 A list of words that Google Instant Search doesn't like (via jaylake ) 

I watched the Pilot episode of "Undercovers" the new spy show on NBC from JJ Abrams -- guys, it'd adorable!  Sure, I'm a sucker for a quirky charactered spy show, but I really liked it.  I mean, I watched a lot of new shows this past week, and this might've been my favorite out of the whole bunch.  ("The Defenders" with Jerry O'Connell and Jim Belushi came in a close second I think.)

Uh - the idea that Sherlock's brother in the new movie will be played by Stephen Fry is amazing to me.  :)


I feel like I should be more upset by my afternoon.  I had a normal doctors appointment today.  I had to wait an abnormal amount of time to see the doctor, both in the waiting room, and in the exam room.  Then, he gave me a cortisone shot for my allergies (something I've never had before) and then I had to have labs drawn.  Except their normal lab tech was out of the office which meant she had to stick me multiple times -- with a butterfly needle.  Usually, the butterfly is the last resort when they can't get to the vein with a normal needle, but the normal tech always gets it the first time, with a regular needle, no problem.  This chick?  Not so much.  And then she had the nerve (as she's rooting around in my arm with the needle) what was wrong.  *sigh*

However, the doctor did have some things for me - like the cortisone shot - that might help me get to feeling better.  He feels like a lot of it might be allergy related, including the problem I've been having with my eyebrow piercing (it's having problems healing - he says it looks like a metal allergy).  But, he also said that it might be a flare-up of the EBV, which unfortunately there's nothing to do for it.  So, I'll have to just be a little more careful -- and more than likely, I'll have to work on getting my sleep issues under control.

After my appointment, I got to spend some time with my dad, just me and him and the puppies: Zoe &  Zed.  Haven't gotten to do that in a while.  Those puppies are so adorable.   I took some pictures on my phone, so I'm going to put those up soon.

Aw, sorry to hear about the bad nurse... :(

I've been curious about Undercovers but was completely unable to find any info on it when I was poking around the internet last month. dangit, I missed the pilot?

Stephen Fry would be AMAZING as Mycroft. Omg. So perfect on so many levels.

I watched it on Hulu -- not actually sure when it aired, though I assume it was sometime last week.

WTF? Missing with a butterfly is nearly impossible. I haven't drawn blood in ten years and I'd bet dollars to donuts I could hit any vein in the first try with a butterfly.

I know right? I've never ever not had them be able to get it with the butterfly needle on the first try. Thankfully, the butterfly needle does leave a smaller bruise than a regular one does when they spend a minute digging around in there.
