* I've been in mild to moderate pain from Allergic Reaction Like Whoa for 'bout a week now. Getting worse. It's a delayed hypersensitivity reaction to the adhesive and/or gel on the electrodes for the heart monitor. "Not 'normal', but 'common'," docorion says. I have circular welts where those things have been. You can feel them through my shirt, even. (I imagine I look like an inhabitant of Spatterjay (Neal Asher's The Skinner).) They hurt and sting and ache and they itch like crazy. And I have another week on the monitor. I'm not wearing it today - giving my skin a break.
* I typed minotaur again.
* I'm going to go have a colloidal oatmeal bath.
