There needs to be some term for when three holidays fall on the same day. You often get a Passover/Easter overlap, but when it hits April Fools Day, I just don't know how to act. Even though picturing Christ emerging from the tomb and giggling "April Fools!" is pretty satisfying.
I spent six hours yesterday changing all my passwords. (Usually, this is where I'd type "I do it every year," only some websites cheerily told me I last changed it three years ago.) Six hours. Sixty-eight passwords. I know there must be some new technology that I can use. I was very particular about changing my password safe, ticking each one off the printed list, and now it occurs to me I didn't shred the printed list.
(One hour interlude while I locate the shredder and shred the list).
- Guitar Update
In my crawl toward my goal of playing both the melody and accompaniment, I have made a small breakthrough. It looks like I'm 3/4th of the way there on Blowin In The Wind. I can play the melody notes and 2 of the three harmony notes. Now I just need to train my thumb to hit the bass notes. Of course, my "thumb" is actually my birth defect, so it'll be extra inspiring when I get it right.
- Druuuuugs: The Reckoning
You know how I have that great deal in which the drug company pays my deductible each year, so essentially I pay nothing for my $6,300 a month MS drug? It's a great deal for me. Of course I'm aware it sucks for the insurance company, and no doubt all our rates are higher because of it. Well, the insurance company sent me a letter stating that they wouldn't let the drug company do that any more. I protested as much as I could, and then gave in, since the drugs go generic next year and then my drug company free ride is over anyway. Even if the generic is 90% off, it's still $630 a month ... or $7,560 a year, so I might as well get used to paying my deductible anyway. Technically, I've got four years worth of deductibles invested in my health care savings account, because I knew this day woud come. I'm not complaining, I got nine years worth of fabulous drugs for free. I'm not complaining about my MS effectively being cured either. I'll pay what I have to for stable MRIs. And now if I go on the generic version, we get to see how much of my total remission is due to the placebo effect. Science!
