Or, in Westron, the common speech of my people:

"Ellid is home from the hospital."

I'm on a low to no fat diet for the next few days, can gradually start reintroducing fat later in the week, and hope to be back at work on Monday, June 8th or thereabouts.  Thanks to everyone, especially Louisev and Xaxnar, who thanks to a mix-up I was too woozy to notice (thank you, medical tests and morphine and bloodwork and MRI's and clear liquid diets and....), posted not one but TWO wonderful diaries for your dining and dancing pleasure last night.  

So right now I'm sitting in front of my computer, being observed by the Triple Felinoid, wearing my Captain American t-shirt (softest one I own) and black sweats, preparing to tuck into what looks like a really nice fruit salad for a late lunch.  After that I'm going to watch a movie, check the news, and go to bed early.  

Between the VRA (HULK SMASH), DOMA (HULK DOES HAPPY DANCE), Prop 8 (HULK TELLS FRIENDS TO STOP FUTZING AROUND AND GET MARRIED), and this, it's been what might be politely called "one hell of a week" at the Last Homely Shack.  Kudos to the doctors and staff at Baystate Medical Center in Springfield (especially the nurses, who were uniformly marvelous), my friends Tally, Beata, and Beata's husband Tom for all their help, Roomie for holding the fort, and the Triple Felinoid for existing.

Love you all.  Happy Sunday!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
