Had to sleep in a little this morning since I was up quite late last night. This morning, when I got up, I discovered an incredible pain in my left shoulder blade. Apparently the exercising that I was doing while playing the video game was way more than I was used to and I have some amazing muscle pain today. I was not expecting this at all. It was so bad that I spent the entire day having massive muscle spasms all over and can barely move my head. I mostly feel fine, it is just a lot of muscle pain. Not fun, but whatever. Pain that isn’t damage doesn’t really bother me.
I reached out to the office this morning to get the news, whatever it might be, that I missed yesterday because the call did not come in. I really dislike living here sometimes. The complete lack of communications services is really rough. So I waited all day to hear back but did not get a call back today. Hold tight, I’m sure I’ll get a call in the morning. I’m guessing that it is nothing too urgent if I went all day without a call back.
This evening I decided that I needed get out and see people. So around eight I jumped in the shower, got dressed and at nine I left the house and walked downtown to the Quietman Pub which is not a bad walk at all. Of course it is all downhill on the way there. It is the walk home that is rough. I listened to the latest Prairie Home Companion as I walked and then some Rick Steves. Now that I am not commuting to the office I do not have the time to listen to my podcasts and books like I did before. So that was nice.
The evening was gorgeous. Fifty seven degrees and calm. A great night for a walk. Unfortunately before leaving the driveway I dripped in the darkness and wrenched by back. With the pain from earlier now it was really bad suddenly. I was having spasms so bad while I walked that my body would twist over and over again. It felt like I was holding a spinning bicycle wheel, it was that bad.
I got the pub and ordered an awesome field greens salad, turnip soup and some avocados. It was a nice dinner. I hung out with some locals and then the Hudson Room crew came in when they closed and LA of LA Soul came in and he and I hung out until about one thirty. He was actually nice enough to give me a lift home so that I would not have to walk! That was awesome. So I was home quite quickly. It was a really nice evening, although I was in pain the entire time.
