Well, that was fun. Not really.

I feel like I’ve dri­ven across the state, when I real­ly spent very lit­tle time in the car today—for an Atlantan.

We went to see Katie’s doc­tor, fill­ing out the inevitable “It’s Jan­u­ary!” paper­work. Do they think peo­ple always move from one Janau­ry to the next, or what? I mean, when we sign in, there’s a form that asks if there’s been any change in our con­tact infor­ma­tion or insur­ance, and we say “No,” unless the answer is “Yes,” in which case we ask for the forms so that we can update the records. Appar­ent­ly cur­rent admin­is­tra­tive thought is that clients can­not be trust­ed that far, so they make us do all the forms again every Jan­u­ary. In every office. Between me and Katie, that’s a lot of extra forms being filled out for no par­tic­u­lar reason.

We picked up pre­scrip­tions in two places. We dropped off pre­scrip­tions. We went to the bank. We dropped off a util­i­ty pay­ment to avoid the elec­tron­ic pay­ment fee. I know we did some­thing else, but my mind is gone.
Con­tin­ue read­ing “Well, that was fun. Not real­ly.”

Gadgetry — I have a digital leash again!

I has a phone! It’s tiny and thin and pret­ty. It was sup­posed to be able to take a mini-SD card so I could store music on it, but they lied. The Nokia also had a radio tuner, and this phone does­n’t. The only oth­er phone the cell insur­ance peo­ple had avail­able was a Sam­sung with crap­py reviews and few­er features.

This Motoro­la is lighter than the Nokia I drowned in cof­fee, though, so it’ll be eas­i­er for me to hold it. It works with my Blue­tooth head­set and talks to my PC via Blue­tooth, too.

I love the lit­tle head­set. It nudges my glass­es just a bit, so it does slip off on occa­sion. That makes me wish I could wear con­tacts again, as it would be well worth the tradel
