Not The Primary Doctor

So, not only have I been sweating a lot more since I've been taking the prednisone, but the condo has just been full of moisture this summer. The upshot was that after 40 minutes of trying, I couldn't get a bra on today and I called and cancelled my appointment with the primary. I didn't really need it because the rheumatologist ordered the tests I needed on Monday. I finally realized that I could put the bra in the dryer and me in my chenille robe and after about 20 minutes, we were both dry enough to be successfully joined.

I dropped a DVD off at the post office drive-by box and went on to Uno's for lunch. While there, I was thinking that I could come home and strike out the primary appointment on my week's schedule when I "saw" below it Chem7, so I stopped at Kaiser on the way home and got stuck.

I already had an idea of what might be making the condo damp, since it hasn't been like this any of the other 17 summers I've owned it -- I looked up in the shower the other day with my glasses on and saw wrinkled paint right where I had a leak almost exactly two years ago. So when I got home, I called MyPlumber and they're coming either tonight or tomorrow and will call me tonight to say which.

I got a call from Kaiser Member Services and I do need to get the Medical Records of both ERs before they'll pay the helicopter. Calling them is okay, but I don't know if I can actually walk through the hospitals to get copies of the records, and I'll have to pay for them. I also had a call from the mortgage guy telling me that my refinancing is still in process, it's just a long process because they're doing so many of them.

Layer Cake

Does every UKan movie need Colm Meaney? Not that he's a bad actor, I've just become used to him showing up.

The main character in this one is played by Daniel Craig. He's a drug dealer and he'd like to get out of the business so he steals a gigantic amount of ecstacy and is trying to sell it. But he's getting chased by the original owners, different dealers, and stray people who'd like to get in on the deal. The chasing and deals become more and more interwoven until you're sure it's never going to work out, but there's a moment near the end...

Not a bad movie, and definitely something to keep you from dealing drugs.
