    Good evening all. I had a pretty good day today. Got my comic order in ready for September to take advantage of the DC reshuffle, sorted out some nice outdoors plastic plates and cups for me and my lady's holiday to the IoW in a couple of weeks, and to top it off got 'The Goonies' on Blu-Ray in HMV for not a lot of money (£6). How often does that honestly happen anymore, an actual bargain in HMV!.

    @ Rachael: The beauty of persistence; you get the apple and you get to see the tree grow with it. I hope you get your medical head proddings and i hope they go well.

    Me? A fairly tough day lightened by some hot skip humping action. Nice if you like that sort of thing. Friends are beginning to worry about me...

    Two old things, circumstantially related to the each other.

    I have had numbness in one foot and lower leg since an accident in high school, decades ago. A few weeks back, I wore brand-new shoes to work and, as I often do, I stumbled on the concrete steps. This time I gashed one shoe right into the leather over the top of my good foot. Luckily, it was Shoe-shine Guy's day in the building. He worked the shoe over until you couldn't see the damage unless you knew where to look. So, hooray for Shoe-shine Guy saving an expensive (to me) new shoe.

    Last week, I began having pains in the numb foot, like crotchet hooks were being shoved up my leg. On Monday, I had it checked by a neurologist. It seems that the damage may be healing ("waking up") after all these years, or another nerve has extended into the damaged area. If this keeps up, I may be able to walk with some grace, instead of clumping and stumbling around.

    @ MrMonk - Yay for the nerves healing themselves!

    @ everyone else - thanks, guys!

    Congrats, Rachael! That's really wonderful!

    Today I...hrm. I guess today I learned to not COMPLETELY freak out until my mother's "completely fine or death" diagnosis comes in next week"?

    I hit the halfway mark on the Game of Thrones book and am loving it?

    I'm going to eat a baked potato and watch Hell's Kitchen?

    I'm losing weight?

    Hm.

    I'll have something better tomorrow.

    I was finally able to get an 'A' on one of my Speech class speeches. After four 'B's it is quite pleasant. Also, it was about Tom Waits with makes it even better.

    Getting this in just under the wire, I went to this exhibition on its last day. The posters are all amazing - I'm so used to Constructivist art being the red/yellow/white/black and it was truly lovely to see the range of palettes that were used in them. Also, there was a hidden room of R. Crumb's original pages from his Kafka book and I peeped at two original Keith Haring pieces that were tucked into a back room. Fantastic gallery. The website posted all 118 pieces from the show, including the beautiful sculpture work that was in there, so I *highly* recommend visiting the page.

    I wish I'd gone to that with you, glukkake. It looks FABULOUS! (Did you ever see this old post of mine?)

    I was stressing over the project I've been banging on about here for months. I regrouped, changed my tactics, and one of the stories out of the five is done! As a matter of fact, I blew right past the 5K wordcount to almost 9K, so now I've got the opposite problem of trying to whittle that down.

    Trust me, it's a good problem to have. I didn't think I had that kind of stamina.
