One of the best parts about the last couple of days is the flood of comments, emails, IMs and phone calls. Not that I didn't already know y'all love me or anything, but that has helped my spirits immensely. However, some folks distinguished themselves in cracking me up. Which on this blog calls for a contest!

Herewith is a harvest of some comment highlights. Usual rules apply, vote for the one you like best. I'll be sending off a mass market paperback of Mainspring Powell's | Amazon thb | Audible ] to the poll winner, personalized with a drawing of my tumor. (Yes, I saw it in the jar before they sent the miserable thing off to the pathology lab.)

Poll #1181370 Die laughing or live sober!

What's your favorite comment on my cancer diagnosis?

daveraines: Thank goodness it was shaped like macaroni, instead of spaghetti or, God forbid, lasagna.
aliquoricegirl: Who knew there'd be a time when you'd say, "I'm so glad it ulcerated!"
lasirenaolce: I can handle the cancer, but if you're going to keep boiling animal heads on the stove, we really have to talk.
jeffsoesbe: In a secret underground bunker somewhere near Washington DC, Dick Cheney is not happy. He thought they could get you. He Was Wrong!
yourbob: Never underestimate the power of a little blood in the wrong place.
martyn44: Nobody would be surprised if you did find a way of Blogging from the hereafter.
jennawaterford: Latin words are never happy things to hear from a doctor.
klingonguy: Vote those polyps off the island, I say.
jonhansen: So, the tattoo is an elder sign, as recommended by Lovecraft to repel the dreaded flying polyps?
deedop: Let me know if you need anything. Like construction of a Tubu-villainous Polyp-smiting superhero costume or something...
johno: On the plus side of your treatment, you are definitely clean inside and out.

Not, you understand, that I would like you to quit blogging about scientific experiments in parenting but to me that was the funniest. Closely followed by the tattoo. Very closely.

Does anyone know of some really, really good speech recognition software? Preferably of the type that has no issues with long, echoing sentences and has non-carporial installation methods?

Time in saddle: why bother!

I'm glad to see your own version of a rough draft has been edited by doctors. Best wishes on your recovery!

After sending that coment I had several minutes of imagining next season's Survivor: Jay Lake. Outwrite, Outblog, Outcheese.

I came this close to phoning Jeff Probst.

Sorry Jay, I can't vote. My favorite is still danjite's response to lasirenadolce's description of the tumor. "My God, I hope that wasn't Fred."
