Monkey Teaser........

So, you asked what do I do when I'm not gingerly, nursing my poor back? I'm monkeying around of course...Doi!

So, without much of a post, I introduce to you, the
FIRST 2010 Monkey Baby.

When will she be done? Gosh durn, is this 20 questions??...*giggles*
My goal is to have her done by February 1st. Or January 31st, whichever comes first. I know, I not only work backwards, but I am backwards.
Must have something to do with my back....I'm sure its all relative.

So, stay tuned in Tokyo, keep abreast, because when you peep back in, you'll find a full size newborn hand sculpted monkey....or is it human?
Ahhh....I love those shades of grey...
There is no black & white in Lori's World....but thats ok.
Ive always thought imagination is more important than knowledge ....

First Snow

I love the snow. But I hate the cold. I guess the snow comes with the cold, but if I had it my way (which I dont).....I would be the girl in L.A. having snow brought in. Then I could sunbathe in my backyard & go sledding when it gets too toasty.

I know I know....we all cant have what we want....and to think, I actually grew up in Connecticut.
Snow there, was exciting, 12-18" was normal...then I move to Toledo and the city freaks out over 2"....its sorta funny watching how everyone goes into salt & shovel mode, before the snow even falls 1/2" here.
Im thinking Toledo should just go all in, and stock up on food too. *giggles & snorts*

So, as most of you know I have this ba-a-a-ad back thingy going on.
Yah, it sucks. Im not sure if the pinched nerves are whats worse, or the chronic pain.
I havent decided yet...but I will get back to you on that one.
Rest assured, oh.... I will get back to you.....I'm really good at whining like that.
I saw a Spine Surgeon this week. He used really big words, but in normal peoples terms, the curve of Scoliosis in my back has pushed a disc loose.
So....what does this mean? It means, I get to hurry up & wait for an MRI.

I keep wondering if the metal screws in my mouth, will cause the MRI machine to malfunction with my mouth gluing itself to the top chamber of the MRI thingamabobber. How funny would that be tho?
And I know your laughing, dont pretend your not....lol

Enough laughing, you only get to laugh once a day at my expense,
So, this is what 2010 brings???
Ahhh...just what I wanted, Chronic nerve/back pain.......
Happy New Year to me, and ho ho ho.
Speaking of ho's....Betha El-Shamy, where is my CAWFEE??

P.S. Happy Birthday to Hanya...!!
