I got up early this morning and went and had my blood drawn for all of the tests that the doctor ordered. I missed the place the first time and had to double back to get back to it. Needless to say, I'm doing this at morning rush hour, when the drivers are so understanding. (It also didn't help that it was dark out. By the time I got back to where I was supposed to turn, I realized why I had missed it the first time: the sign sports a sort of gray on black color scheme, hard enough to see at dawn, damned near impossible just before dawn.)
The new TV came on Wednesday, and I got it all set up with the DVD/VCR and everything. I'm accustomed to the old TVs, where you would set it to channel 3 (or 4) in order to play a video. This one has an actual video mode that I have to switch into in order to use the DVD or VCR. It only took me a couple of days to figure that out. Duh.
I also got my new glasses. I think they're rather sporty looking. Obviously, it's a matter of getting used to them, because they feel different on my face than the old ones did (not quite as tight at the temples). But, I like them, and they come with magnetic clip-on sunglasses, which are great.
I'm not leaving for my next trip until Monday morning (I'm on my way to Fremont, CA, for a couple of days), so I don't have to run out to the printer and get everything printed tonight. I only need half a dozen copies of everything, anyway, and it's a smaller book than usual, which I'm very happy about, because it means far less crap that I have to take with me. Of course, I get to pack all of the supplements and vitamins for a short trip (I'm coming home on the redeye Wednesday night; I hope Delta has changed its policy of showing movies on those flights), which oughta be right fun.
I had some other observations about TV, but I'll put them in another post. Gotta go check dinner.
