Hi Clareified readers. Dawn was admitted to the emergency room last night. She’ll be in the hospital for at least a week. She should be fine, as apparently removing organs are just simply all the rage these days. She is already cracking wise from her hospital bed, so hopefully that means her recovery has already begun. Leave her lots of comments, both here and on Facebook, and buy her lots of presents. If there’s someone’s love that is always purchasable, especially in times such as these, it’s hers. Also pray for her speedy recovery, if that’s what you’re into.

Conversation in Dawn’s hospital room:

“You’ve been here since last night, right?”- Dawn’s hospital roommate to Dawn’s mom

“Yes, I was going to leave but then the doctor said they were going to operate today”-Dawn’s mom

“You remind me of me and my daughter. No matter how old they get they’re still our little babies.”-Roommate

“Some more than others”- Me

A morphined up Dawn gives me the middle finger.

And it was the second middle finger of the visit from our patient.

UPDATE: Dawn’s surgery went well and there is a possibility she will be out of the hospital tomorrow. And then watch out world because she’s looking to steal a gall bladder.

You know, good thing he’s never made fun of Ted Kennedy or sniped about Mary Joe Kopechne, else this could all seem a wee bit karmic.

You heard it here first!

Obama will make an historic choice for VP!

Washington – Democratic White House hopeful Barack Obama said on Sunday that he will pick a vice presidential running mate who will “help me govern” and not just somebody “who I send off to go to funerals”.

Obama, in an interview with NBC’s Meet the Press, said his vice presidential choice would be “somebody who can help me govern, who I can work with, who has a shared vision”.

“I’m not interested in a vice president who I send off to go to funerals,” he said. “I want somebody who is going to roll up their sleeves and be willing to work.”

There’s only one person who fits the bill. One person who will be as dynamic, hot and magical enough to balance that ticket…

Barack Obama!

Imagine it, TWO Obamas for the price of one. Obama/Obama ’08!

Uh oh

The screen is melting melting oh wht a world.

Question of the day

First place team says…what what????

That’s a good party

Sunday, July 27th, 2008 by Dawn Summers

A Yorkshire terrier was found dead in a washing machine Wednesday, the day after one of its owners hosted a party at a Nantucket home, police said.

Police believe the 8-year-old dog, estimated to weigh about 15 pounds, died when it was placed in a front-end washing machine and the machine was turned on Tuesday night or Wednesday morning, said Detective Lieutenant Jerry Adams of Nantucket police.

He said a daughter of the family that owns the house on Cliff Road, where the party took place, called police at 2:50 p.m. Wednesday and said she found the dog in the machine.

Can’t you just picture how this went down? Everyone is dancing around, the floored is littered with empty liquor and beer bottles, someone accidentally kicks the plug from the wall, music stops.
“Now, what?”
Says a partygoer.
“Put the dog in the telly?” queries another.
“That’s daft, man. Dog can’t go in the telly…but…”

No one believed me when I said this war was coming…even the little children know!

An 11-year-old boy is enjoying a flash of fame in Brazil after biting a pit bull terrier that attacked him as he played in his uncle’s back yard, local media reported.

Gabriel Almeida, who lives on the outskirts of Belo Horizonte in the state of Minas Gerais, broke a canine tooth when he bit into the dog’s neck to fend off an attack.

Since then, he has been pampered in the studios of several TV stations, where he has been recounting his ordeal.

“I grabbed him by the neck and bit,” he told O Globo newspaper. “It’s no big deal. It’s better to lose a tooth than to lose your life.”

There isn’t anyone slaving away in NYC’s high rise buildings that doesn’t know about seamlessweb. I don’t remember exactly when they were introduced, but I think I was still a junior associate at Old LLP — so maybe around 2003. It’s a great online food delivery service that offers hookups to all the restaurants in your area. You can get chinese or thai or burgers, on any given day, all through one website. It was pretty cool. I wish they’d hurry up and get to my neighborhood, so I could order from home, as well, as work.

Inspirational Prof dies

“I mean I don’t know how to not have fun. I’m dying and I’m having fun. And I’m going to keep having fun every day I have left. Because there’s no other way to play it,” he said in his Carnegie Mellon lecture. “You just have to decide if you’re a Tigger or an Eeyore. I think I’m clear where I stand on the great Tigger/Eeyore debate. Never lose the childlike wonder. It’s just too important. It’s what drives us.”

Youtube his video if you haven’t seen it. Good stuff. I think I’ve always been a Tigger hiding out in Eeyore’s body.

Not so random question

So, if Obama loses, will he spend his beard growing days of misery wondering why he was touring Europe instead of swing states?
