An Enlarged Heart

"Maybe you're just a really kind person" the doctor said. I have too many possible reasons for this, many coming with the treatment for this stroke, so he ordered another diuretic and a fancy nuclear medicine test up in Maryland. I left a message on the scheduler's voice mail. I still see the abdominal wall wound specialist tomorrow and need to make the appointments for the endometrial biopsy. I feel a little out of control, as my last dream this morning showed:

I was in a little town on a river in charge of a giant elephant and I lost the elephant.

I voted today and was the 19th person who'd done so at about 1pm. I guessed I'd be one of 20 at our poll, so it'll probably be higher than I expected.

It's raining like crazy at the moment; I hope it cools things down!

Guess Who

This is a nice romantic comedy that rather liberally inverts the classic Guess Who's Coming to Dinner. Ashton Kutchner plays the white boy who meets his black girlfriend's (Zoe Saldana) family. Bernie Mac is excellent as the angry father. It's been updated and massaged a bit, but still clearly addresses two kinds of people with different racial backgrounds. I liked it.
