Painful Lessons

I learned a few things yesterday while I was cooking dinner.  The first thing I learned wasn’t really a lesson at all since I already possessed the knowledge.  I was using a mandolin to slice up some zucchini.

Image

A mandolin is a very useful kitchen tool…..and I “re-learned” that it is deadly sharp, (as in instrument of torture sharp).  So I am sure by now you realize that I must have cut myself.  Yep. 

The second thing I learned is that I have a relatively low tolerance for great gobs of blood loss.  I always thought I handled myself very well when injured.  Yesterday, when I couldn’t get the bleeding to stop, let alone slow down, I started to worry.  The worry turned in to having a hot flash with copious sweating….but, thankfully I did not pass out.  I did sit down with a wet paper towel and kept applying pressure to my finger. 

Image

Ouch!!

Image

As you can see, it did a number on my little pinky finger. 

Self Medication

I don’t know how so much can happen in an 8 hour time frame….but it does.  Work last night was absolutely horrible.  It had me day dreaming of girls day out and the fantastic pomegranate lemon drop martini that I had.

Eva tells a joke

Image

Eva:  Glen, Why does a chicken coop have two doors?….. Because if had four doors it would be a chicken sedan!

Image

Lila:  I don’t get it….

One Wild Weekend

That was some seriously strong nip!

Eva:  I spy with my little eye…

Image

Eva:  Must grasp for closer inspection

Image

Eva:  What is it???

Image

Eva:  Wait!  Now it is on me…..

Image

Eva:  Get it off!!!

(For the record….whatever she thought she saw and tried to get off of her foot, was completely invisible.)

Heavy Construction

Lila:  Eva, would you move my cage cover a little to the right?

Image

Lila: No….I said move it to the right.

Image

Eva:  My right or your right?

Image

Lila: Forget it….I’ll just move.

Eva: No, no….Let me try from a different angle.

Image

Eva:  How’s that suit you?

Lila: You’re fired.

He made me so sad

Tuesday Petey got his teeth cleaned.  They must have given him a heaping dose of anesthetic because he was so pathetic it just broke my heart.

Girls Day Out

Yesterday was one of those rare days in which my girlfriends and I had the same day off together.  We had a wonderful couple of hours down on the plaza.  We ate at Bo Ling’s.  It was wonderful.

This is the best egg drop soup I have ever had.

Image

Being the complete pig that I am…I forgot to take a picture of my entree before I made a mess out of it by eating it.  Vickie on the other hand barely ate any of her food….so here is a picture of her cashew chicken.

Image

And it wouldn’t be a girls day out without a nice adult beverage.  Ila and I had the pomegranate lemon drop martini….Vickie had to be different and had a pomegranate martini.  This is Vickie and I, (picture #4….yes it took that many to get a decent picture), with our respective beverages.

Image

Our waiters name was Vernon, and he was a great guy……meaning he put up with our shenanigans.

Image

Ila, get a little alcohol in her and she is such a flirt!

Image

We had a wonderful day!  Just wish we had more than our usual 2 per year.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
