Randon Tuesday (and Pharmacy stuff too)

First of all let me say thanks so much to Un-Mom for turning me on to Random Tuesday Thoughts.

Be sure to check her out, she is very cool!

  • Why am I always expected to be the grown-up? Maybe I just want to be a friggin bitch, ok? Seriously, I don't always want to be the one that gives in. It's really pissing me off. BUT I can't say anything because I'm supposed to be the mature one. Yeah, right. Just hand me my Depends and get away from me. 
  • On that note, let me be the grown up for just a minute and talk to you about cholesterol. Yes, the Silent Killer. It's called this because high cholesterol can cause heart disease and hardening of the arteries and you won't have any symptoms until it's too late. Someone asked me how come cholesterol medications are supposed to be taken at night. The reason for this is that your body makes cholesterol at nighttime. The most common type of medication for treating high LDL (bad) and low HDL (good) is called a "statin" (simvastatin, atorvastatin, pravastatin, etc). Some of the statins are more effective when taken at night, however some have a long enough half-life that it doesn't really matter. It is a good rule of thumb to take them at night tho (or with the evening meal) because overall this will give you the most benefit, especially if you have to change medications due to insurance reasons. However, if you can only remember to take your meds in the morning, then take it then. The important thing is daily dosing.
  • My hubby is sick. I wonder if he has the flu. I wonder if he's gonna start oinking. Half the varsity Dance team at our high school has swine flu... we don't have dancers in our gaggle of girls... I wonder how hubby got it.... Hmmm. 
  • Why is there so much dog hair in my house? I think I'm going to make another dog out of it. Seriously. At least the new one won't poo.
  • Just where have all the cowboys gone?
  • How come Jessica can have a GPA that sucks as much as it does get such a high freaking score on her ACT? How come it finally clicks that she needs to do her homework when she only has 3 semesters left? How is she ever gonna make it in the real world without her mama?
  • Why is rain on a wedding day good luck? 
  • Speaking of, where are all the men in kilts? I really like looking at them. I mean I really like it.
  • It's raining like crazy and thunder and lightning. I'm ready to go snuggle in bed (with my oinky husband). 
  • Happy Tuesday!

Love how you go directly from bitching into a lecture about cholesterol. Ha!

I'm all for the poopless dog idea!

JW.BW said...

hmmmmmm... varsity dance team and illness... sounds fishy!!

i dont get the dog hair thing either. i have two short haired dogs, so why does my house look as if i have 15 collies????

it rained on my wedding day, and an old woman at the spa said it means your going to be wealthy... well that sure as hell isnt true so far!!! but im crossing my fingers that it will be true by the time my husbands 2 million children are ready for college.

great post!!!

marinik said...

i always enjoy your random tuesdays, make me laugh

otin said...

The cowboys just got spanked by the NY Giants! LOL! That is why they are gone, they are hiding from embarassment! All men are pigs, so any flu that we get is swine flu.

You? A bitch? I cannot believe that!!! :)

I like the way you think! -J

Sorry your hubby does not feel good. Half my hospital has it too. I am washing my hands at 15 minute intervals.

Have an egg timer and everything. :p

♥ Braja said...

Ah, honey, I gave up starting a sentence with "why" when I moved to India :)))

Little Ms Blogger said...

I hope your oinky husband feels better and I didn't know cholesterol was created at night. How creepy.

I think if you carried a 2x4 and just wonked people, you wouldn't have to worry about being a bitch or grownup - you may have to worry about how you look in orange.

Why do we always have to be adults!? Great question. If you find the answer let me know. Kilts are good!

The Fragrant Muse said...

Who acts like an adult? Not me.

I take my cholesterol medicine with my nightly Ben & Jerry fix.

Swine Flu doesn't exists. It's just a medical publicity stunt.

Maybe there is so much dog hair because you've got, um, a dog?

I married the last cowboy.

Rain on a wedding day, hmmm... in Italian they say "Fortunata la Sposa bagnata" which means" a wet bride is a lucky bride. I'm not sayin' anything more on that!

Goose said...

Someone along the way just needed an excuse to tell the distraught bride and groom when it was raining on their big day. It better not rain on my wedding day. I'll be upset. I don't care if it gives me good luck.

Carbunkle Trumpet said...

Does hubby want to be slathered in BBQ sauce and served with a side of cole slaw?

And who the hell said we have to be mature and the adult? I mean look at me, I am wearing the same size (lenght) pants as I did when I was in high school!

And lastly, thank god for Lipitor!

Barb said...

Men in kilts. Yummy!

tori said...

I am sooo going through that whole not wanting to "be the grown up" thing too and also the "I'm sick of being the one to always sacrifice!" Maybe I'm having a midlife crisis...UgH!

Michel said...

Don't think I didn't notice the cholesterol lecture in there!!! However, I will forgive you because I refuse to listen.

What could possibly go wrong?!

PS Downtown seattle has a whole neighborhood where the freakyfreaks where kilts around. Store is called utilikilts. (they gots a website - and I gotta admit, some of the guys in the catalog are a bit dreamy!)

Sara said...

As long as it rains outside while I'm inside, okay.

I've considered getting a vacuum attachment for the dog. I don't think he'd like it but I hear it works.

You're expected to be the grown up because you always choose to. Don't do it a couple times and they'll stop expecting it. ;)

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

We're supposed to act like a grownup? I guess I didn't get that memo... ;)

So how does one lower a slightly elevated cholesterol when they don't imbibe in cholesterol-inducing food?

My Swedish grandmother always said that rain on the wedding day is lucky because rain is associated with a bountiful harvest, and thus, fertility. :)

Sorry your hubby is sick - hopefully he won't grow a snout and hooves! ;)

Happy RTT! :)

Bee's Blog said...

Rain is supposed to be showers of blessings... whatever! What a bummer!

Sorry to read about your husband - I have one at home too - waiting to see a specialist but i know he doesn't have cholesterol!!

If you visit my blog you'll see that I spent the last three days hopping mad - so I cleaned and this time round I don't have a dog!

we don't have cowboys in this part of the world - not the type you're speaking of anyway lol!!

Mango Girl said...

Yes...where have all the cowboys gone? Makes me miss living in South Dakota (the cowboys in Houston are not quite the same).

We finally got some rain has helped with my thoughts.

Happy Tuesday back atchya!

MW said...

Ahhh...cowboys and men in kilts...yes, they bring a smile to my face... and I think I would have added cabana boys. Granted, I have never seen a cabana boy, but it just sounds good...hahaha.

Hit 40 said...

Great score on the ACT!! Outstanding. Colleges look at this score more than the GPA?? She is in high school right???? Your daughter will do great just like her mom!

McGillicutty said...

I just don't know how many times I have to tell you ditch the hairy bitches and get Shit Sues!!!!!!!!

Spy on hubby to make sure there's no dirty dancing going on. It's fun, not that I've done it, just sayin'.
