Happy Darwin Day - Can you dig it? — LiveJournal
Happy Darwin Day
In October of last year I went to the doctor for a physical. I hadn't been to the doctor for a check up in a couple of years so it seemed like a good idea. The general physical went well - aside from being overweight I was in good health. Then came the blood work, which indicated that my cholesterol was extremely high. This isn't really much of a surprise.
So the doctor put me on a statin to address my cholesterol. It's been just over two months since I actually started the medication and I went for a check up and new blood work. The results came in the mail yesterday and my levels are all where they should be. So quite pleased - better living through chemistry.

Charles Darwin was born 200 years ago today, and On The Origin of Species was published 150 years ago this year (November). His contributions to our knowledge and understanding of the world should be celebrated by all.

Six Nations rugby has started. Last weekend I watched Wales beat down Scotland. This weekend I'm going to try to get to the Wales v England game at 12:30 at Fado. The cost is $20 per person (Setanta charges ridiculous pay per view rates for the Six Nations).

I've been to Chattanooga twice in the past two weeks for work. This week had an overnight stay, but I had a killer headache and got an early night rather than catching up with people.

This morning consists of preparation for probably three hours of conference calls this afternoon. And releasing reports. I find that I write lots of reports. I write wordy reports and I create data reports. I need to convert my Access databases to SQL Server and rewrite my processing code. That might make some of my data reports come out quicker. The wordy reports can't be hastened in such a manner, unfortunately.

Last night was tasty dinner and fun TV with friends: US vs Mexico football (2-0), Lost, and Life On Mars. With respect to the latter show, I prefer the British version but don't hate the American version.

I'm sleepy. I think I shall try to get an early night tonight.
