I hold no more bile for anybody...

First of all, I want to thank each and every one of you for the outpouring of support these past couple of days...

...especially you, waystone. You were a constant source of comfort during a very trying time.

Dogs don't know it's not bacon!

I spoke to the surgeon today about the operation. As it turns out, the gall bladder was very inflamed and I was very lucky that they were able to get it out through the laproscopic surgery. I'm at my parents' house right now to convalesce. I've been given a prescription for Vicodin, which works, somewhat. Not as well as it should, it seems.

The patient sharing the room with me for most of my hospital stay was an 88 year old man who had some disgusting problem. I don't know exactly what the nature of it was, other than it dealt with his nether regions; I would tune out and listen to music every time he would discuss the gory details with his doctors of family (and when I say gory, I mean gory). Ew. He went in for surgery the same day I did, and while he wasn't returned to the same room I was, I ran into his family and was glad to find out that he is doing fine.

I put a sign on the door to the lavatory in my room which whosamama insists nobody else got:

This toilet seat was
specially designed by the
Torquemada Corporation
for maximum unpleasantness
while defacating.

If any comfort is experienced, please contact
the company immediately to correct the error.

Thank You

I stopped by my apartment briefly to get the laptop and I found the FSM release of Miklós Rózsa's Lust for Life, which was compensation for having several issues left on my subscription. The opening is somewhat bombastic, but the score itself is a sublime tribute to Vincent Van Gogh's work.

...and, of course, some memes:

Wow! Impressive. "We can expect great things from you." You must have
read the books several times or are just really good at remembering
which spell does what. I myself didn't know all the spells until I
started writing this test. haha... In any case, if you wanna talk
"Harry Potter" with someone, message me. I love meeting other Harry
Potter enthusiasts!

George MacClellan
You scored 51 Wisdom, 69 Tactics, 46 Guts, and 30 Ruthlessness!

Like General McClellan, you're smart enough to know what tactical
decisions to make. However, the problem with McClellan is that he could
never sprout the balls to act on his information, and in the end,
that's why Geoge McClellan is only a sidenote in the history books.

After graduating from West Point, he served with distinction in the
Mexican War and later worked on various engineering projects, notably
on the survey (1853-54) for a Northern Pacific RR route across the
Cascade Range. Resigning from the army in 1857, he was a railroad
official until the outbreak of the Civil War. In May, 1861, McClellan
was made commander of the Dept. of the Ohio and a major general in the
regular army. He cleared the western part of Virginia of Confederates
(June-July, 1861) and consequently, after the Union defeat in the first
battle of Bull Run, was given command of the troops in and around
Washington. In November he became general in chief. The administration,
reflecting public opinion, pressed for an early offensive, but
McClellan insisted on adequate training and equipment for his army. In
Mar., 1862, he was relieved of his supreme command, but he retained
command of the Army of the Potomac, with which in Apr., 1862, he
initiated the Peninsular campaign . The collapse of this campaign after
the Seven Days battles was charged by many to his overcaution. In Aug.,
1862, most of McClellan's troops were reassigned to the Army of
Virginia under John Pope . After Pope's defeat at the second battle of
Bull Run, McClellan again reorganized the Union forces, and in the
Antietam campaign he checked Robert E. Lee's first invasion of the
North. He was slow, however, to follow Lee across the Potomac and in
Nov., 1862, was removed from his command.
