I found out this week that an unfortunate fall off a megareformer early August resulted in two complete tears of tendons in the rotator cuff. Surgery is the only option.
I have been down to one arm for about 2 weeks now, although I can type and am allowed to lift only things “not heavier than a coffee cup.” The sling is great if you don’t like having skin on your neck.
I think I need to invent a new comfortable sling based on this experience.
Surgery updates to come.
It’s been a few years since all my fun with double ACL replacements (on the same freaking knee), so I felt like I was home free…ugh.
Sometimes the simplest meals are the best. A simple 6 hour marinade made this grilled tri tip so flavorful – the fat cap doesn’t hurt either

I recently decided to create some political “flair” on Facebook. For those of you who do not know what flair is – its basically a “button” (like something you might wear) with a picture or message. Other users on Facebook can browse a directory and pick various pieces of flair and they can also “share flair” with other friends on Facebook.
So last Friday, a few hours after getting home from New Mexico and absorbing the mind-blowing idiocy of the Republican Party, I decided to create a piece of flair:
Within a few hours a few hundred people had picked it up. Less than a week later, over 7000 people had shared the flair with other users. I was pretty surprised by how popular this rather primitive graphic was – people must feel really strongly about the ticket!
I created a new flair today as another mockery of this mindless ticket:
Wonder how this little gem will do? Unfortunately some crazy right wingers might actually pick it up and think it’s serious. Yikes!
