It’s been a long time since we’ve talked. I’ve missed our discussions, well, most of them.
So here we are at the new home of Project 611. I listened to all of you and I’ve tried to put together a better, cleaner, easier to navigate site. I hope I accomplished it and I hope you enjoy your time here.
So let me tell you what to expect from me. The first thing is the mainstay of this entire project is this blog. This is where I’ll be posting every week on things I may not be an expert on but I enjoy talking about. The best thing I can talk about is the thing I know the best, me. You’re going to soon be part of my life, as I’ll be posting what it’s like living with incurable cancer. That’s right, I have multiple myeloma, a form of cancer that started in my bones and moved into my blood stream. Thus, it’s in my entire body. But I’m not going to go into a long explanation here, if you want to find out more regarding it just Google multiple myeloma and you’ll get all the information.
So I’m going to try and let you know the truth about a guy living and dying in 3/4 time. I will say it’s a pretty shitty way to live. I basically stay in one room of our house that has been sterilized for my fun and enjoyment. I haven’t been out with the exception of hospitals, labs and doctors offices. If I do go out I must be masked. And that’s just a real freaken joy. People see me coming and it’s like the parting of the sea. They get out of the way like if they get close, they’ll get cancer as well, douches. However, I’ve learned to live with it.
So that’s really what this site is all about. Along with up to date information on medical marijuana, that I’m backing with all my heart. You’ll also hear from my alter ego, MaGoogle as well as Suzzy Chreemcheese with advice on every topic you can imagine. I also plan to have a great online store selling all natural products and other items to help you with your relationship with Mother Nature. I’ll also get into deep breathing and meditation with you. Those three things have helped me enormously, medical marijuana, deep breathing and meditation. Just as a little byline, don’t get into deep breathing and meditation unless you know what you’re doing. I’m shopping around for an Internet station where I can help you with these things. But that will be in the future as this blog is pretty time consuming with all the extras I plan on having.
Well, there you have it, a blog that hopefully will show you what a cancer patient goes through on a day to day basis. So for now I’m going to get on with my day. Hopefully I’ll see you right back here next week.
Wait a minute, I just can’t leave you without saying something about the current election in the U.S.
It’s been a while, several days at least, since anyone has publicly engaged in fat-shaming, chanted “lock her up,” or had their deplorable emails leaked. In our news cycle, that’s tantamount to 400,000 years since anything interesting has happened. This relative slowdown allows us to sit back and be reminded: Damn. These are the people running for President.
It also gives us tie to look at the undercurrents present in this cruel and barbarous—I mean glorious—expression of American Democracy. First, Hillary and Trump supporters are literally the same. I’m sure this comes as a tremendous surprise, but hey, at least irrationality and willful self-delusion are things we can all agree on. And guess what: it’s also demonstrably true that Trump has forced both candidates to speak in simpler terms, which wouldn’t be necessary at all if we just ditched the cornball debates and made the candidates audition instead. Frankly, that’s the most brilliant suggestion I’ve heard all season.
Mood: Enjoy the silence. It’s only temporary.
