She's off the ventilator!!! And she's RESPONSIVE! And moving her legs!!! Still in ICU, because they can't get her blood pressure down, but as my mom says, it's a total miracle. The road to recovery will still be a long one, no doubt, but at least, nine days later, she is already so much better than anyone had expected her to be.

Thank you very very much for the sweet comments, the good vibes, the private messages, the thoughts and prayers. It clearly worked! And also, wow, who knew that this blog actually has a full SEVEN SUCKER... I mean... readers!!

Marco: You're my ONLY stalker. And only a pretend one at that! Thank you again for the good wishes and good thoughts. It clearly helped! We're extremely relieved.

delighted to hear the news... keeping my fingers crossed - metaphorically of course because typing would be awfully difficult!

Make that eight whatever's...
Glad things took a turn for the better.

Marco said:

I need to work on my skills... ;-)

Keep us posted though. Honestly glad to hear things are taking a turn for the better. Hope she goes from strength to strength.

Looked at your pic again today, and thought, wow, so hard to imagine that face ever being worried or sad :-)

Aunty: Thank you for the metaphorical finger-crossing, Miss Universe! I hope the typing of your thesis is also coming along swimmingly!

POWDER (PUFF)!! OH MY WORD! I can't believe that you still(?) bother to read this. (Well, you and the seven others.) To think that a year ago, YOU were the one in hospital, giving the rest of us gray hair!!!! How on earth ARE you, Mister?!? I'll e-mail you promptly, now that I have your address again. Even though I take it that you'll be as responsive as you were when I wrote so incessantly on your fan site a year ago! Okay, so in your feeble defense, you WERE practically dead and in a coma (just the way I like my male first world passport holders to be!), but still... Thank you so much for commenting here. You totally made my week!

Marco: Yes, look, not to complain, but you truly are a lousy pretend stalker. (Not that I've had any experience with real ones!) For one, it would help if you were actually in closer proximity. So that you can leave me lavish gifts outside my gate, etc. (Well, since this is SA, it will probably be stolen. But still, it's the thought that counts and all.) A real stalker would probably not admit to actually subjecting himself to the torture of looking at a blurry photograph of my mug. (Which reminds me, need to delete that and put up the gorgeous puppy face instead.) He will just quietly take my unfortunate photograph, copy it and plaster it all over his walls in order to turn his house into a hideous shrine. Yes, I realise, that is way too labour intensive. So never mind then.

I love ya too oh Red One ;-)

make that nine suckers - I'm here, lurking away thinking good thoughts but not commenting...

MARTHA! I can't believe it!!! It's so so good to hear from you! HOW IS THE BABY? And the Missus? And NYC? WHY AREN'T YOU UPDATING YOUR BLOG?!? (Yes, I know... look who's talking!) Thank you for delurking! It's so so so good to hear from another 'old skool blogger' who has been a sucker... I mean... reader since the very beginning.

Marco: Yeah, right. You're still a lousy pretend stalker.

about
is a South African girl living in South Africa. That doesn't sound very original, we know, but you might find it remotely interesting when you learn that she has only recently returned to South Africa for the first time after a nine year, one month and two week (non-stop!) stint in the United States where she accidentally became an outlawed alien (also known, especially in immigration circles, as an 'illegal immigrant.' We prefer the term 'outlawed alien' ourselves). During her reversed exile from her homeland, she kept herself occupied by winning this website (but only after shamelessly bribing the judges) and thus being unleashed on the web where she slowly, leisurely became the World's Laziest Blogger; by being a nanny and by attending sci-fi conventions in search of other aliens. In the US, she also made her sailing debut, her international acting debut, tried and failed to learn the piano, and never learned to cook. She is hopelessly addicted to coffee, dogs (especially Labrador Retrievers), how-to books (with a particular fondness for her copy of the Time/Life A - Z Medical Encyclopedia), and she tends to grossly overuse parentheses (we're not kidding) during her attempts at writing, which you may - if you really have masochistic tendencies - subject yourself to by reading the words to the right of this column. If you REALLY and truly STILL want to know more, you can read her C.V. here.
Or you can stalk her send her some love via e-mail at: redsaid[AT]gmail[DOT]com

The Wish List (Because yes, she really does need more how-to books. Honestly!)
