While I did manage to get an entry in already, here’s my original idea for my Mule Design’s Mule Nog holiday party video, though after consulting with Susie Cagle and fighting with my crappy scanner, I’ve decided the project is in turnaround until I can hire some cheap animators in the third world somewhere.  Unless I get an invite and a have a few days until the party, in which case maybe I’ll work on it some more.

Waiting for Flashman to get some shots. He’s being perfectly well behaved and roundly adored by the staff here at the SPCA Veterinary Hospital.

Friday Flashman: Dreaming of a land where felis silvestris catus roams free, feasting on defenseless hordes of adorable marsupials, Sir Harry looks out the window and sighs, certain the warier vermin common to the neighborhood’s hemisphere must be enjoying a mocking laugh at his captive expense.

"This movie means more to me than any other movie. It is far superior to knock-offs Xanadu and Skatetown USA. Roller Boogie is the Holy Grail of the roller disco movement."

Watch Roller Boogie Online | Netflix

Can’t remember exactly how I got here, but not even having watched the film I already agree with the review somehow and feel as though I’ve found an holy grail.

"“Everyone wants to feel that what’s important to them can be serviced in their labor,” Moreton said. Wal-Mart, she noted, “managed very cannily” to allow workers to feel that their values were being respected, so that they could get away without providing for other needs—like a living wage."

Friday Flashman: Doing his best Edmond Dantès, Sir Harry has been running vigorous laps up and down the length of the apartment and practicing aerial acrobatics behind bars, biding his time until a wider margin of opportunity provides freedom and the means to exact his delicately plotted revenge.

Here’s the full set of x-rays from after the accident, then after surgery.  Oh, you want to see some skin, do you?  Fine. Below, the photo taken at my request by a member of the surgical team which I posted to Twitter shortly before I left the hospital.  It’s only a little less angry looking today, but still hot enough for Doctor Kandemir to take some pinup shots of his own for posterity during the morning consult.

Speaking of the consult, I’ll be in a sling for the next six weeks, at least. But in the meantime, I can shower myself (gingerly), start physical therapy and even exercise my legs on a recumbent, stationary bicycle!  However, the California International Marathon looks right out.  So no qualifying time for the Boston Marathon this year as hoped.

After a two week hiatus, Smokin’ Fast is back and naturally I’m talking about pain after spending the last three weeks thinking pretty hard about it whether I wanted to or not.

Pictured are some before and after images of my shoulder, including the scapular fracture through the glenoid fossa of the glenohumeral joint and the  complete clavicle fracture.  The clavicle was nailed back together with stainless steel, while the scapula was wrapped and riveted with titanium.

That’s right, I’m bringing ponchos back, bitches!

Seriously, want to thank all the doctors, nurses, staff and volunteers at UCSF for what by all indications was a successful surgery. On Tuesday I’ll get a better post-op prognosis once Doctor Kandemir has had a chance to admire x-rays of his team’s handiwork.

Particular thanks to my nurses Leslie and Lyly for not taking my pain-addled bullshit personally and helping me hold on to some independence, and to the hospital chaplain, Imam Ali, for taking a moment on his rounds to let me lean on his compassion when I needed it.

As for my visitors and callers, I hope to thank you all more personally soon. But for now, I’d be in much worse shape without you, and I really do appreciate everyone’s patience.
