I've also been told I have little tact, so if this offends you simply ride on.

Well, I'm going to have blood drawn to day at work.  Yeah, it's one of those evils that comes with my job, especially if I want that old discount on my insurance.  This means they want me to fast... for 9 hours... and drink plenty of water.....  Right.  I began going to the VA for my health care about a month ago.  They're very good.  They're cheap.  The only reason I didn't dump my work insurance is because I have a specialist or two I feel comfortable with and didn't want to change.  Dr Wabnick, from the VA, is working to get my cholesterol down, and my blood pressure.  This is how it goes.

Anyway, I'm not fasting.  I ate breakfast.  Also coffee with whole milk.  As I said, the only reason I'm going through with this is for the discount, which will knock over $600 off of my insurance payments this year.  And, of course, when they ask me if I've been fasting I'll lie.  I'll say "yeah, stick me with your little needle."  The things we do to save a buck.


  1. I have to get my annual vampire test too; this week or next.

  2. The only thing good about this morning were the Pop Tarts.... which says about all that needs to be said.

    1. oooooooooh! my fave is brown sugar cinnamon unfrosted; second fave is strawberry unfrosted.

    2. So right, and never toasted... ever.
