Well, it seems to be the thing juggling Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr so that’s what I’m about to do.
I guess it’ll be good having another outlet considering Twitter seems to get my sarcasm and craziness, Facebook gets my drunken lonely outbursts and now Tumblr can get the nonsense that is in my head.
Hard to believe it’s almost Christmas again.
This very day a year ago was my last day at work before an unscheduled break of over a month thanks to the worst Christmas present I’ve ever received — A perforated stomach ulcer.
About 1am on Christmas Eve it hit and off to the Royal Melbourne Hospital for an 8 hour wait in the emergency room seeing drunks, druggies and assault victims get seen before me because I wasn’t visually ill. But strangely enough within about 3 hours of being seen by a doctor I was going under the knife. Christmas Day is a blur thanks to the anesthetic and all I remember is the volunteers bringing a little Xmas cheer to us patients. If not for the fact I have to work Xmas Day I would return the favour… and you know what my promise is that when I do have an Xmas Day off I will.
I still carry the nasty physical scar of that day, something that will never go away and unfortunately it’s killed any self confidence I had in my average body… But I guess that’s life hey?!?
For Christmas this year I just ask to be healthy, happy, safe and strong as it’s the first Christmas without Dad and I know it will be tough for Mum and his family but as always I need to be the rock. Should change my middle name from “Ross” to “Rock” as it seems to be my position so often in life.
Anyways, thanks for reading!
Peace out and Merry Christmas or whatever holiday you and celebrating!
