Can I just tell you? I’m stupid excited for Dancing With The Stars to return tonight.
I know… Let the mocking begin.
And while we’re taking about stupid excited, I finally ditched the Blackberry and bought an iPhone last night. I actually dreamed about the damn thing all night. I haven’t even had it 24 hours yet and I’m already in love with it.
I’ve been getting insane sinus headaches/migraines for years, but they’ve been more frequent and more intense in the last 2 or 3 years. They come in clusters and hurt so much I wish I could remove my head. If I catch them early enough Aleve and Sudafed can alleviate (see how I made a funny?) some of the pain and pressure. But I usually have to let the migraines run their course before I get any real relief.
A few months ago I noticed the sinus headaches were less frequent, less painful and more manageable, and after doing a happy dance over that, I did some research and found out that yoga actually helps with sinus problems. Apparently, the inversions you do in yoga act as a natural flushing mechanism for the sinuses. The blood circulates with tremendous force into the the sinuses, clearing away the secretions to clear the passageways and restore free breathing.
It’s been pretty miraculous for me because they were so debilitating for so long, and I finally feel like there’s some hope.
When Gracie was a puppy she’d eat her own poop and I thought we had broken her of that, but not only is she still doing it, but she taught Penny to do it. And it’s not like a little nibble or a taste, they devour it. They will actually watch each other poop and practically grab it before it hits the ground. And while it makes cleaning up after them easier, it’s disgusting. Gracie wants out in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom and grab herself a little midnight snack.
I’ve tried all the powders and pills that are supposed to work and they don’t. Someone recently suggested putting crushed pineapple in their food so I’m trying that next.
If you have any other ideas, bring ‘em on.
I went to a Dodgers game on Saturday night and it was weird because the stadium was so empty that I never once had to stand in line for the bathroom or for food. When the hell does that ever happen? While I liked not having to wait and loved being able to actually watch the game and not listen to it on the loudspeaker, it says a lot about how the McCourts fucked up a great team. All the fighting over the division of their property—including the Dodgers—instead of paying attention to what happens at Chavez Ravine has ruined the team. The fans clearly still don’t feel safe (as evidenced by the low attendance) and they aren’t coming out to support the team.
I hope the MLB steps in and forces the sale to someone who actually cares about the Dodgers otherwise they’re going to lose the support of the few remaining fans.
