And all that you love, and all that you hate, all you distrust, all that you save.
And all that you give, and all that you deal, and all that you buy, beg, borrow or steal.
And all you create, and all you destroy, and all that you do, and all that you say.
All that you eat, and everyone you meet, and all that you slight, and everyone you fight.
And all that is now, and all that is gone, and all that's to come,
and everything under the Sun is in tune
but the Sun is eclipsed by the Moon.

Speedy Update

Quick thoughts and updates:

I have my approval for MRI, will be scheduling that tomorrow. Appointment with Orthopedic Doctor on Monday. Trying Aleve on advice from coworker. So far, hmmm, might work. We'll see how we sleep on it.

The election in MA isn't quite what many people are making it out to be. Especially the talking heads (on both sides). The exit polls and other survey data show a much more complex picture. edited to correct that no exit polls occurred in the MA special election (nod to Cassie for pointing that out)

The day job continues to provide such fun enough that I'm using antacids more (although that could also be with amounts of painkillers I'm taking).

Robert Parker died yesterday. I came late to his works (reading and listening to them for the WIP). Muscular prose and directness. From what is being told he died doing what he loved, at his writing desk.

Also yesterday was E.A. Poe's birthday. I guess the mysterious mourner didn't show.

I hope the Aleve helps and that things start looking up.

Don't take Aleve on an empty stomach or you'll have an ulcer on top of whatever is wrong with your shoulder.

What exit polls? My understanding was that there were none taken.

Elizabeth, it's helping. The MRI is scheduled for tomorrow. With the aleve and only two tylenol I got 4.5 hours of uninterrupted sleep last night (the longest stretch since New Years).

Cassie, here's a TPM story about what they're calling a "survey." Disclaimer, Research 2000 is like a liberal version of Rassmussen, but their survey results (those published in the article) are only about Democrats who voted and didn't vote. Here's a Washington Post article on some of the complexities (also disclaimer, WaPo is also considered a "liberal" newspaper).

But you're right, it wasn't an "exit poll." Updating the post now.
