A Good Day

No cancer.

Hashimoto's thyroiditus. And no, it was not the result of a ninja attack; it’s the guy’s name who discovered it.

The reason the doc was wondering is because this disorder (which is some sort of autoimmune thing) is usually accompanied by hypothyroidism (not enough go juice), or sometimes hyperthyroidism (too much of a good thing).
Additionally, there are usually antibodies present that can easily be tested for with a blood test.

Curiously, I had none of these factors.
That's why there was the uncertainty of it all.
So I’m an odd duck, surprise surprise.

With only half my thyroid gone, and normal blood levels of the right stuff, that means no drugs for me. Yay!

6 month checkup will be in order – standard stuff.

Other good stuff:

10,000 rounds of target (or SHTF wampum, depending) ammo on the doorstep.

And finally, I am no longer a surge victim of Amazon!
I ordered the Irrational Atheist on January 19th. It's about danged time.

A good day for Vox Day.

In honor of Vox and his new book, I have set up my luxurious loaded libertarian lounge chair.

Note the heavy armament, stereophonic-Day tomes, as well as the fruity beverage sans Vox-appropriate ornamentation.
(Sorry Vox, men aren't allowed to buy little drink-umbrella's in Ohio - it's a state law.)

Awwww...and look - you can even see the tips of the hollow-points in the revolver's cylinder on the right. That's so cute!

Hey, mom! I have a book for you!!

For the rest of you, you can learn much about the book (discussions and reviews pro and con, atheist, Christian, and other) here:

The Irrational Atheist
Atheism delenda est

You can order the hardcover book here:
The Irrational Atheist: Dissecting the Unholy Trinity of Dawkins, Harris, and Hitchens.
And how cool is this? Download it for a fee, or free, legally in PDF, DOC, PDB, and/or LIT formats-
Atheism delenda est, indeed...

And thanks for all your prayers.
Y'all come back now, ya hear?
