SIlver lining Fridays

So, a follow-up to my Wednesday whinge.  As my friend Zoltar (linking because his podcasts are essential for hard pool/arc-trainer workouts) says, "every thorn has its rose."

Exhibit a:

Works fantastic for running cold water down my shin.  The groundwater's near freezing right now, so I just stand in the tub, with laptop on nearby shelf, and happily work away while the water shooting out of the pipe soaks my shin.  I can do contrast bathing too -- just change to hot water.

exhibit b:

My loaner car ended up being a Prius.  Which I really liked.  And when I got my car back today, the interior was the cleanest it has ever been.

exhibit c:

I have a great deal of pride in my hometown, and am happy to contribute at any opportunity.

(ok, I'm reaching)

exhibit d:

I did get the second sock.  Like the first, it is also hot pink.  I'm wearing hot pink compression socks.  There really is no silver lining here -- I looked inside the socks, and the interior is that same offensive shocking pink.

I got nuthing here.  But 3 out of 4 is still win.


  1. I think hot pink socks are amazing!

  2. we are sock twins. i'm sure that thrills you.

  3. I have those shocking pink socks! we can be twins, awwww, how cute! lol

  4. I noticed your hot pink socks this morning. They're hot!

  5. I love the idea of you in hot pink!!! :-) LOL. Sorry about the car. Did they take anything?
