Donut day

Here’s a rare picture of the Loyal Blogger, celebrating National Donut Day (note the conflicting spelling between the Wikipedia article and the poster – I believe both are correct – at least that’s what the dictionary says – what’s your opinion, Loyal Readers?) the right way: with a fresh lemon-jelly-filled donut.  Great Art by LRN4, courtesy of the exclusive iPhone-cam, and part of my famous Event series.

Pretty good day today.  We got out a bit in the morning, after the morning infusion.  Went to the post office (received a birthday card – I assume, anyway – from LRN23 to add to my amazing pile of extravagant cards and gifts), stopped in at the donut shop next door for a few minutes to celebrate, and went to Wally World to exchange some inappropriately-fitting pants we bought for LRN4, buy some additional pants for her, and buy some shirts for me to replace a few hideously worn out ones LRN4 has convinced me to get rid of.  I like the stuff we got.  Then we went to the local library, talked our way into library cards (actually, it was easy – they pretty much give them to anybody in the hospital), browsed, and checked out a bunch of books.  I think LRN4 is back to work!  I, on the other hand, did no work.  Then we came home and spent the day quietly.

Tomorrow’s the happiest day of the year!  That’s right, Loyal Readers, it’s Morrow’s Birthday!  It’ll be on the calendar someday, but in the meantime, please celebrate irresponsibly.  I plan to.  Might even get another donut.  We were scheduled to spend the evening with my cousin Betsy and her husband Bob at their home for a joint birthday party for Betsy and me.  However, she called this evening to let me know she’s not feeling completely well, so we postponed it to Monday.  Or possibly later.  It would be kind of a shame to make LRN4 sick for a birthday party, even if it is the happiest party of the year.

So tonight is Morrow’s Birthday Eve.  LRN4 and I are observing it by reading and watching The King of Queens, How I Met Your MotherJeopardy, Wheel of Fortune, and Monk.  Quite an evening.

No news on LRN4’s health outlook, of course.  We won’t get another blood draw until Sunday, so we wait.

And that’s it for tonight.  Just a reminder for new readers of the blog – there are no updates on weekends.  Check out that motto up there at the top of the page.  I’ll leave my Loyal Readers with this shocking food violence news: Crustacean Combat!

    Relatively low carb. Mistakes were made.

    Inappropriately fitting pants or ill fitting pants?

  5. michael Says:

    Let’s just say they were improperly fitting pants.
