Ablated and Avulsed, and Ready for Summer

I went to the vein doctor for the follow-up and bandage removal, and I'm healing just fine if you like big purple bruises. I'm supposed to follow up again in a month.

I had a craving for a Hebrew National hot dog from the Mount Sinai cafeteria a couple of blocks away. They changed the stations around a little since the last time I was there. Also, they now have candy. Also since the last time I was there, I've lost 20 pounds and most of my varicose veins, and my job. But it's not like I've misplaced my job, and it's not even as if somebody else is doing it. The job was done, and now I'm searching for another one to do.

I haven't abandoned this blog; just posting updates to Facebook and figuring out what's next. Also trying to figure out the season finale of House (okay, so they didn't sleep together?)

At the moment, I'm recovering from the second, probably last, leg vein procedure--smaller bandage and I only have to wear it for a week.

Over at Ambiance, which Amba started because she was tired of Ambivablog, they've been blogging about "is blogging over?" No, it's just changing, like everything else. When I was interested in making sense out of politics, I followed political blogs. Now I'm following recession and job-hunting blogs. So either I'm a dilettante, or different blogs spring up at different times to fill different needs, like pop-up stores.

The next thing I'm going to do, both for income and for online presence, is taking shape. So if you're still reading this, thanks, and if you're not, then you're not reading this.
