Get on your (MF) Boots (again)

Live, On the Drip, DF 10
I'm here mainlining my poison, curtain drawn, no window seat. A new chemo nurse proving to be our biggest challenge yet just blew our game by offering up, unsolicited: "Westwood cancelled school last night at 8 p.m." *Westwood.* Damnit. We would've gotten there. My first impression was JP but my intuition said go west. Now we'll never know.

James is off on a mission to find some top secret (not anymore) list that DF patients can put their names on for free Sox tickets. In the meantime, I thought I'd post a quick playlist. I Shazam-ed a couple of these songs from WERS on the drive in as we dodged caravans of snowplows.

7 Songs of the Day -- 3/2/2009
1) Get on Your Boots -- U2
2) Sawdust Man -- Ben Kweller
3) Inni Mer Syng...Vitleysingur (Inside me a lunatic sings) -- Sigur Ros
4) Linger -- Jonatha Brooke
5) Troubled Mind -- Everything but the Girl
6) Overkill (acoustic) -- Colin Hay/Men at Work

Red death: 3 down, 1 to go

Another one down, KJ. I wish you well this week. I wish you Red Sox tickets. I wish an early Spring arrival on your doorstep. (OK, the last wish is a bit self-serving, but I do wish it for you more than myself, so not totally selfish...).

Sending good vibes your way. I'll check in with you tomorrow.

xoxo

Planning another night out for us....all you need to do is show up : )

You should laugh in the face of b'cancer - it may slow you down but it won't keep you down Mama !

Be kind to yourself this week.
