I have been quiet lately. Not much to report. I'm pretty much about 95% recovered from the surgery. I still have a little bit of ringing in my ears. And maybe once a day I feel a little bit of sway in my step that I didn't intend. Bit of the sensation of taste is missing too. Other than that I'm feeling pretty good. Mostly I've been catching up on some schoolwork; midterms last week. I've read a bunch of books, gonna dump the list to booktards in a bit. Although I'm taking a C course, I've been reading both the textbook and another (geekier) book at the same time, cuz I really want to finally get good at programming in at least one language besides Perl. Not that I'm very good at perl, mind you. It is working so far. I think I'm running a 3.5 or a 4.0 in that class.

I still can't take the Suzuki out. It IS driving me insane. I keep hearing motorcycles rumble past the house, and my nose gets plastered to the window like a pathetic puppy that hasn't been outside in weeks.

I can't go hiking for an entire month. They were pretty specific about that.

Plus, until August 5th, I don't get the external device for the CI, so I don't really recieve any benefit from it yet. In fact, I've got half the hearing I had before the surgery, maybe a little less from recovery tinnitus. Keeping my fingers crossed for the 5th though.

Big social event on the 12th. I will have to de-hermit myself despite being megadeaf. At least everybody there already knows I'm screwed up! I can tune them out without them being offended. Plus, there will be copious amounts of alcohol, so nobody will remember!

Since its nice and cool out, I'm gonna finally scrub the bird poop from the truck. Got some of that bug-b-gone crap from the auto store yesterday.

Weeeeellll, thats about it!
