1am: Begin reading 'Yark Yark: A Kobolds Tale of A Search for True Love Below the Surface.'
5am: Finish reading 'Yark Yark: A Kobolds Tale of A Search for True Love Below the Surface.'
6:30: Complain to Aaron (not THAT Aaron) d'Cannith, the moment he enters the room, about 'Yark Yark: A Kobolds Tale of A Search for True Love Below the Surface,' for suggesting and offering such a God awful book. In no way are the love scenes even remotely believable, and seriously, a kobold with an elf?
7am: Aaron realizes his adamantine drimmel beetle is missing and leaves to find it. I broke it accidently last night, while playing with it, and tossed it into the acid bath so he wouldn't find out. Besides, I didn't mean to break it and those things look expensive! No way am I having that added to my bill.
7:40am: Aaron returns with a different beetle and then helps me into the acid bath. I can feel pieces of the old beetle at the bottom of the tub. Gross.
8am: Out of the bath. Aaron begins drilling the plating off my back. The acid bathes help raise the plates and makes them easier to remove.
10:20am: All plates protecting nervous system are removed. Three shards the size of walnuts are visible. Four more smaller shards have incased themselves in a web of nerve cords.
11am: Aaron sets drimmel beetle to work, it digs into the live wood surrounding one of the larger shards. Aaron then goes to lunch. He forgets to pull my duffel bag closer so I can reach it.
11:20am: Bad news: Trying to reach my duffel I feel off the table. Good news: I can reach my duffel now!
12:30pm: Aarons returns to see me lying on the floor, on my back. He takes my lute away, not amused by my singing, 'Woe am I the turtle.' I thought it was kind of funny, considering.
1pm: Back onto the table and safely strapped in. No more falling. Two new beatles are now digging little houses inside my back. They itch. Aaron works on my new legs. He's annoyed so I stop singing.
3pm: A messenger comes for Aaron. Foundry meeting, looks like. Aaron leaves with the messenger.
6pm: Found a pencil! Not so bored.
7pm: Aarong returns, along with Skipbo. Aaron doesn't approve of my artistic representation of his Cannith ViceRoy that I've drawn on the lab wall, beside my table. Skipbo seems to like it. Aaron leaves us alone while Skipbo prestidigitats the drawing away, but only after resetting the beatles. They've dug out one of the shards.
8:30pm: Skipbo finishes giving her weekly report from the Coin Lords and the Guild. Everything appears to be under control.
9pm:After skibo has left Aaron returns and using a scalpel removes another walnut of a shard. This one hurts. He mends the hole the shard left behind. Looks like it was attached to a fluid chamber.
10:30pm: Aaron finished up for the night by setting the beatles to the final large shard. The smaller shards will have to be carefully removed tomorrow. Before he goes he checks my left eye socket. Looks like the corruption has stopped spreading. Aaron gives me another book 'Mabar: Realm of Darkness,'and then wishes me good night.
10:45pm: Aaron turned the lights off... The irony of the book's title does not escape me....
1am: .....I've got to stop playing with these beatles...
