I have determined, through extensive trial and error, the most annoying (PG-13) place to cut yourself.

It is, without question, the space between the thumb and index finger. Bandaids don't really work, liquid stitches won't cut it, butterfly closures can't manage... The staple gun is looking more and more appealing every day.

You put bandages on your cuts? They almost always eventually scar over for me anyway.

SecondTalon wrote:I ask because it's notoriously difficult to cook for one person. Oh, it can be done, sure. And there's lots of things you can do. It's just easier to cook for two or four people. You can buy a pound of ground meat, no problem. Buying a pound and dividing that up into half or quarter chunks then freezing the excess until you need it is... kinda annoying. And crap that you have to cut up.. onions, for example.. it's rare to find a dish for one person that requires a whole onion that isn't "roasted onion stuffed with onion and an onion garnish with onion dip" and it's a pain to save them.

So that may be part of the problem, if you're shopping for one.
Indeed, just me. I don't mind the divide/store too much (well, as long as I have good containers, I hate using cling-wrap), it's more of the general idea that I am now almost entirely responsible for my own nutrition, which is weird.

This was a a little over a quarter inch (>6mm) deep which means it's through the epidermis and the dermis and into the subcutaneous tissue. When I first took the stitches out and it opened up again (sans bleeding) it looked like a fricking cross section from a text book. So yes, I'm doing everything in my power to keep it closed up as much as possible. I'm guessing there is going to be one heck of a scar...

Been using it. That was the "liquid stitches" i referred to.

Unfortunately the area changes shape so much that it cracks, splits, forms extruding edges that snag, and eventually rips off even if I'm careful. I can only get 24-36 hours before I have to reapply it, and every time I tear the remnants out I'm a little worried I'm setting back the healing process. Plus, the site you linked confirms my own research by pointing out "Even with the medical form of superglue, some skin deterioration or irritation may occur and delay healing." So every time I have to reapply it I'm setting the healing back a little bit more...

Seriously, watch that part of your hand as you move it, pick up a glass, a pencil, open a door, scratch yourself, type... It flattens out, curls up, gets compressed, gets stretched out. The crazy glue can't hack it the way I imagine it would if the cut were ANYWHERE else including on most other joints.

Having fairly decently burnt that same section of skin in a very stupid accident, I can empathise. I ended up using a wrist spint and compression bandage to mostly immobilize the area, and a gauze dressing with some Polysporin. If you can keep your thumb in a fixed position relative to the rest of your hand, you don't lose a whole lot of function and can stop a lot of the movememt that causes problems.

She did eventually transition to veggies only+dairy, because of dolphins getting caught in tuna fishing nets (I think). And dolphins aren't stupid. I dunno. Anyway, consider pescetarianism! It's a good way to keep your protein intake at a healthy level without supplementing.

(I hope it doesn't come off as if I am telling you how to live your life. But if you really really like fish after going without them for a while, considering a diet modification could increase your happiness!)

I'm trying to cut dairy and egg from my diet too, so going pescetarian seems like a bit of a step backward to me, but I am considering allowing myself eco-friendly fish once in a while, since the environmental footprint would be negligible and frankly no fish ever again is a bit depressing.

Man setting up a university society looks like hard work... Essentially I'd need to get at least 20 members from the university and I could have members from outside uni but they couldn't make up more than 25% of the overall number of people involved plus I'd need to get them all to pay at least £3 upfront which I'd have to set up a special bank account for then I'd have to assign someone to be secretary and someone to be treasurer (I want to be the president of the society so that's sorted). Then I'd have to find a space we could use to hold our meetings and decide on the time of those meetings plus I'd have to set the date of our first AGM. On top of that I'd need to set up a website for the society to prove that it exists or something. All before it even gets to be approved as a society in the first place.

Not to mention the fact that I have no idea how much money I'd need to raise in order to have enough for all the stuff I'd need. I don't think £60 is going to cut it though.

Drew a bath for the first time in at least 8 years to try to make my muscles and joints relax before getting on another flight (after an 11-hour one yesterday). Made it a little too hot because what I like from a shower is too hot for a bath. Don't quite see the fuss about baths, honestly, though my hotel admittedly doesn't have wacky, strangesmelling bathstuff. Will probably not use this much water for bathing again in the near future.

EDIT: Exited bath and felt entire body relax and am in practically no pain. Am now pro-bath. Now to square this with concern for the environment...

Baths are no fun without bathtoys.

Interesting fact: my yellow submarine has the four Beatles' heads poking out, and my dog (when he had teeth) liked to chew it. First he chewed off John Lennon's head, then George Harrison's... Then Paul McCartney's. He's so far left Ringo Starr's head untouched.

I got a teapot for my birthday today, what a great gift.
Also: a book my mom bought with me over 2 months ago and which she kept on her desk ever since.
Most of my friends are on vacation, and even my grandparents had other plans for today.

I'm used to having boring birthdays, but I can't quite remember one like this.

oooo, bad birthdays? well i had breakfast with mom than sat around and read and interneted, then my dad picked me up for an early dinner, then i came home again and got ready to go out with my friends who never came because they never got around to leaving where they were, or bothering to get me an invite. i did however finsh my book. this is not as bad however as my 18th, where i invited atleast 30 people to have dinner with me, and aside from my mom, only one person came, and not anyone i'm terribly close to.
you want to talk bad birthdays, don't even start with me.

Returning to the now slightly old conversation: the trick to cooking for one person is to learn to love leftovers and your freezer. One or two portions of leftovers are fine in the fridge for lunch or dinner the next day or two, and any more than that goes in the freezer. This means you always have the convenience of a ready meal on nights you can't be arsed/don't have time to cook, except it is much tastier and almost certainly healthier.

I'm still somewhat working on the whole variation in my cooking thing, though...

An idea for you. Put the leftovers in two or more containers, and a sign on the fridge door saying "I have put laxatives in one of my food containers because I'm fed up with you guys nicking it. Are you feeling lucky?"

Whether you actually put laxatives in one of them depends on how likely you think they are to call a bluff.

The :shock: smily has never been more appropriate.

You seriously don't know how easy you have it. A levels will fucking end you.

The worst case scenario is I get 6/7 A*'s and 3/4 A's, but the pressure I put on myself to get straight A*'s is frankly fucking stupid, which is what's making me 0_0. A levels are gonna be tough, but I'll never have 9 1.5 hour+ exams in four days again. Hopefully, anyway.


If it helps, other than helping convince your preferred 6th form to take you on in certain subjects, and occasionally some stuck up universities, a majority of A*s with the rest A is going to be absolutely fine. As for the 9 exams in 4 days thing...amen to that. You might in University but that's ages off :D

Also, oh yeah, AS results on August 19th. Where's my copy of Hitchhiker's Guide...

Is youtube down or something? I can't seem to connect. I think it might just be my ISP...
My spelling is abysmal. Just saying.
