Vertigo is not fun.

It sounds sophisticated, though, doesn't it?  But alas, unplanned vertigo is not fun.  But the medicine they give you to fix it????  Lets just say it- I like it.  I do.

 I'm hoping I have to be on it for awhile even though several things are suffering.

1. My typing.  Not good on a normal day, even more skittish these days.  For instance, I am going backwards in my typing to delete just as much as I am going forward.  Another for instance- the letter 'u' added to sophisticated makes it soup-histicated.  Better or worse? You decide.  And if you leave out the p in hoping- makes the word mean something entirely different than I intended.  REALLY- this typing bit is hard!

2.  Decision making.  Not that I care if I actually make a decision- I don't.  For instance it confuses my husband when I answer him like this.  "maybe."  "what do you mean?  Do you want to or not?"  "Maybe," I say. "Maybe I do, maybe I don't, I'm not sure.....but whatever, you decide- I'm ok with it, really, I'm ok"  He took that as a yes, I know, you're surprised.

3.  Decision making.  I just had to leave you there for a minute to clean up dog urp.  Who gave her fried chicken anyways?  Everyone knows dogs can't digest that deep fried goodness.  Oh that's right- I did.  But it was good- I just thought she'd like a little.

4.  Judgement.  I know, it sounds a little like decision making.  But this is something I am thinking of doing, I haven't done it yet so if I am totally off the planet here just tell me.

We have a huge patch of lawn that has been consumed by dandelions.  The ratio of dandelions to blades of grass is overwhelming.  As quickly as husband mows down a bunch of those white-seed-filled orbs a whole new crop appears- with in hours.  I have an idea.

 I think I am going to go out there with my little hand held vacuum and suck up all the puffy seed blossom things.  What do you think?  I realize that I'll have to do it more than once.  My thought process is that I am creating a broken link in the chain of reproduction.  Right?  Like if all the rabbits are re-populating but unbeknownst to them the girl rabbits had some birth control pills mixed in with their pellets and a few rounds of baby rabbits never came to be- think how the rabbit population would change.  So- do you think the vacuuming could work?  Do you?


  1. BTW- supposedly its pressure in the ear canals caused by mere allergies. Unless, of course its the pre courser to something much worse and they just don't want to tell me because its that bad....

  2. You are so very funny...and I must tell you...I'm happy to have stopped in here tonight! Humour girl, you've got it!

    I think pulling out the hand held vacuum would be much like vacuuming a dog to stop the daily shedding! And yes, I've done that....she liked it!

    I say go for it woman! What have you got to lose afterall?
    But maybe you should do it under the cloak of darkness so the neighbours won't think your.....what's the word.....oh yes, "unusual". Hehee...

    Thanks for stopping in to see me...and for leaving your sweet comment!

    Ciao Bella!


  3. First off, I think the meds have convinced you that anything is possible. It's not. Although the thought of you out there Dust Busting up dandelion fuzz reminds me of the scene in Horton Hears a Who where Horton loses the speck and has to look through the whole field to find it. In other words, only in movies does that work.

    Vertigo? I'm convinced I have a splash of that. Sometimes I get so motion sick and Dramamine never helps. I cannot even ride in the back seat of most any car because it makes me horribly ill. Add hills and winding roads to that, and I am a goner. It feels like a bad hangover. I've suspected vertigo, but have no proof. However, if drugs are involved, maybe I'll try to get it diagnosed...

  4. Mel- and anyone else plagued by good old fashioned motion sickness-
    Dramamine is useless. Meclazine (Bonine in its over the counter form) works wonders. There's a trick to it. You have to take it at least one hour before you leave. That's before you get in the car. It works better if you take it hours before. When I know I have to get in a car as a passenger I take it the night before. Meclazine is what the doc prescribed along with an anti- naseau that I have never taken before and I suspect it is the fun one of the two:). I do, I do!

  5. I don't like to laugh at someone else's misfortune, but your post actually did have me laughing out loud.

    I thank you for that!

    And, I do hope your vertigo goes away soon.


  6. i like it - it looks clean and clear (and that has nothing to do with a facial cleanser!). the red was pretty but hard on the eyes!
    i'm surprised you told said husband "maybe"... i bet he was thrilled with your maybe, so much better than your "no way in hell" :) haha!

  7. Great blog!

  8. I get vertigo as is my ears...stuff floating around in liquid that manages balance...they give me your art :)

  9. Hey, Chris. Thanks for stopping by my blog. The comments you left on my latest post cracked me up. You really should try standup comedy. You have a fabulous sense of humor.

    I'm sorry to hear about your bout with vertigo. I pray it goes away!

    Have a great Memorial Day.

  10. I say "suck em' up!" Sorry to hear about your vertigo!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting on my keys. As for the collection of pens you have, I'd put them in a big ornate frame to showcase them.

  11. Just so you know, folks, every time- until I stopped taking those meds- every time I walked by those dandelions I had a strong compulsion to run inside and grab the vacuum...I'm not kidding, the only thing stopping me was the thought of having to buy another portable vacuum.


Thank you for visiting with me:)
