    Uh, Grace? This is Dan you're talking to. Perhaps a more effective threat would be, "We won't playfully tickle Ellen until our demands are met!"

    I should wrap this up by saying that Mrs. Prof did *not* just snack. She dug in heartily.

    I just talked the EMSA crew out of taking me to the hospital. I went out to check my mail, had a dizzy spell while walking down the concrete steps to the mail boxes, so I sat down. Real fast and real hard. Then I lowered me to be horizontal. All this under control and without injury. That's what I do if I think I'm about to fall. 95% of the time, or more, it prevents any bad things from happening. As it happens, the postman saw me do this. He called 911, and they were here within a few minutes. Explained to the ambulance crew what was going on, had my blood pressure tested and lights flashed in my eyes, etc. The didn't put up much of a fight when I "refused transport," because I suspect they didn't see anything really needing a trip to the ER. Still doing better than Prof, not that it is a contest :-)

    5:21 p.m. CDT 20170619. I managed to shock a doctor today. My own primary care physician, no less. I told him the story of what happened to me over at UT Southwestern, including at their "Pain Clinic." He was absolutely stunned that anyone, much less THE premiere research medical hospital in the area, would want to use acupuncture and biofeedback on someone with my level of pain. Mrs. Prof, while looking up the name of the person we want me to be referred to, found a rating (1–5 stars) for the UTSW pain "doctor." It was two stars. The new person is rated at 4½ stars. Needless to say, my doctor agreed to the new referral. I shall not be returning to UT Southwestern. My PCP also looked at my right leg and agreed with the podiatrist's diagnosis of mild venous stasis. No need for Lasix this time around. Compression stockings will do. To wrap up for now, @The Old Hack: your gift of Parmesan-coated sausage arrived about 30 minutes ago! The picture and description were a bit deceptive—it showed a whole sausage, but they sent pre-sliced sausage—however, the amount they delivered was 4 ounces (113.4 grams), as advertised. (The description has since been updated.) The temperatures around here have been in the mid-90s (in the mid-30s in Celsius), so the frozen-paks were melted. The sausage is therefore chilling in the refrigerator until it comes down to a safer temperature (it's cured, so it's probably safe anyway). Regardless of all of the unusual aspects, I still appreciate your gift very much! I will be relaxing with some of it later tonight, as will Mrs. Prof as soon as she's finished a cycle of syringe-feeding the kittens.

    I would have and think I did, bet scores of $Q that this chapter was going to end with all the feels. The feels are starting now. Either this is going to be over faster than I suspect The Dan is capable of doing :-) or the real end of the arc is going to make me VERY glad my anti-depression medication seems to be working way much better now.

    Come visit my Monster Hunter Kickstarter! Help me reach my goal of 250.000 magical energy units. Regular monsters, then stretch goals of vampires at 300.000, werewolves at 350.000, diamond-created curse beasts at 400.000, demons at 450.000 and dragons at 500.000! If we reach 600.000 we may add the stretch goals of sociopathic lab monsters with Messianic complexes and Evil Overlords.

    Mama Kistune may hate Mr. Raven, but she wants the best for Nanase, and Mr. Raven is one of the best teachers around (especially history, as he could technically be a first hand source for some of it). Mr. Raven is also highly protective of his students, as seen when Abraham attacked the school, so Mama Kitsune wouldn't have to worry as much if something bad happens at the school.

    Yes, YouTube. I understand that you make money by ad revenue. Yes, I understand that the new Planet of the Apes movie is coming up. Yes, I understand that 15-second videos there's no point to being able to skip them since they're so short. No, I don't want to watch the exact same unskippable commercial for LITERALLY EVERY VIDEO I WATCH!

    Mrs. Prof took videos the other night instead of still shots. She then promptly deleted them without thinking about posting them to YouTube. I have admonished her appropriately and advised her to start her own YouTube channel. Her response was, "If I were so inclined." I'm thinking about going into the computer room and tilting her backwards, just to see if I can incline her in the proper direction.

    Based on my observation, they'll be repeating the less-important points for at least a week, and the unsubstantiated rumors for at least a month, but never get around to mentioning the important points at all.

    I'm installing Cygwin, Photoshop, Office 365, Dry Mud Pro, Daz3d and Eve on my new to me computer. All at the same time. Came with Chrome loaded so there is that. Looks like it is going to take about an hour. I have started a countdown to Linux. For every time the Windows Machine makes me yell at it, for a reason that my Linux and OS X machines don't, it gets a point. If it gets to 10 points, I make it into a grunty Linux box. I've shown it the flash stick already. It knows it better be good.

    Prof, let me make a few things clear for you. It is NOT a matter of 'deserve' in any way or form. First, I am reading this because I want to support a friend in pain. Thus, I am doing this by choice. Next, you do not deserve this, either. Health problems happen and they are not subject to our control. And unfortunately some doctors are just not as supportive of their patients as they should be. I am very sorry to hear of your trouble with yours. I am still hoping to hear of improvement in your situation. If nothing else, your podiatrist seems competent and sensitive to your troubles. We will just have to see for the rest. Please give my regards to Mrs. Prof and tell her that we all appreciate her efforts. And take care of yourself, hard as it may be at times. This too shall pass.

    I personally think that Sandy and Swampy are kind of unusual. In fact, they are the only heterosexuals I know of that keep themselves closeted.

    Today is Memorial Day in America. If you know a veteran, ask them about missing friends and listen to them. If it is in your belief system, ask if you can pray for them. Don't thank the living veteran for their service any more than you would normally. Memorial Day is for the dead. Veteran's day is for all the veterans died or alive. The fact that November 11 is Memorial/Remberance day in most of the non-American Anglosphere causes some confusion in some places.

    I'm guessing Elliot's theme (now that the effects of the diamond has worn off) is superheroes. This will EVENTUALLY give him a variety of spells given how varied the types of powers superheroes get are. However, given that he wants to be Superman I bet he runs through THOSE powers FIRST.

    I'd be really ticked off if I spent however much money it cost to get a cat prepped for adoption, only to find out it had to be put down as part of a broad retaliation over the fact that a parent didn't follow posted rules and kept their brat away from the cages. Oh, the story gets better. Read on. The brat mentioned above was the child of an Animal Control worker, as I've said. That worker was one of a group who recently had reprimands placed in their files for failing to properly take care of a group of four kittens over last weekend (claimed they didn't know how to syringe-feed—were told they could have Googled it and learned in five minutes). Two of those kittens eventually died after being taken out of the Shelter. The other two kittens? They wound up at our house. You may have seen pictures of them. Mrs. Prof saved their lives. Retaliation? Methinks it's a probability. Anyway, Mrs. Prof's sponsored cat is now out of harm's way and at the vet, but not before she paid $70 to the Garland Animal Shelter ($10 tacked on for quarantine fees, and $20 for I don't know what). Mrs. Prof is now at the GPAC, helping to clean it to prevent a possible outbreak of some sickness (not sure what). It's been a rough day for her, but hopefully one with good consequences. Hopefully.

    A couple of days ago we had a thunderstorm with the by now way to familiar close strike. Closer than I thought I found out today. One of the "old growth" oak trees in the area between the apartments and the park took a hit. About 1/3 of it is laying on the ground now. Not sure if they are going to try and save it or not. I suspect they will, just based on how may strikes that tree has taken. I can count 4 scars on it, including this one.

    I am sorry to hear of your troubles. I wish I could offer you more than I already have. The only thing I can think of is maybe trying a Netflix subscription or some streaming service along with a set of headphones? That way you can watch something else on either comp or tablet while Mrs. Prof lets steam out of her ears with Law and Order. (This one time I was sitting with my wife and we were both only paying halfway attention to the TV when the announcer informed us that next up was Law and Order: SUV. After we both stopped howling with laughter, I said to her that I bet the rest of the crew on that TV station wouldn't let the poor announcer forget that for the rest of the month. My wife responded that she doubted they would let the hapless woman forget that for the rest of her life. Afterwards we started discussing what Law and Order: SUV might be about and decided that it featured cops that refused to work cases unless they somehow involved SUVs and that the entire trial at the end of the episode was entirely focused on which SUVs were better, the ones the cops used or the ones the criminals had committed their crimes in.)

    I don't think Sarah has enough info yet to guess at Adrian having anything specific to do with Box. At most, I can see her asking if she knows Mr. Raven, following with whether she knows his parent(s), but I think something would have to bring him to mind for the subject to be broached. Sarah is showing how perceptive she is, as well as how kind. It reflects well on her. :-)

    Good! I hope the cars will live up to it. (I am still amused at the low-carb Hondas you told us about recently. At least, I am assuming that their carburators kept exploding because they were low-carb.) I am not much of a cook but I do know that good food is a great balm for the soul. Hope you will have a good weekend!

    B U G G E R M E This makes me kinda sad, but also surprisingly hopeful. Last week I went to my psychiatrist and talked over a few things. I mostly organized it as a preamble for possible employment. Unfortunately because of the doctor's trip (and several other factors I'll not mention) I'll have to table that. Sadly, I've been diagnosed with severe anxiety, Social Interaction disorder, and I'm still waiting for the results that I got from a test, but I may be AD/HD if what I inferred from my doctor is correct. This is good and bad, bad because this obviously means i have to have extended therapy for a while according to her; good news is this gives me more time to write, and on top of that at least this means I finally understand my random spots of sadness; they were probably anxiety attacks, and since i know what they are now I can finally get treatment. Which is going to be a massive relief since those things have been the bane of my existence since I started college.

    I didn't have anything much healthier. I had a Bumble Bee Tuna "Snack On The Run" tuna salad kit, with a few sprinkles of fleur de sel on top of it. I've also moved the HoWe Nuremberg Bratwurst Premium Breakfast Links out of the freezer and into the fridge, since it says to just keep below 40°F (my fridge is set at 37°F). They should be thawed out by Sunday, so we can have eggs and imported Nuremberg Bratwurst for breakfast. If my son is up for it, we're gonna have a sausage party next week. Not that kind of sausage party. He's coming over so we can watch the IndyCar Race from the Texas Motor Speedway on TV. Before it comes on, I'm gonna try and talk him into cooking the other Brats, the Weisswurst, and the potatoes. I'm also going to try and get him to pick up some sauerkraut from one of his local high-end stores before he comes over. Once he's done cooking, we'll have four imported Brats, four Siegis Tulsa Weisswurst for currywurst, plus potatoes and sauerkraut. Mrs. Prof will probably just snack. I think the whole idea scares her.

    Yesterday, about an hour before sunset, I saw one cat sitting on top of a dumpster. About a dozen small cats looking up at the top cat. And another adult cat acting like a sentry at the far corner of the building. I knew that it was the night of the Jellicle Ball.

    Ok, extra effort on Ellen's part can make Greg appear smaller. But the mass still needs to be there. There is a reason why this comic presents the "Gregs" from the waist up. The real Greg now has one and a half meter long goose feet.
