Afternoon Quickie {BYOB}

1. If you ever won the lottery – what’s the very first thing you’d do?
Pay off all our bills, plus my families bills, allow my DH to retire forever and travel the world to visit all my blogger friends! :)

2. What is your favorite curse word? 
Is "Jesus Christ!" a curse word? I agree with Joey, it's my fave. I also say, God Dammit too.  I use profanity more in my blog than in real life.  I was brought up to NOT use profanity, but if I am pushed too far, I might actually say the F word, which Walt loves to try to make me say!

3. What is your favorite holiday and why?
Christmas is my favorite because I just love the giving spirit everyone gets into.  I love all the Christmas Carols, Christmas Lights, Colors, Smells.  The best of all, the smile on kids faces.  My second favorite holiday is Thanksgiving.  Because I love bringing the family together and having some great traditional, and some not so traditional food.

4. What turns you on?
Nothing, I am a cold fish (just joking!).  I love to cuddle with my DH.  Laying in his arms and talking.  But what really used to turn me on, was when I used to work for the Franchise Tax Board on the Swing Shift as a Key Data Operator.  I worked nights, he went to bed early and left for work by 5 am!  So we really didn't get to see each other except to say, hi and goodbye until Friday night!  I used to key at work with my radio tuned to a station that played love songs.  By Friday, I was so horny, just thinking about him, that I was ready to rip his pj's off!!

5. Whose blog spoke to you, stayed with you, meant the most to you, stands out to you this week and why?
There are so many great postings this week that it is hard to pick just one or two, but I do have to agree with Joey that Julie's post, The Wonderful Adventures of Julie and Sammy, was particularly sad and brave.  I also felt for Amy in her post.  Watching her vlog just brought tears to my eyes!!  I am so glad that she will be going to Chicago!  I just wish I were going too!!

Well, today Walt and I drove up to Reno for my 5th Fill.  I was told last time that I had 5.6 cc's in my 10 cc Band, and it didn't give me any real Restriction.  I was expecting her to only give me .5 this time as they are really conservative in Fills.  Since I only lost 1 lb in the last 4 weeks, she decided to give me another .6 cc's.  But when she withdrew the fluid from the Band, she said that she had a really good flow and she brought out 5.5 cc's and didn't extricate all of it.  So she is now estimating that I actually have about 6.5 cc's!!

In the past, I was always able to eat right after the Fill without any problems, other than to be careful in what I ate, and to eat slowly.  This trip, we met our Brother In Law for lunch before we drove home.  He wanted to meet at BJ'S Brewery so I ordered a bowl of Spaghetti with Marinara Sauce.  I have eaten Spaghetti before with no problems.

NOT THIS TIME!  I was careful, and ate slowly, but obviously not slow enough.  I only ate about 5 bites when I realized that I was going to be stuck.  So I excused myself, and spent the next half hour in the ladies room Slimming!  Oh well, it could have been worse!!  So for dinner tonight, I ate a can of tuna which is about 1/2 cup.  So....I guess you can say that I finally got what I asked for!!!  Restriction!!!  YEA!  Let's see how long it lasts!  Till next time....

Aloha My Friends  :)
