How long has it been?

Hello to you if you happen by this blog. It’s been a while since I’ve posted, and subsequently been removed from other blogs and I’m sure from daily checks from most of the people who once read here. I hope to post more often. Just to get things out from my head, and tell you what may be happening in my day to day life. I’ll try to limit the skin rash descriptions this time.

What’s New:

The saga with my knee SEEMS to be coming to an end. I’m booked for an operation on December eighth. After that I’m to be off it for three weeks, then for the ten weeks after I can return to “light duty”, or office work. I happen to work for an accommodating company. It seems that they will not only find work for me in the office after the initial three weeks are done for the full ten weeks, but they want to keep me in the office for good.

As of January third, I’ll be a junior estimator / small project manager for “X Construction”. I’ll job shadow the senior project manager for a while then run projects on my own. We’ll see how this goes.

As excited as I am, I’m still going venture on this new path cautiously. Anything can change here, and I’m sick of counting my eggs before they’re hatched. I’m still going to keep my eyes on school. I’m going to treat this as great experience. Lord knows, I’ve switched life gears enough without a clutch to drop my planning transmition. Fuck, that last part was lame. Sorry.

I should probably stop here.

I heart Van Wilder!

Thought is personal, just like digesting food.
Just because what you see in the end is crap, it doesn’t mean the good isn’t being used.

Write that down…

Knee Update?

I've tried to write this post about my knee now for some time. Every time I start it I end up deleting everything because it sounds like crap, and because I'm sitting in limbo right now not knowing exactly what's wrong with my knee. I won't delete it tonight though, even if it makes me look like an imbecile.

I'll start by telling you about the last time I injured it. I was looking at a salt water fish tank and I turned so slightly that I have a hard time even telling you that I turned. When I felt a dull pain that turned into something I couldn’t walk on, I knew it was the same old problem. The only thing was, this time it was to stay swollen for more than a month.

My MRI was last Friday, and that was an experience. Loud noises, bright lights, good music, Slash and Axl together again, naked supermodels, and thirty minutes of staying totally still while having my legs and torso inserted into a machine you've only known for thirty seconds. When it was all over I asked if I could see a picture of my knee, then I was told - no I could not, and the test results should be at my doctor in about a week. I was about to ask for a candy for staying still for the duration of the test, but I surmised that she would have just told me she would just send it along with the images to the clinic. I know my doctor, she would have eaten it.

So here I am, no real news about it. Sorry for wasting your time.

Al's tidbit O'the day:
"Peyote is a plant is mostly found in the desert regions of northern Mexico and southern Texas because it's essentially a cactus. It takes approximately 20+ years to grow a bulb in it's pure state equal to that of a Marijuana plant. It is possible (but difficult) to duplicate and reduce the time it takes to produce enough Mescaline in the bulb (the active hallucinogenic drug in peyote) and therefore not seen in many areas outside of the region."

WhAAAA?

Some things that will never change about me (for better or worse it seems):

-I’m never going to find a route along most popular lines, no matter how hard I try.
-I’ll always have a beating, bleeding heart for another person I see that wants.
-I’ll never get over times I’ve hurt anything.
-I’ll enjoy looking into people’s hearts.
-I can to learn something from everything, if I take the time.
-I will never communicate my thoughts in their entirety. My hands and my mouth will always get in the way.
-I’ll always over-eat pasta.
-I’ll always have a place in my heart for friends.
-I will never hit anything with my car.
-I’ll never stop taking three hour baths.
-I’ll always get a funny feeling in my tummy when I see mountains... I could run up for years.
-I'll always go for long drives and think of specific friends when the songs suit them.

That’s it for now.

Al’s tidbit O’the day:
“Face the ground, reach out and grab some pants to pull yourself up. For the love of god, don’t turn off your stomach, someone WILL fall on you. Your knee can’t take it…trust me. Stupid beer.”
