The Vacation, Bookended By Hell

So, last Sunday I packed the family off for our annual week in Montauk.  We started out by hitting my sister's house to say farewell to my niece who is headed off  to college.  While we were there a storm of biblical proportions moved into the area.  It poured for hours.  So, we decided to ride it out a bit.  Figured we'd hang at my sister's until it let up a bit.  Around 11 the insanity lightened up to a downpour and we set out for the next stop, my parents' house, where we'd crash for the night before making the trek to Montauk.

About 20 minutes into the drive, the ridiculous rain resumed and my wipers apparently couldn't keep up with the rain.  A blade came loose, the other blade overlapped with it and suddenly my wiper blades were bent and useless.

So, I called BMW roadside assistance and my wife called AAA.  Since we were on a highway, we had to be towed.

3d Porn? The Next Rocky Horror?

That's right, three dimensional porn is heading your way and not just for the stupid fucks who purchased a tv for the home either.  No, right now a Chinese dude is directing a 3D porn flick for Imax.

Giant motherfucking pop off the screen porn. 

And I'm horrified by it.

Random Musings

My thumb is slowly mending.  I miss being able to use my cell phone with both hands and I am still suffering the humiliation of needing some assistance when buttoning my shirts and pants but all should be restored in another 3 weeks when the pin comes out, the splint comes off and I can get back to hitchhiking left.  In the meantime, the day's been an odd one.

Surgery And The Loss Of The Thumb

Friday was surgery day.  It went well.  Fast, painless, no big deal.  I left the hospital with a dead arm.  Literally.  It was hanging there, useless, swinging in a sling.  No feeling at all.  The surgeon told me it would regain feeling in about 12 hours and it would feel like a bad paper cut.

He was right.  Sort of.
