|Watercolor Study of Erin; I see a budding Lolita in her expression.|
At the crack of dawn I was off to get an endoscopy of my upper digestive tract; an hour and a half later, I got home. My esophagus was the best 71 year old esophagus, the doctor had ever seen. I should have been a gastroenterologist. All the chairs in the waiting room were filled. All the beds in the clinic were filled. He was knocking EG whatevers out of the ball park. Now, I'm just a bit hung over from the fabulous drugs. I asked the anesthesiologist to ask me about my ring while I was out, but he thought I was joking. And I wasn't out long enough to find out myself. Damn. Now I'm restricted to laying around all day, not making any serious decisions or driving heavy machinery (just when the back forty needs mowing)
What else does one do when restricted? I surf the net. I checked in here first and lo and behold find Konstantina awarded me the Liebster blog award! Just in time to lift my spirits. She's a sweetheart.
This award doesn't come without responsibilities however. I have to pay my admiration forward to five other blogs with less than 200 followers that I consider fantastic and very worthy and they have to do the same, but not if they don't feel like it. I feel like it.
It would be my pleasure to honor: 1) Art By Roger 2) Gatepost Pictures; 3) Jean's Paintings; 4) Sharon Wright Artist; 5) Kathryn Ragan. Congratulations blog buddies. You all do inspirational work and are always encouraging.
And now the sticky part of accepting this award: I have to tell you five personal things that you don't know. This is a tough one; I'm a pretty open book... okay: 1) I've never put gas in my car; 2) I don't read newspapers; 3) I play Sudoku first thing in the morning on the commode; 4) I repaint my front door Chinese red, after the painter for the condo association paints it somebody else's horrible idea of mauve; and 5) I don't drive an American car because their windows aren't big enough and my peripheral vision is limited.
ADDENDUM: Sorry guys, I got all the links wrong, not just Roger's. I must still have been under the influence of the anesthetic or putting the links in in HTML mode wasn't a good way to do it? (that's how I did).
