in which i am intentionally vague

Don't ask for details.* Just say "Poor little Niobe."

And be glad you're not me.



*But I promise it has nothing to do with Kyrie or ultrasounds or grief or preeclampsia or, in fact, any of the bad things previously mentioned on this blog.

I'll join the party.

Poor, poor Niobe.

niobe said...

Thanks, Aunty B.

Kymberli said...

As if any of the aforementioned reasons to need a "poor Niobe" weren't bad enough, something else has to be added into the mix. Completely not fair. So, poor niobe times ten, because you've had more than your share of crap.

G said...

Poor little Niobe :(

Lori said...

I don't want to diminish you with the "little" or to make you a powerless victim with the "poor."

So if it's OK with you, I will just hold thoughts of a strong and centered and hugely supported Niobe.

XO.

niobe said...

Lori: But I really am little. (not quite 5'2"). ; ) Thanks for the support.

And thank you too, G.

My Reality said...

Fuck. Poor little Niobe.

Dayna said...

Poor little Niobe.

*hug* Hang in there.

Eva said...

Pobrecita!

Clarabella said...

Poor little Niobe.

susan said...

Because I am very good at following directions, I will add: poor little niobe! (and an oh crap! for good luck)

Bon said...

you are little. and that sucks. poor little Niobe.

Tash said...

This blows. The Universe, she is a pissed lately. Poor wee Niobe.

Magpie said...

Crap. Sorry.

You know, you don't seem little. And I've even met you. Huh.

But sorry. I hope that it gets better.

Sara said...

WTF is going on with us pitiful people lately, what with the heaping on of the crap?! Jeez. Poooooooor niobe!

wheelsonthebus said...

A party? I'll take any kind.

Poor little Niobe.

thailandchani said...

Sorry to hear that you are now plagued with medical issues. Wishing you all the best.

Can't call you "poor little Niobe" because it just doesn't seem to fit.. and we're the same height. :)

janis said...

It seems misery loves company. Crap.
Can't bring myself to say "Poor little Niobe", but I feel that way, is that enough?

yummysushipajamas said...

It's interesting to be feeling bad/sad/cranky on your behalf without knowing why!

I hope all is at least generally well.

The Nanny said...

Ditto Magpie, I always pictured you as a tall woman. I'm little too (not quite 5 feet). Poor little Niobe.

the dragonfly said...

*sigh*

Awake said...

Moderately serious or not - you don't need any medical issues of any size.

So I'll add another "oh poor ..."

slouching mom said...

damn.

Julia said...

Poor, poor Niobe...
Hate sudden medical issues. Boooooo!
Can you at least drink while you get this aggressive treatment?

flutter said...

Poor Niobe. *pat pat*

painted maypole said...

oh, poor niobe. I'm sorry you have new sorrows

Yankee, Transferred said...

Hugs. Poor Little Niobe.

debbie said...

I had a shitty, shitty day as well because I also got some terrible news that I can't write about. So, I'll just say poor little Niobe & poor little Debbie (not the snack cake though, more like just barely over 5'2"). Thanks for letting me share.

Well, I am glad you offered some clarification, but it still sounds like a big bummer.

I'm sorry. I really am.

Betty M said...

Poor you. Hoping the aggressive treatment is also fast, pain free and deals with the issue completely.

Elizabeth said...

yikes. poor little niobe.

CLC said...

Crappp!!!!! Poor you. Why can't the universe just give you a break already?

Smiling said...

pobrecita.. and thanks for letting us know it was not ultrasound related...

oh why are there so many things that can, and worse do, go wrong!

Elizabeth said...

How about a nice, Southern "Bless your heart"?

Patti said...

Poor Niobe! And I will add an "That completely sucks" for good measure.

Jenny F. Scientist said...

(Consoling pat.) Poor Niobe!

Which Box said...

Huh. So you may actually be convincing me that it doesn't actually get any better.

Poor little Niobe. Hang in there.

leanne said...

So sorry, Niobe. I do hope that you can put this new medical situation behind you very soon! Take care!

Sober Briquette said...

poor you. if aggressive treatment includes cake, I'm on it.

Clementine said...

I'm with Elizabeth above: Bless your heart! Poor you, seriously.

Azaera said...

Oh no! I hope you get the best care possible and get it dealt with quickly

Amelie said...

Poor Niobe. This sucks. I'm sorry.

Furrow said...

Is this party BYOB? I'll bring a keg. Or if it suits you, a barrel.

Rachel said...

:(

Anonymous said...

I will elaborate on Elizabeth and Clementine's comments to say; Bless your sweet little heart, Niobe. This is when my husband and I say,"Would you like some worms?" (you know the " Nobody likes me..." song). Honestly though.... poor Niobe.

Aurelia said...

I hope you are okay....please elaborate someday in the future. please pretty please?

thirtysomething said...

Well, geez. Poor Niobe....

cinnamon gurl said...

How did everyone know it was medical?

And you didn't seem little to me at all...

And poor Niobe.

Lori said...

You're big to me, in the ways that matter.

Glad things turned out well.
