i am an unrequited astronomer, pretend patient, gentle adventurer, pedal enthusiast, recovering calligrapher, occasional thespian and unfinished poet living in portland, oregon. contacting me via email is usually a good idea.
2:35 AM: is this thing on?
since i'm not actually posting much, let me show you what dang got for christmas. it makes me even more grateful for my own gifts, even the bavarian-girl-holding-a-giant-pretzel ringbox. also, note his spanky new wordpress blog!
also, i picked up a wireless mouse to use with the laptop: i hate adding clutter like that, especially since i don't really have desk to use it on. but the trackpad has done damage to the nerve endings in my index finger, making it burn even when i'm not using the trackpad. i switched fingers at that point, but once i noticed the same symptoms developing in my middle finger, i bought a mouse. i hope it helps, but at this point i'd be happy if it didn't hurt.
I cleaned up a baking soda spill with the little snorting piglet vacuum. It was handy.
