The salsa music here is like a notch too loud, since various parts of my body parts are vibrating involuntarily. It is pretty good music, and there's a certain comfort in being able to fart in public without being noticed.

I finished watched Robert Altman's "A Prarie Home Companion" at work and I don't quite know what to make of it. It seems very much like different segments of a bigger movie, with rather mixed results. The highlight of the movie is probably the singing and the songs, which are done by the stars themselves, including Meryl Streep and John C. Reily and Woody Harrelson. Garrison Kellior plays himself, and there's a certain charm about the guy. Its a interesting watch, though Lindsay Lohan does stick out like a sore thumb.

Alex had a few doctors appointments regarding his hyperactivity and listening shortcomings, and luckily his hearing was quickly ruled out. He had no problems hearing. But the doctor did notice that he had a lack of focus and an inability to really register layered questions. Anyway, the diagnosis is something like auditory discrimination or something, whereby he will hear something but is unable to properly process it in his brain. I guess its fairly common in kids his age, and something that is often misdiagnosed as ADHD. We're just taking it one day at a time and playing it by ear.

Trying not to have a meltdown at work. Both my shippers quit the same week, one with notice and one without, but I think it displaced me a little. And they're also pushing for overtime for the rest of july, so the idea itself is just wearing me out.

Listening to live salsa at RTC. Crowded!
