How is everybody's week going?

No complaints here. (Other than the unrelenting heat that rolled on in about two days ago. Ugh. It seems like that in the last few years around here there are exactly 3.5 days of 'optimal' weather where you could sit on the deck without dying of heat/humidity between Memorial Day-Labor Day. Why do I have deck furniture again? It's lonely about 98% of the time! lol)

Good things for the week:

*The next (and final) book in the Millennium series was released in the US.

Been waiting for this!!!! I haven't dug into it yet because I know when I do it will throw me into an 8-hour echo chamber where all food/drink/chores/conversation will be IGNORED until I get to the last page. (I'm thinking tomorrow might a good day to settle in with it.)

*I don't have cancer. So that's really good. (Had a weird mole-thing that suddenly popped up on my chin over the last few months removed a few weeks ago and had to wait for the test results to come back on it to be sure it wasn't cancer. I guess it's a 50/50 deal with that type of fast-growing growth but I ended up on the right side of that '50'.) Though the whole episode is probably a precursor of things to come as I get older so I'll have to stay vigilant about getting bumps checked on....no biggie there. I can live with that. Who knew about sun disease in the 70's when I was growing up? I remember having one peeling sunburn after another as a kid and nobody thought anything about it. It just was what it was. Oh well. Not much you can do about it now, right? I haven't had a tan in at least the last 18 years so hopefully this is the last of the scary skin issues. *crosses fingers*


*Awesome LOST finale. I just noticed the other day that Netflix has seasons 1-5 available for "instant play" so I think I'm going to spend the summer rewatching the series while nothing else is on tv anyway. I can get Netflix instant play streamed to my TiVo in high-def which is OMFG@!@#$@# awesome and it will be interesting to go back and watch everything knowing all the stuff you know NOW about the Island's goings on.

What else good is going on??

My goodness Melanie! That's awesome news though :o) It never hurts to be that careful though but it's the waiting and wondering that is the hardest.

Glad to hear you're cancer free. I can relate, being a redhead that grew up in the late 60's and 70's. My skin sizzled plenty of times, too.

Great news, you must be so relieved... I had a couple of scares myself and was fine too, but it makes you think. It's so good to be declared healthy!
Have a good time with Millenium 3: I read all 3 in a row, barely breathing between books. Loved them!!

Glad to hear that your "weird mole-thing" was nothing to be worried about, Melanie. I had a similar scare, but the dermatologist said it was nothing to worry about either. I felt like such a load was lifted off my shoulders when I heard that news! Like you, I was a teen in the late '60s/early 70's and none of us heard anything about the dangers of tanning. I sure have watched it since I was 20 or so, though!

Francoise - I started reading it and whooooooooooo boy it's good stuff!!!

Carol - if you want to scare yourself, do a Google image search for cutaneous horn. That's what the mole thing was, though, obviously, I did not let it get to circus freak levels before I had it taken care of. OH.MY.LORD.NO. lol
