Went to the doc...

about my ankle... they shot me.

Guess it was worse than I thought, eh?

Heh, it was just a steroid shot to help speed medicine to counteract the swelling in the ankle. You know where they shot me, of course, and that made walking (and sitting and pretty much existing) even more difficult over the next hour or so than the ankle had been.

They also gave me a prescription for an anti-inflammatory, which has been making my stomach upset for the last 24 hours or so (despite my having taken it with food as recommended). Actually, the first dose didn't, but the next few have (tonight's wasn't at first, but is starting to, I think). But at least the ankle's not broken (at least it didn't appear that way on the X-ray image).

So, I've been working on some new music (not anything newer on my music page, yet, though), and have also been thinking about how great some music is with good horn parts. (I play sax, among other things, mind you, so I like good horn parts!) For instance:

That's Stevie Wonder with the song "Superstition" performed on Sesame Street. Pretty cool. I may have to post links to some of the Alice Cooper on the Muppet Show videos from YouTube next article. Anyway, maybe I should put some good horn parts in my music! If you care, here are a few things I'm working on (that will hopefully be making their way onto the music page before too long):
  • My Baby's Smile (yes, written to my lovely wife, who happens to be the only girl I've ever really kissed (you know, a romantic-type kiss), and my first girlfriend, whose smile makes the world a better place regardless of whatever else might be going on in life)
  • Robot Penguins from Mars
  • a rewrite/parody of a fairly recent song that could be considered controversial... but when I sing it it will be perfectly fine
Wow, I tried to insert my headphones into the jack on the side of my computer (because my daughter was complaining the music was too loud in her room - yep, I'm listening to Stevie on YouTube) - ok, I was only trying to put the plug of the headphones in the jack, not the entire headphones, Dean - and apparently I missed the headphone jack and hit the USB port, 'cause suddenly my computer rebooted itself (and I lost half of this blog post that I'm now rewriting).

So, anyway... how's everything going out there? I haven't had many comments recently... guess you quite reading when I quit posting. Sorry about that. I'll try to be more frequent... maybe I'll even resurrect my other blog (Not-tional Geographic), even though no one ever read that one. :)

Until next time... a topato!
