I've been in a rotten mood the past couple of days, and there have been some grouchy posts in my Google Reader.

Here is an awesome Friday Pick-Me-Up: Kevin Everett, of the Buffalo Bills, is walking again.


  1. This is great to hear. Not like I'm some expert on paralysis or whatever, but I thought he would walk again from the moment I first read about the injury, even though all the doctors were saying he wouldn't. Granted, they know more than me, but I remember something about him moving his leg or something directly after his injury. I have a friend who was paralyzed from the armpits down in a judo accident, and he was never able to move a limb starting from the moment he broke his neck. So my understanding is that if you can move anything AFTER your injury, even if just for a second, it means hope is not lost that you'll regain movement.

    Sorry for the I told you so rant. I guess I'm just sensitive about this subject after what happened to my friend. In any case, it is definitely something I am glad to be right about for Kevin Everett's sake, and I hope that you feel less grumpy soon and have a great weekend.

  2. That is great news. I am sorry for my mopey dopey entries of late. I think it's the holidays. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

  3. Even though I don't follow sports, I am glad to read articles where people "Who will never wall again (sigh)" just work their butts off to stand up and walk. Good for him.

    And I beg your pardon. I don't write "grouchy" posts; I write "whiny" posts.

  4. I think that grouchiness is a an epidemic in December, and therefore December should be cancelled until further notice.

    Also, I love stories about over coming the odds. Very life affirming. Thank you.

  5. Yes, I'm with flibberty. I've been bitten by a serious Grouch Bug. Sorry!

    But your link is awesome. So thanks for that.

  6. Surely you can't still be in a bad mood! The news is a good pick me up, though, I agree.

  7. Given your post on my blog - it doesn't sound like things are much better TODAY than they were on FRIDAY. Perhaps we should launch a MONDAY BOYCOTT? Who's with ME?


Sorry for the word verification. Spambots have found this little blog!
