I Know, I Know, I Know, Should Have Listened When I Was Told

Today is the first day in five days that I have been able to sit upright for more than five minutes. Which feels awesome.

I finally went to the doctor yesterday and surprise! I have pneumonia. Lovely.

I got an I.V. bag of nutrients and a ass-load of medical tests done (added bonus: not covered by insurance because it was my alternative doctor's office) and Monday the results will be in.

The big question is How The Fuck Will They Treat Me since I'm allergic to every fucking antibiotic available (Pennicillin, Clarithromycin, Ciprofloxacin, Azithromycin). And you thought it was just food allergies over here. Hell to tha no.

Just a little something we like to call And Capello Shoves it in the Face of Modern Medical Science, Suck on that Fuckertards.

Thank you for all the "get well" wishes. I really appreciate them.

The last time we peeked into the lego calender was on day eleven with a rail-road crossing barrier. Which brings us to...

Day Twelve
A handcar. Very important to the festivus holidays.

Day Thirteen
Jimmy Joe is here to clean up after the holiday festivities. He takes great pride in his work and keeps his favorite broom in impeccable shape and keeps it with him at all times.

Day Fourteen
Sometimes a broom just isn't enough for Jimmy Joe. He often needs the help of a trash receptacle and shovel to clean the dirties of jobs. The pick axe is so no one fucks with him (and you thought that was an innocent smile on his face, didn't you?).

Day Fifteen
A garden kiosk. Thrown in to the advent calendar to satisfy the little girls particpating (pretty flowers, pretty flowers).

Day Sixteen
Officer Marshal is pissed off at you. Yes, you. How dare you make fun of his advent calender? Lego went to great strides to make a kick-ass advent calendar complete with a focus group of nine year old boys with fauxhawks and Goddamnit, this advent calendar rocks. And if you don't agree, he may very well arrest you.

Glad to see you're feeling a little better. Missed the daily infusion of Lego Advent Madness.
Still wondering what message they are trying to send our small children with the happy janitor and angry police officer. hmm... And where are all the women??

omgoodness! I certainly hope they find something to clear you up!

I'm loving the advent callender so much! I love your interpretaion of everything. I am going to look for one for next year! It looks like too much fun!

ugh - so sorry to hear about the pneumonia! That just sucks...

Schecky came in to peep over my shoulder as I was reading - he was very excited to see that "his" lego calendar was featured. He then got all cranky and it took me a minute to figure out what was up...
He was hoping that you were going to "let him see into the future"...

Oh - and you're way smarter than me. I thought the flower kiosk was a pretty ATM...

Pneumonia? That sucks! Sorry about that. My sister-in-law is also allergic to various antibiotics (the last one she tried closed her throat up), so they had to just give her the antibiotics along with a ton of steroids. It wasn't pretty. So, um, yeah -- happy holidays!

YUCK! Sorry about the ultra sickness. Why mess around with a lazy old cold when you can go all out with pneumonia!?
I hope you are on the up and up soon, very soon!
What is with all the angry lego man faces?

What a nightmare. I hope they fix you up right away! (Is it bacterial pneumonia?) The Pestilence Fairy came to our house too. (So far, we have two probable flu cases and one kidney infection.)

Once again, I'm troubled by the lack of women in this calendar. I'm not entirely sure what holiday message the Lego folks are trying to send, but there's something fishy here. I'm just sayin.'

I'm not messing with any part of this calender, it's full of scary pissed off men and a trap for girls.

Hope you're feeling better soon.

you've been on my mind!! i'm happy that you can sit now!

and i see that you added an "er" to that horrible word you introduced me to ... :-)

the advent calendar is still cracking me up. or maybe it's the way you describe it.

Well...I understand about the antibiotics. My ex-mother-in-law once said to me, "I'd hate to be your nurse in the hospital because you're so picky" Yeah, something about swelling up and dying really puts a cramp in any hospital stays I may have in the future.

The Police officer is a little grumpy...perhaps he's not done shopping for the holiday yet?

beki said...

Man, that's one scary looking lego. I may see that pissed off face in my nightmares!

Oh, and thanks for the new word, 'fucktards'. I like it.

Speedy recovery. It's spelled H-O-T-T-O-D-D-Y.

btw- It's sealed. We MUST have a Lego advent calendar.

I'm sorry about your pneumonia... hope you'll feel better soon.

And you totally convinced me to buy a Lego advent calendar next year. Awesome.

I want a pick axe today.

Glad you're feeling a bit better - that's super crap about Pneumonia though! You need to rest more (hah, I know).

Pneumonia means you've got fluid in your lungs, right? Could they hang you upside down for a few hours over a drain? Or use one of those Nasa centrifuges to flick it out of you?

I'm glad you are feeling better but it sucks that you have pneumonia... it also sucks that you can't take any of the easy meds.

I LOVE the advent calendar. LOVE It, I promise, Officer Marshal with your angry eyes.
