Home again, home again, jiggedy jig!

Good morning, all! I've made it home from "The Big Easy!" I had an awesome time, learned a lot, met way too many people, drank a few Hurricanes and even more Hand Grenades. I bought some fabulous new lingerie to sell, learned about new products and generally had fun. I also ate a Krystal burger. Oh! My! Fucking! God! They are HORRIBLE!!! I don't think they can even be classified as food. Take my advice, don't EVER eat at Krystal's.

Anyway, I'll probably be catching up on your blogs and will post a bigger report with some pictures (no nekkid ones, unfortunately) and I never got to wear my costume because fucking DELTA AIRLINES lost my luggage!!!!

Laissez Les Bon Temps Roulez, y'all!

24 blew out from under the bed:

Good to hear you had a great time, apart from your luggage, how frustrating.

On the geat wide highway called ROUTINE, you do seem to find those (lost luggage) detours to the unexpected little side roads. And do enjoy your side trips.

Looking forward to all of the details, and lovin' Ya all the while.

Fook me...the luggage is lost! When me and my girl flew to Fort Lauderdale on our second trip...I asked the gal at the airlines to send my lugage to Chicago then send them back to Los Angeles...I would pick them up on my way back...she said...Why on earth would she do that? I shruuged my shoulders and said...Funny thing, I said the same thing when ya'll did that on our previous trip to Fort Lauderdale.

The best burger I ever had was at a place called the Hockey Burger in the City of Industry. Yummy I was just a kid and couldn't eat a whole one.

Oh well...I was able to buy new clothes, um and nighties...hehehe.

Unknown said...

Hanging out in the Tropical Isle? That is where I lost my memory for the night on Hand Grenades...

and I pass a Krystal's every day and it pulls me... draws me to purchase the tiny square revolting nuggets of pure evil... BUT... I resist...

Delta lost my luggage once.. I got it back 3 days later... it looked like the plane had run over it. I feel for you.

and again.. THANK YOU!!!!

I see you noticed that I have kept Mulder busy in your absence.

Sorry he was disppointed you didn't bring him the pictures he craved.

Dazzed and Confused said...

I really am upset that you couldn’t wear your costume because you look so yummy in it.

Glad you’re back even if I got zero boob pics.

Ron said...

WELCOME wild and crazy woman, you!!

You have been SOOOOO missed, dear lady!

OMG...the luggage thing sounded horrible!!

(so, did you end up wearing your "birthday costume" instead??)

I had my luggage lost too, one time...isn't it a lovely experience?

And I'm embarrassed to say this but...I LOVE Krystal burgers...isn't that digusting? However, they're so small, you have to eat 4 to equal a normal size burger!!

Can't wait to hear about and see your trip!

Utter Basketcase said...

Oh BTW, I've got a 24 Hour photo post up now if you're interested and don't want to miss it! :-) xx

DJ Kirkby said...

'Let the good times roll'? Yeah baby, go! Lets see those pics. Can't believe your luggage got lost.

FiachraLili said...

*smiles* Glad your back safe and sound, hope your luggage gets back to you soon and in one piece.

Welcome back Nitebyrd. We missed you!

John-Michael said...

My Darling Friend, please forgive this intrusion … but knowing your compassionate Heart, I am compelled to send this to you. Please read it, and follow your Heart’s leading. I have unwavering trust in that. I Love You, Your Servant, John-Michael

Oh my darlings, you sure know how to make a girl cry. I have just come home briefly to check in, there are too many messages to answer but I appreciate each and everyone one of then so very much.

Unfortunately, I have been given a bit of a bum steer in terms of Jack being able to stay in Hospice with me. That is actually not the case, apart from a night here and there, so the woman that told me it was possible has really got a lot to answer for as I pinned all my hopes on this. Anyway, Jacks Dad came down and can stay at my place this week at least but that's it. After that who knows and yet they are saying I need to be in Hospice for a lot longer yet.

The pain last night, defied description I have never felt such pain in my life including child birth, I was a sobbing mess, eventually they had to knock me out and I finally got some rest. Anyway they are comparing scans and trying very hard to work out what is best to do. I know I desperately need chemo, the longer I go without it, the bigger the tumour is growing and pressing further on the nerves. So now not only do I have megga pain that is not responding to treatment, I have a child not welcome at Hospice and my life is completely screwed.

I spent the night in tears and most of the day too, I don't have think I have any left but who knows, I will let you know how tonight goes. I am a broken woman.

There is talk about Jack having to move up with David to Warragul and change schools and everything. I said NO WAY I am not giving him up when I am not ready to die and I am not giving him up twice. I will work something out. There is no way he needs to go to another school, he needs the security of his local school here and his friends and having close contact with me.

Anyway my friends, it is a lot to contemplate tonight, I will do my best and I will not be letting my son go away from me no matter what. Please keep praying and sending me your love and care, I need you all so desperately right now. I hate to have to go, but I must leave now to go back to Hospice as they need to medicate me there, it is too dangerous to be on the medication I need to be on at home.

I will be thinking of you and I will post again either tomorrow or the next day, I promise.

Love to you all, my heart is full of you love and hugs to each and every one of you. Xxxx

girlgonethreadwild said...

Ha! I read first Krystal Burger and somehow thought you'd post how good they are (cringe) as most peop's like those down here int he south...


but, good girl..

you were bashing them!

Grease soaked buns (and not the good kind)

-thought you'd appreciate that humor-

Stay clear! Krystals is horrible and should not be called FOOD.

Love seeing our doll on your sidebar... YOU ROCK! ~Monica :)

Ms Leather N Pearls said...
