You seem a decent fellow. I hate to die.

Changed the look of the place a little because it took me a while to load up the “Component” version on the journal on my friend’s dial up connection. Blech. Kinda like it, as I’m a fan of the simple designs of web sites rather than the intricate ones. Dunno but to me it seems like if you can create a very simple yet visually appealing design, you’re better in my book. *shrugs*

Anyway, I had my heart ultrasound this past Friday and it was pretty damn cool. However, I am not sure if this is normal but the woman who took my ultrasound made it feel like she wanted to puncture my skin to get an accurate reading of my heart and everything. I swear, she used her free hand to grasp the bed so that she could get more leverage to push that infernal device deeper into my chest, throat and diaphragm area. The odd part was that when she was taking my readings while I was on my side, I could feel and hear the sound waves bouncing off my chest and especially in my heart. Let me tell ya folks, it’s not a pleasant feeling at all, especially when she kept on changing frequencies! The sound was really annoying too. Granted you’re not really supposed to be able to hear the ultrasound itself, I have always had very sensitive hearing. I have always been able to hear do whistles and fuck is that an annoying ass sound. One of my neighbors is using a dog whistle when he walks his dog to train it and the fucker wakes me up every god damn morning for the past few weeks when he’s outside my window blowing on that damned whistle.

Either way, the nurse (or technician or doctor) let me see the images on the monitor while she was taking it and let me tell you it looked really cool. Hard to put into words what it’s like to actually see an image of your own heart beating and seeing how your actions can change the way it works. I noticed it was beating pretty hard and fast while she was taking my measurements at first because it felt pretty uncomfortable, but I started breathing a lot more slowly and relaxed and I saw it calm down. MAN did that blow my mind.

When we were done, I asked her if it looked ok and she told me that she was not allowed to tell me for legal reasons. However, she did tell me everything looked all right and that I have nothing to worry about. Cool. Got my blood work results yesterday in the mail and it says I passed although my glucose levels in the blood were on the higher side. Normal range this paper says is in the 65-99 mg/dL (micrograms per deciliter??) and mine came out to 94. Everything else though, was either in the middle or in the low end of their appropriate ranges. The only part that upset me a little was that my cholesterol reading was not in this documentation and that’s what I really needed to find out. Hopefully the doc will let me know when I see her again in a couple of weeks.

Here’s a preview of what I will be seeing in a few minutes:

Vizzini: I can’t compete with you physically, and you’re no match for my brains.
Westley: You’re that smart?
Vizzini: Let me put it this way. Have you ever heard of Plato, Aristotle, Socrates?
Westley: Yes.
Vizzini: Morons.

[and]

Westley: Who are you? Are we enemies? Why am I on this wall? Where is Buttercup?
Inigo Montoya: Let me ‘splain.
Inigo Montoya: No, there is too much. Let me sum up. Buttercup is marry’ Humperdinck in a little less than half an hour. So all we have to do is get in, break up the wedding, steal the princess, make our escape… after I kill Count Rugen.
Westley: That doesn’t leave much time for dilly-dallying.
Fezzik: You just wiggled your finger. That’s wonderful.
Westley: I’ve always been a quick healer. What are our liabilities?
Inigo Montoya: There is but one working castle gate, and… and it is guarded by 60 men.
Westley: And our assets?
Inigo Montoya: Your brains, Fezzik’s strength, my steel.
Westley: I mean, if we only had a wheelbarrow, that would be something.
Inigo Montoya: Where we did we put that wheelbarrow the albino had?
Fezzik: Over the albino, I think.
Westley: Well, why didn’t you list that among our assets in the first place?

Why can’t they make movies like this anymore???

You know, I have yet to meet someone who did not absolutely love this movie. I don’t think such a person exists. 🙂

I agree…such a person would, well, just suck.

I like your layout, btw

What’s your diagnosis? Or are you still being tested?

“I swear, she used her free hand to grasp the bed so that she could get more leverage to push that infernal device deeper into my chest, throat and diaphragm area.”

grrrrrr….but it sounds like things might be ok with that area, hopefully *crosses fingers*.

“One of my neighbors is using a dog whistle when he walks his dog to train it and the fucker wakes me up every god damn morning for the past few weeks when he’s outside my window blowing on that damned whistle.”

HAHAHAHA! I’m so glad to see that I’m not the only one who has ignorant idiots for neighbors.

The Princess Bride is one of those movies you have to drop everything and watch everytime you find it on TV. My dad was flipping channels one day while I was half-watching with him and he says “Look, there’s Andre the Giant” and I screamed at him, “Stop!! We have to watch this!” It was the part you just quoted. When it got the wedding part, I just about pissed myself as the priest starts to talk. “Mawwage” My dad just looked at me like I had lost it. :sigh: I need to actually buy that movie!

Yeah, I just saw your entry with muffler person. Sheesh! Talk about inconsiderate. I also have one of those morons as well in my neighborhood. *sigh*

Thanks!

Welp, it looks like all of the tests are done, so I will have to wait another couple of weeks for my followup checkup.

Ahhh, you know one time while I was at Rutgers they actually played this movie at an outside park on a huge screen where several hundred to a thousand of us stood and recited pretty much the whole entire movie as it was playing. We all went insane when the “mawwage” part came up.

But yeah, you’re right. ANYTIME this movie is on TV, you have to watch it. The best part is that they almost always play this movie in it’s entirety without any sound edits because it had clean language in it.

Mawage. Mawage is wot bwings us togeder tooday. Mawage, that bwessed awangment, that dweam wifin a dweam…
And wuv, tru wuv, will fowow you foweva…
So tweasure your wuv.
Prince Humperdinck: Skip to the end.
Have you the wing?
Prince Humperdinck: Man and wife. Say man and wife.
Man an’ wife.

well the high glucose level could be what may causing these things to happen… I dont want to worry you but get checked for adult diabetis, just to be safe 🙂 *HUGS*

Whisper

that was one of the greatest movies of all time. Lets not forget the soundtrack done by Mark knoffler either!

The doc also mentioned this before as well while I was first talking to him because I showed him my bloodwork as well that I had received the year before which shows elevated levels of glucose in my blood (though a little bit higher than what I received before). But there’s a few other factors in the blood readouts that would also indicate some form of diabetes which my blood showed as well below levels considered a threat. Only the glucose was a little high yet within safe levels so he ruled that out. I suppose the rest of the results would give him a better understanding of things.

Yeah, it’s the best movie ever.

Classic now, but I remember seeing it in the theatre. Old skool and such.

I don’t know why they don’t make movies like that, but if you read the book you will get a glimpse of it. It’s amazing – the book is so indepth.\

Anyway, I dig your quotes and writing 🙂

-I have that movie here. If you don’t mind a toddler, come on
over and watch it with me. I’ll even make popcorn. People
who quote movies ALWAYS make me swoon.

I hope your heart is good to go for sure!

I hd a chest X ray friday, and the tech couldn’t tell me anything either (legal reasons), however she did say, it looked fine to her.

Yay! Fun with medical stuffs. Does it ever end?

Actually, I have the book (it’s HUGE!) but I have not gotten a chance to read it. I am told the book is amazing and that the movie is just a small section of the entire book.

Thanks! 🙂

Wooooo! Princess Bride is always an experienced best shared. 🙂 I’ll definitely have to take you up on that offer one of these days! 😀

Woof! I hate chest X-Rays! As long as the tech alluded to the fact that you’re ok, that’s all good! I hope things with you are better as well!

Yeah the Book is AMAZING!!!! Seriously. So hilarious, like laugh out loud funny. Yeah, the book is just a small section…. and the book is so amazing

I had an ultrasound on my gall bladder done a year ago and I wanted to punch the chick she ground that damn thing into me to hard. o_O That sounded sooooo very wrong! ANYWAY! It hurt like hell so I can only imagine. I’m glad to hear that it’s so far so good!
