#3339: That worked rather well!

So I went to Wal-Mart to get my RX.

...there was no trouble at all about it, either. I called the doc yesterday, and called Wal-Mart today to see if it was ready, and it was. 60 tablets, one refill; and since 30 tablets lasted me about six months, I think this might just be enough for a year.

Here's hoping.

But having looked at the weather radar, I figured I had plenty of time to get out to Wal-Mart and back on the motorcycle, so off I went.

Before leaving I had to hit the can; and I perused Sunday's Menards ad--and decided I'd stop in there, too, for a 5-lb sack of peanuts in the shell.

...the bike started right up and hardly needed any warmup time, compared to when it's in the sixties outside; and though it was on the gusty side I rode to Wal-Mart without incident.

Only when I got there, as I was about to turn into the parking lot, I remembered that I'd forgotten to grab my hat before leaving the house. *sigh* So I had to carry my helmet so people would understand the source of my "helmet hair".

The RX and two bottles of the mouthwash I use fit easily into the trunk. Then it was off to Menards! I found the peanuts in short order and also grabbed a big box of Little Debbie marshmallow crispy bars. (The big box--besides having more bars in it--has bigger bars; no, I don't know why.) I looked at the hats they had, thinking to perhaps buy one to leave in the bike's trunk; but they were all $8 and none of them appealed to me.

So: a 5-lb sack of peanuts, a box of marshmallow treats, two bottles of mouthwash, and my prescription--all that fit into the trunk and it closed easily. I could have fit the hat in there, too, if I'd had it with me...but not much else.

All this:



...so then I headed home, with my stomach growling at me because it had been almost five hours since I had that Ultimate Tuna Salad (UTS) sandwich. No room on board for food, though, so I rode home, unloaded the bike, and took the Jeep to Culver's.

There were ominous clouds in the sky the entire time, and I could see the rain getting closer...but none actually fell here, not even after I got home.

And now we've got a clear blue sky and light breezes.

As for me, after getting my usual from Culver's I came back to the bunker, wolfed it down, and played WoW for more than 3 hours. I got into a good random group and we hit about 40,000 instances; Ormus (on Wyrmrest Accord) got 5 levels, bumping him to 34th. Whee!

And I'm tired. Daisy-chaining instances like that is always tiring for me.

...but it's not just that. Well, last week was pretty stressful, and that "continuous elevated anxiety" stuff was incredibly tiring. Coupled with running low on Xanax--well.

I do think I've probably got some kind of low-level respiratory crud, though. It's about the right time for the "spring sinusitis" that normally gets me, and I've had a few symptoms; more worrisome is the nonspecific URI that's apparently making the rounds of the churchfolk right now. I may be incubating that nonsense right now; though I hope I'm not it would explain a lot.

*sigh*

I had rather expected this sort of thing to crop up much sooner than this. In 2008 I was predicting that the mainstream media's hagiographic coverage of Obama--and their refusal to do any investigation of him--would end up hurting them in the long run.

Actually, I predicted that the media would turn on Obama in order to regain their own credibility; that they'd suddenly start being extra-hard on the guy to make up for going so easy on him before.

I wasn't surprised to be wrong about that; I'm rarely surprised when I'm wrong because I've had so much practice at it. But I did say that if the media didn't start pounding Obama that way they'd end up losing viewers/readers due to the erosion of their credibility.

That much, at least, has happened--at least in the case of CNN. CNN pulled 357,000 viewers in April, in the US--compare that with Fox News' 1.1 million.

...and now I'm thinking about having a UTS sandwich and taking a nap. Man, WTF.
