Last night I noticed my forearm and shoulder on my right side felt weird. Not exactly sprained weird but more like heart attack weird - except it was on the wrong side. When I moved my arm a certain way, it was pretty painful.

And it got worse. It woke me up a couple of times last night. I figured it was some fatal something caused by my lack of swimming for the past week and a half (yeah, I made some leaps there).

Work was too busy to worry about it and, fortunately, it didn't hurt to work on the work computer.

Then I got a break. I had to stop work while I waited for a reply from someone. So, as I am wont to when I get some spare minutes, I moved over to this laptop and started playing the casual game I've been playing now for a few weeks.


Yep, you got it. I have injured my arm playing a stupid match 3 game on the stupid computer!!

At least I know the fix.

Regular typing like this does not seem to bother it. Nor does knitting. Probably solitaire or free cell is fine, too. No more Veusvla for me!

But I am going back to the pool on Monday. I've had enough of this dry dock. I'd actually go to my good class tomorrow but I promised (my neighbor) Ann I'd help with the neighborhood cleanup. She helped organize it and made sure that it included out block so I figure one more miss won't kill me.

Monday, for sure, surf will be up and I'll be in it!

I'm still waiting for a work response so I can finish up one job. Then I plan to watch this week's This Week in Google which TiVo has ponied up for me while get started on my next bear.

The baseball game is at 5 tonight. Living on the west coast rocks for many reasons but one of the top on my list is early baseball start times. I remember well those years when I was a Braves fan on the east coast and they would play the Dodgers in a game that started at 10 fucking pm That's no way to live. Honestly.

Ok, I clicked on every single one of these. I am too old for Speak ad Spell but the rest were right in my wheelhouse. Fun.

So all this week and lots of last week I have had nothing to do, really, except a little work and enough time to injure my arm playing a mindless computer game.

Next week, of course, is now beginning to look like two weeks crammed into one. There will be pool time come hell or high water but also... after weeks now, Sheri (the interior designer) finally got a fix for an issue with the new desk. And she's lined up Jeff the carpenter to come fix it and fix the access to the cables under the desk (which was a design idea gone wrong. fixable but you need a saw and I don't have one). She wants to come with him to do that next week.

The boss just booked a 2 hour meeting for the new 401K plan. Fortunately, there's an online attendance option so I don't have to actually go anywhere. That, however, makes 3 work meetings next week which is pretty much 2.5 over my meeting tolerance level.

Tuesday, Chef Anita will be here all day cooking.

And I just got word that the 2nd project is cranking up and will likely be full speed (all the work I want) next week.

I need to find those hatches to batten down!

I rarely get any snail mail but today bought two great treats.

One was a note from my doctor (I have him partially but not totally trained on email) saying that my uric acid levels were way down so the new blood pressure stuff not only replaces 2 pills with 1, cost way less than the 2, reduces my blood pressure more effectively but also now fixes my gout!! Very very nice. I had pretty much guessed it since all my toe pain disappeared shortly after I started taking it but it's very nice that now the doctor is happy, too.

But, even funner, was a hand written note from one of my swim buddies! Madeline was one of the first people who introduced herself to me way back when I first started. She's a very cute retired teacher. At one point another person who had to stop taking the class asked her to get my email address. So I gave Madeline one of my cards that has my name, addresses, phone, etc.

I looked for her before my eye surgery but I kept missing her (she's a gardener so sometimes pool time loses out to garden time). Plus I quit going to the Thursday class. And she's not wild about the Tuesday teacher. So I haven't seen her in maybe 2 months.

She sent a card saying how much they miss me and please won't I come back!! Isn't that the cutest?! She also included her phone number. I'm guessing she's out in the garden cause I got her machine.

I'll try her again later. But so fun to have my own little Sally Fields moment.

I was just listening to a real radio station and when they played a song I didn't like, I went to look for the thumbs down button so it would skip to the next one ....  Me thinks I've been Pandoring a bit too much.

Many of the Bears of May are from the yarn that +Dave Bennett sent to me.  The Red bears are and the white ones and the green ones and that green and brown one and the turquoise one...  Ok so MOST of these are thanks to Dave... Thank you, Dave!!

I almost always use my phone for pictures. The shots get automagically uploaded to Google+ and I upload them myself to Flickr. I've never gotten used to Picasa's (G+)'s organization so I still send to Flickr.

Also for no good reason, I mostly use Flickr for LJ and Picasa for G+.

BUT... Google bought Picnic and their replacement editing software isn't nearly as good. So my G+ photos end up turning out much better than my Flickr ones... I probably see a change to my process in the future.

The other day I took a bunch of pictures of the May group shot. I uploaded what I thought were the best ones. I enhanced the best of those. I ended up totally using the wrong photo! I rearranged the bears mid shoot because one was hiding.

One of my G+ friends asked the monthly shot which I'd forgotten to post to G+. I went to get one of them and happened to count - since the total was of such interest here... I counted 18!! not the 17!! Here's the all-bear version. Below it is the old version with the hidden bear.

May bears

And... whoa! I just used the new add image function of LJ and it makes using photos from G+ much easier. Hmmmmm

I just found this and love it. Simple and works perfectly. Now my pictures go to G+ and Flickr automagically and then I can pick how I want to use them from where later.  Kewel.

A no hitter is a lot easier to feel good about when it's not against the Mariners.  Just sayin'
