Ow damn my hand (contd.)

Opposable thumbs are such a wonderful thing.

I wish I was able to use mine without pulling off my bandage (bad) or pulling on my wound and making it hurt like hell (worse).


I hate feeling helpless.

Wait, what?

Robert Downey Jr. as Sherlock Holmes and Jude Law as Dr. Watson?

This has the potential to be either seriously awesome, or completely ridiculous. Here's hoping it's the former.

(On the other hand, if I see one more person complain that Watson can't be played by Jude Law because Watson "isn't fit" I'm going to strangle something, I swear. Read the books, goddamnit, people.)

Ow damn my hand

Note to self: saying "it sure would be nice to get some kind of non-life-threatening injury, like a sprained ankle or something, to be able to stay home from work for a bit" out loud is dangerous.

Because some evil god will be listening in.

In the specific, I was washing dishes this morning and a glass broke apart while I was washing it. Cut a pretty big gash in the back of my hand, right over the thumb. Hurts like hell, wouldn't stop bleeding, had to actually go to the emergency room.

And end result, yeah, I can't really work with my hand bandaged up like this, as I can't really move my thumb... can't really cook either, or type very well, or wash more dishes, or button up my jacket without the wound hurting, etc, etc.

I got lucky, it could've been vastly worse, but... grrr.

Now to research how to get bloodstains off a carpet...
