Oof...my belly...

In another of life’s signs that I’m aging faster than I ever expected, I suffered my first bout with indigestion last night. This was pretty disappointing for me because all my life I have prided myself on my cast iron stomach’s ability to digest pretty much everything I put into it, from small rocks to the “Suicide”-flavored Mr. Misty at Dairy Queen*. But after taking the GF to dinner (and, granted, eating a fair amount of food even though I didn’t clean my plate) I suddenly found myself having a very uncomfortable feeing in my gut and hot flashes that lasted until well past midnight. It sucked, and now I can completely understand why people who have indigestion sometimes think they are having a heart attack.

In other news, I finally received Godfather and Godfather part II from Netflix yesterday. Part of me is excited to have a Godfather weekend, but another part of me is a little unsure of whether I really want to watch them. You see, I kind of enjoy the look on people’s faces when I tell them I haven’t seen either film – it’s similar to the look one could be given when saying “Death to America!” or “Britney Spears may be white trash, but she’s *hot* white trash!”. It’s a combination of confusion, skepticism, and “are you insane?”-ness that one rarely gets in a look from one’s fellow man anymore. I haven’t made up my mind yet, we’ll see what happens.

Because after all I’m totally being stalked by the blood center lately. They have now started calling me so often during the day that I refuse to pick up the phone. It’s like I have a stalker, but one who only wants me for my blood – a combination vampire/stalker. I still am not certain why my blood type is so in demand – I think they must use it to make some sort of secret drug to cure unicorn disease.

* A slushy-type drink that included all seven possible flavorings, which was pretty much the first mixed drink all kids in my elementary school class were exposed to.

You will not be disappointed, I promise you.

It's not like watching "THe Usual Suspects" and not being at all impressed about who Kaiser Soczy is b/c you'd figured it out 45 minutes prior.

What's your blood type?

A-negative. Like I said, a few drops of it probably purifies polluted water and cures male pattern baldness...

DON'T DO IT! Don't leave me in the dust on the Godfather thing!

I think it is rumored to cause peace in the Middle EAst, actually.

Puhlease. We've had the Godfather discussion in these blogs before, haven't we? I finally watched it, and, eh.

Spice said...

Yes, eh. Eh!!!

Don't worry J. Po, I'm still with you. I've never seen any of those either.

My hubby has not seen the Godfather flicks either. He tried to watch part 1 on TV this weekend but said the commercials were driving him crazy. Probably too many "Head-On" ads. Those are really annoying.

You need to give blood, as my good friend has unicorn disease.

grrrbear said...

Don't worry Phoenix - I came through this weekend. And I did it for the unicorns!

I still haven't watched either of the Godfather movies through. But, dead man walking...probably this weekend.
