Kingdom Hospital: Africa

Hello world within The UCverse.
Finally, after days upon days, illness and epidemic have left my village in Africa, and as the African proverb reads. “I’m thankful that I am not those other starving bastards.”

After encountering the truest of jungle fevers, I had the fortune to visit my first third world hospital since my birth. It wasn’t the amount of dirt on the floors that put me off, and it wasn’t the obvious stains and remnants of blood, urine, and someone elses hair in the hospital bed that made me dislike my experience.

It was the nurse. So attractive. Such a Bitch.

However, one can learn that there is always opportunity coming from misfortune. It makes me remember the line from The Devil Wears Prada,

“I am one stomach flu away from my ideal weight.”

Those are sad but fabulous facts of life. Right now my body has withered away to something like Christian Bale in the “The Machinist,” but in all seriousness when I look in the mirror I see something that resembles a cross between The Situation and Vinny (imagine that).

Other positives were now knowing that I have survived a more disgusting endeavor than anything seen on Fear Factor, but since this is Africa, there will certainly be no cash prize in the end.

The worst part is I actually want to go back and find that nurse :

Africa only has so many options :P

Questions for You:
If you HAD to pick one place in Africa, where would you go? (obligatory)
What is your most positive hospital experience? (for a change)
Overall: what do you think of nurses? (hot or not? You decide).

  1. um, Egypt or South Africa. I would have at one time gladly had mono to lose weight and you quoted the Devil Wears Prada which is awe-some. My mom is a nurse, so that's Freudian territory, chief!

  2. I would like to go to the specific spot that you were at and find that nurse.

  3. Also, WHY have you blacked out certain portions of the dark continent? Is this some alternative plague-ridden future?

  5. Egypt/South Africa

    Had heart surgery and DIDN'T die

    I know a lot of nurses personally and they don't do anything for me sexually, but some of them have really great/sick senses of humour. Also, because they've experienced a lot of disgusting things, never let them know you're in any way squeamish or they'll torture you with their stories. New Drs and EMTs are where it's at for me.

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
