and so on...

I confess...it is time for another random bullet points post...

  • I've been in a lot more pain than usual, enough so that I'm looking into a specialist or at least a highly-recommended gyn. My dad got me a referral that came from his practice's malpractice attorney and is a guy they use as an expert witness. I guess a referral from a med-mal attorney is a pretty good recommendation....
  • What did Dr. Phil do before the Octomom? I don't watch his show but see ads during Jeopardy and he's done something like a dozen shows on her. I thought he was an ass before, now I just think he's plain ridiculous.
  • I have a pretty limited wardrobe so wanted to replace the pants lost to my unfortunate yogurt spilling incident. I wanted to do so on the cheap so tried TJ Maxx and Marshalls. There were maybe a total of eight pairs of pants in y size between them, none even close to work-appropriate. There were oodles in other sizes. Yes, I am smaller than average, but I am in no way abnormally small and plenty of women are my size. It's discrimination, I tell ya! I want to "never, never, ever pay full price" too!
  • I realized that most of the shows I watch regularly are crime procedurals...Bones, NCIS, CSI. I'd think this says something about me, but really think it is more about the limited range of tv shows today. There are reality shows, crime procedurals, silly comedies, teen dramas, and a few melodramatic others. Didn't TV vary more "back in the day?"
  • We watch Jeopardy regularly. Most of the tournaments (teen, college, celebrity) become "break weeks" for us because they are semi-unwatchable for fans of the regular show. The Tournament of Champions is an exception and is in progress now. There's one woman I really like....which is unusual since I don't do a whole lot of "rooting" be it in game shows or sports. Online comments are really varied, some love this woman, others are pretty negative. She just seems really smart but really quiet about it...like you could deal with her every day and not know about the mass amount of information in her head. She also has this quiet confidence to her. I think I see myself in the quiet side...and someone I'd like to be in her confidence.
  • The MBTA added some no-seat cars to alleviate crowding on my train line. I'm not sure they really do that given that you are still limited by where you can hold on. Regardless though, why do they run these at times when the train is NEVER full? I've often seen them on a particular train that starts at my stop (instead of having two stops prior, as is the norm) around 7:10 AM. Generally, people have a seat available on this train no matter when they get on. And it is certainly never the crowd-jammed mess some later trains are. Why use the high-capacity train for a low-capacity crowd??
