Set Phasers to Stun...and Clocks Forward

Why are we still doing this?  I have not worn a watch since October.  No, wait.  I did wear one on my right wrist while on vacation.  You kinda need to be on time when planes, buses, and boats leave.  Why have I not worn a watch, you ask? Well, there was that little incident that made it a little difficult to put on a watch.  The bracelet style bands were set to normal human wrist sizes and the buckle style bands barely fit around my swollen wrist.  Yeah, that is how big my wrist got, the left (injured) wrist still looks a little bigger than the right.

Ah, but you say the bone has been healed for a few weeks now, everything should be good to go.  Yes, the bone is healed and the wrist is back to normal human size.  But one day, I went to put on my favourite watch...also titanium...and I noticed that since I have not worn it in so long, it was still on Daylight Savings Time. 

Am I that lazy to not wear a watch, because I am too lazy to set my watches to the right time, knowing that in a month or two I would have to set them all back (or forward in this case), and rather wait until today to start wearing watches again?  Yes, I am that lazy.  Also, a watch might get in the way of wrist exercises I do.  Another reason, it hides the cool scar I have.

Now that we have to set our clocks and watches, again.  I guess I can start wearing them.

Titanium is 22 on the Periodic Table of Elements

Twenty two weeks of having titanium screwed into my bone.  Pretty awesome!

It says Titanium, but looks like wood to me.

Last night I got a comment on here...yeah, someone else actually reads this.  How she found this place, I have no idea.  Anyways health food soul recently had surgery to repair a broken wrist.  Same wrist and pretty much the same break and hardware was installed. She has one more screw at the top of her implant...but I have a slightly larger plate.  I think we have about the same amount of titanium in mounted to our left radius.  I have a new Titianium Friend!

She broke her wrist whilst snowboarding, I did it while playing roller hockey.  Funny, her sports injury is based on the streets and brought to the cold...while my sports injury is based in the cold and brought to the streets. You can read her 'how it happened' right HERE.  She also has a great blog about Bone Food.  Wish I knew some of that stuff about twenty weeks ago.

Oh, you can see her post about her surgery and cool hardware HERE.  She has great X-rays of her hardware.  I wonder if she just has a great camera, or she actually has the physical X-rays.  Maybe I should ask the doctor for copies of mine.  They are $15 a copy, so I just took pictures.

HealthFoodSoul, if you are reading this, I wish you a speedy recovery.  I will be checking for updates on your blog...I want to see some scar pictures.

If you want to experience my surgery, you can start here.
