excited for you about work. Things are looking up!

Ha - I had a lucky escape then!! Wullie was desperate to go and see it but then he read it had poor reviews so we didn't go - I didn't know a thing about it except it had Will Smith in it........I'm one of those wonderful people (like you!!) who goes to films she doesn't really like just cos her BFF (and DH......aaaahhh!!) wants to see them - have you seen the SAW films?? Talk about nightmares??
Be in touch soon, kiddo - love ya........xx

I'd love to paint you a painting. Unfortunately it would probably take me until the year 2020 to get it done.

I won't make any promises I can't keep right now but if you ever need a magnet you know who to ask! That should only take a few months!

I've almost called you several times but I get so busy (due to all the children) and you are 3 hours ahead. GAH!

Okay, totally unrelated to the post, but I wanted to say that I really like Ingrid!!! And you're right, I totally knew that one song. I'm so happy we did date night! Fun, fun, fun. We need to do it again soon!
