This evening I went Christmas shopping at the none-too-crowded Beverly Center and got nothing for nobody. However, for myself, I did find "Therma Sox". I bought them with the intuitive certainity that, although I didn't know how, great amounts of healing energy would soon be travelling up from the soles of my feet. Now that I have brought them home, I have nothing but problems. First, I have no microwave, the preferred way to heat the gel-like substance that goes into each sock. Cleverly, I steamed them (am I not a genius?) but found the heating gel too hot to handle. Letting it cool makes the sock considerably less effective. Another problem is that you can't walk on the sock as the gel would squish out under the pressure. So here I am, immoblized in moderately warm socks.
But the good news is that I'm now watching Robert Altman's "The Long Goodbye." Forty three minutes into it, I can find nothing wrong with it
