Rachel--24

Omg...i Might Be On To Something

Recommended Posts

Nikki -- good googly moogly -- don't take that from your kids' pediatrician's office . . . call every day and ask if there have been any cancellations. In fact, if you call first thing in the morning, and then right before noon, after two days, you'll be in. They don't want you calling and asking all the time!! They have openings that they keep "free" so that the doctors can catch up, or if there is an emergency. They'll fill them, though, if someone bugs them enough . . . because they don't want you to call them again (my daughter worked as a clerk for a pediatrician's office) .. . . . be a thorn in their butt -- not their side -- and you will get in VERY soon!!!!!

My son and I were discussing Rachelville . . . we decided that I can't be a STAND UP comic, because, well, I'm in a wheelchair . . . so I'm a SIT DOWN comic!!!!! Also, when I told him that I was the town storyteller, he said, "oh you mean a Bard?" That is what they used to be called . . . people who would wander the town, as a minstrel and storyteller . . . so maybe that should be changed as well.

Also . . . my son is a hunky 23 year-old . . . and plays the BEST jazz saxophone I've heard . . . but it's the old stuff . . . Duke Ellington, Glen Miller, Coltrane, etc. . . . . . He could be an asset to Rachelville. He's also very capable, and bust-a-gut funny . . . .

Ok, Since no one volunteered to go back into the lions, and tigers, and bears....OH MY!

I did. :P

Rachelville Vocabulary Update:

1. Relevation

2. Spinach/Spinached/Spinaching

3. Good Googly Moogly

4. Scientificness

5. Wordage

6. Pulled a Dave/"Dave"

These are know safely on my computer along with the town list and application, so they won't get lost. Unless my computer dies....no back up yet....need to get more C.D.-RW's. :P

p.s. Carla - gorgeous photo and nice to see you !

Thank you ... Christmas Eve last year standing in front of my stove cooking dinner!! :P It was 2 weeks after going gluten-free.

It's good to be here!!

Gosh, took the kids to the pool and came back to a book to read! Skimmed over it ... I'm leaving here again in a little bit and won't be able to check in till tomorrow ... gosh, it'll be another 30 pages by then! :D

For music, I've always pretty much listened to anything anyone else wants to hear. I like about anything except twangy country (some of the newer stuff is good) or rap. My husband just bought us tickets to see the Commodores. That should be fun.

Picard - - an attorney who is a thoughtful boss - - -a rarity, I will tell you - worked in two law firms myself throughout college (one was my dad's, about 60 attorneys at that time - - too much exposure to lawyers in my past :blink: ) but they do rely heavily on a good secty, that's for sure....

having a hard time picturing our Mother Hen listening to Iron Maiden.... :lol::lol:

I'll tell you what, my music tastes would get ME laughed out of town, except by perhaps cissie - -

Bluegrass, American roots music (I went from Celtic to that), OLD country (Cash especially, Willie Nelson and Emmylou), and then NIck Drake (British and no longer living), crazy old English Beat and ska, from college- - there's normal stuff too (Seal - my deep love - U2, Beatles, Peter Gabriel) and some Christian music......but everybody but my bro hates my old crazy stuff with fiddles and Appalachian crooners - - - -

quote

Bluegrass, Am. roots, Cash and wife, Beatles, Christian music + fiddles and crooner..you are getting me perked up now. Like those SOUNDS!! Now we are into music. Just sing in church, sometimes alto..2nd soprano or 1st..Love my moozak.

I was surprised that "porcelain god" thing got left out as long as it did!! Let the party go on!! Gotta go. Luv ya all,

evie ;)

He's a pretty good guy . . . he just took me to my physical therapy appointment -- took off work to do it. Then, took me to the bookstore . . . . He has a HUGE collection of vinyl records . . . LOVES the classics . . . big Sinatra fan, but because I endured YEARS of squeaky saxophone practice, everyone can now benefit from the EXCELLENT baritone sax that he plays (also plays alto & tenor -- has an alto and a bari) . . . He can also play acoustic guitar, electric guitar, electric bass, banjo, clarinet, drums . . . can't think of what else, but I know that those are the instruments he has . . . (can you tell why I'm poor?????) Actually, I forgot -- the drums are Ashley's -- she plays drums, marimba, xylophone, piano . . . and I'm going to try to send via e-mail to you guys who want it the song that was played before their wedding . . . (she sings opera).

Okay, I've bragged enough . . . .

Premature posting....

Now...if it were me who could eat these muffins...well you can be damn sure I'd be walking around looking like Donna with crumbs all over my mouth and little puffs of muffin flying out everytime someone speaks to me. :D

:lol: new word....crumage! :lol:

I still havent heard anything back about my ultrasound. They said my doc would call in a day or two..its almost been two weeks now. <_<

Do you think they have seen the alien baby and are not sure what to do about it. I remember it felt as if he was quite disturbed that day after I poured about a gallon of water into my gut. :huh:

I'm getting a little worried...I shall call them today.

Call. Dr. R said he would call in a week and it was 3 weeks, but not until AFTER I called the nurse, lol. Talk about being worried...I had myself convinced I had pancreatic cancer by that point. I think more likely (as was in my case) they may be having the results looked at by more than one person.

Donna, remember how in R-Ville everything is happy and perfect?? We dont really kill things here...especially in such a violent manner. :o

I'm thinking we may actually need an intervention clinic in the town....it will be a busy place I'm sure. :rolleyes:

Oh yes, now I remember. :lol:

Yes, do we have a love match?? We could have a Rachelville wedding and they could live happily ever after in Jazz music-loving matrimony.

:lol: Donna at your drive by post :lol:

Picard- I want you to be my boss :)

Carla- love your new picture!

Glad Andrea got all straightened out on the Queen song. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Queen, listened to it all the time growing up, Another One Bites The Dust......

Chelse- I also am a HUGE fan of the classic rock genre, I see you on your Free Bird.

Hi evie!!! How are you feeling?? I hope better.

Susie- I heard that giving blood takes a lot out of you energy wise, don't really have first hand experience, but given how you have been feeling, with the D and all, it makes me worry. You also kill me with all of your posts, so hysterical!!

I'm trying to remember some groups even back in college. I can't. I know one song that I hate being stuck in my head is "Blasphemous Rumors" but I couldn't tell you the group anymore.

That would be Depeche Mode

Ok Susan, Your Mother Hen doesn't listen to that stuff anymore. When I met my hubby he was a beatles fan. We've both moved to simple, easy listening type music. I also liked Dan Folgeberg "Run for the Roses". I love horses!

Grrrr......telemarketers. I'll send this. Hard to listen and type something totally different.

Good Googly Moogly ---

Anyone every have Hydrogen breath tests for baterial overgrowth and/or lactose intolerance?

These do not sound like fun! I think I am going to be spinached and pulling a Dave all at once. The testing service just warned me I may be visiting the porcelain god after both tests. :(:blink::o

:o No, that doesn't sound fun...I haven't had either test...really don't need more reasons to visit the porcelain god. :o

Back to reading....

That was another song I used to like.

Depeche Mode....Thank you. They were quite popular among the group in college (for the time I was there...dropped out my Junior year).

GGGGGRRRRRR. It must be telemarketer day. :angry:

Ah, music. Love it. Love classic rosk. When I was young (here's showing some age folks), my favorite group was Led Zeppelin. Now, I don't have time to listen to much except the music for choir and the small group. ;)

Okay, it's 2:20 and still no chocolate, although I was really hungry and all I had to eat was some plums from our trees. Anyway, I think I'm safe on the chocolate for today since I leave here in 10 minutes and have no chocolate at home. Thank goodness for laziness...otherwise a trip to the store might tempt me, but alas, I am lazy so no stops. :rolleyes:

Susan - put down that nugget and back away! :lol:

Nope, you won't catch me laughing at you. Love that Bluegrass, Celtic, and OLD Country.

BTW, my daughter, the Elvis fan, is taking off for Memphis on Thursday, for all the goings-on at Graceland. It's an annual pilgrimage.

Funny you should mention telemarketers, Andrea. We have not been able to receive incoming calls on our phone for about 2 weeks. They sent a man out last week, couldn't figure it out :blink: . New man comes today, figures out that the problem is a broken wire, underground somewhere between the entrance of the neighborhood and my house. As of 3 pm today, have phone service back. Have also gotten 2 telemarketer calls since! :D They came out of the woodwork as soon as the line opened up! :lol:

I always loved 70's AM radio music growing up. Motown, Bee Gees, Neil Diamond--all that stuff. I still like that music today--the XM Radio has a 70's station that I listen to a lot. My sons are into 70's rock--Steely Dan, Led Zeppelin--I remember when it was all on the radio as new music! My older son also got me into a little Hip Hop.

I also love Country Music--old and new. That's what I tend to listen to in the car the most--good to sing to :D

I also really like showtunes :ph34r:

Susan,

Past male friend who drinks could be trouble if you can't disassociate the past happenings (ie. going out drinking) with now. If it will encourage you to old habits....then no, no, no.

If you are ready to date, which I thought you said you weren't, and it won't pose a problem of past associations then it's a possibility.
