I’ve been benched

I guess I’ll be taking the weekend off. Though I didn’t do a damn thing to it, I have some kind of agonizing pain in the outside of my right wrist and lower hand. It started last night and just keeps getting worse.

I can’t hold a pen. The Schwans guy came & writing a check almost made me thow up. I can’t type. (Drafting this with my left thumb on the iPod.) Had to go to the post office … Read More »

The nook: shallow first impressions

Her name is Ethel. Not sure I would have named it, but the nook has a place to enter one, so Ethel it is. Why? Well, the new Macbook’s name is Lucy. So even though Lucy isn’t named after Lucille Ball, Ethel amused me.
