20 Things You Might Not Know About Ghostbusters

The deus ex machina of the Ghostbusters crossing the streams of the proton packs helped them to—spoiler alert—defeat the Marshmallow Man and the evil demon Gozer at the end of the film. According to Ramis, this activity didn’t appear in script. He and Aykroyd were unsure how to get the Ghostbusters out of the final scene alive, and because the nuclear technology behind the proton packs was “explained” with humorous techno-babble and mostly left up to the audience’s imagination, they came up with the idea of crossing the streams—an act which would somehow cause a cataclysmic shift in our dimension. After this decision was made, they added in some foreshadowing of the event to an earlier scene, only to revisit the concept in the climactic standoff at the end.

So…she’s a dog.

Yesterday…

all our troubles…never mind. So it’s real. Now the stories of people who have had this evasive prostate cancer come flying  in. Everyone knows someone..which is good, right? Of course they are usually really old and the side effects don’t bother them- I mean- many are already wearing diapers, so WTF.

Anyway, the laughs from yesterday, the denial, seems to have worn off and now waiting for a CAT scan to make sure it hasn’t spread. Which it hasn’t, I am 99% sure…GO TEAM!

Cancer- Fuck

I’m doing the dishes out of sheer stress. I hate doing the dishes. The Husband does the dishes, but he’s at the doctor’s finding out the results of his prostate biopsy.

As in ‘does he have cancer and how bad is it?”

Fun times.

He didn’t want me to go.

"It’s like I brought my mommy with me," he said as he rode off on his bike.

Note: Who rides his bike to the doctor in SoCal when we have two perfectly good cars?

Anyway…I am sick to my stomach. 36 years with The Husband and this is not what we were looking at right now. Life is good, could be better, but we laugh. We live at the beach. He works hard fixing up this house in exchange for living near the beach. I write for a living. I take care of my mom on occasion because she has cancer as well. (Two of the healthiest people I know have cancer. Fuck eating right. I’ll have a Big Mac and some fries this afternoon just to tell cancer to go fuck its self.)

OK…here he comes…

Cancer. FUCK!

Girls are trained to say, ‘I wrote this, but it’s probably really stupid.’ Well, no, you wouldn’t write a novel if you thought it was really stupid. Men are much more comfortable going, ‘I wrote this book because I have a unique perspective that the world needs to hear.’ Girls are taught from the age of seven that if you get a compliment, you don’t go, ‘Thank you’, you go, ‘No, you’re insane.’
