Sort of ironic that this week’s blog topic on Word Whores is about time, since that seems to be the one thing I just don’t have enough of. I hesitate to use the word burn-out to describe my feelings at the moment, but there it is. And it seems silly to talk about it sometimes – there’s always someone who has it harder.

Next time I’ll see if he can’t get a shot with a regular camera so you can see me in all my glory.) Yes, that needle is sitting on the bone. Yea, it doth sucketh mightily. So, yeah. It hurts like a bitch. The numbing stuff hasn’t quite worn off yet, so I suspect things will be a bit worse later on tonight or tomorrow. And round two starts in two week. Huzzah!… Read more
