Yesterday I finally got to see the doctor about the damn itching. My regular GP wasn't available so I saw someone else, who has kids and said his wife had the same problem. He suggested taking OTC Claritin. I also got some of the Gold Bond lotion (thank you FB hive mind) and both seemed to help last.
Is Bassou Muslim, already? I don’t think so, but MoBob has repeatedly remarked unfavorably on my pork consumption, and I am definitely taking advantage of his absence to indulge. Mmmm, pork.
I forgot to mention that last week I went to the opening night of Arabian Nights Film Festival. Actually this time I only wanted to see one movie, The Source, which I’d seen a review of last year on French TV. Of course I liked the plot (village women who refuse sexual relations until they get running water) and it was a pretty accurate depiction of life in a village. So sorry that MoBob wasn’t there with me to watch. I’d say The Source was as good as last year’s favorite movie, Where Are You Going, Moshe?. There were a number of Filipino and Fil-Am movies screened this year in DC, but I didn’t see any of them. They hit too close to home, and afterwards I just feel sad and guilty.
After the grocery/errands run this morning, I just conked out.
