Yellow and blue make green

WARNING - a least one regular reader of this blog has told me that this post contains TMI (too much information). If you are easily offended, you probably shouldn't read this post -- on the other hand if you're easily offended, you probably shouldn't read this blog!)

This is something I learned back in kindergarten finger painting, and Glad bags have had the slogan for many years.

But today, I got to see it firsthand in a way that I have never seen it before....

You see, I received my first Novantrone infusion today. All I can say is that this is a very very blue drug. Like blue enough to make the sky feel self-conscious about its color.

A little while ago, I went to the bathroom. Yada, yada, yada and without further ado I can verify via the equation in the title that the Novantrone is in my system. :-)

Getting the infusion done was a little bit of an adventure, mainly because the nurse practitioner had suggested that I should show up an hour in advance but by the time they started the infusion were running an hour behind. I was spending a little more time there than I wanted to, a pill made no less bitter by the fact that the Auto-Pay system did not recognize the parking validation and I was charged $24 for the time I was parked.

Ah well, no biggie. From now on, if they still haven't fixed the elevator to the third-floor from the Triangle garage, I'll just use the valet parking....

Feeling good so far, and I haven't checked the whites in my eyes to see if they're still white. Maybe I should ask somebody, if I can figure out a way to ask without sounding really really strange or like I'm using some type of pickup line!

Hi MichKa-Meleon,

> Maybe I should ask somebody

Alternately, you take a picture of your eye and post it here. We'll tell you its color :-)

We have found the Spice. The blue-on-blue eyes...you should post pics to a Dune board.

Mentioning blue reminds me of a car I recently saw locally with a particular numberplate. Did you know that had an alter ego in south west Scotland? See http://www.alanjmcf.me.uk/misc/michka%20car,%20prestwick.JPG
