Today I woke up with a Charley Horse. To many people this is an annoying thing. To me, this is something that seriously freaks me out.

About three summers ago, I tore my Achilles' Tendon. I was jumping in the pool and, as I lept up over the water, I felt something go "pop!" inside my leg. I had a very Wile E. Coyote moment of hovering above the water and thinking "well, what the Hell do I do now?" I hit the water, made my way to the shallow end, got out of the pool and thought "maybe this is just a Charley Horse -- maybe I can just walk it off." Nope. I spent the next month on crutches, being driven to work by my Dad, and feeling like I had a Charley Horse 24/7. Now every time I get a Charley Horse, I think "oh please ... I do not want to go through that again!"

On a complete tangent, for two days now I haven't been able to get the old MC 900ft Jesus song "If I Only Had A Brain" out of my head. I have a copy of it somewhere on a tape that bishopjoey made for me once upon a time -- I should really track that down. The only problem is that the tape deck in my car has been acting hinkey -- I hope it's just because of the unrelenting heat, but I'm not overly optimistic.

Also, that big plan to quit smoking today? Scrapped. I don't feel motivated. I just don't. So, like so many things lately, I've given myself permission to do it in whatever way feels right for me. Maybe tomorrow. Maybe next week. Maybe one of these days.

And thanks to _aqualung_ for another lovely night out. It's good to be reminded that I have friends.

Any time, m'lady! The feeling's mutual. Shall we just make this a weekly get together?

I can give you a tentative yes.

My Wednesday nights may become less free when the weekly movies in Schenley Park start up again -- I enjoy those, although I also often work too late to get there early enough for it to be worthwhile.

Let's call it a weekly get together with confirmation (meaning we expect to do it Wednesday nights, but still check in on Wednesday days just to be sure it's actually happening). Sound good?

That works. I forgot about the movies @ flagstaff.

yr wish remains my command
I'm posting the song in question, and two more by the inestimable either as I write. Might be morning before I have a download link.

Hope your tendon and such improves post haste.

Re: yr wish remains my command
My tendon appears to be fine, thank you very much. I just get really nervous when it acts up is all.

I shall look for your link. Thanks.
