De-cancered! - Suffering From Elation
A Survivor's Tale
Another beautiful Friday! The week went by in a flu-ish daze. I'm really starting to pick up now though; all I've got left is a persistant cough and a bucketload o' plegm! (Sexy, no?)

Anyway, the activity for this afternoon is to head over to the doctor in West End and get my third and final anti-cervical-cancer shot. Can you believe they now have immunisations against some types of cancer? (Okay, I'm aware it's more complicated than that, but really, that's what it boils down to.) We're living in the future, guys!

Tonight we're going to catch up with Sarah Grey, as we missed our (now usual) Thursday night movie this week. My theory is that we were all still reeling over how awful the X-Files movie was. I think SG wants to see Mama Mia, which is a romantic comedy which Joe would never, ever go to see if I suggested it, and I'm going to tease him mercilessly about this small turn of hypocrisy, which is really quite cruel of me because he's been lovely lately! All in all I can't complain because the movie has got Colin Firth in it, and he's the Chuck Norris of romantic comedies.

On Saturday we're finally, finally picking up our fixed-up TV. We're going to need a hand getting the wall unit from the garage into the living room; Joey, me and two other men ought to be able to cover it but I'm not sure how to organise that or who to bribe yet. ;) Once the wall unit is inside I can set up the surround sound and such, and next time Joe gets a big pay I promised him I'd go halves in a Wii, so we will have A MIGHTY FORUM FOR SUPER SMASH BROS BATTLES in our very living room.

We're meant to be seeing Damien on Saturday, so if by some miracle we get the wall unit moved and the setup sorted, maybe we can watch some Pixar movies and draw or something.

Saturday night my workmate Pat, our resident mathematician, is throwing a Disco vs Glam Rock party and I'm thinking about going.

We're meant to be catching up with someone on Sunday too... I think Joe was going to ask Greg?

In other news, Chris is doing the partnership tax return, which is the final bit of Interrobang paperwork I'm still involved in, so once he's done that I can do my tax return and knock a personal debt out of the water. Sweet! We discovered a paperwork error means that we still each owe $120 from the last BAS to the tax office, but these things happen.

I hate to break it to you, but you're not really immune to cancer. You're immune to some strains of a virus that is known to cause cancer -- you can still get cervical cancer. The vaccine should not be considered a substitute for regular pap smears :)

"(Okay, I'm aware it's more complicated than that, but really, that's what it boils down to.)"

That was me basically saying the same thing without interrupting the overall gist of my journal entry to spell it out. I figured anyone who doesn't already know can go look it up. ;) I just love the fact that we've identified, and figured out how to treat, one of the causes of cancer! That just doesn't sound as cool as screaming "WE'RE IN THE FUTURE!" though.

Except heaps of parents object to FREE government funded injections.

Apparently if they allow it, it's like admitting your child is sexually active and a whore.

I'll have to challenge you when I'm up.
