I posted about it (briefly) in Confession, but here it is. I have breast cancer. I'm going into treatment for it, and part of that treatment is joining a support group. I went to the support group for the first time yesterday. There is a lady in the group whose cancer has spread throughout her body. She doesn't have long to live.
Happy birthday to Stephen Mack, FriendFeed's most proficient, and accurate, liker. He is loved by all, admired by many, and his works are enjoyed by all those who come in touch with them. This year, for his birthday, I am told FriendFeed has chipped in to buy him a screensaver! It will come on a floppy disk in the mail.
My very good friend is in the middle of the lockdown in Watertown with her husband and 2yo. Last I heard the helicopters seemed to have zeroed in about a half mile from her house. I have knots in my stomach. :(
ALL! IMPORTANT! If you see sites that are scamming or otherwise taking advantage of the Boston Marathon Explosions, please forward to me at email@example.com. Our company, Cyveillance, loves to take down scum like that and will go after any sites (including social media), emails, phone numbers, etc. we can.
Results! http://www.wizardresults.com.au/Splits... I was 3rd last out on the course yesterday (it was a wave start format so people took longer but started earlier). I came 1092 out of 1096 competitors. Last in my age category. 2nd last in the males. Guess who doesn't care? My wife and my daughter... I win :)
If you've got someone who will, even when it seems like everything in the world is crumbling down around you, doesn't try to save it, fix it, sugar coat it, make it seem better than it is, BS you, or the situation, but is just there with you; is there *for* you. That's golden.
