The Days Ahead...

...look dark & dreary for all the faithful Boys & Girls who flock to DBM by the tens. Wilma's schedule is chock-full of all sorts of activity, not the least of which includes 3 more days of work {money - yay!}, some exercising {I know, it's so unlike me, but I have to}, & some avoiding the computer.

What?!?! Avoiding the computer? We don't even know who you are anymore, Wilma!

Things are progressing slowly in the sore back/shoulder/dead arm/cramped muscle front & part of the blame {read: 95%} can be placed squarely at the feet of my shiny new laptop, its predecessor & its cousin at work. The position I am in for typing strains the problem area, causing over-extension & knotting, painful, painful knotting that has required 3 sessions with the masseuse so far {painful, painful sessions where I CRY!} & many more to come. Like ONE TOOTH'S worth of sessions until I'm cured, most likely. For those who still figure things out in Canadian dollars, that's $1100.

So now, I'm off to order up some yoga videos & do some exercising {I can't even say it out loud without giggling a little, it's so ludicrous!}. In the meantime, here are some links to some fabulously entertaining places you should go for amusement & time-filling while I'm MIA:

  • How Old Is Your Brain? See if your brain is as old as your body ~ or ~ (perish the thought) ~ OLDER !! Read the following instructions since the game is in Japanese:
    1. Touch 'start'
    2. Wait for 3, 2, 1.
    3. Memorize the number's position on the screen, then click the circle from the SMALLEST number to the BIGGEST number.
    4. At the end of game, the computer will tell you the age of your brain.
  • 80s Lyrics Quiz
  • President Bush ScreenSaver ~ look out! He's falling!
  • Personalized email cards ~ too, too much fun! If you make one, please email it to me so I can have a laugh or 12.

I am seriously bummed. First, as is only right, for the pain you are suffering and for what sounds like a long road back to feeling better. (When you are feeling better, find someone who knows lots about ergonomics to help figure out how not to have it happen again.)

Secondly, though, I'm bummed for selfish me. I really enjoy your postings and look forward to finding new ones when I check in. I don't get email anymore either, but didn't mind so much with your blog to read. What am I supposed to do while you get better?

I'm bummed. Get better soon.

Aw, shucks. You'd make me blush ~ if only I could still do such a thing.

Never fear. When there is something to say, it'll be said. & probably, you'll know more than you needed to.
