Well, that was interesting. After a very quiet workday (I was pretty much holding down the fort in the part of the office where I sit) I was still tired enough that I hit the shower as early as I could, hit the hay shortly thereafter, and around 10 PM sat bolt upright with a very nasty tightening in my right calf. It appears the plantar problem may be close to resolving itself. I credit the rolling pin deep tissue work and the epsom salt rub, but who knows? Anyway, the wind is howling and I'm walking (normally) back to bed now, trying not to think about the future (particularly next Tuesday) because, after all, Future CNN (via BoingBoing) has it covered.
