Tag Editing

If you're on my friends list, you can now edit the tags on any of my entries. Each entry should have a 'Tags" link (next to 'Comment', where "Memory?" used to be, in my style) through which you can 'Do anything with [my] tags that [I] can do" -- FAQ 229. (The magical incantation, uttered into the admin console, was "tag_permissions friends friends".)

I'm not really expecting anyone to go back and tag things for me, but who knows, they might. I also think that I'll start using tags more. Maybe even write some scripts to set tags based on old content in entries: things with "ipod" getting an ipod tag and so on.

For the record, for the S2 users among us, the key for tag editing is "edit_tags". I'm sure this is documented somewhere, but I only found it by looking at LJ/S2.pm in the code. I wonder if there's some magical S2 documentation that I don't know about.

My iPod has been lost somewhere in the house. Last time I saw it was when aajwind was playing with it a week and a half ago. I did get some more of the house clean, and Emmy is making amazing progress on the downstairs of the house.

I'm really tired.

Rent is mailed though, and the DVD selection has been cleaned up to the point that we actually know where things are (shock! Horror!) and we've got netflix flowing again so Jess and I are going to be watching the Sopranos tonight.

I think I'm probably going to be posting a lot of entries today.

Hospital Bills

Over the past week or so, I've been getting bills for my hospital visits last week. There were a whole bunch of seperate bills, for the different times I was there, but most of them came last week.

This week, another one came. Different color, but non-inclusive with the other ones. I called the number, and found it was for the physician's time, and that the hospital/ER time is billed seperately. She asked me if I had health insurance (no) if I wanted to apply for Free Care (I don't qualify) and when she found the answers, offered to pass me off to someone who might be able to get me a discount.

Cool. She did. I got a discount. I gave my credit card number to pay, transferred over to the hospital department to pay that bill. Needed to get a call back from the manager. While I'm waiting, Sarita, from Mt. Auburn calls me back and tells me that some woman just called up and tried to pay my bill. Confused, I ask Jess. Not Jess. Call Jess's mom. Not Jess's mom. At this point I'm really confused, because I only got the bill about 20 minutes before -- how the hell could someone else have had the account number from the bill I just got? Call the hospital back to tell them to just forget about random benefactor, and pay my bill.

Me: "I have no idea who it was, so we can just ignore that."
Her: "Okay, I won't run the card then."
Me: "Sounds good. So we're all set now, right?"
Her: "Yep. Did you want to pay today, while I've got you?"
Me: "Uh. I just called and gave you a card number, right?"
Her: "When?"
Me: "About 10 minutes ago..."
Her: "Oh God, so that was you. I'm so sorry."

Turns out that the woman who called up wanting to pay my bill was... you guessed it, me!

Ah well. Everything's paid off now. (Well, put on credit, anyway.) So I don't have to worry about it. And hey, I can write the medical expenses on itemized deductions next year!


I'm watching the first two episodes of Sopranos. I keep seeing the therapist and Tony Soprano in the room together, and I think of Col. Winter from Last Castle, and Margo from Hackers.

It's a real mind-fuck.

Jury Duty

I got a Jury Duty notice last week...

For Champaign County.

(It ended up at my parents house - my dad is checking the "Doesn't live here box" and returning it.)

I think they missed by a couple days months years...
