Another Saturday Night...


G'day Bloggers.


This is how my vision was this morning. Or it could have been. If I was awake, that is. I was aware of pain before I was really even awake at 6am. The light was peeping in through the window on my side of the bed. Beloved asked me why I was hiding under the covers. I explained how I felt, and as he knows that I like my drugs, could he get me a panadol ? No thanks, I need to go to the toilet anyway, says me. I returned to bed and hid until after 8, and Beloved asked in a hopeful tone; "had the panadol worked?" Ever the optimist, my Beloved. He took one look at my face, arose, and turned the fan on and removed the doona as I looked a bit hot to him. Then he left me alone. I didn't really sleep, but it was 10 to 11 when Beloved arrived with toast and tea, but was still a bit taken aback when I sat up in bed with my sunglasses on. I'm not sure why. This man has been my beau for 24 years this July. He thought I just had a headache.........



So my day has been a very quiet one, even though Vegeboy has had 2 friends sleeping over since yesterday after school. Their numbers swelled to 4 this morning, but it's back to 3 again as they're staying tonight too....There are benefits to a migraine; Beloved has done the washing up, and cooked the boys the pancakes that they had been asking about since last night. They've spent a fair bit of time down at the river today, which is scary for me, but it's a testament to my improved health this evening that I can look remotely interested and impressed with their tales of belly-flopping backflips and double-forwards off the swing. Scary. Very scary. We usually have quite a number of kids arrive in our casualty department over the summer after having come off second best in an engagement with the river and it's environs............


More drugs enabled me to watch "Dirty Dancing" late this afternoon. I was sniffling whilst Beloved was snorting at the dialogue on the other side of the curtain. I love this movie. I bought it for myself for my birthday when GG and I were at BigW one day after Christmas, for the princely sum of $5. I had put it into the sideboard for a surprise (not me, everyone else) as my birthday doesn't usually involve too many gifts, and then forgot about it. I had to take it out of the plastic wrapper to watch it. Beloved wanted to know how old Jennifer Grey was when the movie was made. I'm not sure. Any ideas? I'll google her later. I don't remember seeing her on screen too often after that. I watched the features afterwards, The narrator stated that the movie was set in 1963, and that the music in the movie was a blend of 60's and 80's music, and that the 80's were in fact a celebration of the 60's, with shows like "Grease", "Happy Days", and restaurants like copying the styles of the 60's. Maybe, maybe not. I just think that it's amazing that I was watching a movie that was made in 1987, 20yrs ago, about a time that was over 20 years prior to that. I was 1 year old in 1963, and the DVD was a 15th anniversary edition. So I guess that the DVD had been on the shelf a while. Hence the $5 price tag. I think we should be on the look-out for a 20th anniversary sometime soon. Anyway, as I told Beloved, Patrick Swayze has an amazing back.... even if he was a bad boy.....great back, bad, bad boy..... naughty boy....
Sorry......I was carried away for a bit there....

Beloved and Scorpaboy will be home soon. They've been out riding, and Beloved's bunged up his bad knee. He's bringing home a heap of chips from the local chippo for the younger boys, and I need to cook some tea for the rest of us. There's a few episodes of "The Family Guy" to watch since there is so much testosterone in this place..........



I'm going to go and swallow a few more pills; the little man in my head has taken off his tap shoes and has switched to his clogs. I need to prevent him from putting on his hob-nail boots and dancing a very insistent cha cha. I think I need to book in for some Bowen Therapy this week. I'll try for Friday. I'm not working, and will be going to see Jack and his friends participate in the "World's Greatest Shave" in the morning, then he's playing soccer representing the school afterwards. That'll be interesting. He hasn't run onto a soccer field since last year. His fundraising is going well. So far, he has raised around $370, and we estimate he will make over $4oo. His aim is to raise $500, so hopefully, he'll get there. Laura, the only girl who is shaving her hair, has already raised over $1800! Go Laura!!!

Oh, and by the way, kudos to me for finally managing to place a photo into my blog where I wanted it moved to, instead of all of them at the top with the writing underneath.... I hope I can do it again... I took me ages... and I thought I lost it all in the process.... not good when there's a little man doing a clog-dance in your head..... And I will try to make the font a bit bigger this time, too....I'm still having trouble with my spacing, though.....

Another blog about nothing..... If "Seinfeld" was still on, you might see this blog featured in a lap-top on Jerry's coffee table, next to the coffee table book on coffee tables, whilst the show about nothing was playing on the telly........

Maybe my next post will be more compelling.......


Love,

I'm good today, thanks Jen. The little man is just leaning on the back of my neck today, without tapping his bare feet.....

Jewell said...

Anchell said...

I am compelled by patrick swayzes butt everytime I see it move...yum yum....I loved that movie and didnt think there was anything wrong with her hooter....

Cyndy said...

mmm....Patrick Swayze's butt... I've always made it a rule; never go out with a guy who's butt is smaller than mine...snort...as if he'd go out with me...snort, snort..snoff...sniff.
I thought her nose was just fine, too....

Kris said...

I sympathize with the painful noggin! I've had a migraine for the last 4-5 days!

Wonderful posts, love!

Lisa said...

love you cyndy loo.
migraine- makes me want to cry just thinking about it and that picture is SO spot on- mersyndol works better than panadol and pethedine works better than mersyndol....nurafen plus are pretty good as well as is digging a deep hole in the doonas and lying there all day...........am i the only women in this world who doesnt like patrick swayze? yuck and then yuck again cubed....and as for 'dirty dancing' well, Im afraid Im with Beloved on that one- what an awful movie..........HOWEVER, what every works for you and your migraine is fine by me- lets drink enormous amounts this Sunday........FAMILY...............snoff, plurge times 15........xxx

oh yea I get those little thunder bolts too. But, mine come on before the actual migraine and sometime if I go lay down in a quiet place and dim the lights I can avoid it with a little ibuprofen.The dumb ass in my office gives me a HEADACHE ON A ROUTINE BASIS. Like right now she is talking to me and talking to me and I just try to ignore her but dammit she won't shut up!!
