1. Finally got my CT results from my urologist late yesterday afternoon - no kidney stone. WOOHOO!!!!

2. I'm floating again for the next 2 weeks, but at least I'm still on the same floor, and only at one desk, and the people I'm working for are actually pretty nice. Also, I figured out how to forward my phone, so I'm still reachable.

3. Kath and I geeked out last night and watched specific scenes in the original Star Wars trilogy - i.e., anything that had to do with Darth Vader's paternity issues, Obi-Wan's cryptic comments and/or Yoda. It's pretty obvious that Episode 4 didn't quite have all the back story that the later episodes did (for example, wouldn't Obi-Wan and Yoda recognize R2D2 and vice versa?), and it's kinda sad how, apparently, good Jedi get senile really fast in their old age. Poor Yoda, only 20 years previous to Ep. 5 an ass-kicker of ridiculous proportions, is reduced to clanging R2D2 with a stick. (And meanwhile, Count Dooku and the Emperor are as agile and ferocious as anybody, while clearly being advanced in age - maybe the tradeoff to losing your soul to the Dark Side is to retain your physical agility?)

4. I can't freakin' believe that the release party is NEXT FRIDAY. Where did the time go? Mike is on tour, but the rest of us are rehearsing tomorrow night with amplifiers for the first time since... what, since before we finished the EP. That's sorta ridiculous.

5. The Yankees have now won 14 of 16, but I won't believe that they've actually turned a corner until this weekend's series with Boston. Until they can prove that they can beat a winning team, especially Boston, I'm still hedging my bets. This Wang kid, though, he might be the real deal. I'll be curious to see how he fares against teams the 2nd time around.
