||Today really didn't go as planned
Posted on July 27th, 2008
|The day disappeared. At some point during the night the cats had managed to disconnect some parts of the TV setup, so a good part of the evening was spent fetching parts and tools from the storage closet so dad could set everything up again. This time around the broken DVD player and VCR are removed, with the PlayStation 2 included where the VCR used to be. Surprisingly this new setup has resulted in a clearer picture and more responsive cable.
Looking things up online I discovered a number of things about my medication that I previously didn't know. One of these things was that Diabetes Insipidus is often caused by that medication. I drink over 5 gallons of cold water per day, which is one of the two major symptoms of DI. The catch however is the test for it. If a person with DI goes without water for a span of time, they'll still pump out pee that's hard to distinguish from tap water. If I go without drinking water for a span of time, my output looks like a warm frosty beer, so the test for me is negative by a large margin. It's still interesting though that chronic thirst is linked to the medication. I was thinking it was linked to diabetes, which is common in the bloodline and I'm a prime candidate with the hypoglycemia.
I obviously didn't get the long entry about the wedding done; life just got in the way.
And so I leave you with the link for today, and it's one that'll drive you nuts. Mango. Has nothing to do with SNL.
