William Shatner Blocked My Ass

Priceline Negtiator

So here’s the story of how I found out that William Shatner blocked my ass on Twitter. I was scrolling through Twitter, as I do, and I came across a tweet from Mark Hamill retweeting something from William Shatner and this is what I see.

My first thought is that perhaps William Shatner deleted his tweet and that’s why it’s unavailable, so just to be sure I tap it and this is the next thing I see.

WHAT? Why in the world did William Shatner block ME? I’ve never said anything negative to him. I’ve admired him my entire life. I loved him in “Star Trek”, heck, I played with his action figure when I was a child. I loved him in ALL of the “Star Trek” movies. I loved him in “T.J. Hooker” and “Haven” and “Weird or What?” I absolutely loved him in the Priceline commercials, and I think that’s why he blocked me.

So when I found out he blocked me, I went to Twitter and searched my Twitter name which is @Xanapus and his Twitter name, which is also his actual name, and I found this tweet that someone had RT’d of my tweet. I couldn’t find my actual tweet.

 

So my tweet was referring to this article here from E Online saying Priceline Kills Off William Shatner’s Negotiator—Watch His Grisly End. So what is wrong with me saying rest in peace to “William Shatner’s character in the Priceline commercials.”???? What did I do that was so wrong? I was sad, I was upset, and I was in mourning for his character. Was what I said a blockable offense? No, it’s absolutely not. There was not one negative thing in my tweet to him.

Priceline did kill him off, he went over a bridge in a bus and his character did in fact die, but they brought him back with a daughter. Kaley Cuoco Is Now Priceline Negotiator William Shatner’s Secret Daughter. I was so happy they brought him back from the dead and I love Kaley Cuoco as his daughter.

You know what? I’m really hurt that he decided to block me over such a harmless tweet, but if he has such thin skin that me saying RIP to his character is going to make him block me, then fine, I honestly don’t care. I won’t love him any less than I have my entire life. He will always be a hero to me, so you do you William Shatner.

Update: Ok so here’s some new information. Apparently he is blocking a LOT of people. Check it out. Go to Twitter and search Blocked by William Shatner. Someone said that William Shatner is a huge Trump fan, so perhaps he is going through the list of his followers and finding out who has tweeted anything negative about Trump and blocking them. Someone else told me it is a badge of honor to be blocked by William Shatner, so I added that badge to my Twitter profile.

Betty Boop C2C crochet blanket

In September and October I was crocheting a blanket made out of squares with many colors each with a black background. I was making this for my aunt for Christmas.

I was watching a video on YouTube and came across one from The Crochet Crowd that was teaching how to make C2C crochet, which stands for corner to corner. I thought it seemed interesting because you could make a blanket with pictures. I then thought hmmm… I wonder if they have a Betty Boop pattern, and I found one from http://www.TwoMagicPixels.com.

I started making this blanket right away. I had some white, but not enough, then found out the new yarn isn’t the same shade of white or texture, and I had trouble finding the right shade of skin for Betty, so I made a piece up to a certain point, then when I bought white I just started over fresh, and it took me a month to make this blanket.

I had to buy different brands because one brand didn’t have the same color for the skin, so the skin and the black, white and red are all different textures.

My Aunt loved it. I was hoping to make her a couch blanket because she takes a daily nap on the couch, like a ritual, but it’s way too big and heavy for a couch nap lol. It would probably be way too warm and she’s probably have to take it off after 5 minutes lol. Her bed is king size, the blanket is queen size, so that’s not good, but hey, I tried right?

Anyway, so yeah I learned a new pattern and gave an awesome gift.

Here is an example of how it’s crocheted along with the pattern next to it. It’s literally worked from corner to corner.

New problem seems to be no problem

I mentioned in a previous post that I was having complications from my recent surgery to remove my parotid gland. The problem was that I am still generating new saliva which is causing some pain when it fills up too much and because it doesn’t drain into my mouth, but instead my neck.

I have an update on the issue. It doesn’t seem to be getting too big and I can feel it drain on its own without me having to push on it to milk it, for the lack of a better word. How it does it is very strange, it feels like sweat is running down my face along the scar along my ear. Although I am not positive that that is what it is, that could just be my scar tingling as it has been doing. I am feeling it right now as I type this because I just ate a bowl of cereal which generated some saliva in the gland.

I actually don’t know where the saliva would drain from that gland.  When I have pushed on it before, I feel a vein bulge inside of my mouth which is near where the parotid gland used to be in front of my earlobe, so it is possible that there is a vein, or tube or whatever you want to call it that allows the saliva to travel to reach its destination to release somewhere.  Perhaps that was releasing into my parotid gland which would release into my mouth, or perhaps it had a tube in common with the parotid gland, which is now gone since the parotid gland is gone.

So I don’t think that I have much to worry about. It seems to be correcting itself, despite how freaking strange it feels lol.

december 18 2013 When I look into a mirror I don’t even notice it much anymore. I mean, I see a little lump, but it looks normal considering there is still a hole beside it. The hole isn’t even that noticeable anymore. I mean, when I look at it in the mirror with a shadow on it, it’s very noticeable, but I just took a picture using the flash and you can barely see it. All you can really see is the scar, which seems to stand out along my neck. When I touch it with my fingers I can still feel a hole, but it does seem to be filling in.  When you look at the image to the left you can definitely see where the saliva is filling up in the saliva gland which has no exit into my mouth, but instead in my neck.  It’s that little marble sized ball.

I will definitely be speaking to my doctor about what is happening because he told me that there was a collection of “spit” (his words) that has collected and it will be absorbed into my body, but it’s nothing to worry about.  The very fact that it is still collecting, or generating new “spit” that is draining into my neck seems like it should be something that I should worry about, but I am sure it is hardly a problem considering if it were draining into my mouth, I would end up swallowing it, so it ends up being absorbed into my body regardless of how or where it drains, so again, I don’t see that much of a problem.

So that seems to be it for now.  My appointment with the surgeon isn’t until March, but my next appointment with my regular doctor is in January. I will mention it to both doctors and if it is an issue then I will post another update, otherwise I don’t see much of a reason to add another update on this because it doesn’t seem to be causing as much of a problem.
