Cycled to a second-hand store today. Unfortunately there wasn't much that I was interested in, went home with a Worst Witch book.

Oh trust me, I am a lot more scared now, especially when I have to turn. Plus my foot is not yet strong enough to brake, or to catch a fall.

Went to the hospital again, this time by bicycle. The weather fortunately was very pleasant.
The doctor didn't carry out much of an investigation, he looked at the same X-ray from two weeks ago and asked me how my foot was doing. I took of my sock and shoe and demonstrated it. He told me to come back in two months, for another X-ray, and then they'll see if the pins need to be taken out. It's possible that the one on the end becomes irritating.

He also tells me that, once the swelling disappears, I can feel the screws on my fibula. (shiver)

So, how do people with screws in their bones get through airport security?

I learned a way to give someone the finger online. I'm going to try it out here.

Looking good, Feetzis!

Poly: Actually airport security is in general used to people with iron, and according to one of the home helps I've had over here, it will be no problem at all.

However, metal detectors can get tricky. Another home help told me of her friend, a girl, who also has pins. She went to a festival. Security there pulled her out, but in spite of the metal there, they did use a full body search. "Sorry ma'am, we have to check the contents of your bra first!"

To me, probably...

A couple months ago, we bought this absolutely hideous food processor thingie. It looks like it was designed by the Taliban as a torture device.

Sooner or later someone was gonna get it. It's probably good that it was me.

It took a nice chunk of my left pinkie, and about enough blood to do a lipid panel.

I threw the food processor in the garbage, which in retrospect wasn't such a great idea. About the safest way to get rid of something like that is to throw it into a volcano...

Thanks of reminding it. I cannot help it that my finger is sometimes a little longer than the rest piece of the cucumber to be spliced.
I also have a quarrel with the modern Philips coffeemakers who act sometimes like a spitting lama.

I'm in the middle of a vacation from college. I'm just starting to feel human again. Yesterday I actually found time to play some sax.

Aw that's nice!
Tomorrow it's DED's birthday, so I went present shopping. It was great to be in the shopping precinct again after such a long time!

I also had physiotherapy again. My therapist is a friendly young fellow, around 30. He moved and pushed my foot around today and gave me some exercises.

And I'm making preparations for the hazelnut cake I'm going to bake tomorrow.

Last night I felt the Earth move. Literally. Soon after 11:00PM (+9.5) I was studying away in my studio when I suddenly experienced about 3 seconds of vibration that rumbled through the whole room and resonated through my body and as I stood up I felt a momentary loss of control that I don't want to feel again soon. It turns out that it was an earthquake rated at 3.8, which is significant but not that big. No damage has yet been reported. Puts things into perspective.

Yeah, a 3.8 isn't exactly big, but it's nothing to sneeze at. And when it's happening, you don't know it's a 3.8. For all you know it's going to last for five minutes and be a 9.2.

And I bet you have a better appreciation of Relativity now. That was surely the longest three seconds you've experienced in quite some time...

Indeed MTF, that's what I meant by the loss of control thing, that once you're aware it's started, because it kind of swells up on you, don't know how bad it will get. Then all of a sudden it's over and it's a bit of an anti climax. Although, I'll never forget the awesomeness of that feeling.

Adelaide has experienced only three largish earthquakes in 120 years and the worst was 6.5.

I experienced an earthquake too in Greece (about 4.5)
When you experienced it once, you directly recognize a next quake. My second was in Holland It is a bad experience.
