Hey Smarties! Just a quick note, I'm off early in the morning to Halle an der Salle:

I just got back from an unexpected visit to the hospital- a detached retina, lots of fun. My right eye has been drained of aqueous humerus, so it focusses at about an eighth of an inch from the lens, giving me a built-in microscope. It will recover, and I will report in next week. I just wanted to say that I had a lot of time to think about things in the hospital, and one thing I thought about was how important friendships are, including the friendships I have here with you fine people. So thanks, and have a good Fertility Goddess celebration. More later.

cheers, zilch/Scott

So, how shit-faced were you when you detached thy retina?

Rest up and take it easy, Zilch. I am pretty sure at least most of us are here for you. ;)

Thanks, everyone. Just got back and I'm doing pretty well. My built-in microscope is slowly going away, though.
