Hit me baby, one more time


Yeah, so, one more chemo to go, you guys. Let’s dance!


By this time next week, I’ll be finished with chemo. I’m getting really excited.

My mom and I during my penultimate chemo appointment. Isn't my mom super cute?

My mom and I during my penultimate chemo appointment. Actually, it’s my penultimate chemo, and her last one with me. Next week my sister is taking me. Not only is my mom super cute (isn’t my mom super cute, you guys?), she’s the nicest lady on the planet.

There are a still few things I need to do after chemo, including removing my port and my reconstruction surgery, but those seem so minor compared to chemo. I’m never really looking forward to going under the knife; however, I am looking forward to getting my implants and having a nice rack again. I have some great dresses and tops that I haven’t been able to while during this transitional phase. I’m looking forward to being able to wear my clothes without worrying if my boobs like even – stuff like that. It’s going to be awesome.

In other news, my hair is really starting to come in. It started growing it after AC was finished, so this is about 12 weeks of growth.

Not too shabby, right? Once it fills in a little more on top I’ll feel more confident about ditching the wigs entirely. AND, once it really fills in, I will dye it red, because duh, of course I’m doing to dye it red.

So anyway, let’s talk about something else.

Hey, remember earlier this week when I almost burned down my house while making rice? Well, I made something else this week, and I managed not to start a small fire. Of course, this recipe involve frozen bananas and a blender, so it would have been difficult to start a fire, but if there was a way, I would have figured it out, I’m sure.

The Kid is really into “Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood” right now. It’s a nice show for kids. It has positive messages about listening, sharing and shit like that. One of the episodes that Calvin is into right now is about trying new food because it might taste good. We watch it on Netflix, and you can also find the episode on YouTube. The episode has inspired Calvin to try new food. He asked me for vegetables to try. He even tried some Thai food the other night, and he seemed to like it. It’s awesome.

Also, in the episode, Daniel Tiger’s mother makes something called “Banana Swirl.” It’s simple. You put bananas in the freezer, then put the frozen bananas in a blender and you’ve basically got banana ice cream. Calvin asked for me it, and I figured, “Sure, let’s try a recipe you saw in a cartoon. What could go wrong?”


Actually, nothing went wrong. It’s super easy, and it does taste like banana ice cream. You could mix it was walnuts or chocolate, but I just served it to him as is, and he really enjoyed it.

Of course, now he calls it “Banana Squirrel,” which I think is a solid name for it.

I'm a writer/mocker/goober/mother in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, podcast, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.

  1. Oh shit! Kenzie calls it banana squirrel too. Calvin is her density…I mean…destiny. Also yay for no more chemo! Looking forward to all the tit pics.

  2. This banana squirrel looks good. I think I’ll try it out. Another kind of “banana food” that I love is “fried banana” with a bit of sugar when it’s done.

Leave a comment, you guys. It's fun!
