I filled out an application for life insurance last night.

I've been thinking about it for a while, but last night I got an offer from AAA with very good rates. As I was reading through it, I realized that I really ought to sign up for some before I see a doctor, because it's entirely likely that I may end up with at least one diagnosis that's on that list they ask about (of things they can refuse to insure people for), and possibly more than one. Right now, I can truthfully say that I have never been diagnosed with anything on the list. So, I filled out the application and am mailing it today. Check off another item on the "being an adult" list.

Speaking of life insurance, a PSA: They always request that you name a beneficiary. You do not have to name one. There are pros and cons to doing it either way. However, keep in mind that once you have named one, it is very difficult to change it.

Meanwhile, I am studiously ignoring the nasty cold oidhche had last weekend. I knew at the time that it liked the looks of me, and yesterday I caught glimpses of it trying to catch up to me. Today, it's lurking right over my shoulder, poking into everything I'm working with, and generally making a pest of itself. I'm pretty sure it's going to follow me home tonight and mug me in a convenient dark alley, leaving me to spend the weekend recovering. However, I'm hoping that if I act like it's not there, it will get bored and go away first.

A few other things that don't really warrant their own posts:

Happy birthday to all the Libras and Scorpios among my friends. I love you all, I just haven't been keeping up this month, and I expect I'll be behind next month as well.

CSI last night was very good.

I'm still trying to figure out exactly how old our new baby lawyer is. I think he's a year or two younger than me. I need to figure out how to ask the right questions to work it out.

    It is so much more fun to be obsessing over how best to clean mouse pee off My Little Ponies instead of what the surgeon will say tomorrow.

    So, that last post was supposed to be under a filter, and I ended up submitting it too late at night and missed that. Apologies to those whose real…
