Leapdragon 2016 - Aron Hsiao Was Here

Morning surprises  §

Okay, it’s gonna be one of those weeks.

There is a shit-ton to do.
All classes are back in session.
Yesterday I developed a back ache and was already annoyed by that. My alarm did not wake me up, which means I am already running late.

Now in waking I have found two additional things that promise to make today “Grrrrrr-eat!”

First: I seem to have a fairly solid stomach ache that feels like it might decide to be with me all day.

Second: The I-House heating system was running full New York tilt last night despite its being relatively warm out. As a result, it was very hot inside when I got home last night, so I opened the window and slept with my head at that end of the bed to get as much outside air as possible. My hand must have strayed to the heater while I slept because this morning I have a rather grotesque and painful (if thankfully not severe) burn down the length of my little finger.

So, to recap: Too much to do. Back hurts. Stomach hurts. Hand hurts. Late for work. Cheerful as hell.

Other titles considered for this entry:

“Hark the Hurting of the Hand”
“More Smarts in my Little Finger”
“Bernie Mac and the Burn Attack”
“Busy Fingers and the the Pain that Lingers”

I can’t complain too much, though. Yesterday was pretty damn good.
