swelling, syphilis, & maria shriver

Brett FavreAnyone out there got tickets to tonight's football game at Ravens Stadium in Baltimore? Apparently it may be one of Brett Favre's last games at the ripe old age of 36, and I've never seen a major NFL game before. Plus I dig the stadiums in Baltimore. I'm not really a football fan, but I am a Favre fan.

I love my gay medical practice when phrases like this roll off the physician's assistants' tongue without a flinch:

"You really should get tested for syphilis too, because you can easily get it from sucking cock or getting sucked off."

His delivery was so deadpan he made me giggle out loud. I had to go in today to get my hands checked out, as I seem to be getting seasonally dry hands, so itchy and red that I need 'roid cream. Otherwise it looks like someone put Maria Shriver's hands on my wrists. Prednisone taken orally takes care of the rash, but it turns me into a PMS/'roid rage queen, and we'll have none of that this time of year.

Last night we sorta had the Christmas edition of D&D, where one player went so far as to make Turkish Delights for the group! They are an extremely rich jellied candy with nuts in them. I rewarded the brown-nosing player by having an intelligent warrior gorilla slay his character in three swipes of his longsword. I'm giving like that this time of year.

But you know, dying of syphillis does has a real, old-world quality about it. Very Faulkneresque.

Not that I'm advocating it or anything.
