+ Survived the CBEST test!
- Frustrated the hell out of myself because I did the second essay first, but wrote it on the sheet for the first essay. D: So I had to transcribe it to the proper sheet and erase the wrong part. Wasted about twenty minutes, so I didn't finish essay no. 1.

+ Made a new friend at the test!
- Because the officials who collected all our cell phones at the beginning couldn't find hers!
+ But it turned out later to have been in the wrong box. Phone recovered! I basically spent time lending her my phone so she could call her ride, and we swapped stories. She told me about being a teacher in Colombia and coming her, learning English, and testing to be a teacher here. I told her about trying to be a speech therapist.

+ Found a recipe for Amazing and Easy Lentils and Rice. It really was that easy. Used some frozen lamb stock I had in the freezer for flavor, garlic, onion and tomatoes, and it was delicious.
- (?) Mom said that everything in her bathroom smelled like it afterwards. :P
+ Food porn at Queen's house! Photographs to come! Poached pears, cake, and my lentils and rice, and wine/sparkling cider. All to try the burnt caramel sauce I bought when Queen and I went to the SF Farmer's Market at the Ferry Building. Guys? The term 'foodgasm' is utterly appropriate here.

- Work was so boring because of the rain. Pretty quiet.
---Murphy decided to liven things up. I'm not sure if I was klutzy, forgetful, or the machine just went haywire. We have a stack cutter for cutting edges off photographs. Very low-tech, a bar for holding the photos in place and a blade on a giant handle, like a giant cleaver. Usually I'll cut, then put the handle back to vertical where a little catch keeps it in place. This time as I was getting the cut photos out, the handle fell down. So I caught it -- blade-first on my fingers. UM, THE EASILY SQUICKED MAY WANT TO SKIP THIS PART WHICH SHALL BE BEHIND LJ-CUT



Cue a comical moment of 'wait what?' and then the blood started welling up like crazy. ^^;; Ran for the bathroom, dripping big fat drops all the way, and dripped in the sink while my coworker went through a first aid kit. I just washed it off, couldn't tell how deep it was, and wrapped the whole thing in quadruple folded gauze and put a tight rubber band on it like a tourniquet. Had to hunt around for workers comp paperwork DX but then off to the ER.

Lucky I got seen pretty quick, hadn't even had lunch yet because this happened right before I was going to go. I told the nurse checking my breathe-in, breathe-out that the funny noises would be my gurgling tummy. :P Turned out that I did decent with the pressure bandage and keeping it elevated, because the bleeding had stopped, and actually most of the pain. Tingly fingertips from cut off nerve endings. So left ring finger only needed steri-strips to hold the skin closed (ugh so glad the slices were all in the fleshy part of my fingers, nothing majorly important, hehe), and the middle finger needed stitches, because 'finger guts' were visible since the skin gapped pretty wide. It looked really cool though. Mildly impressed the ER doctor with my high pain tolerance, and got three stitches. And a ton of paperwork, of course.



+ Birthday dinner for my grandpa, turning 79! Uncle and aunt came in, there was cooking of delicious food like corn soup, steamed fish, eggplant, mushrooms galore, and more tasty veggies than you can shake a stick at. :D And awesome cake from my aunt's friend's bakery in Chinatown, spongecake with fruit and this awesome light frosting, not heavy like buttercream (I can't stand American desserts because of the heavy frosting).

+ Bro showed me this hilarious video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JruqUIjl5Sw
The Muppets doing Bohemian Rhapsody. You have not lived until you've seen this.

Okay, long enough! Hope all you darlings are doing wonderfully! ♥

Watch it!

Thank you hon! We'll see how it is in a week or so. Currently covered in 万花油, if you've heard of that. ^^ I'll have to check out your MC translations soon; I really want to watch the concerts. Is it as awesome as 2008 Kokuritsu?
