Be there, or be the Beach Boys, after Brian Wilson left.
I have been eating one gelcap of turmeric per day, to fight carpal tunnel syndrome. My arms, wrists, and shoulders have ACTUALLY felt better. Yesterday, I forgot to take it. Today, my right shoulder feels like cardboard that has gotten wet, and then been left out to dry, and then gotten wet again, and then gotten dry again, and now is being used as th floor of a treehouse built for a family of monkeys, who are all jumping up and down on it. It is about to give. All the monkeys will die. Do you think this is all psychosomatic, and the turmeric is just a placebo?
Livejournal Entry of the Week:
Jim considers himself a social misfit, but one man's misfit is another man's Internet friend that I'd like to meet in RL, someday.

Jessica's singing is of a consistently high quality, but she outdoes herself in this cover (via phone post) of a Grandmaster Flash staple. I badly wish I could listen to it now at work, but I have no Winamp here.
23 Then Abraham drew nearer to him and said: "Will you sweep away the innocent with the guilty?
24 Suppose there were fifty innocent people in the city; would you wipe out the place, rather than spare it for the sake of the fifty innocent people within it?
25 Far be it from you to do such a thing, to make the innocent die with the guilty, so that the innocent and the guilty would be treated alike! Should not the judge of all the world act with justice?"
26 The LORD replied, "If I find fifty innocent people in the city of Sodom, I will spare the whole place for their sake."
27 Abraham spoke up again: "See how I am presuming to speak to my Lord, though I am but dust and ashes!
28 What if there are five less than fifty innocent people? Will you destroy the whole city because of those five?" "I will not destroy it," he answered, "if I find forty-five there."
29 But Abraham persisted, saying, "What if only forty are found there?" He replied, "I will forebear doing it for the sake of the forty."
30 Then he said, "Let not my Lord grow impatient if I go on. What if only thirty are found there?" He replied, "I will forebear doing it if I can find but thirty there."
31 Still he went on, "Since I have thus dared to speak to my Lord, what if there are no more than twenty?" "I will not destroy it," he answered, "for the sake of the twenty."
32 But he still persisted: "Please, let not my Lord grow angry if I speak up this last time. What if there are at least ten there?" "For the sake of those ten," he replied, "I will not destroy it."
33 The LORD departed as soon as he had finished speaking with Abraham, and Abraham returned home.
