I am totally a 12-year-old, endlessly fascinated with things like mutant teeth and getting stitches. So this is totally cut for the easily squicked, and to spare [livejournal.com profile] erjika's sensibilities. :D

I got my stitches out on Wednesday, so I just wanted to share the pictures of my fingers with stitches in for posterity. :D?

Here they are with my hand in the position it was when I found myself catching the blade. Cue a few seconds of dumbfounded "Oh wait. What?" before copiously dripping blood everywhere. :P

The ER doctor was all, "Hmm, yeah, the ring finger's pretty shallow, so Steri-strips are fine. But the middle finger you can see finger guts, so I'll stitch that up." I thought they'd be the 'dissolve-in-you' kind, but no, they were like thin plastic thread, reminds me of very thin quilting thread.

Mr. DeVille, I'm ready for that close-up~

When the stitches were taken out, I filled out paperwork and waited around for about an hour, reading my copy of Journey in the DEAF-WORLD for my ASL class. And then the doctor saw me. Unfortunately, the ER doctor had done her job well and made the stitches pretty tight, and the doctor at the worker's comp clinic only had a slightly larger pick/scissors/clip tool at hand. So she had to dig around the cut quite a lot to be able to get under the stitches to cut them and pull them out. Bleh.

And then I got a tdap tetanus shot, since it's been over 10 years since I had one. So sore arm for the last couple of days. Hoping the feeling will eventually come back to the tip of my finger. ^^;;

And now a safe space for people who just want to read the stuff below and comment on it. :D

I just think it's so cool. And I get the BEST stories from customers about their sliced finger adventures. The gal at the bank told me a story when I was making a deposit. XD

Thing 2: http://www.strindbergandhelium.com.
My freshman year of college, my awesome roommate and I randomly surfed to the Sundance film festival page, and watched a bunch of animated shorts. This set of entries changed our lives. In the sense that I have spread it like a virus among my school friends and it continues to inform our conversations to this day. :D And after 8 years, there will be more!

...I pride myself on my Helium voice. :DDDDDD

Thing 3: @[livejournal.com profile] erjika: BALLS. :3

Thing 4: Going to the Lawrence Hall of Science in Berkeley tomorrow! Deaf event for ASL class, and first time going to that museum. Awesomeness.

Thing 5: Hope all you lovelies are doing well. ♥
