A Christmas Letter for You
In honor of the time-honored obnoxious Christmas bragging letter, please enjoy the next post.
December 15, 2011
Regretfully, Dear Friends I was unable to get out a 2010 Christmas letter as I was hospitalized at the peak of letter writing season. Not to shortchange you, I’ve included some highlights from last year.
Let’s face it, I am awesome. After working for the Senior Vice President of my old company & stretching the position & salary, I left to assist the Executive Producer of two local court shows.
On December 10, I found a new way to get across town. Hot damn. What good looking chauffeurs! There is no better way to travel at excessive speed & not get a ticket than in an ambulance. In short order, I arrived at my holiday vacation spot (aka Providence St. Joseph’s Medical Center).
I figured I’d keep my research for the Grey’s Anatomy spec script going & have some surgery on December 15. Odds are if you are born on this day, I will remember your birthday, if not, too bad for you. PS for the record- the OR DOES NOT LOOK ANYTHING LIKE THE OR IN GREY’S ANATOMY.
In June, I traveled to La Jolla to visit my brain-tumor specialist & figured while I was down there, I might as well do my 6th half marathon.
In August, I was going to have the opportunity to get drilled again, & as much as some girls are eager to get drilled, I passed.
Christmas came early, & in the fall, I was promoted to Associate Producer. Fall was also filled with imbibing & not enough running. Coupled with good eating, I added another 7 pounds… This was all a subconscious need to put on extra weight in case I had to get on chemo. Well, that’s the lie I’m telling myself.
I started dating! I’m really dating to lose weight. My December 9, 2011 MRI shows the tumor is shrinking. I’ve got the tumor on the run! I better start really getting some running mileage so I can keep this tumor & my waistline shrinking.
I do not want my new route to Burbank to overshadow darling rescue cat Robert, who has been busy growing 6 inch whiskers when he’s not busy taking gargantuan naps. He & I are both busy getting advanced degrees in how to speak the ancient language of Podling & often spend many a quiet evening doing so. We are looking to travel in 2012 & use this in our encounters with other felines.
Robert says “hello.” We both hope you have a very Merry Christmas.
Love & kisses forever.
Sarah and Robert
