Woo, my kindle(2) is here and thus far I am really enjoying it. Purchased a couple of books online and raided all the freebies I could find. I need to figure out how to convert some of the .pdb files into something the kindle can read, but for now, I have lots of things to enjoy.

On the flip side... (because everything happy needs something annoying to balance it) I have to go to the hospital next week for a thyroid biopsy. Last year they located a tumor between the lobes of my thyroid and... it's bigger now, sooooo, needle time. From what I understand the likelihood of it being malignant is very low, and the procedure itself is uncomfortable, but not painful. This is my happy face, really. (As an aside, I'm finding the terminology medical professionals use to describe a biological something that is living where it shouldn't be rather fascinating. 'It's a nodule. It's a growth. It's a tumor. It's a benign cancer.' Then we get on into Other Things like cysts, fibroids and... heaven only knows what else. Why not just say 'Look, there's a lump, it shouldn't be there, we recommend you get it checked.'?)

I apologize for the sporadic postings.. I've been enamored of Twitter and its 'here's something quick' short attention span functionality. I'll try to post more, and hopefully.. art soon.
