Little late news, but yesterday my boss was nice enough to give me the day off (using a sick day) and I was able to go to a take care clinic. The doctor was pretty sure it was just a strain and not a hernia. Though there is always a chance. So basically I have been taking it easy, taking advil, and applying bengay. Still he suggested I undertake physical therapy. So pretty much I'm going to the hospital to strengthen my groan area. Hopefully this will help and if the pain doesn't clear up in weeks, then I will have to go to another doctor to get an x-ray to see what the problem is. It might just be a strain. I mean I still feel tightness and the occasional twinge of pain (light not excruciating), but overall I was able to go through the day without any real problems ie walking around, even walking all the way to Burger King. I'm still taking it easy.
I haven't really been in such a good mood due to this, but also I have been fairly distracted from DA and the rest of the internet for another reason: South Park The Stick of Truth. I finally got that game and I have to say it is awesome! As a South Park fan I am glad there is at least one good game for the show as some of the earlier ones sucked. As an RPG fan I am half pleased and half disappointed. The game itself is rather short, some even beating it in days. But I guess in a way the short length is a blessing as it offers multiple playthroughs on different classes or difficulty levels.
The storyline is basically this: You play the role as the new kid in South Park and wind up participating in a Townwide LARP (Live Action Role Play) where two sides (the humans led by Cartman, and the Drow Elves) are fighting over the titular "Stick of Truth". You customize your character via clothing, skin color, hair style, name, and lastly character class: Fighter, Mage, Thief, or....Jew.
The game has been taking up most of my time and overall I'm enjoying it immensely. Let's hope this whole medical issue is resolved fairly quickly and without surgery.
