Conan! What is best in life?

Decent accomplishments today: spent four hours arranging, organizing, collating and copying parts for my three bands. Spent 90 minutes grading playing tests (although I think I might be confusing some tests with other tests - not sure if I'm regrading a cassette side that I've already done. Sigh). Spent a few hours watching Rutgers narrowly and interestingly defeat NC State in the "papajohns.com" bowl. Spent a little bit of time straightening up.

Left to do tonight: jog and lift some weights - not much, just two or three exercises. Put the recycling and the garbage out (BIG task, considering the XMas / Channukah recycling). Take the computer desk & monitor and put it on Freecycle, then put the crib out there. If I can, I'll vaccuum and wash the kitchen & dining room floors. Then, maybe, I'll watch an episode of House and sit down and read a book. Maybe.

All is contingent upon The Boy, as per usual. He went in for counts today, and they determined that he needs blood. His levels are VERY low. But, because of the timing, they took blood to type & cross and sent us home. He'll go back in the morning for his blood. The problem? He's bleeding from the access point. Not a lot - but enough to be concerning, particularly since it's going to be more than 12 hours until he's in front of the doctor.

What does that mean? Likely, a trip to the hospital tonight. We'll see. That will, of course, put the kibosh on everything except the garbage and recycling.

(The title? From the immortal "Conan the Barbarian". The general says: "Conan! What is best in life?" He responds: "To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women.")
