The problem was my rechargeable batteries were dead, but as luck would have it, I had 4 AA with a green charge light. Woo.
It lied. They were dead too. So now I think the one charge case may be broken somehow. I've got two of the cases and the base can hold two. But the second case always ends up blinking orange and the batteries are still dead.
*sigh* Dead batteries. I'll never get the exact same light with the blossoms at just the perfect stage. Oh well.
Right arm is still out of whack.I don't know how long it's going to stay like this. The weird perception that one way I measure my life is in terms of what was hurting when... Sometimes it's easier to forget than others.
I'll leave you with South Park - S3E17 statement:
