AAAAARRRGH!  
I have hurt my right arm. I had some Bowen therapy (a therapy that has wacky beliefs underlying it, but which seems to work nonetheless, like accupuncture) this afternoon, which has helped a bit, but not a lot. I have 10,000 words that were meant to be written tomorrow, and which are all in my head, but I can only type with my left hand. AAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRGH!

I should take this as a sign to visit friends instead, but am sticking to my original plan and will instead be writing veeeeeeeeeerrrrrrry sloooooooowly.

In the meantime, minimal typing, so even though I will probably read your post, I'll probably not comment. Would you be so kind as to please choose the correct response from the following list:

* Yay!!
* Oh, I'm so sorry.
* Well said!
* OMG!
* Is that Tom Felton?
* That's because you're smarter than them.
* A paste of bicarbonate of soda.
* I find cats to be the best answer.
* Good manners are never out of fashion.
* It's not as though it's real cricket.
* Skandar!

To almost anything I say: I find cats to be the best answer. It usually is!

Take care of yourself, hon.
blamebramptonblamebrampton on September 15th, 2009 11:57 am (UTC)
I agree! and I am. I used to be better at left handed typing, but I haven't broken my right arm in years!

You, my dear, rock. Though I hope you'll do it carefully. Take it easy, okay? *gentle hugs*

* Is that Tom Felton?

*lol* 10 more days!! :D

Yay! I knew it would work. *One-armed hugs back*

I find cats to be the best answer.

Apart from the obvious Get well soon! to you, cats are the best answer for most things, among them, but not exclusively:

a mouse, an upset stomach, too little time, a sad face, a dog, a burglar, many unsorted stacks of paper, a teacup you don't like, rude answers, a nice neighbour, dirty dishes, boredom, silly people, crazy phone calls, ...

:-D
blamebramptonblamebrampton on September 15th, 2009 12:05 pm (UTC)
You're the right answer, too!

I once carried a cranky hat through a house where I thought I could hear someone breaking in. My theory was I would distract the burglar with my bath-fresh nudity, then assault him with a well-thrown cat while I found a better weapon. Turned out to be a fallen-down tree ;-)

Definitely! There's nothing in the world that can't be made better by the addition of a kitten. Except possibly a stew...

AHAHAHA! and ew.

>I find cats to be the best answer

Yes, I'm with the cats, although...anything involving Tom might be correct too *giggle*
blamebramptonblamebrampton on September 15th, 2009 12:09 pm (UTC)
Good point! I wonder if he owns a cat?

THAT LAST ONE IS TOTALLY WORKING FOR ME! =P

*throws some more of him at you, just in case you didn't get enough in my own post...*

*massages your wrist to make it better* I have no idea if it would work, sorry =/ I'd type for you while you babbled it all at me, if I were there! Sorry I'm not.

*cuddles!*
blamebramptonblamebrampton on September 15th, 2009 12:12 pm (UTC)
Thank you, dear!

It's more the forearm, damn muscles. A bit have broken too many bones, a lot too mush typing with not enough stretching. If I was Skandar's age it would all be fine ;-)

Oh, I am so sorry. I will be sending your some
healing energy, in the meantime, be gentle with
yourself. ( squishes )
blamebramptonblamebrampton on September 15th, 2009 12:29 pm (UTC)
Cheers, dear. It is my own fault for too much work and not enough stretching. It'll heal.

Oh, darling, I hope you feel better soon!

Can't eat cake, can only use rowing machine one-armed ;-) Just needs rest ... I'm going to bugger my left at this rate ;-)

Oh poor you! Perhaps the time has come to experiment with voice recognition software?

I haven't actually made a post, so I'm not entitled to a response, but I'll take "That's because you're smarter than them", because I find it an eternally comforting maxim, and "It's not as though it's real cricket". Thanks!

I choose: Skandar!

Just because. *shrugs*

Hope your arm gets well soon. It'll be like a vacation.

*big hugs* hope you get better soon! and when you do, i'd love to hear more about this bowen therapy :D

Brammers' answer is, 'It's not as though it's real cricket'.
My question being, 'Have you seen the England side in the ODIs since Brown G cursed them w his support?'

Also w/r/t un- or sur-real cricket, see my latest post. (And the answer involving Broad S is NOT, 'Is that Tom Felton?')

W/r/t the arm, 'Oh, I'm so sorry': best wishes and may you have a medically implausible swift recovery.

Ooo - Bowen technique. Had that once from someone who was training. For a gentle technique she managed to dislocate my coccyx very effectively!
Kareinakareina on September 15th, 2009 05:28 pm (UTC)
Get better soon!

As to getting the story written--would it be easier to do one-handed editing? You could use voice recognition software to "type" it, and then clean up the text to say what you said and now what the program heard...
