My excitement for the day.

I had an appointment with my allergist today.

It took me 3 weeks to get an appointment to see him, so I was really excited about it.

I know, people should never get this excited about doctor’s appointments. Especially not allergists.

But I was. And I admit it.

So… my doctor has an educated guess as to what’s been ailing me. But I’m not sure he’s right. He’s not sure either. I have officially baffled my allergist.

I don’t think I want the world to know what the doctor thinks, but contrary to popular belief,* I do not have leprosy. I AM NOT A LEPER!!!

Anyway, we are going to try a bunch of things and I get to go back in a month. I’m going to be dropping a bunch of money for a bunch of meds, so hopefully something works.

PS – I never used the categories/tags on my blog very often, but it’s interesting that I have one called “allergic.” Sheesh.

PPS – The other excitement for the day is that I had dinner with work peeps at uWink in Hollywood. I’d been there before, but wasn’t impressed. It was better tonight, but I can’t think of why I’d want to come back for a mediocre experience.

*Popular belief… or maybe just Yoshi

Ugh! Feeling nauseated and this is the best flight I’ve been on in a long time! I am absolutely thrilled by my first experience on Virgin America and I can’t wait to book my next trip on this airline!

So I literally ordered a couple of drinks from the screen in front of me and the stewardess (I don’t care if it isn’t PC to call them that these days) brought them to me in just a couple of minutes! Of course I am having some sort of allergic fit and she saw me SNEEZE all over my iphone (how embarrassing!) but then I 1had water and Ginger ale to take my pills with!

The flight from LA to DC was barely filled… Almost every person on the flight has their own row to themselves! I have been laying across my row of three comfy leather seats with my headphones plugged in and have been listening to a playlist of miscellaneous dance and 80’s music I put together during takeoff. The on-board entertainment system is equipped with some cool stuff like live tv and games and on board chat. Internet isn’t working yet but that’s coming soon. The games are a little sucky and the handset for typing is a little tough to use but there’s still plenty to keep you entertained. I’d say.

Oh yeah, another thing I like about these planes is that they have power, USB, and rj45 plugs between each seat so you can charge or use your electronical doodads during your flight.

Maybe someday I will fly first class and sit on one the massage chairs! But that might spoil me beyond belief!

The return of Sneezy.

I took allergy drugs all day yesterday and as soon as I woke up this morning and I’m still sneezing up a storm.

I could go back to the allergist and get more drugs, but maybe I’ll just try to live through this.

(For kicks, check out my scary, scary photo of my allergy test here)

I feel miserable right now and I’m afraid to take Benadryl because I still have some reading to do for my Marketing midterm tonight and will need to drive my butt to campus tonight and take a 3 hour exam.
