Yeah, I’m still sick. Here is a run down of what has been going in on the last few days.

Thursday I wasn’t feeling well. By Friday morning, after my bike ride to work, I didn’t feel well. By Friday afternoon I was REALLY not feeling well. I locked up my bike at work and my wife picked me up. Feeling terrible, I fell asleep quickly.

Waking up near noon, I was in terrible shape. I had a doctor’s appointment and set off to get some help. I saw a new doctor and she was great. The kind of doctor that became a doctor to HELP people. So she fixes me up with a prescription or three and sends in the nurse to give me some injections. I start to roll up my shirt sleeve, when she says, “Uh, uh honey. Lower those trowsers.” This is gonna hurt. “Which side?” I asked the nurse. “Both sides. I’m all about equal opportunity.” Great. So yeah, the injections to my backside felt like a wasp sting. Times two. Afterwards I told the nurse, “I would thank you, butt …”(pun intended). She said I would thank her in a few hours when I felt better. After spending $125 for medication (sick isn’t cheap) I was headed home to sleep some more.

Actually that is all I have been doing is sleeping. And reading books. I have just finished “Inside Scientology” by Janet Reitman. The reviews for the book are great. I wasn’t sure if I would enjoy the book, but I have to say, this is a good book. No I am not thinking of joining the group. But the book tells a great story of what exactly went on inside Scientology. You can read it as well, FREE, from the Memphis Library e-book section.

Although I haven’t watched much t.v., I did watch the movie Hugo. Great movie. Check it out. The movie is not what you think it is. The film reminded me of the movie “Amelie” which I also enjoyed. I also have watched some of the movie “Inception”. I have to. The film is on cable every single day it seems like. I did like “Inception” as well. The soundtrack is good. I was never the one to like DeCaprio, until this movie.

How about a blast from one year ago (when I wasn’t so sick)? Here I am having a beer one year ago for St. Patricks Day.

I would LOVE to be celebrating again today, but it will have to wait until I can kick this sickness. If you are celebrating, have one for me.

Alright, it is time for more medication; but before I go, check out THIS event. (and it you want me to mention YOUR event, send me a quick note)
