Keep on Keepin' On
Friday, February 20, 2009
Last night I dreamt I was in a 99 Cent Store - the one where I had my picture taken for the budget article in the L.A. Times about 6 months ago! That's the first time that has happened.
My stomach has been bothering me, so I looked up the symptoms on the net and then have been doctoring myself., and avoiding irritants like tea and alcohol and drinking camomille tea and NA beer instread. It's terrible - I wish I had an MD I could go to whom I trusted to do more for me on a visit than I could do for myself! But the OTC nostrums, etc., I have been taking seem to be working, so I am on the right track. What happened to doctors who came to your HOUSE? When I am feeling sick, the last thing I want to do is sit around in a cold waiting room on an uncomfortable chair looking horrid...(There has been a stomach flu thing going around and since people around me have had it, I suspect that that has something to do with it...)
I mean, the first thing a doctor will do is go for the obvious, which I can get by checking Web MD - Mark had an accident once on a Sunday when he twisted a nerve in his back - and I applied first aid - and iced it and gave him large doses of ibuprophen which relieved it - and then took him to the doctor the next day - and the doctor confirmed it was probably a nerve and told us to continue what we had been doing and charged us $50 or something! Maybe there is something to getting too good at first aid....
On a brighter note, the pirate movie I was in -JOLLY ROGER -was on TV last night on the CHILL cable station. So I caught my scenes to see what they would look like. My best work, really! It doesn't feel so stupid to have pursued acting all this time, if I have at least this to show for it - no matter how silly the flick is - It gave me great appreciation for Vincent Price!
Mark is pushing to get off early to the boat - and I am stalling here - partly because of my malaise - George is singing tonite at a place in Ojai - do I want to push myself to go? We will see...
Hasta la vista - at least California now finally has a budget -
