Saw the neurologist today, or should I say that he saw me. Spitting image of my brother-in-law. 2nd dan Taekwon-do. Turns out the whole shebang may be laid out to migraines. I don't have headaches. I had one about 5 years ago and it felt like somebody had jammed a white hot spear into my head. Nothing since then but what I have which I thought was all unrelated but the Dr. assures me is consistent with multiple parts of my brain throwing a hissy fit. Can't type, sleep, keep eyes open, dizzy, fall down, loss of s/a. and zero pain....unless, God help me, I spin into one of the end tables on the way down. He gave me some pills the size of a super tanker to deal with further outbreaks.

I told him I went a whole week without any symptoms at all when my girl was here and he recommended that I keep her around. If only I could I would.

Discovery of the pure fun of boogie boarding in a wet suit.

I see Dallas drivers are among the worst drivers in America. Too bloody True! They tailgate on the interstate at 70mph with about 4 feet of following distance. Bunch of bastards if you ask me.

At some point this week the IRS in Atlanta sent me a letter telling me that their records showed I entered a combat zone back in 2008 and they needed more details. I never claimed any tax exemption for it or mentioned it in my return for that year..... but they caught up with me.

Well that was fun and interesting. Sarah Palin's Tea Party nominee just won the GOP nomination in Alaska. 2 and counting. Somebody has coat tails!
