You know how when you were a kid, you’d have a friend or someone who had broken a leg, or sprained an ankle, and they had to walk around with crutches? You’d ask them if you could try them out, and you wished a little to yourself that you could have cool crutches. Well, one day that will come back to haunt you.
Today it got me in the form of a strained tendon in my left foot. I was doing something like this, only it turned out something more like this. Well, my mistake was a little more graceful, but a lot less kind to my foot. So now I’m on crutches for “5 to 7 days” according to the doctor. This’ll be fun. Can’t wait till they start picking on me at work.
On a completely other note, I had posted before about switching from Netflix to the Blockbuster Total Access Plan. So now that we’ve had it for a while, I have to say, I like it. I have a Blockbuster near by, so it’s really great. I pay for the two movies in the mail, and I get two free when I return them through the store, yeah yeah, everybody knows that. But as far as I can tell, you can get away with almost anything on this plan. Last week Strangers on a Train was like, 4 days late, so I reported it missing. Today I got two copies of it in the mail. I already had one free rental from the Blockbuster store out, but when I took the two, same movie, into the store, I got two more movies for free, and didn’t even have to bring back the other one that I had out. So today in Total, I had five movies from Blockbuster. Call me crazy, but I like this thing.
