A few thousand words from the day.... - Blather. Rants. Repeat.

A few thousand words from the day....
Court. Long drive. Client bullshit. None of these were especially photogenic.  Well, except the leaves on the long drive, which were in yellow-orange peak gorgeousness, but they rather discourage you from photographing that at highway speeds.

Then came a 3:15 doctor's appointment. I presented no complaints, needed no treatment. I did get a flu shot, but I could've gotten that about anywhere.  No, this was just a "you're old and need to be seen twice a year now or we won't renew your scrips anymore" visit.  Wow- if I could do that to my clients: hey, we haven't done any financial planning since your bankruptcy- if you don't come in and pay for a consultation, the court will revoke your discharge!

Adding insult to my lack of injury: Doc didn't roll into the exam room until I'd been there close to an hour. It got so boring, and I was so punchy, I decided to get a second opinion before I ever heard his. My new phone is my first with Siri actually onboard, so I decided to get a preliminary checkup from her:

And by all accounts of my BP and breathing, she was right!


Then, this on the way home from said appointment.  It definitely Transformed my grumpy late-Friday mood:

That's all I've got for tonight. Pet updates and movie review-y stuff to come over the weekend.

You should have just gone with Siri and not bothered with the doctor.

I won't refill prescriptions if it's been more than a year (-ish), but that's more b/c it's good medical practice to keep an eye on patients, and not b/c I need the business. On the other hand, I do NOT want to see people for routine checks, b/c it's a waste of both their time and mine. So, once things are stable, a year for most things is fine.
