Okay, seriously. I broke my ankle, I didn’t die. You’d think something worse had happened though given how long ago I posted. I’d be surprised if anyone was even reading this anymore. Please come back though. I apologize for being gone so long. I don’t know what I was thinking, or even what I was doing, but I promise more regular updates from now on. I was watching a lot of movies apparently (check out the movie review page) and I did see a great concert (see the concert page), but that’s really no excuse.
So what’s the latest? Well, I’ve still got another couple weeks in a cast. So that sucks. If I could find a decent power tool, or even a sharp pair of pliers, I’d have removed it already. I’m sick of hobbling around. But, I assure you, there’s nothing like a few weeks on crutches to have an appreciation for how difficult it is for people who are permanently and more severely disabled than just a broken ankle.
I’d write more now, but I’m currently watching John Calipari’s Memphis Tigers get beat, which thrills me to no end. I can’t stand John Calipari. He’s such a crybaby. Unfortunately, I can’t concentrate on writing because Dick Vitale’s voice is like having a cicada nest in your ear while sucking on a jalapeno and stuffing sparklers up your nose. Apparently I’m not a Vitale fan either. Anyway, a couple things before I go.
I owe Gleemonex a meme, so here it is:
The sound of flapping wings! Like the flutter of cloth among the towering pillars. He turned his face to the shadowy ceiling, searching with his ears. Another flutter.
