will preface that if I offend anyone for my ignorance I apologize in advance –

I was doing some business at my bank recently, right around Christmas.   I was sitting in one of those office/cubicles with one of the Bank Associates.  I noticed he had an opened cardboard box with a Menorah picture on the front of it.  I could see his Menorah on the top of his cubicle with all the lights on except one.  So idiot that I am I said, “Gosh, that’s a drag that one of the light bulbs is burned out, I hate when that happens.” He informed me that there is still one day left of Hanukah.  Just call me  I-D-I-O-T!

Dale knows me too well because as soon as I told him one of the lights was burnt out he knew where this story was going.

IMG_0178I’ve been slowly feeling my “mojo” coming back after an almost three year hiatus.  I finally got a diagnosis, confirmation and surgery to correct this rare condition of a large piece of bone that was missing from my inner ear.  I had been feeling completely dizzy and disoriented and my quality of life had completely gone to shit.  I felt like a broken person.  I could barely function and was completely angry and depressed because no one could figure out what was wrong with me.  I struggled at work everyday and although I looked relatively sane in my head I felt completely bat shit crazy.  I know it will still take a few months to feel the full effects but I’m excited because I do feel different and a little more sane.  I can feel that twisted humor coming back to me and I’m starting to compose blog posts in my head again.  I need to start jotting down when I do a faux pax (constantly do this), I think it’s cute –  but, not sure if the participating parties do.

I’m not even sure if I still have a mailing list set up so please say hello if anyone’s out there…
