Stories are never short.

Still working on that short story Aggie challenged us to a while back.

Feh.  Some short story.  Upwards of 15,000 words and 80 pages. Hoping to wrap that up soon.

There’s a teensy hitch however.  I noticed that the donor bone location for the neck fusion had a wee bit of… black.  Started messing with it and got black, red, and yellow ooze.  So, now I’ve had a nose swab, blood work, urine test, and tomorrow I go back for maybe a CT scan and a IV lock.  If I’m lucky I’ll get to do my own IV antibiotics for the next two weeks.

So it would explain why I’ve been so punked for weeks on end.   Joyjoyjoyjoyjoy.

On the good side the surgeon who did my neck was tickled with the improved arm strength.

Go check out Damon Darlin’s article at NYT.  Sausage wrapped in a webbing of bacon and then smoked.  5000 calories and 500g of fat.  Makes me want it all the more, it does.

It isn’t news but I’m still steaming about Ruth Bader Ginsberg, the most humiliating SCOTUS member of my life to date.  She took that honor from O’Connor with her little remark:

I would not look to the U.S. Constitution, if I were drafting a constitution in the year 2012. I might look at the constitution of South Africa. That was a deliberate attempt to have a fundamental instrument of government that embraced basic human rights, have an independent judiciary. It really is, I think, a great piece of work that was done. – SCOTUS’ Ruth Bader Ginsberg

At first when I heard that I thought it was a cruel joke.  Nuh-uh.

Seriously?  She has never read the Constitution?  You would think that ours wasn’t an attempt at those very things.  We’re a very young country as those things go and yet we’ve got a pretty darned old Constitution.  It allows for change but not frivolously so.  It isn’t meant to be a living document and it is meant to give the most freedoms possible.
Someone, please tell me why a Supreme Court Justice is someone who is misrepresenting us in other countries, in particular one with a really frickin’ shitty human rights record.  She’s a member of the highest court in the US, not a friggin’ liberal.   Ok, that didn’t come out right.  She’s not supposed to represent us in a lib capacity.
