109. Merry Christmas Once Again

Okay, so yeah… I’ve been out of it. And I’m basically just back to say Merry Christmas before heading back into the land that internet forgot. Well, just my mother’s really, but it’s hard to use the internet at her place.

But for those who were wondering, the surgery I had went very well, and I no longer have any extraneous parts, and was able to keep all my original parts, which was exciting given I was told I would need to have some rather significant parts removed. (Click on the links there if you want to know what I’m talking about. For some reason I don’t feel as private about it now that it’s over. Weird.) I recovered quite quickly, with no complications, but my mom insisted on keeping me under her roof for about 3 weeks. And then I came home, rejoiced in my freedom and was promptly hit with another bizarre illness – benign positional vertigo. Something I would not wish on my worst enemy. Truly the worst thing I have ever experienced. Dizziness for 3 days straight. I don’t know if I can even begin to express how awful that was.

But it is over and I am fully functional now, and headed back to my mother’s for Christmas. We’ve got loads of people visiting from Bermuda as well as my Aunt from the States, so it should be a good time. I do really love this time of year, no matter how stressful family can be.

Anyway, I thought I’d leave you all with a little gift. I found this clip today, and it has nothing to do with Christmas but it brought me much joy. I think that the next time I find myself teaching English to children, I should include the phrase “put my pimp hand down”. So here you all go, with my love! Enjoy.

Anyway, I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas. Here’s hoping I can get back to blogging regularly in the new year.

So good to hear the vertigo has passed. Love reading your tales even if they are a little less frequent now that you're back in your homeland.

Have a blessed New Year.

God bless, and I'm so glad you're all still in one piece. ;)

hey, grant here - just wanted to say (again!!) how psyched i was to meet you at the conference. my somewhat lame and underpopulated blog is armoredcity.blogspot, if you want to check it out.

Now I just need to meet Brady and my list of gay celebrity meetings will be complete.
