Celebrate Good Times. Come On!

Kool and the Gang never popped by, but my parents did manage to surprise me with some Boston Creme Pie for my birthday while I was visiting with them over the weekend.


I was feeling like crap the entire weekend. My poor parents. You know it’s bad when Mom and Dad…approaching their mid-to-late 70’s…have more energy than you. On the plus side, I got out of walking the dog for most of the weekend. On the downside, I didn’t even have enough energy to blow out a total of four candles.


Mom did a good job at trying to make me feel better. Even donning an apron to prevent getting chocolate on her clothes.

I ended up returning to Boston on Sunday afternoon. I met up with Mike and some of his friends for brunch at McKenna’s, then ran into Veselka Slut (Mark) on the street. Mike and I then headed downtown to run errands (I bought some stlyin’ new footwear, Mike dropped his Mac off to get a new keyboard).

Oh, and I’m going to make an appointment with my doctor. I definitely think I’ve developed allergies and want whatever drug (flonase? nasonex? morphine? shotgun?) that can eliminate this constant throbbing pain behind my eyes.

    Man what a sucky weekend for you! (You made R&L walk YOUR dog?) Where’s the pics of your “stlyin” footwear? 🙂 Come on, you can’t start using old age as an excuse for another few days. *snert* J. used Zyrtec for a long while but that was an antihistimine, not a decongestant… good luck…
