And lo, it was the longest day ever.

Is it just me, or is today dragging by for everyone? I spoke to Deals on the phone about an hour ago, and it feels like yesterday. A minute ago, I thought to myself that I could use more caffeine but shouldn’t drink it late in the day, and then I realized that it’s not even 1:30 yet. On the plus side, I have lots of time to get work done today, which is good because I’m behind and moving at the pace of . . . something slow (my brain is also moving slowly today). On the downside, although I only have a little over 3 hours left in my work day, it will feel like 8.

Y’all, I have a cut on my finger that is starting to look a little puffy. I am concerned because (a) I cut myself with my own fingernail, and (b) I cut myself with my own fingernail. By (a) I mean that I am concerned that I have razor-like fingernails (I knew they were strong and therefore not inclined to break; I did not know I could use them to clip coupons and shave my legs). And by (b) I mean that I am concerned because what could I have had on my fingernail that would cause a cut made by it to look all red and puffy? Don’t say fungus.

Don’t say tetanus, either.

You should think about taking another trip to the minor urgent care clinic this evening. Seriously.

Also, possibly gangrene. Or just a really, really nasty infection. Is it oozing?

yeah, believe me, I feel your pain.

What if you're not supposed to have caffeine??!! What if you feel OH SO guilty for just having a few sips of caffeine?

Then how bad would it be?

Yeah. Thankfully I wasn't addicted, but I do miss it.

It's *not* oozing. That I would have taken care of. It's only slightly red.

AM--my coworker is expecting, and she is dying for Starbucks. I feel so bad slinking out of the office to get it and then smuggling it back in. I don't know what I'd do in y'all's situation. But it's worth it. . . right?
