- My cholesterol numbers were slightly blown out of proportion when first told to me. They're bad, but in comparison to 2003, they're actually an improvement.
- The blood work that I was told might be done will in fact happen...in six months. I went hungry all of last night for NOTHING!
- As you might expect, I was told I need to exercise more. The doctor termed this "therapeutic lifestyle modification." Stop already with the buzzwords! It's good that he explained exactly what this meant before using the term; had he not, I would have interpreted it using my normal thought process, and he would have been telling me I need to get laid more. (Which in my case means get laid, period.) This term isn't as bad as "administrative deliverables," which had been floating around the boat last month.
"Operation Baseball" continues tonight in the west end of Boston. The timing couldn't be better, as Mark Teixiera debuts for the Angels at Fenway this evening. The challenge is, of course, to ensure the Nation doesn't tear me to shreds should my true allegiance be uncovered.
