Ah, it's time for the yearly invasion of Iowa, aka the annual Air Show.

Have to have two cavities filled on Wednesday. That's going to suck. Or, I should say, that's going to keep me from sucking on straws or eating anything sticky or crunchy for a day or two.

I currently have two obsessions. One is the (now belated) birthday present for Melissa, the other is my health screening numbers. I'll post the full list later (for my own use), but in summary, my triglycerides, blood pressure, and BMI are too high and my good cholesterol is too low. Glucose and bad cholestrol are fine. What does this mean? I need to greatly reduce the amount of fat in my diet. Unfortunately for me, that includes red meat, whole eggs, and any partially hydrogenated oil. That's at least 60% of my normal diet. I also need to increase my activity levels. I can't decide which is easier.
