Dept. of Long Time, No Post

Again, I'm Trying Again

Perhaps I should stop using Twitter; my attention span has melted like snow, and my ability to think cogent, long-form thoughts has melted along with it.  Three times I've tried to write a post worth someone's time; three times I've failed. And we're not talking about the multiple days that I just didn't try to begin with, or the multiple days I didn't read my f'list, or, reading, did not comment.

Ah, me. As we are wont to say in our house about whinging too damned much: Grumble, grumble, grumble, whale meat again.

(Hey, it's a thing. A kaffyr and BB and FB thing. ... Ahem ... Perhaps one had to be there?)

In new TMI news, I went through roughly a week of intermittent nausea that became absolutely awful on Saturday. One doctor's visit later, I need to get a gallbladder scan, and I've been told to lose a little weight, cut the caffeine and cut my stress. Cut my caffeine? Eurgh. I already don't drink coffee much anymore. Cut my weight? Yeah, probably.

Cut my stress?


Oops. Thinking out loud again.

Heh, definitely related! (Somewhere, a few millennia ago or something. ;-p)

I hope the heat isn't too awful (or at least, many blessing on the magic Air Conditioning). :-/

You had a relative held captive in Canada? My eyes are wide! By who was he held captive? This is fascinating!

He was a mumble-times great uncle, and he was captured by the Nuu-chah-nulth, having the misfortune to be on board the next ship to arrive after the Nuu-chah-nulth had got fed up with white traders behaving badly and they attacked and massacred everyone on board but spared my relative because he was a ship's smith and they wanted his skills. (They also spared the sailmaker). This is him. I believe I'm descended from his elder brother but it's being difficult to prove or disprove absolutely. However, I have lots of things to indicate that they have the same father and the only actual thing I have against is that I'm sceptical of ever being related to someone you can look up on Wikipedia.

But anyway, his journal was a lot about working as a slave, eating whale blubber and despairing of ever being rescued.

I just read the entry beyond your link (goodness, that sounds like a book title, doesn't it?) I was right; it was fascinating.
