In Sickness and In Health

Ok so I need to get THAT post off the top.

And even though today still sucked some serious arse, (or ASS, as you Americanos call it) ... it was of course better than yesterday.

Mr TC really made an effort tonight .. was teaching Tiger how to make a cup of tea. They laughed and talked for about 10 minutes, how it warmed (thawed) my heart! Then, Mr TC was talking about how he sleeps upstairs. He said something about how I "don't care about the old sick man upstairs anymore." I felt so bad. I kissed him, told him I wanted to breathe his breath. (We used to say that when we first got together). I said I'm sorry, I had reached my limit with it all months ago, and I just don't know how I'm getting through these days.


I'm about to fall asleep on my computer. I need to shut it off ... without even reading anybody's blog. Take take take, tsk tsk. I still haven't set up a google reader account, but I will.

Sweet Topcat,

I wonder if you've fallen asleep over there across the globe -- and I hope that its a deep and dreamless sleep where you can recharge. I am so fucking grateful to the universe that you are out there, blogging -- I wish I could be where you are, but for now I hope just the knowledge of the place you hold in my heart - it is there, and I am thinking of you. You are strong woman, but let us be strong for you too and hold you a bit.

If you're like me I never wanted anyone to hold me either -- but I hope you'll grant me a bit of permission to do it virtually.

How in the world can I follow up a post like Pam's right above me? No fucking way, that's how. Or how not.

So I'll leave you with a joke instead.

There were three horny dogs (A British bulldog, A German shephard and a Chihuaha)

A poodle walked by and she says "Ill let one of you fuck me if you can use liver and cheese in the same sentence"

The Bulldog says "I hate liver and cheese"

She says "Nope that wont work"

The German shephard says "I love liver and cheese"

She says "Nope that wont work"

The Chihuaha says "Liver alone cheese mine"

God - I can't top Pam OR Nancy and their unique styles.

So I'll just be sure to send you a tank drawing.

Thinking of you with great affection and admiration. Hang in there, girl.

"take, take, take..." YES. That's what we are here for. Sometimes in life you just need to recieve. It's a good lesson to all of us to see you do so gracefully (and you do!) so that when our turn comes to take, we'll know it's okay because you've shown us that it is. Women have this thing against taking and it's wrong. Rest in the fact that we love giving to you. No expectations in return.
