I'm so hungry I could eat the crotch out of a rag doll...

...but I won't.

I'm having a colonoscopy today and have been denied food (except for Jello and chicken broth, which, in my book, don't count) since yesterday morning. There's a McDonald's down the street from the hospital that will be our first stop on the way out. I'd like a Quarter Pounder Extra Value Meal - supersized, of course! - and a hot fudge sundae. Then maybe we'll hit the sushi restaurant on the way home.

Because I have no energy for training (or really doing anything more than sitting on the couch, watching MTV or the Top Chef finale), I have been knitting quite a bit. I've got both fronts and about half of the back done on my Equestrian Jacket from IK. Maybe wearing it in Austin 2 weeks from this Saturday isn't so much of an impossibility after all. (Sorry for not showing WIP photos. Pieces of knitting that are curled up because they haven't been blocked isn't terribly exciting to look at.)

While in the bathroom this morning (like you really wanted to know that), I overheard Matt Lauer talk about the release date of the last Harry Potter book, and he said something about Harry being naked on the cover. I dismissed his comment, but then I came across this:

Oh my! Look out, Hermoine!

Oh ew. Ew to your title, ew to the radcliffe skinny-yoked kid, ew to the colonoscopy. But ew in the good way, the squealy hawhaw way.

My mom just had a colonoscopy last month, that whole runup is awful. I guess it kind of makes the colonoscopy part of it a relief. Um, ew.

Your title - were you thinking of just the general saying or the line from the movie "Ghostworld"?

Good luck with your procedure.

sorry you have to put up with the scope today. I think you definitely deserve any kind of happy meal you could desire after all the stuff the put you through (or put through you as it were). Hope it all turns out well.

and when did Harry get so old? At least he's still pasty...

You're "too young" to have a colonoscopy--did I miss something?

My former roommate deals with UC and has to undergo them somewhat regularly. They aren't fun for either party (patient or physician).

I was just flipping through the blog list on Eunny Jang's site and when I saw the Ghostworld reference, I went wild.

Nice blog, too :)
