ooops  
'kay, I totally forgot that the list I'm working on at work mostly involves me clicking on links and verifying the PDFs open. Clicking. With the mouse. Which I can't do left handed. Wonderful.

And now I've just found out that we've got a placement student visiting today and I have to spend an hour with her talking about electronic journals. Every other supervisor bar one is spending a half hour. How come I drew the short straw here?

Forgot my headphones this morning (they're in my other jacket) so I'm judging the AVAs at a really low volume and hoping like hell no one notices!

See, I'm in pain, positive attitude has more or less gone out the window. *shakes head* I'll be fine once my hand's sorted and I can actually do stuff again. Now I'm going to go and try to find an hour's worth of material about my job that won't bore this girl to tears.

I looked, but I couldn't find how you hurt your hand! I hope it feels much better soon.

I had to switch to lefthanded mousing a while back because of neck and shoulder problems, and you can get used to it. And it has the bonus of driving people crazy when they try to use your computer. (Tech support, in my case.)

I'm still not entirely sure what it was I did to my hand - I was moving furniture at the weekend and I've probably hit it at some point, I just can't figure out why it hurts so much now and yet I didn't feel it happening at the time. Definitely odd!

I'm using a trackball mouse at work, which is really difficult to use left-handed - I always feel really bad when the IT guy has to come down and fix my computer because he is left handed. :)

Hey Mara! (: I hope that your hand gets to feeling better soon. And I'm sorry to hear that you hurt it.

It's either starting to feel better or my pain threshold has increased! The burise is also now a muddy colour rather than the bright purple it was on Sunday, so hopefully it's on the mend!

I suddenly feel very lucky that, because my mother is left-handed and she taught me to use the computer, I use my left hand to work the mouse...

I sure hope your hand heals soon!

It's a trackball mouse I have at work which I can't use lefthanded. Sucks really, but hopefully it'll be healed soon. The bruise is fading a little so *fingers crossed*, only not...
