Dave!This has been the strangest weekend ever.

Sure the agonizing torture of kidney stones is something new, and entailed my very first visit to the Emergency Room, but the bigger picture is that I haven't done anything all weekend. It seems all I can manage to do is to take drugs and sleep. The good news is that I think my body must be getting accustomed to the medication, because I've been able to start eating again in small amounts. I can only hope that this means I'll be able to go to work tomorrow, because all this "nothing" is killing me. If this keeps up, I'm pretty sure I am going to go insane.

Sigh. And I had such big plans. Primary of which was to get the BloggerPeeps site up and running, but I haven't been able to make much progress on that at all...


Oh well. It's not like the world is going to end or anything, but still... it's kind of depressing that three days have been utterly wasted.

I wonder how much longer until I am de-stoned?

One interesting side note is how quickly that spammers act on new entries now-a-days. I had two comments from two different companies spamming with an "all natural kidney stones cure" when I woke up this morning. As if the actual kidney stones aren't enough pain, I've got dumbass spammers wailing on me too. Why is there no death penalty for these idiots yet?

Bleh. Time for another pill and my sixth nap of the day. Being sick sucks ass! Now I know why I do it so rarely.

  1. Hey!

    Just headed over to see how you were. Glad to see you’re better(?) – at least you got some rest!

  2. amanda says:

    Kidney stones aren’t “nothing.” Take it easy and rest up for tomorrow.

  3. Rob says:

    spammers should be hung from there necks until there kidneys turn to stone.

  4. Ms Chatty says:

    I feel for ya I really do… I had way too many of those 2 years ago.
    Did they atleast give you good pills? I got Lortab 😀

  5. adena says:

    How on earth is that your VERY first visit to the emergency room??

    Did your parents cover you in bubblewrap as a kid??

  6. Jeff says:

    Hurry and get better so you can finish your Peeps. Your teaser looks awesome!

    Oh, did that sound selfish? Sorry, but you gotta admit – it IS cool!

  7. Bitter Bitch says:

    can’t they zap them with that lazer stone breaker upper thingy? they did that for one of my friends and it worked.

    having alien babies suck. i know, i had one about a month or so ago.

  8. Used Hack says:

    Man, I feel for you.

    I got nothin’ else.

  9. Kristy says:

    Spammers? Or were they really kidney stone fairies, trying to actually help you through this difficult time in your life?

    I’m sure you’re right–they were spammers. Spam is a bit like pornography, right? Even if you can’t define it, you know it when you see it.

    Sorry for your troubles.

  10. Mooselet says:

    Are you not de-stoned yet??? That blows. You might consider going back and tell them to try something new – you shouldn’t have to do this forever.

    You still managed better posts sick than a lot of bloggers do healthy!

  11. Belinda says:

    Geez, I wasted the whole weekend and wasn’t EVEN sick. Not even a little. Thanks for the kick in the ovaries, Dave. But I love you, and want you to be all better soon and not go crazy from the stirlessness.

  12. Belinda says:

    And if you’re REALLY bored, give all the BloggerPeeps their very own, personalized, Davetoon. Or their own monkey. Whatever.

  13. katelyn says:

    i hope you feel better soon.

  14. Kevin says:

    I would like to dedicate the Cranberries’ song “Linger” to your kidney stone that just doesn’t seem to want to come out. Why am I imagining that your little stone will have the voice of Bruce Willis screaming “put me back! put me back!” when it’s finally passed?

  15. karla says:

    the ego stroking you are giving me is worth me offering to pass your kidney stones for you.

    ‘cept I can’t. But, Dave, for you? I would. As long as you gave me the drugs as well…
