I've blogged for 1000 posts and all I got was this lousy gallbladder surgery scar

This post is set to publish as I go in for my surgery tomorrow. Err, today. Whatever. It's a pretty crappy way to celebrate my 1000th post on this blog but somehow it just seems to fit.

Since I have to get up at 5 AM I suppose I should be sleeping right now but I can't. I've got so many important questions going through my head. Questions like "Will I have to take my underwear off for the surgery?" and "Can I keep my gallstones or are they considered medical waste?" and "But what if I want to keep them? Are they really waste if it's my waste and I want them?" and "Why in the hell would I want my gallstones?"

I was planning on doing a sort of best of post for this momentous occasion but maybe this is just as good. No one really reads those things anyway and besides, the first two thirds of this blog is absolute crap anyway. The last third is crap too but now I sometimes post recipes and cool pictures of snowflakes.

Today the realtor who sold us our house sent us a flashlight and a card wishing us a happy new year. No real reason for that story, I'm just wondering if it makes any more sense to you guys than it does to me.

I love you all, thank you for reading and I'll see you on the flip side. And by flip side I mean the side where your gallbladder is removed. Or rather, my gallbladder. Painkillers are fun.

Congrats on your 1000th post AND good luck with the whole gallbladder removal thing.

I just wrote a post about drugs being a good thing.

Good luck. My granny got the video when she had hers removed. It was a long time ago. But that is still a momento.

Good luck, lady! My mom got to keep her stones. She also loved showing off her scar. My mom is a weirdo.

OK, your title alone had me laughing :)If you keep your stones, will you do something with them -- like a craft project? Or just keep them on a shelf as a conversation piece? Just wondering!

I hope all goes well. I enjoy your blog and congrats on 1000 posts...that's amazing!

I don't think they offered to let me keep my stones last year, but maybe if you ask they will! I hope everything went well for you!

Good luck! Congrats on your 1,000th post, and no your blog isn't crap. I love the personality and humor in your writing, even if it's just day to day stuff -- which is what life is anyway, right?
