injury report

well I can't wear any rings on that hand yet but the continuous slathering with aloe has made the scalds stop hurting entirely and in fact I don't have bandaids on today and I can still reach into my pocket. yesterday with bandaids I couldn't do that.

boy what a dumb thing to do. now I know not to overfill a french press. I guess I underestimated the total volume that the pressy part takes up.

I have to write a syllabus today. it may involve some semi-recreational reading in that I have to find readings for them out of a reader full of all sorts of things. I guess there will be no particular theme to the class but maybe I can make something up out of the materials I've been given. I'm allowed to assign reading not in the reader too, but why make the field of possibilities larger when you really need to be slimming them down.

yeah. well alright. to work I suppose.

Seems like it would hurt desperately. I'm glad the aloe is helping.

yesterday--that is, the day I did it--it hurt like a little angel of death had visited my right hand until I got the aloe on it and then it was as though I had plunged my hand into a cool bath of brand new skin.

I put more on every chance I had today and although it sometimes looks frightful with the reds and the slight tinge of purple in that one crease it feels fine.

don't burn units use this stuff? surely they do.

i really didn't know aloe worked that well. i used to have an aloe plant. the pets have made it impossible to keep houseplants, although maybe a hanging one could work, since aloe doesn't need to be watered much.
i don't drink coffee anymore, but was too chicken to get a french press- i'd read somewhere that they can explode if you use the wrong grind, but i'm sure that was an exaggeration. still, scary coffee pot.

well pouring boiling water into a beaker--which is basically what you do with a french press--should be approached with proper precautions. I really didn't think about the amount of empty beaker I needed to leave.

I could sue I suppose but it hasn't cost me anything other than mental anguish over how my insurance would cover a visit to the emergency room in another state.
