We had a blast at my boyfriend’s Nerdy 30 Birthday Party! We spent a lot of good times with great friends. My boyfriend won the nerdiest dressed contest, and our friend Kyle ended up being the nerdiest of all. His score of 5 on the Nerd Test put him in the clear lead. We spent the night laughing and playing pool! The gift bags, tiaras, and nerd card were a big hit. Pictures to...
The Nerdy 30!
My boyfriend’s Nerdy 30 Birthday party is almost upon us!!! I’m so freaking excited. I will take and post lots of silly photos! Enjoy!!
My boyfriend’s 30th Birthday is coming up, and I have been getting ready. I got my costume (It is a nerd party with a prize for nerdiest dressed), I made grab bags, and I just finished the Nerd Quiz! We will separate the Nerds from the Wannabees! I’m so excited. Wednesday can’t get here fast enough!
I want to take a bath, but I also want to watch my show and/or read. I need to be able to do these things at the same time. No, I can’t just read in the bathtub. Several books being dropped in the water is proof that this is a bad idea. I need someone to read to me…that would make it all better! Where is my boyfriend? This is more important than his homework right? Why can’t he...
How interesting is this? When I was a kid I got made fun of all the time for my goofiness. Other kids thought I was weird. This morning I asked my boyfriend why he loved me, and in his top five reasons was my goofiness. Interesting how the world changes when you become an adult.
I just learned that Corgi’s only live an average of 10 to 11 years. That makes me sad. My poor Harley’s life is half over. How did she get so old so fast? I was hoping she would live as long as I did. Too bad.
I know that most of the time the twitches I have are unrelated to my condition. When, however, do I know? I feel like I need to find someone else who is symptomatic to ask them questions about their progression. I might have a better idea of how things are going to present. Right now, everything that happens I fear is related. I know it can’t be, but it is hard not to make every mole hill...
I went for a walk today, and after consulting google maps, it was about 2 to 2.5 miles. It was nice. The weather is perfect, and I got to watch the sun go down. Also, the picture of our duplex on google maps hasn’t been updated since July, 2008. Apparently the people who lived here then had a red car, a red SUV and a motorcycle. They were also doing construction work on our road at the...
My boyfriend and I use face as a term of endearment. We also use it in our joking around insults. Example: Me, “This place is really pink.” Him, “Your face is pink.” We say it all the time. It is funny for us. However I have reached a point where I can’t read the word face without giving it extra oomph in my head. Example: Turn around and face the door. I read:...
My boyfriend’s little brother came to visit for a couple of days. It is always a lot of fun to have him in town. We played a lot of games, and watched some good TV. The funnest parts were playing Frisbee as a family, and going to the local festival to dance in front of a live band. I have missed going to concerts and dancing. It was great! Also, we planned an early surprise party for my...
I posted a while back that I was having twitches that were most likely unrelated to my HD. Today I’ve been having leg twitches that are starting to get me worked up. I know that they are most likely nothing, but it is so scary. I want to scream every time. I haven’t said anything to my boyfriend because it is nothing. I’ve also been trying to hide my upsetness from my step-son....
How Do I Deal?
A co-worker found out about my Huntington’s Disease today. He is an older gentleman probably 70. He sat quietly for a second, and then he asked me, “How do you deal with that?” I didn’t know what to say. I just deal. I live my life. I cry when the mood strikes me. Sometimes I get down in the dumps. Sometimes I feel strong. How do I even go about answering such a questions? ...
Tired and Sore
I am so tired and so sore from work. I have this weird problem where I care about my work. I like to work hard, and I like to see a positive outcome from my work. However, some of the people I work with have decided that since I like to work hard I should want to do their job and my job. They thought wrong.
Geek Shirt Made
I had a shirt made for my boyfriend’s nerdy 30 Birthday party. It says: I LIKE IT DIRTY AND NERDY! It is written in the Star Trek classic font. It also has a floppy disk on the back. It looks awesome. I’m so excited.
Getting Ready for the Family Event
I started off the morning of the big family race by eating a healthy breakfast of roast, and vegan cookies. I followed up with an early morning Mt. Dew to give me an energy boost. For lunch I consumed two McDonald’s hamburgers and started in on a large sweet tea. I feel like all this caffeine and sugar may give me an edge over my terrible diet, and perhaps just enough of an edge to beat the...
Family Race Day
Our eight year old believes that he is stronger, and faster than my boyfriend and I. Not really sure why. No matter what we say about the science he doesn’t believe it. So today we are going to go out to the track at the university and we are going to have a family race day. We are going to see who is the fastest, who can run the longest, and whether or not my step-son can run a mile. I...
I thought I was getting a lot better at controlling my impulse to slap old people who annoy me about growing old. For example, I already posted a story about two old guys complaining about being old. I wanted to slap them and tell them that I will not get to be old. So shut up and be happy about it. Recently a co-worker told me that I am not old. I have a long time before I am old, and when I am...
My boyfriend’s birthday is coming up at the end of the month. We had already decided to go to his favorite bar to play pool, and we have invited everyone along. I am excited. I like to have theme parties! So, I am throwing my boyfriend a NERDY 30 Birthday Bash!!! I have asked all of our friends to dress up as nerds, and come out to party. I bought what I needed for my costume, and I love...
Today, I got a certificate from work for being there for one year. It is nice to get a certificate simply for existing…and being awesome!
We did another round of rocket launching today! Went well overall. We had several successful launches as well as a wonderful failure. One of the rockets didn’t release it’s parachute until it was already nose down in the dirt. It was funny. My step-son enjoys chasing them down to retrieve them. It is cute to watch him run.
Playing at the Park
We went to the park this evening. It was my best friend, my step-son, and myself. We had a blast. We played on the swings. Then we pushed my step-son on the tire swing. There were some other little kids for my kiddo to play with, and he enjoyed that. In the end it was just great to be out in the beautiful sunshine. In fact, my step-son behaved so well, as in making the right decision when other...
Sock Puppets Cont.
After playing with the puppets we ended up with a rabbit that has no eyes, ears, nose, or whiskers. All he has left is one tooth. So my step-son has named him Faceless.
Lately, I have been getting these feelings that I can only explain as being overwhelmed. I don’t know how to describe them any better. I also don’t know where they come from. They make me cranky, and tired. I’m not sure if I should be contributing them to my HD. They are off enough that they have my boyfriend concerned.
Sock Puppets are not as easy to make as they may seem. We bought a kit for my step-son for his birthday, and finally decided it was time to use it. We got out all of the supplies and set off making a rabbit, a snake, a pig, and a weird looking dude. As we began working, we realized the socks they supplied us with didn’t have heels! Making them talk was now almost impossible. To make it worse...
