Had a good checkup with the doctor, who told me that she noticed a definite change in my mood, and that I was happy and energetic. She put me on a liquid diet for at least the coming month, probably longer since I have so much weight to lose. She still wasn't able to get a weight on me on the balance scale in the office, but I'm certain that I've lost at least two inches around the midsection, about which she was happy. Not nearly as happy as I was, though.

I'm watching the end of The Blues Brothers on AMC. They just finished the car chase, where they park in front of City Hall and the car disintegrates when they get out. Right now, the cops are trying to break down the doors. I don't know why they don't just run around the block to the LaSalle Street entrance (technically the County Building) and go in that way...

I've been on the computer all day. I don't need to be on it all evening as well. You all have a good time.

The Blues Brothers brought back some very fond memories, particularly of going to see Koko Taylor and her band at Biddy Mulligan's on the far north side of Chicago on Friday nights...they called her the Wang Dang Doodle Girl because she did this tune...
