It’s Always Something

February 24th, 2006

So here’s a bit of fun: I have a toothache. Actually, I’ve had it since last week and I’ve been trying to muscle through it with Tylenol. You see, when you’re undergoing chemo, going to the dentist and having holes drilled in your head is a big no-no. For one, it can lead to infections going all crazy in your head. For two, it can be an issue if, say, your platelets are low, in which case you might, I dunno, bleed to death in the dentist’s chair or something.


So today I’m going to give my transplant coordinator and run through the options with her. Above all, I do NOT want my chemo schedule to change. If I have to be on morphine and antibiotics until May, I’ll do it if it means I don’t have to draw the chemo out any longer.

On my page that I use to post these little tidbits, I have the quote randomizer set up as well. Interestingly enough, my Ovid quote is showing right now: “Be patient and tough; someday this pain will be useful to you.” As much as that phrase means to me, there’s just one thought in my head right now.

Bite me, Ovid.

“For those of you who just tuned in, the Pinedale Shopping Mall has just been bombed with live turkeys. Film at eleven.” – Dr. Johnny Fever

Forgot this one I found over on IMDb:

Les Nessman: You know, if it wasn’t for my sense of humor, I would swear I was losing my mind.

There are just soooo many good quotes, I’ll let you browse by yourself.

A Long and Winding Road

October 28th, 2002

“In a situation like this, I always ask myself, what would my hero Edward R. Murrow think? And I think that Ed would think that this was censorship. Then I think about what my other hero, General George Patton, would think, and I think George would think that radio and television ought to be cleaned up, and if he were alive today, he’d take two armored cavalry divisions into Hollywood and knock all those liberal pinheads into the Pacific! So as you can see, I’m a very confused man. And when I get confused, I watch TV. Television is never confusing. It’s all so simple somehow.” – Les Nessman, WKRP in Cincinnati
