A Little Health, My Friends


I'm on medical leave.

After giving it quite a bit of thought, it's become clear that the only way I'm going to ever get "me back" -- after the brain surgery, after all that's happened over the past few weeks -- is to take a little time off. My job, although no more soul-crushing really than that of the average person, involves obscenely difficult hours -- hours which all ten of my doctors have informed me are borderline life-threatening given my condition.

So, for the next two weeks, I'll be sleeping well, eating right, running daily, taking my necessary medication and just generally attempting to take a few baby steps back from the precipice of oblivion.

I'm absolutely ready to start attending to this little experiment of mine again, so look for new posts soon.

That is all -- and don't ask about the picture.

Hi Chez,
as a survivor of two hyperemetic pregnancies, I hear you on the 'tending to your health business'. Best wishes, and feel better soon! Your listening posts have seriously helped expand my music-listening horizons!

whats not to like about MASH?
besides, when you've been drinking, you kinda look like Hawkeye, in your own twisted way. Good to have you back.

Hurray that you're back and planning to take care of yourself! Boo that you needed ten doctors to tell you to take it easy.

Can't wait to see what you come up with; the internets are not as interesting without your contributions.

So that's two weeks of sleeping well, eating right, running daily, taking the necessary medications and just generally attempting to take a few baby steps back from the precipice of oblivion, followed by a return to the borderline life-threatening, soul-crushing job.

Sorry. You know me, the human vacuum of fun.
