I told you so

Well, word is out. Dumbledore is gay. In case you've forgotten, you heard it here first. That's right, I called it. Now pay up, suckas. Actually, I didn't bet anyone, but if you'd like to lose retroactively and send me some cash, I'd be ok with that. If you've got the time and would like to know where the "gay-ness" shows up in the books, the LA Times will tell you all about it.

Well, I've been spending a lot of my internet time on Facebook. What little free time I have, that is. I've now discovered zombie hugs, tattoos and quizes about my sex life. Hoo, boy, and if you think I don't have a lot of time for the internet...Anyhoo. Now, I know I'm a grownup and all, but seriously, my niece and nephew and their respective sig others are all teaching this year in South Korea and you know the kids today, they're all on Facebook. Even my teenager, who just discovered that I'm on it, much to her mortification. Want your kid to spend less time on teh interwebs, join Facebook. It's much less cooler when your MOM uses it. Tee Hee.

This week, I've actually had a little time to peruse the weekly Grand Rounds. My friend Susan over at Improbable Optimisms has the first spot with a great read on hope. Check it out.

And under the "Better late, if ever" category: The latest Change of Shift over at Kim's.
Meanwhile, Love Monkey and I spent a night at Atlantic City this week. With teh baby, of course. All paid for by his poker habit. Gotta love the comps. It was nice, we spent some time at the beach, but it's no Vegas. In fact, it's a lot like Keansburg with shiny skyscrapers. Ah well. And could someone please tell me why you can't get a decent, cheap meal in A.C.? I mean, you can mortgage your house and go to Ruth's Chris Steak House, but want breakfast for less than $12? Forget it. In Vegas you can get a steak for $1.99, but in AC, 2 eggs, toast and some freezer burned sausages will set you back 8 bucks. Other than the eating, though, we had a good time.
In organ donation news (oh, yeah, this blog is about organ donation), Scientists in the UK are doing studies on giving CO2 after transplant surgery to dilate vessels and improve blood flow to the organs. Now, the funny thing is, the picture in this article is the SAME picture the BBC uses for EVERY organ donation article. I'm thinking, if you're the BBC, you could spare a photographer once in a while to go and get a new shot of something else related to organ donation. Or maybe the Brits are just very frugal. Anyway, I'm off to work, where there's no internet. Very sad.

Did you really think he was gay back then? I had no idea! I must go back and re-read them all to "get it".

I'm rather proud that, much like Star Trek, I've never read a single Harry Potter book, nor watched one of the movies. However, I did have a copy of World Without End in my hands within 2 days of its release, and finished it in two more days. Ken Follett is the man

A correction to your post, though...the Brits are working with CO, not CO2. CO2, of course, if what we exhale. CO is what your car exhales.

Once again, PJ, you are the donorcycle fact checker. Remind me to send you a copy of the manuscript before I publish.
