So, Thursday night I start having pains in my chest very similar to my heart attack dream.  After two hours of this I go to the ER.  It's super scary, but they got to me right away, the pain got so bad.  They hooked me up to all the machines and did a bunch of tests, said my heart looked fine.

Turns out I have pleurisy, caused by this damn infection I've been fighting.  I've already been through two rounds of Bactrim with it.  Evidently the pains can mimic a heart attack.  Also explains that why for the last weak it hurt to take a deep breath.  Doctor told me my lungs didn't sound great, so they gave me a shot and then put me on heavy antibiotics so it doesn't turn into pneumonia.  It still hurts off and on, but at least its not constant, and its not as bad.  But I wish I could stop coughing.  Stupid cough.

Makes me wonder, was my dream a foreshadowing?  Or maybe it was hurting in my sleep?  Weird.

They also told me my potassium was very low.  Which explains the palpitations and cramping in my legs.  Since I've been taking potassium supplements, and eating potassium rich foods, which was Thursday, I haven't had but maybe one or two spells, and before I having them several times a day.  And my legs are better. 

This takes a load off my mind.

Lee Mack ruins almost anything he appears in.  He's a total twat.

He serves as a good punching bag for Stephen Fry in QI.

and so begins the three-day quantum field theory exam. you may hear screaming; don't worry about it.

Sounds a lot like Wanda Sykes.

Boo, I love Wanda, mind you, she reminds me of my second oldest sister so I might be biased. :)

I found it underwhelming really, and I love music (was with a friend who worked for Universal at the time), Cleveland in general isn't bad and the architecture of the hall is fun but it's just a bit meh I thought.

Weirdly I found Hitsaville, which is really just a little pair of houses on Grand Blvd. Far more interesting to visit.

The one I saw he just kind of ruined. Came in and started shouting in "funny voices."

I'm specifically referring to this bit:

Wanda Sykes is one of the more famous versions of the "sassy black woman" stock character.   Because she's a woman, she's categorized as "strong and independent", and being black makes her "sassy".  When you look past the gender and racial qualities, she's really just an asshole.  I mean, in the characters she plays and in her standup she comes off that way.  I dunno what she's like personally.

We're almost up to that one, I'll have to save it!  I do enjoy it when David Mitchell gives him a good slapdown on Would I Lie To You.

Phill Jupitus is kind of a wanker as well, but is occasionally funny.

You're a couple of seasons behind.  They just finished J over here.

I like her when she does a guest character, like on The Drew Carey Show. Not so much on her own.

There was a riff in the Rifftrax of Grey's Anatomy.

Bridget:"Oh Nazi, you're like an unlikable version of Wanda Sykes."
Mike:"So, Wanda Sykes?"
