Girls Just Want To Have Fun

Where do I begin? I believe I will start at the end and work my way backwards. So, here we go…


Kelly is resting in ICU right now, quite comfortably considering what she went through earlier. She was admitted to MDA on Friday, having her tumor embolized in preparation for Monday. Her nine hour surgery today went very well, with the vast majority of the tumor being removed, two titanium rods screwed and cemented in place and no paralysis. What more could a girl want? Thank you, God. Oh, and lest we forget…thank you McDreamy. You truly made a girl's dream come true.




Speaking of McDreamy...when I arrived in Houston Friday night, my sister Kelly couldn't wait to tell me how she had informed McDreamy that I have a blog and he is among my victims. Oh yeah, and that we call him McDreamy. Behind his back. Well, yeah. Like it would be any fun to his face. Anyway, thanks, Kel. I will so get you for this one, too! As a matter of fact, now that I know you will live another day, you can still walk, and you plan on continuing to drive me crazy, I believe I will begin my retribution at once. Yes, I believe I will.




Let's begin with hair and attire. You took great pleasure in tormenting me this weekend about my hair and clothes. I believe you mentioned I reminded you of a certain type of woman. Now who was it? Let me think. Oh, that's right! Wasn't it something like, "What are you, Amish, with that hair and outfit?" Yeah, that was it.



Then their was that little pet name you kept calling me every five minutes. What was it again? I believe it smacked of political incorrectness, if I recall. Wasn't it along the lines of, "Hey, Pocahontas! Get me a kleenex!" Why yes, now that I think about it, I think that was exactly the perfectly delivered insult regarding my hair.

So, I just have one question for you, regarding your hair and attire. Who are you suppose to be.....



Cyndi Lauper?




Oh, and one last thing for all of you wondering about my hair and wedding outfit. No, I didn't go shopping during the surgery. I was actually a bit scared and worried for my sister and just could not bring myself to leave the hospital. No worries. I still have my plan. What? I never told you my plan? Well.....

So happy your sister is doing good and back to her old self...i love your banter back and worth.. tell her her hair is more like Courtney Love after a long night! Hope for her continued recovery.

Ms. Anthropy said...

Are you sure she had surgery? She looks like she might have had a roll in the hay, with McDreamy. Glad to hear she is back to her sassy self and glad you never left your sassy self. Hope the weather is better for your trip back.

I so envy you and your sister your wacky humor and huge love for each other. So glad to hear the operation went well. If you can't find a thing to wear to the wedding you could borrow one of the hot looking gowns your sister is sporting in the photo.

Nancy C said...

Wonderful. I can't wait until your sister is once again singing and making appearances on Celebrity Apprentice.

Nicole said...

Hysterical. Priceless photo. I love you for posting it! Love you! I'm thinking that I'll steal your blog entry for her blog...but I'm not sure about the picture...she might hate me forever. It's one thing on your blog for your readers...but on her blog. Oy, I think I better skip it. Hee!

Give her a kiss for me - fantastic news!!! And then smack her and tell her to give you my cell number so you can at least text me. Do they know how to text in Oklahoma? Or I guess a better questions is does Pocahontos text?

Mommy Lisa said...

Glad it went well...Say Hi to McDreamy.

Andrea said...

SOOOOO HAPPY Kelly came through the surgery well! We'll continue praying for her full recovery. Marla you'd better watch out once she sees the Courtney Love pic I think you're in trouble! Unless it WAS a roll in the hay with McDreamy - then she's in trouble...lol

Monkey Man said...

Sweet revenge. Very nicely done. Also, you must be relieved to know your sis will live to harrass you another day. Guess in wome sort of sick and twisted way, that is a good thing. Smiles.

Alma said...

It's all Good!

What great news! So glad that God has been faithful and taken care of your sis the last week. Now we had better start praying for you, that pic you posted of your sis is going to haunt you when she is up and feeling better! I would so kill you for that one!!! Glad you are in Oklahoma with that camera!

You made me laugh with the Cyndi Lauper comparison. I'm thrilled that your sister is doing well enough to give you a hard time. May she give tease and torment you for many years to come.

Marla said...

Thanks everyone, for all the well wishes, prayers and Courtney Love comparisons. Once Kelly is out of her drug induced stupor, I know she is going to KILL ME! So, goodbye in advance.

And McDreamy said...?

I'm so glad the surgery went well, and you'll still have Kelly to torment... er, I mean have Kelly to torment you! Yeah, that's what I meant.
