the state of me

I'm very behind on responding to comments and people's reviews of Wrath, and I was hoping to catch up tonight, but I managed to burn my hand while cooking dinner in a way that makes typing extremely painful. So I expect I won't be responding much to anything for a couple of days--especially since it turns out I am glacially slow at one-handed typing. Sorry!

Oh, gosh, you poor Baby! Have your hand in ice water - did you know that? The kinetic energy imparted to the molecules in the muscle keeps burning the tissue from within, unless you bleed off the heat.

Thanks for the advice. That's good to know.

Oh no! I'm so sorry -- I hope you're not badly hurt? (Burned your hand in the sense of 'OUCH' or burned your hand in the sense of 'had to go to a hospital'?)

Feel better, you marvelous person you. *hugs*

2d degree across all the knuckles of my left hand. It's better after icing them for a few hours, but hurts to bend. (So not hospital serious, just more serious than most of my kitchen accidents. I managed to brush the heating coil in the oven--I'm glad it wasn't worse, I guess.)

At least it wasn't my dominant hand, but typing one-handed is RLY slow for me.

Thanks for the hugs!

Thanks so much, hon! Loved the drabbles, btw, and will comment more when I can type a little faster.

Well, ice has helped a lot, but bending them hurts. And one-handed typing reminds me of being 12 and 1st learning the keyboard--every key takes 5 seconds to locate. Very inefficient, and annoying because I finally had time and wanted to talk about Wrath.

Too bad you can't comment by voicepost!

Well, maybe it'll be better in the a.m. Thanks for the hugs.

Ohh, yes, very annoying! So much to say about Wrath!

I haven't had a lot of time either as I have a HORRENDOUS work situation, but I'm clawing back LJ time, desperately.

I'm much better today--it doesn't even hurt to type, though the scar looks really horrendous. (Hopefully it will fade)

I hope your work situation gets better soon.

Oh, maybe you should try and get some cream from a chemist. My mum burnt her hand badly and got a bad scar but apparently there is some stuff that really helps them fade if you start early.

Work bad.

Yes, that sounds like a good idea, especially since the skin there is starting to be painful. (I think maybe I overused the hand a little yesterday in my joy at being able to type again).

I'm posting a comment just to make you suffer by having to reply.


ALSO BECAUSE I CARE. ♥

You are evil, and must be destroyed. [Sorry, I was just rewatching the end of Steel Magnolias last night, and that has always been my favorite line.]

I would say more about your evilosity, but it doesn't hurt to type today, so since your wicked plan has been foiled, I will simply gloat silently. :D

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ you

This is why I avoid cooking at all costs - it's VERY dangerous. *nods*

I hope you're healing well, Nora (and can dial for carry-out).

It is, definitely! (Though I was just heating a frozen pizza--you would think at my advanced age I would have figured out the high tech world of hot pads!)

I actually feel much better today, though I have an impressive scar.

Just wanted to wish you well, and that the healing doesn't hurt too much. And no need to reply to this comment. *hugs again*

Thanks! *Hugs back* The pain is mostly gone today, so no worries.
