Time for a new post

It’s been too long and I’ve been too insanely busy to write, much less reflect on my life as of recent. My birthday was Monday the 16th (see my new time counter on the Profile page), and my parents “surprised” me by coming to town the day before (more like half-surprised, as mom is not too good at keeping secrets, although I didn’t know the exact date they were coming).

I’ve been terribly busy with my day job event planning for the big Forum next week and juggling massage clients & training a new therapist to work with me.

Oh yeah, and my estrogen levels are the highest they have ever been…3100 as of last count. Today was the big day, I took my last injection of hormones to prepare my precious eggs for retrieval 36 hours later, to be used by who-knows-who, who-knows-when. Somehow I’m very happy about the prospect of my genes being carried on in the world, even if I don’t get to oversee them.

My roommate keeps holding to his view that reproduction is just vanity at its finest, that with the scarcity of resources, & number of unwanted children needing able parents, why reproduce at all? Of course, it should be noted that my roommate is homosexual and therefore this worldview suits him perfectly. Always something to chew on here in San Francisco.

I’ve also been wanting to share this picture I took of the stock room at Jack in the Box near my day-job. I had just been wondering to myself whether Jack in the Box had jumped on the no-more-trans-fats wagon, when I rounded the curve toward the drive-thru window and got a peep of towers and towers of boxes labeled “All Vegetable Frying Shortening.” Jury is still out.

Well, it seems my last “deleting rarely-used files” spree ended in me not being able to upload pictures from my camera at the moment, so the picture of those boxes will have to wait. Also missing are the pictures from the Lily Allen concert I attended with my roommate as his birthday present. Hopefully they will be coming soon…
