Just before lunch, I smacked the back of my hand HARD against the edge of my desk. "That's going to leave a mark," I said. Indeed, it has. I've been watching the bruise develop over the course of the afternoon.

Contrary to popular belief, I do not actually bruise all that easily, unless I haven't been getting iron in my diet. Most of the time I get the iron, too. It's just that my balance and coordination, while excellent in comparison to what they were when I was 14, are still appalling when compared to normal people. Given the sheer frequency with which I collide with inanimate objects, if I bruised easily, I'd look like someone was beating me.

No detailed weekend update, as it's been covered elsewhere. Just the two quotes of the weekend:

demongrey: I shouldn't have to negotiate to get my own body parts back!

and, later,

talanos: Oh my God, you've got legs!

For all the grief I gave talanos, I understand what he meant, and he's right. I do generally try to keep my legs covered, at least above the knee. I was very comfortable Saturday, in cotton-poly-spandex shorts with a long skirt over them for decency (I may generally be overly harsh on myself, but I don't think anyone will argue that I should go out in public in spandex). In fact, I wore a very similar outfit yesterday, only replacing Saturday's T-shirt with my more usual button-down. Dispensing with the stockings was a treat.

It was a good gaming session, though. This is the first time in months that I've felt I was actually contributing something to a game. It's quite a relief to not be thinking back on it with frustration that I couldn't do better.

Back at work, Ginny's training a new file clerk. This one is a college student who seems to be fairly intelligent. We'll see how it goes, but he certainly seems to be an improvement over most of the ones we've had.

    It is so much more fun to be obsessing over how best to clean mouse pee off My Little Ponies instead of what the surgeon will say tomorrow.
