The pin in my finger has been out for two weeks and I've been doing PT the whole time. I didn't wear the splint at all yesterday or last night, so I decided to get brave and actually try touch-typing with that finger again! First time since May 9th!
Only... I can't. My touch typing patterns have changed, and I now use the middle and little fingers for the letters my ring finger used to hit. It's automatic and easy and I'm having a hard time forcing my ring finger to touch the keys.
So that's a change in a decades-old automatic practice in 2-1/2 months. Our habits are more plasic than I realized.
Nope, no GenCon this year. I went once and was disappointed that the games all fill up before the convention starts. Didn't realize as a noob that you had to register for games in advance. So went to GenCon and didn't do any gaming besides Eve (the card game). :/
Got up early today for physical therapy, but the therapist is sick. Just as well, since I smacked the finger hard on the edge of the table yesterday and it's a lovely shade of purple in some spots. Derp.
Now it's off to take care of whiny dogs and get a badly needed haircut.
The first one was in the middle of an awful thunderstorm and they thought it was somebody smoking in the top floor hallway (so as not to go out into the storm). Now they think the deluge that day may have gotten into the alarm system wiring because the same alarm is tripping and there's no cigarette smoke. Besides, people can go on the outer stairway to smoke in the open air but sheltered from rain, so there's no reason to smoke inside.
Cigarettes don't trigger normal fire alarms, do they? Well, I guess they do in airplane lavatories, but those may be alarmed for smoking.
All I know is IT EARLY AND BRAYN AM NOT AWAKE.
I always just boiled mine in a sauce pan...
Uff da. OK, I'll admit to being a purist in some ways. You bring a kettle to the boil, then pour some boiling water into the tea pot to heat it up, returning the kettle to the flame while you swish the water around. Pour out the cooled water, put the tea in, then fill the pot with boiling water. Put the lid on, put a tea cozy on, wait a couple of minutes, then pour off an ounce or so of the tea.
Now you're ready to drink it.
My poor roommate. She got on a tea binge a few years ago and bought a nice fancy electric kettle, several types of tea brewers/strainers, and tons of canisters of expensive tea. She enjoys and savors them all.
So when I moved in and she went to restock tea, she kept asking what kinds I liked -- monkey-picked oolong, imperial green, earl grey creme, etc. I finally whispered Liptons. Yes, tea bags. So now she's got a pantry shelf full of lovely teas and I have a box of Liptons. Her kettle has several heat settings so each tea brews at the right temperature. I crank it up all the way, drop in my tea bags, and let it steep until coffee-colored. Then I load it with sugar and cream and have it as a meal.
She tries to civilize me, she really does. But at least her fancy teas are safe (except for blackberry mojito).
They can be very nerve-wracking - much moreso than other pbps.
If you haven't already found these, Ryuko created what I believe was the original Mafia/werewolf thread on these boards with Wolves of the Weirwood and followed it up with his Murder Mystery Tour. DougFungus created the next Murder Mystery and they kind of caught on, with several variations.
--a huge list, most of which I haven't seen -- I am sorry that I could not come up with more.
Holy cow! Somebody watches a lot of TV! Thanks for the suggestions. :)
Good Luck Vampire Bite Treppa action figure!
Thanks, but it's more Gila Bite. Still, any biting is good biting.

o_O OM NOM.
I'm making a list of TV shows and movies to watch during the week(s?) in bed. So far, I have mostly British shows:
Trying a dry run (nyuk) liquid diet today.
Breakfast: blended milk, yogurt, banana, dutch chocolate protein powder. No chunks, easy to make even half asleep, thin enough to get through straws, taking a long time to sip, filling, tasty. Success! Though I did skip the blackstrap molasses, which really should be in today's menu somewhere. Just couldn't handle them first thing in the morning.

Nope. Is it a thing?

I walked to the local pizza joint for lunch (caught a ponyta and pidgey and zubat and drowsee on the way) and they forgot my order. When everyone else cleared out and I was sitting alone, foodless, I asked. They apologized and hustled pizza out for me - yum - then 10 minutes later brought out a basket of fried dough! o_O Never had it before. I was full of pizza and took it back to the apartment for everyone.
