A Day with Doctors

I took today off and filled it with doctor's appointments.

First with the vet. Reynaldo has been behaving TERRIBLY ever since I came back from vacation. Peeing outside the box, hollering, leaping at nothing, eating my hair ... it's been a nightmare. I found out today that he has been trying to tell me that he's not feeling well. He has a urinary tract infection. Whereas another cat in discomfort would be quiet and lethargic, Reynaldo is agitated. But he's been trying to get and hold my attention, trying to help me help him feel better! Well, it worked. Beginning tomorrow, and perhaps for the rest of his life, he will be on prescription cat food. Hopefully this will bring him comfort. Poor crazy cat!

Then in the afternoon I went to the dermatologist. He froze some little bumps -- congested oil glands -- from my cheek and temple. We talked about removing the mole on my lip and one on my back and he referred me to a (gulp) plastic surgeon. This surgeon is in the same building my shrink used to inhabit, so I take that as a good sign -- even though I'm not looking forward to it.

I also bought a new air conditioner at Sears today. I always like to make major purchases at Sears, when I can, since my first job was as a catalog copywriter for Sears. They have earned my loyalty.

So in all, it was a productive, but expensive, day off.

And a fine time was had by all

My friend John and I went to see Anything Goes at the Cadillac Palace Theater. It was performed by the completely awesome touring company of fabulous Broadway revival. There were Cole Porter songs and lavish production numbers and a "de-lovely" star turn by Rachel York. (As you can see from the post below, I have a weakness for leather-lunged singers.)

John and I always have a good time together. I'm lucky to have him in my life.
