After a recent discussion here, I have decided to call my bathroom the Jim rather than the John.

It sounds so much better if I say I went to the Jim first thing this morning.

Oh, a submarine sailor could add so, so much to this conversation, but I shant.

LOL - you guys.   I do agree that going to the "jim" sounds better than to the "john".

Never lose that sense of Humor. If you do you might as well check into the graveyard.  John

Two men are occupying booths in a public restroom, when one calls to the other,

"There is no toilet paper over here, do you have any over there?"

The second man replies, "No, sorry, I don't seem to have any, either."

The first man then asks, "Well, do you have a magazine or newspaper?"

The second man says, "No, sorry!"

The first man pauses, then inquires, "Do you have change for a twenty?"  Wink

Sue. . .you made me laugh out loud with that one. 

What I meant, though, is that I was implying that I went to the GYM. (I didn't mean any particulars).

Great joke Sue.  When I was very young, I went to my Aunt Cathy and Uncle Jack's.  In their bathroom was a big sign that I had never had seen before, it said "Please remember to flush the john, John"  I was so puzzeled, why was Uncle Jack called John, do you have the answer Mr Cobra?   Just can't do Jim, it has to be john after Uncle JackUndecided      Money Mouth(in honor of Bill and his new title) LaughingLaughingLaughing Becky

Rocquie,

  When I go to the Gym I exercise. When I go to "THE JIM", I take a newspaper crossword puzzle. John

John,

I have already used up the "chemo fog" excuse.  Soon, people will just insist that I am an air head.... I call it R.B.S.: "Recessive Blond Syndrome"; sounds better than "idiot."

Max,

 Ut Oh!!! I hope Sue doesn't read this. Why do you think I never tell any blonde jokes. LOLLaughing  I have often wondered why John is called Jack too. I looked it up and it says probably because the French version of John is Jacques and thats how it caught on.

Illead: What is Bill's new title? I have wondered about your avatar name and what it means too.  Most I can figure out, but some I can not. I am not even sure how to say it.  John

I put this here because you guys are on a roll with shaving, didn't want to change the subject Embarassed.  Roquie gave me the idea for Bill's new nickname, "the million dollar man" because of his new drug cost.  As for Illead (ill ee ud), some years ago I was signing up for ebay and our then son-in-law said to use illead for my user name (I have no clue why, I just did it )  When I signed up for this site I used it for my user name too.  I had no idea it would appear as my identity.  It has always been a little embarrassing as I figured  nobody would understand.  Isn't it an ancient poem?  I just looked it up, it's an ancient Greek poem by Homer.  No I'm not intelligent, our ex son-in-law is just weird, that's why he's our ex Wink  B&B

Becky,

   I signed up on Fee-Bay back in 2004 and it must have been different back then. They actually gave me a name. I sell ****** ******** *********** ****** and do pretty good at it. I buy used ones and clean them up and resell at a good profit. I do not do it for the money really. I do it because I like too. Even though I am not doing it for the money I am not throwing it away.

  I do not read poetry, but I have seen the name Illead before. Maybe back when I was in high school. By the time we get done with these treatments we will all be multi-million dollar people.  Just went back to re-read what I sold and and it was stared out. Do you believe this crap. I don't sell dope or anything. See how free we are to post?  John

I really was curious.....too bad.  Why would they blank you out unless they are "big brother" and watching you?  That is strange.  Sorry.  Think it was in the later 90's that I signed up on ebay so they probably changed after that.  I was always the one buying, but I learned my lesson, also got some great deals though.  You are right about all being multi million.  Wonder who ever sees all that money eventually.  Becky

  I believe this Chemo Brain goes on farther than we think. It may get better, but I think it lingers for who knows how long. John

So...picture this: I'm here at Area 51 receiving my chemo.  I'll give you a more detailed update in a few days but things are going better.  Anyway, I decide it's time to wash up.  They put the stuff in the bathroom and I'm cleaning up.  Sitting on the chair buck naked.  I feel a drip on my thigh...somehow I managed to disconnect the chemo tube running to my port.  No idea how I did it.  I panic and pull the cord.  Of course, I have the prettiest sweetest nurse ever today.  I modestly grab a towel just as she comes in.  She was SO professional in cleaning the stuff up and reassuring me there's no problems.  I was just sitting there partly embarrassed and partly pissed at myself.  On top of the that...one of the doctors is knocking at the door asking how long I'll be (he wants to see how I'm doing...really?). 

I'm sure it was quite a scene!

Karl,

  I would have grabbed a towel too. I would have wrapped it around my shoulders, jumped up and did a jig just for the nurse. Sealed Don't forget to update us as to what the progress is. John

 Here's another one: My father had heart by-pass surgery back in 1995. He was staying at our house and a nurse would come in twice a week to do what ever it is nurses do. The first time she came she checked the site on his upper leg where they took the vein they used for his heart by-pass.  She was looking at the site and said, "All my that is a long one" and my father having a sense of humor said, " I know and check out that scar, it's pretty long too". I thought I would bust out laughing, but I didn't. I could not see the nurses face I was in the other room, but could hear what was going on. John

When I had my vascectomy 13 yrs ago the nurse asked "Do you want to shave yourself or want us to do it?"  Without missing a beat I asked "Do you charge extra for it?"  She didn't think it was funny!

Here is a weird one.

When I started my R-Chop treatments in 2012 i kept smelling something I can only describe as maple syruped hot dogs.

This went on for some time and I finally told my oncologist. "That is a new one" she said. "But people do notice odd smells with chemo sometimes."   Durn - why couldn't it be something pleasant?   I still have an advsersion to maple syrup and hot dogs now. LOL Tongue Out

I have told this before but Here it is again. When I was on R-CVP my taste was all messed up. My sense of smell really got keen. I stopped at a Burger King and got a 2 fer 1 Whopper. I ate one and put the other in the refrigerator. That night I took it out and was going to heat it up in the microwave. So help me it smelled like Pine-sol. I haven't eaten one since. The dietician at the cancer center said it does not surprise her. Said we do not know what is in them to preserve the meat. She said they are full of chemicals and are a healthy NO-NO !!!!. John

I had never shaved "down there" so I wasn't about to trust myself.  I figured they did it all the time so they did.

Now that you brought it up...picture this.  I'm laying there with all my wares out.  The door opens and in walks about 6 interns to watch the procedure.  A couple of the nurses were quite pretty.  I expected the porno background movie to start.  Next is my doctor...Dr. Griswald.  Yes.  That was his name.  I just took a deep breath.
