Well, I spent most of today in bed, which seems to have helped me quite a bit. Still, the hunched-over-my-desk posture required for transcribing kills. But I think there's a positive angle to this: if I ever find myself complaining about the lamentable plight of the beleaguered doctoral student and someone sardonically asks "does it really hurt so badly?" I can respond "Aye, it does. Marry, it does!" Of course, this is assuming I am complaining to some old salt aboard a schooner. (Note to self: find out where they sell schooner tickets).
For tomorrow: More of the same.
