Desanctified's Blog (10)

I DID say I wasn't good at blogging...

Honestly, I have been spending too much time on facebook, and only recently have I started seriously reading again. I find it easier to spend time reading with actual books than with that kindle thing, and I am almost glad I lost it last week. I've gotten through two books since then. 

Work is okay. It is tiring being on my feet all day, but at least I am not just sitting around the house all day. It was nice, too, getting disability for the whole time I was out. I am getting to the…

New post

Well, it's been a few months. I never have been good with journals or blogs. 

Still, I suppose I should make some sort of attempt at justifying my presence here, so I will write something, but the short version. In October, I got sick with a staph infection that necessitated the replacement of my mechanical aortic valve, among other things. I spent more than two months in a hospital far away from family and friends, one of them completely sedated. Now I am stuck at a…

She of the Salt Lamp

Two of my sisters, including she of the Salt Lamp, went on a retreat to a convent in a resort town nearby. One of the two is a true believer - she once told me that she believed in revelation - and the other is Salt Lamp (Sally, for short.)

Returning from her retreat, Sally showed me some books she bought at the convent gift shop. (Yes, that is what I said.) She mentioned that some of them are books that she might use to give at christmas time, and she also mentioned that she was…

Salt lamps...

I am temporarily staying in the home of my sister and brother in law, and I don't suppose I really need to tell anyone that I am most unhappy about it.

There was a time in my life when the presence, at bedside, of this thing called a "salt lamp" would have elicited no more than a simple chuckle and maybe some gentle mockery. I can't say where she got the thing or how much money she wasted on it, but the fact that she left a copy of the marketing material there for me to read indicates…

This week's plans

I get my car back today, then go to lab to have blood drawn... then to general practitioner's.

Tomorrow, 8:30 a.m. appointment with cardiologist.

Next day, wound surgeon.

If all goes well, and I fell up to it, then next week I will start subbing.

Hospitalized

I was going to attempt keeping up my blog here on the Nexus, but then I wound up in the hospital for a month, and am just getting around to it. Still out of work, and need to get on the ball soon. Of course, once I am back to work, I will probably not be able to keep up with the Nexus.

For the record, I had some heart surgery, but now I'm fine, basically.

Aggies

Agnostics are to Atheists what Bi-sexuals are to gays. Yes, many of them exist (and deserve our respect,) but for more of them it is merely a phase.

Just checking the page...

It has probably been months since I looked at my Nexus page. I do check Ivy's humor page almost daily, mostly because I get email notifications of posts on that page. I never get (m)any posts or messages on my page, so I tend to foget it's there.
While I was here, I deleted almost of of the blog postings that I wrote before.

Joseph and that wretched coat.

Okay..

Act I - Some guy's brothers plot to kill him, but sell him into slavery instead. Then he ends up in prison, so everyone sings a happy song.

Act II - The Hebrew prisoner turns out to be the only man in Egypt with a grasp of basic economics, and manages to maintain this monopoly by convincing everyone that he derives his knowledge from dreams. He becomes second man to Elvis (the Pharoah) and in the end is obsessed with getting back a coat he owned for a day many years… Continue
