Well, I wasn't originally going to do all that much running around, but it didn't seem right to drive all the way to St. Paul and back and not take care of some things along the way...like dropping off my financial aid paperwork, paying my truck loan (late), returning library books and picking up the ones they had on hold for me, and finally doing a little (very little) grocery shopping at Cub while getting the latest round of Amoxicillin with which to beat back the ravening hordes of bacteria that have decided today the left leg, tomorrow the world. Not a bad list of accomplishments, considering that standing on said leg makes me want to whimper and operating the clutch with it reminds me all too much of exactly where the major blood vessels are in that leg.

Which is probably just the Rocephin wreaking a fiery vengeance along the arteries down there.

Anyway, I've been back home for an hour tending to e-mail, LJ, feeding the breadmaking robot, and thinking about how frozen shrimp is better than no shrimp at all, but only just.

Get Better Soon
Ewwww. The problem with your leg sounds really gross. I hope you're better soon. I just found your blog and I'd hate like hell for you to kick now.

Library books? You mean there's someone else out there aside from me and the homeless people who use the library? Reading anything good?

Re: Get Better Soon
Thanks, and welcome to the LJ.

The problem with the leg is actually just a facet of the overall diabetes problem, which in turn is what I get for being slothful, indolent, gluttonous, and having the wrong genes: apparently both my Irish and Spanish ancestors donated genes that make me prone to Type II diabetes, and that's how we got what we have here today. Not likely to be immediately fatal, but it's a real pain while it's happening.

The local library systems have a lot of SF fans on staff, so there's a healthy selection of good stuff out there. I finished Gaiman's American Gods about a week or so ago and am on a major Charles Stross kick right now - a short review of The Atrocity Archives should eb up later today, work permitting.
