Friday Fragments!

Friday Fragments?

It's that time of the week for Friday Fragments! Head on over to Mrs. 4444's blog who is the originator of this fine topic and read her Fragments as well as the fragments of other lovely bloggers! Happy Fragmenting!

*The visit with my parents last weekend was great. My only issue was that it went by too fast! I've missed them a lot more than I ever thought I would. I love that my relationship with my parents has gotten stronger as I've gotten older. I feel like I can be very open and honest with them and they don't run and hide when I do open up!

**Stupid OB-GYN! I get some bad test results, they call and tell me they've made a referral and I need to call and schedule the appointment, I do that and I'm told that because of the baby boom on Fort Campbell I'll have to be seen off post (I'M NOT HAVING A BABY I JUST NEED A TEST, GEEZE!) which means I will have to call Tri-Care and get the preferred provider list and choose a GYN from there...oh, and you won't be able to call until next Tuesday! So, let me get this call me with bad news, alarm me, worry me, and stress me out and then tell me there will be no clarification on what is wrong with me until after next Tuesday considering I seriously doubt the new doctor will be able to get me in right away. GRR!

***OK, here's a T.M.I. moment (I debated on whether or not to include this but oh well...) Phantom Poop: Does everyone have it? Where does it go? Does it leave anyone else wondering "Did I really poop or was that a figment of my imagination?" Ok, yeah, probably just have skipped over that fragment but I was just wondering.

****While on my drive home from East TN I saw a guy with his arm out the window. The window was not all the way down but about a quarter of the way down. Interesting. I begin to pass him and he lowers his arm in the car, picks his nose, and puts his arm back out the window. GROSS! He continued to do this for at least 5 miles...ggggghhhh!

*****Unfortunately I ended up going to East TN the same weekend as the NASCAR race. Therefore, I got to experience idiots on the interstate driving like they were NASCAR drivers.

******I think I've blogged before about caption writers spelling things wrong. Well, I was watching Intervention recently, you know the show about addiction, my name is Mrs. Ski, M-r-s. S-k-i, and while deciphering what addict was saying they spelled Lortab and Xanax in caption in the following ways: "Loritab" and "Xanex" Come on people! You broadcast a show based on drug addiction! The funniest part was that they spelled both of the drug names right later on in the show. Sidebar: I know how to spell these drugs because I worked in pharmacies for 6+ years, not because I am a pill popper. Although a Xanax while flying really calms the nerves!

*******And now for the Mitch Hedberg quote of the week: "I was at this casino minding my own business, and this guy came up to me and said, "You're gonna have to move, you're blocking a fire exit." As though if there was a fire, I wasn't gonna run. If you're flammable and have legs, you are never blocking a fire exit."


  1. Well, just think: it would have been a lot grosser had he been eating them instead of flinging them out the window. Just sayin.' : )

  2. Good point Kori...good point!

  3. OMG I'm LOL about phantom's in the tunnel...I think...I hope...LOL

  4. Great ending quote!

    Hope everything comes out well regarding your tests.

  5. People get addicted to Loritab? I got that when I tore my hamstring and refused to take it because it made me feel horrible!

    My husband's doctor did that to him today. Called with bad news and important follow-up...that doesn't occur until Sept 15. WHY CALL if you are going to take over 2 weeks to get him in?!

  6. I love Intervention and also get many laughs from the curious spellings offered by closed caption writers. Wow- it's like we're soul sisters!

    Nice to meet you, by the way! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  7. I love watching the closed caption thing just for the way they 'interpret' what's being said...I know, I'm easily amused. ;)

    We had a discussion about poop when we were visiting our friends in LA this summer - my friend works in a doctor's office and apparently the 'phantom' poop is ultra healthy 'cuz it drops right into oblivion...floaters, on the other hand, are not healthy. There's some TMI right back atcha! ;)

    It's annoying when doctors call with bad news and then you can't get to see a 'new' doctor anytime soon to find out...hopefully you'll find out that it's not all that bad, just that it's something your doctor couldn't take care of. ;)

    Happy FF! :)

  8. OMG! Phantom Poop! LOL!!!!!!!!!! So funny and so true.

    As for the docs. I hate when they do that too. They do that with my Mom a lot. It annoys me to no end. I tell my Mom to keep calling until someone tells her something. They eventually do.

  9. That really stinks about the OB GYN! I sure hope the new doctor can get you in quickly and that your results come back with good news!

  10. Oh my gosh! Lol at phantom poop! Then had to pause Seinfeld to read it to my hubby! Hahahaha!

    Hope your womanly health is ok.
