You say it's your birthday? Well it's my birthday, too

Happy birthday to me, yada yada yada and thing. I'm 37 now, but I'm still telling people that I'm 29 plus sales tax. Not that I'm getting any bidders.

I have been sick. Very sick. The kind of sick where you lay around (lie around? oh, fuck it) and hope to die. The kind of sick where I have been in and out of the hospital. The kidney infection is supposedly gone, yet some symptoms remain, and now they are suspecting an underlying auto-immune disease, like lupus or some such. Fun stuff.

I must apologize, as I have not been reading anyone's blogs. Thank you all for checking in on mine. Old Knudsen has been kind enough to switch me to Blogger Beta, so hopefully everything is going okay with that.

I will be recuperating for a few more weeks, and have more doctor's appointments. I will try to resume normal posting after the first of the year, or possibly sooner if I feel better.

Merry Christmas, Happy Solstice, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, or Bah Humbug, depending on your religious persuasion or lack of same.

Old Knudsen's Update

I was sitting in me hoose minding me own business with a mug of Ox-tail soup and the broken doon R2 unit in the corner started beeping to life. Suddenly there was a light and shining from the crappy looking droid was the holographic image of Fat Sparrow. Thank fuck she couldn't see me as I was halfway through a dungy in my commode chair, some soup and a shite and all is right with the world.
She looked tired and wretched but I was able to totally see doon her top. In that whiney accent that those yanks have she said,"help me Old Knudsen you are my only hope" .
I listened as she explained how her system was compromised by the onslaught of syphilis and that, no hold on, to be honest I wasn't paying that much attention, she has a kidney infection and shes in a good bit of pain but her antibiotics seem to be slowly working.
If she lives I'm sure she'll tell it better than me, she just wanted me to post to let you all know what the score is and that she appreciates your kind thoughts.
