Miscellaneous Crap

I am SO glad I saw Dr. Painless this week, even though I didn’t think I needed to.


Because if you walk into PT on a Tuesday morning and say your arm is feeling pretty good (for the first time EVER!!!)  ….

You will be in teeth clenching pain by Tuesday night.

What have I learned from this experience?

•  Keep Dr. Painless in my life forever and never take him for granted.

•  Take drug prescriptions from Dr. Painless and stash the drugs for pain emergencies just like this one, regardless of whether or not I think I’ll end up needing those drugs.

•  Prescription pain meds can’t really touch the pain when my arm goes THIS  bat shit crazy.

•  Next time I see Dr. Painless I need to ask for stronger drugs.

•  Screw that.  I’m going to call him today and ask him for stronger drugs.

•  Writing blog posts while on pain meds doesn’t distract me from the f*cking intensity that lives within my arm/shoulder nerves.

•  Never trust your physical therapist no matter how much he looks like Paul Newman.  (Especially when he gives you fake-innocent-sexy eyes when he makes you unnaturally-bendy causing you to yelp and say “OUCH! OUCH! OUCH!!”)

•  Never tell your physical therapist you’re “doing pretty well this week,” if you want to continue doing pretty well this week.

•  Yes, that means it’s perfectly okay to lie to your PT.

•  It’s also perfecty acceptable to send your physical therapist obscene text messages in all capital letters regardless of the time of  day  night it is.  (After all, it’s his FAULT you are swearing out loud instead of sleeping.)

•  Ahem.

•  On a completely different topic, I received several emails/questions regarding the camera I mentioned pre-ordering in yesterday’s post.  I will do an entire post regarding the camera once I’m using it, but in the meantime  ….

•  The Sony RX1R is what I would consider a “small niche” camera.  It isn’t for everyone.  In fact, it isn’t for MOST people.  (Although, I’m sure Sony would be happy to take everyone’s money.)

•  The RX1R is expected to begin shipping at the end of this month, but I’ve been told orders already exceed initial inbound shipments from Sony.  In other words, I have no idea when I’ll actually be receiving the camera or how long of a wait you might have if you order one.

•  If you’re looking for a small, good, camera to sneak into concerts, I would suggest the Sony NEX7 with a compatible zoom lens.  It would better suit your needs and it’s less expensive.

•  I promise to write some camera/photography posts for you soon.

•  Did I mention – Ouch?!

      Well, the details would bore you but it has to do with my bicep and my very f*cked up bicep tendon. It is the bane of my existence. I wish they made fake ones, so they could replace it. Sadly, they don’t – and I am stuck with it.

      PS I do not like Paul Newman today.
      PPS I’m sure I’ll like him again in a few days??

    Ouch, I’m sorry you hurt so much. I hope your arm calms down soon.

    Do you think this is one of those posts that you really let loose and then feel bad and delete it? You ARE entitled to your feelings. And for those of us who have been reading your blog for years it makes sense that you have your ups and downs and any “normal” (hehehe…) person has to let it out once in a while.

    But hey…you didn’t mention quitting. That’s a plus 🙂

      Thank you. Hopefully I’ll feel better in a few days.

      Feel bad about this post?
      Delete it?

      I don’t *ever* feel bad for writing the truth of a situation. If Paul Newman happens to read this, I imagine he will shake his head and laugh. He’s quite used to me and he KNOWS he hurt me badly, and he KNOWS I’m a mess as a result. For some reason, he finds me, and my personality, amusing. I’m not sure why.

      I’ve only deleted one post ever. I only deleted it because it had come to the attention of some high schoolers my son was attending school with. I didn’t want it to go viral at the high school. It was, however, a great post and I regret deleting it.

        Oops, I guess I said that wrong. I didn’t mean that you deleted a post…long (personal) story, okay? 😀 I’m sorry it came out the wrong way.

        And of course he finds you amusing. Duh!!

    I follow Trey Ratcliffe and have been reading about the NEX-7. It sounds very interesting but it’s not great in low light so that’s a negative that gives me pause.

    • Suzanne

      Trey is the biggest NEX-7 fan I know. : )

      I’ve shot with the NEX7, and it’s a fun camera. I, personally, prefer a full frame. I have no doubt that a full frame, mirrorless, with interchangeable lenses, will come out relatively soon. I’ll hold out for that. The NEX7 is not as good in low light as a Canon 5D, etc., but it is small enough to get past concert security. Would I attempt professional concert photos with it? No. Can an average camera hobbyist use it at a concert and get amatuer shots with it? Yes. (I know many people who have.)
