$200 A Plate?

Dang! I got sort of forced into going to this round table dinner last night for psychiatrists and allied health professionals. A really nice drug rep kept pushing me. When she said $200 a plate I figured that it would at least be a really good free dinner.

Dave and Gary were going too. So why not?

It was a nice evening with wonderful food. I had the salmon. The presentation of the food was impressive. So was the taste. They even had this very cool cheesecake that was round with whipped cream and a raspberry candy on top, a little chocolate cookie thing, and raspberry syrup and chocolate swirled in a fancy pattern on the plate.

But I was still trying to figure out where the $200 price tag came from.

We had a pleasant evening and I learned some new things about clozapine. That's the "miracle" antipsychotic that was supposedly going to make schizophrenics normal. I won't bore you with all of that. It's a good drug but the Movie of the Week didn't exactly tell the whole story.

The $200, it turns out, is the honorarium that will be mailed to me at some time in the future.

That's probably just about what it will cost me to have my carpets cleaned.

Jaz was pissed off. So pissed off that she is still holding a grudge this morning. To add insult to injury, I locked her behind the gate in the kitchen for about 30 minutes because she wouldn't pee on her pee pad.

Now we all know that dogs empty their bladders first thing in the morning. Which means she emptied hers elsewhere before I caught her.

Right now she is sleeping on my right foot while I type.

Well. The carpets needed cleaning anyway.

As someone who's had way too many people with schizophrenia in my life, it's good to know that there are new, effective treatments coming out.

My hound aims for the couch when he's angry.

Pets. Can't live with 'em, can't eat 'em.

Brandy's vengence of choice is to tear into the garbage when she is pissed at me and then when I come home, she knows she has done wrong and pees on the carpet infront of me Before I say anything. LOL Dogs!

NO peeing on the dog's bed to teach her a lesson! ;-)

I never found the spot JM. Hopefully the carpet cleaning will help though.

You're right Sangro. I hope that one day we can cure schizophrenia. It's a devastating illness.

LOL Pat! It's the cat in my house who goes for the couch. Wish I could serve her for dinner ;^)

Now that's funny Caly. Of course, when she pees in front of you like that she is saying You are the Queen and Ruler of My Universe O Mighty One.

Yuckie Nelle! Not in this lifetime ;^)
