You want a blogger with a slow hand…

Ladies and gentlemen, please give us a hand.jpg…actually, no, you don’t, but unfortunately that’s where FishbowlNY is at right now: we’ve developed a touch of carpal tunnel and various doctor-types and chiding friends have advised us to go a little easy on the keyboard. Sorry that posting has been lighter than usual – it’s only temporary! Please don’t leave us, we can’t bear to be alone.

In the meantime, check out the handy link below for information on carpal tunnel syndrome and repetetive stress disorder. Forewarned is forearmed – and who couldn’t use four arms? Especially when two of them are all gimpy.
