Get well soon, Antoinette!

Word has just reached Spinster HQ that veteran blamer Antoinette Niebieszczanski is in medical lockup, nursing, as she says, “a sizeable blood clot in my right lung.” We are grateful, Antoinette, that the clot is not in your obstreperal lobe. While you cool your heels, here’s some more heartwarming nature crap. May the Blame be with you.

“S” is for “Sock it to that clot!”

    Sending good wishes to Annette. I think you’ve misspelled her name, Jill.

  2. Jill

    “I think you’ve misspelled her name, Jill.”

    It is impossible not to misspell her name.

  3. MissPrism

    Get well soon, O unspellable one! Hope the hospital food doesn’t suck too bad.

  4. AsterMedallion

    That picture scared the crap outta me. I thought you’d gotten a photo of her blood clot with your fancy-phone.

    Antoinette Niebieszczanski,

    Having cut and pasted your name from Jill’s post, so as to be able to blame any spelling errors upon her, it’s good to hear you are improving. May your boredom be quickly relieved with a discharge back to the comforts of your home.

  6. Laughingrat

    Her comments are always great to read. I hope she gets well very soon. Perhaps that heartwarming nature crap will literally scare the blood clot away?

  7. B. Dagger Lee

    Hock that blood clot right into the patriarchy’s eye! Then get well and get back here and comment and stuff because I always enjoy you.

  8. Casey

    I’m hoping for Antionette’s rapid recovery and resumption of excellent blaming.

  9. Valerie M

    Get well soon, Antoinette.

  10. thebeardedlady

    Get well soon, Antoinette. Look forward to you being back in top blaming form.

  11. procrastinatrix

    Hi, Antoinette Niebieszczanski! Please get well soon, and come back to blame with us again.


  12. Antoinette Niebieszczanski

    The food here does indeed suck. There is a marked absence of sustenance for the obstreperal lobe — tacos, margaritas, wine, and chocolate. I’m trying to bribe friends and relations into smuggling stuff in, but so far no dice.

    The white-coated storm troopers are seeking to balance the level of rat poison (warfarin) in my blood. When this is accomplished, I’ll be sprung. Thanks for the happy thoughts — the humor, wit and wisdom of the Blametariat is most therapeutic.

  13. slythwolf

    Don’t let the clot (or the hospital) grind you down, Antoinette!

  14. Comrade PhysioProf

    Feel better soon!!11!!!1!

  15. Ron Sullivan

    Yeah, what they said. Holy crap.

  16. Helen

    Get well soon, Antoinette!

  17. speedbudget

    I can’t say it any better than Seinfeld already did.

  18. Shopstewardess

    Get well soon Antoinette.

    I successfully smuggled a bottle of something pleasantly alcoholic to my 94 year old neighbour when she was hospitalised for some weeks earlier this year. I suspect the nurses knew what was going on and turned a blind eye. (I did check for contraindications with the medicine first.) More power to your elbow, and that of your visitors, as appropriate.

    Best wishes for a speedy recovery, AN [see I’m not even gonna attempt mangling your name!]. I have been doing lots of research on low-carb diets as I struggle through the headaches & malaise while purging ye ol’ bod of my toxins of choice, chocolate & caffeine. Hopefully I will be able to boast in a couple of wks that it’s been worthwhile (after the 1st 2 wks it’s SUPPOSED to be smooth sailin’!) – can you sense my skepticism from here?

  20. Pantsuit Sally

    Get well soon! Blame long and prosper.

  21. tinfoil hattie

    Yikes, Antoinette, sorry to hear that! Here’s to a fast recovery.

  22. Aunti Disestablishmentarian

    Na zdrowie, Antoinette!

  23. CassieC

    Get well soon, A!

  24. birkwearingblamer

    Sending healing thoughts your way, Antoinette Niebieszczanski. Best wishes for a speedy recovery. Hope that you’re kicking patriarchy @$$ soon!

  25. Squiggy

    Antoinette Niebieszczanski- I’m so happy to hear that you’re gonna spring out of there shortly. You’re sorely missed back here at the Blametariat Ranch. Get that bandanna starched and pressed for your homecoming!

  26. Kate

    I don’t post often (except to start fights, apparently) but I always read the comments and yours are some of the most enlightening and enjoyable, AN. Please heal up right quick; the P needs your jaundiced upon cast upon it once more.

  27. Chris Clarke

    Sending good wishes, Antoinette. Feel better soon.

  28. Chris Clarke

    Oh, and speaking of heartburning nature crap, blamers looking for random targets of their justifiable outrage could do worse than wandering over to this pornified Sierra Club blog post. Apparently, if we all just write our congresspeople about climate change, supermodels will get naked. Or something.

  29. madeleine

    Get well and get out of there soon.

  30. Slade

    ‘May the Blame be with you.’ Can’t add much to that.

    Spit that clot out and feel better.

  31. mearl

    Antoinette, all you have to do is don your pirate ninja Blamer suit and then rock out and wail on your guitar so hard that the clot flies right out of there, screaming in terror. No clot shall get in the way of your sharp Blaming! Get well soon.

  32. Hattie

    Hang in there, sister.

  33. Kwailin

    Get well soon, Antoinette Niebieszczanski!

  34. vinoveritas

    Maybe news of the “Serial Canadian Groin Kicker” will cheer you and speed your recovery? http://www.nationalpost.com/story.html?id=2155193
    I know, I know, violence is bad. But: Haha!

  35. Oaktown Girl

    Antoinette –
    did you get the blood clot from over-exerting yourself stomping centipedes? If so, I’d like to thank you for your service and your sacrifice. Hope you’re up and around and stompin’ again real soon!

  36. Jodie

    Miss you, Antoinette! Hope you get out of there soon!

  37. yttik

    Get well soon, Antoinette!

    A groin kicker terrorizing the streets of BC, huh? My bad, I had a snort reading how she needs to go to a nuthouse.

  38. procrastinatrix

    Hey, thanks for the link vinoveritas. I had to laugh at this part:

    “My doctors say I will still be able to have children,” Mr. Clark said. “But at 22 that’s not something I want a stranger, this woman, to decide.”

    Oh the rich smell of privilege. But yes, violence is bad.

    Hey, AN–hope that clot is history and you are back to blaming very soon!

  39. Crow Meris

    Antoinette, I’m de-lurking to wish you a speedy recovery, as well as rapid access to tacos, margaritas, wine, chocolate, and anything else your heart desires.

  40. slownews

    Dearie, so sorry. Hope these belated best wishes find you well out of hospital and on the road to recovery.

  41. rootlesscosmo

    Get well soon, Antoinette!

  42. Citizen Taqueau

    Antoinette, get well soon from a former (or is there such a thing?) Girl Named Captain.
