they pay to kiss your feet

since there's no one else around, we let our hair grow long and forget all we used to know. then our skin gets thicker from living out in the snow.

are you kidding me?

so, i can't even begin to believe the list of mishaps that have plagued me since the end of may. but i'll try.

May 28th, two stress fractures to my left foot. prognosis: good, but no running or exercise until it heals. oh, and one awesome aircast boot.

Second week of June, a 70-hour work week, which was fun, but entirely exhausting.

Third week of June, 3 migraines. Bad ones.

First week of July, the flu. It hangs around into the second week of July.

July 10, after feeling badly for neglecting Gus due to my need to sleep all day because of the flu, I sat down to play with him. He scratched my eye. Later, my eye was red and filled with puss. called the eye doctor who agreed to meet me at the office at 10 p.m. to take a look. sure enough - eye is infected and was swollen because of a scratch on its surface. i'm sent out the door with an Rx for $60 eye drops, an order not to wear my contact until it is better and to scheduel a follow-up appointment in two days.

this thursday, i return to the podiatrist to see if i can take the aircast off. wonder what she'll say....

    that sucks. but you're still alive. cheer up.

    today i mixed a show for kids, and there was a retarded kid in the audience who started screaming during the show. everyone looked, and even the actors had to kind of take a moment to see what was going on. this kid just screaming there for no apparent reason, and his mom had to take him out. he looked like he was about 13. we're lucky to be alive and semi-normal. :)

    i'm not saying... i'm just saying.

    How did Gus scratch your eye in the future? (Today is the 11th).

    I'll let this typo slide, though, considering you probably can't see the keyboard or screen with your puss-filled eye and all.
