Three Down, Five To Go

Remember that famous scene in The Magic Christian where Peter Sellers has built a giant cesspool and filled it with fresh feces, blood, and other repulsive excrement? And as he tosses pound notes into the vat, expressionless business men in expensive suits climb into the muck and splash around, grabbing for the money?

That's how I feel today, except it's not money I'm grabbing for. It's that elusive and coveted state called "remission."

Bleagh.

Oh yeah, and it's my birthday. 53.

Happy birthday! I do hope you get a nice big box of remission, enough to last several more decades, and that it arrives really soon.

I also love your socks.

Happy Birthday, Liz.

I think that actually means, Happy Liz's birthday to the internets. You are truly a gift to the blogosphere. May you have many, many more joyous birthdays.

Love,
Rose

PS: Love the socks! Are you still wearing Turkish Whorehouse Red on your toenails?
