Get well soon, Splintered

Apologies for the recent inactivity on this fine blog. Splintered Sunrise currently lies not only splintered, but shredded, scooped-out and stitched due to a leedle problemette with a troublesome appendix, although he says his foreword and bibliography are fine. 

More importantly, he’s been denied alcohol and festive stuffing rights – the cruel bastids! 

He is working hard on getting better, and basking on a tropical beach … in his mind! 

Normal service will resume shortly. In the meantime, here is some music. (You’ll have to use the technology in your head.) 

And Friends of Splinty may drop by to fill in …

    Hey Splintered, get well soon comrade.

    Anyway, who needs an appendix..they are a pesky ickle thing that serve very little purpose.

    Hope you have been watching the fine Xmas telly though that probably has made you feel worse……..

    Watch a DVD.

    Unfortunately the UK is a year behind the US for movies. I saw your next year movies already. See Atonement. Rent the DVD Little Miss Sunshine.

    Get well soon, red greetings!

    Get well soon comrade. Look at it as an opportunity to get started on Capital …

    It’s not as messy or as hard as some may think.

    Get well soon, Splinty. Try to think of it as a tiny Orange Lodge festering within – you’re better off now it’s gone.

    Oh, but please save it for me – there’s nothing like inflamed appendix with Tabasco.

    And thanks to Madam Miaow for the delightful portrait.

    Sorry to hear you are unwell. You’re doing a grand job.

    Be careful about what you eat. A vegetarian diet is best – even if you eat meat.

    WBS: “Is that what you look like? Hmmm…”

    Yeah, it’s a pretty good likeness of the Splintered One.

    The recent emphasis on Galloway/RESPECT is dull, but this is a fantastic blog. Get well soon, SS!

    Also, when you come back, some of us would love a post about Grainne Seoige. Just sayin’ and all. Heal up.

    Really Louise?

    Full head of hair and beard?

    Kudos comrade… and any chance of a piece about the LWR doc I emailed you about?

    take it easy, splintered. I know from personal experience what a pain in the arse (!) a burst appendix can be. You have my sympathies.
