You know, I thought I'd have more to say.

So it goes. It goes. ... Shrug?

Gosh Armand, I don't even like to travel to pick Steffie up from school. You're a trooper even though you look very mad in your picture today.

Hello Armand...

Good for you!! My son and I were talking and as soon as this chemo crap is done we are taking off for Japan. I was there 2 years ago, didn't take him, he was not happy!! lol. It something to look forward to, that is the goal I am aiming for....

Glad you posted even a couple of sentences.... Alicia Xx

Vancouver is beautiful, one of my favorite cities to visit... Have a great time and I hope it brings you energy!

Enjoy! A change of scene (and sharp breath of crystal air) sounds ideal. My mom was born and raised in Vancouver. Such a beautiful city. I miss those mountains and the sheltering waters.

What sort of research do you conduct?

Armand said...

Daria: I've never been known to take no for an answer. I find that by this point, it's 40% ability, and 60% determination.... And I'm tired of feeling like I've been screwed over... So I just push past the fact that I'm sick. It's working so far, but alas... Thanks!

Holly: Now if only I could get the University to pay for that flight too... :p

Sharon: Not mad... DANGEROUS! :p

Alicia: Oh, Japan. I took a Japanese class in the last term of my undergrad. Yeah, that tanked my average.

Deborah: It's what I do!

Beth: Many thanks. I can't wait!

Gazelle: I've never been to Vancouver before. I can't wait to see it. Research-wise, the stuff I'm presenting is a study we've conducted on learning methods -- relative benefits/drawbacks of online versus face-to-face methods, etc. My other research job is all social psych stuff, and we're looking at hate, evil, self, etc. Fun stuff! :)

Very nice of you to reply.
Hang in there - DON'T GIVE UP THE FIGHT!
I expect to see you writing new memoirs on your progress and recovery. And i'm sure it will have good entertainment value too bro.

All the very best
