    Two over-easy eggs, a chunk of Brie, and a small serving of pork butt with sesame-red pepper sauce. And a Valium... (Dentist)

    Chuckle... Actually, my dentist is named Boss. That is why I need the Valium... No, seriously, my nerves are just shot when it comes to the drill, and the stuff makes it possible for me to complete a visit that includes drilling without breaking down. Yeah, wuss, I know.

    So. I have a long-lost relation, it turns out. Kinda. My father's cousin was contacted by her secret daughter. Cousin had an affair and went on to marry affair chappie after she was divorced from husband number one. She and husband two went on to have two sons, but it turns out there was a daughter born before the second marriage that was put up for adoption. To add poignancy to this, Dad's cousin was reunited with secret daughter a couple of months before cousin died of cancer.

    My adoptive mother's response? Isn't it wonderful! Welcome to the family!

    I feel slightly queer about this in ways I find hard to quantify.

    I don't have your background, badger, so I hope I am not upsetting you in ignorant ways here, but I like your mom's response. See, long-lost relation cannot help how she came into the world, or the beginning trajectory of her life. She may or may not be worth knowing, that remains to be seen, but I am thinking it takes a big heart on your mom's part to even attempt such a response.

    At least, that is my first thought, without further consideration. In real life I wouldn't invite her to my house or introduce her to my kids until I had a good handle on her values and personal choices.

    So, who is her daddy?? Is it husband number two or another man between husbands one and two? BTW, that is exactly how my own father was born - between grandma's husbands number one and two. He got the surname of husband number one, but husband number one had already run off and stayed gone (honestly) without serving divorce papers and grandma made it easy on herself by declaring the son by the affair as issue of first husband. It gets really interesting after this, but those are stories for another time.

    My mother tells me that secret daughter is the full sister of the brothers, so husband two's child. I have no problem welcoming secret daughter with open arms - family is a more-the-merrier institution, I believe. What troubles me, I think, is that this welcome from my adoptive mother is untinged with sadness for what brother and I are missing out on. My own birth family are such a clusterf**k that there will never be a joyful, uncomplicated reunion; however, brother may well have a 'normal' birth family and siblings. He refuses to look for them because he thinks that to do so would be to 'diss' our adoptive parents.

    It's the unreflectiveness of my mother that annoys me.

    I worked another exam yesterday: 10.5 hours of watching nervous people sit outside consulting rooms and collecting score sheets. There were three circuits of 14 candidates and two exams for each circuit - so 84 candidates took the exam yesterday. The lead examiner said it was a great day for women's health. Cynically, I wondered if women's health really needed 84 more private specialists (they tend to leave the public system once they are qualified). I wonder how many passed. One candidate was stoned. Perhaps he goes to work like that? (It's usually the anaesthetists you have to worry about - getting high on their own supply.)

    So. This whole 666 Fitness gubbins has yet to be fully instituted. However, I can now squat like a dominatrix. In heels. So, all is not lost. And, while we are talking heels, I bought these (in them I am 6'3" or fractionally taller):
