06:03 pm: Another Brain Seizure
I've still got DSL so I won't mention it again unless it stops working again.

Spirit started trying to wake me up at 7:38am and I told her I needed at least four more hours of sleep and she ignored me and kept waking me up. I moved out to the recliner because she will sleep on me there and let me sleep and when the alarm beeped, I turned it off and slept another hour. This is slightly ironic since I cut out a Rhymes With Orange comic (not online yet) where the woman is sitting up in bed showing a cat an alarm clock and saying "Again, when the big hand is on the twelve and the little hand is on the seven... then you can walk on my face."

I checked online and my CK is right in the middle of normal, so no problem there. I went to PetSmart to get cat stuff, got gas, and decided to eat at a buffet I had a coupon for. I don't normally eat at buffets (carrying plate logistics, plus usually not very good food), but the regular price was good and my brother eats an enormous amount of food so I decided to try it. I brought my plate back to the table and after a couple bites of broccoli, I started to lose contact with the world. I was able to hold it, I was never unconscious, but I couldn't see things for a few minutes. Then the restaurant looked weird and that was better in a couple more minutes. I finished my plate (most of what they had was fried or waterlogged, so we're not going there) and came home.

I used Kaiser's website to email my neurologist about it and just got an answer from the nurse saying that since the doctor won't see it until Monday, I should call Advice and be evaluated at urgent care. I'm not going to do that -- the doctor has told me before I don't need to do that. As long as they're like this, I just need to tell her.

Do you know I went to high school with Hilary Price (who writes RwO)? I saw her at our recent 20th reunion, and told her that "Mom's clipping service" sent me the one with the snake reading "Anyone can knit" and the caption "Leonard was hopeful." She laughed and said she'd had that one made up as a postcard - then she sent me the postcard to my office!

Neat! I had another one clipped out from a few years ago, but there's no good place to stick it next to the desk with this furniture arrangement. It's called The Horizontal State and a woman is lying on a psychiatrist's couch and says "My friends and family are worried that I spend all day in bed. My cats, however, presented me with a lifetime membership to their species."

Were you worried about driving? Or -- you mentioned your brother, was he driving?

I do hope it's nothing.

No, I wasn't worried, although maybe I should have been. These were all word related until the last two (as the med reaches therapeutic level) and the word ones all started like this (and I was reading the coupon). I've never had two in a row, or even two in a week, though. The neurologist hasn't said anything about driving. I'd be really unhappy about that.

I should have been more clear about my brother -- he and his family come to visit and take me out to lunch twice a year. I like to choose restaurants they don't have down there and I have a list of restaurants that I've gone to and are fine (and am crossing those off as we go to them) and a list of possible restaurants that I'm trying out. They don't have a lot of money and my niece thinks Taco Bell is the best restaurant in the world, so I'm looking for moderate food and price. This buffet has been marked off the possible list.
