What do I do?

Ok so if you could get a “free” 8G iPod Nano, would you take it? Now, it’s only kind of free… I mean there is a trade off. I have enough points on a credit card to get one. But, I can also get about 42 grande lattes from Starbucks. I’m very torn. I think I would like a Nano but I really have my heart set on an iPod Touch. Well, actually I really want an iPhone. Currently I have the option of continuing to take a vacation each year, paying for electricity, or getting an iPhone. I can only do 2 of those things. Not all 3. I’m very jealous of all my friends who have gotten iPhones. I think that’s just about everyone I know. I want one really bad. But, currently I just don’t think I can do it. My current cell phone bill is just $25 a month…. ‘Cause I got my plan ages and ages ago and never changed it. Sweet! Plus, it also helps that very few folks actually want to call and talk to me since I also have very few minutes to go along with that plan. Anyway, I think adding on the data charges for an iPhone might cause me to have a nervous breakdown or something. But, I do want one pretty bad. Well, I think I’m going to say no to the Nano and just let my heart settle on an iPod Touch. But, even that is not going to be coming to me any time soon. That’s okay. I’ll survive… I think.

So, I’m on day 6 of headaches/migraines. I actually went to the doctor yesterday about it. If I go to the doctor…. Well… something is not good. Anyway, I got a prescription for a migraine medicine that later I found out is basically $23.76 per pill. My doctor told me I should take one anytime I felt a headache coming on. Uhm, yeah! It’s sort of a pickle. I mean I don’t want to waste a $23.76 pill on a slight headache. But, I don’t want to wait too long to take the $23.76 pill either and then not have it work. At what point can you make the call, “this is a $23.76 headache.” It’s not going to be easy to figure that out. Last night I had a pretty bad headache…. I did not take the pill. I decided to throw a bean bag from the freezer on my noggin and just sit in the dark. It sort of worked…. I guess I think it was better than taking a $23.76 pill. Seriously, how can that be right!!! Could M ichael M oore be right! Is something wrong with health care in this country? There was a brief moment where I wondered if I was just too old to live. I mean that jokingly of course. Migraines plus ovaries are killing my budget. BUT, on a good note… I did find out that my ovaries are going to be partially covered by insurance now… so that’s good news. Woohoo! I will no longer call for a ancient Greek play style boycott against men in the insurance, pharmaceutical, or medical industries… Clearly, some other woman has gotten some power and knocked some sense in to those industries. Hoorah! Anyway, $23.76 or not… it is nice to have hope on the migraine front. I know people live with those but I really don’t want to be one of them. I want the drugs and I want them to work. Hopefully, they will for me. I don’t intend to find out for several weeks/ months though. Hopefully, it will be that long before my head explodes again.

See with all that going on… don’t you think I have some Starbucks coming to me. I think I do. I’d like to thank my credit card for making that much coffee possible in my life. Anyone want to go get coffee with me? Anyone want to sponsor an iPhone for me? I hear its life changing.

Oh and before I go, let me tell you…. I am sooooo loving British television right now. I’ve been watching Robin Hood this week and it is delightful. I rented Robin Hood because prior to that I rented the British Miniseries North and South with Richard Armitage in it. He’s a bad guy in Robin Hood but I don’t care. Wheh! I’m going to start talking to the Universe immediately about him. He also has done some episodes of the Vicar of Dibley- which David Tennant also did. I’m telling you; those Brits have got it going on! I also recently watched Under the Greenwood Tree with a very handsome James Murray. Man, I wish I had BBC America. Maybe it’s best I don’t get that channel. Hmph! But, it’s not just the handsome men that are getting me… I’m just loving me some British dramas right now. I’ll be sad when I’ve made it through all of them. I hope they are working on filming more. I’m going to need more. I can’t wait to see the rest of Tess of the D’Urbervilles Sunday night. Thank you PBS!

Sweetie! I just want you to know....I don't have an I-phone. See? Does that help? And my mp3 player is that pink one we bought at the beach. See? Nice, right?

Sweetie - I have the PERFECT thing for us to watch the next time we visit ---and it is totally British! Save "Daniel Deronda" for me - I own it! I'll show it to you!

Love ya!
Argh. Sorry about the headaches. I don't have an answer for that. As for the ipod, my sis-in-law has a touch -- and it doesn't respond to my fingers. At all. The way I constantly misplace my phone, I doubt I'll ever spend iphone dollars.
Hey, just thought I'd drop in and say hi:) I don't have a cell phone at all right now, so you're ok!! And I'm with you on the $23.-- pills for migraines; yes, it's a risky call, but it is so worth it to take one when you feel one coming on and go lie down- get up in about an hour and you're good to go. I feel like that girl on the Subway? commercial who just eats a five dollar bill... except it's worse... a twenty three dollar bill... lol...
