I managed to do a number on my back last week. What happened was this: Usually, I go walking every single day - 20-30 minutes on weekdays, longer on weekends (my weekend walks usually consist of listening to an entire J-rock album, beginning to end. If the album in question is NIL or DIM, the walk can be nearly an hour). Well, I wasn't able to go walking for a few days because we had really frigid temperatures, so I was under-exercised. That weekend, I had the opportunity to go walking indoors - we have a mall that opens its facilities for walkers an hour before the stores open during cold and rainy weather - and I tried to make up for lost time by walking for even longer than my usual weekend walk. Big mistake. When I went to get something out of my car, the result was PAIN. So I ended up hobbling around until my coworkers insisted I go to a doctor, where I was put on an antispasmodic and muscle relaxers. So I'm still kind of sore and stiff, but it's not as bad as it was.

At least I was able to use that to get out of my company's annual meeting, which is held at our home office in another state. I laid low and watched SCREW's Neverending Breath 7th Anniversary DVD instead. (The backstage documentaries with that one are pricelessly adorable - especially the third disk, which documents a mini-tour they went on before the anniversary live. There's footage where Rui drags Jin - who's afraid of heights - onto a glass-car Ferris wheel, and Manabu loses repeated rock-paper-scissors games to Kazuki and has to buy them and their road crew Starbucks.)

Also, I've been watching Boueibu (it's got a long Japanese title, but Boueibu is what most people are calling it) which is . . . well, it's an anime about a magical boy team, but it's really an over-the-top parody of just about every magical girl and bishounen anime you've ever seen. It's completely nuts - the latest episode was a yaoi parody which had a guy impressing another guy in the men's room by showing him his huge, beautiful, glowing . . . bank balance. The magical boys transform using the phrase "Love Making" and fight with "Love Sticks." Their "Luna" is a pink wombat from outer space whose preferred method of transportation is being carried by the zombiefied corpse of a teacher that the wombat accidentally killed. Like I said, it's nuts - and hilarious. (Oh, and there's a villain who looks a lot like Yuuki. First Sailor Moon Crystal's Byoulite, now this. All my biases are anime villains, it seems).

Also considering what to do with the Season of Kink Holiday Challenge - I may do a couple of different fics with different 3-5 kink combinations (especially since there's a birthday barrage coming up - if I remember correctly, Ruki, Byou and Yuuki all have birthdays within the first 10 days of February).

I pulled a muscle in my back years ago, then I pulled it again about 18 months ago. It's the worst agony i've ever felt and the problem is, it hasn't truly healed. I still have to be careful about not sitting in chairs that will make the pain come back. My car seat is actually the only thing that helps it when It gets bad. I guess it's at the right angle and the vibrations stop is stiffening up and keep the muscle loose.

You have my sympathy.

What's this "Season of Kink Holiday Challenge"? It seems interesting. :)

Omg I'm sorry to hear about your back!
Definitely sounds like a muscle injury. If I may suggest, go see a massage therapist. Get a deep-tissue massage, and I mean DEEP.
My mum had a back injury that had her in pain literally 24/7 for almost 2 years. My bro suggested the deep tissue massage, and after just ONE session, she was able to bend over and pick something up, able to get up without having to brace herself, and she slept through the night for the first time in over a year. She's not even finished with her treatment yet.
She's got the muscle relaxing medicine, but it didn't work. Hooray for holistic healing! lol
Anyway, I hope your back gets better quickly!
And I'm looking forward to seeing what you've got in store for the challenge~

Ouch! That backpain sounds terrible!!! I'll echo random_x13 and recommend you get a really good massage, to help the muscles heal. Pain meds and relaxants can only do so much. I hope you'll be fine soon!

Haha, that sounds like a really crazy anime. I'm far far behind on all anime seasons lately, and have just recently started to watch Kuroshitsuji Book of Circus... So, I'll probably get to this one in a few years ;)

You poor thing! D: Fingers crossed that clears up soon, that's the worst kind of injury. I'm also agreeing that a proper massage is an excellent idea!

Ah yes, the challenge... I'm going to stop feeling faintly smug about completing an entry, as I still haven't written something for the actual prompts I was given! Three weeks should be enough time...

So sorry to hear about your injury! I hope you're able to find effective ways of easing your pain, and that it heals quickly!
