Some things to say

The first cooking class was yesterday, and it was quite fun. Knife skills - we chopped, diced, miced, julienned, and made battonets (i.e. french fries). Next week, eggs.

I took a step out of the house this morning and nearly immediately found myself flat on my back, bumping down the stairs. The extent of damage seems to be a cut on my left hand near the base of the pinky, and an associated bruise/strain in that pinky when I try to move it. I constantly surprise myself with how much I use that finger in typing.

Luckily, the backpack broke my fall without sacrificing my work laptop *or* my iPhone.

I took the 43 Things Personality Quiz and found out I'm a
Tree Hugging Money Managing Extrovert

Apparently, "0% of the 38424 people who have taken this quiz are like you."

That is EXACTLY how I began my morning! The front steps, not the cooking.

Ah... see, I walked very very slowly and carefully across the ice flow parking lot to my car, and arrived unscraped.

Pinkies are an essential emacs component. (Hm... M-x pinkie? No? Disappointing.)

Great googly moogly!

Glad you're (mostly) ok.

Oof! When I got out this morning all pavements were icy sheets of death. The bus I took had to avoid pedestrians walking along Holland St to avoid slipping and sliding.

I'm glad you're mostly ok!

Also, "0% of the 39149 people who have taken this quiz are like you." I wonder if they say that about everybody?

Hmph. I'd rather be romantic than money-managing.

This sounds about right to me :).

The ice this morning was pretty killer. The back stairs were kind of a bad idea.

I also get a 0% match ("Tree Hugging Healthy Money Manager"). Maybe they mean out of the 2^60 different ways to answer the quiz....

Okay, that foolish quiz keeps trying to tell me I'm an extrovert.
Jan. 6th, 2009 02:02 am (UTC)
Ouch. Sorry to hear that!

I made it all the way to Porter Square before wiping out.

Sorry bout your pinkie! Get better. :)

i noticed the ice and went *very carefully* back into the house for salt, and sprinkled my front walk on the way to scraping my car.

Ice, Ice, everywhere!
I, too, landed on my butt/back/right side this morning... and I'm nowhere near Boston and your ice! I don't know if that makes you feel better or not, but I thought it might be good for at least half a smile. Megan thought me wiping out completely ungracefully was quite amusing. Thank heavens for puffy jackets and my butt being well-padded.
