Note 2 Self:
Always check the back of your pants after using the bathroom. My mom, sister, and I were sitting in church one Sunday morning when a teenage boy got up to use the bathroom. When he came back, he had a very long piece of toilet paper hanging out the top of his pants. In order for him to get to his seat he had to walk down the row past all his peers. Once he sat down the kid next to him leaned back as if to confirm that his eyes did not deceive him, and that he did in fact have a stream of toilet paper following him. Once confirmed, he leaned over to whisper to his friend to tell him what was hanging from his britches. The poor kid reached behind him to grab whatever he could as quickly as possible. When he pulled a wad of toilet paper from his pants, he balled it up and shoved it in his pocket. This is when our laughter began. He then reached back again to tuck the remaining toilet paper right back into the back of his pants where it came from. For this, I was grateful. We all knew where that piece was stuck and would rather he deal with that in private. We were sitting a couple of rows behind him, but we could see the red glow from his cheeks (face cheeks) as he sat there knowing everyone behind him saw what had just happened. We felt so bad for him, but we couldn’t control our laughter at this point. All 3 of us were laughing uncontrollably. When we’d finally compose ourselves, one of us would start-up again which would cause a snowball effect. Needless to say, I didn’t hear one word the pastor said that morning…and neither did anyone around us. Oops!
What Chaps my Cheeks:
It chaps my cheeks when you go to the doctor because you feel like crap and then they tell you nothing is wrong with you and send you home with a big fat bill and nothing to help your symptoms. For the past few weeks I’ve been having some serious pains in the right side of my stomach which goes around to the right side of my back. The pains are really sharp and my stomach has appeared slightly swollen on that side. It feels as though something is jabbing me in the side all day long and I can’t get comfortable. I thought maybe it was something serious like appendicitis, kidney stones, a cyst, or a UTI. I figured I better get it checked out. I went to the doctor; they checked for a UTI and gave me an ultrasound to see if I had a cyst. They didn’t find anything and sent me home. Later that night I couldn’t take the pain anymore and I had my husband take me to the ER. The doctor there was so rude. He was questioning me as if I was a criminal on trial. He basically made me feel like I was making up my symptoms. Sorry buddy, I have better things to do on a Friday night than sit in the ER and “pretend” to be in pain. They gave me a CT Scan to see if I had appendicitis or a kidney stone. Again…they didn’t find anything. So I got sent home for the 2nd time in one day with no help for my symptoms and a big fat doctor bill. Now I get to continue to be in pain for an unknown amount of time. I know they can’t help it if they can’t find anything wrong…but I don’t appreciate their rudeness or lack of sympathy for my pain.

Is anyone out there a Big Brother fam? I’ve been anticipating this season’s premier since last season ended and I can’t seem to find anyone to discuss it with. This year they have 8 new players and then they threw in a twist by inviting 3 previous couples back.
Jeff and Jordan: America loves them (or at least I do) so I’m glad they are back. Jeff lovingly makes fun of his ditsy girlfriend for all her stupid questions which makes you love them all the more.
Brendon and Rachel: They are now engaged. These two couldn’t make me more sick than they already do. Rachel’s annoying horse laugh is enough to make me jump off a bridge. And her pushover, nerdy, sissy fiance rides her coat tails all the way through the game. Brendon, do us all a favor…put your pants on and tell your girl she’s annoying, selfish and rude. I don’t think I can take a whole other season of her crazy antics!
Evil Dick and his daughter Daniele: Evil Dick is just plain crazy. I feel bad for Daniele having to admit to American that this is her dad. I’m not surprised that outside of the house they have no relationship at all.
As for the new people in the house. I feel there is a good, well-rounded cast this year. People from all different walks of life which should keep me at the edge of my seat every Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday night.
