I am equal parts in awe of and afraid of ergman right now.

Thanks for asking. My dad is home and fine, it was a minor thing made worse by blood thinners, though they'll probably do some more tests. My sister's surgery went mostly well. (spoilered because I couldn't decide if it was TMI or not.)
Ah... just read up on what those procedures are. Well, I hope the recovery goes as smoothly and hurts as little as possible. About the TMI thing: allow me a short rant. I hate when anyone says TMI to me or to anyone else. Real people have real bodies that do real things. While I'd agree that it's not good form to, say, talk about the texture of your mustard while someone is eating, I find that often people who call TMI are trying to make themselves look cool by making someone else feel awkward. I think the folks here, on the OTT, don't play that silly game. We're having too much fun playing other silly games.
First of all, thanks to all of you for the well wishes. Just talked to my sister, and she's doing great, physically and emotionally, so I'm very relieved. We're still waiting for the final word on whether or not she needs chemo, but I think there's a good chance that she won't.
As far as the TMI, I use it often as a joke. (One time I said it to my mom about something, can't remember what, some little thing. She didn't know what that meant, so I explained it to her. Later that day, my niece said something about going to the bathroom or something, and my mom said, "Sara, FYI!" Which of course was a lot funnier than if she had actually said what she meant.) But I found when I had my blog during my treatments that I would talk about medical stuff or breast stuff, and some people were uncomfortable with it. And then there's the thing of real life crossing over into online life, but as many have already said, we're all pretty open here. Which is very cool. By the way, have I said lately how truly awesomeful all of you are?

I really need to do something about my day-to-day-to-day work situation, even if it causes me to be in ketchup mode more and interactive mode less.
I hope it works out for you guys!

What's wrong with your eye? Recovering, I hope. *salud*
Doctor says it's past the optical correction phase. I should bump these font sizes and stop reading at night before I go completely blind.
(It's a congenital case, but some situations exhaust my functional eye noticeably quickly, like the word search.)
I'm sorry to hear that, Aluisio. Stop reading at night!
Also, I noticed that your dragon is looking decidely canine lately.
What a cute wolpy! (though he looks a little mopey.)

But I have been up for an hour this lovely Sundip morning - though I will be gone in 600mNP - I have some Molpies to look after.
Yes, the WHO IS ONLINE

Lurking and ketchuping a few newpages back, and saw my name. Blindposting to say "hi"!
It is neat to see all the wonderful stuff in the past, but I look forward to lurking in the present again...
Hi, 42 guests! Nice to see you!

I also don't understand why everyone is obsessed with River Tam (Summer Glau). Kayley is a much better character and way more attractive. I am liking the show overall, though.
You think the dialogue is terrible? You know, when we started watching it, it seemed like stuff didn't make sense, or we were missing stuff, so we started watching it with subtitles. There were just so many funny things that we would have missed otherwise. Try it and see what you think. And of course, some of the dialogue is in Chinese.
ETA to say you sorta have to wait for it to see what the deal is with Summer, but in any case, I agree, I LOVE Kayley.
*Pokes head up from the basement, looks around*
Wow, things still going on over here
Caswallon, so good to see you! Hope you're all staying warm down there in the basement.

He's right, it's not quite schizo-blitzing, but receiving reports from the Present does add a new dimension to a blitz. Robblitzing?@yappo:
You have OTTer fans already, so I"m sure Outside fans will be along shortly!

The Database then looks up if the user has actually posted the key and therefore confirms the users identity.
It would be some programming and I am not sure if there is really interest in such a feature, though the Database could act as a kind of a clearing house for other projects, once it is in place.
The alternative (if not many OTTers are interested in such a feature) would simply be to send me a PM and I would do the registration manually.
Treeish idea! I'm interested in registering either way.
Yeah, and pardon my OTTish, but chirping mustard cancer
