  1. Past hour
  2. it’s a form of job security. also, he will be seen as a nobody the minute he leaves, loosely paraphrasing ruth reichl in one of her memoirs. so there’s that.
  3. Today
  4. Testing investor patience at the obvious place he hasn't covered yet?
  5. Restaurant reviews are down to no more than two a month. One in December, one so far in February. Just not enough restaurants to review? Or is he starting to wear out after 12 years? Nobody has done the job longer (Claiborne was on the dining section longer, but only nine years as a regular reviewer).
  6. Thank you all so much for the kind and generous words of support and encouragement. My heart goes out to everyone navigating their own medical issues and those of their friends and loved ones. I do feel better finding out this way than after a surprise heart episode in the middle of a busy night of expo or something. I will take the steps needed to change my life as they come to me and suppose my all beef and bacon diet might have run it's course. I have been fortunate that for almost 50 years I had no serious need for doctors and hospitals and trying to overcome my fears. One step at a time.
  7. I like absurdism, but I'm feeling less confident than I was initially that the food will make up for the schtick.
  8. It certainly sounds like it! And you must feel absolutely buried. Sending "hope things improve or at least stabilize" thoughts your way.
  9. MR, I am so sorry to read these. I have no easy balms. Hang in there and know that MFF offers you a forum and group of caring people. Our situation is not at all bleak. All husband's treatments seem to be working as designed with improvements on every test. Side effects have been minimum and one would never know he was having problems to look at him as he continues with all of his normal (absurdly physical) activities. My point to @backyardchef was that moving forward positively with his doctors is the best way to get beyond past transgressions. And to encourage others to listen to their bodies. They feed us subtle information every day that inform us of inconsistencies. Don't ignore it.
  10. Definitely a week from hell. First of all, the full moon is approaching. Full moons and dementia do not play well together. Husband wandered off during the night and a guy brought him home around 3 am night before last. And he wandered again 3 times yesterday. Last night he screamed and yelled all night because he has to get home to Florida. (NOTE: He hates Florida. Has never lived there. No idea where this has come from.) A few weeks ago my baby sister (My rock.) was discovered to have AFIB. Anything with her heart is worrisome because her mitral valve collapsed and had to be repaired when she was just in her late 30s. She had a cardioversion about 3 weeks ago. Had her follow-up last week and they have scheduled her for ablation in May. But wait, there's more! She got shingles this week. My poor, poor sweet sis. Think I'm done yet? Nope! Heard from my former BIL last night. My sweet ex-husband (We remained friends and he stayed close with my family.) passed away in Boston yesterday. Stick a fork in me. I'm done.

    Okay, I read about it. She is still trying to “figure out” what her food is. Currently hamburger and frozen fries. A charge of $1K for a kiss on the cheek invites inappropriate comments from which I will demur. Place bets on this place. Poor old Chumley’s.
  13. I'm sorry to learn this. Put the regrets aside and focus your energy on healing - once the procedure is behind you, you can revisit beating yourself up.
  14. I'm sorry to hear that you and your husband are in the midst of medical crisis. I know how stressful it is. Wishing him a speedy recovery.

    Maybe some variation on Toad?
  16. Think of it this way: you are in much worse shape now than you will be after the procedure. Sending all good thoughts. Mostly, have faith in your doctors. I say this as husband has UCSF oncology, cardiac and stroke teams working on his behalf at the moment. We feel fortunate that there were diagnoses when there were. Ignorance is not bliss.
  17. Yesterday
  18. You gotta think of how great you'll feel after the procedure!!

    nyt says that it was originally supposed to be froggy’s so on that note, it’s already an improvement 🧐
