The plan was simple. Pick up tze bebe, drive by the hospital, keep her amused while I get checked out, and head home.

Of course, having no regular doctor (I know, I know) I had to hit the emergency room. Which means waiting, in fact, about an hour (to their credit, they had an actual emergency there.) So, an hour of chasing bebe all over the room. She was in good spirits and not irritating anyone, but a constant bucket of movement.

Hour later, finally get seen. Collapse ) All done, they bandage me up, and I start to get all light-headed. At which point I realize that since it took so long, I was late for my medication, and thusly I hadn't eaten in a while either, and in fact spent an hour walking and chasing a bebe, which counts as the exercise the dentist told me to avoid for a couple days. I don't actually pass out, but whee, no fun, that. Funniest part was, I was lying down on the gurney waiting for the room to stop spinning, and bebe was sitting next to me, happily amusing herself by shaking my pill bottle (which she stole from me moments before) like a rattle.

So, yeah. One more footnote in the awesome week I've been having.

Oh. And. This new round of antibiotics will last like even longer, meaning it looks like I'll be off the boozamahol for a few weeks. Feh. I'll have some catching up to do thereafter.

So, the last CoH character I made, I started a Dark Melee/regeneration scrapper just on a lark, to see why they were so popular?

Just hit 24th last night, officially making him my highest level character. It's that efficient. And, honestly, fun.

Went for the second costume mission... and the cape!

Updating a lot of pics on the page this weekend, probably cleaning it up some too, etc.

"All of the above may be true, but political prognosticators sometimes forget that average folks don't follow every twist and turn of Beltway infighting. So keep in mind: Gas prices have been rising. The stock market has been in a swoon. The economy is not exactly inspiring confidence. All that has got to be hurting Bush. When people feel economic anxiety - and see that their leaders appear more obsessed with one brain-damaged woman, parliamentary procedures and fiddling with their retirement money - that's when you suffer in the polls."

Supermarkets are the new frontier in bookselling.

Oh, hee. Bush prods locals on Splash Day.

What about a no-smoking-allowed concert? (Hey, I might be hitting that one, funkay.)
