Four years ago, a bout with some form of "stomach flu" turned into a heart infection, and a doubleheader of myocarditis and pericarditis. I was given a one-in-twenty chance of needing a heart transplant -- not much, but I'd have preferred zero! Of course, this was after my symptoms were misdiagnosed as a heart attack and I'd been given an angiogram. Watching a live image of your own heart being pumped full of dye is fascinating and terrifying at the same time!

Great Wolf Lodge turned out not to be a venue for discussing diaper fetishes, which was probably for the best! Instead, it happened last night. Partially. When I got home from work, my wife and kids were home. Everything seemed happy and normal--again, encouraging. (I'd taken my bag of diapers and tossed them in my car trunk, which I figured would not have gone unnoticed!) Kids' bedtimes came and went, and my wife sat down on

The cabinet had been packed with all manner of electrical equipment and
This Friday, my wisdom teeth are finally coming out.

I ended up with a cavity in one last year, and the recommendation came down to have them extracted. It'll be my first experience with general anesthesia. I'm actually kind of glad they'll just be knocking me out, but it's hard not to be a little antsy about that at
Uhg. What a day!
Had my midyear performance evaluation at work. Went fine. Met up with a friend afterwards and drove to a nearby tech conference. Arrived back to find corporate security blocking the driveway to my building. Weird. So, we pulled into a parking lot across the street, got out, and walked slowly over to the scene.
