MAD MEN

Marten Holden Weiner has got cute, but Glen Bishop went from being a weird little kid to being a weird big kid. But it's encouraging to see kids I went to elementary and high school with who didn't have the best time as a kid growing up to be apparently emotionally healthy adults. 


THE DAY STARTED OFF BADLY

Patapsco hardly touched his food, which had me really scared, but he started eating again later in the day. Then I got a n encouraging e-mail, got a free train ride to work and R gave me his last slice of pizza.  

TODAY IS HITLER'S BIRTHDAY

It is also the 16th anniversary of the Columbine shootings and the robbery was two and a half years ago today. 

E says its also my ex-boyfriends mom's birthday. she was estonian, and wanted to change it because she didnt want to share her birthday with someone who put her in a camp when she was a teenager.... it really rattled her when those awful things happened on her birthday. she used to say she was born on a cursed day.

Watching drunks getting thrown out of bars is sometimes more entertaining than what's on TV in the bar.

IT WAS A VERY GOOD DAY


TRYING THIS AT HOME ANYWAY

For the past couple weeks I have had a sebaceous cyst behind my left ear and have been treating it with lemon oil. This isn't quite what the Promptcare doctor warned me about. The cyst has been shrinking slowly. Too bad I can't put it all over my whole body.

MMMMM, SUGAR SPIKE

Sounds like the name of a cereal:

And then there's the beast with two bums--fear it:



I'M YELLING TINDER

Too bad there is no song about Tinder. But maybe not: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p5HXQ1HFDgA

TODAY MARKS THE 20TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE OKLAHOMA CITY BOMBING.

I  remember exactly where I was and what I was doing.

BETTER CALL SAUL


Saw the season finale. Like Breaking Bad and the Sopranos they make you actually root for the bad guy.


Jimmy: you have to feel sorry for him. Worked his ass off to get his law degree, works his way up from the mailroom, performs above and beyond the call of duty and brings in millions of dollars for HMM, yet he is screwed over by his own brother and offered a very small reward.

Chuck: Even though he’s a stuck-up douchebag (Marco’s words) he’s dealing with a medical condition, real or perceived which keeps him a prisoner in his own home and keeps him from pursuing his stellar career. I can relate.

Mike: Again, I can relate—suffered a tragic loss, like Jimmy, betrayal comes from within, trying to drown his sorrows, which are pretty good swimmers. But Mike is a badass. Too bad he has to die: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jS6kAKj8R9o

I AM EXTREMELY NEARSIGHTED

My vision is about 20/700. By the time I was eight years old I was practically walking into walls and my parents accused me of looking for attention. They didn't do anything about it until they got a note from school:

The other night a guy on 18th St told me "it's because of people like you that I stay in the city."

The staph of life

Last November or December I noticed a bump on my right ring finger. It was red and hurt when I pressed it but it got smaller and stopped hurting. I pointed it out to my cardiologist in December and he seemed unimpressed so I forgot about it. Then last weekend it got bigger and redder and started hurting more and the skin around it looked shiny. I Googled it and it pointed to cellulitis, usually from a staph infection. I stuck a pin in it and yellow stuff came out. 

I was gonna wait until next week to see my primary care (I already had an appointment) but Mom and C told me to see someone NOW. So next day I went to Promptcare and the on-call doctor said had I come in earlier she would have done the same thing, but she didn't advise home surgery. 

The ringworm is still there but not spreading—she sez it may take a couple weeks :(
