cast update - let me out

My (unbroken) wrist is just beginning to show the first snap crackle pop of repetitive stress, probably a combination of trying not to use the computer, then cracking and doing lots. I can do a bit of two-handed typing, but between twinges, aiming problems and hitting capslock with my cast (ANNOYING) I'm mostly on one hand for everything.

Half term excitements included meeting my new niece (a voyage of discovery into one-handed baby holding methods) and visiting the Russian Constructivists at the Tate Modern.

All the books had been bolted to the beds in the Turbine Hall, which timscience felt changed the nature of the piece, tainting it with appropriation. I found a copy of The Drowned World, struggled into a reading position, and turned to the party in the flooded hotel, the bit with the crocodiles. When I looked up, there were children watching me -- my cast was propped at an odd angle, probably looked strange. It comes off tomorrow, I can't wait.

pretty revolting


elbow still bruised


it comes off tomorrow

I wanted to see that but the book are bolted to the beds? That's just wrong.

books in bondage!
A lot of the bits of wire aren't even really long enough to read the books either

Re: books in bondage!
I felt oddly culturally imperialised. If that's the word.
