A Scarrier Word than Hemorrhagic (Updated)

Posting will remain light to nil for at least the rest of the week.
Reasons are rather graphic and as a courtesy to our readers are below the fold.


In the meantime, here is your Edith Hamilton fix.

Still Busy

Of course even if I had time to spare, I couldn't do anything about the recent release of Katawa Shoujo, as I don't do torrents, and 4-Leaf is not yet offering direct downloads.  However, Brickmuppet Blog, fortuitously,  still retains the services of an EBP* for these situations. He sends us this screen cap from the game.



Not much to go on, but, I'm intrigued.
More on this looming atrocity here.
UPDATE: There is greater detail and inexplicable synchronicity here.
UPDATE: 2 Emi's dialog provides some tangential synchronicity  here.

Better

Mom is home and doing better. She starts therapy tomorrow. It is still quite hectic here between that and school starting.

Other than belatedly remembering to pull my endorsement post out of "draft", posting is light. 
Here is Nodoka Manabe as compensation.


Art by Ikari Manatsu.. Now go buy K-ON!

The Sum of All Fears

Yesterday I was still recovering from the Norwalk / food poisoning or whatever the hell it was.  My digestive tract seemed quite empty. More importantly, I was no longer wretching bile and drinking water did not immediately precipitate further wretching.  I got up and tried to get my act together to get to school and buy my books, but it was a chore just to get to the bathroom. Nevertheless, I got into the shower and got a stark lesson in perspective...

Because at that point things went south, way south...

My mom was going to go see my sister, to oogle at her granddaughter and help out around the house. She went into the bedroom to get something and got lost...
...in her bedroom.
My dad found her and after realizing that she was utterly incoherent he called for me in a voice that could chill fire. I staggered out of the shower, threw on some pants and we got her to the car. He took her to the hospital.
A few hours later he called.
She has had strokes...
plural...

It seems now that she has had a series of mini strokes over the last month or so which she had presumably written off as holiday stress. 

I've talked to her twice since then via phone. The first time she was quite incoherent but the second time, her speech, while slurred, was understandable.

I'm taking care of my grandmother who currently cannot go to the loo unassisted and Dad is with Mom. He stopped by last night  to get some of her things. As one can imagine he is quite despondent.

Last night they moved her to a specialist facility at a Hospital way out in Suffolk and although visiting hours had passed they provided my father a bench to spend the night with his wife...which does not bode well.

This morning there was no word but they were still conducting tests.

That is all I know at this time.

I'm rather beside myself at the moment

Question Found!

For some time experts have known that the answer is 42.
Considerable effort has since been put in finding out what the question is.
Now, due to a unique confluence of events, this problem has been solved, albeit only temporarily.
For the next 366 days the question is "How old is the Brickmuppet?"
Now those experts have this brief window of opportunity to find out what all of this means.


An expert, hard at work on the problem.

Yes, all of history has lead to this year.
I guess those Mayans were on to something.
