Bloggess Saturday

We're going to see the Bloggess tonight at Changing Hands, whee!

Right now I'm cleaning the oven, watching more Fringe, and researching the fact that I probably have tennis elbow and I should try to avoid so much computer work. Blah. So I'm wearing a brace right now and I took Tylenol and I STILL haven't scheduled my physical.

In the meanwhile, it HURTS. Mostly when I straighten my arm after it's been still a while, or when I move to pick something up (gripping), and all the articles I'm reading indicate tennis elbow (yes, Internet diagnosis).

President Who.

Not to jinx myself, but I THINK I've lost 16 pounds since I started the low-carb thing June 25. (I say I "think" because it's been so hard lately to keep it off.)

1) Jealous of you seeing The Bloggess tonight! (I wasn't able to get to the bookstore she was at in Houston - not to mention that I couldn't buy her book at the bookstore's price of $25.)
2) Yay for the weight loss (no matter how much it is pound-wise, as long as you feel better, that's what matters).
3) Boo for the tennis elbow. You might want to try advil, because it will block the prostaglandins that help cause the muscle cramping and pain.
4) Awesome. I definitely think it's possible that Abe could have been a Time Lord (though he must have been in his last incarnation if he died after that shot in the head).

Yeah, all I'm sure of is it really freakin' HURTS.

It was fun! She's a terrific lady in person, well worth seeing.

Oh, I like the way they feel, it's just the inconvenience and the mess (and sitting still); I never can keep them in place comfortably.

But they gave me an idea yesterday on the "how to keep cool" tips, and that was making "ice packs" with RICE -- I'm going to pick up some cheap bulk rice today and make one and see how that works!

ah okay. I have the gel packs in slings designed to stay (because I'm a pro at hurting myself and I have all kinds of ER booty)

ooo that sounds interesting. hope it works

I'll have to pick something like that up some time if I can find one. I have the big packs to slide into a walking boot, since all my surgeries were foot surgeries, but nothing for my arm.
