Wednesday So Far

Oh cool! One of my cousins, known online as Tha Wook­ie, has devel­oped some Appalachi­an Back­pack­ing Cours­es!

Inter­est­ing read, although noth­ing new to me: Con­fes­sions of a Lib­er­tar­i­an Polygamist

Note to local dance stu­dio: “Learn to hip hop here” caus­es me to think of East­er bun­nies in train­ing rather than any human endeavor.

And while I’m at it—note to the guy in the cross­walk yesterday:
It’s a six-lane road, not count­ing the var­i­ous turn lanes. The fact that you stepped into the cross­walk JUST as the light was turn­ing green on our side could be for­giv­en. Even the fact that you were tak­ing the most lan­guid stroll I have ever seen in such sur­round­ings might be explained (per­haps by the pants falling off your ass?). But stop­ping in the mid­dle of the high­way to yell and ges­tic­u­late wild­ly (ges­tures which, I must note, who­ev­er you were speak­ing to on your cell phone could not see), was a bit much. There­fore you should not have been so sur­prised when traf­fic final­ly start­ed just zoom­ing past you.

In oth­er news—okay, whinging—I think I’ve done Some­thing Bad to my left ankle. I twist­ed it a bit last week. It was swollen, so I switched from my (pre­cise­ly fit­ted) san­dals to oth­er shoes. I had­n’t real­ly thought about it, because the weath­er has been a bit cool for san­dals, any­way. But today the ankle reward­ed a slight flex with a nasty pierc­ing pain that caused me to cry out. 

Any­thing that gets through the mess of pain meds and anti-inflam­ma­to­ries in my sys­tem is fair­ly sur­pris­ing, so I think I’d best go to the doc this afternoon.
