The Today Show had a couple of the Olympic fencers on this morning (Zagunis and Thompson?, women's saber). It made me wistful. I haven't fenced since the Great Neck Fusing Scare of 2006.*

At the time, my physical therapist didn't seem to think it was a good idea for me to let people hit me over the head. Plus she wasn't all that certain that my mask wasn't too heavy for me. Anyhow, it probably wouldn't be wise to go back to saber (which is where all the head-whacking occurs), although foil is still a posibility.

Now if I could just sell something big.

Let's see. Fencing, 50$ a month. Sales....well, haven't had anything since April....

Pretty much makes the math clear.

*In 2006, an MRI revealed 3 herniated discs in my neck. Supposedly, I was in excruciating pain, and the neurosurgeon wanted to fuse 3 vertebrae in my neck immediately (and the fourth would occur at some point down the road). The chiroproactor wouldn't take me as a patient. I finally found a neurosurgeon who was willing to listen to me....who recommended putting off the surgery as long as humanly possible. This is now the plan...
