On karaoke on Friday, I was all prepared with a long list, but the majority of my songs were not in the book. While not horribly shocked about all of the gaps, I was still bummed. But I managed a pretty long and fun set. (Songs with an asterik are ones on my pre-made list! I'm not revealing the unsung songs, but I did save the scrap of paper so the next time I order a custom disc, I can make more dreams happen.)

- **I Can't Tell You Why -- The Eagles
- The Jump Off -- Lil Kim (with [livejournal.com profile] dommeyourass)
- **Can't Go for That -- Hall & Oates
- To Be With You -- Mr. Big (with [livejournal.com profile] vfc, also when I called [livejournal.com profile] anjymama in honor of her birthday)
- I Know What You Want -- Busta Rhymes & Mariah Carey & Co. (with [livejournal.com profile] dommeyourass and [livejournal.com profile] blondestallion)
- Walk Away -- Kelly Clarkson (this was supposed to be Herman's Hermits' There's a Kind of Hush, but the laserdisc was skipping so I made a last minute substitution)

I feel like I'm missing something.....maybe not.

Today I went to a new dermatologist, who is part of Northwestern Hospital. Holy cow, that place is overwhelming and giant and a highly organized well-oiled machine. But my experience with the actual doctor and his 4th year assistant was very positive and while they were quick, I didn't feel rushed or harried. The new diagnosis is NOT discoid lupus, but instead guttate psoriasis. I actually have not done copious googling of this yet, partly because I have a head-cold and slept most of the afternoon away, but I'm sure I'll occupy myself at work between facebook games by reading about it. The little bit I've done, the pictures seem a lot more accurate to me, then when I was googling pictures of discoid lupus. It still is an autoimmune condition, but it also connects to the strep that I probably had to kick off this whole problem. I say 'probably' because I never got a throat culture. By the way, I will never, ever, ever again do doctoring by phone and let someone just call in a prescription and never go in for follow-up. Because part of my problem might also be that he prescribed the wrong antibiotics course for strep and so depending on my blood draw today, I might have to go on them again because the strep is still floating around my body not totally knocked out. Which would also probably explain why I got all flu and feverish a few weeks ago, why I haven't been as energetic in general (I was assuming change of weather/depression), why I have a cold right now. This also fits with the model that [livejournal.com profile] sugarsmile had hypothesized too, and I have an appointment for more acupuncture tomorrow. However, I have said before "this fits the model" and then it didn't, so really, what the fck. I don't know. I am following an episode of House to the T. I'm just hoping I've passed through the last commercial break and that this is not a two-part episode.

The doc wrote me a prescription for a giant tub of steroid cream. I haven't filled it yet, but the paper says "1 lb".
