I was gonna do the usual drunken food post for the holidays as well as my usual pessimistic prediction post for the New Year but it's been a tough holiday in the Dagoski household. While squatting in the neighborhood of 250 lbs, I discovered that some doofus removed a safety bar in the squat cage. That meant when I ran out of juice on the last rep, I couldn't dump the bar and save myself. I managed to power up the bar to rack. I then admonished a doofus that safety bars are not to be used for Good Morning exercises. I compounded injury with self inflicted insult by doing my usual Dead Lift the next day. So I spent much of the past week in agony from some manner of torn muscle. I can finally walk like homo habilis now and am up to doing something besides laying flat on my back and groaning. With any luck you'll get some posts soon. I have something a promise to post a recipe for dish that's been getting rave reviews. I may post some weird stuff about modeling of social systems. Oh, and I might even do some more strange memoir writing.
