Toe toe, too?

Imagine my delight to receive a mailbox full of homemade banana bread from Torrie yesterday! I have not yet shared with anyone, and can be found crammin' my face full and chanting what might or might not be: "Mine! Mine! Alllll mine! I'm a HAPpy miser!" Thanks, Torrie!

Banana bread
Clearly, the banana bread has rendered me even more deranged than I already was.


It almost makes up for the bit of injury I did to myself yesterday morning. Upon awakening, my first action was to swing my legs out of bed and smash my right foot against the closet door frame at top speed, resulting in a blizzard of shooting stars that were born in my toes. As far as I can remember, the first words out of my mouth were "Fuuuuuuuuuck, fuck fuck fuck owowowowowowowwwwwwwww fuuuuuuuuuck!" as I hobbled to the bathroom in an attempt to prevent adding insult to injury.

In the interest of full disclosure, I bring you another in my ongoing series of self-injury photographs. Let's call this one "Exhibit A":

Toe bruise
Look at that...the bruise on my toe is in the shape of the Dumbass Nebula.

I'm starting to think that covering my body in bubble wrap might not be such a bad idea after all.

24 of you felt the overwhelming need to say somethin':

Ow! But I think you'll live, unless the flying monkeys come after you... then all bets are off.

Not quite the same effect as Saran Wrap.

Hee hee. You said "filled my mailbox".

Banana bread renders me retarded! I love-a me some banana bread!

I hope your tootsie isn't broken and it heals up soon!

Your poor toe! I hope the banana bread sends its healing energy down make it well quickly. It's not broken is it?

Poor little piggy. You look mighty cute eating banana bread, though.

Sir, the ETA to the Dumbass Nebula is t-minus 3 light years and counting.

Set a course, and make it so.

That is a fair effort on the toe! You should probably ba a little nicer to it. You may need it in the future :)

Ok, you didn't really say that, but it would've been really funny if you did.

Owie!
I recommend more banana bread. That will make your toe feel better.
*pauses, thinks about last comment*

Only if you eat the bread. Putting banana bread on toe won't help much.
Hope that helps. :o)

When my daughter was younger and we hauled her to the bone specialist for her fourth broken bone in two years, the nurse actually recomended a bubble wrap body cast. Maybe you're on to something.

What a way to begin a day! What lurid first words out of your mouth to set the tone for the day! What an exceptional bruise to carry throughout the day! I hope the banana bread made up for it—even though you sound like Gollum in your hoarding of it.

Poor toesie. Looks like that banana bread came just in the nick of time.

Eclectic - why monkeys fly...hope for Massengill in the sky...

Bear - No, but much more interactive. ;)

Torrie - and what girl doesn't want her mailbox filled with banana...bread?

Killer - thanks, I don't think it's broken, just embarassingly bruised. And I don't need banana bread to be retarded. It's the one thing I'm naturally good at.

Squirl - Nope, doesn't seem broken. And the bread is helping, thanks!

Susie - you're the only person nice enough to use "cute" when the word is clearly "deranged" or "demented." I like it!

Mr B - Make it so, Number One.

Kylz - sometimes I seriously think about replacing them all with wooden toes. I do this more often than I'd like to admit.

Torrie - okay, technically, I didn't say it, but I was headed there...

M_D - you know, with "special" folks like me, it's always good to be specific. *brushes crumbs from toe*

Romani Heart - not only protective, but downright stylish!

SS Nick - I figure I'm somewhere between Gollum and Daffy Duck at his greediest.

Kranki - the timing couldn't have been better!

Bucky I want you to form an Away Team with Bone Machine and that stranger over there in the corner. Yes, the one with the red shirt.

Beam down to the planet's surface and investigate the disturbance known as "Blogger.com" It may be dangerous.

Kristine - me? Kinky? Let me get these lobsters off my labia so I can come over and dispute that.

Mr. B - at least I am not the expendable crew member. Wait, or am I? Shit.

Yays for Banana Bread. Frig I want some RIGHT. NOW.

And can you stop injuring yourself, please? Or is it a cry for help? What is really going on, my Bucky? You can tell us.....

Amy -it's simply a cry for bubble wrap. ;)

Bubble wrap -- yeah, that way, when you bump into something, you get that nifty popping noise in the bubble wrap, and not in your toes. ;)

And why would banana bread make you dangered? Oh wait... you said DERANGED. I need new eyeballs...

I don't know how many times I've caught just my baby toe on a door frame and kept going with the rest of my foot--let's just say that poor toe has seen better days!

Your toe looks sore--maybe you should get the day off work--poor thing! ;)

Wouldn't you get all sweaty in bubble wrap--and everytime you sat down it would be like a party!

And banana bread?! Wow--you're loved!
