Some Laughs, Some Tears

My favorite two junK/spam emails subject lines today:

I cannot believe a 18 years old girl can handle a horses **** in her! Watch this...

and

Fwd: Farmsdaughter takes 20inch horse shlong

I'm unsure why, but almost every sexually over junk email title has been about horses and farms lately...please tell me this isn't happening in just my inbox.

I know most of my posts lately have been deep and appreciate-your-life type stuff. Understand that this battle with my leg is even more mental and emotional than it is physical. And while I hate to do it again, I just had to post about this young girl I know.

My family had a birthday get-togther yesterday to celebrate my mom, brother and first cousin's birthdays (which are all just days apart). My sister got a phone call from a friend who had just come from Mandy's house.

We grew up around Mandy - we sat in the same seat on the bus with her for years, her little brother and my little brother were good friends, and she's only a year older than my sister. Yesterday was her 23rd birthday, and she was supposed to be getting married in November.

Why I can't get Mandy out of my head is that she most likely won't live to see the month of November. Her young body is completely eaten up with cancer - she has it in her rectum, her colon, her lymph nodes...and somewhere else I just can't recall. They decided against a surgery to remove her rectum, as they felt it would just put her through undue stress, but she is on chemotherapy. My sister's friend said she looked horrible, and just sat there; obviously extremely depressed.

Gods, the world can be so cruel! I can't get her off of my mind...such a young life completely over. It's just so terribly sad.

Nothing else exciting to report for this weekend. The family get-together went off without much excitement. At least, no drama to report.

I plan to spend the day playing NWN and Everquest, and some point get off my lazy ass and run to Books-A-Million and get Laurell K. Hamilton's A Kiss of Shadows because it looks very good. I'm trying to write more, and to be a good writer you have to read.

The season premiere of Charmed comes on tonight, so I'll be glued to the TV around 7pm (what an odd thing for me to say - I normally abhor television). That's pretty much it for my Sunday-day-of-rest plans.

    Hey! I know this is kinda off topic but I'd figured I'd ask.
    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing
    a blog article or vice-versa? My site goes over a lot of the same subjects as yours and I
    think we could greatly benefit from each other. If you are interested feel free to send me
    an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Superb blog by
    the way!
