Navigating through blogdom is like going through the free flow of ones own thoughts. You never really know where you are going to end up. It works that way in my brain anyway. In blogdom you have collective blogger brain power to lead you astray and I have found it is easy to get off track from my original intent. And so that is the reason for this post.
I was reading Scalpel's most recent post "The Angry Migraneur" YIKES SCALPEL!-I'd say there are some anger issues there.-*(Also, I am adding this now (next day) as I was going back to check his comments when Scalpel got me with this...LOL! to which I am commenting now! Nice to know SeaSpray will be remembered for something.) ;).... when I followed his link to Kevin MD...where I followed a link to this (female trouble)....which led me to this comment by Small Critic - "I work at a reproductive health clinic- our clients will do all sorts of things to "look good" down there before a visit (including glitter!). But honestly, it doesn't impress us much. If you want to be nice to your gyno:
1. make sure your feet don't reek.
2. tidying up is enough. you don't need to get a sphinx to get a pap.
3. don't have sex 24hrs before your visit. there's nothing like seeing sperm on a pap slide!"
Which leads me to say SeaSpray's signature Bajingoland glitter would be turquoise and maybe mixed with a little silver when feeling really festive or hot pink in the summer. I love things that sparkle! Shoot...I could've decorated Bajingoland with red and green for the nurses at urodoc's a few days ago. Ha ha!Actually, the commenter above was probably talking about a brush on powder that has a little shimmer to it...or maybe the heavier glitter like for eyes? This whole time I am picturing that little tiny sparkley confetti glitter that you buy in bags for crafts or whatever...like on cards too. Hmmm...that would be a bit messy and perhaps annoying to the staff when they had to clean up colored glitter from the exam table, floor or wherever it falls. That stuff can turn up in the darndest places too...for a long time. So this inane post is because I am amused at the concept of sprucing up Bajingoland with sparkles. :)
Speaking of sprucing up...I found the comments interesting about shaving these body parts. Just this past year I had a conversation with the manicurist about the same things. Our thing was grooming the "chia pet"...yes or no and how much? I suppose if you don't it's the equivalent of trying to travel through the South American rain forest to get to Bajingoland. Of course...no- letting this one go..sorry.
As for this girl there is no way in God's creation that I would ever intentionally not shave or that I wouldn't care if I had trees growing on my legs. And even more than that there is no way in God's creation that I would ever not shower before a doctor appointment. Shoot-I shave for a root canal!
I had a friend during my twenties who decided to stop shaving. That site is not for the faint at heart...ugh. Long arm pit hair and even worse when the long leg hair was flattened under her stockings. (not my intent to offend anyone) Guys look great with that 5 o clock shadow stubble but unshaved/waxed hair on women? No! And it's not fair really. Men get to look sexy for being lazy! Of course we have multiple orgasms, but I digress. I'm just saying. :) Okay...the second I pushed the publish button I had instant blogger's remorse over the multiple orgasm comment. But I am not going to delete it. My point is that we women have to do so much for our appearance compared to the effort men have to expend on theirs, that we deserve the compensation of multiple orgasm capability...I'm just saying. :)
That being said, during the week of my 1st kidney stone on Monday through Thursday-every morning in the shower I had the idea to shave my legs but I kept putting it off until the next day because I was having a really busy work week doing my own hours but also filling in for someone else. Suffice it to know that on the Friday morning that stone hit with a vengeance. I apologized to the ED staff (for that and not showering or brushing my teeth) and even in the OR thought about it before I went under. I also thought about it when going into the OR for the 1st time with my current urodoc because I had been sick all week in the hospital and not up to shaving. (I know staff doesn't care-just embarrassing)
Then last winter a funny thing happened when I met another consulting urologist from a larger hospital who would have done the re-constructive surgery on my ureter. I was going to meet him for the 1st time for a surgical consult. I showered but didn't shave my legs. So...knowing how I really am about this I of course set Murphy's law into action.
I was also stented at the time and so took Percocet for it, usually just once a day during the day and another if I was more active. Sometimes though, just having the ureteral stent would cause God awful kidney (sometimes bladder) spasms that would level me and while it wasn't often...I never knew when one would hit and I would run for the Percocet and then dive onto my bed writhing in pain. NOT a good feeling! I had to go to this appointment alone and it was down in another county and I was concerned that I would have a spasm while driving or being alone but I didn't take it. At the last minute, I did have a friend go with me but I still drove.
The appointment went well, the doc was terrific and I was instantly comfortable with him. We even had each other laughing amidst the serious discussion. But then he told me to get undressed because he was going to do a vag exam. I panicked and in abject fear I blurted out, "But I didn't take a PERCOCET!!!" I can still picture him standing in the doorway...looking at me quizzically. ( I wonder what was actually going through his mind?) Then he said, "I'm not even going to use a speculum." Then I blurted out, "But I didn't shave my legs!" (I know he wouldn't have cared but it just flew out of me) then he said.."Okay...but then you have to come back down again." Then he stared at me while I was quickly trying to figure out what I would do and then I reluctantly agreed and said. "Ok-a-y-y-y FINE!" sigh! The exam was uneventful and based on the films I brought with me ...he also believed I needed surgery..but I digress.
I don't remember if I ever told him why I was afraid to have the vag exam without Percocet. I hope I did. I was afraid that his manipulating something with the stent in there might trigger a spasm and if you have ever had a kidney/bladder spasm then you know exactly why I reacted like that. I guarantee you I don't have to take percocet for paps!
Haha! I can just see it now...."Oh doctor...can I have a percocet for that pap? What? Your using a SPECULUM?? I'll have 2 percocets please." :) That would fly well with the ED docs! Plus I can see it now...the ED would turn into the Bajingo clinic. Haha...they'd probably have some guys trying to get a pap! ;)
Well...that's all I have to say about that. And on that note I will say...
P.S. Now I still need to go back to read Scalpel's comments to that post - tomorrow.
Also, when my girlfriend's daughters lost their teeth she would take the tooth from under their pillow and replace it with money and sparkley glitter telling them it was fairy dust left behind by the tooth fairy. :) Devan lost her 1st tooth today. Awww. :)
P.P.S. What the heck is a sphinx as it relates to grooming Bajingoland?
