cry yourself to sleep

A little health story for you.

A couple days ago, suz came home with cookies. They are delicious.

Yesterday I had a cookie. I've had low platelets, I could feel it and my gums were kind of bleedy bleedy. At about 5, I ate one of suz's mom's bestest cookies ever.

And then my gum started bleeding. Not bleeding, not oozing, gushing for a little bit.

I thought nothing of it and we went to dinner and I met this biggest asshole since Johnny. Impressive if not amazing. We had burger n brew. it was still bleeding at 730.

Loafed around the house. Called doc on call at 8:55. He told me to stop eating rocks and glass. I couldn't believe that he said that. He told me he would call into the hospital orders for me to get platelets.

But, being Tuesday and all, House was on. And I, being the stubborn person I am, I didn't really want to miss it, nor go to the hospital.

So we watched House. v. good ep.

By the time it was over my gums were still bleeding. Tearfully, I had Matt drive me to the hospital at 11 pm.

I needed my platelets.

The end.

Andy got me hooked on the new Anti-Flag album. I was never really into them but that was like four years ago and now I'm so effing into them. Am in love. On top of being generally fabulous, he's got some badass musical tastes. He's always turning me onto new radtacular music. Now that's love. So go buy For Blood and Empire and you'll even get a cool stencil along with it.

Went out for a burger n brew last night and not only did I see Pam (andy's mom) there being totally stoked about a book depicting animal sex, but I met a guy who rivals Johnny for biggest assholishness/racist...ness. AND we saw Ean Vickery.

That is all as this is my second update for the day (well...first real one, eh?) and it's still only 12:30.
