This Week In Medicine

Yesterday I had to rush into Hakunila to get jabbed and blood-drained as part of my annual series of check-ups. Tomorrow, I was destined for a couple of different X-rays. Unfortunately, one of them has now been moved to the middle of November (giving me two pointless crappy half-days at work instead of a solid day off to get all the farting round done).

To cap it off, the oscopy I was booked in for next week, and which I was just gathering myself for (have I mentioned how very fucking unpleasant oscopies are?), has been bumped to the middle of December. Just before our trip, in fact.

On the plus side, I mentioned that they’d sent me the awful 5-litre option of prep medicine and they are now sending me a free set of the awful 2-glass option, which makes me retch in my mouth just thinking about it but at least it’s over in tequila-slammer timeframes. So that saved me €20 or so.

And that, at least, should be a solid day off regardless of when it happens.

Now, back to work for me (and back to setting up my Bad Cow e-book publication while my files save … stay tuned).

About Hatboy

I’m not often driven to introspection or reflection, but the question does come up sometimes. The big question. So big, there’s just no containing it within the puny boundaries of a single set of punctuationary bookends. Who are these mysterious and unsung heroes of obscurity and shadow? What is their origin story? Do they have a prequel trilogy? What are their secret identities? What are their public identities, for that matter? What are their powers? Their abilities? Their haunted pasts and troubled futures? Their modus operandi? Where do they live anyway, and when? What do they do for a living? Do they really have these fantastical adventures, or is it a dazzlingly intellectual and overwrought metaphor? Or is it perhaps a smug and post-modern sort of metaphor? Is it a plain stupid metaphor, hedged around with thick wads of plausible deniability, a soap bubble of illusory plot dependent upon readers who don’t dare question it for fear of looking foolish? A flight of fancy, having dozed off in front of the television during an episode of something suitably spaceship-oriented? Do they have a quest, a handler, a mission statement, a department-level development objective in five stages? I am Hatboy.

    Ugh. Yeah, I agree, days like this SUCK. Too much shit going on, changing around, and bad shit at that.
