Deceitful Bliss

Little did I know, injuries give you a deceitful sense of bliss in the midst of pain. Or maybe I should say...injuries cause you to look forward to simple things because you have a delusional fantasy that said thing will ease your pain and make you feel like you're back to normal.
I was okay with that on Saturday when I chose to go grocery shopping with Tyler and use this little contraption.

I will admit that this cart is probably one of the coolest parts of being temporarily disabled. I was able to scoot my way around the aisles like a ninja (comparatively...I suppose it would be more like a disabled ninja or a ninja in slow motion, but it felt like light speed compared to my normal turtle-like rate of movement). This cart is also conveniently a chair, so I'll go ahead and give you my rating of it, too. It definitely has the eye-catching feature of electricity attached to the seat which automatically gives it a head start as a chair. The seat itself is padded but sort of in an awkward shape, almost feels like a drum throne that looks really cool but is kinda old and worn down. Anybody know what I mean? Or like a piano bench that sort of makes your skin stick to it. Not really the greatest. Oh, also kinda like the new "leather" seats in the dollar theater at Woodbridge. In any case, you get my drift. Not the greatest. Nevertheless it made my day much brighter and will receive a 3.9. I cannot bear to give it a 4.

Also in choir today we had our rare but sweet tradition of massages during warm-ups. Faith's massage duties were a little bit harder for her than normal seeing as the guy next to her is a good foot and a half taller than her. Still, she made it work. What a trooper.

Tiny Tim Reincarnated

Well, after spraining my ankle yesterday...Tyler has graciously referred to me as Tiny Tim countless times. Who would've thought a sprained ankle could inconvenience me so much. Thankfully it's my left foot, so I can drive, and I suddenly have three time the amount of friends than I normally would....but hey, I'm not complaining. It's hard to open doors with crutches. And now the rest of my body is getting a great work out because the inability to use one leg suddenly spurs on every other muscle to work extra hard. Also my armpits hurt like no other.
While I was in the ER waiting for my x-ray results, I kept quoting Brian Regan to my mom, and dad texted me with quotes from "Charlie Bit Me" like..."that really hurt....and it's still...hurting..."
Here's a picture, and then I'll leave this topic to rest.

Also, Tyler, Tavani, Faith and I had a great Labor Day weekend of fun and frivolity, of course involving videos with the Flip, so here's an episode of raspberry catching.

And finally, a long awaited chair update. :)
Below is a picture of me on a bar stool at the Red Robin in the Spectrum.

Bailey and I went there to get shakes to go a bit ago...and let me just tell you bar stools are the best. They're tall enough so they make you feel powerful, and they have little bar things to rest your feet so you feel comfortable. The padding is clearly not that great, which is definitely a downfall, but it's cool. Red Robin is definitely one of the coolest places of all time, and with a Rookie Magic shake, I felt like I was on top of the world. That being said, I give this bar stool a 4. In order to get a 5, it would have had to have some cushioning. Also, keep in mind I sat there for a grand total of 7 minutes tops. My opinion may have changed had I sat there longer.

Get some tissues.

Well, don't get your panties all up in a bunch just cause I haven't updated for a couple weeks - school started and life has launched back into its hectic routine. I have a few pictures/videos to catch you up on in regards to my chair blog, but at the moment I haven't the time to enlighten you with them all. Therefore I must simply give you this: a video of a few dogs in a car next to Faith and I as we drove to get some boba.
Take a look at these little beauties.
