    Well, time to get moving.

    I have to pick up Nicky's contacts, get some stuff at WalMart and stop at PetSmart for dog and cat food. Fun, fun!

    They're all the same, muggs.

    Btw, just so we can bore the crap out of everyone else in the LTE: I'm going to see Don Pasquale (Donizetti) tonight. Also Nixon in China on Wednesday and La Boheme on the 25th.

    You're buying ibuprofen. Motrin/Advil are brand names for the ibuprofen generic.

    I almost always buy generic, but my hubby and Shannen swear there is a difference. I only take ibuprofen and the store brand works just as well for my headaches as Advil.

    I always buy Motrin. I've never bought generic. That's just how I roll.

    I'm sad watching Andy Pettitte say good bye. Damn I'm going to miss watching him pitch in the Bronx.

    Sometimes there is a difference. maybe not with ibuprofen but with other drugs. I know lipitor and the generic statin aren't exactly the same. Also, it depends on the manufacturer for the generic.

    Motrin doesn't agree with my stomach and I was told today to try advil. But aren't they more or less the same?

    Exactly the same. Although my wife swears by Advil

    Sort of.

    OTC Advil and OTC Motrin are both 200mg ibuprofen; Rx ibuprofen is 400,600,800

    I was gonna say that you can get Motrin RX for larger doses, but not Advil.

    But you're the drug dealer!

    Wouldn't it be easier to take one pill as opposed to 2, 3 or 4?

    I guess so. Maybe if I someone had trouble swallowing or something.

    Then again, the smaller pill would probably be easier.

    Happy Friday folks. Few more hours of work and then a John Mellencamp concert in Waterbury tonight.

    I'm jealous. I'll have to go to the Met website and see who is performing because I've lost track of this season.

    I'm sure they're using the same stage production of La Boheme that I saw last year which was outstanding.

    They gave me a script for 800 mg of Motrin after my surgery which became 800 mg of generic Ibuprofen because my insurance requires to substitute generics when they are available (which is fine with me). The only benefit was it was dirt cheap because the insurance picked up the cost. My true out of pocket cost of taking 4X 200 mg of OTC ibuprofen would have been much higher than the script I was given for 800 mg.

    Afternoon, LTE!

    I was freezing when I went out earlier today, and by the time I was headed home, it felt so much warmer (I think it was around 34). I cranked the heat, put my "butt warmer" on and opened the sunroof! The breeze felt so good.

    I'm guessing it'll be late April/early May before I'm brave enough to open my windows!

    I used the A/C in my car today. I wish it was a little brisker here right now, to be honest.

    I opened the windows in the house for a couple hours today. Comparatively speaking to recent weather, this was like a Spring day today.
