New Look, New Location

I finally moved my blog over from a WordPress-hosted site (using tedsblog.wordpress.com) back to a non-hosted site. That means I’ve got more freedom to:

a.) break stuff royally with no way to recover
b.) tweak stuff to my heart’s content which will probably lead back to option a.

So, I had an operation two weeks ago yesterday on my, uh, boy bits and things are feeling better. Mostly.

I won’t go into much detail as, well, I don’t want to, but things are working out OK for the most part.

When I went in for the surgery, the first thing I noticed was that the radio (not a CD player or anything) was playing Queen’s “Another One Bites the Dust” which was, honestly, a bit on the nose if you ask me. When I mentioned that to the doctor he said that the song plays around the same time every day and that the irony wasn’t lost on him either.

The surgery only took about 20 minutes and the worst part was when he injected the vas deferentia with the lidocaine. There was definitely, as the doc stated, a “pinch and a burn” when he gave me the shots on each side of the “area.” Once the stuff set in though, there wasn’t really any pain but I could definitely feel what he was doing. The burning flesh smell was a bit distracting though.

I was taken home by my buddy Caley and spent the next five and a half days recuperating in our bedroom with the TV, my XBox 360 and a bunch of books and DVDs. The swelling was pretty severe and a sock filled with a zip-top bag with frozen peas in it was a very close friend to me for that time.

Forward to two-weeks-and-a-day after the event and I’m still pretty sore but feeling better. The stitches have dissolved and/or fallen out but I still feel like I got kicked in the junk.
