Nice to be up again!

I thought I was going to cry when I heard LJ was down! I have a lot invested in this journal. Maybe I should start backing it up. I don't like the LJ back-up tool, though. I wish there was a tool that'd extract it to RTF, Word, txt or some other such format. Maybe I'll program one... NOT! Anyone who asks me to program anything other than Html, will probably get laughed off. I spent way way too much time trying to find the integer with the most non-remainder producing devisors. Nesting loops my foot! I never want to see one of those cursed things again! You were all spared from a lot of words like the following "&*@%$#*^%&*!!!" only because LJ was down.
In other news, the orthodics are doing pretty well. I'm afraid to be optomistic, but they don't hurt, and the swelling seems to reduce while I wear them.
I'm starting to be able to see through this pain. I still wish the pain would decrease enough for me to get a nice night's sleep. What frustrates me is I don't know what my life's going to be like. Will I need orthodics forever? Will the pain ever decrease enough for me to not need meds to get more than half a night's sleep? What's the chance of me re-injuring it? Should I be doing more to strengthen it? Should I be icing it? Heating it? Elevating it? Running it through a blender? No, I'm not serious about the last one, though sometimes I wonder.
There were dogs at school on Friday. I guess for an agg class. It was interesting because they provided some dog distractions, which Julio does well with. Julio didn't do as well with the cafeteria. But hey, that's life. And I'm not going to complain about it too much... At least not in this entry.
I finally changed JAWS to say Julio's name correctly (with the h sound.) I've had my BrailleNote doing it since I got him. Shows you where my priorities are doesn't it?
It looks like I'm going to get to go to breakfast with a friend tomorrow which will be nice. And I went to lunch with a friend today. That was fun. In other news, yesterday a friend got married. I fully intend to stay single, but if I ever get married, I want a wedding like hers. It was clear she and her husband put God first in their wedding and in their reception. I saw some friends I haven't seen in a while which was nice. I got the usual junk about "Look how tall you've gotten." What I didn't do was say "Yeah, are you surprised they can pile crap up this high?" That's what Dad always says if he hears them.
They had white grape juice that sparkled, which I love! That stuff is so good.
I REALLY REALLY need to remember to download the Jaws 6 upgrade. That's the end of the upgrades I'm authorized for.
Oh, and Julio love sappy love songs. Can't remember if I explained that before.
