Do's and Don'ts...

* Don't trust your vet to explain everything about your pet's medication to you. Question everything. I should have, but I didn't. The cost? Cat harfing for almost a week straight now because the vet didn't tell me I needed to keep him on these pills for the rest of his life, instead she just assumed I'd intuit that fact via ESP.

* Do make sure to get the cherry flavored version of Cepacol, not the "cool menthol." Friends, there is nothing cool about this stuff. I can tell you with all honesty that experience proves that gasoline tastes better than this stuff.

* Don't go into work if you're still sick.

* Do ignore the previous statement if you're still sick but can't afford to burn anymore time off. It's a bad thing to use 40 hours of sick leave in the first two months of the year.

* Don't forget your flu shot. I made this mistake. Learn from it.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to call my doctor and find out why I still have a light-grade fever four days after the main event.

Color test results...

Okay, I finally broke under the immense pressure and took the colorgenics test. I'm posting the results here because they're sort of interesting, and while I can't say they're particularly insightful they do resonate with me to a small degree. Maybe one of the lurking psych majors (hi, girls) have something to say on the validity of these tests?

While I don't usually post poll results and find them annoying in general, I have to tip my hat to the absolute speed with which this particular meme has propagated. At least I find the results in this test to be slightly more meaningful than "Which Sea Slug Are You?"

It's time for lunch. I want to go home and sleep, my stomach isn't interested in food.
