Hey lovebirds! My apologies if I’ve been a little less responsive than usual these past few days—I wound up having emergency surgery last week and I’m still kinda wonky from that whole ordeal. (As you can tell from the pic below, I am NOT a fan of surprise operations and neither is Grant.) All that said, I can’t begin to tell you how much better it is to not have a regular job when you’re hit with something like this!
So just so you know, I’m not totally ignoring you if you’ve been waiting for some messaging tips or trying to reschedule a call with me or pitching me your dating app or requesting a first-time appointment or trying to sign up for Snappy Hour (which is totally still on with a couple openings left, by the way). I’m just having trouble balancing my laptop on top of my stitches and then, you know, remembering that I have stitches in my lap and squawking in pain while I readjust my precious technology.
Regular Heartographer business will resume soon. In the meantime, I’d extra-appreciate it if you could be a bit more persistent and patient than usual in your attempts to get in touch with me, since everyone in the world seems to be calling while I’m incapable of shuffling to my phone before it goes to voicemail, haha. Consider this good practice for your dating life, and hang in there! [icon-heart]
Girl! Get better soon. And what are doing for Microsoft? Resizing images?? 🙂
@askvirginia Sounds by your tone like you’re inconvenienced and not seriously out. Hope you heal well and fast.
@askvirginia Ack! Glad to hear you’re on the mend though.
@jeffcarlson I put on a good tone; it’s more serious than it sounds but I’m healing well all the same. Fuck our frail human condition though
@WickedGood Thank you!
@askvirginia hope you have an easy recovery!
@jasonpbecker Thanks! Finally being able to wield a laptop is helping, at least mentally. 🙂
@askvirginia Hope you recover soon.
@askvirginia should have gone full Ticci on the laptop.
@askvirginia I’m starting to think you and @gkr are the west coast @princessharold and @gwenderful.
@jasonpbecker I do not comprehend this reference but I bet you can dredge up a funny link!
@askvirginia Federico Viticci, who went all in on iPad when he had to spend extended time in the hospital fighting cancer.
@askvirginia That’s just the worst, Virgina. All my best! (Love the photo though.)
@princessharold @gwenderful Perhaps! Though I think we’re paler than you guys; we’re basically transparent in full sunlight. @gkr is from VA
@jasonpbecker Oh, wow. I tried but this one important medical resource won’t load on iOS at all for me, heh. So I had to switch.
@askvirginia @gwenderful @gkr it’d be hard to get paler than we are.
@Spacekatgal Thanks! I debated whether to post it, but you know what? Fuck surgery. Fuck it. Fucking hit post. 🙂 Sometimes you just gotta.
@princessharold @gwenderful @gkr Quick let’s have a white-off oh wait what do you mean that’s what the past several thousand years have been
@askvirginia @gwenderful @gkr well, it’s actually something I was born to do.
@askvirginia Eeks. Hope you’re on a smooth road to recovery.
@ahockley Thanks, I am—and I dig that new photo!
@askvirginia sending you well wishes and a big FU to surgery (where’s the middle finger emoji?!)
@thoughtbrain I know, right? We need @caseyliss’s help here!
Ha! Resizing images, good one. I’m doing some part time writing for an IT team; they kinda needed someone who could punch up drier language, so I’m basically applying my skills from The Heartographer to a super corporate setting. Never saw that coming, but so far it’s a blast!
@askvirginia Hope your recovery is quick.
@askvirginia Best wishes for a quick recovery!
It does suck. I’m sorry. And I love you guys.
@askvirginia <3 Take time to heal!
Get well soon!!
@askvirginia argh! hope you’re doing ok!
