Can this be Death?

0200 more or less. Just called in sick.

Nature of illness: r/o dying.

Yep. Shuffling off my mortal coil...about to run down the curtain and join the bleeding choir invisible. 

The call-taker at work, not catching the reference, actually asked me to spell "mortal coil" then asked if that was work related. 

Yeah, we only hire the finest cultural philistines at my place. Maybe I shoulda put it in rap form. They'd have all instantly understood that.

I explained that it was a sudden vision problem, as in "I can't see my ass going in today."

And someone really needs to explain to these freaking dogs why this is NOT a good time to start another round of "Wookie Wrestlemania" in my bedroom and on. My. Freaking. Bed. 
I will miss them if they don't stop..

Peace out, y'all. Powering down.

Cue lame public service commercial.

Cue National Anthem.

Insert test pattern here.

    I remember that sequence.
    In Charleston, SC during the 60s and 70s it was at 2300.
    3 channels (2, 4, and 5) plus Public TV that nobody watched anyway...
    And then they "improved" TV by taking it to a 24-hour format.
    Kinda like "improving" a cold by turning it into the creeping green crud.

  2. Yes, there seems to be a deadly infectious African virus in America. It is very vexing to the health care system and the transportation system, et cetera.

    But in 2 years, he should be out of the White House.


    Feel better!

  4. Hang in there. On the upside, you, unlike many, can order a wooden leg so you can be appropriately nailed to a perch.
