This just in: one of my legs is shorter than the other

I shit you not, people. I went to the chiropractor today and lo and behold, my left leg is shorter than my right. I guess by about 3cm. That seems huge to me, though apparently it’s not THAT bad, like we’re not talking about having to buy two different pairs of shoes…though he told me that I could always go to the cobbler and get a little bit of a sole added to my shoe.


The x-ray was crooked enough that he asked me if I was leaning to one side when he took the x-ray. Oh lord.

Anyway, beyond the fact that I will become a crooked little old lady, the crack-a-lackin’ is pretty good! So far it just feels like I just worked out or something, but I’ve only been once. But that doesn’t mean I have to go back again, and again and AGAIN to fix my spine. Thank goodness for medical coverage!

In other news, I am all over Twitter as of yesterday. I am totally addicted to this shit. I can’t get enough. It’s probably because I am ridin’ the sweet wave of ADD at work, but either way it’s awesome. Here’s a peek into my day:

*I’m pretty sure I had a conversation about Grover from Sesame Street yesterday that I don’t really remember the details of…

*Can’t work, too busy thinking about penning “The Brotherhood of the Traveling Banana Hammocks: Some Hammocks Just Fit Together.”

*Shit guys, there’s only 24 more days till LudaChristmas!

*They’re always talking about hymens on Law & Order. I wish my day involved more discussions about hymens.

*Ben Mulroney I’m gonna cut you.

and so on. I’m trying to figure out how to get a Twitter widget on here, but wordpress doesn’t seem to like my micro-blogging ways. WordPress, I’m gonna cut you after I cut Ben Mulroney.

Another day, another chance to catch a cold…again

That’s right, I haven’t posted because for the third time in maybe two, three months?  I am sick.  AGAIN.  And I never get sick.  Ever since I worked at the hospital I’ve been pretty immune to your basic cold.  Something keeps making me sick here.  The only thing I can attribute it to is someone I work with.  I didn’t get sick at my last job, and that involved a less clean environment, so I don’t understand what’s doing it now!  I take multivitamins, I try to drink lots of water, I get more exercise than last year.  It’s a mystery to me!

Sadly, that effs up my NaPoBloMo, but I’ve been pretty good, so I am going to give myself a break.  Not from blogging, but from feeling bad that I missed a day here and there :0)

Each of these colds have been slightly different, so I’m not sure who they are coming from.  Maybe I’m just allergic to a shitty work situation??  Indeed.

In other news, I went to the chiropractor for the first time today to see if I could help my spine out a bit. My mom used to crack my back when I was little, thus setting me up to have a fucked up back for life. Now I need Steve to squeeze me every so often to get my back to pop (yes, I know this is bad) just to feel better.  I think it’s the desks at this new job?  I sit in a VERY uncomfortable chair that cost probably $10, whereas the bosses sit in $150-$300 chairs.  Naturally.

So apparently upon first look, the entire left side of my body is much more tense, and slightly higher than my right.  Everywhere!  My hips are out of alignment, my shoulders, my arms.  It’s like I’ve been walking on a slant my whole life.  This likely also comes from my mom, because we both like to stand with one leg crossed over the other, with one foot on top of the other.  I shit you not.  This is how I stand the most comfortably.  Go figure.  Anyway, I got some xrays done so I’ll get a nice look at my bones come Tuesday when I go back.  Then maybe we’ll get some poppin’ started!
