What's the damage?

I have a climbing wall shaped bruise on the inside of my right knee. This testifies to my amazing ability to frantically use body parts other than my hands and feet to avoid the 30cm fall that you risk when bouldering. I have been known to use elbows, chin, and bottom for the same purpose, and on occasion have somehow ended up facing outwards from the wall. It ain't pretty, but it's effective. ;-)

I also have a sore wrist in that RSI/OOS kind of way. I had this when I woke up on Wednesday morning, and the only thing I can think of that I did on Tuesday to cause it was leaning on it with my head while watching The Golden Compass. Clearly the weight of my large brain is too much. *nods sagely*

You needed to know that. Yes you did. It helps with the 'personal touch' aspect of blogging. Yup.

Where did all this quiet motivation come from? *shrug* Dunno, but I say bring it on. I'm going to need it when it's sleeting and blowing a howling southerly in July and I still have to trek from Wakefield St to the university and back in my lunch hour three times a week, and work late to make up the time.

Actually, I hadn't considered chatting with my boss about getting the time off (about 3 hours a week on top of my usual lunch break of a half hour) still paid, as their contribution to my education. Reckon it'll swing?

I won't be at Fidels tonight, because I'm stuffing my face with ice cream in a feeding frenzy having dinner with my family. But, hi to everyone I haven't seen for a while, and I'll see you all next week.

*points* Look! Sunshine!

[EDIT] Edmund Hillary died today. He was 88. It's the end of an era for New Zealand, and unlike most celebrity deaths, it makes me sad. RIP.
