Sidelined

So I had all kinds of deep thoughts in mind for tonight, but unfortunately, I'm going to have to save them for a time when I do not have a food-blogging injury. That mandolin slicer got me pretty good last night, and it would appear that the more I type, the more swollen and threatening it looks.

Yeah, I know it's itty-bitty, but it's deep and has been irritating me all day. I've been changing Band Aids like diapers! I spared you the blood and guts photo last night because I could barely stand to look at it myself, but now that it has closed up a bit I figured I'd share so that I can whine to you. And demonstrate my scary old-lady hands.

Besides, watching the So You Think You Can Dance finale requires no thumb stress. It will likely be over by the time you read this, so do tell: are you happy with the winner?

Bonus points for telling me your favorite routine of the season. Mine? It's a really tough call, but Mia Michaels' "Butt" dance sticks out in my mind. Maybe that's because it hits a little too close to home... ;)

I think it must be some kind of kitchen gadget initiation to cut yourself on a mandolin. I did the same thing the first time I ever used one. It was not a fun cut...right on my thumb knuckle. I couldn't write properly until it healed up a bit.

I don't watch SYTYCD but my mom does and she was surprised Kayla was cut.

I don't watch the show, so I can't tell you my favorite routine! BUt wanted to say sorry about your thumb, and that I understand; I seem to cut myself like that all. the. time. Ugh! And sometimes it's the littlest ones that hurt the most!

Super glue. On cut. Try it.

Kayla was the best dancer, but Janelle beat her on personality. Remember, we were voting for America's Favorite Dancer, not America's Best Dancer. That being said, I have a fes favorite dances: Kayla and Brandon's last dance together. (The heart attack dance); the addiction dance; the cancer dance; Brandon's epic solo; and Adai's epic solo. (I really wanted either Adai or Kayla to win, but Janelle was clearly the winner on Wednesday night)

Ow! That looks painful! I was at a pet store yesterday playing with a beagle puppy and he bit right underneath my finger nail by accident as he was trying to bite the toy I was giving to him. That hurt!! Definitely not as bad as slicing my finger open but I feel your pain!

My favorite dance was to 'Gravity' and it honestly brought tears to my eyes. Man, I'm such a sap!

Hope your thumb feels better soon. You know, I think maybe some food at Pure might make it feel better ;-)

Yo, my mandolin has sent me to the hospital for stitches! I sympathize bebe -- feel better :)

ahhh, diana i hope your thumb is recovering. kitchen injuries are the worst because they always affect the parts of your body that you need in order to perform the crucial function of eating!!!
