Anticipation...

Lessee, after my last post, I surfed for a while, then slept.

Then I considered getting some food, and even laid out some clean clothes for after my shower.

But instead, I decided to do something different, and slept.

Everyone needs a hobby.

I woke up today around 10:00am, I think. Surprisingly, by 11:00am or so, I was out of the shower, and on the phone to Kaiser.

I've got to give them some credit. After 5 levels of phone menu, giving my member number twice, explaining my symptoms twice, and eventually being disconnected while on hold, a nurse from Opthamology called me back after a mere 20 minute wait.

She had my name reversed, and I had to explain myself again, but I have an appointment this afternoon at 2:30pm. I'm hoping either (1) it turns out to be nothing or (2) it's a fast treatment nowadays. My mom went through a long, long mess over retinal detachment.

But it is whatever it is.

On a happier note, I checked the mail today, and the settlement check had arrived. Not only arrived, but it was 60% larger than I expected.

Of course, after the initial rush of joy, I started thinking about unfun things I needed to pay with it, like, say, taxes...

My first destination this morning was therefore the credit union. It'll come off hold just a few days after Christmas.

Then the question of food reared its head. After all, apart from minor snacks, it had been over 24 hours.

Difficulty: I wanted a relaxed, sit-down place, but it was noon. I tried for the Rivermark Red Robin, but it was impossible to park.

So I ended up here at Bennigan's. Where I'm having a fairly nice lunch crowded at the bar...

From here, I'm going to try to get my beard trimmed, then off for the hour of reckoning at Kaiser.
