much ado about nothing

So yesterday was the day to be mashed and prodded by a med tech who was generally pleasant and explained everything really well. It wasn't as bad or as painful as I thought it would be. I find that things like that usually are not as traumatic as people make them out to be. The process was uncomfortable, but not terribly painful. The most painful part was sitting in the waiting room with a really bad soap opera on. At one point the plot, from what I gather, is that some girl, Theresa, is having a baby that she then is supposed to give to some other girl, Gwen, and the father of the baby...um, Ethan.

So Ethan goes upstairs with Fox, who is here to pick up Whitney, who is apparently pregnant with her brother's child. While this happens, Gwen goes into some daydream fantasy where she is what looks to be a saloon hall girl, in tight strapless corset and lacy skirt, with black tights and high button boots. It gets worse from there, ending in her shooting the woman who is stealing her baby. Then back to the real world. I didn't want to watch but it was so funny, so bad, it was like a train wreck. It was like a dramatic version of Howard's Head or Dream On :)

So, for some humor here is a little conversation I had this morning:

Them: so, what do you want for your birthday?
Us: I don't know. a phone. some cds and books. a garden. a job. world peace.
Us: :D
Them: hrmmm, last time I checked, Wal-MArt said they wouldn't be getting their next shipment of world peace until after the new year
Us: dammit!
Us: well that's better than SAMS, which was reporting it would be 2008 before another shipment came in
Them: wow...you know, I heard some places were getting preferential treatment...but you have to keep an eye out for inferior replacement products...I heard some people were getting world apathy and just placing a "peace" label on it
Us: hehehe
Us: I also read that some places were replacing the wording "martial law" with "world peace" and hoping no one notices
Them: man, that sucks...martial law has so much aspartame in it...

You have to watch them en español. They're equally silly, but somehow more palatable when they're not speaking a language you can understand well. And the men...

Re your conversation: :-)

I do need to watch them en español! I still need to brush up on my Spanish. Luckily there were some Spanish speakers in the show, and they spoke in Spanish rather than English. It was good practice.
