Trim done

I left on two people who I think read my LJ, but never post (although hard to say as they haven't unless they are an invisible guest in the last month).  If I cut you and you do read (but I can state without a doubt that you haven't posted in a year), please pop me a message on one of my general posts.  I'm just trimming down people who are never on this.  I'm down to 56 people of whom I'm willing to bet that 45 never even read my LJ (Just basing on the fact that I have about a dozen who read regularly).  Oddly enough, people who I thought would read more, do not (of course I'm not certain because I don't know how many people have their settings changed to invisible guest). 

So that's my trimming of the LJ.

Trimming LJ again

I'm trimming everyone that hasn't friended me back (no biggie there) and trimming anyone who hasn't made a post in 2010.  If you haven't posted this year but you do read, I'll keep you on if you respond to this post.  Otherwise, don't worry about it.

Deleting people

I said Friday, but I'm going to do it today.  I'm posting this as an open post, so if I deleted you and you do read my LJ just post a comment to let me know to add you back.  I'm getting rid of people who never post or read.

A note of thanks to everyone.

Dear friends and family,

I want to thank everyone for all their love,prayers, good wishes, candle lighting, and good thoughts. The love and prayers etc have really helped me heal. I am doing well except for some breathing issues. Prayers for my lung strength are appreciated. My walking time could be as long as six months in the future, but my Doctors think it will be less. All of the workers at University Hospital are wonderful if you ever have to go to a Hospital, they are great people.

This photo was taken by Kelly Holman the EEG tech.

So I hope you find it as funny as I did. She said that most people look like Frankenstein. David's response was Bride of Frankenstein which I guess makes him Frankenstein.

I have to do exercises with my legs and with a lung exerciser I call the puffer. You blow air into it to measure lung capacity and strength. You are supposed to get it up to 2000mL and I am onl up to 750mL. So, a bit to go yet, but I am working hard at it.

I am having some trouble eating because of the Lung issues, so prayers from any sort of denomination and good thoughts are appreciated.   I have always thought of myself as ecumenical, but I have decided to be a Catholic because my family. I want to dedicate myself to being closer to my entire family, immediate, extended, and all my friends that are part of my social family. I also want to extend thanks to all of those that have prayed for me even thouh they may not know me.

BK, the Cuocos, the nurse and eveyone who stopped and helped Al and I at the accident. You showed courage and great faith in humanity, and I hope that I can pay that back in the future.

I know that the hand of God was with me that Thursday because Al and I could easily have died. I am going to rededicate myself to my spiritual growth.

More later when David gets the laptop to me and the wireless working.

Thoughts and Prayers to California

I'd heard about the fires going on, but until I read some of the statistics today it didn't quite sink in.  I want to send my thoughts and prayers to people in Southern California that some how the fires are put out and more people don't lose their lives or homes.

Daily update

Nothing exciting here.  We won't be going to Houston this weekend after all.  We thought we would avoid the hurricane for one and for another we'll be seeing Hunter this weekend (Yes, I miss my puppy dog). 

Other than that, I'm reading Flash Forward by Robert Sawyer who is Canadian.  He is a wonderful writer although occasionally he'll say something that throws me for a loop and reminds me that there are indeed differences between Americans and Canadians (not that that's bad), but it is subtle.  If you like good speculative fiction of the SF variety, you should definitely read him.  I have enjoyed every book of his thus far.  This particular book is about a physics experiment gone awry.  Somehow the attempt to create a boson particle (don't ask me; I think I need to take some more science classes or read some college textbooks on physics) causes the consciousness of every person (and apparently apes as well) to go forward in time 21 years for 2 minutes.  The only people who don't go forward for that time are those who are dead.  The book deals with the philosophy of how the lives of the main characters and people as a whole (through news articles and such) change because of the glimpse of their future self. 

It is an excellent read thus far, I should finish it today.  If you want to think, give it a try.

Other than that, I'm doing my best to type while Alastair does his best to fiddle with the computer.

I walked with David again yesterday, but today I will probably get a break since he's going to Austin, which is okay as my hip hurts. 

Oh, and I'm officially down to my pre-Alastair weight.  It has only taken me almost 17 months to do it, but I have.  I think the proportions are different though.  I still need to work on my stomach, and I think I don't want to waste money on a gym. 

I also wrote some yesterday, so that's three goals that I worked on yesterday.

I also sent a letter to a friend of mine who has an entertainment company that has just started publishing books to get more details on it.  We'll see how that turns out. 

Star Wars Saga edition RPG review

Yesterday, I got my package that had Star Wars Saga edition RPG and A Few Demons More by Kim Harrison.  I spent half the day transferring my character to the new system, but I didn't like it, so I'll be playing the last bit of this game in the old system.  It is pretty hard to translate a 17th level character from one system to another.  I think it would be easier to just start in the new system.  Star Wars RPG reviewCollapse )

For those not reading the cut, I liked the game and if you like Star Wars and roleplaying you should get it.
