I took today off work because I had a doctor's appointment in the morning. It was with an ankle specialist/surgeon, to determine if there was anything seriously wrong with my right ankle.

Backstory! I have always had lousy wrists/ankles. My ankles especially are stiff and crack a fair amount. My right ankle is the worst and back when I was working retail full-time, it got really painful, to the point where my last couple of months in Toronto were spent in the backroom with a chair beside me to kneel my right leg on. And I had a brace bought at the drugstore and lots of Advil Muscle & Joint. So after I moved back to Ottawa, I finally decided it was time to see a doctor about it. That ended in my referral.

Oh yeah, and that was THREE YEARS AGO!!!

Anyway, I had some x-rays done a few weeks ago and saw the guy today. And pretty much he doesn't think there is anything bad enough to justify any drastic action, though he could tell that I toe in from looking at the x-rays, since my bones are aligned in odd ways. Just not odd enough for surgery or anything like that.

He did prescribe me a better ankle brace, which I picked up afterwards. It's interesting, though it's going to take awhile to figure out how to adjust it so that it doesn't cause too much discomfort, while also giving me some support. I'm going to see what it is like wearing it all day and taking it off at night, to see if it's worth it or if I should just use it when I'm going to be standing/walking/otherwise vertical for long periods of time.

On the plus side, I am home now and have nothing pressing to do for the rest of the day. Which means I can finally catch up on fan fic writing and reading, hurrah!

While I'm writing, I am also going to do another music on my iPod meme! Sort of!

So, this time I'm going to tell you the first 10 songs that played that ALSO have a 5-star rating. A bit self-serving because I am trying to get all iPod music rated, to make it easier to purge music if I need room for audiobooks and podcasts.

That was actually pretty damn representational of my musical tastes. Awesome.
