comics: Breast Cancer Awareness

An amazing ad campaign drawn by Maisa Chaves for DDB Mozambique featuring well-known female comic book characters giving themselves self-exams to raise awareness of regular breast exams among women at risk of breast cancer. Nobody’s immune to breast cancer. When...

health: such a little thing…

I completely misjudged how long it would take me to get into work this morning, so here I sit at quarter to 7 in a nearly completely empty office. Which is actually a really nice thing. People always ask why...

me: I’m not sick, but I’m not well

The year was 1997, a bootleg copy of Where Have All the Merrymakers Gone? was in my CD player and I was a little too into this track… “I’m not sick but I’m not well, and it’s a sin to live so well.”

cancer: tired of talking about it?

I was recently asked a question that no one’s asked me before about my cancer & treatment: Are you tired of talking about it yet? Short answer: no. Long answer: nooooooo. 🙂

time: like a clock of the heart

Actually, it’s nowhere near that poetic or new romantic. To be honest, I’m ready to see the past year put in the ground. I’m just shy of a week away from my birthday and one gets into a state of reflection…

health: psych!*

First things first, the Afterglow happy hour is still on this evening at Againn from 5-7 (or thereabouts). It’s just going to be technically premature now, but still happening. I went in yesterday afternoon, as usual, it was mentioned that...

blog: still here!

Um… surprise hiatus? Yeah, sorry about that, but it’s been a bit of an exhausting few weeks with not much else going on to report.

Ok, not really.

health: walkin’ a bit funny today

To say that yesterday was an unpleasant day would be the utmost in gentility. It fucking sucked, no bones about it. Well, aside from my hip bone… but more about that later.

health: the big C

…followed by a little a-n-c-e & r.

“Are you ok?” is a question I’ve had to answer a lot in over the past week. Well, yes and no…

health: I paid for this!?

I’ve decided that one should not schedule medical appointments–among other things–on April Fools Day. This is not to say that your doctor is going to try to play a prank on you, it’s just that on a day when you’re...

fashion: head wound chic?

For those of you on the edge of your seats–I’m home, safe and sound. I’m totally rocking the head-wound look, though. I feel like a background actor in a civil war movie hospital scene. I was instructed to keep them...

health: quelle apropos

Health Care Reform seems well on its way to happening, and I’ve got surgery in the morning. Funny how that happened! Not to get too much into it, but after a visit to the plastic surgeon, she’s decided that a...
