I'm horrible about the dentist, but have already had a baseline mammogram and colonoscopy, thanks to family history--though I put the latter of those off to the very end of the year I was told to get it. I know that one of the scariest parts of the process was thinking, "What if they find something? What will happen to my family?"

At one point our auto insurance company in Canada had Trillian as a male--I think the initial agent couldn't understand how we could have two females on the plan and claim married, despite their laws in support up here.

How presumptious of them, then, to go ahead and insert "male"! Good grief...

Yes, as I left yesterday I thought--"well, that was the easy part" because, really, the hard part is crossing your fingers and hoping nothing comes up.

Now I need to go check the exp. date on my license!

I was horrified that my license had expired--now every time I get in the car I dread being pulled over--the horror!
