Ease on Down the Road to the Midweek Musical Open Thread

We’re going to see the Wiz! 

We’re not, however, going to discuss the time I was in a civic theater production of The Wiz. An almost entirely white production. It was bad, y’all. Instead, we’re gonna party with Michael Jackson and Diana Ross, because that’s a hell of a lot more fun!

How’s everybody’s week going?

SWEET ACTION. Just realized my rank is River Song. This week is amazing. It’s AMAZING. Job interview, Foreign Service Officer Test was a breeze, lunch with my former girl scout leader (and secret hero) tomorrow, planned a bridal shower which is going to go off perfectly on Saturday, AND RIVER SONG???????

Something terrible is about to happen, isn’t it?

For the past few weeks, I’ve had a bump in my neck that I’ve convinced myself was lymphoma. I got myself so stressed about it that I went to the ER today to have them tell me they don’t feel anything besides lymph nodes in my neck. I felt seriously like a crazy person because even I was having trouble finding the bump when they asked me to show them where it was. :(
I have an appointment with my general practitioner on Friday. Hopefully she will be able to make me feel like death isn’t imminent. *sigh*

My week has been pretty underwhelming (can you ever just be whelmed?). I was sicko the first part of it – cough, sore throat, mucus *everywhere* – but at least I didn’t have to go into work. And now I hear there’s a snowstorm coming for Friday that might dump up to 2ft of snow on us!! Win! (sorry, PoM, I know you’ll hate it. it’s okay, it’ll melt.)

Also underwhelming: Boyfriend is being super fucking useless lately. I really don’t feel like having the “please do almost anything without me having to ask you multiple times to do it” conversation/fight again. At least not when I feel like crap already.
