Random thoughts of a Brit living in the Imperial Valley of California

Almost a Sunday Post

  • Just back from the ER having another abscess drained and removed. This one was right on the back of my bum and had become very painful so I decided I couldn’t wait for my doctor appointment on Tuesday. The guy today was very good – gave me a good shot of morphine in advance (head so buzzing right now) – and I didn’t feel anything like the discomfort of the last one. Got some new, improved, antibiotics and we’ll see if I can resist becoming Boil Boy.
  • Last night was the Sony Christmas party at Petco Park. Sony knows how to throw a corporate bash, thats for sure. Plenty of free booze (domestic beers though, ugh), different food stations (burgers, sushi, tempura, and so on), and a great gift giveaway (which I swear was rigged as I hadn’t heard of any of the winners, but I wish I had won the 56″ Bravia TV).
  • Had planned to go see the dead sea scrolls today but I decided that I really needed some more quality ER time so we came back early from San Diego. Waiting for me in the mail was a letter from the INS – my oath swearing ceremony is Dec 14th. So I will turn both 42 and American on the same day. Bummer is that we have a hotel booked in Sedona for that weekend so we’ll have to make a much later start that originally planned.
