* dermatitis on my palms have gotten pretty bad, thick layer of itchy rashy skin. i think i'm getting it from the vinyl bicycle handlebar grips. i washed the grips yesterday with detergent and warm water, but i don't know if it'll do anything. i was thinking about taping the grips, but have now resorted to wearing bicycle gloves which i think look pretentious but if it can prevent additional outbreaks on my hands i'm willing to risk it.
* new bedsheets arrived; NY hotel deluxe 300 thread 100% cotton bed sheet set ($9.99 twin burgundy; $16.99 queen baby blue); doesn't feel as luxurious as my target-purchased threshold organic cotton 325 thread ($23)
* dr.chan called me at 7:30pm, asking me how i was doing
