My Royal Highness Toe

My big toe has gout, again. I wish they had a better name for it. Gout, while the curse of royalty, is more closely identified as the curse of over indulgence. I kind of wish it had a name that invoked a little more sympathy. It's painful, it deserves more! I get hit once or twice a year. If I attack it early with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, I can usually send it packing. Here's hoping. At least I can still get shoes on and walk. Hopefully it will go away soon.

Last night's baseball game was really kind of amazing. The game itself was pretty cool. I was watching Twitter scroll by as I watched the TV. All of a sudden everyone in my Twitter feed was a baseball fan. It was amazing and fun. And the game was a lovely ending to a pretty spectacular season. The pitcher who got the 'save' - was on the mound for the Cubs when they won - was a guy who played for the Mariners until the middle of the Summer. The Mariners have never played in the World Series at all but at least we're now kind of one degree from it.

So now we wait until Spring training. 3 months. I'll be ready.

This bear got finished during the game:
