From the it's-my-blog-and-I'll-blog-if-I-blog-bloggity-want-to file: my DVD remote has healed itself! Which isn't a big deal, but now I can use subtitles and set the clock and fast-forward without getting up every time (yay). So, really, it is a big deal (yay). The remote was dead for about a year, but suddenly now is healed.
My grandfather, whom I never met, but many of whose expressions live on in various ways, apparently once coined the term "paramechanosis," meaning the diagnosed disease of inanimate objects that later get better by themselves. Clear case of paramechanosis here.
