First the drama...

So this weekend, the creeping crud has continued to rule my life. While I haven't been near death's door or anything fitting for LJ Drama.. I was pretty useless.

On the one hand, I've been exploring C#. And I hate to admit it... I'm kinda liking it. The whole "Feeling dirty, I think I should shower" impression of programming in Windows .NET has gone away.

So I watched some movies and poker. And had a quiet day while jnanacandra and NefA went baby shopping.

Later in the day I pulled out the big guns and made some Matzoh Ball soup. If this isn't good for the body... nothing is. Now mind you.. I am not a Jewish Grandmother, So I was working at a -3 in the kitchen. Granted it was prefab mix, so it wasn't completely an ordeal.

The Soup actually came out perfectly. Even SJ loved it. The only problem was that I was holding the bowl by the lip while I poured in the boiling soup. My thumb felt the liquid rising. All 200º of the liquid. Not wanting to drop the immensely painful bowl and the ladle (causing splashes everywhere) I continued to empty the ladle and then briskly put down the bowl shaking my thumb in pain.

After about 2 hours on ice, My thumb was sufficiently blistered. If I removed my thumb from the ice for more than 10 seconds, sharp shooting pain returned. I iced for about 4 hours (and as I burnt my thumb at 10 pm... I was up a bit later than I planned)

It is now the next morning and the blistering has 'gone down'. The thumb is a little sore and fortunately on my off hand. Depending how it feels today I may get it looked at. Amen to the internet and SJ for finding the info on the treatment of 1st and 2nd degree burns.

It's been about 30 years since I last had even a mind burn. So, I was a bit out of practice. We'll hope this isn't more subconscious training for the next 5 years.
