dead wombat

gonna reach down between my legs...ease the seat back

So after buying all those cold & flu meds yesterday, I decided to just rely on painkillers from here on out. Whatever's afflicting me, it's not clogging my sinuses, so the decongestants really aren't doing much for me. Got Valerie to bring up my laundry from the basement and eventually give her a lift to the grocery store, where she shopped for herself and Mom and managed to ring up a $97 tab. Oy.

I didn't get over to the hospital to visit my friend Richard today, but considering that I'm still struggling with the Swedish Death Flu that wasn't really a good idea anyway. We'll see if I feel well enough to go to the last Nationals game at RFK tomorrow.

Some local flavor; DCPS Chancellor Michelle Rhee talks about her job.

For the benefit of P and RS: some background on the Jena mess.
InstaPunk weighs in regarding the political angle, and Baldilocks comments.

You know, if McCain keeps doing stuff like this, he might change my mind. Might.

John Stossel speaks with my mouth when it comes to the health insurance mess.

some slow improvement

I had hoped to get up this morning, clean up, eat breakfast, and make it over to RFK for the last Nationals game there, but it just wasn't on. I've spent most of the day either laying around in a semi-catatonic state or reading Hackers. This is likely to continue, since as much as I thought the fresh air was good for me yesterday, I think it may actually have prolonged matters.

Good news/bad news: Got a refund check from the vein specialist I was seeing, and a notice from MN Revenue that they're going to garnish my wages to collect the $1100 the Campaign Finance Board thinks I owe them. Guess I'll be seeing them in court over that, which means I'll be returning to the Twin Towns of Terror sooner than I planned. Everybody wants my damn money. >:(
