[Current Mood |Sore-fingery]

On Sunday I managed to cut the second finger of my right hand on a sheet of paper. Nothing serious or life-threatening but it did take a while to stop bleeding and it's right at the end so hard to get a plaster (band-aid) to stick over it.

Today I'm finding out that I'm not a two finger typist. :)

Peace

I'm sorry to hear about your wound, but I have to admit that the phrase "Sore-fingery" was one that I had not heard before. :-D

Well it is how I'm feeling :) It wasn't a finger I thought I did all that much with ... well not a work anyway ;)

Peace

I can type with 1 finger pretty fast, shall I teach you? :-)

:P
I'm mousing [is there such a word?] more than usual to make up for it.

Thanks for your offer, but I think I can cope typing without it for a while. There are only a few things I usually use that finger for outside of typing and I'm sure I'll manage by using my other hand ... or something ;)

mousing [is there such a word?]

Oh, yes, several meanings but none meaning "Using the mouse as opposed to the keyboard for entering data into a computer system".

Ta, I'm taking care of it ... just looking for an arm sling for it :) It's actually qyite funny watching me type with the finger pointing straight out trying not to use it for typing.

I think the metup is officially canceled through not enough numbers - I'll have to see who else might be going.

Peace

Paper should have a warning on it

Hi Peter,

I could go if I know one or two other people are
going otherwise I won't bother.

Oh, paper cuts, ouch! Hurts just thinking about them!

Re: Paper should have a warning on it

I'm tempted not to 'cos I'll be driving there and back from cardiff ... about 4 or 5 hours!

My, your keeping right up to the minute there ... or is the LJ mail notifications system being slow?

The finger's a lot less sore today - if I pull the two sides apart I can see down to a lower layer of skin - no wait, that was this morning when I got up and now the two bits don't seem to want to pull apart and it doesn't hurt to press on it.
[Has that freaked you out yet? :) ]

So, yes it's actually getting better and I'm just being a wimp :)
