Set engines to Sloth speed.

Thank god for all things wireless this week as it appear that my knees have decided they need a holiday and have buggered off somewhere south leaving me a bit stuck and in quite a bit of pain.

I was out jogging one morning with Mrs StiGGy and part way through our route we had to stop as my knees seemed to be aching and became rather stiff all of a sudden. Rather than risk injury I didn’t run for a few days until all felt well again. Fast forward a few days and on another run and this time it was much worst, In fact later on that day at work, the ol legs stiffened up so much that i couldn’t bend them without great effort and shooting pain. With a walk like that I would have had no problems starring in a B movie monster flick 🙂 The drive home was fun too!

Over the next few days I tried to take it easy but it appeared to be getting worse, especially the inside sides of both knees so i booked in to see my GP, who we’ll now refer to as Dr Death because I’m pretty sure he was smiling as he prodded and poked my poor knee bits….no not really, he’s rather a nice chap.

Anyho he’s says I’ve probably done this and that and, although it could take some time , it should heal itself and I should take it really easy and revisit him next week as he takes delivery of a new hammer. I also have some rather nice medication that actually enables one to fly and gives the ability to smell the colour orange.

Lucky for me I’d previously booked a few days off work this week….disappointingly though, it was because i was planned on heading over to Wales to camp and a hike up Mt Snowden. No matter, it can wait a month or so.

So I’m house bound (sorta) and about as fast as a Sloth who excels in Sloth-ness and so i give thanks to all things wireless this week as it means I don’t have creak around. Thank you wireless Internet access, thank you iPad, iPhone and wireless games controller. Thank you Ouya and TV remotes. Thank you HTPC and wireless keyboard. Thank you 3DO….not because you’re wireless but because of the clever designers who made you decided to fit an incredibly long wire on the gamepad. And finally a huge thank you to my wireless coffee maker who, via the magic of voice recognition, provides the perfect brew and hand delivers it – thanks Mrs StiGGy 🙂

  1. Hope you’ll get well soon, StiGGy. In the meantime, you could fine tune your hand-eye coordination with a couple session of Frantic Freddy on the C64 (I love this game and the music is quite nice).

  2. Hi there and many thanks. Its been a while since i’ve played Frantic Freddy so I’ll check it out again. I did think about Daley Thompson’s Decathlon but even fully fit, that game will break you.

    Kind regards


  3. Lol, feel your pain, been kind of similar since I came out of hospital, thank god its not 1983 and waiting on my Spectrum loading! Get well soon.

  4. Cheers buddy I’m sure all will be fine in a few weeks. If not, I’m thinking robotic implants…..powered by a Raspberry Pi of course!
