Post 2222 - I'm Still Alive

Hi, folks.  This will be a short one.

I am sorry that I didn't write on Monday evening.  I wasn't feeling well.  I got home around 5:30 and went to bed five minutes later.  Other than a few bathroom breaks, and a short telephone conversation or two, I didn't get up until 1:30 this afternoon.  And that was only because Patricia called me at home and awakened me.

Obviously, this is a problem.  I do not know what is wrong with me, if anything.  I just know that I am sleeping my life away, and that is not good.  It is one thing to sleep a lot if you have a cold or a flu; it is quite another when you don't seem to have either of those things and you sleep a lot anyway.

I will call my doctor in the morning and make an appointment.  I may or may not tell you what the diagnosis is, depending on what it may be.

You guys ever hear of Lorne Elliott?  He is an extremely funny man who used to have a show on CBC radio called "Madly Off in All Directions".  Another one of those people whose fame is circumscribed by the audience of the CBC, but this time unjustly so.  He should be a household name.

He did a monologue several years ago in which he reported that he hadn't been feeling well.  He was tired all the time.  Could barely stay awak  Wasn't feel at all up to snuff.  So, he went to the doctor.  He underwent a series of tests.  When the results came back, his doctor asked to speak with him.  Turned out that he, Lorne, was... lazy.

I hope that my own diagnosis is just that, and not something else.

Hey, here's a Lorne Elliott piece from youtube.  There are lots more.  Check them out.

See you tomorrow.
