@athanas: Yikes! Mine was no where near as bad as that; mine was about the size of a dime, and only one lesion. It’s a peculiar kind of painless maiming – the more you dig out, the better you feel. It’s more psychologically disturbing than painful, though the days building up to the diagnosis and beginning of treatment were quite painful.
Thankfully got through it with only using a knife, no scissors. Just got the lab results back – it was, in fact, MRSA. Which is strange and a little disconcerting how I would get such a thing.
And yes, I checked constantly for triangles.
I just had a pretty nasty little infected abscess in my arm. AND, i had to cut it out of myself, leaving a nasty hole like a bullet wound. The whole time I kept telling myself, “You…gotta…have…discipline!”
Pretty sure it wasn’t Ebola. Most likely Staph, possibly MRSA. Should find out for sure this Friday. The doctor said I was about a day away from having to go to Emergency and get I/V antibiotics.
It’s kinda related…Cleveland has a football team. I think it’s the Cleveland LeBrons.
I am really, really considering staying an extra day at SiglerFest this year so I can hang out with everyone and watch football on Sunday morning. Just something I haven’t been able to do yet.
I haven’t done one of those yet – but I’ve been aching to try! I love the idea of those; just now getting back into a semblance of health to do so. Good on ya both!
Cards against Siglerism has been a key part of SiglerFest for the last two years – saddle up and come on down to Vegas and get yerself in on the goodness!
If we can afford any other players, The Niners will be ready to bring it! And DA BEARS!
All around the trial by combat,
The Mountain chased the Viper.
The Viper let his eyes off the prize…
>*POP*< goes the Viper!
My only concern is one for Mommy’s overall health. She obviously has some weight problems to begin with. And, unfortunately, brains are very, very high in cholesterol. So feeding them to Mommy doesn’t seem like a very healthy thing to do.
Well, if nothing else, it gave Ned Stark the boogeymen he was searching for. Littlefinger must have known, as he was on the small council as Master of Coin, that King Robert was going to go to Ned Stark to ask him to be the new Hand. Robert suspected something was up, and asked Ned to investigate. Littlefinger must also have known (as did Stannis) of the true nature of Robert’s “children” and knew that Ned would discover the truth as well. Lysa added fuel to the fire by blaming the Lannisters for Jon Arryn’s death, which fit in nicely, given what he had discovered.
The question, in my mind, is why did Littlefinger want Jon Arryn dead?
Lysa revealed to Sansa that she (Lysa) had poisoned her own husband (Robert Baratheon’s Hand, Jon Arryn), at Littlefinger’s request, and then wrote the letter blaming the Lannisters, sending it to her sister, Cat.
Yeah, that was pretty underwhelming. In the book, it’s part of a very climactic conclusion, as i recall, and the energy was almost complete lost on screen. It was so quick, i’m not even sure everyone would even catch it. When was the last time they even mentioned Jon Arryn??!
As for the Craster’s keep scene, it looks like ultimately that scene played the purpose of Bran seeing Jon from afar – just as the God’s eye scene did in the book – but just in a different location. So Bran still doesn’t know that Jon knows he and Rickon are alive. But I think Jon knows. Right?
