Day Thirtyfive...I'm cold

It's 6.54 pm. Its bloody cold! Tonights forecast is for a rain and snow flurry mixture. How lovely. Just what I want to drive to work experiencing before daylight in the morning..Bah!

No news on my end..Just another long tedious day. At least I only work half a day tomorrow. Hoorah! Then I'm off for my weekend.


Day Thirtyfive..I'm Late

It's 5.57 am. I overslept and now I'm running around like a chicken with its head cut off. Just thought I'd type a quick one before rushing out the door.

Have a pleasant Sunday.

Day Thirtyfour...Another Saturday Night

It's 7.43 pm. I've been home for about an hour and a few minutes. Work was blah as always. At least it was a slow day compared to yesterday. Nothing major but I did have to test my new skills that I supposedly learned in training last Monday. That ended up being a bit of a fiasco. I think some guy got a free upgrade when it was supposed to be chargeable. Oh well... Upgrades smupgrades Bah!

I'm still watching the Season 4 Doctor Who discs. The menu 'Darvos' voice scares me so much it's like a race for time to hit play or special features with my remote before he speaks, everytime I load a new disc. I would majorly crap myself if someone phoned me and as soon as I said hello they played that over the phone to me...'Your voice is different'...yikes!

There is a slight chill in the air and it's damp from earlier rain here in Aberdeen. I hope it doesn't rain all day tomorrow. It's fine as long as I don't have to go anywhere but driving in the rain blows chunks. I hate it.

2 days down 2 to go before my weekend. I haven't worked a full week in God knows when. Monday I will leave at 12.30 pm to go to the ear specialist so I suppose in a way I wont be doing a full week this week either. I'm just ready for it to be over. I tried to e-top 3 times today and each time it was denied. Bah! E-top is where you can ask to leave with nothing counted against you if the calls are slow and the service level is good. Everything looked good but the powers that be still said NO! I shall try again tomorrow and see how many times I get denied. hehe They haven't given me an e-top since the 4th of July.

I don't see anything new in David news. Just a few magazine articles coming out announcing the Christmas Doctor Who. Am I ready?? Oh yes I am!


Day Thirtyfour...No Comment

It's 5.52 am. I have to leave here in 8 minutes. Bah! Saturday and Sunday work is the worst. Waking up to the John Boy and Billy show blasting out of my clock radio is not the most pleasant way to wake up in the mornings. Not that we have much choice here. I think John Boy and Billy dominate the airwaves of morning radio across the southeast.

God, I'm sleepy! I need caffeine and I shall get it soon. Enjoy your Saturday's. I'm off...

Day Thirtythree...Bah! Nothing is Happening!

It's 8.29 pm. Nothing is happening anywhere. Google me this..Google me that..Google answers..where are you at???

David used a real skull during Hamlet. Ewwwwww...but kinda cool.
Elisabeth Sladen is just what the Doctor ordered..according to the Chicago Sun Times..Old news Chicago..bah!
Make the next Doctor a Woman..Double Bah! Who wants to look at women??? Not me nuh uh!!

I'm bored I'm bored I'm bored...Give me something to get excited over world!!

Lisa's in Oslo eating Sushi! How dare she!! Have fun Lisa!

If anyone wants to join me on Facebook....Here I am!

I'm going to bed...

Day Thirtythree..Horrid Horrid Day

It's 6.59 pm and I'm home from a horrid work day. Not a darn minute of it was slow. One call right after the other. Nothing but bother! Bah!

Received a text from Beate bright and early this morning. She had taken the 'top secret' driving test and she passed! Congrats Beate! People on the roads of Norway..Watch out!!! Beate's about...

Speaking of Beate. She almost caused me to run off the road while driving home from work just a while ago. Darn Texts!! Gotta read them!

Also received a phone call on the mobile from an Unknown Number. I usually don't answer if I don't know who it is. It was a female and she sounded British. I panicked and hung up. You never know who's calling. Hehe..So if you are British and you phoned me at about 6.04 pm cst and I hung up on you..So sorry! State your name and business from the get go and maybe I'll stick around on the line. Don't say..Yes, May I speak to Julia please? an all proper voice..It's scares me! Just start chatting...hehe

Well, I'm off to see what all I've missed during the day. Why, Why, Why must I have to work and miss out on what's going on in the world? I feel so alienated at work. Bah!

Love and kisses

Day Thirtythree...Black Friday

It's 5.37 am. I am slowly wobbling around the room trying to find something to wear to work. My eyes have not yet focused and I'm squinting at the pc monitor now. I hate getting up so early to go to work.

Today is the biggest shopping day of the year in America. I hope everyone goes shopping so my day will be slow. Stay away from your tv's America!

I don't suppose anything interesting has happened since I last blogged. At least nothing in my life did. I was asleep.

Well I've got to finish getting my shit together. See y'all later.

Day Thirtytwo..The Dreaded Night Before Going Back To Work

It's 7.25 pm. I have a load of clothes tumbling in the dryer and all is quiet on Sunny Lane.... other than the people leaving in and out from the mean neighbors from their Thanksgiving feast.

I ate supper over at Jackie and Freddie's. Homemade vegetable soup and corn bread. No turkey for me on this Thanksgiving Day.

Tomorrow is a work day and I dread the morning commute in to Tupelo. Traffic will be hectic due to it being Black Friday. The day after Thanksgiving all the shops open extra early with extreme sales to start of the Christmas buying season. Maybe it won't be too bad. Hopefully it will be a slow day at work.

Just wanted to check in before going to bed. Have a lovely weekend folks.


Day Thirtytwo..Ode to Rena

My Robbie friend Rena is a bit upset with my love for David Tennant so I'm blogging to let her know that I still love Robbie. My love for David does not diminish my love for Robbie. My heart is big and I may love several celebrities and non-celebrities at one time. They just swap out rankings in my love priority meter.

As Robbie isn't doing much at the moment..other than staring at the stars and wishing for alien abduction I've moved David up to the top of the priority meter. It works out very well for me...It makes me happy and I'm always entertained.

I apologize if I never warned you I was a 'in the closest' David Tennant Doctor Who fan. I am a geek. Have always been a geek and always will be. I'm out and proud baby! Most important though...I am still the same Jules..I still have the same warped sense of humour and that will never change.

So to all my Robbie friends...especially Rena...I love you, I love Robbie, but I also love David Tennant. I miss the old days over at Pure Robbie. I miss our chats and the silliness of it all but those days are over. PR is not the same. We all know it's not a happy place anymore.

I hope we will always be friends.


Day Thirtytwo...Doctor Who Season 4 DVD's

I've got the Season 4 DVD's now. How spooky is that menu audio??? I may just have nightmares...Is it Davros??
How funny is the car trip to Blackpool on David's video diaries?? ...and bless the little boy getting off the elevator when he sees David.
Still loads to watch on these discs...I've just been scanning so far.
Oh I'm gonna miss you David Tennant!

Day Thirtytwo..Happy Thanksgiving!

It's 8.06 am...It's cold...and it's Thanksgiving here in the United States. So that means Americans will be gorging themselves with turkey and watching football on tv. I have been invited to the neighbor's for soup.

So as my family tradition goes I should list out the things I'm thankful for....
1. That my mom and dad are still both alive and care about me so much.
2. That I have a wonderful pup named Rex that provides me with happiness each day.
3. That I have fantastic neighbor's..Jackie and Freddie who think of me as their own.
4. That I have a job.
5. That I have 5 more David Tennant Doctor Who epidodes before he off's himself.
6. That I have friends online and off.

That's all I can think of right now.

So for Americans..Have a good Thanksgiving! For the rest of the world.. Enjoy your Thursday and.... 7. I'm thankful that you all are apart of my world.

Day Thirtyone...The Town I Grew Up In

Passage from THE QUIET GAME by Greg Iles

"Natchez is unlike any place in America, existing almost outside of time,... In some ways it isn't part of Mississippi at all. There's no town square with a lone Confederate soldier presiding over it or provincial blue laws. The oldest city on the Mississippi River, Natchez stands white and pristine atop a two-hundred-foot loess bluff, the jewel in the crown of nineteenth-century steamboat ports. ... After being ruled in turn by Indians, French, British, Spanish, Confederates, and Americans, her character is more cosmopolitan than cities ten times her size. Parts of New Orleans remind me of Natchez, but only parts... Two hundred miles upriver, Natchez exists in a ripple of time that somehow eludes ... the present."

Natchez, Mississippi will always be my hometown. It will always hold a special place in my heart. I'm proud to be a Natchezian and to have been raised in its environment and enriched by its people.

If you ever visit the southern United States make Natchez a stop on your journey. You won't regret it. It's just too bad that unless you are rich from an inheritance or old money then you must leave Natchez to find work. Some of my fondest memories are from my youth in Natchez.

Day Thirtyone..Everything's David David David

So I thought I'd throw in a bit of John 'Capt. Jack' Barrowman. He's hot and he loves dogs! The love of animals says a lot about a person in my opinion. He's a patron of the Dog's Trust in the UK and takes his dogs with him just about everywhere he goes. John is a caring, wonderful person who should be applauded for his work. Here's to John Barrowman..God Bless You!

Support your local shelters if you can. Even if you can't adopt these shelters are always in need of food, blankets, newspapers, volunteers, and so much more. Money is appreciated also but there are so many options to help out these poor animals that just want to be loved.

In 2004 I got my own bundle of love from a local shelter. Since then he has been the best friend I could ever have. Rex is a half labrador retriever/half cocker spaniel. He looks more like a lab but the cocker shines through in his eyes and short nubby tail. He's my 4 legged, hairy, son. My gift from God. He makes me a better person and gives me a reason to get out of bed every day. In many ways he's saved my life.

When I lost my job of 9 years in 2006 due to cutbacks and new management, Rex consoled me as I went into a deep depression. The job situation in Mississippi at the time was next to nothing. I was out of work for over a year. My parents helped support me and Bless them for that. I would never have made it without them but they were 300 miles away in Louisiana. Rex was my constant companion. I would just have to look into his eyes and I knew I had to make it. If not for my sake for his.

If you are shopping for a puppy please give the shelter deep consideration before buying from a breeder. Not all breeders are bad but a lot of them are puppy mills where the breeder dogs are kept in terrible conditions. They are never shown love. They exist for one purpose only and that is to produce pups that will sell. Do your homework on who you buy from before making any decisions. Just remember a mutt is just as lovable as a pure bred.

Day Thirtyone..Elmo Laughter

Just because it made me laugh. Watch the dog.

Day Thirtyone..Has David Tennant Ever Been Hotter?

It's 11.53 am. I've done nothing productive at all. Hoorah for me! I am the laziest person alive!

I've just been surfing the internet. It looks like David Tennant is on top of his game at the moment. Everyone wants a piece of him.

Hamlet will start soon in London and then back to filming Who specials I suppose. What's next? I would imagine the world is wide open for David Tennant at this moment. He can pick and choose whatever he wants to do.

As much as I would love David over here in America I really hope he does not choose the Hollywood option. I don't think he will but who knows? I just don't feel that Hollywood is good enough for him. It's too fake.

I'm really looking forward to the Christmas Who Special. Not long now!

Day Thirtyone...A Driving Instruction Blog for Beate

Beate is taking driving lessons. Well she has finished now and she's keeping the date of her test top secret.
This video is for her. David Tennant would make the ultimate driving instructor. It's from the movie Learners. Good Luck Beate!

Day Thirtyone...Happy Birthday Dad

It's 8.19 am and its cold. Today is my dad's 80th birthday! Happy Birthday you old mean codger! I love him but he is a bit mean at times. I know he loves me but he is the type that criticizes constantly and its always bad. He can find no good in me what so ever. Bah! I'm just one big disappointment to him. I gave up years ago trying to please him. Nothing ever does. Granted he gave me a good life growing up and I know I can count on him if I need him. Just wish he'd learn to encourage instead of putting down all the time. Guess I should pick up the phone and give him a call and tell him Happy Birthday now...brb

Happy Birthday phone call to dad is now complete. He seemed in a rather jovial mood this morning. Talked to mom too and she was doing well.. God bless mom and dad! Dad is a bit miffed because I didn't come down to Louisiana for Thanksgiving to be with them. I just didn't feel like driving 5 hours each way this year. I'll go at Christmas.

As soon as I hung the phone up it started ringing. It was Angela with the Ear, Nose, and Throat Specialist Group in Tupelo confirming my appointment for Monday at 1.10 pm. She just wanted to remind me to bring a list of meds I'm taking and my insurance card. Of course they love insurance...Money grubbing medical farce!

Anyway..Good Morning World! I am now awake and waiting for you to amuse me. Have a good Wednesday...

Day Thirty...Invasion

It's 6.20 pm and all's well. I had a lovely nap this afternoon only to return to see many hits all coming from The Doctor Who Forum. Wow...I hope you guys aren't talking bad about me over there...but you are quite welcome here. It's just hard to fathom people reading my drivel.

Day Thirty..David Tennant at The Evening Standard Theatre Awards

David was at The Evening Standard Theatre Awards last night. Here's a youtube clip from the BBC. Notice they put up Neil Tennant Actor as his name instead of David Tennant...hehe..WTF!

Day Thirty...Killer Bees

It's 10.14 am. I slept late this morning and enjoyed it.

I've been blogging every day for about a month now. I wonder how long I can do it? Just want to say thanks to my friends Lisa and Beate for putting up with all my David Tennant rambles and faithfully checking my blog every day regardless of the content. Love ya both! xx

Also want to say hello to all the strangers out there who've somehow found my blog in the last week or so. I'm glad to see there are quite a few hits here in the States. Good to see David fans are everywhere.

Well, I'm still a bit groggy and Beate's on msn so I'll blog later..

Happy Tuesday

Day Twentynine..Einstein and Eddington Watched!

It's 8.01 pm. I have just finished watching Einstein and Eddington. Wow! What a brilliant piece of work. I must say I had my doubts before watching it. I thought it would be total science and I would be bored but I was touched with laughter and sadness.

David was amazing as always. Crying over his friends death while standing by the tree got to me. I was in tears too. Andy Serkis' portrayal of Einstein was fantastic, quirky, insane and loveable.

Anyway, this movie gave me a great respect for a man hardly anyone has heard of..Arthur Stanley Eddington...I salute you.


Day Twentynine..I had a Fantastic Work Day!

It's 6.53 pm and my work day is over! Hoorah! and I had a smurfy day all around.

Got to work and opened up my schedule for the day and saw that I had training from 7 am until 1 pm. Woohoohoo! Training is just learning new things to improve your job skills. So basically I got to sit in a classroom and chat with my classmates for 6 hours with numerous breaks in between. Anything beats answering the rude Americans. Yes, I'm American but that doesn't mean that I enjoy the attitudes of the majority of my people.

Then from 1 pm until 1.30 pm I had lunch. Then from 1.30 pm until 2.30 pm I had coaching. So I only actually had to work from 2.30 pm until 5.30 pm. Regardless, the day went by really fast and now I'm off officially until Friday.

Now I'm going to watch the rest of Einstein and Eddington. Be back to blog later.

Y'all take it easy now ya hear!

Day Twentynine..Sleepy Monday

It's 5.30 am and I'm so very sleepy. I've just made myself get out of bed. Just need to survive today and I'll be good 'til Friday. I stayed up way past my bedtime last night watching what I could of Einstein and Eddington. I only got to see a little over half of it before I could resist sleep no longer. Will watch the remainder tonight.

So far I'm loving it. What a great performance by David Tennant and Andy Serkis. I love how Eddington stands up for what he believes in. I was so upset when Eddington couldn't say goodbye to his friend at the train station. Bah! He gave that bike hell trying though. Anyway I will give my full review once I can watch it in its entirety.

I must get dressed and go to work now. I hate Mondays even though they are my Fridays. They still feel like a Monday. Bah!

Happy Thanksgiving Week to my fellow Americans! If your satellite tv goes out don't call me! Take a walk..Read a book..Have a Nap...Anything but call me! Thank you!


Sunday, November 23, 2008

Day Twentyeight...Dark skies and Snow Clouds

It's 6.51 pm and I'm home after a full day of work! I made it! My ear still feels clogged but I survived the silly mean Americans who think that they will die without satellite tv.

I'm amazed at how much traffic my meaningless blog is getting over the past few days. Of course you are all welcome here. It's just weird seeing all the hits. Mr. Tennant you are a popular boy! Feel free to join, leave comments or shout at me in the shoutbox. I would enjoy meeting other David Tennant fans. The more the merrier.

I still haven't seen Einstein and Eddington. Give me a few hours and that will change ;). So expect my mundane thoughts on it soon. You guys in the UK get the best tv. American tv blows. We just steal all the UK programmes Americanize them and ruin them. Bah!

Hope you all are doing well and I'll blog more soon.


Day Twentyeight..It's Just Another Day

It's 4.50 am. I'm not cold for a change. Which is a good thing. I seem to be feeling somewhat better at the moment albeit sleepy.

I hope all of you in the UK enjoyed Einstein and Eddington. I can't wait to see it. From all I've read it seems to be fantastic. Maybe something will show up today. Maybe not. If you've seen it leave a comment of your views on it. I like spoilers.

Some guy made a slip up on some BBC news program and said that Patterson Joseph is going to be the new Doctor in Doctor Who. I dont know who he is. I've just seen a photograph. Only time will tell. It's on youtube but I cant be bothered looking for it this early. I'm 99% sure I wont be watching once David Tennant leaves anyway. I just don't think anyone can replace David. I've never been a Who fan anyway. Just happened to watch one with David and it went from there.

I hope Beate is feeling ok after her wild work Christmas party last night. Beate phoned me up from Norway at about 3 am something their time and all I could hear was Robbie Williams singing Let Me Entertain You and a bunch of drunk Norwegian girls singing along. I thought perhaps she had accidentally dialed my mobile so I just hung up. I had been saying Hello? Hello? only to get no answer. Come to find out that is what she meant to do. How nice. hehe.

Well I'm about to get ready to go to work. I think I might make it today even though I don't want to. Text me to keep me amused if you have my mobile number.

Happy Sunday!

Day Twentyseven..Emergency Room Part Duex

Well so much for working today! It's 9.56 am. I attempted to get out and about but the whole side of my head is numb and my jaw hurts when I open my mouth. So back to the doctor. The eardrum is healing like it should but the infection moved to my jaw.
So more meds for that. What's gonna get infected next? I'm sick of being sick.

Anyway, here's to getting well! Maybe I will one day. I've never been to the doctor so much in my life. Getting old sux!

Waiting for Einstein and Eddington now. Fun!


Day Twentyseven...Einstein and Eddington with David Tennant on Tonight!

It's 4.54 am. I went to bed shortly after 7 pm simply because I was bored and I was cold so I'm up extra early. I've already showered and dressed and I suppose I will attempt a day at work. Bah! It's 21 F here now so -6 C. This should not be allowed in Mississippi. I thought there was a law forbidding it!

Einstein and Eddington will be on tv in the UK tonight! woohoohoo! or as Beate would say tohoohoo! I am so looking forward to some new David stuff. Hope it will be attainable by the time I get home tonight. Don't worry I'll buy the dvd when it comes out. I'm just not a patient person. Just hope it's not all sciencey cause I might not understand all that rigmarole. I'm sure I will enjoy it immensely no matter what.
I'll blog my thoughts after viewing it here.

Bah! I need some gloves. My fingers are gonna fall off in this weather. I do however have a new wooley cap to wear upon my noggin making me look like short chubby elf with all the layers of clothing I've decided to put on this morning. How special am I?

I'm about to attempt a quick run outside to start my car and let it run while I wait inside for it to get warm. So much for Global Warming...Jules is Cold!!! BRB...

Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr, I made it! Ice is all over the windshield and the door of the car was hard to open. The car is running and should be toasty warm by the time I get in it.

I'm way ahead of schedule this morning. Will leave this blog here and surf around the net for a bit before I leave. Hope you all have a wonderful Saturday.

Love you all..

Day Twentysix..David Tennant-BBC Radio 4

Nice interview on Radio 4. All serious and to the point. Think it was recorded earlier than when it was aired but that's ok.

It's been a wonderful day of David Radio Interviews. Looking forward to seeing Einstein and Eddington tomorrow night.


Day Twentysix..David Tennant-BBC Radio One
David is bouncy today. All over the place. Seems he stopped by Radio One as well. Here's a link for those who are googling and finding my crazy blog instead of David Tennant. hehe. It's about 40 mins in on the Edith Bowman show and he's quite witty.

Day Twentysix..David Tennant Absolute Radio Link

They have the edited interview up on absolute radio site for anyone who is interested. It's DIAPHRAGMTASTIC!

Poor Guy is very very skinny! Looks like I'm gonna have to send my mom to the UK to cook for him.

Now its the wait for the Radio 4 interview this evening. Guess I should tune in now in case Mr. Earlybird Tennant decides to arrive way ahead of schedule! Bah! It's a David Day Hoorah!


Day Twentysix...David Tennant/Absolute Radio

It's 3.53 am. I arrived at my pc at 2.56 and switched on all the proper links only to find out that David was already there and gabbing away! How dare he get there early!!! It clearly states 9 am. Oh well. I caught the majority of the interview and saw bits of him on webcam 3.

They asked him to solve some maths problem which I think he cheated on. (See pic above) He was asked about his love life and got a curt yeah out of him. Giving out no secrets. He drank what appeared to be loads of coffee and played with his iphone. Other than that I didn't get much out of it. It was 3am for christs sake! I'll have a proper listen later.

Am I going to work today? Doubtful. I haven't slept much at all. Will let you all know in an hour or so.


Thursday, November 20, 2008

Day Twentyfive..The Eardrum Saga Continues

It's 2.34 pm. My ear is still clogged. I phoned the ear specialist, Doctor Ryan Simmons, to make an appointment like I was instructed and the first appointment available is Monday the 1st of December. Bah! Guess I will have to wait it out.

All is still uneventful here. I am bored. It's warmed up but tonight is forecast cold cold cold! I'll be getting my insulated underwear out to sleep in. Bah!

Tomorrow is my Monday...first day back at work. I'm already thinking of calling in sick. Blasted ear and the way it makes me feel. No energy what so ever. I'll see how I feel at 3 am when I get up to listen to David.


Day Twentyfive..Too Early to Think of a Title

It's 9.47 am. Still cold. Supposed to get down below 0 c tonight. Lovely! Bah!

Had some really crazy dreams last night. Vacationing in Florida, rubbish bins, sticks, and trying to hold about a dozen black lab puppies at one time. I don't think my mind can get any more warped. I just wake up with a puzzled look on my face. WTF!

Guess I'll be setting my alarm for 2.50 am in the morning so I can listen to The Christian O'Connell Breakfast Show with David Tennant. That's really sad isn't it? I'm sure someone will download it or it will be available for download on the Absolute radio site but I feel the need to be there as it happens. I'll just be getting up 2.5 hours earlier than usual.

I guess I need to make some David fan friends but I'm not doing a very good job of it. I just don't seem to have anything to say like over on his forum. They all have their little groups and I just don't see any where I fit in. They are all 'enthusiastic' as David would say but I just can't post.

That's enough for a morning post. Maybe something interesting will happen today and I will have something to report. Until then...

Bundle up and turn against the wind.

Day Twentyfour..Sleeping My Life Away

It's 7.05 pm. Still cold. Ate over at the neighbors for lunch and supper today. Ear feels completely stopped up. In fact the whole left side of my head feels a bit numb. Bah! Just my luck.

David Tennant will be on some radio shows in the UK this Friday. Told you he wouldn't stop for long. Silly plum..he needs to have a nice holiday but that's what he enjoys so more power to him. I hope someone downloads both interviews so I can hear them once I get home. I'm sure someone will. I was born on the wrong side of the Atlantic. Nothing over here interests me at all. Thanks to the power of the internet I do not have to wait long for anything.

9.00am on Friday, 21 November 2008
10.00am on Friday, 21 November 2008
on Christian O'Connell Breakfast Show


From Doctor Who to Shakespeare to our Breakfast Show Panto, there seems to be nothing that phases actor David Tennant! He pops into the Breakfast Show to say hello.

Guess I could get up at 3 am here and listen. Bah!

I think I've just about got everything I wanted loaded back on my pc and I've done backups this time! hoorah! I was stupid for not doing any last time.

All I want to do is sleep ever since my ear started bothering me. I don't know if I should sleep or try to stay awake. I just know I want to sleep and I think I'm going to get back in bed in a few minutes. Maybe read for awhile.

Cy'all tomorrow.


Day Twentyfour...Capt. BigHead Says Hello

It's 10.09. It's cold. I don't like it and I'm grumpy. I need to shower. I need to try to eat. I need to do loads of things but it's too freakin' cold!!!

Downloaded Motorola Phone Tools yesterday so now I can load and unload files from my messed up phone. The one above is Capt. BigHead Rexy in the passenger seat of my car waiting for me to put it in reverse and take him for a car ride. He loves car rides.

I've been chatting with Beate on msn again. She's sick now and all pukey. Guess my germs are powerful enough to travel through cyberspace. hehe.. I'm good.

I notice I've picked up a bit of traffic on my blog. Don't be a stranger comment and say hello. I don't bite...hard

Cyall later

Day Twentythree...All's Not Well

It's 6.09 pm and it's colder here in Aberdeen, Mississippi than it is in London UK at this exact moment. What is going on with the world?? That just doesn't seem right does it?

I don't know whats going on with me lately. I have no energy. I feel blah all the time. I know my ear is messed up but last night I started throwing up everything I have eaten. Maybe its the meds I'm taking for my ear. Maybe I'll lose weight. There's got to be a positive in all this negative.

Hope David Tennant is enjoying his break before resuming Hamlet in London next month. Knowing him he's probably not stopped once to rest. I guess that's what I admire about him. I wish I just had half his energy.


Day Twentythree..This Brought a Tear to my Eye

This just arrived in my email and I felt like sharing it.

Please read before viewing picture - it's worth it!

A picture began circulating in November. It should be 'The Picture of the Year,' or perhaps, 'Picture of the Decade.' It won't be. In fact, unless you obtained a copy of the US paper which published it, you probably would never have seen it.

The picture is that of a 21-week-old unborn baby named Samuel Alexander Armas, who is being operated on by surgeon named Dr. Joseph Bruner.

The baby was diagnosed with spina bifida and would not survive if removed from his mother's womb. Little Samuel's mother, Julie Armas, is an obstetrics nurse in Atlanta . She knew of Dr. Bruner's remarkable surgical procedure. Practicing at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, he performs these special operations while the baby is still in the womb.

During the procedure, the doctor removes the uterus via C-section and makes a small incision to operate on the baby. As Dr. Bruner completed the surgery on Samuel, the little guy reached his tiny, but fully developed hand through the incision and firmly grasped the surgeon's finger. Dr. Bruner was reported as saying that when his finger was grasped, it was the most emotional moment of his life, and that for an instant during the procedure he was just frozen, totally immobile.

The photograph captures this amazing event with perfect clarity. The editors titled the picture, 'Hand of Hope.' The text explaining the picture begins, 'The tiny hand of 21-week-old fetus Samuel Alexander Armas emerges from the mother's uterus to grasp the finger of Dr. Joseph Bruner as if thanking the doctor for the gift of life.'

Little Samuel's mother said they 'wept for days' when they saw the picture. She said, 'The photo reminds us that pregnancy isn't about disability or an illness, it's about a little person.' Samuel was born in perfect health, the operation 100 percent successful.

Now see the actual picture, and it is awesome... incredible... and hey, pass it on. The world needs to see this one!

Day Twentythree..Shuffling Sideways

Good Morning Everyone. 8.07 am here and it's colder than a witch's tit. 32 F right now which is 0 C. Brrrrrrrrrrrr.

I had a horrible dream last night. Beate, I'm mad at you. I dreamt that Beate was in London and met David and somehow she ended up with his phone number butttttttttttt. Beate wouldn't give it to me even though I swore to never use it. I was furious. Kudos to Beate for being so loyal to her new friend but dammit...I am a pretty darn good loyal type friend myself. Bah! Glad it was just a dream. Even if I had David's number I couldn't call it. WTF would I say? Hi David, I'm Julia, you don't know me but just thought I'd call. I'm sure that would go over well don't you think? hehe. I'm much to shy. Don't have it in me even if I am brave in my dreams. I tend to make a fool out of myself by accident...never on purpose...welllll, almost never.

Other than that I slept well. It's kind of fun having teenagey angst like dreams again. hehe. I hope it has something to do with the medication I'm on instead of me just resorting back to childhood. Nothing planned for today. Guess I still need to rest and let the ear heal. I've still have a ways to go before its back to normal. Don't need to be out with the wind hitting it. So you all will have to suffer with me and my meaningless rambles today.

Day Twentytwo...Off again..hehe

It's 9.32 pm. I've been watching I'm a Celeb. Not very happy with this years crew. Maybe they will grow on me?? Who knows? Ant and Dec are always fun though. :)

I'm cold. The heatings on but I keep getting the shivers. I really hate winter. Bah! My ear is still stopped up. I'm still medicating myself and perhaps I will be healthy again one day.

I survived another full day of work but now I'm off again. It's now my official days off. Hoorah!

I'm starting to get a bit sleepy. Nothing of any amusement or interest happened today. So this is just an update blog which is quite boring. I've started the damn thing and I intend on carrying on with it.

Rex found his devil bear sometime today while I was at work and has carried it in his mouth everywhere since I've been home. Even out to do his doggy business. It's really quite cute. I thought he had outgrown his toys but I guess not. Maybe he just needed something to cuddle while I was gone. awwwww..Bless Rexy..

Well, I'm yawning and I'm a Celeb is not capturing my full attention. I just wanna go to bed. Talk to you all tomorrow you plums...


Day Twentytwo..Good Morning Campers!

It's 5.14 am. I've been awake since about 4 am but just stayed in bed. It's cold but now I'm up and about to have a shower and get ready for work.

My ear feels somewhat less clogged this morning. We shall see how it is once I get moving around.

I've been reading David Tennant-A Life in Time in Space. Bah! The author of this should be ashamed. It's like an essay you have to write in school and it has to be so many words so you fill it with tons of fluff just to make up the wordage. Take away all the fluff and you have maybe 10 pages of David content. Bah! Reminds me of my senior term paper on John Milton's Paradise Lost. I think I talked about the Devil alot. hehe Maybe bits from The Omen...Geez, that Damien was a bad boy. He needed supernanny for sure. Get on the naughty step Damien!

I now know more about Daleks than I ever intended. Daleks amuse me. They have a toilet plunger for one arm and a mixer for the other. So in my opinion the Dalek's are simply 'shit stirrers'. EXTERMINATE! EXTERMINATE! THE DOCTOR DID NOT FLUSH HIS POO! EXPLAIN! EXPLAIN! hehe...

It's Monday so that means its my Friday. If I can survive the 10 hour shift today I will be free for another 3 days. Lovely. Guess I need to make an appointment with the ear specialist and make sure my ear gets better instead of putting it off.

I'm off to shower now. Hope everyone enjoys their Monday.

Day Twentyone...Looks Like I Made It!

It's 6.58 pm. I managed to survive a full day of work. Not that I was too smurfily pleased about it but I stuck it out.

First calls of the day were from bitchy women who enjoyed using the phrase..Let Me Tell You Something, Missy!. Pardon me bitchy woman...I don't care! but I have to be nice to you even though my ear is clogged up and you are making me nauseous. Bah!

The evening went by fairly well with just a few threats of canceling service or whinging about blacked out football games. The only really annoying part was having to look at squinchy eyed lover boy hovering over his girlfriend who sits across from me. He stands over her staring at her all lovey dovey and every once in awhile he strokes her hair and I just want to vomit. Go away Squinchy Eyed I'm in Love Boy!! Let the poor girl work.

Then we have Princess Twinkle Toes. It's a guy but he wears flip flops everyday. It's blooming freakidy cold now and Princess Twinkle Toes comes floping by me everyday. This guy is about 5 ft tall, his pants hang off his arse, and other than being pigeon toed he has the most perfectly shaped feminine looking feet I've ever seen..Thus Princess Twinkle Toes...Put some shoes on PTT!!

Well, my ear is a clog fest and I don't reckon I'll be hearing in stereo today. Bah! I've taken my meds and I'll be off to beddy bye soon.

Hope to see you all later...

Day Twentyone...Full Day of Work?

It's 5.46 am. I'm going to attempt to make a full day at work. Will I do it? Place your bets here...hehe..

Had crazy dreams all night long. All about being in long ques. What I was waiting for I'll never know but I did make new friends during the wait.

Hope everyone enjoys their peaceful Sunday. I hope the phone lines go down and no one can bother me but that's too much to wish for.

Guess I'll finish getting ready and go. I'm feeling ok right now but my left ear is completely stopped up. I guess it takes awhile to heal. Bah!

Miss y'all already..

Day Twenty...Stereo Surround Sound

It's 12.40 pm. My ear made a soft popping noise a few minutes ago and all of a sudden I can hear in stereo again. Hoorah! Never realized how boring mono is...And maybe that's a good sign that the bad ear is healing correctly. :)

Tonight are David's last performances of Hamlet and Love's Labour's Lost in Stratford-upon-Avon. :( Hamlet will move to London next and I will have been absent throughout it all. :( Bah! to living in America and being poor!

I've thought about buying some Shakespeare and reading it again. Not that I read it and comprehended it in high-school...Dunno, if I could actually absorb it 20 years later any better than I did then. I used what we call in America, Cliff's Notes. Nice little summaries of all the key events, plots, etc. all shoved into a small pamphlet like yellow paperback book. I somehow managed to pass. We did Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet, Julius Ceasar and I'm sure there were others.

I was a teenager and thought I was in love with a guy named Chris at the time so Shakespeare was the last thing on my mind at that moment. We did have to memorize parts of the plays..I think I would write it on my hand or side of my shoe or something just to help me along. I can remember part of Julius Ceasar til today. That Friends, Romans, Countrymen..bit...God, I hated standing in front of the class and reciting that stuff. I'd do just about anything to get out of it. I took a grade lower once so I could stay after school and do it one on one with the teacher instead of in front of the class. I opened the book to the page and placed it strategically under the podium and would recite what I could remember and then look down as if in thought to get the next line..hehe..Then promptly closed the book using my foot after and I got away with it. Hoorah for cheating!!

Anyway, I am feeling better. Hope I still have a job. Will talk to you all later.


Day Twenty..Wind in the Willows

It's 5.12 am. I've been up since 4.30 am but I guess that's to be expected. I fell asleep shortly after 8 pm last night. My ear is a bit itchy this morning but not burning. I slept rather well for a change. The pain pills knocked me out. I'm not used to taking anything. I'm thinking maybe I should have just took half of one cause it made me a bit drunk and caused me to slur my words even worse than with the normal southern accent. hehe.

It's a bit chilly here this morning. The wind is blowing hard and the branches on the willow trees behind my house are rustling loudly. I don't think there is any rain in the forecast.. just wind. I'm home for another day to let the ear heal and I'm not allowed to drive on these meds. So it looks like another day of napping and lying around in my jim jams watching the world go by.

My old friend Ronnie called me out of the blue yesterday. We had a laugh and he said he would install msn messenger on his pc. I'll believe it when I see it. We worked together for years and became close buddies. I miss those days sometimes. Not the job just the good times laughing at the absurd things surrounding us. We need to get in touch with our other buddy Becky. She's in Arkansas now. Every one moves on and we lose touch. Sad.. :(

Well, It's time to medicate my ear..:( Will be back later.

Day Nineteen..The Next Doctor :)

I am high as a kite but the preview for The Next Doctor is now on YouTube. 'Citing! I cant wait!!! Roll on December 25th!!

Day Nineteen...Home Again. Emergency Room Visit

It's 11.35 am and I'm at home. About 20 minutes after I started work this morning my ear drum burst. I should have gone on to the doctor the other day.

My left ear is infected badly and the infection in the inner ear caused my ear drum to swell and to tear. I had to go to the emergency room and have it cleaned out and probed and prodded. The pain is better now but I thought my head was gonna explode. I have two different sets of ear drops to put in it now. Something for cleansing, something that has antibiotics and pain meds in it and also some pain pills. Ahhhh Loratabs. I've taken one already and I'm starting to feel the numbing effects and also feel a bit nauseous but I will survive. That's what I get for avoiding Doctors like the plague.

I have to make an appointment to see an ear specialist next week to see if it is healing correctly and if anything further needs to be done. More than likely I will lose 10% of the hearing in that ear. Bah!

I have been ordered to stay at home today and tomorrow from work due to the medication they have put me on.

Anyway, Rex was excited I was home so soon and greeted me at the door wiggling all over. I love my boy! He's the best pup in the world.

The sun has finally decided to shine brightly after immense fog this morning. You could barely see 10 feet in front of you.

Well, now I can rest, The doctor said that the infection in my ear is probably why I haven't been able to sleep well lately. Now I can relax and wait for a torrent of Children in Need tonight. A preview of 'The Next Doctor' is just what I need to make me feel better.
