Movie Song of the Week: "Space Oddity"

In light of recent events, this song seems eerily appropriate.

Labels: , , , , ,

I'm Back!

But for how long, only time can tell.

I'm still relying on the kindness of family for my Internet access -- though I suspect I might have been better off when I was relying on the kindness of strangers.

On the bright side, I'm still working and I actually managed to go in and out of the hospital in record time this year. Of course, it might have been better if I had managed to stay out but I guess you can't have everything.

Anyway, I hope all my readers are well.
