Things I Love Thursday -- March 22nd Edition
Bonjour and hello to my fellow readers! I am writing to you from a fan air filled bedroom in lovely New jersey where I am enjoying the weather and feeling my creative muses pouring out of my fingertips. I really should have written this yesterday after my MRI but I was feeling very lethargic and blah. So...to get that mood out of my system, here is a list of things that i have made me squee with love this week. Do you write these lists every week fellow reader? If you do, let me know. i would love to read it! Let us get on with the show!
Here is what made me squee with love bursts this week.
~~Having an MRI done. Okay, you are properly saying to yourself "what you like having tests done on you?" Now of course I do not but this was interesting and scary to say the least. I have had problems with my right knee recently and my orthopedic doctor suggested i go have an MRI done to see what exactly is going on and what needs to be done for treatment. When I walked in, i had to fill out the standard paperwork and asked about if I had tattooed eyeliner. I do have a tattoo but what I learned was sometimes the ink in tattoo eyeliner heats up in the machine when you are having a head MRI which might cause discomfort. Anyway, I was brought into the room with the machine and freaked out! It is this big closed tube. It kind of looked like a bigger washing machine. I laid down on this conveyor belt and my right knee was propped up in a cuff. Then a blanket was placed over me due to all of the oxygen flowing in the machine and then i was pushed in. I was scared at first due to my head and being in a dark closed tube but my head did not go in so I calmed down. The test took 25 minutes and it was so noisy I tried to make lyrics ala Dane Cook with a car alarm. It did not work though. I have a follow up appointment on March 28th. Let us cross our fingers and toes that everything is okay!
~~Having a barista at my favorite Starbucks apologize for not remembering my usual drink; thus getting it for free!
