Techie Temptations

Tuesday, October 30th, 2007

For some reason, I’m getting curious about techie stuff again. I’ve been using WordPress, the software that runs this blog, at barely more than novice level, and I’m starting to wonder what else it’s capable of and how much of it I could understand and utilize. I’d like to add a polling system and a […]

Dumping Excess Gerberage

Thursday, October 25th, 2007

Yesterday, I officially started a diet. I’ve decided to combine two plans: the Carbo-Calorie diet, which fellow comics writer Gerry Conway recommended to me circa 1975 and on which I lost about 70 pounds back then, and the Shangri-La diet, of which I’m highly skeptical but willing to keep an open mind. The Shangri-La diet, […]

Fibrosis du Lac

Robert Goulet goes to the hospital with the same damn thing I’ve got. Apparently, his condition is considerably more advanced. The doctors, though, seem upbeat about the prognosis. Hang in there, Lancelot.  I need all the role models I can get.

Well, he, she, or it is coming in COUNTDOWN TO MYSTERY #4 and is almost as weird as what you’re about to see: VIDEO DELETED Update 10/18/07: Unfortunately, this video has […]

Updates and Excuses

Tuesday, October 9th, 2007

The update: UCLA wants me to have another right-left cardiac catheterization — an angiogram, basically — before they put me on the transplant list. Since having all those stents inserted, I’ve been on Plavix, a blood thinner, and I have to be off that medication for the transplant operation. A new cath procedure should reveal […]
