On Saturday, NPulsifer hosted a wake for the Toe of Doom 2™. Beth, Barry, and Tanya came up with a wonderful menu (taquitoes, potatoe chips, proscuittoe, pigs in blankets, etc) and much fun was had.

Yesterday was The Toe's date with destiny, or something that smelled like it, at least.

I live-tweeted the procedure, and the saga is collected here.

There are pictures, but nothing graphic.

As of this morning, the half-toe is feeling fine. No particular pain so far.
drpaisley: (siegfried attacks!)
After three days of infusing, Toe of Doom™ II: This Time It's Tarsal looks much, much better. Better than it has in quite a while. It feels better than James Brown. How do you feel? I am still assuming that the Toecapitation will happen, but that 5% chance of it not being done the podiatrist gave me is still in play.

As for work, I talked to the boss about the holiday schedule, and barring a sudden influx of work, my last day will the the 24th, leaving four days to obsess about this and post crap here, there, and everywhere about it. This is far less of an issue than the triple bypass, but for that I had very little time to think about it (and I think they were slipping me some happy juice while I was in CICU all weekend). So this is how I deal with it, by overloading you, my tens of followers, with my thoughts, such as they are.

But it is the holiday season, and to kick off the countdown of the greatest songs of the Xmahannukwanzule, here is a classic.

drpaisley: (mickey)
The PICC line has been inserted, and antibioticals have been infused into my body. I didn't get the once a day pressurized bulb from last time, because it's much more expensive. Instead I have to run a syringe of saline through the line, then a syringe of antibiotics (Ancef, the label says), which has to be slowly injected over a five minute period (much better than the 15-20 minute requirement which has only recently been changed, according to my infusion nurse), then another saline, then heparin, three times a day, at least 7 hours apart.

I left the facility with a big bag o' drugs, and after some failed attempts at Xmas shopping, I got home, and went to put everything into the fridge, when I discovered I had been given a double set of heparin, but no saline. I have a call in to the nurse. I expect it will be dealt with tomorrow.

And then Dragonet texts me to say our insurance co has been trying to get a hold of me, and gives me a number and a PIN. I call, full of trepidation, to discover it's a fucking survey. Good timing, after you've spent several days telling me I can't have the treatment my doctor says I need.

So, off to bed, and work in the morning. Toe of Doom™ II is doing pretty well, though not undergoing a miracle cure. Yet.
drpaisley: (cock)
And the rollercoaster ride continues. I was all ready to get the PICC line installed this morning, but yesterday at 4.30p my contact for that called to say the insurance drones (yo, actual death panels, motherfuckers!) had denied it. No reason, but the one that immediately sprang to mind was that I had blown out my deductibles already this year, and they wanted their tithe.

So this morning I called my podiatrist's office to have them re-up the amoxycillin scrip, so I had something fighting the (not Scott) Staph infection until the Toecapitation. Then, about 2p, I got a call from my contact saying that the UnHumanans had decided I could have the PICC line after all. But not the preferred antibiotic to go in it, which is dispensed once a day. Noooooo, I have to do this three times a day, which means one infusion at work for this week and next.

In any event, I will be heading out to Lee's Summit tomorrow to get a tube run up my arm so liquid antibiotics can be dumped directly in my bloodstream on a thrice-daily basis. I do love the future. Insurance companies can die in a fire. Onward.
drpaisley: (balrog butt)
So that PICC line I was supposed to get tomorrow? Not happening. Denied by the insurance company. No reason given, just "uh-uh, nope, no way." I will spend most of my pre-work morning trying to get the info so I can appeal, but I have little hope of that doing any good.

Next step is to get an MRI approved, to make sure the infection is only in the first joint of Toe of Doom™ II. Who knows if that will fly. Also going to make sure the podiatrist has gotten clearance for the Toecapitation.

As far as I can tell, this is happening because I blew through all my deductibles already this year, and they want this put off until after the 1st so they can get some cash out of me. Well, joke's on them, I won't have any cash!

On the plus side, I did see the podiatrist today, and he said TOD II looks much better than it did a week ago, but he's still planning on surgery. Who the fuck knows what will happe, and when?

I really should have had this blow up in Toronto; at least it would have been dealt with without all the bullshit.

On the off chance that some of you might not be connected to me via all the other social media, a brief recap. I went into the emergency room at KU Med at 4a on March 15, where I was diagnosed with a heart attack (one of several over the week, it appears) and three cardiac arterial blockages. On the 17th, I had a triple bypass. On the 21st, I was sent home. I feel much better now. I feel better than James Brown. So let's have some music, hey?

And here we are on the other side. Since I am off work until June or so, I'll probably be dropping by here a bit more often with whatever I happen to have on hand at the time. We shall see. And get a checkup, people! Plus Opening Day (US version) is Monday (except for the Sunday part [fuck you Bud Selig!])!
drpaisley: (balrog butt)
The Penguin Palace saga continues. Original loan originator finally decided that my classically hand-tooled, artisanal paystubs just weren't high enough quality to prove I had a job, so my income didn't count, blah blah blah. Another company is on the case, and we're still hoping to get this done by the 14th (original closing date), though we're trying to get an extension on that, just in case. Grrrr. Musics are good.

Boulevard Brewing's Rye-on-Rye is back, and I have 3 bottles. Planning on getting more. Still have 5 bottles of the 2013 release downstairs, so there will be a comparative tasting at some point. Plans for the weekend include more packing, getting used to my new glasses, and, unfortunately, attending a memorial service for a friend who died suddenly last month. Just stop it!
drpaisley: (siegfried attacks!)
Well, that was an interesting trip around the sun. Still trying to get closed on the new house, but at this point I am doubting it will happen (the FHA people don't like my paystubs, still). We shall see, like so many things. Onward. To start the year, I am at 59,217 items in my iTunes, up from 42,796 at the start of last year. I need a bigger backup drive, stat. So here's a small sample of the whole.

2) Through The Wall, Bobs

3) (The Angels Wanna Wear My) Red Shoes, Hem

4) If I Had A Boat, Lyle Lovett

And we will crunch through the light snow from Wed night to work. Hoping it warms up enough that we can use the washer, rather than having to endure the laundromat again. One way or another, clothes must be cleaned. And one last (probably) gathering at the OC Saturday afternoon, to see if the Chiefs can keep their season going. All in all, a much better season than 2-14 last year. How soon until pitchers and catchers report (not a euphemism)?
drpaisley: (siegfried attacks!)
Welcome once again to Friday the 13th that comes on a Friday (©Pogo)! Ten days on antibiotics have brought Toe of Doom 2 back under control, though the damage to the digestion will last a bit longer, as usual.

As for my car, the $600-700 price tag replace the heater core, combined with the further corrosion of the right front wheel have led to the inevitable conclusion that I won't have a car of my own anytime soon. It'll go off to the knackers sometime this week.

In house-related news, our offer has been accepted, and Rohanna has been running around like crazy trying to get all the paperwork together for the loan company. Part of the rush has been the desire of the seller (Sisters of St. Joseph of C@rondelet) to get the property off their books by the end of the year, which involves cramming six weeks worth of activity into four or fewer. She and I had a talk Wed. night, and we have decided that if Baby Jesus doesn't get a check for Christmas, that's not our problem. Ro is much calmer now.

In other festive news, Dragonet has been going through training to prepare for the coming tax season for the last two weeks, and was informed yesterday that all of the seasonal employees are being furloughed as of today. No idea when she will be called back. Thanks so much. Have some non-holiday based music.

1) Poisoning the Well, Matthew Perryman Jones

2) Won't Get Fooled Again, The Who (Bridge Concert 1999)

3) Globe of Frogs, Robyn Hitchcock (2010-06-11 - The Drake)

4) Light Pollution, Delay Trees

5) Through My Sails, Soulsavers

6) Dreamer, Ry Cooder

7) Thief, The Ozone Quartet

8) What She's Done To Your Mind, Rain Parade

9) Three Ten Ten, The Last Round

10) More Money, Barry Reynolds


11) Morning Mr Magpie, Radiohead

12) Rogue Wave, The Madeira

13) Sunshine Blues, Bahamas

Tomorrow we go to the new place to measure rooms and start thinking about what goes where and how to make this madness work. Be nice if something would go right, just for a change.
drpaisley: (balrog butt)
I am home, and not in Canadia, taking my rightful place as Emperor of Toronto this weekend. Not happy about that, though there may (given how things have been going, very much may) be some compensation for that on Monday. In the meantime, we are scrambling to get the financing done on the house we have made an offer on. Don't know if I've mentioned this, but the current owners are the Sisters of St. Mary's, who used the place to house some of the sisters. I am thinking we might have to call it Penguin Place should we get it.

In other news, the Intrepid has deveoped new symptoms, to wit drooling coolant and not heating the air coming into the car, both of which people who know more about these things than I (like most everybody) tell me are signs of heater core failure. With an estimated cost of $600-650 to fix it, this might be the end of the road for this car. On the plus side, Rohanna's retirement means that I won't have to take the bus to work in the winter. Anyway, here's the tunes.

1) Fuzzy & Wild, The Ghastly Ones

2) Born Under Punches, Talking Heads (Heatwave (08/23/80))

3) Stranded In Your Love (Cool Calm Pete-Sweet Nothing Mix), Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings

4) Bad Asteroid, The Aristocrats

5) Pyramid Song, Radiohead

6) A OK, Boy Kill Boy

7) Rise Above It, Afro Celt Sound System

8) Forever Young, Spirit Animal

9) Here Comes My Baby, Mavericks

10) Seánce on a Wet Afternoon, Girls Names


11) Good Morning Little School Girl, Leroy Powell

12) Person To Person, Average White Band

13) Out Of This World (Oakenfold Mix), The Cure

Another advantate of being here, rather than at Smofcon, drinking Canuckistani beer, is that we all will be attending the Holly Holly Holly Days sale this weekend. It's probably the best feminist/lesbian/maker Holiday craft fair in the area, and definitely worth checking out if you are in the KC metro area. I'm running late, so just google it. Onward!
drpaisley: (balrog butt)
And another thrilling week in the Belfry. Tuesday started with my car dead (cause: rear dome light had somehow been turned on, and over the course of a week with little driving, the battery had been completely drained), and was highlighted by the 2nd floor toilet overflowing and raining down on the entry. Things have not gotten significantly better the rest of the week. Music.

1) There Ain't No Cure For Love, Leonard Cohen (Live In Vancouver)

2) Golden Years, David Bowie

3) accoustic junction, general fuzz

4) I Keep Waiting, Hacienda

5) 0340 Crazy Tonight = Strong Teeth, The Kleptones

6) More Than You Can Feel, Vanderveld

7) Donzo Don No.#1, Pigbag

8) Spam Song, Monty Python's Flying Circus

9) Brown Sugar, Rolling Stones ("Kings Of Drugs" Civic Center; Hartford, CT 10th November 1981)

10) Do You Remember Walter, The Kinks


11) Solo, Okkervil River

12) Strongest Man in the World, Menomena

13) Intruder, Peter Gabriel

And tonight is Yet Another Skype for the Worldcon bid (have you presupported? Please, do so now! They make great holiday gifts!). Saturday is highlighted by the 100th birthday celebration of Rohanna's mother. And other plans were made, which disappeared in less than 24 hours. I have a feeling that window is closing, and doubt there will be any others to open, ever.
drpaisley: (siegfried attacks!)
Last weekend was a mess. Plans had been made, then fell apart for reasons that were understandable, and no one's fault, but incredibly frustrating given the way this has been going for the past several months. Wound up spending Sat night at ConTraception (KC's adult relaxacon) hanging with frends, and had a good time. Still frustrated, with no change in that respect in sight.

Actually went out last night to see bands with NPulsifer and Gisele. First time in way too long. All three were good, with their own style. Snake Island, Spindrift and Dead Confederate are all worth checking out. Have some other music.

1) Guttersnipe, Bhi Bhiman

2) Mansford Roof, Vampire Weekend

3) 60 Cycles Numb, King Black Acid and The Womb Star Orchestra

4) 1605 Unfinished Turkey, The Kleptones

5) It's Already True, Weinland

6) and so begins the task, CSNY (Royal Albert Hall 6-1-70)

7) Ophelia, Mark Erelli

8) Christmas Morning, Loudon Wainwright III

9) Always Already Gone, The Magnetic Fields

10) You Done My Brain In, Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band


11) Gravity/Falling Down Again/Street Hassle, Alejandro Escovedo

12) Hangers On, Dan Sartain

13) Take Your Time (Coming Home), fun.

And it's everything at once weekend, so up to Lawrence for KanPoly, then back to prepare my special surprise for the KaCSFFS Thanksgiving feast. Once again won't be at Skepticon, damnit.
drpaisley: (siegfried attacks!)
It is sometimes tempting to look at these lists as a form of faux divination (note: they are all faux), trying to tease meanings and insights into life and all that from the titles and bands. In this case, several of them could be applied to certain aspects of life at the moment. No, I'm not going to tell which ones.

Obviously, this has been an up-and-down year. The last couple of months have been extremely stressful, what with Rohanna's early retirement and Dragonet's (fortunately short-lived) furlough thanks to the Feral Children in Congress (®Charlie Pierce). We're looking for a more horizontally-organized house, and trying to get this one cleaned up enough to sell. Long-term changes in income mean far less travel and cons for the forseeable future. If we hadn't pre-regged for Contra last year, we wouldn't be going at all. Ro says she has a plan to get us to London, but I find it best to assume that I won't be there, or anywhere else any time soon.

And then, of course, there's my job, which has had the potential of disappearing at any given moment, but is even more precarious due to a change of ownership of the building we're located in. New management has offered us space, but isn't saying how much it will cost after the renovations are done. Given the boss's health issues and the issues involved in moving the equipment and materials, it wouldn't surprise me at all if he decided to just shut it down, which just adds another layer of stress.

There's a whole lot more shit going on in my reality structure, some of which has been very good and very weird at the same time, and other times incredibly frustrating. Getting tired of having to approach everything with the assumption it will go wrong, but it's what I got. So, see if you can figure out which songs might reflect some of my issues (no, #7 is not one of them).

1) This Hotel Room, Steve Goodman

2) Stinking To High Heaven, Laughing Clowns

3) Shake That 50 Cent (50 Cent vs. The Lovemakers), The Lovemakers

4) Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere, Rheostatics-Bourbon Tabernacle Choir

5) The White Cliffs of Dover, Van Morrison (2/15/73, The Lion's Share, San Anselmo, CA (late show))

6) Duck Duck Goose (Excerpt), Frank Zappa

7) Santa's Too Fat For the Hula Hoop, The Pixies with Thurl Ravenscroft as Santa Claus*

8) La Luz (Chunky Funky Mix), 808 State

9) Why Can´t We Live Together, Timmy Thomas

10) Blackbird (Rehearsal-Session), The Beatles

but wait

11) Sing, Gongzilla

12) I Choose You, James Pants

13) Good Job With Prospects, The Actress

Will see some of you tonight at Contra, I hope. The weekend has those possibilities looming, to what end (nae) we shall see.

*Alas, not those Pixies

For those not on other media, my car was once again broken into this week. Idiots didn't notice the Club™ on the steering wheel, or were dumb enough to think I'd leave the key for it in there. Once again, steering column busted, and probably $500 I don't have to get it fixed. Then I found out last night the van is kaput, most likely the starter. And what with the encroachment of winter, I wasn't feeling at all good about much of anything. But I had a couple of good conversations this morning whilst listening to this set, and I am doing somewhat better. Knowing some things are going to be happening that I had resigned myself to not doing so help, too. So have some music.

1) Sweepstakes, Gorillaz Feat. Mos Def & Hypnotic Brass Ensemble

2) Fade to God, ToToM

3) Waiting On The Stars To Fall, Hayes Carll

4) Crime in The City, Neil Young (New Orleans 3-12-1991)

5) I Wouldn't Believe Your Radio, Stereophonics

6) Haitian Divorce, Steely Dan

7) Only Love Can Break Your Heart, Amilia K Spicer

8) The End (Moonbeam), Harry Nilsson

9) Big Shot, The English Beat

10) Big Business, (Saratoga :: 1983-08-05)


11) World's Smallest Violin, Paleo

12) Angel Dance, Los Lobos

13) Your Bird, Retribution Gospel Choir (2013-02-12 Knitting Factory Brooklyn NY )

And off to work. We'll look at a couple of houses tomorrow, and work on getting more done here. Go Chiefs!
drpaisley: (siegfried attacks!)
We are ch-ch-ch-changing providers here at the Interglactic Casa von Paisley, IGFarben. After many, many years on Time Warner/Roadrunner's tubes, the nice Google folks are coming today to install our fibers. Whether this will make our posts here more regular, who can say.

However, this means that my primary email account for almost 20 years will soon be no more. Yes, farewell to dr-paisley@kc.rr.com. My new addy (it's been around for a while, but now it's the boss) is james(dot)murray013(at)gmail. Boring, pedestrian, all that. Such is life. On the other hand, much faster interwebs, so we'll take it.
drpaisley: (cock)
On the plus side, my car is once again conventionally functional, after the usual oddities. Last Friday I had two repair places giving me estimates on replacing the steering column and the passenger side mirror (fixing the damage from the second time it was stolen last summer). One told me they could get a column and fix it on Saturday, so they won. Then it turned out the salvage yard wasn't open Saturday, so it would be Monday. Fine, no prob.

Saw the podiatrist for Toe of Doom 2: This Time It's Tarsal™, Monday, and since I was in a hurry, he was running way behind. Got done (it's doing fine, but not fully healed yet), raced down to the Firestone on Truman to drop off the car, then walked over to Grand to catch a bus to work. Yes, Monday is normally my off day, but there was a lot of stuff to get done, so extra hours.

About 3p, I called to see how things were going, and was told the parts were there and they would be working on it shortly and it would be done by the end of the day. Shortly thereafter, they called back to say that the steering column they had been sent was stripped out where the steering wheel was connected, and the salvage yard would be sending a good one over on Tuesday. Somehow, this did not surprise me.

Tuesday I caught the bus again, and waited and waited to hear. Finally I called, and was told the replacment column was in, and good, and they would be getting the car into the bay shortly. At 5p, they called to say it was done! Dragonet picked me up at work and dropped me off to get the car, which now can be started with a key*, not a screwdriver, like real cars! And has mirrorz! To celebrate this, and topping 47k in iTunes, here's this week's random selections.

1) Rural Explosion, Mojack

2) The Sidewinder Sleeps Tonight, Oxford Collapse

3) Lady Love, Mike Mains & The Branches

4) The Stone That Speaks, Deadline

5) Porcelain (Force Mass Motion Remix), Moby

6) Bell Tower (Bleek Mix), Two Twins

7) Marlene, Todd Rundgren

8) Upside Down, Bruce Haack And Esther Nelson

9) Moves, The New Pornographers

10) Emancipated Minor, Ani Difranco

and then

11) Heads Will Roll (A-Trak Remix) (Club Edit), Yeah Yeah Yeahs

12) Step Aside, Dead Models

13) Bricks, Hurray For The Riff Raff

Another busy weekend. Rohanna and D2 are heading to St. Louis for Joseph Felknor's graduation shindig, while I stay here and go to the KaCSFFS meeting (it's a picnic, kinda! Indoors! The Writers Place, Valentine and Pennsylvania, KCMO! 6:30! Come on by!), then help out with the Campbell Conference afterparty on Sunday. Should actually have Monday off to start prepping for Soonercon.

*When the mechanic gave me my keyring back, I asked which of the keys on it was the new ignition key, and he looked at me and with a straight face said "Oh, you wanted a key!" then laughed. Came close to going over the counter.
drpaisley: (balrog butt)
I can't say I will be sad to see the end of this trip around Ol' Sol. While there have been a few bright moments, double-plus ungoodness pretty much dominated the year. Without Dragonet's incredible strength (and sick sense of humor), I am not sure Rohanna and I would have been able to keep things together. Thanks to all our friends and family, real and Pretend Internet, who helped us more than you can know. And a very special thanks to all those who helped to get the house ready for D2's return, in the middle of ConQuesT. We owe you, big time.

So oui* present the backside of the coveted Balrog Award to 2012. Here's hoping 2013 will be better (it wouldn't be hard, as Legolam said to Gimlet, son of Groin).

And last but not least, I am so glad none of us had severe hemorrhoid problems, so I didn't have to change the title of this.

To "Sphincter Swim," of course. What were you thinking?

*The Editorial Frog rides again!
drpaisley: (Default)
It's Friday, so there must be car problems. This time it's the van, again. The brakes were re-done before Archon, and now either the thermostat or the water pump is acting up. This, along with the bills still coming in from Dragonet's summer adventure, have led Rohanna and I to determine we can't make SMOFcon this year. Very annoying. Oh look, music to distract me.

1) Straighten up and fly right, Nat King Cole Trio

2) Strangelove, Depeche Mode

3) What A Day That Was, Talking Heads (Saratoga :: 1983-08-05)

4) Forever, Walter Meego

5) No Easy Way Down, Okkervil River

6) White Winter Hymnal, Birdy

7) Tramp, Otis Redding & Carla Thomas

8) Someone Else’s Fancy, Richard Thompson

9) The Laws Have Changed, The New Pornographers

10) Whatever You Please, Steve Wynn (1992-11-06 - Havana Club)


11) Making Love to a Cannibal, Final Diners

12) Wheel Me Out, Was (Not Was) (2008-05-01 Blender Theatre at Gramercy New York, NY)

13) Deal, Dr. John

This look to be a quiet weekend, so I'm sure something will come along to blow it up. Onward and downward.
drpaisley: (cock)
Oh, look, I actually made it this far this time! Way too much has happened in the past few weeks to cover in-depth here, but to sum up: Archon good (Dragonet walked from the hotel to the convention center on Saturday!), work busy (but not enough to get back to full time, alas), fuck cancer with a cactus (not an actual treatment [yet]), Go Cards!, bye Cards, birthday fun. And now some tunes because, well, that is the point of this, right?

1) Key to the Highway, David Bromberg

2) In, Ambidextrous / Morkva

3) Banshee Beat, Animal Collective

4) I GO Wild, The Rolling Stones

5) Creeque Alley, Belle & Sebastian

6) Less is Moi, Yo-Yo Ma, Stuart Duncan, Edgar Meyer, Chris Thile

11) The Drywall Incident, Stan Ridgway

12) Stronger, Mieka Pauley

13) I Am the Walrus, The Beatles

And in the department of What the Fuck Were We Thinking, D2 and I will be participating in the Hallowe'en Hustke, a 5K run (or in our case, walk), with NPulsifer and Gisele. At 8 a.m. on Saturday. When it will be 35˚ or so. This should be . . . interesting. Onward!
drpaisley: (balrog butt)
The van has developed a grinding noise (low, not high-pitched) when the brakes are used. It hasn't affected performance, but is a concern. It's going into the shop tomorrow morning. Ideally it will be a affordable fix.
