Um, no.

Just got a call from someone purporting to be from some medical insurance company or other saying I applied for some-damn-thing back in March that would give me discounts on stuff that our regular insurance doesn't pay for. She said I would have done this at a doctor's office or pharmacy.

We have no prescriptions. I can't even remember the last time I went to the doctor, but I'm pretty sure I didn't go in March. So, basically, she had me confirm my address and date of birth and then said they were going to send me this thing...and charge me $30 a month for it.

Dude. We don't spend $360 a year on our medical expenses as it sits. We are disgustingly healthy people. She tried to tell me that I must have applied for it, because that's how they get their info, but I told her I didn't want anything to do with it. I think I just avoided being scammed.

In other news, I voted in the Republican Primary today. For the incumbent in our local race, because she's for choice in education, and for the challenger in our national race, because the incumbent's been in there too long. I've got warm fuzzies for him because he was one of the House prosecutors in the Clinton impeachment trial...but what's he done for me lately? New blood, people.

Since the election was at the library, I grabbed Jim Butcher's Furies of Calderon book and the first season of "Babylon 5." It's been far too long since I've been to the library. I've gotten into the habit of just buying books, rather than borrowing them.

Writing? What is this writing of which you speak?
