Sitting Up Straight

I dropped a DVD off at the post office today and went on to Kaiser where I expected to spend about 30 minutes. I spent two hours sitting up straight. I was scheduled to have the last nebupent treatment today, but after I'd been there about 30 minutes (ran into a friend from bookgroup and talked a bit), I asked one of the aides to remind the nurses I had the treatment. Turned out the nurses who did it before weren't there and the nurse who was didn't even know about the appointment. He hadn't done it and had to collect everything from lots of places. There's a much nicer negative-pressure room, but it was still sitting up too long. I had a repeat thyroid test, too.

On the way home a car of young men yelled TIRE! so I stopped at the shop on the way home, and they checked and said the tires were fine. I came home and cooled off on the bed. I expect to decamp to the recliner every so often while I'm online tonight because I hurt a lot.

The WashPost TV Week says Warehouse 13, which is debuting tonight, is about Secret Service agents collecting paranormal objects so the Earth won't die. Argh. I've giving it one try. It also said the reason the channel changed its name to SyFy was because they couldn't copyright SciFi.

Today's WashPost Health section notes two studies that show obese people live as long as normal-weight people and longer than skinny people. But then it goes on to say that the people in the studies weren't taken down to just one problem or not taking cholesterol. This is wrong, because neither did the original studies that think being fat is bad for you.
