Buttkick List Update – Zorbing

Being that my health is fairly stellar these days (apart from a few little side trips to fungal ball, sinus, cyst, and dental root specialists), I have been kicking ass on The List 🙂  A recent checkmark I want to share with you is zorbing.  I know.  WTF is zorbing?  Read and learn. One of […]

HELP!

Calling all mystery solvers, P.I. wanna bes, puzzlers, riddlers, crypto chasers, scavenger hunters, and safe crackers! We are trying to locate the recipient of my son’s stem cells in order to find out if he would like to meet Rex, the donor who saved his life.  This is what we know about the mystery patient: Male […]

Blood, Sweat and Tears for Nothing

After surviving my inner lids being stabbed by 150 needles, I was beyond stoked to be rewarded with “normal” eyes, something that’s eluded me for years.   Finally!  I can apply a little Mac, Laura Mercier and Lancôme.  Ya, that didn’t last.  Intraductal meibomian gland probing was an utter quagmeyere.  A big fat f-ing fail.

Blood, Sweat and Tears for the Win

After about a million reschedulings, it finally arrived.  My intraductal meibomian gland probing appointment.  So exciting!!! Todd drove me to see Dr. R for the procedure that I knew was going to be rather barbarous, due to all the investigative groundwork I did beforehand.  You know that about me by now.  I always read up on […]

R.I.P. Gertrude

It is with much sorrow that I share the news of the loss of a dear friend.  Gertrude, my beloved yellow toe nail finally detached 12 weeks post crush fracture of my big toe. Sadly, she was the victim of a tragic accident when a heavy umbrella base fell on her at the end of July. […]

…and now I’m a Cocksacker

Thankfully for many most readers, my posts are becoming more and more spaced out.  Not spaced out as in weird (no one would consider my posts weird), but spaced out as in more time between posts.  I don’t have much to report these days regarding my brawl with health issues.  This is a good thing, don’t get […]

Toetally

Zeus and his fellow gods and goddesses on Mt. Olympus must really be Greecing the skids for me.  It seems every time I’m ordered to spend weeks off my feet, Zeus sends his special spectacle to the rescue!  Back in 1988, I went into preterm labor with Mychaela and was put on bed rest for eight weeks, […]

What a Bunch of Bull!

  My son, Rex and I reported to Pamplona’s Plaza Consistorial, joining the other couple thousand runners (encierros) before 7am.  Some were praying.  Some were rereretying Nike laces.  Some were doing nifty 1960’s-style warm up moves/stretches.  They were male.  They were young.  They were eyeing me with a “What the f are you doing here?” look.  One came […]

Roof Rappellin’ / Reptile Rasslin’

Another Bucket List day was provided by our friends, the Friedmanns, who formed a team to benefit the wonderful organization, Shatterproof, by rappelling down a 16-story Newport Center office building in Newport Beach, CA. Hell yes! Where do I sign?  My long-time friends, Kathie and Kathleen were assigned as my co-rappellettes, and I was stoked! We […]

Dudes’ Day Out in OC / Survivors’ Symposium in Chi Town

I am a very lucky girl/boy (see post Come On, Man!) for many reasons, but a biggie reason is my fantastical friends.  Two of my bestest girly friends, Jae and Kristin, thought it would be fun celebrating my gender confusion/double DNA with a Dudes’ Day Out. Who the f am I to say no to that? Off […]
