rue-madame's Diaryland Diary


Disjointed but it feels so good

I have always loved how camp and ridiculous telenovelas are so itís no wonder I love Ugly Betty. It is super rico. And it won prizes at the Golden Globes! Love that too.

My friend Cesar and I used to always joke about pobrecita Maria Mercedes. We did this as we pantomimed dusting furniture with penchť arabesque flourishes.

I only have one issue with Ugly Betty, and it is this: SHE IS NOT UGLY ENOUGH. Her clothes, people? She was wearing Marc by MJ shoes the other night, along with a TRB blouse. From top to toes, Betty was walking around in more than $550ís worth of clothing. I know the stylists are having some fun, but still. Iím irked because Iím broke and youíll never catch me running around in a brand new pair of MJ wedges! Bitter, party of one. Cíest moi.

But the poncho from the first episode? Definitely not designer. Go watch the episode online at abc if you donít believe me.

Remember how I qualified for a prescription assistance program? Well I dropped off the paperwork to my pharmacist, and ordered a refill on my superexpensive needles. I picked my prescription up today, and I DIDNíT HAVE TO PAY ANYTHING. No co-pay, no nothing. Nada! I magically saved $1400 in one swoop! And it couldnít have come at a better timeómy wrists and elbows have been really tweaky (this means: random shooting joint pain, throbbing aches in my joints from holding up a book to read, general exhaustion) As soon as I got home, I got my works out, prepped my needles and gave myself two shots.

I canít wait to start feeling like myself again. Auto-immune disorders suck. My system is attacking itself. I know I am my own worst enemy, but this is taking things way too far!

One of our neighbors stopped by around lunchtime today, so we invited her to eat with us. Lucky for her, we had a nice meal planned: crŤme of broccoli soup, and linguine with a homemade red sauce containing pancetta, mushroom and chard. She ran home and brought over dessert: a pile of tangy clementines, and a ripe pineapple. It was delicious and a nice surprise on a Thursday afternoon.
