And there are 8 things you should know about Mesothelioma. They are listed on The Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance Blog.

My first job was at a place called “Tampa Rubber & Gasket”, some of the gaskets were cut from sheets of pressed asbestos. I should probably be more worried about this than I am, but I don’t think there is anything I could do about it at this point, other than just watch for symptoms and get regular screening. I keep telling Em, I’m not going to die of anything because nothing interesting happens to me. She always rolls her eyes at that.

Topic #123:

Topic #123: Pick a blog or blog post you enjoy and write a post about it.

This is a blog I enjoy, This Space For Rent Call 1-800-BITE ME, this is the Blogger that turned me on to “Postaday2011”. We encourage each other, well, she encourages me, I don’t know if I encourage her but I try.

My first introduction to Stacey was on Twitter, when I got put on lists of Yankee fans, then I followed her links to her blog. It is a mix of things, she writes about being bipolar, being a Yankee fan (like me!), sometimes she posts fiction she has written, sometime a collection of random thoughts. It’s always interesting.

My interest in reading about being bipolar is personal, my best friend in the whole wide world has two children who have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and so I like to read about other people with the same disorder, perhaps in the hope that I can be a better ‘Auntie’ to her kids. Stacey’s blog is very helpful because she is very honest in it. She is very brave to put herself out there like that. I hope someday we get to meet. Except a part of me is afraid she won’t like me. There is my little insecurity showing.

So check out her blog, and that’s all, says she.

Hard at work

The transfer from Blogger to WordPress is almost done. I spent most of this evening copying my blog roll from my old blog to here. It involved clicking on each link, copying the title and url, and then pasting them in my link list here. If you scroll down to the bottom you can see them, I am quite proud of myself. As I was doing it, I noticed a couple of people that had moved their blogs, they had just left the old ones and started new ones. No transferring of posts or any of the shit I’m going through. But then, I am a tiny bit obsessed. Just a little.

There are some things that don’t work on WordPress, and I will just have to learn to live without them. All that is left is the list of websites and I haven’t decided if I am going to add them to the links list at the bottom, or make a page and put them on it. So many decisions.

The tiny picture in the header of the blog is my hummingbird tattoo. It was taken right after I had it done so my skin is red and irritated. I am still thinking about what my next tattoo is going to be.

At the laundromat

If you follow me on twitter, you might think I live there. You have probably read that tweet many times. I don’t check in on Foursquare there, mainly because I haven’t been able to find it. I also joked the last time I was there that the lady told me rent was due next week.

Here’s the story, we have a washer. It is practically brand new, one of the high efficiency washers. Front load with a compartment for your soap and buttons and all kinds of fancy stuff. We love it. My mother called me the other day and she has one too, but she doesn’t like hers. However, we don’t have a dryer. D and Em just decided we didn’t need one, I agreed with them. During the summer and fall it was fine not having a dryer, now that it’s winter, and I’m wearing socks, it seems I am at the laundromat every day drying clothes. I’m not really and I am sure not having the dryer saves money, we still hang up most of our clothes to dry, but I really don’t like trudging to the laundromat when it’s cold and the ground is muddy.

When I move, I’ll probably have to wash and dry my clothes at a laundromat, so I should probably just shut up about this.

On another note, I have decided to start doing my ‘feature’, “Check Out This Blog”. There is one below you can take a quick peek at. All links that I put on my blog are checked out by me and safe.
