During the Doctor Who Panel

I sit comfortably in my own living room and read about all the questions and answers on Twitter, also viewing pictures. I can also stream highlights on Tivo. My, how things have changed! Maybe I don't have to be there live (and seriously, if ComicCon is SOLD OUT, I don't even want to think about how crowded it is, and how hard it must be to get INTO any of the popular panels -- good grief, the people who are there! The entire cast of Doctor Who alone, but I know Nathan Fillion and Zachary Levi are there, and the entire cast of Criminal Minds, and that's only who I've seen on Twitter -- ye gods).

But here we've moved on to Fringe Season 2. The more I watch this show the more astonished I become that John Noble has never won the Emmy for this role. And as good as he is in the early seasons, I know he steps it up when Walternate comes into the picture.

It's hot here. And by "hot," I mean it's practically jungle-steamy. Admittedly, it's only around 40% humidity, but that's high for us. Fortunately, today it's only 96, so it's not as bad as it was yesterday. We've had a lot of rain this monsoon season, which is REALLY good, after the last several years of "non-soons" we've been having.

I've had a couple of wonderful professional manicures the last couple of months, which has led to something I rarely have: fingernails. (Long for me means they're past the end of my fingertips.) I'm having trouble now with my typing, as I am not accustomed to HAVING fingernails when I type. How do people do it?

Everyone on Twitter seems to feel I'm lacking in iron, due to the fact that despite a good night's sleep or two, I was falling asleep yesterday almost every time I stopped moving. Not sure if I should take some supplements or not. Every time I've gone to the doctor with this problem of tired dragginess and exhaustion, my blood tests have always come back perfectly normal. I'm pretty sure I have tennis elbow caused by RSI, but that's just a self-diagnosis based on where the pain is and what makes it hurt more, but it definitely gets worse doing data entry at the office, where my desk is somewhat NOT ergonomic.

Sold out...yeah I'll watch it on TV and via twitter (as much as I'd like to go to comicon)

If you were low on iron it would definitely show in a blood work. Ditto thyroid or sugar (both of which could give you that draggy feeling). I'm assuming you don't have sleep apnea

Yeah, when you consider exactly how many people that is... YIKES.

And, oh, yeah, YIKES.

I don't think so. I can sleep pretty near at the drop of a hat. Everything in my blood work has always come back normal, normal, normal. The last time I felt like this the doc ran all sorts of tests, and NADA. This and I've pretty much been completely off sugar for nearly three weeks (I had some wine last night and a little ice cream, the first sugar other than fruit).

no kidding.

yeah, I've got nothing. Sorry. anemia, diabetes, sleep apnea, thyroid, those would be my go to's if I were running blood work for someone with these symptoms

Well, I'm certainly due for my yearly physical, which I think I'm overdue on by, um, at least a year...

It may be time to get some tests re-run. I do hate giving blood, though. (is big wuss)

oops, yes schedule that, in fact, if you can tell the doc's nurse what's going on and ask if the doc thinks you should go for blood work before your appt so s/he'll have it in hand whenyou get there.

snort to the wuss. many people are

i need to schedule my yearly as well

Yes, Doctor.

If I get a good blood tech, who listens when I say "I'm a fainter," then things are usually okay.

oh geez. I was lucky. I only ever had a few of those (all men) but one was an enormous prison guard who crushed me when he fainted on me

I have terrified nurses, blood techs, and orderlies (and once my wife, who happened to witness it) by passing out when they didn't take me seriously and lay me down first.

My doctor was vaguely amused by it, though...

snort. I feel sorry for you and the health care workers.

I watched the Joss Whedon q&a and noticed him thanking Zach Levi. Do you know why? Is ZL running some part of Comic Con?

Stress makes me tired. I call it Lutheran Sleep Response...

Zach must have been doing something, because Nathan Fillion tweeted "Did I just kiss Zachary Levi on the mouth?!?" so he may have been running something Firefly related -- he does run Nerd Machine, so they may have been sponsoring some panel or other. I missed a lot of tweets!
