Finally Fixed

Posted by Brian Sun, 24 Feb 2008 17:11:00 GMT

I didn’t realize until yesterday that Bluehost had finally upgraded to Rails 2.0 and that it had broken my site. It would have been quite nice of them to send out an email when they did the upgrade. Anyways, after fiddling around with it I was able to upgrade to Typo 5.0 at the same time. Now I just need to move all of my old posts over.

On the plus side my arm is feeling pretty good after surgery so hopefully I’ll be posting more in the future. I also bought the ugliest, most damaged piano you have ever seen in your life for $50. Pictures coming once I get it home.

Would You Like a Free Stress Test?

Posted by Brian Wed, 23 Jan 2008 01:18:00 GMT

Lady: Excuse me, sir. Would you like a free stress test? We’re doing them over on 4th St.
Me: Scientology?
Lady: Nods head
Me: Get away with your bullshit.

I really hate Scientology. Really hate it. So imagine my joy when a very soccer mom-ish woman asked me that on my walk home from work today. Luckily I had been out for a walk a couple of weekends ago and found the Scientology center downtown. Unfortunately the first thing that popped out of my mouth was to basically tell her to fuck off. I realized three steps after I started walking away that I should have dropped into pirate talk and asked if she had been Touched By His Noodly Appendage. An opportunity lost. I do want to go stand in front of their “church” dressed as a pirate and hand out fliers though. Any volunteers to join me?

On another note I can finally type with two hands for more than a sentence without pain, hence this post. My ulnar nerve was caked in scar tissue, discolored, and half the size it should have been. All that’s cleaned up now so we’ll see if things actually get better. I would describe my mood since before the surgery up to now as cautious optimism and it’s going to stay that way until I know for sure if this actually worked. If it did work I’ll most likely get the left one done too and then resume the life that got derailed 4 1/2 years ago.

Surgery Today

Posted by Brian Mon, 07 Jan 2008 16:03:00 GMT

I just got back from having surgery on my right elbow to clear up scar tissue from around my ulnar nerve. Those who knew me throughout college should know why. I’m one-handed right now so details will come later.
