A Burn

This recliner company doesn't have heat and vibration anymore, so I use a heating pad in the chair. Last night it felt a bit hot in one place but I didn't want to move Spirit on my lap so I could move the heating pad. After I came over here and wrote the post, the heat was still there so I put my hand up under my top and there's a big blister -- second degree burn -- there. And right above it, scabs. I'd been waking up some mornings with what looked like a mole under my fingertips and open skin. It's itchy around that area so the next time I saw my primary, I was going to ask to see the dermatologist. It's time for the regular scan, anyway, and I thought if she took this mole off, then I wouldn't keep taking it off myself. And now it turns out to be burns from the heating pad. It's just one part of it that hurts and normally if it does hurt, I move that part. But maybe I should get a new heating pad. Today the blister is a bit less full, but still has fluid in it.

After I was online last night, I went to bed at 3:30am to read. I planned to read until 5am, but read until 6am. I went right to sleep and didn't set the alarm so I woke up at 4:30pm. I marked next week's TV Guide, went through the coupons, and made the grocery list for Monday. I really hope they have the kitty litter. Lasting the whole week with what the big kitties have will be very difficult.

I realized that the food machine doesn't know what date it is -- so either I reset all three times, or the cats just get food an hour later than now, compared to my time. I'm letting them get it later.

Maryland is massively Democratic, so the run for governor isn't that big a problem. Unless, Tuesday afternoon, a robocall goes to 50,000 Democratic voters and tells them that the Democratic governor has already won, so they don't have to go vote. The firm that did it says it was counter-intuitive, meant to get Republicans out. Yeah, right. The Maryland AG is investigating to see if the call was fraud and voter intimidation, which are both illegal.

I see scooters around a few times a week, but apparently there's a lot of them at colleges. A Maryland football player got both of his legs broken recently -- no helmet, no light, but the right of way -- when a woman drove across in front of him. The coaches would like to ban the scooters, but can't. A school officer at UW-Madison set up rules, found in a pamphlet and online, and they're having a lot fewer accidents.
