So let’s celebrate by going through the blogroll and…

Yeah, I’m still bummed. Because of my broken ankle and the “no weight bearing” requirements on it, I can’t participate in Trivia Bowl today.  I also can’t participate in the Patroons’ opening night.  This sucks quail eggs.

Progress report.  I’ve been able to flex my broken ankle and I’ve done some non-weight-bearing exercises with it.  Mostly trying to spell the alphabet with my extended toe, by rotating my foot and ankle to spell the letters.
