Of Ulcers and Olsen Twins

I had a dream last night that Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen were swimming in Vashjir and were archaeologists.  Whoa! 

Somehow I was in a toy store, and John Stamos was there plugging their new action figures--turns out it was for a new movie they were doing, and not WoW related.  Apparently John Stamos was in the movie.  I said in my dream, "You can't have the Olsen Twins in World of Warcraft!"

This is where it gets really weird (it gets weirder??):  John Stamos then turned into Charlie Sheen and tried to take me out to dinner.  Guess he was really really desperate since losing his two "mistresses".

I have no idea why I'm dreaming of Mary Kate and Ashly Olsen.  I checked on the web--they do NOT have an archaeology movie coming out.

I have no idea why I'm dreaming they have characters in WoW.  I'm old--42--and a grandmother.  My grandkids aren't even old enough to like the Olsens, or even to know who Mary Kate and Ashley are--they are one and half of one and not born yet.  (Daughter is prego again, yay!)

Maybe it has something to do with the way I've been feeling lately.  After a couple months of my stomach just killing me, I finally found out this week I have an ulcer.  Now, I don't know if any of you are into natural remedies, but I firmly believe they have their place, and I try to take all things in moderation.  In other words, I'm not a homeopathic-cures-everything nut, but I also believe doctors are all-too-often concerned merely in treating symptoms and not in finding cures.

I have had 3 ulcers previously.  I have gotten rid of them using cayenne pepper in capsule form--3 times per day, 10 capsules each time, for 3 days.  Your stomach catches fire, and the theory is this cauterizes the ulcer shut.  (NOTE:  I AM NOT A DOCTOR, AND I AM NOT SUGGESTING YOU TRY THIS WITHOUT CONSULTING A DOCTOR OR HERBAL SPECIALIST FIRST.)

The only drawback to this is, well, the cayenne pepper eventually has to come out.

Which leads me to my main story.  I left my guild.  We had a difference of opinion, and you know how you just know it's time? 

Now, this isn't something I took lightly--I've been with The Naked Fear for almost 2 years now.  I made good friends, learned a LOT about raid healing and raiding in general, learned a LOT about my class and how to play it, and just plain had a lot of fun.

But sometimes we can get stuck in a rut.  Sometimes people's perceptions just aren't going to change, whether it's our own or our guildmates.  And sometimes people just need change.

My heart feels worse than my ulcer.

And I'm doing a lot of archaeology.  There's nothing else for me to do at the moment.  *Sigh

Tomorrow will hopefully be a better day.  I hope you have fun!
