I'm sick. But I should be better in a week or so. It's nothing life-threatening or anything, but not very pleasant to have to deal with at all. I went to the doctor this morning (my doctor was dressed like one of the sex bots from Austin Powers and the receptionist was dressed like Charlie Brown) and ended up working from home today. I wasn't able to do much over the weekend. I didn't get to do Halloween, even though I wanted to so bad. Our neighbors had a Halloween Luau on their front lawn, which Billy crashed for a bit. He brought me a plate of kabobs, but the meat didn't taste right at all. I'm bummed. We have plans to go out of town to my friend's 30th birthday party for the "Grown and Sexy" this weekend too. I hope things progress significantly over the next few days, because I really want to enjoy that party.
I'm not use to writing such a "downer" blog entry, but I couldn't help it today. That's where I am right now. So I'll leave on some happy notes.
- I found a great website that has cool, young, stylish clothes in my size and inseam length...significantly increasing my prospects for great trousers.
- Sephora highlighted very cool looks including 3 for brown-skinned Black girls. As if I need any more makeup.
- Billy has done a great job taking care of me over the past few days. He's done a great job looking after me, being my nurse, making sure I'm comfortable, teasing me, making fun of me, making me laugh.
- Since I was working from home today, I got to see Oprah. Actually, I heard Oprah 'cause I was working in the other room. It looks like she has this cool "homework" thing now. At the end of the show, she asked the viewers to go home and ask yourself the questions, Who am I? and What is my purpose? and to answer the question without saying what you do for a living.
