This Porcupine is Feeling Fine

Here's the Shot of Lucy with Washer Womans Elbow:

incidentally I have a great Physical Therapist. I'm even getting some acupuncture. I was shocked that it doesn't hurt. I was literally shocked when after he put 4 pins in my arm then busted out with this big machine. I said whats that for doc? You gonna bust out with the jumper cables and shock me into spilling my guts? He laughed and said "You are very smart man" and proceded to attach electrodes to my pins and proceded to shock the living crap out of me. It didn't hurt. Dare I say it my arm is feeling great thank you.

Butt (head) in a Sling

This is Madness! No this is Lateral Epicondylitis. Yep Tennis Elbow. There was an old Peanuts cartoon where Lucy Van Pelt gets it but they use it's old monicker "washer womans elbow". Rich people got angered so the changed it to "Tennis Elbow". Whatever it is it hurts like heck especially when shaking hands or attempting to pick things up. The way I got it is nuts! Putting pressure on my ebow while using the mouse stretched out on my bed. The correct way to use a computer is at a desk. I'm learning the hard way! best one ever I kept reinjuring and reinjuring myself using the mouse, writing, shaking hands etc. Now I'm in a sling to insure I wont keep up this buttheaded behavior. If I don't let it heal this will become a chronic ailment! And I'm not trying to hear that.

PS: This was typed at a desk with my left hand. I don't how you lefties can stand it!?

It's all Good Good Good.

News from the Super Super Super Obsessive Cumpulsive Department: I've noticed lately that when think I say the word "Good" I actually say "Good Good Good." Upon further inspection I've noticed many people share this phenomenon. So notice closely what people tell you when you ask "How are you doing?" I also notice I've taken to repeating orders to students in rows of three. For example: “I think you should get a better pencil sharpener, also I think you should get a better pencil sharpener and if you get a chance you should um.. I don't know perhaps get a better pencil sharpener?" If they question what I asked I'll ask three more times in a totally different order. Shout outs to Vex the only person who can appreciate my mania. (He likes to measure and remeasure distances.) He bought me a cool Palomino Super long point pencil sharpener. He actually went online to do research on what pencil sharpener is the best. Now I sit there sharpening and resharpening my pencils. I can’t wait to get my hands on some more Dixon Ticonderoga Pencils (my favorite non technical pencil) I’m gonna go sharpening crazy that day. In any case I gotta sleep. Doctors appointment in the morning. I hope it will turn out good good good.
