And wrapping up the work week...

~ Dear City of Magdeburg. I understand that there is a new "Keep Magdeburg Clean" campaign going on and that this campaign will be especially important when World Cup visitors begin arriving but might I suggest that sweeping the main road in the city at 11:15 on a Friday morning is an incredibly stupid idea?

~ My doctor's office called me Wednesday to say that the doctor forgot to take my quarterly H1Ac blood test the last time I saw her and she had to have the test in to the insurance company by the 31st. I came in to her office quite early yesterday so she could get the blood and have it go out at the 9am lab run. Today she called to ask me if I was sick - a cold, sinus infection, repiratory funk, whatever because I have an elevated white blood cell count and she needs me to come back in Monday to give more blood to see if the lab just made an error or if I have some undiagnosed infection or something even more sinister going on. It's nothing more sinister, don't you think? I mean if she thought the white cell count was so high that it was something sinister, she'd have made me come in today, right?

I'm trying to avoid giving the panic button a workout this weekend.

~ They cleaned, filled and turned on the fountains outside of my apartment building. That means spring has officially arrived. It also means the sound of all that running water makes me have to pee a lot.

~ Knitting lace isn't so bad. Knitting lace while trying to watch the second season of the Gilmore Girls on DVD isn't bad either but gives hellish results.

Hope your weekend is the grooviest.

Maybe your white blood count is still elevated from when you were just sick a while back. Keep us posted about this.

I didn't know Tom Jones did Mama Told Me Not to Come.

A wise Ya-Ya once told me-Don't borrow trouble, sweetie. Whatever it is already is and all the fretting in the world won't change it.

Love you my peach!

So glad to know spring has officially arrived there (at 80 F today, no question here in Atlanta!). But sure hope there's nothing to be alarmed about with your white blood cell count. Do let us know what happens with that.

Yeah, what Tiff said.

It's not more sinister. It's just leftovers from your last bout of yuckiness.

How about a phone date tomorrow (Saturday)? 2 pm my time?

I agree, the whiteblood cell count is from your left over flu. Also, if it was bad, they would have you come back earlier.

I am beginning to think that you should burn these CDs. They rock. It kind of reminds me of the movie High Fidelity and trying to make the perfect mixed tape.

You know how people get really bad high blood pressure results coz the stress of being at the doctors pushes it sky high: maybe stress does the same thing to your white blood cells. Fingers crossed it's a nothingy fluke.

Enjoy your weekend too.

The Donnas--very cool. What is not to like about five hot chicks playing kick ass rock and roll?

I see you are single-handedly working on bringing the word "groovy" back. Well done!

Dixie, they always do this to me. Every time I get my blood drawn, no matter what I'm getting it drawn for, they always, without fail, tell me something is elevated or something is low, and make me get it done over "just to be sure". When the results come back the second time it's always "alles okay". Oops, must've just been lab error. Don't worry yourself until you have a reason to.
