    THERE'S A SEQUEL. A FUCKING SEQUEL.
    "It turned out that the ghost was just Mr. Finley, who ran the amusement park. The spooky part is that, as soon as the ghost appeared, the teenagers' dog began to speak! And it spoke in a tortured parody of human speech: 'relp me, Raggy,' it would say. 'I am an abomination and rould re rilled. Rill re, Raggy.'"

    They said I should look into taking off the bandage a couple of days after surgery. Of course I knew there was a fucking scar waiting for me. Six days later, found it had come off in my sleep. Yep, that really is a scar from around the middle of my ear to the top of my head. Perhaps if I continue losing weight it won't look too bad when my fat fucking head starts growing hair again!

    For the time being I'm cosplaying as Frankenstein's monster!

    Jim: "How do you know?"
    Gene: "I don't!"
    Jim: "I knew it."
    Gene: "That's okay. There's a first time for everything!"

    It's been around eight days since my operation and I've been home for close to four days now.

    It's been better than I expected. I'm starting to getting used to my changes... changes that for the most part I can't complain about.

    It's funny. I find that it's a common belief amongst Christians in the United States and the United Kingdom that all brain surgery is a lobotomy, and that when I signed my surgery consent form, I must have been signing my life away. On the contrary, that old-fashioned way of thinking is certainly outdated, and science has come such a long way over the past several decades. Unlike lobotomy which targets the frontal lobe to correct personality defects, there are many other kinds of brain surgeries for different brain parts for entirely different reasons.

    After such a major surgery I do need rest, but I'm otherwise doing pretty good. I'm glad everyone seems to be doing great here.

    What? Where the hell did you hear this from? I've been going to church for 25 years and I've never met someone who thinks this or is against brain surgery, is this from a satire Twitter account or something that makes Chemtrail memes? Even in the backwater Baptist churches i've been to in Texas and Kansas, people aren't against or confused by modern medicine...this sounds like an article from the latest issue of Fedora Tipper magazine, sponsored by Reddit.

    Is there actually a group of people who thinks distinct surgical procedures are all the same procedure? That being said, I've had surgery 3 or 4 times and the one time when the guy gave me the consent form he literally said to me "this covers us in case you die". I was 17 so I don't even know why he gave me the form and not my parents?? The whole thing seems sketchy, looking back on it. I was in the hospital for 3 days or so afterward and the jello they have there was top-notch. A week after I checked out I got a review form in the mail where I could offer feedback/comments. I had this nurse-in-training I really liked named Karen, so I wrote "Nurse Karen is a fox, give her a raise."
