...having asymptomatic diverticulosis as I do, I was advised (at the time of diagnosis) to avoid nuts and stuff. Advice which I heeded at first, but as time went on gradually forgot about, and later learned that nuts are actually okay for folks with diverticulosis anyway.
So last week I bought that 5-lb monster sack of roasted-in-the-shell peanuts. Yesterday, between breakfast and dinner, I was hungry, and ended up eating a bunch of peanuts instead of having something less snacky and more foody.
Well, the resulting "output" has left me feeling like I ought to feel. The usual heavy discomfort in my sigmoid colon--which is a feature of my daily life, and has been for 15 years--is absent again, as it so rarely is. This is how it is for most people all the time: there's no sensation of anything going on in the lower abdomen.
I think all the fiber from eating--essentially--a meal of peanuts has cleaned things out a bit.
2) Best Buy:
The Best Buy closest to the Fungal Vale is closing, and it's closing May 12. I didn't really think much about the news that Best Buy was going to close stores but I should have realized that meant the Matteson store would be closing, because Lincoln Mall really is on the downside curve of popularity of shopping centers.
Malls have life cycles like anything else, after all. Most people go to Orland Park or River Oaks to do their shopping because that's where all the really big stores are, and they're more numerous to boot.
Well, that's how it goes, I guess.
Anyway, so Best Buy sent me a $10 off coupon. I'm thinking, now, about whether or not that would put a new hard drive into the "doable" range for me. El-Hazard could use a larger drive, but I'm also thinking about grabbing a 2 TB drive and using it to back up all the anime on Cephiro.
I don't know. *sigh* If I'd just get a job....
(Well--haircut on Friday from a woman in my Bible study group, and I'll look less Neanderthal-y and more Cro-Magnon-y. That ought to help.)
