I have a sensitive scalp!

On the 1st I had a minor surgical procedure on my scalp (again). Long-time readers know this isn't unusual for me. For some reason, I started getting cysts under my scalp around the time I was halfway through college or so. Actually, I think I got the first one earlier than that.

I remember being up in Wisconsin, and grandma B. was dying my hair and her fingers came across it and she thought she scratched me because she felt something weird. That was the first one! (That one eventually got infected and was removed 2-3 years ago. It was a lot of disgusting fun in the time period between where it got infected and when it got removed, though)

This was like the 4th or 5th time I'd gone in to have one removed, though. The doctors I've seen about it don't know why they happen. The internet says it is a mystery, too, but middle-aged women are more prone to them. Go figure. I know some people can be genetically predispositioned to get them, but I've never heard anyone in my family talk about them, and as long as they are on the scalp, they aren't even noticable!

I have two stitches in the back of my head, and the doc had way too much fun shaving lots of hair back there. The hair shaving doesn't bother me :P But it is uncomfortable while it heals.

I think I've always had a really sensitive scalp. Headbands give me really bad headaches if they aren't really loose, or those rubbery ones with elastic in the back. When my hair was really long, I'd get headaches from having it in a ponytail, etc. Any pressure on my head seems to just give me awful, nauseous headaches. It is a mystery. So.. I get the cysts cut out that way I don't bump them and make myself want to hurl.

TMI I guess? It's hard to tell these days XP I'm so socially inept.

So on Tues, I take Senpu in for a dental cleaning, and on Friday I get my stitches out. If my brother has Fri. off, we may visit him, but he never has time off. :X

Anyway, that's the most excitement going on with me.

I'm really looking forward to Vegas in March. I still haven't bought plane tickets/ reserved hotel for Nick's wedding in June, and somewhere in between there we still need to get tickets to Minnesota to do some family stuff.

I'm really looking forward to going out and seeing people. I feel like the worst kind of shut-in with no freinds lately, and getting to hang out will make me feel a lot better.

Oh! You guys know anyone who's tried nutrisystem? Matt was talking about it the other day. I don't know if he's serious or not, but I honestly don't know anyone that's tried it. They've got some sort of family discount if you sign up two people.. so if he wants to do it, I'm thinking about trying it with him. It seems like it would be much easier to resist going out to eat if we both have something at home. If just one of us tried it, the other would probably want to go out to eat anyway and we'd sabotage each other :P

Last thing, but guess what? I got into the Diablo III beta! Na na na na na na,etc. (It's pretty cool.)
