while i am waiting for my dumbass computer...

to finish whatever it is that it is doing, i thought i would talk your ear off for a bit. I seriously hate this computer. and i dont hate anything or anyone( not that there isn't anyone who deserves to be hated by me, it just isn't my style!) I wonder if anyone finds it weird how passionately I feel about "things". If it were possible, i would totally make out with my camera & my iphone. Maybe even at the same time if I was feeling extra frisky! I would also choke my computer until it turned blue, let it go & then do it again just for shits & giggles. You know how they say when children torture animals it can be a sign that they will grow to become serial killers? I wonder if this means that I will grow into one of those crazy old ladys who talks to inanimate objects? Whatever, i'm weird & i'm fine with that!

Speaking of crazy old lady's, last night when I was at Super Walmart (don't laugh it's awesome!) I had a very serious 10 minute conversation with the 60-something year old check out lady about Twilight & Rob Pattinson. I am admittedly obsessed with the Twilight series. I never saw the appeal of Rob Pattinson before reading the books. Then I got it. And then it grew much worse when I heard him sing. Go ahead, click the link & then try to tell me that isn't one of the sexiest voices you have ever heard. It's like a mix between Van Morrison & John Mayer(douchebag). And, he is amazing on the piano & the guitar. I could continue but you get the point. Now, I am growing quite found of Taylor Lautner. He's only 17 & i feel like a dirty old woman so I won't say anymore about that! I will be one of those nerds standing in line at midnight when the new movie opens. I will try my hardest not to paint my face white & wear black contacts though, I wouldn't want to embarrass whoever goes with me! The movie isn't even that good but a lot of it was filmed in parts of Oregon that I went to with Tavia. And anytime i see photos of those places I start to feel all warm & fuzzy inside!

Now on to something else that has been on my mind alot lately. My last cancer screening came back as only "midly abnormal" so there was no need for another surgery and I didn't have to come back for 6 whole months! While that is great news, it freaks me out to think about waiting 6 months to get checked again. If it was up to me, I would be there once a week just to make sure everything was ok. One of my scars has started to become raised & itchy. It's super ugly but I kind of like to show it off. I like when people ask me what happened so I can hopefully scare them in to wearing sunblock & stop baking their asses in the sun. I get so pissed when I see people do that. And I was the WORST when I was younger. I slathered on the baby oil and layed out all day long all summer. And i was a regular at the tanning salon. My best friend used to lecture me about wearing sunscreen (in the nicest possible way of course). I eventually listened because she has the most beautiful skin of anyone I have ever seen and she NEVER tans. (i'm sure those of you who know Tavia would agree with me on that one). It didn't matter though. I was diagnosed with Melanoma & just a year before I had no signs of it. I was lucky we found it early. It wasn't quite deep enough to need Chemo or Radiation but it wasn't far off. Just all the more reason I would like to try to convince my doctor to move in with me & stare at me naked all day. Plus, she's super funny & I like funny!

Sunscreen is our friend. I do always try to tell people that they can still get tan and wear protection. Liam has skin like me and he looks like a little brown bean from being in the pool so much even though he is slathered up every time he swims. He has never had a sunburn and I hope he never will. I'm glad that your screening went well. I understand how you'll be nervous between now and your next one though. It'll be fine!!

Don't know much about Twilight. Haven't read the books or seen the movies. Kyle saw the first one and thought it was predictable and boring. I just bought the time travelers wife and I'm going to start reading that bc I've heard it's good.

I had no idea about the skin cancer, geez that is totally shitty. We are to young for that stuff, Christa was diagnosed with it too about 3 years ago.
I spend my life under the umbrella, but it is a nice reminder.
Twilight rocks. Although, I kinda hate on Kristen Stewart...not reallly how I pictured Bella.

Mildly abnormal, just like the rest of you!

This was a great post, I miss you tons and "hearing" you go on and on is nice!

Also, I'm obsessed with the Sookie Stackhouse books right now. If you haven't read them, you should. They are silly and easy to get through.
