2. timprov's doctor visit resulted in a plan that seems like it might even qualify as good and workable. Also, I got to see our doctor and nurse with nothing wrong with me, and our doctor is quite amusing. This time there was no discussion of Cossacks or third eyes, but she and I made bacteria-noises at each other. Does your doctor make bacteria-noises? I didn't think so.
3. There is, as I have mentioned, nothing wrong with me just now. I feel fine. Still. I know! I'm as surprised as you are! And probably even happier.
4. I almost certainly get to eat mozzarella fresca with fresh garden basil and cherry tomatoes that taste like actual tomatoes and not reddish mush, sometime today. This is such a happy thing. I also get boysenberry sorbet with Ghirardelli chips if I want it. I'm still mired in that particular obsession, but it's a good mire.
5. The ending to "In the Velvet Swamp" came clear on the drive down to my folks' for dinner last night, so now I just have to sit down and put words on paper and it will be done. And the words-on-paper part is looking quite reasonable for this particular short story.
