Recent pleasures:

     GIRL SCOUT COOKIES, NOM NOM NOM NOM! =D Got my boxes on Monday after craving them all weekend. I do love this time of year!

     I survived Monday, in which I had to cram in Performance Appraisal write-ups for all 'my' people on top of covering Corey's work and all the little things that popped up. Glad to have that out of my hair...and grateful once again for this LJ, as once again it helped me remember stuff to put on my own list for the review.

     The Towners were so kind as to insist upon giving me a ride from work to the hospital today, and then home afterward, so I could ride the bus in the morning. It was doubly a blessing, as it was around -6 F/ -21 C out this morning with -30ish windchills, and my car might not have even started.

     Nancy's birthday today, which entailed her bringing in a tray of super-yummy super-gooey rice krispy bars.

     And of course, the main event: my head MRI. It was amusing because my coworkers were warning me about needing to cough or sneeze when I got in there, and I figured my nose/face might start itching because that happens at apheresis after I get needles in both arms and can't scratch. What I did not expect was for the MRI noises to sound funny! Overactive imagination at play, because at first it sounded like some deranged Fantasia-style orchestra warming up, and there was a later bit that sounded like an Atari game from the 1980s. Entertainment was not lacking, especially once I imagined Hu-Harek taking the machine apart to see how it works, and t'DoL checking it out less obtrusively, then changing into hyarmi form to do it faster. I forget how soft and fuzzy-cute he is in hyarmi form! =D All that is to say, aside from the urges to start grinning or giggling, holding still was no problem! (Now it's just waiting up to a week for the results.)

     And a treat to get home earlier than a normal workday...though of course the cats are expecting dinner early too!

Re: =)
Thanks! And thanks for your prayers! *hugs*

They gave me earplugs and put pads over my ears on top of that, so though it was loud at times, it wasn't headache-inducing! Then again, maybe playing in pep band in younger years innured me to that! ;)

Sounds like quite a good day. I hope things turn out well with the MRI.

Just a question out of curiosity... what are girl scout cookies like? I've never had them before and have no idea what kind of cookie they are.

Thanks! =)

There's actually 8 varieties, which makes choosing a bit difficult! Samoas and Tagalongs are my favorites, but I love the Trefoils as well.

You can see all the kinds right here, hope it doesn't make you too hungry! ;)

know of anyone who sells them. What kinds did you get?

I got two boxes each of Samoas and Tagalongs, and one box each of Trefoils and Thank U Berry Munch, but I wanted one box to share at work.
