A lot of people asked me over the New Year's festivities how my knee is doing, and it prompted me to realize that I haven't really said boo on the subject for a while.

First, my brother and I named it "Imanhotep". It has displayed no desires to take over the world, but my surgeon says that it takes a full six months for the graft to be completely integrated in to the knee, so perhaps Imanhotep is just biding its time. It has not yet demanded brains, though there were a few days a while back where it demanded more protein than I normally eat. Luckily, it was satisfied with tofu. It may be the first tofu eating zombie ever.

I'm more sick of stationary biking than words can fully express, since that's currently the only form of cardio that I can do. In about another month, I should get to start jogging. Woo hoo! I did purchase myself some new music, including the Hamster Dance, which is actually totally workout appropriate. Bouncy. Insidious. Cheerful. Between that and the mixes that I have received from some of you, I'm keeping as entertained while biking as possible.

I get pretty bummed out about the whole thing every now and then, and nervous about how ugly the going back to TKD process is going to be. But I'm trying to follow the very simple advise of Mr. M, one of our TKD instructors whose health issues make my knee pale in comparison: Focus on what you can do, not on what you can't.
