doctor's visit

Walking into the doctor's office for an appointment, the receptionist asks how I am today. Um, I'm sick?...or masochistic, after all, I just love having needles stuck in me. *shudder*

I'm currently reading:
#1 - the fantasy anthology Young Warriors Stories of Strength edited by Tamora Pierce & Josepha Sherman. I've finished the first 5 stories and really enjoyed Bruce Holland Roger's The Gift of Rain Mountain, especially the ending, and Pamela F. Service's Lioness, which had nothing to do with Tamora Pierce's Alanna but was a terrific story of a princess defending her land of Kush from the invading Romans.
#2 - the latest and possibly last Firekeeper novel Wolf's Blood by Jane Lindskold.
#3 - the mystery anthology First Cases edited by Robert J. Randisi. Features the first appearances of classic privates eyes by Sue Grafton, Sara Paretsky, Bill Pronzini, Marcia Muller and others.

Picked up a new battery charger for the bike yesterday after having the first one tested. It seems the power surge a couple weeks ago fried the other one so it's no wonder I ended up on pedal power alone. Okay, I'll admit to a few bad habits there: I'm too lazy to only use the motor when I have to & I'm always in a hurry to get where I'm going as quickly as possible.
