This is blog of a woman who didn't know what she wanted and so chased after dreams and men in search of the answers...drunken hilarity ensued. Then one day she met a man who was everything she wanted, but he wasn't so sure. Then she did the unthinkable; after they broke up she gave him this blog address and she let him into her mind as well as her heart. Unbelievably, even after sorting through the sordid archives of failed relationships, one night stands and her lusty (and embarassing) pursuit to secure the heart of a certain young line cook, John somehow managed to fall in love with her too. Melina and John were married a little over six months after they started dating, running away to Las Vegas to seal the deal. You can imagine what the over/under bet was to see if they'd even make it a year!! Over a year later and they are still going strong...this blog has become their story. Need to tell me something?

Last night my mom called for our "check up" where we usually make fun of each other, make fun of others and then talk about the dogs. But last night while helping T load the final remnants of her life in one apartment in the car bound for a new apartment, my mom clears her throat and says,
"I haven't been feeling all that well lately, and I just wanted you to know. Just in case..."
and she trailed off. Who says, "Just in case...and trails off? Only a sadist I tell you!

So of course, I get that feeling of ice picks marching their way up my spine and I hear myself ask, "Is it your liver? Does your liver hurt?"

And she replies, "Yeah, it's swollen. So I need you to know who my specialists are and all...but I'll give you that info tomorrow when you're at home."

And so now, I'm panicked...One,because my mom would never alarm me if there wasn't a good reason for it and two, my mom has Hepetitis C and it's a "pretty nasty strain of the virus", or so says one of my mom's specialists who specializes in punching holes in her liver every six months.

This is the one of the few things that made me smile today...

I hate this post. I think I need to write another about sex, or stupid humor, or about what makes me wonderful...that kind of post would make me happy. I'll work on that.
