I was leaving my last class and one of the professors requires his class to sign out right? Well, i sit at the second row from the bottom (big theater style seatng classroom). People were crowding the stairs to get to the sign out sheet. I was able to slid through to get to the other side only to have my good knee catch hard on an armrest. I somehow skinned it through my jeans. Naughty words were said at this point. It still hurts.

Brighter side of things, remember that ppaper i stayed up till 4am working on? got an A on it with a "good job" message.

Sorry for the double post, but this needs its own.

Imagin, going into your bedroom at 12am, turning on the lap (aka only light sorce in the room) so that you could start folding clothes for a trip tommorow. When, all of a sudden, you're buzzed by one ticked off wasp. My guess is that it was hiding in the lamp. It got ticked off and started buzzing around the room and it landed high up on the wall (far out of reach). As i gathered my courage, it decided to buzz the lamp, only to get even more ticked off and finally falling to the ground, where i then delt with it.

Fine, okay.... its over with. Becuase i had to use a spray to deal with it, my room's window had to be opened up, and there in the window seal, i find the body of #7.

I wanna cry... I am so sick of this.

Oh and my knee is now a nice blue and purple color.

Burnt umber? Raw sienna? These somehow sound too appealing... . . . .... ...Puce?


Wolfie, this wasp situation is crazy... .. :angry: ... ..there must be a nest nearby. Are you on a high floor?

Yep, sounds like a nest to me. Had one in my last house. Used to get big fat lazy ones come in this time of year. They love eaves and attics.

One for building services I think. I think we paid someone to deal with it.

Yep, and there is nothing i can do because A: its probably in the vault of my room where i cannot see. You would need one of those really big ladders to get up there. Or B: its somewhere in the hallway. All i can do now is notify housing about it. -sigh-

At any rate, my knees are acheing. I've been overcompensating with my bad knee (my left) because of the incident with my right (which is a lovely shade of red, black and blueish purple). Its an endless cycle. I'm going to have the doctor re-examine my knees again. Its been... 4 or 5 years since its been done last. While i've lost quite a bit of weight since then, it hasn't really helped all that much. Any ideas on what i should ask?

Just a thought, I used to have knee problems and I eventually found I had pronation (sp?) in my feet. That is dropped arches or flat feet. You can get shaped inserts to help support them.

I am still susceptible, and I know what you mean about moving the problem round :(

The other thing I did was swimming and cycling to build up the muscles above my knees

Good luck x

Yesterday afternoon, we had the vehicle looked at for the parking brake problem. A couple of seized parts needed to be freed up, but I was less than pleased at how they went about dealing with me. The guy said we'll know in twenty minutes. We'll wait, we said. Fifty-five minutes later, I inquire, and they still aren't ready. Then they want to sell me expensive work that had nothing to do with the problem I asked them to look at initially. No sale, guys! I'll pay the laboUr charge to free up the sticking parts, but don't expect to see me again.

This morning, Tony the appliance guy found a simple problem with our stove, and replaced a defective wire. So, the harvest gold stove lives another day. This calls for home-baked pizza tonight.
