Okay. So, I get this email over the weekend:
TO: Mr. Mitchell
FROM: The Secret Committee to Decide Who Gets Super-Powers (SCDWGSP)
Regarding your request to receive super-powers as a result of your radiation treatments for melanoma, we have met and considered your request and regret to inform you that we must decline to honor it.
Upon review of your circumstances, we find that, melanoma aside, you seem to be a pretty awesome kind of dude and have an exceptional life already. You have a good home, an incredible partner, and two wonderful kitties. You like your job and have hobbies that keep you busy and fulfilled. Honestly, from our perspective, you really have no need for additional superlatives. It would be like gilding the lily.
While we are sorry to not grant your request, we do wish you the best with your treatments.
Seriously, I'll have the first treatment in a few hours. I'll let you know how it goes.
Pretty dull last week. I'm finally starting to get around much, much better. Except for the swelling and the scars, it's almost like it was pre-surgery. We got wintery cold and snow over the last few days. I kind of spent the whole weekend inside, working on stuff. I have so much around here to catch up on!
By the way, this is post 900! I guess I should really wax rhapsodic about this grand accomplishment, but I don't really feel like it. I think I'll save that for either post 1000 or for my tenth anniversary later this year.
