Front of the Line, Baby!
I totally recommend cancer. You might have a few "side effects", but did you know you could go to the front of the line at all of the rides at Disneyland? It's true. Just don't run. That makes people mad at you. I went to Disneyland with my sister and my friend Lisa last weekend. I had a conference in Anaheim, so I just went out a day early. Such a fun day. No kids! I was really tired and didn't feel great by the end of the day, but who does? Eat a lot of churros and then spin spin spin and I'll tell you what: it isn't cancer that's making you sick. Melanie told the guest services people that I was 10 days post-cancer and we were there to celebrate ("Shelby Stroud, you just beat cancer. What are you going to do next??"). So they gave us "honorary citizens of Disneyland" buttons and we had high hopes that we would get to sleep in Cinderella's castle. Unfortunately, that's not how it works according to our friend Erin of the Disney Dream Squad. So instead we decided to make one of HER dreams come true by letting her pick out anyone on which she wanted Melanie and Lisa to perform a "honorary citizen's arrest". She picked a scary dude. They did it, though, and we felt pretty good about being able to turn the tables like that.
I feel great. I almost have all of my energy back. I'm pretty wimpy but I'm working on that, too. I have about half an inch of hair now and it is black. Weird. I look like a pretty mean chick. It's great for playing Guitar Hero but I pretty much still wear my wig when I go out. Maybe I'll post a picture, I just fear attracting the wrong kinda girl...
