Song of the Day: 'Bette Davis Eyes' by Kim Carnes

Went to a new dermatologist yesterday my doctor referred me to. As he was examining my begging-for-cancer moles, he mentioned that I reminded him of an actor ... who had died recently. He is foreign, so English is not his first language, nor are Hollywood celebrities. After an awkward amount of struggling, he offered up, "He died of an overdose." Looking to make the conversation end, I threw out "That kid from 'Glee'?" in desperation. No. he said, finally remembering who he was thinking of. Philip Seymour Hoffman. My eyes, not my body, he clarified, probably in response to my look of horror. I won't be going back.
