When the Bug Bites ...

You may have been wondering where I've been. I'm here, back from Oaxaca, but I brought a little something back with me that's kept me away from First Draft -- a nasty bug bite that turned much of my right arm into an Italian salami and caused the very efficient emergency room doctors at Marin General to shoot me full of antibiotics and encase the arm in plaster wrap.

I type lousy enough with two hands, so forget one.

The cast is off now for a few hours, a sign of progress, but I need to keep the arm mostly still so blogging will be light in the next few days.

What bit me? I have no idea, except that it wasn't one of the scorpions, black widows, various varieties of wasps or fire ants that live around (and sometimes in) the house.

Hasta pronto. Ojala.
