Now Back Pain

I managed to pull a muscle in my right upper back last night -- probably in trying to do something without making my hands hurt.

I thought FlashForward was too clean, too organized, but I'll watch it again. CSI had an excellent starting ep, and The Mentalist was like it usually is -- I can take it or leave it.

The dematter came and it requires you to be able to push it about 5mm into the mat and I can't push it at all into the big mats that I wanted it for. It'll be okay for some of the smaller ones. I've had some success with holding the joined part of the big mats and using a size 10 steel crochet hook to loosen the tops.

We're having the annual discussion about the football team's name and yesterday's WashPost had letters to the editor that were pros and cons for Redskins. There was also a letter that suggested they keep the name, but change the logo.

Michael Dirda reviewed Atwood's The Year of the Flood.

And in rural Virginia, a 20-year-old Horrorcore rapper killed his girlfriend, her parents, and her friend. Everybody in the town says it happened because of the Internet. That would be a way to reduce the population.

I took a DVD to the post office and noticed the mailbox flags were down on the way in and got my mail, finding my check, and went back out to deposit it. I think things will be quieter around here until I stop hurting so much or can stop taking so many meds.
