Yay! No.
Guess what I did tonight??!!

If you said "got second degree burns on my one good hand." You're right!
FUCKING OW. Do not grab a pot you had in the oven at 350 for 2 hours. It kind of sucks. Srsly. Blisters on my middle and ring finger. The rest are tingling like mad.

Typing? Not fun. Work is going to be great this week.
Back to the ice pack for me. :(

At least hands heal more quickly than other parts. I'm such a klutz that I regularly burn or cut myself while trying to cook.

Here's hoping you're better soon.

Thanks. This morning the blisters are significantly reduced and pain is minimal.

Ouch, sorry dude. Yeah... I'm hyper-cautious around all hot things. Because pain is scary.

Oh me? I totally go reaching into ovens without protection.

This was just stupid. I took the pot out of the oven and strained the rice out then grabbed the pot without a pad when trying to put the rice back in the pot. Brilliant! This morning the blisters are significantly reduced and pain is minimal.

Well, you should know you stand a good chance of getting burned when you don't use protection =p

OW. Sympathy!

Thanks. I'm actually OK today.

Boo! :( You might not want to ice it though. The cold is just as much of a shock to your nerves as the hot. You should try cool water/paper towels. It lessons the change of greater damage.

HUGS.

I did ice and soy sauce. Soy sauce is, apparently, the home remedy of choice for burns. This morning the blisters are significantly reduced and pain is minimal.

I've never heard of soy sauce. Any idea why that's supposed to work?

I knew a chef who believed in applying heat to a burn. Whenever he got a bad burn he'd hold his hand over the grill till the pain stopped.

He was also kind of crazy.
abmann From: abmann Date: April 27th, 2009 01:41 pm (UTC) (Link)
No idea. It did, however, relieve the pain fairly well. No clue if it did anything but alternating ice and soy sauce was good.

Um.. killing nerves is a great way to remove pain...

Gah! I'm sorry, burns are no fun. Heal!
abmann From: abmann Date: April 27th, 2009 12:58 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yes, ma'am!

oh no! I hope it heals quickly.
abmann From: abmann Date: April 27th, 2009 12:59 pm (UTC) (Link)
I think it will. It already looks and feels significantly better today. Typing is no problem.

What did you do to your wrist?
From: thegelf Date: April 27th, 2009 04:21 am (UTC) (Link)
Yowch! Burn cream and band-aids should help you get through the week.

Also a note to the wise: don't put your forearm down on the tip of a hot glue gun you just unplugged... At least I've got a rear light on my bike for night riding again?

You can still be my friend even with no hands.
abmann From: abmann Date: April 27th, 2009 12:59 pm (UTC) (Link)
But I can't play video games with you any more. D:

I'll make you some nose buttons.

egads! While I know you have a trusted companion to help... if you need anything from either of us we are free today to provide assistance and a little bit of mockery ;)
abmann From: abmann Date: April 27th, 2009 01:00 pm (UTC) (Link)
Excellent! I don't get mocked enough in my daily life.

Do you still have my pen?
onesoul From: onesoul Date: April 27th, 2009 01:11 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yes I do. I saw in my purse... and thought "doh! I stole his pen ... success is mine"... he will never notice... and evil cartoon criminal music played... it was great!

Be happy to drop it off today if you need it for very important burning other parts of your body business ;)
abmann From: abmann Date: April 27th, 2009 01:26 pm (UTC) (Link)
No hurry. I can get it from you when next I see you unless you sell it on the black market.

In which case, I want in on the profit.
onesoul From: onesoul Date: April 27th, 2009 01:33 pm (UTC) (Link)
Interesting idea.... I wonder how much I could get for a totally regular pen with a company logo on it.... I'm thinking I could probably get 20 cents!
