1. the art of behaving so exceptionally as to be mind blowing
antonym: douche baggery
I have been surrounded by supreme badassery as of late and I want to share my good fortune with my dear readers 🙂
At last Saturday’s USC football game, the former Trojan volleyball players were recognized on the field. Our daughter, Mychaela, and adorable friend, Maya, both USC women’s volleyball alums, held up Todd’s “got marrow?” shirt to publicize the need for bone marrow donors. Todd held it up during the men’s vball recognition, but I f-ed up and didn’t get a pic…

I recently came across a full-on, completely badass video that friends Gregg, Chip and Dave, along with their CBRE team sent to me on the exact day of my transplant… I remember watching it in my hospital bed, and crying because it was SO touching, but my f-ed up chemo brain was not able to remember where I had stored it, until now! Sharing it is way overdue, but it is so badass, I think it’s appropriate for this post 🙂
PAB – Prednisone’s A Bitch, and dropping that roid has done wonders for offing some nasty side effects, like my unsightly facial hair.
When I check out the stats of this blog, I see all the spam comments that have been assassinated by my badass software. I usually don’t read them because I have trouble with Japanese and Russian, and I’m not in the market for a penis enlarger, but for some reason, I was drawn to this particular comment:
“Ive study not one article in your blog. You are a large lad.” – Jesse. Kinda badass, right? I mean, Jesse just gets right to the point. No beating around the bush with sweet talk. He goes balls to the wall and lays it on the line. Gotta respect his style. Direct. He not study one article in my blog and I’m a large lad. WTFEDINTK? – What The F Else Do I Need To Know?
Last night, Todd and I went to an awesome event to support UCI Women’s Volleyball and coach Paula Weishoff, who is a friend of ours. Even though I look like a toddler in this snap, it is completely and totally badass, because I’m surrounded by badassery. On the left is Paula Weishoff, #1 women’s volleyball player in the world not so long ago. On the right is Lindsay Davenport, also our friend, and #1 women’s tennis player in the world not so long ago. And of course everyone recognizes Todd, reigning #1 caretaker in the world!
Not all side effects suck. Here is one of my new badass side effects (I just woke up one morning, and there it was – hot pink bangs!):
Not only are my bangs badass, Dr. F once again displayed his badassery during this conversation:
Me – “Dr. F, I have a new side effect, and I have no idea what has caused it!” (pointing in a somewhat panic stricken manner to my forehead)
Dr. F – “It must be due to the fact that the marrow we transplanted into you came from a really cool person.”
Pretty badass if you ask me. (or Leason 4)
