Young at heart  
So first things first... I got the ECG removed at lunchtime (and dear God what a relief that was!) but apparently I now have to wait two weeks while they send the results to my GP, who then gets in touch with me.

I'm assuming if it were anything serious there would have been slightly more urgency!

And I had to remove about 8 layers of epidermis to get rid of all the sticky from the tape that was holding the wires in place - ick!

You may remember (but probably not) that some time ago I was angsting over, amongst many other things, what to get an 8 year old as a birthday present. omteddy2006 suggested I cheer myself up by buying myself a toy at the same time.

Well I didn't do that because the toy I wanted wasn't available - but then it became available and I was all over it like Will on a wagon...

My very own Little John... YAY! :)

(Though sadly not the full life-size, ultra realistic version. Honestly the charges these days for bespoke kidnapping are just exorbitant! XD )

He's now perched above my computer desk keeping a stern eye on me as I mod hoodland and continue to be extremely mean to him.

So my inner 8 year old is delighted... and now the hubby has just arrived home so I'm looking forward to seeing just how much of an eyeroll I get... ;)

ETA: LMAO!!! Hubby came through to study asking me something about some paperwork... "so I was thinking you could drop that off tomorrow..." *clocks mini-LJ at his eye level above my desk* "Evenin', John... and they should get back to us next week... I'll go and put the dinner on..."

Barely even paused for breath! XD

Mr. WYG is awesome. Trufax.

It was the way he acknowledged it like an actual person! Too funny.

I was almost tempted to go with "like Much on meat" but that just sounded so wrong - even for me!

That's what REALLY got me, lol!! XD Thirding that Mr. WYG is awesome. :D

Glad to hear the ECG is off, and that they don't seem worried yet; the good-health wishes continue to come your way. *hugs*

I did get a spectcalar eyeroll today when a trailer for "Strike Back", RA's new thing, came on and included a shot of him tied to... something, didn't really see what, not important, just tied - and I went "He-llo! Fanservice!"

Cue a 7.2 eyeroll...

Unfortunately the thing they were trying to catch didn't happen in those 24 hours, oh no, it waited until last night to make a reappearance... *sigh* Never fails...

UGH. :( *huggles* Hopefully, they'll still be able to catch whatever it is from the data they got.

That's quite an eyeroll... mine doesn't usually have many physical reactions when I say things like that. Sometimes, I get a nervous chuckle or an "oooo-kaayyyyy..." :D

You should see the amount of LotR action figures I have. I used to carry one of Frodo around in my purse. XD

I have photographic evidence (available for a small fee) of applebeing and roh_wyn playing with Guy on our dinner table when we met up in London... ;)

And I'm probably going to have massive temptation-resisting fail in the next 24 hours...

Glad to hear things are not urgent with regards to the heart.

Little John is lovely. I know you'll enjoy him very much.

What's the fee for seeing that photo?
WYG: Guywastingyourgum on April 16th, 2010 10:08 pm (UTC)
Maybe I should ask roh_wyn and applebeing what the fee is for not seeing it? ;)

But here's the Guy in question..

I love his little spurs! We had him holding cocktail sticks with olives on at one point (was a tapas restaurant -we weren't drinking martinis!)

*fingers crossed for ECG results*

My partner doesn't blink at my fangirlish exploits either these days :)

Are you finding that LJ falls over a lot? Mine does. His staff is also very bent, erm... (I have a full set - I'm a sucker for action figures - but remain upset that there's no Much, Allan or Will *sniff*).
WYG: John S3 seriouswastingyourgum on April 17th, 2010 01:31 pm (UTC)
No, my LJ seems to be a fairly well-balanced individual. His staff is a little skew-whiff but not too bad - just a slight kink ;)

I can feel my resolve crumbling by the minute...

*also crossing fingers for ECG results*

Tiny Little John is adorable. No doubt he will happily protect your computer for you :D

Ha! That action figure is awesome... and so is your hubby! LOL
WYG: Willwastingyourgum on April 19th, 2010 09:16 am (UTC)
Yes he is... and yes he is ;)

Sucks that you have to wait for the results, but at least you have something to play with in the meantime.
WYG: Allanwastingyourgum on April 19th, 2010 09:20 am (UTC)
I'm not that worried. If they'd found anything serious I think they would have mentioned it at the time.

And I did totally cave and buy that set of 5 as well so now I have 2 LJ's... Oh, the possibilities... ;)

But why is there no Allan or Much?! :( Waaah! *sniff*
