Weird bruise

I've had this weird dark splotch (two, actually) on my hand since, well, I don't know when--I first noticed last Thursday night. I don't know what it is, and it's starting to freak me out.

(n.b.: photo adjusted slightly to compensate for weird lighting that didn't show the "bruise" in its full glory.)

At first I assumed it was a bruise, but (1) it doesn't hurt, at all; (2) it hasn't changed color since I first noticed it--no yellowing or greening or purpling or anything, just liver-spot brown; and (3) it's been a full four days! Wouldn't you think that a 4-day old painless bruise would have disappeared by now, or at least changed color a little bit? Do I have a huge liver spot? Some weird disease? The hiv?

Ah!

Your bruises (surely the result of 8000 flash cards) match mine! However, mine surround my elbows/knees/wrists and are the result of what has now affectionately been alternatively labeled "elbow-gate" or "the incident". :o) I love your blog!

You are taking procrastination to a whole new level, my friend. Taking pictures of your own bruises so you can post them on your blog.... I can't believe I didn't think of it myself!

Whatever, what if it's deadly?!? I need an Amber Alert for my hand--someone call in!
