Up and down weekend--

Deviant organized a group to see "Watchmen" on Friday. I'm not up to writing a review of it right now, but sufficed to say, it surpassed my expectations, which were, really, not high, so it was a good, strong movie, and a reasonably faithful adaptation.

Saturday=birthday party. Ran up to a community garden fund-raiser sale, fought with 20 minutes of lines to buy two basils and a dill. This may not have been a good use of time, but Whines had breakfast and saved me a pancake, so everyone was happy.

Came home, cleaned up a little, barbequied chicken, burgers, hot dogs, and Turtle and N came over and grilled corn with wasabi butter. Good to see people, and being surrounded by 20-somethings makes being increasingly late 30-somethings a little easier :)

Unfortunatley, I'd been courting a backache all weekend, and it's really caught up to me now. Writing this entry is about the most time I'd spent vertically today. It's fading a bit, mostly because Folfy gave me some magic pills from his medicine cabinet that are taking most of the edge off of. Turtle gave me a nice massage, good visiting time and it felt really good, and helped me get to sleep, but the pain came back with a vengeance this morning :(

Reading "what Einstein told his chef V2" today. Good reading :) A neat technique for making custard in like five minutes. If it works, wow!

Mom's having all sorts of technical problems at her house, and I'm regretting that I can't boogie down there to help :(

Aaaanyway, feeling a little better every hour, I hope I can be mobile tomorrow.

Happy Belated Birthday! Hope you keep feeling better too. Maybe a hot bubble bath in your awesome tub would help? If you keep feeling bad, maybe I can take a whack(?!) at yer muscles on the weekend.

if you have plain white rice and an old athletic tube sock,

you can put about a pound of white rice (not instant) in a tube sock (so it is 2/3-3/4 full not stuffed, about size of your forearm minus wrist and elbow) and sew or knot the top, then microwave it for a few minutes and you get a moist heat (the rice gets moisture from the atmosphere. don't add water or it will cook) that conforms to your back. it takes some trial and error to get the right time, but is very re-usable. you can also use unflavored deer corn/feed corn if you don't have rice. it helps bring blood and goo to the owie parts that help heal them and such. and, unlike a standard heat pad if you fall asleep w/ it it just gets cold.

Ach, your poor back. Apologies for any assaulting tanukihugs.

You had a birthday; so did I. I tend to lose track of the fact that we are only two days apart.

Congratulations, etc.
