I’m awake now because I managed to fall into sleep too easily and much earlier that I should have last night. I’m writing a (short) blog entry now because in fewer than three hours I’ll be commuting to Macon to work a career fair at Mercer University today.
I Keep Feeling Like I’ll Be Someone’s Case Study
It’s been about a month since I first felt a weird feeling inside my chest’s cavity. It’s not a constant feeling, but one that occurs enough to cause me pause.
According to the test results of my physical I am “healthy.” According to the feeling that I’ve had for a month, one which I’ve never recalled feeling in my previous forty-four years, I am not.
Were I not headed to Macon today I’d be attempting to fill a prescription in order to begin a multi-week experiment to see if the doctor’s assessment of my ailing is correct, and to take additional corrective measures if it’s not.
I’m far from pleased. This is not turning out to be the banner year for which I wished. To put it into Ignatius J Reilly’s words “Fortuna seems to be spinning my downward” these days.

Here is the best artistic spin I could put on the crock-pot of vegetarian chili that I provided for yesterday’s potluck lunch.
It was tasty, but the way I made it might make for a better vegetable/bean soup.
I’m Normally Not A Lent Subscriber
For whatever reason I’m considering giving something up for Lent (which I am to believe starts today). Haven’t I suffered enough already during 2010’s forty-seven days? I guess not.
What shall I give up? Don’t go crazy on me by suggesting beer or wine, I’m considering soda or perhaps sloth.
