08:29 pm - Objects and me
Fifteen months ago I bought a water pic. I used it for the first time last night. (There needs to be a word for 'phobia about reading the instructions pertaining to a new gadget.') It's lots of splashy fun but does not, as my brother averred, remove all the stuff under the bridge that flossing doesn't get. Flossing may not get it but my mini-bottle brushes (in four graded sizes) do.

Years and years ago I bought a slanket which I rarely usedl, since it lacks the basic requirement for 'sitting in coldish room and reading', which is a hood. If I don't need a hood when I'm reading then the room is warm enough that I don't need a slanket either. Discovered what slankets are perfect for is upper body/ neck covering in bed, where head warmth is already provided by my hoodie. Warm and light and not the heavy tangled thing that blankets become, or even terrycloth sheets. Shall retire the latter until the summer.

My run of mobility luck gave out today. Lower back ached and ached and would not be stretched out or give in to muscle relaxants and the heat-pack bandages that in the past have silenced muscles for hours. So walking hurt, though no more than it did all summer and fall. The morning's grim dankness and wet if shallow snow didn't help, but there are rumours of highs of 6 tomorrow, so I can bike to work at least.

I will cross my fingers for warmer weather and less back pain.

I also got your Christmas card today. Thank you! It's magnificent. :)

Thank you.

And yes, Gorey seems to have anticipated many of our present tastes.

I hope you fee better with the warmer weather. I loved the water pic, mostly because I could shoot water across the room at my brother. I'm not sure it's useful for much else.

It's certainly messier than advertised. OTOH I use it and then double-check with the bottle brushes, and there's never anything left. So it's economic at least.
