No, not like "Mush, you huskies!," the famous line from movies that include dogsled scenes. (Or what the former senator from Maine said to his family, "Hush, you Muskies!") More like fried mush. Lukewarm fried mush. That's what my brain is like right now. Too many chemicals, I think. No, not the good kind.

My right elbow, I wish it was mush. It's not. It's painful. It somehow developed bursitis. I had some fluid drained from it this morning. It had been big and puffy. Now it's not. But that puffyness had shielded the bone from the pain, so now that it's gone, the pain is flowering every time I touch my elbow to anything harder than air. The lesson, children: Do not rest your elbows on the desk when you're constantly using a computer mouse and keyboard. The point of your elbow is not a pivot point.

So I borrowed the following from vaneramos. There are a lot of cities I haven't been to, so I tried to make it a little interesting by choosing cities with the same names. Don't feel compelled to do this yourselves; it's just my own little weirdness.

Right elbows is not good for guitarists. Depending on your playing style, wrists can be worse, but not always. *nod*

I think my guitar playing is unhindered by the elbow crisis. Even when I'm using a pick, most of the action seems to come from my wrist. A wrist injury, THAT would bother me greatly (mentally especially).

(bad Firefox. Don't log Nergye out!)
