There is an experimental treatment for tendonosis called "prolotherapy" which actually induces inflammation to speed the natural healing process up, but apparently the best treatment is to exercise the muscles in "braking" motions, not stretch, not use anti-inflammatories (instead using painkillers like acetaminophen) to mitigate the pain, and not do the things which cause damage for a month or more. Argh.

So I bought a whole bunch of chocolate-covered espresso beans (which I'm already way too high on), a case of Red Bull, a really nice restaurant-quality (meaning, well-made, but inexpensive) santoku, some blackcurrant syrup, some soymilk, and four avocadoes. I also found out that the exact same seedless baby watermelons I paid $2.50 for one of at Ballard Market the other day was only 95 cents at Cash And Carry.

This decision was somewhat inspired by reading John K's weblog. I was thinking too hard about how Cherry and Jen keep on going off-model when I do draw them, and then John K has a whole bunch of rants about how one-offs and evolving characters work a lot better (with plenty of concrete evidence showing how this is true).
