... in other news...
I just got back the report from the MRI I did last week, and looks like I have a torn "anterior cruciate" ligament in my knee.  This explains my continuing problem with instability in rotation of that joint, even-though I can walk without the need of a brace.  You just don't think of the complexities of what a joint goes through until you've injured it... I've had to retrain myself on how to get into my car to drive without rotating or angling my left leg.

So now, it's time to see an orthopedist to see what (if anything) can be done for my knee.  Whee.

Meanwhile, I've started a woodworking project: Repurpose an antique typesetter's die drawer into a spice rack (as I have a *lot* of spices, and would like to organize them better than the pile in the cabinet). 

If anyone's curious, I'm keeping a photo journal of it: http://gallery.me.com/khromat#100010

Regarding the knee...

OUCH! May you not need surgery (or if you do, may it be effective and not bankrupting).

Eesh. Well, glad you can at least walk!

The spice rack thing sounds pretty neat. Is it going to take a lot of work to make it usable?

Hope that they can do something for you that isn't too expensive!

Argh though, I hope the orthodude can find something.

The spices must flow. :)

Hiya! It's nice to read updates from you again. I'll try not to be so shy. :)

Yikes. Here's hoping you can get some doable options for the knee.

To be positive, now you can boast having two huge racks! One's just spicier than the other!

Heh...

I don't have a picture of it, but back during my RenFaire days, I re-purposed an military ammo shipping box (a guildmate was the PDX officer at Pendleton) into a useful bench-storage box for Faire...

As folks were admiring the woodwork, I'd lean down onto the bench (think of me in a bodice doing this) and say,

"You like my 44 inch chest?" :)

Re: Heh...

I'm still letting that thought marinate in my mind.... :)
You had me at 'bodice' :)
