My rejected Amazon review for "Melanie's Marvelous Measles" (Paperback)
Yes! Measles are the best!
By Katie Keenan
LOVED this book!!
First of all, I have never trusted anything those stupid doctors say! What do they or the CDC know? A bunch of money-grubbers, they are! This book, however? Worth EVERY penny. What a delight to learn about how Melanie's fragile immune system was able to miraculously fight off this easily preventable disease! What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, right? RIGHT! Unless you do die, but who cares about all those kids that died at Disneyland anyway? Not me!
I totally believe that carrots and melon juice can cure this thing! I have rubella because I never got vaccinated for anything and I am fighting it off by taking baths in onion juice and rubbing garlic on my feet! I only wish that when I show off *my* red, spotted skin that it incited as much joy as when Melanie showed off hers!! Judgmental vaxxers. "You should really go to a doctor" Maybe *you* should really read this book!
It may be the brain infections and numerous comorbidities of developing a disease that has been largely wiped out due to vaccinations, but I HATE that Jared kid. Man, what an idiot. Doesn't he know that vaccines don't #!$$^%&$REWR#RSFDDSG
Sorry my glands are swollen and I have trouble typing sometimes. But, as I like to say: RUBELLA IS RESPLENDENT!
Thank you Stephanie Messenger for this brave, compelling story that throws scientific caution to the wind. I love my rubella and resultant cataracts! By contracting it I am so glad pregnant mothers and many others can now contract it, too and feel as alive as I do!! Because I'm fighting for my life! LOL! FIVE STARS!
(Special thanks to Addicting Info for spreading the word:)
CONFESSION: I've never seen the movie Elf.
But, I know basically what it's about and that Will Ferrell's character is a super happy, optimistic little elf guy named Buddy.
Lately, I've been starting to feel like Buddy.
Which is weird because a year ago I was pretty much the opposite. I was missing work, I was depressed, I was in a show that didn't get a great audience turn out, and I wasn't booking the things I wanted after 6 years of hard work in Chicago.
It's so great to have that excuse - a New Year, a fresh start - to start living your life again. The way you want to. And not apologizing for it or worrying about whose hearts might break or not break in the process. (Spoiler alert: I think I might be breaking some hearts!):
I am officially moving to LA to really begin my journey.
I feel reinvigorated. I feel like my life has purpose again and I am working toward that purpose. I'm exercising again, I care about what I am eating again, I am spending quality time with loved ones and scooping up acting webinars (I'm lookin at you http://amyjoberman.com/ !) like they are the candies at a frozen yogurt bar!
Now that I've become Buddy again I feel like people are looking at me strange or thinking that I'm even crazier than before. What's great is I don't care! I'm Buddy dammit and I'm excited about things!
People are surprised because they are seeing me rediscover a part of myself that has been missing for a while. Happy Katie. I'm a little wiser and a little smarter than I used to be, but I'm smiling again :)
