Last Monday, I was working on a project at work, when I had a shooting pain go through my forearm. I have come to find out that it is some kind of repetitive stress injury, and it will probably take a few weeks for at all the work out, but I will need to be aware of this problem in the future.
So I have come to a strange mental place, where I am reviewing the way I interact and provide input to my computer. I have started using a dictation software called iListen, I have been testing note the different mice I have to find a which one hurts the least to use, and being more aware of body positioning and such while I use the computer. I have tried starting to be left handed with my mouse, but I’m going to need to find some children’s games that teach good mouse skills. I have been training iListen, but I do not know how I am going to survive on a Unix command line or in this logging software, as there is much I need to tight that is not something that is generally spoken. Only time will tell, but gods do I hope my wrist gets better soon.
About a week ago, I picked up Pawn of Prophecy, the first book in The Belgariad series by David Eddings. I’ve read it before, maybe twice, along with the rest of the series, the sequel series The Mallorean, and appendix novels Belgarath the Sorcerer and Polgara the Sorcerous. I’ve been attempting to get back into the habit of reading for pleasure, and a bit of escapism helps that. The only problem is, there’s close to 1400 pages in the 5 novels that make The Belgariad, and I’ve had a terrible time doing ANYTHING but reading them anytime I’ve been in the house.
The other dangerous part about the books is that it makes me believe I really should go build some huge house with naught on the first floor but an open hall and a kitchen, and a gigantic fireplace or two. While I’d like to go into more of this, I’m finding it hard to type with the wrist brace on. It seems I’m getting some computer born wrist troubles. Goodnight.
Philocrites tells usUUA trustees meet in Boston this weekend.
I’ve read through part of the prepacket. My friend Michael Ohlrogge makes it a habit to read through ALL the prepackets and minutes of the BoT, which I’ll honestly say is quite a lot of work. I’ve been trying to get better at it, and have been trying to devise a method of getting them converted into MP3’s to listen to in the car.

It’s probably been that long since I saw really GOOD SciFi. Joss Whedon is, of course, a genius, and Serenity will in no way disappoint. The story is complete, and yet it leaves the story completely open for more movies, TV shows, etc. If SciFi has really gone and picked up the FireFly/Serenity series, I might just need to get cable.
This week, I’ve managed to:
- Facilitate a conference call
- Registered for the YA/CM Professionals Seminar
- Agree to coach the Willow Run Middle School swim team one more time
- Piss off the Steering Committee of C*UUYAN
- Not rearrange furniture

I just found this blog in Philocrites Guide to UU Blogs. Titled “Bruising talk about our beloved community”, this guy gets my Cranky UU award (and yes, that is a compliment).
