In no apparent order:
- I hyperextended my right thumb yesterday at rehearsal. It’s a bad idea to catch a triple rifle toss with the flat of your thumb. Just in case you were wondering. Anyway, it hurt a ton right when it happened and then seemed to calm down a bit, but today it seems like I have to use the thumb for everything and it’s just gotten progressively more painful throughout the day. At lunch I went looking for one of those thumb brace things but couldn’t find one; I may stop at the drugstore on the way home. Also, I just called my mom to whine a bit about the thumb and she said, “Well, did you at least impress them with the toss?” I said yes, and she said it was worth the injury then. My mom is awesome, and completely used to the attitudes that go along with guard after years and years of hearing about it.
Side note: I really wanted to order Invisible Touch because I am also a 1986-addicted power pop freakazoid nerd, but BMG doesn’t carry it. I might go to Target or Best Buy today and get it. I’ve got a weird jones for Genesis lately, and I know how people feel about the Phil Collins years, and it might damage my alleged street cred quite a bit to say this but if loving Genesis is wrong then I don’t want to be right. So there.
I cannot believe it’s September.
I also cannot believe that I can actually find my desk blotter today. That’s practically immaculate, considering the normal state of my desk. Cool.
