Running with Scissors

I went and saw this movie this weekend. I read the book about a month ago. I was a bit disappointed in the movie although I don't know why. I guess because they changed it some. I don't know. The book was depressing to me, I wonder how this man could have survived such a childhood and still be sane. It made me appreciate my normal boring parents and my stable childhood. The movie isn't bad at all, its quite good but something was just a bit off. For me.

I did something this weekend I have never done before, I got a pedicure! It was WONDERFUL. I see many more pedicures in my future. I had them put glitter polish over a dusky pink polish and my toes are glittery and pretty! Well, as pretty as toes can be anyway. Its a shame summer is gone, I think everyone I meet should see my toes right now LOL!!

I get my biopsy results tomorrow...I am very nervous.

I read this book as well and laughed my butt off.

I think I tried to think of it as fiction but I knew that it was fact. It always seemed like he made the best of his life and made it work for him.

I don't think I can see the movie it might take away from the book for me.

saying prayers for the biopsy results.......

I haven't seen/read either the movie or the book, but I do know that normal happy stable childhoods (like mine) are always somewhat under-rated. Me, I'm rather relieved I had one.

For a while I was getting pedicures weekly, then I sort of lost the rhythm of it, and now I always forget to go. Your enthusiasm might just get me there again though. I don't know about the glitter, but the dusky pink sounds great!

You are definitely in my prayers regarding your biopsy. It sure took them long enough!

Mel, I'm thinking you were delayed because there was no rush...know what I mean?

If there were something seriously wrong, it would be incredibly irresponsible for the doctor to make you wait for weeks and weeks for results.

Honestly, I hope I'm not just being overly optimistic, but I believe the doctor would pretty much be breaking his hippocratic (I like to call it hypocritic) oath, to not report something seriously wrong within a rather short (and urgent) period of time.

So the good news is, you should be fine. The bad news is, what do I know? :)

I saw that movie the day after my cat was murdered and of course 20 minutes in there is a dead cat scene! Other than that I laughed my ass off. I guess you had a better childhood than him or me in fact I could relate to the Me me bullshit spewed forth by the "adults" in the picture. I went through similiar things too. Therapy is helping me so much now! LOL Picutres of the toes sis! I am hooked on pedicures myself and have one at least every month. This last time I was withourt for 6 weeks. I told the nail lady I had a reverse fench pedicure!
