Fail

So Thursday night had a lot of fail.

I was chopping an onion, and of course, my thumb decided to go out on an adventure to see what was really under the edge of the knife. As thumbs don't typically have eyes, it had to examine said edge of knife by braille. The expected happened: I did a lot of dancing around the kitchen. Some words were uttered that one typically doesn't utter in the presence of one's mother.

Happily, most of my thumb is still attached: I am pleased to report that I can still count to ten without taking off my shoes.

That wasn't the worst of the fail.

No, the worst was finding a band-aid. It is indeed ironic, but I don't actually have that many. Gigantic multi-trauma dressings suitable for packing around all kinds of gruesome mess that Michael Bay won't even touch, yes. Piddling little band-aids? Strangely not so much.

I did have a couple 2x2 gauze pads and some tape, which right then was exactly what I wanted. Friday, I managed to find a couple band-aids in my hiking first-aid kit, and that carried me until Saturday. But Saturday afternoon, on my way home from A-EMT class, I had to stop at the drugstore, because I was running out. (No, I didn't just grab a handful from one of the ambulances. Not my style to leave a truck depleted without a real patient. Having been jammed on calls like that myself, I'm twitchy about that kind of thing.) 

But now I'm ready for the next time my thumb decides to be foolish.

The Currier Museum in Manchester, NH, will have a show of MC Escher's work from the 20th of September to the 5th of January, 2015.

<em>M.C. Escher created intricate geometric drawings and prints of spaces that can only exist on paper and in the viewer’s mind. His images continue to boggle the eye and the brain, captivating viewers more than 40 years after his death. In Escher’s world, stairways are built upside-down, water runs uphill and every object is reproduced with mathematical precision. This Escher retrospective is one of the largest and most comprehensive ever offered in the United States. Its exclusive New England showing at the Currier Museum of Art will contain his best-known works of art, early family portraits, original preparatory sketches and mezzotints he created, and one of the of lithographic stones he used to print a later work.</em>

My, my, my, my drawings hit me
So hard
Make me say
"Oh my lord
Thank you
For blessing me
With a hand that draws
And a mind that sees."

It feels good
When you know you're down
A super dope homeboy
From a Dutch town
And I'm known as such
And this is art, uh,
You can't touch.
