A Dubious but Positive Milestone

I realized late today that I'm more distracted by pain in my back as opposed to pain around the surgical incision. I think that means things are progressing more or less as they should. I think I am running into a partial CFS block when it comes to the sitting up for long periods, but I look forward to a much-needed post-surgery osteopathic treatment next Tuesday which should go a long way towards fixing the back issue and righting the ship energy-wise too.

I enjoyed a reasonably packed day of Olympic coverage today and am hoping for key US wins in both hockey and curling tomorrow. I have really gotten into this curling thing. If I had a greater flexibility in terms of choosing activities in which I participate, I would seriously consider looking for a local place I could learn this sport. I think there might be some activity in Glen Burnie, much to my amazement.

I'd love to see a curler in the family! Personally, I have the personality for the frenetic, rapid sweeping of the brush not the steady hand of the "pusher" (?)...

Hope your treatment brings you some relief.

Yes, I believe curling positions are broken down into 4 roles, the pusher, the dealer, the user, and the "narc" or something along those lines. That goes a long way toward explaining how the sport was invented in the first place I figure.

So why didn't you say so? I used to have all sizes of curlers, but now I only have a curling iron...will that do? Be careful plugging it in. Don't want to overload the breakers.

That will do, but I'll need 10 of them to field 2 teams.

I'm hoping the osteopath treatment improves your back and allows you to sit up longer.

I heard that Andrea Bollicelli (sp?) is singing at the closing Olympic ceremonies. No doubt "Time to Say Goodbye" which was written for a retiring German boxing champ. Go figure.

Take it easy and enjoy all the games you watch and play!

I saw Pavarotti perform in the opening ceremony. I was sorta sad about it actually, because he's not what he once was. I feel bad about seeing possibly the best tenor ever finish a brilliant career with mediocre performances.
