OK, firstly, to annoy all my US followers (or a few of them at least), let me just follow up on the last blog, by mentioning Europe’s narrow (ha ha) win over the US in the Ryder Cup by 17.5 to 10.5 points! 😛 Got it wrong, but thrilled to do so!
Right, to the meaningful stuff. Yesterday was just one of those days when everything that could go wrong during the day, did go wrong. Weather, work, public transport, and some idiot that nearly accidentally knocked me over…Yeah, you name it, it happened! So as you can guess, my back reacted accordingly, and at one point yesterday, on a pain scale of 1 to 10, my back was about 25! Thankfully, rest, and numerous painkillers (more than normal for a non working day today), and its probably down to about a 6 or 7. As to work tomorrow, I’ll see how it is in the morning.
In truth, the thing that created the issue, was the weather. The others just added to it, but…it was cold, and frosty yesterday morning when I went out. Might be expected at end of September in Svalbard, but not the UK, lol. As you can imagine, fractured spines, and very cold weather arent good friends!
So fine, I guess tonights blog from here, is most suited for scientists, and fashion designers, I suppose? What I ideally need is a full body suit (given I also have arthritis, and knee issues), that supports the whole body, especially the spine, while at the same time, not being so stiff that I can walk in reasonable comfort. Would be lovely if it could be worn as under clothes item, as catching a bus, in Yorkshire, wearing something that looks weird, and fetish, probably wouldnt work, lol. It also needs to be something that self cleans, or that I can have a few of, as I will need something like this throughout the winter.
I mean, if someone wants to come up with something a bit more kinky, for wearing at home at least, feel free to design, and suggest away. 😉 If so, metallic silver look might be fun!
Oh, and if some ‘mad scientist’ wants to design something that actually interfaces with my busted spine, oh please do! Yes, full interface, and more, just bring it on, I’d love it!
Yes, practically, I do have a budget, so designing 6 suits, at about £100K a piece, isnt going to work, unless I’m the guinea pig testing them for free! But equally, for a pain free life, I’ll listen to offers, and costs.
So yeah, if you, or someone you know might fancy this as a challenge, pass my details on, or theirs to me, just saying…
But yes, if life gets much more crazy, I need something, or I’ll have to start looking at disability benefits, and I’d rather have something fun to wear, than that. Of course, disabled benefits, and something fun to wear, hmm?
Right, video time. No, not Joe Jackson, someone more my era, Betty Grable! No, not when she was young, but still stepping out with a fine pair of pins!
PS, I have a friend in Hollywood, by the name of April, who’s the spitting image of young Betty. So if she wants to know how she’ll look in about 30 years time, lol…?
