Re: My dear Joon...

Well, I'll be 63 tomorrow. I'm hoping that my former doctor will give me a year's worth of scripts, enough to get me to the age 64. Then I'll figure out how to get to 65 and Medicare. Already, I'm seeing that they're messing with that - the people we didn't vote for, you know, insurance companies. I...

Re: My dear Joon...

The doctor's office called yesterday to tell me that the echo was good. I figured, since nobody had called, but I cancelled my next appointment with her. It's easy to understand that maybe your initial visit might be a couple of hours. At first, I thought that would be once I was back in examining r...

Re: My dear Joon...

The Honey and I went through the whole DVR and removed a bunch of shows. I was really surprised by his choices because he'd watched some of these for years - ones like Criminal Minds , Madame Secretary , Blacklist and Hawaii 5-0 - but I'm glad. When I saw that Mandy Patinkin was leaving CM because h...

Re: My dear Joon...

I've deleted Dirk Gently... from the DVR. I watched it last season. Like Wilfred , I can't figure out what's going on, but unlike it, I did care about the characters. I was actually looking forward to it. But I just feel cold after last night. Things are insane enough, quite frankly, and I would rea...

Re: My dear Joon...

I went for an echo-cardiogram... My D.O. - that's doctor of osteopathy to those who might not know - sent me to a local hospital for it. They have you disrobe to the waist, then they put those stickers on that get these leads connected to them. And then they do an ultrasound, with the gel and the co...

Re: My dear Joon...

Let me see. There's been so much that's happened. Our last maintenance man has left for greener pastures. The new property management has closed the office permanently, which I don't mind telling you, those of us who have lived here for the greater part of our lives, truly resent. No exotic pets, by...

Voting

brutereason: I wonder from where so many Americans get the idea that voting is supposed to be some expression of your deepest, most beloved values and virtues rather than a pragmatic, political move meant to shift your country as much closer to your ideal as possible. This strikes me as another exa...

Today is Day 264 and counting, of the winter of our discontent... It's worse than I thought it could be - he's worse than I ever imagined - and it's evident where the weaknesses are in the Constitution. It's not the fault of the Founding Fathers; they had every right to assume, and I mean, well, why...

kintatsujo: nathanielthecurious: Yesterday I passed a group of four young girls selling cookies on the corner. “Would you like to buy some Girl Scout cookies?” asked one of them, who was probably twelve or thirteen.

Re: Lord of the Rings - the Informative, the Cute & Trivial

sophiamcdougall: poorquentyn: It puzzles me when people cite LOTR as the standard of “simple” or “predictable” or “black and white” fantasy. Because in my copy, the hero fails. Frodo chooses the Ring, and it’s only Gollum’s own desperation for it that inadvertently saves the day. The fate of the wo...
