Hope everyone's everything went well. I have just survived the second of two Christmases, and it looks like I won't need to eat again until after the bar exam.
Just for fun, I put an MRI on my Christmas list, and I got one. But what I didn't expect to get was confirmation that I've herniated the bejeezus out of a disk somewhere down there in my spine. The theory is that there is a small, disgruntled gnome living near the base of my spine, and that once in awhile he comes out and tweaks a nerve, which is why I've been eating Advil sandwiches amd walking around like a 90-year-old for the last four months. So, it looks like I'll be getting surgery.
Upsides: I'll probably get to monkey around with the deadline for the 1st draft of my law review note, Mrs. Andvodka will have to be in charge of the cat box for the forseeable future, and you'll get some awesome post-op, painkiller-induced posts.
Downsides: The scar will probably end my thong modeling career, no more mechanical bull rides, and I'll be posting a lot less in the next twelve days because I absolutely have to finish the script for the law school musical before I go under the knife.
So...yeah. Surgery party at my house toward the end of January. You bring the guacamole, I'll bring the Vicodin.
And Cal still sucks.
