Just a bit of a postie for y'all. I have heard from a few of you that you are having a hard time posting comments on my blog and this just sucks for everybody. Blogger keeps taunting me to switch over to new Blogger, then it tells me it is unable to switch me right now because one of my blogs (this one) is too big. Try signing out of whatever account you have then posting as "other". I had success that way for a time. I don't understand why these problems exist and it is just plain frustrating.
My health is improving fast. I appreciate all the support in the comments, IM's, and emails that I have received from some of you. This is another thing that I don't understand: why the hell I have been getting sick so much in the past year? I've been to my doc and he says I just have elevated, not high, blood pressure and could lose some more weight. He did give me a high five for what weight I have lost over the past year, though. You got to know my doc. He loves to get in your face about anything that you are doing wrong, healthwise, but he is pretty cool about it. He is one of the best primary care physicians in the county, which is outstanding. He would have picked up on anything that was seriously wrong with me. I think my stress levels have been pretty high in areas that have caused some fatigue to my immune system. The important part is that I am able to eat, finally, and I am no longer extremely dehydrated. My rib cage is still hurting, though. Whatever freaky monkey crud I got sure put some serious leverage behind my projectile vomiting. I couldn't catch my breath, it was so frequent and violent. I, at one point, thought of going to the ER, but I started to slow down with the pea soup production and just made the scary monster noises (hey, I was thinking of you SM).
So, after a good marathon of vomiting, the other, combo w/wastebasket in hand, I just slept, and slept, and you get the drift. Occasionally, I found my way onto the 'puter. It's cool. I haven't got around to visiting all of you, but I will. I am also going to be adding some new friends to my sidebar. I was going to do it on the weekend, but I was busy.
I changed the Youtube clip on my sidebar again. I was going to put Mudhoney's "Touch Me I'm Sick" down there, but I am getting better and don't want to dwell on being sick after this post. Instead, I found a gem in Billy Childish and The Buff Medways. This song is about some old bicycle club "Medway Wheelers". I have no clue if it is based on truth, but Billy Childish is quite the artist, music and painter. I love his turn of the century British aristocrat mustache. He has been in so many underground/indie bands. One of my favorites is The Pop Rivets. They are insanely fun to listen to. They sang this song called "Lambrettavespascooter" about, well, a Lambretta Vespa scooter, no less. I listen and dig this kind of music, but it in no way impedes me from listening to all my Judas Priest LP's. No, I don't feel any guilt about that at all. One of the songs I want playing at my funeral is "Beyond the Realms of Death", so I still need to give props to the Priest. The only question I have is what will my great grandchildren think of their great grandfather's black, steel-studded coffin?
