Have a temporary job building at the book fair. Fun but painful.

Job at the book fair has left me injured - very painful wrist. At one point I damaged a fingernail that's now bleeding and quite a bit about it is breaking off. The combination meant I had to give up shifting books and I got to start sweeping. Typing, piano, knitting are all hard.

Has anyone ever referred to you as accident prone Bonny? Hope it gets better soon.

I'm getting better but I've ended dropping out altogether this semester. I ended up missing too much to be able to catch up. The good news is that I can still proceed with my second semester courses, so at least it's not setting me back an entire year. I still have access to course notes and I'm continuing to work on stuff that will be good preparation for what comes next.

I've been taking the opportunity to spend more time on my music and I've been working hard at the piano as well as the guitar.

Sorry to hear about that, Poly, hope you're in good health now...

My wrist is feeling a little better, the swelling has decreased but it's still cracking a little.

I washed dishes for about 5 years last decade. Lots of constant rotary motion for my wrists. Lots of quick motion and activity picking up multiple dishes bewteen my fingers, loading up glass racks, etc. Soon after I started, my wrists started audibly cracking.

It never hurt. But they did feel tight. So off work and while there I was constantly rotating my wrists as if I was undoing the rotary motion that generated the tightness. All day they'd get wound and the rest of the day I'd unwind them til that became unsconscious. Especially my right hand. After I quit washing dishes in time the sensation lessened. It's not ever gone away completely but it's also never hurt exactly. With my luck it's probably primed me for arthritis or since I drink so much coffee for gout.:duh:

Sorry to hear about your pains. I would think that your time at playing video games might prepare you for what you're doing now.

AT&T said the new hookup was ten times faster and blahblah

Today it is slow and hiccups, with delays before posting and then double posts. Same sort of glitches even with gmail.:umm:

It even hurt when I typed or used the touchpad. But it's entirely gone now.
Two days ago I recorded the sound of my wrist moving. It sounds like footsteps in fresh snow.

All of The Netherlands had web loading issues today. It even was on the news.

Nice poetic description. My back would make sounds like that when I stretched. Still does. Glad to hear you're feeling better.

And oh, interesting. I was thinking AT&T the server here was throttling speeds on the internet. I expect them to at some point even though there is legislation passed to prevent that.

I have a permanent break in my right wrist. The lump that sticks out at the end of the smaller of the two forearm bones is broken clean through. I can make audible clicking noises with it so I do it every now and then to prove that I can but it's unpleasant so I generally avoid it. It's been like that since I was thirteen after a nasty accident. The repair of my wrist was bungled by a couple of local medical incompetents who believed they didn't need the help of an orthopaedic surgeon. I didn't discover this until over ten years later when my wrist swelled after working in a woollen mill for a while. I was completely gob smacked when the doctor showed me my xray which demonstrated various anomalies that had been perplexing him since he'd first seen it himself.

If you're talking about that bump below the pinky - the one on my left hand is split in two as well. I am accident prone, as you rightly noted- when I was a kid rollerskates were the thing and I had the tendency to be conquered by gravity. My left wrist is the one that I bruised a lot.

Breaking my ankle taught me I'm not immune to broken bones, and now I wonder if injuries that I sustained as a kid were actually more serious than I thought.

On Whit Monday (that's next Monday) it'll be open day in most castles in this region. Looking forward to it and am deciding whether to go to Geldrop or Asten. Asten is further away and more expensive, but as it's a ruin it can only be visited with a tour guide for safety reasons. It got damaged in WW1 (not sure how) and attempts to restore the castle were definitely shattered when a phosphor bomb burnt down most of the 12th century building.
http://dutchcastles.blogspot.nl/2012/05/kasteel-asten-noord-brabant...

It has quite a history to it: the booming age of the castle came in the 1500s when Bernard van Merode became lord of Asten. He developed the building and enlarged the area - at the cost of the people living around him, who he arrested for witchcraft and tortured and even killed in his dungeon.

This is fascinating B! Of course I love all things from 14-1500's. But I love these 'portraits' of specific places. Little details allow me to imagine what it must have been like.

Sorry about the five days plus. I'm a little caught up in that all stars band thing at zappa.com. It's been an amusing distraction during a period when I need a few. I'm seem to be healing pretty well but I'm feeling a bit flat, I'm sure I'll snap out of it soon enough.

Great to hear that Poly!
Ended up feeling a bit too tired to go castle tripping. Besides I have 2 days left to prepare for the Diru concert! (is totally stoked)
