All Natural Healing, Baby!

gland

For the past several weeks I have been getting progressively sicker. It started off as just a sore throat and cold, and then turned into fatigue, headaches and swollen glands (I know that swollen gland game far too well). Needless to say, it was time for some blood tests. With all this swine flu stuff you can never be too careful.

This morning I got some blood drawn. The nurse told me it was probably just allergies. I have never suffered from allergies before, but hey, anything is possible. A couple of hours later I get a call with my results. Positive for Mononucleosis!

Sunday funday

What better way to relax on a Sunday than to enjoy a video from the Buntology archives? Here’s one from Winter 2008!

The funniest thing about this video is that Jackie’s the one holding the camera and laughing. She seems pretty satisfied with herself.

Jon + Kate = Divorce. [Update by Jackie]

UPDATE: According to the LA Times, “After months of speculation, the famed reality couple from TLC’s ‘Jon & Kate Plus 8’ is heading to divorce court. In a much-promoted episode of the hit series Monday night, Jon and Kate Gosselin, the parents of eight children, announced in separate interviews they were separating; seconds later, text appeared on a black screen to add that the couple had decided to ‘legally dissolve’ their 10-year marriage. The children will stay in the house, the couple said, and Jon and Kate will switch off living there.”

Today it became official.

Jon and Kate Gosselin filed separation papers in Pennsylvania court. This was actually done before their ” big announcement” episode.

I have to admit I have not been watching the show. I watched the first episode of this season and was so upset by it that I decided to stop watching it altogether.

I-Sketch Crazy

I haven’t written in a while. I haven’t been doing much of anything in a while. It isn’t because I can’t find a job, or have no friends..It is all because of a little website called, ISketch.com.

About a week ago my friend (and Buntology writer) William Cimino introduced me to this website. It is basically Pictionary online. There are a whole bunch of rooms to join, which hold as many as 10 people at a time. The object is to earn the most points by correctly guessing other people’s drawings, and the player doing the actual drawing rotates throughout the game. I am a really bad “paint” user, and that is the ISketch’s basic setup for drawing your word. Either way, this game has taken over my life for a good 2-3 hours a day.

Jon and Kate + Divorce?

UPDATE: JON AND KATE PLUS 8 MAKE IT OFFICIAL

I remember Jon and Kate plus 8 when it first started. In the beginning they seemed so much more happy and normal, despite having so many kids in the family. It makes me depressed seeing all these stories and tabloids [like this one? – ange] coming out about the couple. I know Kate always seems a little bossy and crazy, but don’t you have to be a little controlling and nuts when you have so many kiddies running around?

Sweepstakes Addictions

casino

I have always been a big sweepstakes, contests, can-collecting, and picking-pennies-off-the-ground kinda girl. I am not ashamed to pick up a recyclable or any loose change left on the floor somewhere. As of right now, I actually have more than$100 in my piggy bank.

As a young’n I used to win coloring contests and gift giveaways all the time. After spending lots of money on scratch tickets and lottery tickets I feel like the magic has somewhat worn off, but I still think that maybe one day I will hit the jackpot.
