eww, blood.

I spent the day helping my older brother (Mike) move into his new house. By the end of it, I think I'm a little worse for wear.

I broke skin three times during the day, had my wrist give way once (it soon recovered) and I have the usual array of sore muscles, and various other scratches that match.

Thr first one was just some torn skin on the back of my right hand. Nothing big, it turned red and stung - the most trivial of the three skin-breaks.

The second was the most serious of that lot. We had unpacked a bookcase at his (Mike) new place, and had it sitting on the side of the road. The wind then decided it would pick that moment to pick up, and hit the bookcase face on. It teetered and then started to fall. Seeing this and being nearby, I lunged forward to catch it. And catch it I did ... on one arm. It landed on the bone.

It wasn't that heavy, but my arm did start to go numb for a short while. That's when I noticed that it was bleeding. Seems that what had felt to me as a solid blow, was more of a graze. It wasn't too bad, and the bleeding was very minimal, but I stuck a bandaid thing over it to keep the dirt out - then proceeded to keep on bumping it all day.

How I broke skin the third time is beyond me. After we had finished, I was sitting down, and noticed that almost every other ache I had, my thumb had decided to join in. I glanced down at it, and was rather alarmed to discover that I had more blood on my thumb then I would of liked (, which is none).

My left wrist also gave way when we were lifting a chest of draws into the back of the truck. I went easy on it for ten minutes and it was fine.

The rest of the sores, both muscular and scratches just kinda blend into one big ouch.

Unfortunately the fun of the day didn't end there. I was catching the train back home, so Mike dropped me off at the station near him, and gave me $50 to pay for the ticket. Way too much considering the ticket would of cost me about 5 bucks. (In hindsight I think it was because it was the smallest note he had on him.)

Arriving on the station, I searched and failed to find a ticket seller. This meant that I was had to use the machine - something I usually prefer to do. However the catch is that the machine only gives $20 worth of change. That means it's almost $30 down the drain.

But it wasn't my money, so It didn't really matter to me that much. Waltzing up to the machine, I punched in where I wanted to go, took a good look at the $50 note, and stuck it in. The machine took it, thought for a moment and then spat it back out at me - claiming that it didn't have enough money to give me change!

This left me in quite a situation. Here I was willing to waist 30 damn bucks in order to get a ticket, but the stupid machine wouldn't let me buy it. The $50 was all I had on me, so I had no way to buy the ticket. As neither of the stations had ticket barriers, I decided to just take the train and hope that Ticket-Inspectors wouldn't turn up.

They didn't and I got off the train with the full $50. I'm going to see my brother again later tonight, and I’m hoping he won’t ask for his change. He probably will, and I probably should give it to him. However I'm also tempted to make my way up to the shops and spend the equivalent money of the train fare on Coke.

And on the last note for the day, my computer doesn't have any sound for the time being. My brothers needed the internal modem out of it, which is a part of my sound card. When we got there they checked it out, and turns out that it wouldn't work in the box they were making - so I could have it back. However I wasn't about to make my way back on the train with the soundcard sticking out of my pocket. So I have to wait until I see my brother later tonight to get it back, and re-install it.

-----------------------

Hmm, that was a rather large post. Much longer then I had originally intended. I need to stop typing now for a bit - my fingers are hurting

Remember to back up everything.

I only made that mistake once. You only need to make that mistake once.

(Severman) Hey "arse" isnt a word
You know, I can ignore the idiots who seem to think that 'ass' means 'arse'. I can deal with it and ignore it. But trying to tell me that 'arse' isn't a real word?

Such stupidity should not be allowed to live.

I'm sure I've had that argument with you
I know I've had it with Cad
who claimed he prnounced both words the same way, which I find endlessly confusing

Either way, it is a word and ass and arse have two sublt ena ddifferent meanings that most seem unable to grasp

No, that's "just-woken-up-slur".

Slight difference between it and drunk-slur.

They're both slang and insultive.

I know of no such people

if they are foreign perhaps I'd let them off

but those have a huge difference

Yes, heaven forbid they don't know the inns and outs of a foreign culture's slang...

Ass:
1. a donkey
2. Buttocks, American
3. A person displaying bad behavior. (see a**hole.)

Arse:
1. Buttocks, British
2. word used in certain British phrases: I couldn't be arsed to do it.

possibly also used in the sense of ass 3, but I haven't seen it.

Arsehole. Also known as an anus. That's why it's an insult.

Of course, if somebody who knows better than me wants to post, I reserve the right to be wrong.

Let's not loose track of the original point here.

People who seem to think that 'arse' is just a made up word.
