Still barely.

I've been absolutely buried in work, you guys, that's why I haven't been around. I'm really sorry.

I'll be back soon, I promise. Just have some deadlines to meet.

I'm alive, barely.

Hi, all.

My dad's doing great. Niece and nephew have lived through their birthday party. S. is safe and I get to hear from him for a few minutes most days.

I'm sorry I've been sporadic-to-no-posting. My clients have "gifted me" with a lot of extra work.

At least it's keeping my mind off the lonely, right?

So, I really need your mojo.

My dad's having some surgery today on his foot. And I can tell he's pretty scared about it, and about the impending, very intensive, very painful, very long, recovery.

He goes into surgery at 10:30am Alaska time. Could you all say a prayer or keep him in your thoughts? I'd really appreciate it.

He'll be recovering for 2 months minimum after the surgery, and on some very strong narcotics. So we're all a little worried.

If you could do that, it'd be awesome.

I live in the wild, wild west.

Yesterday, I had this note on my door:

"Dear residents,

As you may know, there was an incident on the property of [apartment complex] this weekend in which a firearm was discharged outside, but within the premises, of [apartment complex]. Thank you to all the residents who called to inform of us the activity.

Apparently, this was a party that got out of control. Thankfully, no one was injured. We are currently acting to remove the residents involved from the property in our continued mission to provide a safe and comfortable environment for our residents.

Thank you,
[apartment complex]."

So um, yeah. The first thing S. told me was, "If someone comes into that apartment, I want you to unload both pistols into them."

I said, "Uh-huh."

He said, "Then you know where that card is with the statement you read to the police officers, right? You know, the one that says, 'Officer, I understand that you are questioning me because I may, or may not have, shot someone.'"

I said, "Uh-huh."

He said, "I just want you to say, "I was afraid for my life."

Yes, dear.

As regards my uterus

Dear Blogosphere,

Please send happy fertility, pregnancy, conception, baby vibes my way.

I really need my sore-ass tits and imminent crankiness to be due to something other than PMS.

Join hands, sing Kum-Ba-Ya, and envision my girly parts plumped and filled with life.

There will be punch and pie for all those who participate.

Thank you,

He's safe.

I just got a call, he's safe and fine. The phone call at 6:33pm yesterday was, indeed, him. *grumble*

Well, today is looking up a little bit although I'm spending my afternoon working.

This morning, I got a call from some friends of ours who were going to be in the neighborhood and they asked me if I wanted to join them for lunch. So, I went up to Chili's with them and had a nice big salad!

Then I went to the store and got the fixins for a huge container of Gazpacho (which is chilling in the fridge) and also some tomato-mozzarella-basil salad (the basil's in my garden). I also got coffee creamer. I am telling you all of this because my life is currently reduced to the shopping list.

I haven't heard from S. yet. I'm starting to get a little bit freaked out, since it's now 36 hours since I last spoke with him. And I fully expected to hear from him before this.


I'm tired.

He did not call last night, unless it was while I was out of the apartment at exactly the time I didn't want to be out of the apartment, driving to the FedEx warehouse to pick up a package that they said they tried to deliver at 3:15 p.m.

Fucking bullshit.

I'm a little touchy right now.

Leaving on a jet plane.

I know. Corny.

But I'm up at 4:00am to take S. to the base so he can go on his TDY.

It's about all I got.

Still charitable? Read on.


If you are not among those of us who tapped ourselves out financially during BLOGATHON and if you are considering a charity to donate to this year, I have another one.

Oh yeah, baby.

My friend Apollo is sponsoring his friend Seth in a charity cycling event called the Pan-Mass Challenge.

They are riding for cancer research. Specifically, they are raising money for cancer research at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute.

I'm sure I don't need to say it, but a great event for a great purpose.

I would ask that you consider sponsoring Seth in the Pan-Mass Challenge as every little bit helps. If you couldn't find a charity that you liked in Blogathon, or if you're like me (and most other people) and have had your lives touched by cancer in some way, please consider doing what you can.

At the very least, please go by and see Seth and let him know you're aware of what he's doing.

If you can't donate yourself, perhaps you can spread the word on your blogs in the hopes that someone who CAN, will.

Make a difference. Here's another chance.

PS: The Pan-Mass Challenge is THIS WEEKEND. So act fast.
