If eyes could bleed...

Mine would be right now. I have one of the most boring tasks ever to complete at work.

We recently had a major overhaul of our website, which now requires me to look at the code for every single page and edit it. Really. I’ve almost put myself to sleep. And I’m hating whoever wrote these pages in the first place.

Also, I am sunburnt. Today is the first day that I haven’t had to take aspirin for the pain. I went canoing with the Sierra Club‘s Inner City Outings on Saturday. It was a lot of fun, however, when I left the house in the morning it was cold and overcast. It turned into a beautiful day, complete with sunshine and clear skies and warm. No sunscreen for me, though. I am so glad that I was wearing a t-shirt (not a tank top) and pants (not shorts), so the area burnt has been kept to a minimum. Just my arms. I think the right one is going to blister and peel, and it’s going to be gross.

Sunday I felt awful – I had forgotten how sick I can get when I am exposed to too much sun. Nauseated, tired, dehydrated, general all-over ickiness. Plus, for the first 2/3rd of the day, I was cold, like, really cold. Only towards the evening did I get over that and finally warm up. (Of course, then I was too warm.) So, I called in sick for my shift at the Bridge. I probably could have gone, but I just felt like poop and didn’t think I could give it 100%, and they deserved that.

Really, there’s not much more to say. I’m just stalling. I don’t want to go back to editing code. You can’t make me. I’d like to say there isn’t enough money in the world, but I know what my checkbook looks like.
