Random and inconsistent snippets from an unstructured mind. My truth may not be your truth. A fact is a fact only by standing on it.
It can't fall down, there is nothing holding it up...
Except some sort of capitalist exploitation. The writer is a 3rd generation Indigenous Australian. Not, i might add, Aboriginal - two different concepts.

Just because i can.

Hi Rob, just a note while i have the satellite turned on. My little
body has been taking a bit of 'damage' recently, and probably will
over the next couple of months. HOWEVER - nothing very serious. Had just managed to repair self after
the tumble off the horse when i receive notification that am 'booked in'
for the inguinal hernia repair that had been waiting roughly 12 months
for. Not that the hernia ever really bothered
me (except when i coughed or sneezed .. heh). Knew that was booked in
on Friday 25th Jan (with o/night stay), but not the time. Had arranged with Larry to drive me into Lithgow and pick me up the
following day - but had no idea what time i was supposed to arrive until
7pm the Thursday night - phone call "we want you here at 7 AM" !!!.
Bloody 'ell. Managed to contact Larry, but he couldn't
make it, so drove self in. Op apparently went well - was on the table
at about 7.30am ... woke up in the ward at about 9am. Felt a bit woozy,
had a squizz, saw a tinsy little 3 inch bandage; and wondered whether
the nurses had fun fiddling with my wiggly bit
when they shaved me (bugga, untouched by female - or other - hand, since
2009. Wish i'd been awake fer that ... heh. Not a lot of pain, so spent the rest of Friday being extremely bored -
even though there were 2 other blokes in the 4 bed ward. Could get out
of bed by about midday, but couldn't travel very far as was attached to
this blasted pole and saline drip - until i
figured out how to disconnect it from the wall plug without setting off
the 'alarm'. Wandered around a bit then found a Readers Digest
condensed in the waiting room, so dozed and read for the rest of the
day. Almost began to enjoy it .. lots of nice young
females wandering about, meals (which weren't that bad) delivered to the
bed - except that the bed wasn't all that comfy. Was rarin' to go
first thing next morning. Rang Larry at about 9am - yer, i know, wasn't
allowed to drive ... buuut, didn't know what
to do with my car ... soo, while no-one was looking, drove home (with
Larry following along behind in case something went wrong). Five days later i had to turn up at the Dental Clinic to have some teeth
out on Weds 30th. Never rains but it pours (actually! - 150mm on Sunday
27 and Monday 28) .. but no floods up this way. 'Twas most welcome, as
was getting down to quarter tank. Dental
clinic not before time ... have been waiting three years. The plan is to
have a couple out every two weeks or so, then a month wait until i can
get a set of bright shiny 'movie star' ones (well, that's the hope,
anyway). Lovely lady at the Clinic - didn't feel a thing. All done and dusted in
20 minutes. Ached a bit when the anaesthetic wore off later that day,
but didn't need a Panadol. So ALL'S WELL!! Cheers, David
