I was driving to work yesterday, and thought of a really good blog topic. Of course, by the time I got to work, parked the car, got all of my crap inside the building and got settled in, I forgot what it was. Sorry kiddos. Better luck next time.

In the meantime, here’s a fun wrap-up of what’s new.

  • Ionic therapy. They’ve been doing this interesting treatment on my wrist to help reduce tendon inflammation. It basically consists of placing 2 patches on my arm (one with anti-inflammatory medication over the affected tendon), and connecting the patches to a 9V battery, with what look to be miniature jumper cables. 15 minutes later, I have big red spots where the patches were, blister-like bubbles where the medication is being pushed through my skin, and eventually, less pain. After 5 treatments of this, I’m starting to feel more like a human being. However, the skin on the back of my hand is starting to feel more like a lizard.
  • Anna Nicole. Ok, so its not really news, but I’m starting to wonder how many days that she’s going to be appearing on Google News. Its very tragic that her bizarre and twisted life came to an early demise, and that 4 or 5 men are fighting over her 5-month-old daughter. The best that we can hope for is that the child will be raised out of the spotlight, and will be able to live as normal of a life as possible, having sprung from Anna Nicole.
  • Work. I’ve been at my new job for just over a month and half now. It’s taken some time to get used to just telling other people what needs to be done, rather than just doing it myself. I’m starting to feel like there’s a lot I can learn from this job – and a lot I can bring to it. Oh, and my office got moved – finally. The new location allows me to see a busy intersection in town. Every day I get to see at least 2-3 fire trucks go by, and about twice a week there are ambulances. Its entertaining. We also got a $3500 coffee machine for the office, courtesy of a special bonus that one of the sales teams earned. We all get to partake of the special coffees, teas, and hot chocolate, that come in these super-wastful little packages. But hey, I plan to take full advantage of the machine, especially when the chai comes in!
  • Dating. Oh, why bother? Seriously? Its really true that all you do is watch as strange men try to impress you in weird and stupid ways, and then you pick the least disgusting one. So far, I’m not all that impressed.
  • Dogs. My mom accidentally got a new dog this week. She’s pretty funny – a 5 lb pomeranian with more hair than brains. We’re calling her Foxy Roxy. Her newest trick is to stand across your foot when you’re sitting down. You can actually lift your leg, with her on your foot, and she just hangs out. She’s entertaining. But Pete hates her. We’ll see how long all this lasts.
