Back in...Blue. A few updates.

I wanted to begin by thanking so many of you for the outpouring of support I received about the situation with my dad. I decided to go to New York to see him. I figured there was a lot more to lose if I didn't go. The situation--the one, you know, that my relatives were negligent in telling me--was that he had had a heart attack and had an open heart surgery. He was out cold when I went to visit. I stayed for around two hours and sat there, writing a letter while I watched him sleep. I wonder how my letter will be received. I wonder if I'll know if he even bothered to read it or not. I met his wife for the first time, which was interesting to say the least. But, I did my part, stayed two hours and left my letter. I came back to Boston the next day, feeling satisfied I'd done all I could. My dad's surgery went well, and they think he'll make a full recovery. The family members I did see while there were not not very receptive--doing everything from cursing at me to ignoring me--so I ignored them and stayed at a hotel that night, declining the invitation to stay at my aunt's house.

I went to a job interview today--the one at GLAD. One of the guys was a complete asshole, but I think I did all right. They kept fishing for answers and seemed to be frustrated that I wasn't an idiot. There's another round of interviews next week, and so we'll see if I'm called back for that. I'm still looking for other options

I'm filling out my sign-up for [info]smutty_claus and I realized I haven't read het in so long I don't know what pairings I like. I've settled on Snape/Lily so far. :P I'll go see what the other participants have requested for inspiration! *giggles at [info]snegurochka_lee's length--er, lengthy sign-up*

I need to be writing my very late contribution to a fest that I'm not sure if they'll accept at this point. *sigh*

By the way, if any of you want to be on my political rants or music filters, go here! I feel a political rant coming on...

*waves to the new friends on my flist*

My father is in the hospital -- again :(

So, I just learned my father is in the hospital again. My father and I have a bad history and I've not met him properly since I was two-years-old. He's an utter asshole and I really do not like him. The only time I saw him as an adult, he was in a coma.


I got a phone call this morning from a relative in North Carolina and she told me I should know my father is back in the hospital. He's in serious condition and it's life-threatening. She wouldn't give me details because "she didn't feel comfortable" imparting them.

I had no reason not to believe her, but I called another relative in New York--where my dad lives--and she confirmed it's true and that, if I were any sort of human being, I'd go visit my dad tomorrow after he has some sort of surgery. She wouldn't tell me anything.

It's absolutely infuriating that no one will give me any details! But it sounds very serious...and as much as I hate my father I still want to go.

We were going to have a party at my house tomorrow, too. :( But I don't know what else to do. I'd be driving to Buffalo, NY.

I just don't know what to do. I'm going to stop crying, go out and get some food/coffee, and clear my mind.

Sometimes ignorance is not bliss.
