The next review item on my agenda is ADVENTURELAND on Blu-ray. I will watch the movie and whatever bonus features I can manage this afternoon. I'll finish it when I get in from the hospital tonight. Since I only have RESCUE ME on television tonight, I won't even need to turn on the cable box to watch regular TV this evening. I can finish the work disc and come upstairs and start on the review. That will certainly make for a different kind of Tuesday evening.

Thanks, all, for the positive thoughts about my MRI today. I had a rocky (not the movie) night and woke up very queasy this morning although some Coke to settle my stomach and some yougurt have made me feel much better.

I left the driver's license thing open to how I was feeling, but obviously, I didn't make it there this morning. I haven't even showered yet,

I watched the MAD MEN season opener on Demand last night.  Most intriguing and entertaining, although the takeover by the British firm seems to be a rather tired plot device that will lead to angst but not necessarily anything really interesting.  The writers had barely begun to explore the office politics of the people we already knew.

I was most intrigued by the new "Miss Moneypenny" character. I'm intrigued to see what the writers do with him.

Thank you, DR td. I'm sure my blood pressue is going to go through the roof when I get there. I do not handle new situations like this at all well.

It's a lovely morning here.
When I got out of bed, I glanced out my window, there was a doe standing near my driveway.  She must've heard the sounds of me rising, for she looked up at my window for a few moments then went back to munching leaves.

So nice that Miss Dixie Bell and I have already had our cemetery run!  We stopped on the way at the Post Office where the postmistress was taking care of her flowers.  Dixie Bell loves meeting new people, and Rhonda even gave her a doggie treat.

I was looking at my new Maltin guide this morning and found that I must take it back to Borders:  the "L"s start with "Li" goes onto the "M"s, then repeats the "Li - lu" entries.  Quite strange.

That is funny. I posted after only reading to the end of page 1. And DR Elmore and i wrote the exact same thing about ear plugs.

See if the place has better ones. Not sure if they would give regular ones or a headset with music or something.

DR MattH, don't let it stress you out. As long as you're not claustrophobic it shouldn't be that bad. And maybe your place has the one that is open on the sides.

Yes he is making quite a stir doing the wrong things on both ends so to speak - so we shall see.

I had an MRI and actually found lying in that big tube quite relaxing.

I am home sick today. No vibes needed, however. It is just a mild cold or allergies. My sister thinks something is pressing on my brain, but I am not really sure what she meant by that.

Oh, sure, NOW you tell you me.  :)  They would have helped as much for the "soft rock" coming through the headphones as for the actual MRI noise.

Tuesday morning greetings!  I slept quite late today, after being awake in the wee hours of the morning with a slight stomach upset - go figure.

A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the Dear Mother of DR Ginny!!!!     :D  :D  :D

DR DAW, today is the birthday of my DEAR SISTER, but I'm wondering if you're following the custom of sending the birthday wishes to the person who did all the work!  I used to know someone who always celebrated her own birthday by sending flowers to her mother.

Well, with all the tsuris we've been experiencing, I thought we could use some levity, so I'm thinking about starting a new HHW tradition, the daily Onion headline.  Today's headline, from April 9, 1942:
