Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers — Mary Jane’s Last Dance (live).
What’s on your mind?
‘Ere, this bowl’s yours, Suz…! Kaff, koff…! ;-)
aloha tut — tis a night for a bowl for sure. how’s paradise tonight?
i’m scheduled for major knee surgery on wed
Getting the Bar set …
An old photo, recently found. 1979 Eiffel Tower, Paris, France.
i ain’t gonna be dancing for a while — may be as long as 12 weeks with no weight bearing on the right leg
stephanie said my right ankle has more colors than a grateful dead cd and the ortho tech who took off the dressing added ‘or a tshirt’
its forking gnarly looking and its the least of the troubles. it will be healed long before the knee
petro! how’s toronto tonight? didja get snow?
Ooh, so what was the prognosis today, Suz…? ‘Major Surgery’ sounds mighty ominous, M’dear…! 8-(
Bogus, man. How long will you be on crutches??
wmd! how ya doing tonight? can i have one of each please?
hey bfl — how’s the city beautiful tonight? i answered that in #6
*ouch* Not a good sign in the least…! 8-(
That sounds so terrible — 12 weeks. How in the world could this all have happened?
12 weeks? crap. That is just not fair, Suz.
We’re hoping for some, Friday night and perhaps on Saturday.
Howzabout a Jumbo Irish Coffee with whipped cream & sprinkles ?
A friend does their IT, and gets a 40% discount…
the femur came crashing through the knee joint and ‘pounded’ (the word the doc used) the tibia head at the patella plateau. it pushed one side of the plateau way way down. there is also a nasty crack on the tibia head just where it starts to curve out to form the head and it doesn’t go all the way through but ….
the plan is to lift up the depressed bone, using bone grafts to help keep it up and then put a plate on the outside (fx side) with screws holding it all together.
everything today is just as estimate after cat scan etc. won’t really know how long i’ll be laid up until after the doc puts me back together again.
and i was told that this injury is the type of injury that tends to end up with a total knee replacement later on. however on the plus side, altho the injury site is hard for the surgeon to get to, it is the best site for healing since its towards the back instead of the front of the tibia.
doc warned me that i might be overnighted at the hospital post op.
didn’t drop the baby so all’s good :)
hey ce — how’s cleveland tonight?
Are we talking about total reconstructive surgery on the knee, or what, Suz…? Either case, you’ve got my best healing vibes headed your way the next 4 mos or so…! *g*
Well, I kinda lied, I said I wasn’t going to stay up this late but I gotta tell ya, she ain’t kidding about the neon ankle but she still has a sexy little toe.
Smooch baby, email me and If I don’t have to work a twelve hour day I will try to come torment ya in person.
ya know I love ya, hugz and g’thud.
senator! i think that’s a worse case kinda guess and am hoping that post op will be shorter than that. jens original estimate was 2 months and it was reduced to 6 weeks.
how’s sac tonight?
‘Ere ya go!
perfect babe! slide a big one down the counter.
That’s alot of ifs and buts in there…! 8-(
must be soooooo nice
On it’s way … lemme know when you’re ready for another.
Hey! Love the track, Suz!
Didn’t drop the baby! Thank goodness. Man, we are WORRIED about you. I’m home, all is well — the Ennis clan met with great cheer.
Sounds like a good recovery plan is in order. I recall you transferred your healthcare from California to Oregon division so only the best therapy from them. the best meds for pain. And a good floor plan for you all so no more accidents occur. Best wishes for a fast and better than complete recovery. Is the good knee OK?
A friend feel off of a mountain while back country cross country sliing. Hi hip was shattered. He has similar hardware below the trocanter on the head of the Femor. He is back surfing very well (is an instructor). No more pain.
not a total reconstruction.. just fixing that one section of the knee — estimated 2 to 3 hours of surgery
busted! babe, i would run and jump in your lap but…. well *grin*
Aw Suz! What can I say? It sounds really tough.
But I suspect you will be tougher.
tuez! sorry, got interrupted and didn’t see ya there… how ya doing tonight?
That s-u-c-k-s. You’re on the prayer wagon, lady.
TCB? oh it’s the same. eli was here monday!!!!!! I wish he’d have taken me back to NJ. I’m sick of here. Gotta get outta this place.
Hugs Suz, I’m sending my healing thoughts and good wishes out to you. Better days are ahead, right?
Pakalolo for CTuttle.
that some good shit dood *cough*
How are you?
they really won’t know until they get in there and start the fixin…..
hey starbuck — it sucks for sure but it is what it is.
at least now i know the road i’m on. how’s the east side tonight?
you’ve been talking about moving back north… what’s holding ya back?
hey margot — how ya doing tonight? once wed hits, i’m full tilt on the road to recovery instead of ‘on hold’
Hi Chris! I’m OK, and you?
Spot on Margot … what Suz needs from all of us is gobs of healing vibes … OOHHHHMMMMMMMMMMM !
What are you going to do with Token, during your extended recovery? He’s gonna miss his mom.
Amen, bro. How’s it up north?
Windy…again! Now it’s quiet.
I have to get up tomorrow for those ultrasound tests. 8:15, no food, no coffee no nuttin. For 8 hours before.
For the record, I’ve been employed for 367 days now… 1 year 2 days. I commented on this fact and ended up with more alcohol in me than I planned.
Two weeks off for major surgery.
Hoping for some snow and a snowball fight …
How’s things ?
We drove back from PA on Wed. — total whiteout but lovely. Snow doesn’t stick to the road! Once we crossed the Ohio border, it was all sunshine and light!
Prayers comin’ at you kid
Hanging with your daughters and granddaughter seem like one of the perks of the injury. Another is getting out of the creaky old house in the midst of winter. (thinking positive for you)
It’s supposed to be wintry down this way tomorrow. A winter storm advisory, yet! ooo I am so scared. It’s gonna be like Ohio is supposed to be:)
No remunerative work from June 2007 until Feb 2011…
newton! glad ya like it — how ya doing tonight?
Healing – Part 1
Healing – Part 2
Healing – Part 3
now that i know what’s what, i can deal with it and get used to the idea etc. if i had dropped her, not only would she have been hurt but i could have landed on her and that would have been a devastating injury.
Quadruple congrats then.
Hopefully, you’ll be able to recover in time.
Dayam, the Great White North ain’t so white these days…? It’s February for christ’s sake…! Wtf, over…?
and another one, barkeep :)
Too bad about your knee, Suz, hope it heals well and fast.
As for your question, what’s on my mind tonight?
After the fraudclosure sellout I can’t get images of guillotines out of my head. Rabble rousing mobs, pitchforks and torches, etc.
I’m good. Full work day, zipped right by.
SO, what’s the starting bid for the first dance once you’re upright?
On it’s way … with a bit o’ cinnamon sprinkle …
Don’t forget the chamberpots, M’dear…! ;-)
i talked to marie tonight — she owns the canine garden resort (boarding out of their home) and she told me that she is more than happy to keep him — at no charge — for as long as i need him kept. her and her husband love the little guy and he sleeps with them and is best buddies with their dog bean.
she told me that’s what friends do for each other — i was a big help to them when they were starting out and they are just returning the favor.
i’m missing him horribly but he is better off there than here. its rather hectic and both of the dogs here are quite energetic.
THAT would have been terrible. Good heavens, how did this all happen, and why. After four trips to the Philadelphia area, in one week, I have permanent hip-lock. I can hardly walk without toddling. I feel ancient.
Bankruptcy was recommended to me by masiccio and it did right by me. Banks were left crying… individuals that helped me are being made whole as a matter of personal integrity, regardless of legal discharge of their asset (my debt).
fingers and crossed for ya dood. send me an email and let me know when you are back home.
$50 Canuckistan Bucks !
*one legged snoopy happy dance* so glad you are employed (and post op)
oooo that’s sweet margot! i love his voice!!!
By the way, I did send you an e-mail a couple of days ago and it got kicked back. Your mailbox full?
How will the banks be made to fork up the $25 billion they have agreed too? Who will oversee it. The banks again. This is a strange deal and the homeowners may be stiffed like with HARP where people like Mary Mccurnin were stroked by the banks bureaucracy. Their staffs are anti borrower. Taibbi and Yves as well as Dayan have expressed concerns too.
ohmystars…. *fanning face*
I am well suited for my work, remuneration is about 10% less than previous regular job… and I hope that changes with a year’s track record of good work.
Regardless I can pay my expenses and save some, even with Chapter 13 payments of about 1/4 of net pay.
We’ll rock to this Song and many others …
hey bp — thanks :) how ya doing tonight?
Devaluation sucks, don’t it?
OK, Steinlager for the house!
no one has bid babe
nummies! great whipped cream tonight petro
In Dubya’s famous words … No child Leffe behind
It’s a ‘Todd‘ (No, not THAT Todd, ET) kinda night.
i got it – replied — my reply was bounced back and then i sent ya the bounceback and it went through
I upped Petro’s bid…
OK, no one likes beer from New Zealand?
Btw, Suz, I’m a happy camper tonite, the Better Half and I’ve got the munchkin finally, and he’s cute as a button…! ;-)
lost my balance and my right ankle rolled and things went downhill from there :(
Steinlager vs Sheaf Stout…. Australia wins!
*heh* That Kiwi brew is a staple here in the Isles, newt…! ;-)
woohoo! and one more please…
I never got it.
BTW, I was in Beaverton this evening…at New Seasons for a Wellness lecture.
Good stuff. The 25 oz. bottles are some serious drinkin. I’ve never seen it in 12 oz. bottles in CA.
Oh, and Tommy’s Joint on Geary Street in SF has, get this: Steinlager on tap.
that’s wonderful wmd. i’m so very happy for ya — it was a rough fucking slog but its behind ya now *knocking on wood*
wOOt … one Jumbo Irish Coffee comin’ up with Fresh whipped cream and mint sprinkles …
love that song petro
a bidding war?
I’m going to take my +7 self over to the clothes dryer, put dry socks and underwear in a basket, and put myself in bed. Still will do night time PT…
Good night all.
best fucking party on the tubes
A bidding war.
Tsingtao ain’t bad, either.
First of all, I’m sorry I’m so late to the party.
Secondly: dang it, that’s not the news I ordered.
It may be Mary Jane’s last dance, Suzanne, but it won’t be yours.
on the plus side, its been great hanging with my girls and the baby. i told ya being a grandparent was the best dood
i’ll look for it to send it to ya again
aw fuck i snagged the fucking happy lucky 99
just sent it again
Yes, there needs to be an investigation of this.
hey blue — aw how sweet :) thank you. how ya doing tonight?
Actually, I did get it but it came saying:

OK, in an up/down chiaroscuro kind of way. I just got the marketing plan from Columbia today, which makes the thing start to feel very real. On the other hand, there was a note on it saying that the pub. date may be late November instead of October. It’s six of one to me, but I need to know when I’m supposed to get jazzed.
The 99, like the 100, is magnetic, I tells ya!
ah…. yeah i sent it that way so you knew what the problem was *and* could see my reply
i need to know when to get jazzed too dood. hows the marketing plan? do ya like it?
Tis the best, even when they’re cranky…! ;-)
Okay, here is my answer to the contraceptive shit happening this week.
I toned it down a bit, as FDL might be a family channel during the day.
I’m just sitting here lurking quietly and then I see Suz snagged the 99…. and I had to laugh out loud! This time I think it is a very good sign… for good doctoring and healing.
I’m actually not very clever about marketing plans; the simple fact of its existence is what gets me going. But it appears like they’ll send the book (or galleys, which are a pre-production version of a book) to major publications on both sides of the pond, and that feels good. On the other hand, they didn’t like my idea for the cover of the book, even though I thought it was a good one, but it’s their printing press.
Yes. But we have to make sure that the proprietress isn’t putting her thumb on the scale. The last thing Firedoglake needs is a scandal, and this could just be huge.
Suz, good morning llnighters,
esp if its the g-unit that uncrankys them (hehehehe)
Ah, “I see” said the blind man to his deaf son as he picked up his hammer and saw.
dearie! how ya doing tonight?
wow — that’s magnificent tuez
hey nonq — how ya doing?
*snort* good one dood
Bumper sticker Tuez, love your comment.
“pedophiles for Christ”
That was my abbreviated clean version.
That’s not really what I said. I like your version better!
I lurked for a minute to read up and see your prognosis. Outwardly you seem to be taking it with a good dose of maturity (and I suppose a good dose of meds). Watch that booze with your meds, sister. ;-)
doing well! Had a couple of days of work this week. took my dad to a doctor appt today. walked with my pals a couple of times. warm and sunny in SB and down to Oxnard today…. and with fabulous big waves breaking from The Rincon and south. surfers were happy in the good spots.
Off to bed. Gotta get up early.
the good news is e-booze is perfectly safe to take with my pain meds :)
speaking of pain meds, the most recent pill is kicking in and i’m getting all loosey goosey. time to get horizontal.
thanks to each and every one of ya for all your kind words, good thoughts, and making me laugh. i wasn’t always able to not cry today but tonight, i’m feeling the laughter.
g’nite and hope to see ya tomorrow nite for muppets
You should have heard me, “very politely,” rip the local dems on their list of narrowing down the 30 things the local party needed to do to promote obama for pres. OK, I’ll be risking my anonymity with anyone of those people who reads here.
*heh* That could be applied to a whole slew of folks…! ;-)
Sweet dreams, Suz…! *g*
Pete Seeger or U Utah Philips? I know I heard that at a concert decades ago. Love that old stuff.
I hear ya.
I gave up on Obama soon after the election, FISA tipped me off, finally, and he started pissing me off within months.
Since then, my whole reason for being is to make sure he doesn’t get reelected. It’s the woman scorned thing, I think.
first time I’ve ever heard of “e-booze”:….. and I love the concept! Sleep well, Suzanne.
Wrapping my arms around you, sweet dreams.
What is e-booze?
Booze is booze and I’m thinking “E” doesn’t’ make it booze.
Wait E could stand for ethanol and that, certainly is booze.
the drinks shoveled down the bar from one region to another on the toobs…. comfort drinks without any alcohol entering anyone’s system.
Ephemeral or Ethereal Booze, M’dear…! ;-)
A lot of bots, still blinded and high on hopey-dope and I asked what did he do for us lately in going after Walker. Then one of the board members brought out a sheave of “we are the 99%,” stickers to give away. They were switching over to the dem members portion of the meeting and I held back from commenting.
I understand the camaraderie.
I just don’t get the point when it comes to booze. Coffee, maybe.
“Ethereal Booze”…… is that a religious reference? “:)
Wait E… *heh* As I’m watching Wall-E…! ;-)
Yes we are the 99%. I bring it up every time I hear some one complaining.
I suppose one needs to be a Sot like me…! ;-)
*popping in for a minute*
ebooze is imaginary booze with no alcohol involved. sorry for any confusion.. i call it ebooze because that is what petro called it and he offered to ply me with it tonight
it could have been plain coffee — tis the camaraderie that matters – most folks associate that kinda thing with booze and not coffee.
I need to go to bed.
Tut. I can only guess what a Sot is. The google is no help.
May every one’s Friday be a hell of a lot better than today.
I understand that, tues, thanks. The meme going on with this person at the meeting was that Obama=can do no wrong wonderful=he’s one of the 99%. I would have asked and am currently composing a polite letter to the county dems on sorry O has done absolutely nothing to really help the 99%.
I am finishing my tea and then off to bed, pups. Sorry for getting a bit wound up, there. I’m putting my earnest feeling into a different letter to the editor for the local paper, later, but you guys do help me formulate my paragraphs.
Watch out for dogs and baby gates and as I suggested to msmolly yesterday morning, get the young guy to climb the ladder or at least steady it for you.
According to Webster’s…
Definition of SOT
: a habitual drunkard
Sweet dreams, ya’ll…! *g*
