Maybe the best $10 I ever spent. The perfect doggy pacifier. And, he can't eat it. The frisbee lasted about 10 minutes, and was soon being ingested before he could learn to run and catch it. Current Mood: pleased

To John Foster for showing up for brunch and making my 40+-mile round trip worthwhile. And, to Mother Nature, for a little rain.
Stopped to get a couple of ant guards for two of my hummingbird feeders and couldn't resist getting yet another banana tree for the backyard. Also had to pick up doggie treats at Petsmart.
Now it's off to the Herbicile for more July 4th weekend cookout goodness and True Blood. Current Mood: relaxed

The other two bought the proverbial ladybug farm. But I have a new one that just landed on my desk. Current Mood: entomological

|Busy day, busy evening...
Laundry done, shopping done, desk chair bought and assembled, apartment vacuumed.
Watching the ball game. Then it's off to Hexxt...
Brunch tomorrow at 2pm at Apres Diem. Current Mood: relaxed

To everyone who has commented to wish me well thusfar. I certainly appreciate it... Current Mood: thankful
|Verdict is in..."acute pre-patellar bursitis"
Went to the orthopedic surgeon this afternoon, and he was unable to draw out much fluid from the knee. Believe you me, this little procedure was no walk in the park...."nuff said. It seems it is mostly congealed blood that will not come out in a syringe. So...I have to treat my knee with hot compresses four times a day for thirty minutes in order to break down the fluid and swelling. I will be outta work for at least a week. And I'll probably not be doing much of anything in the meantime except...
Apres Diem tonight at 9pm. Please join us. I'm going to need to get outta the house in anticipation of spending a lot of time there for the next week. And it's probably the only place I'll be able to go (along with Sunday brunch) where I won't have to stand for any length of time. So, please stop by, as I need a bit of cheering up.
I'll probably have to miss Twinkledome, too...which really pisses me off.
Hope to see some o' ya tonight...I'll be the bald guy in the high-tech, and not-very stylish thigh to ankle leg brace. Current Mood: depressed

|Okay...Gotta type fast.
Just got home from 4+ hours at Dekalb Med Center emergency. I developed a huge swelling on my left knee, just below the kneecap, this afternoon at work. By the time I got home I had a balloon of fluid on my knee , so I went to the hospital. After a couple hours at the hospital I was in serious pain. And the technician was unable to draw off any of the fluid...just a couple drops of blood came out in the syringe. I will be seeing an orthopedic surgeon first thing in the morning to get the knee drained. And, in the meantime, I'm in an ace bandage and knee immobilizer brace with three prescriptions to take...one of which is hydrochodone...which I just took. Hence my need to type fast, finish this up and get my ass in bed.
Later... Current Mood: woozy

|Ahhh...A four-day weekend!
We'll be meeting at Apres Diem at 9pm...Unless you're going to screen on the green and sitting in sweltering humidity and humanity to watch a movie you can see on cable about any week o' the year...But, I digress. Some of us will be at Apres Diem at 9pm. Then I, for one, will be heading to the Contour Magazine soiree. And, for those attending 80's night, the password is: GHOSTBUSTERS.
Leaving at 6am in the morning for the "wilds" of North Carolina. Returning late Monday afternoon.
If I don't see you somewhere this evening, Have a safe and enjoyable holiday weekend. Current Mood: happy
We meet at 9pm. Please join us, unless you are going to screen on the green. In which case you'll probably be getting my parking place...hehe.
Later I'll be venturing over to the Contour Mag party.
In any case, the holiday weekend starts at 5pm for me...But first, to work. Current Mood: rushed

|4th of July Weekend...
I'll be in North Carolina visiting the familial units...and getting some much-needed R&R. Leaving early Friday morning and returning late Monday afternoon. Current Mood: calm
|"Don't it always seem to go..."
"That you don't know what you got 'til it's gone."
Um...I'm very concerned about the future of Sunday brunch. Attendance has been very low the past several weeks. See, they reserve the large table in the lounge at Apres Diem for us every Sunday at 2pm. And they've been doing this for...well...years, now. But, I'm concerned how long they'll continue to reserve a table with a capacity of six to eight people, when only three are showing up each week.
Please give this some thought, and get back to me on it... Current Mood: concerned

So, tonight we'll be meeting at Apres Diem at 9pm. And then I'll be heading over to 80's night...Someone post the password, please...Thanks.
Now, off to work. Current Mood: awake

Thanks to everyone who made it over to The Big House(tm) last evening. I can't speak for anyone else, but I had a great time. And if, for any number of reasons, you missed it, please join us for the next one...
