Update on Me

So. I went to my general practitioner Tuesday. She gave me some pain meds. I went on eBay to see if any of Michael Jackson's painkillers might be up for bid, but I guess it's too early. She also read the orthopedic surgeon's notes. According to those, my ankle is healing and he wants to see me again in a month to do some x-rays and an MRI before he decides to operate or not. That was news to me. He didn't tell me ANY of that! So, I see him again at the end of July. I don't know about anyone else out there, but I've had a belly-full of Michael Jackson. Even Fox News has been wall-to-wall Jacko. But, I guess that's why we have Animal Planet. Anyway, the death of Farrrah Fawcett didn't get nearly enough coverage -- and neither did any other story in the news since Jacko met his predictable and long-awaited end. I found an app this week to turn my iPhone into an XM radio. However, the service doesn't carry Fox News or Radio Classics, so I'm not going to pay the extra $3 a month for something I'll hardly listen to anyway. All for the better, because I have pledged never to be one of those doofuses with white wires trailing out of his ears.

I'm so thoroughly disgusted with the effusive media outburst concerning MJ, contrasted with the virtual ignorance of Farrah Fawcett's much more dignified life and death that I posted an entire blog entry highlighting the difference. Farrah deserves much more tribute than that pedophile freak, in my opinion.

I think I'd ask the surgeon why he didn't tell you any of that. That's just weird, especially since kind of positive news. :\

I'm glad I've not been watching much news lately. Let me know when it's safe to go back in. :)
