First afternoon with the new class yesterday.  The last class was most collision track, and generating interest was challenging.  This class is 100% performance track, and clearly... they will keep me stepping.   Brains at work, hardcore.

Okay.... challenge accepted.   I'll edjumacate me some motor-mush heads, and do it right good.  Here, Hold ma beer!

I was discussing dual clutch sequential transmissions with them yesterday..... First day of class.  Sheesh.

In other news, muscle pain in my neck.  Apparently from holding up my big fat head.  It's been going on for a week now, and by the end of the day it's teeth gritting time.

Last night I got home, retrieved a Vicoden from the safe, and washed it down with a glass of whiskey.  That bought me two hours of mostly-no pain.  It bought me a chance to hit the rack and go lights out.  I needed that.

I'll stop on the way to school today and buy Tylenol and Aspirin.  They'll do, as long as I stay ahead of it.

Get thee to a massage therapist. One that works with a physical therapist or chiropractor. No need to see either of the latter two but a good deep massage does wonders for tight muscle's.

Yeah, I know. That's exactly what I need.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, I'll make do with a pressure point massage bar and whiskey. The neck muscles are at the point of screaming when anything even gets near them. Heat and ice are my friends just now.

I know several excellent massage therapists. One is my Ex-Gf. I helped her through that school and invested in her first studio. Hell of a talent, but I'd rather not let her get within reach anymore....

The other is a very talented young lady, who really knows her stuff. But.... appointments are a month out, and $$ can be an issue just now.
