aph-SuFin (My Art) 2

OW...

I REALLY aggravated my Sciatica so badly Friday what with running around *AND* schlepping Rick’s belongings that even 2 full days somewhat resting it's no better, today going into work, I trip up the stairs (I just caught my shoe on the runner carpet on the landing, I didn't fall) I twisted funny though, making my already painful right hip, excruciating.

I had to leave work, I couldn't sit in my chair straight. They wanted it workman's comp since I tripped on the carpet and I'm like "DUDE, I'm a klutz.... I can see the rug there. My shoe caught it, it's not your fault I didn't lift my foot high enough. Just be aware, and let me go to the bone cracker..." I cannot understand (well I can with sue happy people out there) why they panic.

I will not sue, I like my job, and I'm not dying and I'm not "hurt"... it's a condition I was BORN with (I have a badly curved spine and it is what aggravates the sciatic nerve cluster.) I've just twisted bad, my fault and just letting you know I'm taking the rest of the day to attend to my gimpy-ness....

I found a Chiropractor who specializes in pressure point therapy and immediately went and have just returned from the "crack" job.

It's I'd say about 25% better, I go again before work on Wednesday, hopefully I can get my back adjusted enough where a fifteen minute walk around the grocery store won't send me home crying from the pain (it's literally gotten that bad, I can't walk five minutes before my right butt cheek and hip are crying "CHECK PLEASE!")

He advised putting some ice on it to bring down the inflammation of the muscles in the nerve area, so I am sitting on an ice pack as I type this :PPPPP

Music snob...

For the record... I can usually listen to almost ANY music...

Music being the operative term...

Thrash metal where the "singer" (and I use the term loosely) just screams at you like he's about to puke on his shoes and the only words you understand are the even louder swearing "FUCK YOU!!!" 's is not music. It's good Background music for like horror movies, but to just listen to it?

No, it sucks.

Rap -- good only in small doses really in English, now in Japanese I sit and giggle my ass off entertained... in English I'm not all that concerned about "booty", "big butts", "cop killing" or calling your girlfriend a "ho". O_o I think it's offensive actually 99.99999999% of the time.

I love Bluegrass, and "old" country music, the newer stuff blends into generic current pop sounding canned kareoke with a twang...
I love Rock from the 50's to Current, I love Jpop, Techno, Industrial, Classical, Big Band, Swing, Jazz, Blues, Calumet City Blues.... I like most music... that being said I turn off the radio and go off to write.

Sorry, I just can't listen to that music for extended periods of time, my ears bleed from being screamed at by piss-pour "singers" with attitdues way too big for their "talent".

Sorry Limp Bizket, Gobsmack, etc... fans, they SUCK IMO.... O_o (THey may come out with one or 2 songs I actually LIKE, but generally most of their tunes... ICK)

If I want to be screamed at, I'll throw on AC/DC, Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osbourne, "old skool metal"... because at least the music they scream to actually ROCKS, you have great guitar solos, rockin' drums, kickin bass lines etc... and it's not all distored, over processed digital noise without definition thumping behind the "singer".

I'm such a bitch.
