Phil Donahue is on WPR right now. He's an engaging, passionate speaker. I never realized this when he was doing that talk show which was... terrible. This, though, - him speaking of terrorism and war and political force - is inspiring and enflaming.

I don't think I slept last night. I woke achy, sore, and still exhausted. I didn't go to the gym again; that's two days now. My back is sore from the labor yesterday and my hand a little stiff, though better today than it was last night when it was throbbing. Let me tell you, when you have only one hand that hand starts hurting in the joints and muscles, you get scared quickly. I had my first ever vague worries about incapacitation last night that I do not wish to re-live. Subsequently, I'm going to dig up my one-handed keyboard and practice. So long as I have use of my fingers, I can still type.

Maybe I should practice typing with my feet again. I can play some video games with my toes and used to be able to type with my feet - slowly, sure, but type all the same. Yes, LJ, I have a back-up plan in case of catastrophe. :)

Re: photog_xp - New theme request up. I think I need additional moderators to help keep the community going when work and life eat me. Anyone interested who could post the two required polls on Thursdays and Fridays? I'll work out a schedule for people depending on who wants to help.

I'd like to go back to bed now, please. Or, I guess, just stop feeling sore everywhere.

Dude. Your photo has the surreal "Coneheads" thing going for it.

That's actually jealousy you're feeling.

I'm totally jealous of your Nom.

And hungry. I forgot a scone this morning. :(

I have cereal at work for forgotten-scone emergencies like that.

Jerry Springer is the same way. I was always disgusted by his show but he has a political radio show and it's quite good.

I have tendonitis in my hands and I must admit that it really scares me sometimes. Art is my life and the thought of losing the ability to use my hands well is terrifying. It must be awful to have those anxieties heightened by only having one shot at having a hand. 0_o

I used to be able to play piano with my feet, but not well.

Oh, Jerry Springer is a fantastically smart person; I've heard him on Air America adn various places outside his talk show. I'm sad that not many people know how awesome he is.

You really do remind me a lot of myself. Although you seem to be a lot more motivated than I. Do you use your left arm at all while typing? I pretty much only use it for the shift, and thats about it. Other then that I have to look at the keyboard to find all the right keys.

Im kinda interested in seeing this one handed keyboard you speak of. I'm curious. Ive been looking around for stuff like that, but haven't really found anything.
abmann From: abmann Date: September 4th, 2008 03:27 pm (UTC) (Link)
This is the keyboard:

I watch the keys too though I can actually touch type with one hand if I keep the keyboard in exactly they right spot and don't use backspace, delete, shift, or control. I have to look to get my hand in the right place if I use any of those buttons. So, I do that occasionally and if I know the keyboard well enough.

When I was in junior high, I took a typing class. When using hand and nub, I can touch type at like 40 words a minute which is pathetic. Likely worse now as I never type like that. But it was funny being faster than many of the people in the class even at the end of the semester.

aw, i hope you feel better soon, mister.
abmann From: abmann Date: September 4th, 2008 03:31 pm (UTC) (Link)
Me too. I'm trying to actually diet AND exercise to drop some body fat. It's hard to do the exercise part when you're too sore to move. :(

Also - food is evil. Tasty, tasty evil.

NOMNOM.

Did you feed your starter??

that picture made me giggle out loud. LOVE it. Not sure what you have to do/have to be able to post the polls, but if I'm able, I'd be happy to. Let me know.

I believe all you need is a non-basic account to create polls. Have you a non-basic account?

Nothing below the elbow on my left arm.

Iris says I should tell you that you should smoke crack. She isn't down with doing it herself but is all about you doing it.
abmann From: abmann Date: September 4th, 2008 08:58 pm (UTC) (Link)
I think you're smoking crack.
From: natural_path Date: September 4th, 2008 07:55 pm (UTC) (Link)
I asked you before, where you arm went.
you never got back to me.
Now I know, you ate it.


This is a great picture.
