    My gall bladder is smokin hot. Several people have told me. A couple of those several were fairly trustworthy and good judges of smokin' hot organs, too.

    You're in a dream but in the right thread, too. They're not mutually exclusive. Disorientation can be your natural state. It's mine much of the time. Check your gall bladder for it's orientation, then align your whole consciousness the same way and you'll be fine.

    I just checked and it looks like my gall bladder is slightly misaligned with my consciousness (I mean it's close but it's kinda hard to see around my id sometimes). I wonder if that's why I think about cider more than most other people apparently do?

    Your cider obsession I think may have a geographic component that is only partially related to the psycho-physico alignments of your super-ego and various bladders. Depends. What dialect does your gall bladder speak?


    Crap. Actual work alert. Don't they know I'm busy being ridiculously nerdy?!?!?

    You've got a lot of damn gall to say that. It's a little known fact that your appendix works like a psychic compass and prevents disorientation. Tonsils have to take over that function after an appendectomy. If you've had both removed, you're just SOL in the orientation department.

    In fact the ultrasound tech told me my insides were beautiful. Then they ripped out my gall bladder. Beauty is fleeting.

    detailed descriptions of surgical procedures

    Has anyone else ever had their guts slashed open and innards ripped out?

    Jeez. I always heard that "beauty's only skin deep." And that "it's what's inside you that counts." Now I'm hearing that beauty goes right down into your innards . . . and that they can just yank them out! I've got to a new orientation on all this.

    This all reminds me of the little tune I sing with my little 8 yo son at bedtime that he splits his side laughing at:

    The Worm Song

    Nobody likes me
    everybody hates me
    I think I'll go eat worms
    Fat ones, skinny ones
    even itty bitty ones
    I think I'll go eat worms
    Bite their heads off
    suck their guts out
    throw the skins away
    cuz
    Nobody likes me
    Everybody hates me
    I think I'll go eat worms

    Appendix, tonsils, and gallbladder are all considered useless and with the exception of wisdom teeth, I intend on keeping all my vestigial parts in the event of a rapid de-evolutionary event. You never know how you'll need to adapt.

    edit: FYIW this is post 777; i should have notated post 666.

    It just tickled my funnybone the way dandy described her cholecystectomy ("they ripped out my gall bladder"). Makes it sound like the tools involved little more than a rusty machete, pair of rubber gloves, and a hearty yank

    EDIT: for some reason I just got the uncomfortable feeling mine was the only funnybone that got tickled by that.

    I did actually leave my negative state for a little while thanks to your ripped out gall bladder.

    The facilities people traded out my old desk and credenza for new furniture this morning---well, the furniture is new to me. The new desk and credenza are not a perfect match. The Man comes into my office this afternoon and says, "That's not the desk you were supposed to get. It should match the credenza. I'm gonna go look for it."

    You are obviously an important man. I don't merit a credenza. I have a desk and a table. The table drawer has a missing knob. I think a previous occupant of the desk must've been a cowboy. The legs of the desk look like they were repeatedly raked with Mexican silver dollar spurs.

    So your desk oozes awesomeness? Any bullet holes, maybe whip marks or a secret lever?

    It's probably advisable. I'm not sure about myself sometimes. I'm a ticking time bomb of hugs, bad jokes, big hair and fantasies that have their roots in my mid-seventies TV watching....
