K is for Knife

That should be sharp but wasn’t…

at least my thumb is still attached! Might take a while before the tip quite matches the other.

I checked to be sure no flesh or liquid proteins were in the taboule, got dh off the roof to finish cutting up the vegetables, and we took it to a party.

Does anybody remember when this blog was over on livejournal? I had no idea when I started it up what a pain in the butt livejournal is, or what other options were. Thankfully in July last year I migrated over here (with all the old posts, but without the old comments… some hard to work around glitch in the whole LJ to wordpress thing).

I had a mini contest here where folks could guess what was living on my kitchen table. Cathy-Cate guessed a corn snake and won (it was a garter snake), but I couldn’t find her. So I randomly drew another name, sent the yarn off to Ruth, and have felt badly about it in a small way since.

So Cathy’s getting a small thank you package. She did such a good thing raising money for some good causes, and if she ever realized she won something that she never got, well, she’s been too nice to say anything, and she still reads and comments over here… so Thanks Cathy-Cate… we all know who you are now!

    Ooops! Glad the salad was still servable and that you didn’t need stitches!

    Ow!! I hope the knife has been sharpened so that it’s less dangerous now (isn’t that sort of ironic, that they’re more dangerous when dull?).

    Ouch! I hate when that happens. But I got a chuckle over you checking the salad for human bits (I do that, too). Glad the thumb is still attached.

    Ow!! Hope this hasn’t impacted your knitting significantly…

    P.S. I love that you have 13 postings that fall under the “whine” category… :)

    Oh, Lisa, that’s too funny!
    Here’s the scoop: I was a brand spanking new blogger, and on wordpress, as you now know, comments & email addresses automatically get forwarded. I didn’t know then that it wasn’t the same for all blog platforms. I think I had to set up a LJ account for something, maybe even to comment, but yes, it was just a ‘front’; I didn’t realize there was no way to track me down. AND this was before I discovered bloglines! So I would wander aimlessly around the blogosphere, as if in Brownian motion, bumping into interesting blogs, and not being able to find them again. That’s exactly what happened; I couldn’t remember your blog name, just vaguely the ‘zu’ part maybe, and I couldn’t find you again for quite some time. By which time any recollection of a contest was long gone. And I never knew I won! So my feelings certainly weren’t hurt.

    I can’t believe that was only a year ago; it seems much longer than that. We’re older and so much wiser. (And some of us have less thumb now than then. Do be careful! Thumbs come in very handy!)

    It’s very sweet of you to send me a consolation prize for my blog-naivete!
    : )
    (I’m guessing it’s not mice-icles for the snake….)

    Yikes! Glad it didn’t turn out to be Thumbouli! I won’t even want to know why you had a snake on your table? Jeepers!
