Falling Apart

Through injury, aging and good, ol' fashioned slacking my body has been falling apart these past several years, and this process has only accelerated this year.

A few weeks ago I dislocated a rib, a combination of sifting rocks out of 10+ tons of soil in my new backyard and one really lousy yoga class (note to self: remember never to try anything involving the word "fusion," be it food, yoga or otherwise). Then, just as I was getting back into exercising groove, I bruised the bones in my left foot playing soccer this past Sunday. Ironically, it was the first time I'd played soccer since injuring my RIGHT foot last summer during an air guitar competition (yes... I know...). So another four weeks out of action, this time hobbling around with a cane.

It's all a bit disheartening. Still, I do have hope that I'll be able to get back on track with my physical fitness. So that I can return to doing the things I love to do, as well as start working on the creative projects that I've started (they involve a certain level of physical and martial prowess that I'm currently not at).

And in body-unrelated news, the logic board just failed in my Macbook Pro. It's now in the giant glass Apple cube on 5th Avenue. Just to let you know what kind of week I'm having.

Thank you for making me laugh after a shitty week of work failings, health issues (though no air guitar competitors were hurt) and other similar happenings that left me questioning my sanity.

Get well soon!! You have quite a few fans from Germany (actually a loadful of my co-workers at the office) that look forward to more of your wonderful entertaining videos.

What Shyaporn said, ALWAYS!

Saved my self a lot of hassle with my old iBook, they ended up replacing a brick and screen. Extended AppleCare to the rescue.

And gentle beings it is called getting older, deal. :p Sucks don't it?
