Ah, well, today was fun. I finally got my appointment with the ENT doctor which was good. He got me to peform a number of faintly ridiculous looking tasks such as using my index finger to touch my nose then his finger repeatedly, putting one foot in front of the other to check my balance (which I failed miserably, by the way, and as soon as he told me to close my eyes I ended up grabbing on to his arms to stop me from tripping over my high heels), saying 'aah' a lot, lying down sitting up again....fun stuff. He totally ignored the tinnitus ("well, you've had it for a while...and as for the throbbing in your ear, if it's not in time with you heart beat just ignore it") and instead focused on the sinus pain which I didn't actually go to him about. Anyway he doesn't think it is sinus pain but is actually "one of hundreds of things". Yes, quite, doctor. But all the same he booked me in for a CT scan of the sinuses (which I'm really thrilled about) to check out the sinusitus which he doesn't think I actually have. He also seemed faintly surprised that I had tonsils ("you must get sore throats...not all the time though?" Good one doc). And in the meantime I'm on a nasal spray to sort out the sinusitus which again he doesn't think I have.
On the plus side, he was wearing one of those band things that go around the forehead that have the little disc on the front of them, so he must have been a professional.

i like your new icon. thanks for turning me onto "the league of gentlemen" - i've only watched the first episode so far, but it's brilliant and utterly demented.

hope you're feeling better and all that.

Ah, you're one of us now...I went to see the film tonight, very good I'm pleased and relieved to say! The first series is brilliant, the second series is even better, the Christmas special is an absolute masterpiece and the third series is pretty divisive, but I liked it.
