I got hit on the wrist with an elbow in Wednesday’s lunchtime hoops game, which was painful enough to overcome my deep antipathy toward the medical profession, and send me to the doctor. After a referral to an orthopedist Friday morning, the verdict was a contusion of one of the umpteen little bones in my wrist. Nothing is broken, but I’m going to be spending the next few weeks wearing the brace in the picture, and icing it regularly.
The brace in question makes typing rather inconvenient, and I’m not a good typist to begin with. This means I’m going to restrict my typing-related program activities to things that pay better than blogging– namely, my day job, and book revisions when the reader comments come in (hint, hint). So, no lengthy new blogging here for a while.
In a way, this is well timed, as a lot of my regular bloggy reading has started to seem indescribably tedious, so it’s probably time for me to take a break for a while. It’s not good when your hobby starts to feel like work.
There will probably continue to be Links Dump postings, because those don’t require much typing, and I’ll still be doing some poking around on the Internet, as that’s become an indispensable part of my wake-up routine. I’m not going to be writing lengthy new posts for a while, though, unless something irritates me enough to make typing with the brace on seem like a good idea.
Until later, then.
