08/09/2005 08/06/2005 SCOTT’S SEAFOOD GRILL

Here is the story.

I had a seafood platter at Scott’s, a dozen Irish coffees at The Buena Vista Cafe and the Herb ‘n Cheese omlette at Bette’s. I can’t tell you what i got at the Spy Store or I’d have to kill you.

The shoe store was stressful as i had to stay within my budget. And i finally lost my midwest aka german hair cut at the john Velaquez salon. I look fabu, if i do say so myself.

I also ordered two 20 foot dumptsers to give you an idea of the amount of cleaning i did. I earned my keep, that’s for sure. the first few days, i stayed in a hotel as i was to share my sofa with the resident rat.

There is also a charge for an emergency vet visit. My new kitten got stuck in on a sticky rat trap. Only in california do they charge you 52.50 to give a 6 week old kitten a brazilian wax. I even provided the wax! Yes, i got a kitten in the U.S. I know there are kittens in Deutschland, but not as cute and i rescued this little guy.

Add Miranda’s surgery and subsequent ovarian cancer diagnosis and you have a vacation from hell. Miranda is not going to college this year. Instead she signed up for some hard core chemotherapy. And she will most definately lose all of her glorious hair. Small price to pay if we can keep her around. the next three years will tell.

So all of that said, I’m tired, strung out and smelly. Tomorrow I host a girl-only party for Mim’s friends before everyone else leaves for their first year of school. I will be drinking. A lot.

  1. Gaaaaah! What a holiday. I think you need to come back here and be bored out of your mind again.

    Very, very sorry about your sister. How difficult for all of you.

  2. Came across your blog this morning and responded for two reasons; heissescheisse made me laugh out loud; I used to live in Germany (Bielefeld) and speak German and immediately understood the translation; couldn’t figure out why I’d never heard this before! Second reason; I am also 33 and rarely see blogs that hit a cord with me (I just created my own blog last week, which right now is boring as hell, but I have high hopes)www.ctcthoughts.blogspot.com

  3. Hey,

    I’m sorry to hear that your sister’s not yet any better. I really hope for you that she’ll make it. After all I read about her in your brother’s post she’s a very positive person and those persons are very often fighters.

  4. I’m so sorry to hear about your sister. I’m not always great with words, but I really hope that things go well and that she gets through this. Yeah, like nastassja said, she does sound like a very positve person… that’s got to help.
