You are so right…..i am currently fighting my third cancer battle in four years. My initial diagnosis was cancer in the colon. After surgery and six months of chemo (Mostly 5FU and avastin…and trust me, after 46 hours of 5FU, you feel like you been FU’ed 5 different ways)….six months later it moved to my liver where it turned nasty (a mutated aggressive cancer, Kras +)….followed by more surgery and two months off work AND three months more of chemo. Had two years of good health then it returned a year ago in the form of tiny tumors and spots (my joke was i had more spots than a Dalmatian!) At this point i have been on a regimen of pills and infusions every three weeks and so far, everything is being held at bay. My oncologist feels with my snarky attitude (Heaven don’t want me and Hell still has that restraining order on me), as long as my body tolerates the chemo and the cancer doesn’t figure a way around it, i am good for a few years yet! (I have already outlived the typical prognosis at diagnosis by a few years)
Sadly, i know full well chances are i may survive this only to get another nasty form of cancer down the road, possibly due to my drugs…but i am willing to roll the dice on that. I may be Stage IV, but my goal is to avoid Stage V at most all costs!
If i recall my history correctly, at one time, the runner-up in the vote was the Veep….Hence you had Federalist John Adams and Republican VP Tom Jefferson…..
The Founding Fathers made the US a republic for a reason. While in many instances, majority vote rules, they set things up so the rights of unpopular minorities could not be done away by popular vote. The also knew that certain areas could easily outweigh the rest of the country vote wise, hence the Electoral College was installed so the small states wouldn’t be run over by a few big ones
THANK YOU! I also ignore celebrities every chance i get (I find that giving them too much attention only encourages them)…
“I see those guns and fold (like an accordion!)!”
I prefer the understated villain commentary…in a story i recently finished, i used it quite a bit….for instance, in one scene, one villain is being betrayed by a group of ‘allied’ villains, and she calls then ‘betrayers’ One of the other group zaps her with an energy beam while commenting “Let’s leave the dirty laundry in-house, shall we?”
Reminds me of an old Homer and Jethro routine from many years ago….
Jethro “Are you mad?”Homer “No i am not mad.”Jethro “Are you sure you aint mad?”Homer “No, i am not mad” Jethro “Are you sure?”Homer “Well, now that you mentioned it, i am a little steamed up….”Jethro “Funny, you dont look mad….”(after the laughter dies down….)Homer “How do you like that? 28 years of working with an idiot!”Jethro “Ahh, you’ll get used to it…i did….”
Nope….Bill got them all…
With a bit of horror there as well…
