Well.

Woke up at 11 or so this morning, to find that the Student Loan Fairy had come in the night. Quickly disbursed funds to my creditors, reducing our total debt by a significant amount.
I need to fill out and return my St. Francis application, hoping that they still have room in their Family Practise Externship. It'd be just a little extra money, a couple hundred a month to spend on entertainment, gas, and toys, and the stuff I'd learn would be invaluable!
Have not eaten today; need to get blood drawn for lipid profile and fasting glucose. I suppose I should do that.

Will return later, to pass the day in rest - since the good doctors D&D haven't called me back yet. I needed at least one day off anyway. Starting to feel a little better.

Random, extremely random.

Random LJ surf got me this article. I just stared at it in total shock. I didn't know what else to do.Tell me it's not real. And I know it is.

Took Angel to the doctor for his headaches. Now he has Zomig, and nasal sprays, and a migraine diagnosis. And he's feeling better. I should get my diagnosis sometime. Or I could just wait until the Benadryl-Aleve combination stops working. So far, it's been pretty effective.

Am currently moderately annoyed with the poster of this sterling piece. If one intends to correct misconceptions, one should check one's facts. My response can be found here.
Please note, Atkins dieters: This isn't about whether cutting out carbs and eating a high-protein, high-fat diet will help you lose weight. That's a topic for another day, and for some people it works. There is sound reasoning behind many of the conjectures the Atkins diet is based on. There are also some metabolic questions that are called to mind, most notably by nephrologists. This is just about making statements that are out-and-out incorrect. Annoys the hell out of me.
