:peeks out at world:
Oh look at that. You’re still here. The worst stretch of this week is over, and I’ve totally retreated to my office cave. My brain is slowing down from the hyperactive zombie hamster invasion (if that sounds inefficient, it totally was and is what leads to such things as hands being crushed by falling window sashes).
I’ve gotten back all mobility in my fingers, and about 50% mobility in my thumb on the crushed by window hand. My left thumb–well it’s just going to suck until the skin grows back on that knuckle. PSA: Cheese graters are DANGEROUS PEOPLE! I have done every conceivable organizing thing on assorted projects that must be done this week, so I should manage to wrangle it that I don’t have to actually interact with anyone more than 5 or 10 minutes the rest of the week at work.
:sigh of relief:
I managed to get through all of Wednesday without further maiming myself. Given the way the rest of the week was going, I consider this a major accomplishment. Just to be safe, I skipped my workout yesterday morning. Didn’t think it prudent to touch weights or heavy equipment.
It was actually quite a nice birthday considering I had to work. One of the trainees brought in donuts for my birthday. Susan gave me Gerard Butler. I had an inbox, FB wall, and Twitter stream full of lovely well wishers. Hubby got me a CREME BRULEE TORCH! Obviously I am not touching it until current klutzy streak is over. My sweet in laws got me this GORGEOUS cover for my Nook Tablet. :pets the pretty:
We went out for Mexican for dinner and I got to wear the birthday sombrero. Nothing makes up for a shitty week like a giant sombrero and a strawberry margarita. I’m just sayin’. I did my first tequila shot too. First shot of anything ever actually. It came with the hat. I’m still trying to sort out whether Pepto will stop the burning… Yeah, that’s me. Wild and crazy chick.
I also read through all of Act 1 of DOTH (I’m working on the FPP now), and but for one scene that I hated (and have since, I think, figured out how to fix–maybe), I loved it. There are clunky passages and things to clean up, but I’m really pleased. I actually wrote last night for the first time since Sunday. It’s a tricky scene and I need to think about the imagery I want to use to portray what’s going on. But…yeah. I was really really pleased with the first 25k. So the week is looking up!
