Dennis, Doctors, Ringo and Bob Mould

I'm officially on vacation for the next 10 days. I was hoping for a week of sun and semi-relaxation, but thanks to Hurricane Dennis it doesn't look like that will be happening. Today was sort of sunny, mostly overcast and warm. The rest of the week looks to be rainy and 10-15 degrees cooler (I'm just to the right of the 'X', on the edge of the yellow area. Courtesy NOAA.). We definately need the rain, but I'd like some "me-time" by the pool, you know.

I went to the doctor today. A new doctor for me, as I'm sick (pun intended) of my old doctor's office. Everytime I go in there, I never see a doctor, it's always a different PA or MA, and it's just really frustrating to not get consistent opinions and help form an actual doctor. I'm seeing a new, actual doctor in a smaller practice to see if that will change. I'm on vacation and I've got the aches, a small cough, a runny nose with green drainage, sore throat and sneezes. Back to the Zyrtec-D and Z-Pack. Fun.

It appears that Ringo is not too pleased with Paul for giving him the cold shoulder at the Live 8 conerts. I think I'd be a little pissed, too. It was cool that Paul was singing with U2 as his backing band, but to have Larry Mullen playing drums next to Ringo in his Sgt. Peppers suit would have been incredible. Instead, Paul's notorious ego took over once again. And they failed to deliver with U2 wearing the Sgt. Peppers suits like they hyped up before the show. Wouldn't it have been great to have The Rutles play the Sgt. Pepper's part?

Finally, I'm patiently awaiting the new Bob Mould record Body of Song. It should arrive in the mail any day now, possibly tommorow. Here's a brief interview by Jack Rabid for Gallery of Sound. So far, the songs I've heard and all reviews I've read have been favorable. I'll give my opinion once I've heard it.

I bought Ringo's latest Choose Love recently and it's a blast. Too bad he was snubbed. They really should have asked him.

Hope ya get feeling better so you can enjoy your time off.
