anything but pleasant

Remember the 3 1/2" needle in my hip joint? I went to Sinai Hospital in Baltimore today and got the 3 1/2" needle again - in BOTH hips! (But afterwards we stopped for ice cream-which makes everything better.)

why you should insist on a copy of your medical records

Remember this test? I was *told* I didn't have a tear in the labrum (cartilage) of my hip. Three months later, I read the radiologist's report...

I think I need some sort of organizational system...

arlington cinema drafthouse

We saw Spiderman 3, ate some nasty french fries, chicken tenders, and a quesadilla (all of which tasted like hamburger grease), and drank a pitcher of Hook & Ladder.

welcome to new jersey

Driving up to NJ, I encountered plumes of black smoke and orange fireballs jumping above the treeline. Turns out a Sunoco tank farm caught on fire when it was struck by lightning.

Time for a refreshing g&t.

We saw these cool lotus blooms at Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens. They have these crazy seed pods that look like alien showerheads.

time to tame the mane

Today our office was evacuated due to a carbon monoxide build-up. So I left, and decided it was time to chop the mop. I was going to post an "after" picture, but I ended up having way too much fun taking photos with my little magnifiying mirror...
