temporary loss of service…

My thumb’s still sore. So no blogs for the moment, (except this one), i can do a bit of Twittering, but basically am trying not to use it. Just so y’all know. It’s much better, but still strapped up.

As if i didn’t have enough on my plate with the bloody mould sensitivity and it being winter and the mould growing like… well, mould! Though we soldier on. We have started packing. Two – yes TWO – boxes of books. Well, we have a month of saving petrol money before we can move any of it, so it’s a start.

Mr Whatsit evidently has too many non-human parts to be considered for medical experimentation – all that metal holding him together inside. They suggested i try selling him to a mining company, as titanium always fetches a good price.

His leg brace is also titanium, but of course, if i sell that before i sell him, he won’t be able to go to the shop when i need chocolate, so that would be short-sighted of me. Besides, at the moment, he’s doing all the cooking thanks to my thumb, so he’s saved his pretty hide for another week or so.

So, that’s my life. I am finding this thumb thing very frustrating, but at least i can use the hand again a bit – i can pull my pants up! Only 5 days ago, I couldn’t even use my left hand that much.

It’s ow already *scowls* so ending this.

    I’m not going to let husband read this post, or it could give him ideas. Can’t walk in the rain anymore for fear of lightning strikes. With all the metal in my body, I’m a human lightning rod.

    Glad you can pull up your pants now. Walking around with them at your ankles is dangerous.

    lol – no partner-mining? darn. Yeah i’m glad about the pants too, it’s been cooooold here.

    Metal prices are in the toilet. Moly, (Molybdenum) Platty (platinum), Tit (titanium), iron, zinc, forget it. Even fucking rutile is down (although rutile probably not contained in his terminator recon job). You should have rendered him down during 2007. Has he got any gold teeth? They’ll hold value, but If not, warehouse him until the Tit price recovers.

    I try and avoid pulling up my pants as a rule.


    Hope you’re feeling better soon!
