oh hey, I disappeared!
« on: May 23, 2012, 01:29:32 PM »
So I figure most of you noticed I'm nowhere to be found.

Quick explanation: my life went through a MAJOR upheaval in January/February, getting a divorce, etc (please, I'm not sad about this divorce at all, and when it's final on 5/31 I want to be congratulated, not even kidding).  I still have two jobs, and my photography job is really taking off too.

Anyway, that's the past 4 months in a nutshell, but I've been lurking.  Apparently not lurking enough because you guys get in tiffs and there are trolls and then I show up and I'm like......WHAT THE HELL DID I JUST READ?!

Also, I've been terrible about shooting NSH as it's coming down, which is pathetic because I haven't actually gone at all, but I've been working a ridiculous amount. Sorry guys.  I'm trying to keep up with the news and you guys are doing a pretty good job covering it.

Carbon, I think you live like 300 feet from me, not kidding. haha. I've been seeing your pics on facebook and I'm like "GOD that complex looks like the one up the hill" but for some reason I thought you said you lived closer to NSH, like on the other side of the river from where I live.

And I ran into Dakiel a couple weeks ago, which was pretty awesome.

Anyway, I'm still lurking.  Probably won't post much unless I go somewhere.  And I've partially torn my achilles tendon so while I'm waiting for that hot mess to heal, I can't run, so I don't really want to get into a situation where I might have to, LOL.
I hide in the shadows and babble about old things.  I appear to most new members of IB.  I might beat you with my cane.

Jeez Meg, how did you do that to your achilles?  I've had achilles tendonitis a few times and that sucked so I can't imagine how bad tearing that thing is.

Honestly, I don't have a damn clue.  It happened sometime in April, I think it was a minor thing at first but gradually got worse and worse, and the fact I kept injuring it over and over really didn't help.  Might need surgery to repair but I won't find out before my health insurance runs out, so fingers crossed that over the next 4-6 weeks it can heal on its own so long as I don't really wreck the hell out of it.  Definitely need physical therapy.

Are you in a boot to protect it?   When I had achilles tendonitis I got it from running but since I needed to keep running a lot of miles for Boston, the Dr suggested that I run with heel lifts.  It worked so I kept wearing them until it got better,  I got them at CVS for cheap plus with them I picked up a couple inches, haha.

Hahahahaha dude if you walk out your door and take a right and like, walk behind the next set of condos over, look over the stone wall and down the hill, you're looking at my place.  At least I think that's right.  I used to walk through there because I would walk to work some days. 

I haven't delivered your mail since you've been living there, but the possibility to do it is there.  It's on a route I deliver maybe once a year or less--I think the last time I delivered it was a year ago.  I live on a city route so I don't get to deliver my own mail, hahaha

I did see your last posts on NSH!  Don't think I'll be going any time soon due to the foot issue, but maybe I'll be able to make some of the demo days and shoot from the road. I have a KILLER lens.

Chief- not in a boot, have a brace at the moment b/c the first time I went to the Dr. they misdiagnosed as a sprain.  Brace doesn't do much but it does stabilize enough.  I should just put it in a bucket of concrete.

hahaha YES the tennis court is up the hill from my front door.  I can also see it from my bedroom window, lol.  I need to have a party or something. I just learned one of my high school friends lives in the next building over, and then I have a couple friends that live in the big apartment buildings on Henry St.

Yeah, I was pissed I missed Salmon coming down, I think I could have made it that day or I was sick or something stupid happened and I ended up not being able to go, or work, or something.  I knew I'd miss the church and Awl due to working the PO.  That place is driving me insane.
