New Banner

Changed the banner. Actually, it's a copy of the original default theme but with a different banner. If you're a big fan of the burningman collage you can set that as your default theme. Provided you are a registered user...

I like that banner a lot except for it being too tall. Stuff that you're going to see over and over as you return to a site shouldn't dominate the screen. It's seasoning, not the main course. This is the banner that I had on my first web site. I still like it.

Oh yeah... added a link to the reverse cowgirl weblog. As my daughter Heather would say: "that's just wrong!"

norseman http://lubrichs.mine.nu like the banner now - much better Sir . . .

    Hmmm...I liked the previous banner. It was more "colorful"

John / Like I said, it's still there if you want to set your default theme to burningman. It's only available if you're logged in though. It's a nice banner but it's too big and it makes it look like I'm all about burningman. Which I'm not. Not sure what this banner says about me other than that I'm into the surrealist art movement. Most people aren't going to get that though but at least it takes up less screen real estate.

    from michael-- The other banner was friendlier, more <i>attractive</i>.  This banner is more forboding, <i>repulsive</i>.

John / Don't hold back now... tell us how you really feel.

Benway Tupperware Party

Brain (4k image)Back in '92 there was a thing in my leg that showed up on an MRI as a possible tumor. Lumpy squishy thing that almost made a noise when palpated (doctor-ese for poking.)

When you do an MRI you lay on a table that slides inside a big donut shaped electromagnet sensor gizmo. The doctor/tech guy told me a lot of people are claustrophobic. They have to give them drugs to get them to do it. Even with drugs 1 out of 5 people just can't. The machine is so expensive to maintain and run they always have the next patient waiting to go in so there's no down time. I can see why people have a problem with it--they were only doing my leg and it felt claustrophobic. The guy that went in after me jumped off the table and bolted from the room saying: "no fucking way I'm going in that thing!"

An MRI. A picture of my insides. Not everyday you get to see that. Fun looking at it with the doctor. I've looked at a lot of electron microscope pictures so I'm kind of used to looking at strange black and white photos and interpreting them. Verdict: surgery. They weren't sure what it was but were concerned that it could be malignant (something that could kill me eh?), so better just to cut it out.

The day of the surgery 3 or 4 nurses were sticking me with needles to get blood samples for the anesthesiologist, work out my blood type or maybe just collect dna evidence. They stabbed me at least 30 times. I remember one of the nurses saying she didn't understand what was going on--she had never had to try that many times to find a vein. Just the normal course of events for me. There's something about me that causes confusion in people. Jams up the gears of day to day existence. If you know me, you probably know what I'm talking about.

Guess I was loopy. Nervous about the surgery.As they wheeled me down the hall the anesthesiologist apologised: "I haven't given him anything!" They lifted me onto the table. Put the mask over my face and asked me to count backwards from one hundred. I didn't though, the mask reminded me of the one from "Blue Velvet" so I laughed saying: "baby wants to fuck!" Bam! next thing I know I'm waking up in the recovery room.
