Morning Discussion

By Alice O'Connor, Aug 19, 2009 1:25am PDT Another Wednesday. I began, as always, by setting out for a quick run. As the morning sun warmed my deeply bronzed skin, I chortled at the innocence of children playing with a hoop and stick in the street under the watchful eye of their dear nan. Around the six-mile mark a dog scampered up alongside me and began yapping hellos, but I was having none of that and punted the mongrel into a giant topiary rooster. Ah, to be alive! The sun, the sky, the earth, you, me, the sheer joy of existence! And certainly no parcels.

The flood from Gamescom continues today, helpfully categorised for your convenience. Be careful not to miss Chris's interview with id Software CEO Todd Hollenshead, mind.

    They called me in saying all my bloodwork came back and told me I don't have the diabeetus, my cholesteral and everything are exceptionally good, all my counts are awesome and I overall kick ass and am awesome. She asked me what I did to maintain my cholesteral because my bad ones were abnormally low and my good ones were above average and II told her I took Omega-3 every day and ate lean fish and chicken and stuff and fiber and veggies and she was very happy and said not many people do that. I learned that from the shack so thank you.

    THEN SHE TOLD ME MY LIVER ENZYMES WERE A LITTLE TOO HIGH AND SHE'D NEED TO DRAW BLOOD FOR A HEPATITIS TEST.

    OH MY GOD WHAT.

    I told her I drink too much and she frowned and said that's probably what it is, and to stop drinking so much, and she said I wasn't in any danger because functions were just fine and my enzymes were probably raised from the drinking but still. They drew blood for a big ol' hep test. :(

    I was drunk the night before the blood work but I did stop drinking before my 10pm fasting cutoff time :D

    Anyway now I've got to wait an entire weekend to find out if I have the fucking hep but I'm pretty sure I'm just a drunk.
