announcing, fretting

I went public! Like the highly anticipated day that facebook was going to go public, and everyone was waiting for it to either make gazillions of dollars, or go broke. Just like that. My little wordpress blog going public is exactly like a $40 bn company. 

No worries, I didn’t get married today, like my counterpart, mr. zuckerberg did on the day his little blog went public. 

I did have a banana muffin, which is close.

Will my writing style change now that people might see it? doubtful. I think the only difference will be my attention to capitalizing the i. I’m a total slacker on that front, and it’s just sloppy. Sloppy personal pronouns are the worst kind.

On to the 2nd verb. I’m going to try to run tonight – the first day my back isn’t screaming for me to have that nice man crack all the bones. 

Hills with the men of fast seems improbable, but I like the idea of trying to follow their tracks, and learning the water tower hill thing. Maybe we could work out a breadcrumb thing, and I could be Gretel (but you could still call me al). The mental image just shifted to the men of fast dropping pieces of food, and me, instead of following them to the hill of repeat, end up just walking through the woods, eating bread.


twinging, longing, berating

I lift things and put them back down. I mean, I do a lot of other things, but primarily, in the summer, when working at various races, or volunteering, I lift things and put them back down. Repeatedly. 

I did that this weekend. I lifted a bin. Not a new thing. The new thing was this slight twinge. That moment of recognition of the phrase: “lift with your knees, not with your back”, and I had just clearly lifted with my back.

Fast forward 2 days, or gruntingly, advil ladenly watch them inch by, as I try a new way to be comfortable, or walk. Who knew lifting a water bottle to my lips used muscles in my back?

Sunday morning I convinced myself I could go for a run, but it didn’t happen. 

Working disruptively today, as i need to stand up every few minutes.
