Well, I found out it seems I don't have pancreatic cancer (as I thought I might), that's a good thing.

Not bad at all

I've been chatting online with a very lovely girl who I have a lot in common with. We both have a love of Diners and terrible B-pictures. The moment she told me of her admiration for Charles Bronson my heart skipped a beat and I knew I was in love. I now have our first date set for next weekend. We will be heading downtown to see Casablanca at the Alamo Drafthouse. With this kind of film selection on that day, I think this date is fated to succeed.

Re: The good things thread

A good thing:

I went to the dermatologist for the first time (since I'm turning 50, it's like a 50 thousand mile checkup, you know?), a preliminary appointment before scheduling the look-see. My father had three kinds of skin cancer and I'm fairer eyed and hair. The doctor asked if I had anything unusual she should look at right then. I said my husband said a mole on my back had increased in size. She looked at it, said it was an "ugly duckling," that it was significantly different from all my freckles and other moles, and offered to scrape and biopsy it becuase it was so odd.

Fortunately, no cancer. I'm going to assume the look-see will have the same result.

^ No cancer is definitely a good thing!

I just had a skin cancer screening last week. All clear. I was in and out in about 20 minutes. I'm surprised you're having a separate preliminary app't before the screening.

Re: The good things thread

Propita, I know exactly how you feel - my aunt died from skin cancer, 3 years ago and when I happened to discover a rather dark mole on my back last week I immediately had my GP check it. Fortunately, mine was harmless too. Apparently, when we get older, new moles get darker and bigger than our childhood ones.
Luckily, my insurance pays for a complete skin checkup once a year.
Congrats at having such a vigilant hubby! He deserves a candlelight dinner and a long night

Kirkman, I'll keep my fingers crossed for your date! Casablanca is a cool choice. Last time I saw a movie with a guy it was the Muppets Christmas Carol... Ahem - yes, it's been a while...

{{{{{Australis}}}}} Congratulations, old man!! One worry off your list. Now grab a few buddies, go out and celebrate!

Velocity, enjoy your newly won freedom! I'm so envious!

TSQ, that's a totally cool video! I've always liked experimenting with new food and think it's very important to offer children a wide choice so that they don't start to for examply refuse all kinds of veggies but learn that there are some really tasty ones as well.

Re: The good things thread

Rhubarb just reminded me... The dermatologist did express a bit of concern about a mole on my rear, not because it looks problematic, but because I can't monitor it myself (and I, too, have a family hx of melanoma). When I told my ex-husband, he snickered and asked if I'd told the guy it's been there for at least 40 years. Oh!
