Oh My Leg!

This morning I was woken up with an intense pain in my right calf. It was unbearable. It was horrible. It was some kind of cramp from scorned girlfriends past (or maybe future?). I was writhing around in bed hitting my calf with my fist in a vain attempt to beat the pain away. It was difficult to walk in the morning so I called in pain. That’s like calling in sick but different. I’m at work now, a few hours later, and I took advantage of the leg rest time by also getting some everything else rest time.

I can walk okay now but I was too worried to ride my bike, which is sad because it’s a perfect day for it. And I haven’t been getting any exercise in the past 2 weeks because I’ve been too busy drawing. I’ll have to make up for it soon with extra tennis and badminton and drag racing. Oh wait, scratch that last one.

Who’s with me?

Has anyone heard of or seen “Robin’s Big Date” http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0487044/ starring Sam Rockwell as Batman? Clearly, I’m interested.

My last Mandarin class is next week. Yesterday’s class was crazy – I don’t know if it’s from lack of sleep or if the lao shi was going through words and phrases too fast for me to keep up, but I was having a hell of a time following. But nevermind, it’s all written down and I’ve been listening to my language tapes so I’ll be asking for chopsticks in restaurants in no time. Especially Denny’s.

Oh, AND I watched The Thin Man last night and it was great fun! Scratch that from my list.

  1. I think that cramp is called a ‘charlie-horse’. I’ve had them now and again. I think they’re related to sleep paralysis brought on by dreaming (or nightmares). I actually woke up screaming the other night because I thought I was living back at my folks. Plus the house was haunted.

  2. ‘Robin’s Big Date’ is kinda weak. Yes the premise is amusing but to be blunt Rockwell is just doing his ‘I’m a big asshole’ schtick which ends up being kinda painful in this little short. Whereas ‘Batman’ Dead End’ made me go “Holy Crap these guys know what they are doing”…Robin’s Date was pretty well shrugworthy.

  3. I get those terrible cramps occasionally and I’ve read they can be caused by dehydration. Most mornings I get them if I think back to the previous day I didn’t drink enough water so that seems to fit.

    Here’s Robin’s Big Date for you to watch.
