I'll spare you the gory details of my super-minor SURGERY (so minor it required thirty seconds of planning, a local anesthetic and a lot of gauze... in fact, click here if you want to see how much gauze
).BUTT I'll say this:
As the doctor (possibly my favorite, lifetime) is coming in I tell him "Man, am I going to make your day or what!" This was a joke because of where the the problem was located.
"Nah, not unless you've got a tick on the head of your penis, because that's what I was just doing over there," he said, pointing through the wall and at what I have to imagine was an unhappy male hiker.
During the procedure he kept pushing there brochures on me about the clinic and suggested I bring them to work. Despite that, if I were staying in Salisbury I would only ever go to that doctor.
In other news, when I signed up for press credentials for the New York Comic Con (which I did not attend this year) my email was given to every publicist working in genre TV, movies, comic books and video games. In the run up I was getting five or six pitches a day, some of which (especially the interviews) I would have actually looked at taking advantage were I there. Now that the show is long since past I haven't gotten any.... until tonight. This was for a movie and videogame called, yes, Space Chimps
"We’d love to work with you on any continuing coverage, previews, rounds up, etc. you may have planned coming up; looking at this summer’s big films, seems like sci-fi is going to represent a huge market – X-Files, Wall-e, etc. But what could be more appealing than combining space travel with monkeys?"
Indeed. Man, I could do that.
Hey, anyone familiar with THE CONTAINER STORE
? As in, acceptable for a temp job?
