10:10am-10:25am Drive from RTher to Work
[I’m pretty sad about this Hostess thing – not only because I’m tired of upper management in companies being greedy, bankrupting their companies in the first place, And Then blaming it on the workers who put all that stolen money in their pockets! And Then of course, a world without Twinkies and Ding Dongs would make me sad. Are they healthy to eat? No. Is it okay to eat them once in a while? Yes, I think it is. Are they a reminder of my childhood I would be sorry to see disappear from the earth? Yes again.
It has been said (most likely correctly) that another company will buy up the assets of the company (the brands and their accompanying product recipes – at least where the Hostess brand is concerned), so that these bad-for-you but occasionally good-for-your-nostalgic-soul-and-sweet-tooth cakes may indeed survive their original maker’s demise. Just in case they Don’t get sold and survive, I was going on a hunt for ’em in my local neighborhood – namely my closest (within 5 miles or so of work) Hostess Outlet.
Long unnecessary story shorter than it could be – I came away with two bags of powdered sugar Donettes, but there were no Twinkies or Ding Dongs to be had at all in the outlet (good thing I have a box of each coming from Amazon – let’s not talk price – we definitely achieved the ‘silly’ level, but Did manage to stop short of ‘crazy,’ ‘ridiculous,’ and my personal favorite ‘batshit insane.’) I’m low on time and energy in general these days (and interest too – a touch of depression anyone? Yeah, I’m being treated for that – it’s cool.), but I’m thinking that was a lunch hour well-spent.]
5:30pm-5:45pm Drive from Work to Acupuncture
5:50pm-6:05pm Get blood drawn for lab work
7:00pm-7:45pm Drive from Acupuncture to Home
[Including a quick drive-through of a pharmacy to drop off the Rx for pain meds I was grudgingly given this morning.]
Tuesday [Radiation Therapy – Day 17]:
Hm, I completely did Not (obviously) keep track of this day, and since this is actually being posted Monday November 26, 2012, I’m gonna let this one go…

8:20am-8:35am Chatting with “Georgia” at the main lobby reception desk at the RTher facility
8:35am-8:45am Driving from RTher to Work
[On days before holiday weekends, my company intends to close early. To that end we’re asked to take short lunches.]
[Yup, we did close. Yay! (You see, I work in a fairly small shop, and the policy is ‘we all go or we all stay,’ so work that has be done by any one of a handful of us can scuttle an early day for all of us. I’ve been both the scuttler and a victim of someone else’s scuttling in the past – but not today!)]

Additional Tasks Accomplished This Week:
