What I did on my day off:


Lunch with Rob and Adam at a semi-poncy but very good restaurant here in Littleton. They go to the trouble of making their own butter and bread, and the waiters are actually knowledgeable about the food.

I had a wedge salad (oh, the glories of iceberg lettuce! Once in a while, it's nice to let something be a foil for other ingredients) and fried grits with shrimp (bacon/tomato cream sauce) and part of Rob's white truffle fries with Parmesan, and a pale ale. It was a nice boozy lunch.

After which we went to the indoor flea market and tried on desert camo and funny hats, and I found a wedding dress I could actually see myself wearing, even though there is no wedding even remotely in my future. It was topped by a lavender hat with a big bow that I made the boys promise one of them would wear.

And my sister sent a gorgeous gold lame opera coat. I need a black silk v-neck sheath with a pencil skirt, STAT. The best part? This one fits. In this shot, it's lying on the dining room table.


Speaking of things that fit, I also got my two shirts from Cafepress today:


It reads: "My cancer is rarer than your cancer. Neener neener."
I think it'll go quite nicely with my hat:

have you seen the "Crazy sexy cancer" stuff? I remember it airing on TLC forever ago. They had a "fuck cancer" beanie that was pretty amazing - http://crazysexylife.com/shop/

Oh, dear dearie me. . .that coat is stunning- the kind of thing you put on a wooden hanger and hang on the wall just to stare at and let the daydreams flow. .

Silly thing. Love your sense of humor. Never seen a t-shirt like yours, although some of my patients come in wearing "Nurses are Hot" tshirts in glitter. And of course, the 'ol "Cancer Sucks."

LOVE the tshirt and baseball cap. I think you are the most capable human beings I have ever come across.

I love me a good wedge salad - just like Mom used to make! Several restaurants in my area now serve this.

The gold lame coat is a work of art, and as such, I would hang in on a wall.

Fuck Cancer is right!
