The Merits of Clothes-ectomy Therapy for Cancerous Wardrobes–Positive Initial Results, in Cases With a Two Foot Resection Margin.


June 28, 2011 by rebelwithalabelmaker

Oops.  I'm sorry.  I forgot to say how Father's Day went, for those of you who were waiting on the edge of their seats to see if the "What do you get for someone who has everything?  Emptiness" theme went well.  A big thanks to my cousin (Not Douglas, who doesn't actually read this blog despite my post declaring that he is 100% of my readership).  No, bit thanks to other cousin Scoozle (not her real name, of course) for reminding me that I do in fact have a blog and there is more to life than checking the strawberries in the back yard every ten minutes to see if they are ripe yet.

Gary loved the empty closet.  He moved his clothes over right away.  It took 90 seconds.  Turns out, he only wears one or two dozen of the plethora of outfits that were clogging the thing up.  So, if any of you out there in the city wear a men's medium, come on over.

Also, when cleaning out the closet, I realized that there was a ton of mouse fuzz in there from the last infestation.  A soft little friendly looking grey haze covered the floor at the back.  Since Gary is allergic to mice, the haze did not look friendly to him.  I had scrubbed the main areas and bedrooms thoroughly but didn't think to do the closets.  Now that his clothes are no longer being stored above a pool of mouse dander, he's breathing better, too.  (Really, if you want some mouse danderey men's dress clothes, we are one stop shopping…  I should have gone into sales).

As a side note, the traffic on the blog (yes, I'm not yet too mature to look at my stats as well as where they're coming from) skyrocketed with people who viewed the "What does Dad need?".  A lot of people, I though, are really looking for ways to be thoughtful and kind on Father's Day.  I should do more topical posts.

Turns out, that wasn't it at all.  As I have said before, most of my blog travel comes from people looking at the Martha Stewart and Porn article (and being sorely disappointed, I might add.  If you haven't read it, you should–it will explain to you why reading my blog makes you feel so good about your house).  Well, when I added the post "What does Dad need?" I very unintentionally created a kind of "synergy" on the search engines.  And disappointed a lot of people–I feel a little bad.

Perhaps I should start using titles that reflect the actual content of my posts.  This seems very constraining and boring to me.  

The last thing Gary published (in a surgery journal) was titled "Predicting local recurrence following breast-conserving therapy for early stage breast cancer: the significance of a narrow (≤ 2 mm) surgical resection margin."  I made such fun of him for his non-creative and practical title.  I am now seeing the light and will endeavour to create research-journal style titles for all my posts from now until forever or until I get distracted and do something else.

    made me laugh this morning Liz…you always have!
    and love the “emptiness” theme – deep :)! Glad Gary liked it.
    have a fabulous day…I wanna make a date to swing on your trapeze soon! I’d bed a ‘swinging’ subject would crank those search engines.
