verbal constipation

i think i binge and purge when it comes to words. in the last few weeks i finished my third and fourth chuck palahniuk books and two anne lamott books. now i'm hoping i can spew my own words out for all to read. i don't know how soon i'll post short stories here, but i'm going to start writing every day and working on really crappy first drafts. i don't have much else to say. i leave for san francisco monday afternoon to help chaperone a mission trip. and i'm done teaching first graders. good news all around, really. i wish that i were better about updating this, hopefully i come back soon.

my ear hurts so very much right now.

the pain is absolutely excruciating.

really, this is probably the worst pain i have felt in quite some time. i would suggest that the last time i felt pain that hurt this much was when i thought i broke my leg sophomore year playing soccer.

it feels like i'm trying to pass my bass amp through my ear...while someone is playing really crappy loud bass through it.

webmd just told me that i need to contact a health professional immediately. sure, with no insurance. i'm right on it.

hopefully i can fall asleep tonight.
