Say it isn't so, Manny!

Ramirez Suspended 50 Games For Drug Violation.

I'm sure a lot of people who read about this (not you, flist, y'all are smarter than that) are going to immediately assume that this is a steroids thing, which apparently it isn't. And? I have no idea why, but I believe the guy. For one thing, he's never had a positive drug screen, and he takes a lot of them on purpose. And also because I'm probably liek, the only one left in Red Sox Nation who still has a soft spot for Manny. *sigh*

In other news, I went to the chiropractor on Tuesday and he did an adjustment and now my back, etc. feels somewhat better (translation: pain level lower than an eight for longer periods of time). I'm feeling well enough to do some housework today, which I need to do before songdog arrives.

Cleaning without running water is a challenge, but definitely doable (in case I didn't mention it, I lost running water a while back due to burst pipes, and can't afford to get it fixed yet). It's interesting, but I'm learning a LOT about water conservation and how much I was using, and how it's really not so bad having to work around it. I still manage to stay clean/fed/dressed in clean clothes. Schlepping water is pain, but at least I'm schlepping fresh, clear stuff and I don't have to walk ten miles to do it, which means I'm much better off than most people in the world.

P.S. I know I've missed a lot of my flist's posts lately; it's because I've been working/visiting family/having owies. If there's anything that I simply have to see or answer or know about, please tell me? I should be back to more thorough reading soon. :)

I am still in shock over the Manny thing.
I am also in shock that my Jays are in first place despite a decimated pitching staff.
Glad your back is feeling better. I was always skeptical of chiropractors until one day I hurt my back (golfing I think) and I went to a guy who fixed me up good.

okay that last comment was from me -- I wasn't properly logged in so it came out as annonymous. Of course I may be the only Jays fan you know...

So Manny was apparently prescribed HCG. It's kind of amusing that the hormone women make when they're pregnant is banned by MLB. ;)

Of course I may be the only Jays fan you know...

You may be the only Canadian baseball fan I know. Unless everyone else is seekritly hiding it. And yeah, I know, maybe Ontario DOES need another hockey team, but the whole country needs another baseball team. Nothing against the Blue Jays, it's just that one team isn't enough, is all. :)

Actually what Ontario needs is one GOOD hockey team.
As for baseball, I think it would be great to have another Canadian team (Vancouver perhaps?) but not sure big Bud would think that was a good idea...

Just wanted to say that I just recced you on crack_van. : )

Also apologizing for being lazy, because I used the same text as when I recced that story on ds_recsredux. Ahem. I imagine the audience for those comms is different, anyway.

And I hope your back continues to get better!

You recced me? Aww, thank you! I'm really insecure about the stuff I write (especially when I've been reading Viridian's fic from back in the day, because OMG, it's so good), so yay! :D :D *runs off to look*
