    Telemedicine - at least, the kind my employer is pushing.

    For $49, I can video chat from special office within our building to a random doctor.

    I see no value in this. If I need to see a doctor, I want one who can poke and prod the appropriate places. Id also prefer one who is at least a little familiar with my medical history.

    (I apologize if I have complained about this before.)

    There are some people who just need a prescription refill for a chronic condition, I guess that would be useful.

    I ordered clothing from a mail-order company. The nightshirt has a pocket. The pants do not.

    I have pajamas like that. I hope mine look different than yours.

    (Blue and black plaid, if you want to check.)

    A grey nightshirt with a pattern of romping cats and balls of yarn. I made myself a pair of pajama bottoms in blue and black plaid once, though.

    I jumped up to go to the kitchen to get my hotpads with a blue-grey
    background with a pattern of romping kittens and balls of yarn, but
    then realized I must have last seen them last May, when I moved
    to a different apartment. It seems like I was looking at the kittens
    just a few weeks ago. Counting how many different kittens were
    in the repeating pattern. Something like 15.
