I miss my livejournal. myspace is annoying and never working. today i'm mourning the death of my ankle. went to the orthopedic guy yesterday afternoon, three hours in the waiting room and 15 minutes in the exam room to look at my x-rays and tell me there's nothing anyone can do about my "athletic ankles" and i should just give up volleyball and running and take up swimming. are you kidding? that is wrong on so many levels not the least of which being that having not run in a month a bathing suit is the last thing i want to be anywhere near right now. ugh. so my options are to take up swimming or continue hurting i gotta say im leaning toward the pain. at least he said it was impossible for me to do more damage - thats a plus right?
on a completely different note (yet still mildly whiny) dear mta bus riders, especially you morning folks, no one wants to listen to you fight with your boyfriend at 8 am. if i wanted to listen to that i'd get my own boyfriend to fight with. where oh where is the crotchety old man who yells at bus cell phone users when you need him??? or maybe i am the only one he ever yells at? he is a repeat player in the story of my life, although admittedly (and thank god) a bit part every time i get a call on the bus (all two times its happened where i had to pick it up because ironically enough i hate when people talk on cell phones on the bus)he's there, yelling at me to shut up. ms. angry pants breaks up with her boyfriend at top volume...no cranky man. oh well.
work is going well. less crying on the subway home than last summer. i dont know if ive gotten jaded or if the federal system is just a bit less grating than the state. the courthouse is certainly cleaner:) i'm finding this summer to be a lot more academic as well. i think i like that but im not a big fan of being stuck in front of a computer for hours on end. some things are the same though - saw a cocaroach run across the office floor this morning:) love me some public interest jobs:)
i'm hungry, time to go find an apple somewhere...
