Christmas Season 2023 Updates

Just want to have a fresh comment thread since it has been a couple of months.

Bryan’s life has been mostly uneventful, or at least he hasn’t obsessively documented his life as much as he used to.

This week Bryan suddenly appears in an arm sling with no explanation. It’s not clear if he was further injured or if doctors are telling him he needs to wear it until he gets surgery.

Bryan does not elaborate meaningfully but it appears he has surgery scheduled soon. Someone (hospital, VA, insurance, etc.) is paying for him to be put up in a hotel, which I am not opposed to, but Bryan is complaining that the hospital is “two hours away” and he says he cannot safely drive. I guess it is implied that the big bad “They” did this on purpose but it just sounds like bureaucratic incompetence to me.

If I were in that situation I would just ask them to pay for a cab or Uber if I couldn’t afford it myself.

Bryan had some kind of altercation at the New York Presbyterian Hospital on or around 12/11 where he claims he was physically assaulted by a nurse and had security called on him. I doubt this happened the way he tells it.

Candy is currently using the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport as her personal homeless shelter. For the most part, this is being tolerated other than the occasional security officer telling her she’s not allowed to sleep there.

I’m generally in favor of leaving homeless people alone if they’re not actively causing problems. However Candy is definitely causing problems. Candy thinks nobody else is allowed to charge their phones and that anyone who charges their phone in her vicinity is a satanist and a gangstalker. The idea that airports especially during holiday travel season can get busy is lost on her.

Bonus clip: Candy lies about her panhandling activities. She says she is polite and never gets rude to people; it’s always everyone else that is rude to her. This clip is followed up with another clip of Candy being rude and nasty to someone who doesn’t give her any money.
