one of the nasturtium flower buds finally blossomed today. a bright big yellow flower (it looks sort of orange in the photos because of the lighting), it resembled a big pansy. elsewhere, my solitary cardinal climber has started to form flower buds as well.
my copy of wii sports arrived in the mail today. it came in an unassuming brown envelope, the disc packaged in a plain paper sleeve. i played some bowling, some tennis, some baseball, until my left arm started to get a little sore. i only knocked over something from the table just once.
i finally watched the first 2 episodes of the new john adams miniseries on HBO. adams seems to be one of the unsung heroes of the founding fathers. you got your jefferson, your washington, your franklin, even his cousin samuel adams (beermaker) is probably better known than him. the man was the second US president! a local bostonian no less! his son also became president! hopefully the series will add some sex appeal to the life and times of john adams.
health update: i'm scheduled for my MRA saturday morning, but whatever ailed me last week has for the most part disappeared. last night i was feeling underneath my neck, trying to relocate the pain epicenter. i couldn't find it, and not only that, but when i tilt my head it no longer hurts. i don't know whether it just healed itself or has anything to do with the aleve regimen i've been dosing myself with since wednesday. it's still a good idea to get scanned, make sure there's nothing wrong with my arteries.
