1) talking to a video camera is an unbelievable awkward-awareness amplifier. I don't think I'll ever be comfortable doing it, but I'm going to make an effort to try to get more so. An Adam Savage I'll never be, but maybe with some practice I can at least be a Jamie Hyneman.
2) yesterday I spent a half hour playing tetris for the first time since that business with my arms a while back. This brought two (more) things to my attention:
a) I'm really out of practice. It took quite some time to get back up to my (still a bit slower) post-bidirectional-rotation speed. I am somewhat comforted that bidirectional rotation was not something I had to give specific thought to; it just sort of happened.
b) I may have to forego any tetris action in the future. It may just be coincidental, but the inflammation level of both wrists was a bit higher than "normal" -- or, what passes as normal since that trouble a while back, anyway. I'll have to do a little experimentation to see if there is a causatory relationship here, but I'm worried that button-oriented gaming may be outside the feeble grasp of my age-addled body.
