dyk, other than the fact that I find being around kids irratating at best (and the fact hat I enjoyed myself this weekend worries me too - it goes to show how miserable I am here), the whole body fluids thing aline is enough to keep me childless

dyk, there is not enough money in the world to get me' to change a diaper, collecting a poop sample is out of the question

DYK I rolled my ankle over this summer playing kickball

DYK that was early June -- and all summer it's been wimpy.  While swimming a flutter type kick would ache.  And it stayed puffy around the ankle for over a month.  If I was on it too much it was achy - and this was a couple weeks ago

DYK  2 weeks ago I simply stepped down from the sidewalk to a parking lot - and my ankle promptly rolled over again (and dropped me to my knees).

DYK actually got it looked at this time and I'm in an aircast walking boot for at least 6 weeks.  Nothing broken, just badly strained ligaments.

DYK anywhoo -- orthopedic guy told me it can take a good 6-8 MONTHS for ligaments/tendons to heal (depending on how badly injured)

DYK if you just mildly irritated it, it could take a couple weeks.

DYK how long are you stretching?

DYK and if you irritated a tendon or ligament -- they take a long time to heal

dyk, surprisingly, there aren't really any good coffee places around here

dyk, there are 3 places that are ok - one has limited hours and isn't actually that close (but bonus - they have almond milk and good food), one has VERY limited hours (8-5 M-Sa...yea, no but is literally half a block away), and one has only 'ok' coffee but has wonderful hours (but they barely speak English, the woman is snotty, and the place is always disorganizedly crowded). Only one place has coffee that is even approaching Starbucks and all are more expensive.

dyk, none have any sort of loyalty program.

dyk, and they are all cash only.

dyk, and as for by my office - well, I work in Times Square and I hate tourists so I'm not interest in finding a 'local' place.

dyk, so really, I'm glad that I made the switch to black coffee...at least I broke my 2-3+ times a day latte habit so now I won't go broke.
