Random (but not really)

Friday, February 29, 2008


It’s 37 degrees outside and has been raining all day.

We’d planned to go see the Arianna Huffington talk tonight, but it’s so crudy I don’t want to leave the house.

I could hope that it clears up, but it looks like we’re going to have crappy whether when we drive to Parkersburg tomorrow to visit my brother & his wife.

Maybe I’ll go crawl into bed with a book and pull the covers over my head and just ignore the weather.

And speaking of being blue…

I had my last happy doctor appointment this week. The guy who I was seeing is graduating in June, and is moving onto another rotation, and we talked and decided that really I’ve been handling things well since November, but have been too nervous about things going on in my life to go without training wheels, so to speak.

But although I have been down, it’s really to be expected, considering the death and illness I have been surrounded by for the past several months. And I’m doing everything I’m supposed to, to deal with the stress.

Basically, I just have to work through what’s been happening in it’s own time. The meds are taking the edge off, and allowing me the peace of mind to deal with the stress, so I’m not going over the edge. I have all the tools I need to get through this, I just have to be patient and work through everything.

So if I’m a little more down than usual, I’m allowed to be. Because I know that I’m going to come out the other side okay.

27 March

Today’s deaths:

William F Buckley Jr.

But of local interest, Myron Cope has died at the age of 72.

I may not have liked his voice but I liked him for what he did. And fans for tonight’s Pitt game are requested to bring Terrible Towels to remember Cope.

Think Geek has just added some Princess Bride t-shirts.


Plus, one of my favorites is still available. If only I had an office mate…

Festival of Ideas

The first speaker for WVU’s Festival of Ideas has been posted.

Arianna Huffington will speak this Friday at the Mountainlair at 7:30PM. She spoke here several years ago (you’ll have to search, since I wasn’t using blogging software at that point, so didn’t have permalinks) for the same series, and I thoroughly enjoyed her talk. She’s a very dynamic and vivacious speaker, so if you have the chance, you may want to take the time to hear her talk.

And hopefully we’ll have a better idea who else is speaking soon.

Still Rabies

Every couple years I stumble back upon Rum & Monkey’s. While there I always take the horrible affliction test.

As usual, I’m Rabies.

I am Rabies. Grrrrrrrr!
Which Horrible Affliction are you?
A Rum and Monkey disease.

Happy Tuesday to you!

ADDENDUM the First:
More tests under the cut
