running, bomb tech

Whee!

Just spent over 2 hours on the phone with sionainn, relating Tales of Terror (including the Can of Beans Shawn Story).

It's so nice to hear a genuine Alaskan accent again. Anyone who comes from a region without a pronounced accent, who has left it, knows how it feels, I think -- you leave, and everybody sounds a little weird, but because it's not a broad enough accent to be noticed by most, you can't quite put your finger on how it is, but when you hear someone from home, they sound right in a way that no one else does...

Ow. Owwwwww.

Sometime between Tuesday and last night, I think I pulled a muscle or something. My anatomy's rusty, so I can't name it, but it's one of those muscles that gets used while walking, on the outside of the hip. So I'm walking around feeling like my butt's broken or something.

Pain. Pain and suffering. Owww.
