Um..you know if you drop something at your desk....

And you try to catch it with your knees before it falls on the ground?

Well...i kind of did it...when i was trimming my cuticles..and instead of it falling straight down...it lands between my legs..and i stabbed my thigh!!

Yes folks..this is intelligence right here!

*hops around on one leg*

Only a teeny bit of bleeding but it was right next to a vein (i can see the blue) and well...if we were doing a puppet show, i could make it into a teeny tiny moving mouth! *flapflap*


Ok did i mention it hit 108f today and my brain is frizzled

Hehe my owie

Um...air conditioning. But it only really cools the kitchen/lounge where it is in the wall, the rest of the house is still warm. Tomorrow is a public holiday, but Tristan and i are going to go out to one of the shopping centres to stay cool for a few hours where it's always cold!

Ow that must have really hurt. I once tried to tighten a screw on my scissors with a knife sliced my finger right open cause the knife sliped. Wasn't a very smart thing to do.

Ouch! I've done a few things like that. One time I was trying to poke a hole in a photo holder with a pair of scissors, my hand slipped and the scissors went through my finger... I have a nice scar now.

Ouch! I've done stuff like that too. You should record your puppet show and place it on YouTube!

Ouch...that must've been one of those "why on earth did I do that?" moments

I had one of those when I was carrying a 12x12x3/4 steel plate (about 35-45lbs) and it slipped out of my grip and I thought that I could bring my knee up to steady it. Well, it was moving pretty quick when the sharp corner connected with my knee. The bruise lasted for a good couple of weeks.

Emma? I need some of that heat. 30 degrees(F) should be sufficient to make both of us comfortable.

Take it all! I'd happily live with 9 instead of 39 today =( And next week isn't any better. What a stinking hot new years eve. And for some reason, Charlie still likes sitting outside curled up in the grass when it's hot!!



Um yes..it hurt a little...you do know what a cuticle cutter is like? Not a pair of lil scissors, but a plastic handle, with a v shaped cutter *cringes* well...being that shape if it'd gone in another mm it would have cut a vein!

Who's a clever girl then?

We all do goofy things. When I was a kid, one day in Science class I ran the pad of my thumb over the serrated edge of a sharks tooth. Guess what? I got cut!!! Also I once ran my thumb over a scissor blade to see if it was sharp. It was. I hope you feel better.

Hope you are okay.
Usually, I just bump into the dishwasher door when it is down. That dishwasher hasn't moved in the 13 years we have lived here and I am the one who opens it. Does that stop me from walking into it? No! I have perpetual bruises on my shins just at that door height. Talk about intelligence.
You must live in the southern hemisphere or near the equator given the temp.

All I can say is, never fillet a long fish on a short cutting board that you have resting on your knee while you are in a rocking boat. I basically filleted the fish...and my knee.

ouch!!

When I was in second grade I tried to pull the top off a snack pack pudding...the last part of the lid would not come off, so what did I do? Grabbed it by the edges of the lid and almost took the top of my thumb off. Had to go for stitches.

Hahahahah Funny - I did that too today!! I dropped a can of coke and caught it and my thumb between my knees! I've given myself a nice blue blood-blister under my thumbnail from that!!! Shows the intelligence in catching full, unopened cans of coke. I then further demonstrated my intelligence (or lack of) by then proceeding to open the coke and get covered in it!!

You and me are in the same boat today, I think!!
