Unrelated Paragraphs
I had a delicious dinner last night, and some good company. Nice way to spend a Friday evening!

I am always cold. Sometimes when I am feeling particularly cold at work, I find myself surfing the internet, looking for things to keep me warm. So far I have ordered myself a car seat heater (you just plug it into your cigarette lighter and it warms up your legs and back!), and some silk long-underwear. I tried out the car seat heater this week, and I discovered that my cigarette lighter doesn't work! Darn it. But then I tried it in my second lighter outlet, and it did an excellent job of warming my behind. ahh...quite nice. I just received the long-underwear today, so I don't know how well it works yet. Hopefully next week I'll be feeling warmer.

I am going to one of those trendy pajama parties tomorrow evening. Should be fun! Maybe I'll wear my new long-underwear.

I went dancing on Thursday night, and had a great time. It was especially nice because I didn't have to work on Friday, so I could stay out as late as I wanted. We danced until the place closed, then went across the street for a chili-cheese omelet, hash-browns, and honey-toast. Yummy.

I went outside to shovel again today, since it snowed all morning. I got the sidewalk and front walk done, and I was starting my driveway, when my neighbor-across-the-street came by with his snowblower. He made short work of the majority of my driveway while I (fairly unsuccessfully) attacked the packed-down stuff at the beginning. Really nice of him; he saved me a bunch of effort!

Tomorrow morning I am competing. I have to get up early..yuck! Hopefully the competition will go great though, so it will be worth it.

Dancing on Thursday night was fine. I wore my knee-brace, and I was able to dance energetically without hurting myself. Near the end of the evening I found myself sitting and thinking about it. If I can do so much without surgery, why put myself through it? I can dance fine, without anybody but me knowing I'm injured. I can be more athletic than a lot of people, even with this torn ACL. But....my hurt knee was always there though, in the back of my mind. It hurt, just a little bit, doing lots of stuff. There were also lots of times when I could feel its instability, that there were certain things I must not do without causing serious damage. I knew that it wasn't right, and I couldn't just dance freely without constantly guarding it and being careful. I don't want to live the rest of my life guarding it and fearing for it. (On the other hand, I don't want to go through painful surgery and then months of rehabilitation either. But I guess that's the better of the two options, in the end....)

trendy pajama party? I'm not very trendy, so this is the first I've heard of this, but it sounds fascinating, and vaguely. . . I don't know. Something that rich people might have done a century ago, if pajama parties were socially acceptable.

I'm wearing long underwear right now (not silk, though). :) I love long underwear--even though mine used to be my brother's, so it's guy's underwear and is all strange at the crotch XD nonethless, it saved my life at the Old Bethpage night openings!

The nice thing about silk long underwear is that it is very thin and can be worn under any other kind of clothing. I like it!

I looooooove silk long underwear. When I was at school in Wisconsin, I just about lived in my silk long underwear. The beauty is that they're so thin that they're very easy to wear under most pants. Which is nice.
