Unless you happened to notice it in one of the comment sections last week, you probably missed the fact that Brian had surgery this week. Despite his undying affection for Thai ladyboys and a western hemispheric union, Brian's really a fairly private person, so I had not mentioned this before.
He's doing well and will hopefully be back to posting soon.
In the interim, however, I made one discovery and had one disturbing thought.
The discovery is that the blogspot spell checker recognizes the word ladyboy. I'd never actually typed it before. There may be something ominous of a Spenglerian nature in that.
The disturbing thought is that they gave Brian a morphine pump for his first day out of surgery and some serious pain meds (he told me--no shit--that he asked for medical marijuana and was refused).
We all know what to expect from Brian in the course of a normal week: twisted explorations of our world from a perspective that is Libertarian crossed with fan-dancing Ewok. One of his earliest posts, Women with Tattoos, is among the five most highly rated posts every published on this blog; I like to think it's the picture.
But, anyway, here's the scary question: what will Brian post while he's using the dilaudid or the percocett?
Get well quickly, my friend.
