Monday and a new week begins...

Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Monday, October 31, 2011

CRASH - the sound of my last Survivor Pool pick - Thanks a whole bunch New Orleans, looking like you never played a football game together before...

I had a procedure on Friday. Been having them since I was 40 years old. The procedure today is nothing. Anesthesiologist inserts the meds, she says take a deep breath and the next thing I hear is "He looks rested"...I am about to say, "Um no, please do not start, I am awake", when I realize I am back in the recovery area.

For my first one ever, the doctor told me I could watch the TV above my head if I wanted to see what he was doing. Needless to say, I explained to him in just a few words that I was not interested.

The prep is the b**ch...the no eating the day before...the drinking the solution...nope....that is the PITA

Anyway it seems everything is fine with that.

But I also strained my left bicep and pretty much lost the full use of my left arm over the weekend. I am doing some exercises and combining heat and cold and salve.

So, overall a real uneventful weekend.

FRIDAY is BLOGBLAST FOR PEACE - plan your globe, fly your spread the word

Today is Halloween! Unfortunately, it is not going to be as big a day as normal with the occurrences of the weekend and the fact that I am psyched for Music On The Couch this evening.

Two spectacular female voices join me tonight. Sunday wilde is from Northern Ontario Canada and is a barrel-house, blues steaming piano playing singer who can rip it up with the best of them.

Kelly Carvin is a young woman who my son Matt mentioned to me and then, before I could reach out, I heard from her manager asking if I wanted to book her.


Kelly is from New Jersey ad has the soul of someone brought up with 60's rock, soul and blues - yet she is only in her twenties!

Halloween treats for my guests who come sit on The Couch...and maybe a trick or two!

6 Of Your Sparks

  2. I'm quite fond of the miniature Three Muskateers bars.

  3. Unknown Says:
  4. Hope you're feeling better. I just went through surgery on my foot and am recovering even as I type this.

  5. I knew the Saints would follow up their blowout of Indy with a stinker. Seems like almost all NFL teams do this. Once an NFL player decides not to put out too much effort some random week, there isn't much that can be done about it.

    Hope you're feeling okay!


  6. Travis Cody Says:
  7. Well at least that's behind you...oh, wait. If it was that particular procedure, then I say no pun intended.

    Yeah, I guess it is Monday. My wit hasn't come back from the weekend yet.

  8. DrillerAA09 Says:
  9. I've had that "procedure" since I was 50. I am scheduled to have one next year. And yes, the prep is worse than the procedure. Glad every thing came out okay...and yes, pun intended.

  10. Ken Says:
  11. I "loved" the solution, guzzled it right down! NOT!
