Random Musings

  • I'm home sick with an upper respiratory infection this morning. I was supposed to be singing with my church's praise team this morning, but that wouldn't work. I also had to miss the Vocal Majority's annual banquet last night, which is a bummer. If that doesn't tell you how gross I feel, consider this: I went to a medical clinic yesterday morning, and some other customer had given them four tickets to a Dallas Stars game yesterday afternoon. None of the clinic workers could go, and I was offered the tickets. I turned them down!
  • For my URI, I've been given (among others) a really weird prescription -- for "Magic Mouthwash." Anyone else ever have this stuff? It's not a brand, doesn't come in a prelabeled bottle, but it actually said "Magic Mouthwash" on the prescription pad and the same is typed on the Walgreens label on the bottle. It's something I gargle for my sore throat, a liquid mixture of Benadryl, Maalox, and Lidocaine. As you might expect, it numbs my mouth pretty quickly.
  • I'm slowly adding to our Disney trip report, so check there often. I've also started posting full-size pictures, more than can go with the trip report, over at Webshots.
  • It's been a while since I plugged Stupid Guest Tricks, a great group of people, most of whom have ties to Disney or other theme parks. You can find some very entertaining stories of the idiots that walk among us there. I'm in the midst of posting Stupid Guest spottings from my recent trip on this thread.
  • I have a new car. I did not want a new car, but I have one. My beloved little PT Cruiser broke a timing belt just before Christmas and destroyed its engine, meaning it quickly became an expensive paperweight. I found a wonderful little Honda Civic online and bought it the same day, but I didn't have the time I usually take to get excited about a new car. So... I've been warming to it slowly. It has a long sloped windshield and a digital dash that makes me feel I'm in some futuristic space vehicle, which the Star Trek geek in me likes. I also like that its radio can play CD-Rs loaded with MP3's, so I can copy 8 or 9 albums onto a single CD.
  • On the other hand, it's only after my PT Cruiser is gone that my wife Becky admits that she always thought it looked "weird."
  • I feel the need to lie down, so... I'm going to post another segment of the trip report and then crash. If I make it that long.

Sorry you feel crappy. I wish my CD play would play MP3s.
