|An Owie And A Laugh|
August 7, 2008
Showers and thunderstorms were predicted for today, but it turned out to be a lovely day. I sat outside with Panache for awhile when I came home from work.
Karen and Scott left a few minutes ago....they came over to sample my homemade ice cream. They pronounced it very good. We finished it off, too.
I tracked the defective ice cream maker I sent back, and saw that it was delivered today. Hopefully, they'll send a replacement soon. And hopefully, that one will work.
I had a kitchen mishap this evening, and burnt my fingers. I was boiling water for ravioli. I put a too-large lid on the pot, while I fished around in the cupboard for the right pot lid. When I went to take the too big one off, I 'forgot' that it was large enough to have hung over the pot and gotten close to the gas burner. I picked it up off the pot by the knob, but then went to grab the edge of the lid to put it away. Big mistake.
I managed to burn all four fingers of my right hand. The pad of my ring finger got the brunt of it...it's got a nasty blister. The middle finger has a smaller blister, and my pinkie only got a first degree burn. My index finger isn't too bad, either, though there's a mark where I grabbed the lip of the pot lid. Not one of my better moments, and despite keeping ice on my fingers, they still burn (and typing isn't helping)
But I'll live, and I'm lucky it wasn't more serious.
On a lighter note, the following sign was posted in each of the two staff bathrooms at work today:
PLEASE DO NOT FLUSH FEMININE HYGIENE PRODUCTS
--OR ANYTHING OTHER THAN TOILET PAPER--
DOWN THE TOILETS
*raises eyebrow* Are they sure they really mean NOTHING but toilet paper???????
