scody, you probably don't know me at all, but ever since I've been here at MetaFilter, I've really, really enjoyed reading your contributions here. I don't know how many times I've come into an AskMe thread all set to say something, when you've already said pretty much everything I wanted to say much more eloquently and often with humor, and I think, "Yeah, what scody said." I am also sending my best wishes your way. Please be well.

Alright, it's time I came out and admitted this: when I met scody at the first Los Angeles MeFi Meetup (the one where I brought MeFi buttons), she immediately replaced madamjujujive as my #1 MetaFilter Crush (but hey, mjjj, #2 is still okay).

Of course I'll never forgive her for having more awesome Celebrity Anecdotes than I do. (Chuck Jones!!! Paul Weller!?!?!)

But her grace under pressure and under incredibly poor health... first the thyroid, then the jaw, now the whole other end... is a standard we should all aspire to (even if most of us, myself included, will never achieve it).

And, scody, if you ever want any more MeFi buttons to award to your best doctors and nurses or just to hoard for yourself, just let me know.

And I think it's time we institute a new MetaFilter punctuation standard: using the semi-colon ";" as shorthand for "Get Well & Be Strong".

I'll be standing on a hill in Marin counting hawks today (assuming the fog clears), and I will shout to every southbound raptor I see: "Say hi to scody for me!"

So if a redtail or something flies over your head and screams something unintelligible, that's from me.

I've waffled back and forth over whether to send a mushy MeMail for a few days, and came down on the "against" side because I get overly... something... about this kind of stuff and Scody doesn't seem the type for weepy sentimentality, but hey, let it be known that if there's a single damn thing I can do from Texas, I am good for the doing, (just ask -- it is done) and you are in my thoughts and prayers, whatever good that does. Scody, you're one of the best Mefites, for sure, and as per usual, it's the people that make this place. I'm pullin' for ya all the way from here.

I think it might be time to turn the powers I typically reserve for evil to a more noble cause; I'm going to build a giant device that projects my mood across great distances. Normally, I'd use something like this to foment chaos in the world, but instead, I think I'm direct powerful waves of feel-good-get-well at the much loved Scody.

So, in about an hour or so, if you get this overwhelming sense of "Awww yeah", that was me.

I wasn't totally sure who scody was until I went and looked at her posting history and said immediately thought, "Oh, right she's the one who posted that... oh yeah, and that.... wow -- that too... and also that, which I loved..."

I went from barely knowing of her to being a fan in short order. Get much better, scody, and come back!

Yet another admirer chipping in to say "Get well soon!". Here's hoping the remaining surgery and chemo go well too.

Oh shit, this makes my heart hurt. Scody, I was just missing you in AskMe just now - literally - and clicked over here and saw this.

If you see this, I'd love to make you some home-baked goodies in the mail. Let me know if and when the time is right and what you like - until then, know you're loved and missed. Feel better! <3

scody, I started listening to Paul Weller and became a fan because of you. (Don't worry, I said "a" fan -- you're still the #1 Paul Weller fan!) Thank you for introducing me (and no doubt others) to his music.

And I've said this to you before but I'll say it again: count me as another person who appreciates your perspective, and your thoughtful and funny posts. I wish you all the best.

Awww, so sad to hear about this, I'm sure you'll be back on your feet and healthy in no time. Your answers have helped me a lot, whether they be to my own questions, my anonymous/sockpuppet heartache questions, or to everyone else's. Plus you got my frivolous Roadrunner question into Time Magazine! Big hugs!

Scody, I think about you every time The Jam or The Style Council come up on my ipod. I hope you're doing well and recovering nicely. You have the best profile pic on this site (I could never get my hair to get that proper new wave look, but god knows I tried), and your posts and comments really do make MetaFilter the best of the web.
Feel better soon, ok?

Another blog update last night, no real new news yet, scody's "in ICU, but doing good".
posted by cortex (staff) at 7:17 AM on September 1, 2010


It's my hope, really; that I, for one, believe that the colon removed; when debulked properly; and meticulously; can be a new beginning; a wonderful beginning; long live the wily semicolon!

;;;;;scody;;;;; (a scody hug)

Read your Amazon wishlist last night, wondering what to send you for your recuperation. Funny how with those mosaic pieces I got to know you a little better. What an interesting and varied list.

My loving non-theistic prayers that the pain is easing, that your immune system is alive and kicking, that you're feeling some relief that this part of the ordeal is over. That you will heal well.

It's so beautiful to see how loved you are. And you are.

Thanks to cortex, I just discovered the blog and the Amazon Wishlist. Something from your list is on the way to you; I decided on a book rather than the knife, not knowing whether you had homicidal tendencies lurking after a major operation. I know I would have.

Can anyone help with buying from a US wishlist with a UK debit card? Amazon.com doesn't recognise my card, tried searching for scody's list on amazon.co.uk but it doesn't show up :(
posted by ellieBOA at 12:19 PM on September 1, 2010


I believe you can buy something through Amazon.co.uk and then go to the wishlist and mark it down as purchased without using a debit or credit card.

I much prefer being verbally abused by strong, healthy people. I'm sure a word to the wise is sufficient. Also, I'm directing the full force of my negativity at your illness. Enough said.

Hi Everybody, this is Scody's boyfriend. Thanks for all the support, and kind wishes. She's doing good. She 's out of ICU and feeling OK. She was reading all the comments yesterday and it really cheered her up. She says if feels weird not to post here everyday, and she can't wait to be back pontificating about Paul Weller.

She sends lots of love to you all,

Mr. Scody
