Both my kitties are love sluts. Happy gets insanely jealous of anything or anyone that diverts my attention from nuzzling and petting him: Saturday, he threw up on my acrostic puzzle book (but only on the front page, nowhere near the puzzles); today, during a Zoom rehearsal for a Bar Show number, he kept walking across my lap, hogging the camera.
Had a (hopefully) uneventful mammo today--had to redo one view because of a slight motion artifact. But because I'm back to routine annual screening rather than diagnostic, I got sent home rather than waiting for a radiologist to read the films. Fingers crossed there's nothing in my patient portal inbox in the next couple of days--back in 2015 (my last "routine screener") the tech said I should get a "letter" in a week, but the very next morning there was a message in my inbox that there was a "focal asymmetry" in my R breast, which led to ultrasound & then biopsy...and here I am 5 years down the line. I shouldn't have, but for old times' sake I stopped in at Hoosier Mama Pies and got a slice each of passionfruit meringue and dark chocolate cream to go--it was my go-to after the biopsy and each radiation session back in the day--but had only a sliver of each for dessert tonight. I can't believe I used to be able to eat a full slice and want more.
For dinner, we ordered out from Wing Hoe, an old-school Cantonese-American joint (reminiscent of those of my Brooklyn youth) in an old mansion that will be closing Dec. 12. Not due to the pandemic--in fact, for the past few years they've done mostly takeout and have been busy "A.F." since the shutdowns began--but because the elderly owner has been at it for 40 years, and the offer he got from a developer for the mansion & parking lot was just too big to turn down. Sigh--it won't be Christmas Eve (those of you here who are "members of" my "tribe" know what I'm talking about) without them.
We had all the stuff I normally shouldn't eat (I took a starch blocker): wonton soup (Bob's hot & sour was way too cornstarch-thickened for me, and I ate only one wonton); a puu puu platter (sparerib, crab Rangoon, fried shrimp, egg roll--I didn't eat the Rangoon nor the shrimp), char siu pork (sauce on the side), shrimp kow in white sauce, and yang chow fried rice (a couple of Tbs. did it for me). Enough leftovers for tomorrow.
