but i just discovered i kinda dig that tv show "heroes".
i think being forced to watch like 7 episodes this weekend is what's responsible.
i feel like an utter dork.
anyhoo, in other news, i've been a bit under the weather lately. something called *bacterial parotitis*. the parotid glands are the largest of the three sets of salivary glands. i went to the doc wednesday, and she thought it was either 1. an infection, and she wrote me a prescription for augmentin, the biggest horse pill you've ever seen; 2. a (most likely) benign tumor. well, i've since discovered it must be the first option because i don't think a tumor would be responding to antibiotics, and this thing in my neck has dramatically reduced in size since i started on the bug juice.
i'm going to make another appointment to see her towards the end of this week so she can see how things are going, etc.
as you may know, i am w/o health insurance, and i think i may have just dodged a bullet.
