Friday Fantabulousness

I am feeling soooo much better today, you cannot imagine.  Which is good because here's the title of the document I just drafted:  Plaintiff's Reply to Defendant's Reply to Plaintiff's Response to Defendant's Motion to Dismiss.

Gack!  And technically it was Plaintiff's Reply to Defendant's Reply to Plaintiff's Response to Defendant's Motion to Take Judicial Notice and Motion to Dismiss.  But that's too damn wordy, even for a lawyer.  Even more fun was the document I wrote just before that, where we are the defendant instead of the plaintiff like 99.9% of the time.  So writing it goes like this:  "Plaintiff -- oh fuck!  Defendant asserts that Plai-- fuck!!  Defendant has met all of the statutory requirements...."

Thankfully that document was only three pages.

So anyhow, took my first dose of prednisone and antibiotics last night and a second one this morning.  Started feeling better within an hour of the first dose.  It's funny, you -- or at least I -- just don't realize how lousy you feel with this kind of thing.  Not only can I breathe through my nose again, I can think since the constant headache I've had for three weeks is nearly gone.

Of course, I'd be feeling a lot better if it wasn't that TOM.  And I'd be feeling a LOT better if I could just read a fucking calendar.  Then I wouldn't have Mother Nature's lovely little red footprints all over my unmentionables because I'm out of feminine hygiene products at the office.

Dramatic re-enactment

Just kidding -- partly -- on that last one.  But it's a great visual, isn't it?  Muwahahahahaha!!  Seriously though, I would feel a lot better without cramps.  Should make tomorrow's 16-miler just LOADS of fun.  I'm packing the Advil now.

Side note:  I was laughing because I could search the website for "red footprints" and get this.  So then I searched for "craziest web searches ever" which came up with, among other things, the craziest commercials ever.  Which talked about a Cuban gynecologist and now I'm not so sure I want to play anymore.  But which does remind me that I'm due for my annual.

Well now.  Hopefully I have thoroughly squicked you out or made you spit coffee all over your monitor.  My work here, she is done.

Happy weekend!

  1. I am way too amused by "mother nature's little red footprints". So wrong, yet so hilarious! Legal documents sound so exciting. My husband used to come home all excited about some summary judgement he wrote while I just stared into space in boredom. I kind of miss it now that he's unemployed, though.

  2. oh my...cuban gyno? yep, i'm due too...thanks for the reminder! ;) glad you are feeling better.

  3. You are too funny!
    And way smart. I mean I had to read over those document titles a few times to grasp what you were working on!

    So at Warrior Dash I am 12 feet in the air trying to get from one side of the wall to the other. I started making progress and two horrified girls looked up at me. My response to their worry? "I'd rather be at the gynecologist right now!" .... I take it back. It was awesome once I got my 2nd leg over, but still.
