Code Orange Again

Code Orange and I went out carefully because I had an appointment with my primary doctor. That bit of a cold that I've had for a few months has blocked my right ear for the last two weeks so I'm having trouble hearing at all. She thinks it's the junk from my nose that's doing the blocking and ordered Flonase and told me to get Zyrtec. After two weeks, I'm to call her and tell her how they're working.

There was a line of 10 people at the pharmacy, so I just came home and called the mail pharmacy and asked them to mail it and they will.

She also asked me about a colonoscopy or sigmoidoscopy and I was about halfway through telling her I couldn't do the prep myself when she finished the sentence. She suggested a barium enema, which I've had before, and while they're not the most pleasant type of imaging, I can definitely handle my part.

I picked up two days of mail on Wednesday and got all three Netflix discs. I decided to watch the one I sent back before and the machine thought it wasn't a disc. The machine didn't like another disk, or the disk cleaner. I know what this is: the laser has died. I know this because I called them a couple years ago with the same problem six days before they wouldn't fix it. Clearly it's been a lot longer than six days.

I decided to watch it on the other machine, but at first, the VCR part kept pushing the tape in and out and the DVD wouldn't come on. Then I saw it almost all the way out and grabbed it, wiggled a little, and it came out. Just the very first length is crinkled, so I'll try one of the other tapes I've used in case it dies again. So right now I have VCR on one machine, DVD and maybe VCR on another, and VCR on an old machine without a digital tuner.

After I post the DVD review, I'm taking a nap. I had some trouble reading a minute ago.

    Not cold enough to wear a coat -- I wore a turtleneck under a heavy sweater today -- but it looks like we've had the last of the warm. I picked up a…
