the k mysteries.

Lying in bed after work, going over the events of our day.

k:  Do you eat cereal in the morning?
r:  I did this morning.
k:  Oh...I noticed the milk had expired, so I used water instead.  It didn't taste funny?
r:  No...but now that you mention it my tummy has been feeling weird all day...
     So, let me get this noticed the milk had expired & placed it back into the refrigerator instead of...throwing it away.
k:  yes.

Lesson learned:  Don't trust, always check the expiration date.

assuming that because i don't speak tagalog, that i automatically don't understand it, too, is foolishness.  so, talking about me in front of me, because you think i don't understand, is well... pangit.  

so, i don't speak the language?  it doesn't make me less of a filipino.

So, I'm not dying.

Which for the past week I've been feeling like I was.

Okay, I admit I wasn't "dying," maybe more like getting punched in the stomach & stabbed in the lower back at the same time constantly, or maybe it was like doing the ab wheel continuously....either way it sucked, but today I finally feel like I'm on the up & up. Thankfully, all the CAT scans & the lab draws, the palpating, the percussing & the many, many urine samples I've given are negative...turns out I'm just stressed.  So, stress relieving activities need to be in my immediate future.  Official prescription from my Internist.  

First things first on this road to a more stressless me...get the apartment so fresh & so clean. Nothing beats unwinding with a Mr. Clean Eraser & my Scunci Steamer.  Next an appointment with quite possibly the best scalp massager on this side of the valley, Liz works wonders.  Then for the weekend my husband & I are leaving the cell phones & the to do lists at home & heading to the beach for long days of picnicking, biking, feeling the sand between our toes, & some reading of books, mine are recommend by Kate, who never seems to steer me wrong when it comes to a good read.

Things are already looking up.

After watching 'Into the Wild.'

Ken said he wanted to try growing his beard out....AGAIN.
It was a bad idea then.
& it's a bad idea now.
Seriously, I think he's handsome grizzly or clean.
I just have a preference.

Separated at birth.

MC Search & My husband.

Down for the count.

It started Tuesday & I tried to fix it myself.
Which put me in the ER on Thursday.
And now it's Saturday & here I am...I can barely walk & I'm poppin' pills like it's candy.

I hate being the patient & according to my husband I'm really bad at it, maybe it's true.

Regardless, kidney infections, aren't fun.

My husband recently told me he discovered hip hop when he was in kindergarten.  That he was taping N.W.A. & Public Enemy off of the radio when he was 8.  Certifying him a true hip hop head.

In kindergarten I had just discovered that a half elephant & half kangaroo was called Eleroo. When I was eight I played my Jem tape in my Teddy Ruxpin.  Certifying me a CHILD.

I admit before we met I was as hip hop as Nelly & Petty Pablo.  Ken introduced me to this whole new world, making me realize before him I was certifiably wack.

So, with that said...
It's a summer of amazing concerts, kicked it off with the Heart of the City tour & tomorrow Erykah & The Roots @ the Greek Theatre.  I'm so excited to see what's next...

"If they don't serve sweet tea, I just as soon not eat."

for only a week. it was good to be home.
everything we hated, ended up being what we missed the most.
lucky for us not much has changed.
and it hurt to say goodbye.

it went by way too quick & now not only am i homesick for the amazing faces we had to say goodbye to, but for everything that makes louisiana home.
