Giving myself the finger

I figured I should probably write something, even though I’m missing a finger.  Well, technically it’s not missing. It’s just been injured on account of a careless accident around my home. Doors, frames, you get the idea.  I don’t feel too bad as there’s a lot of that going around these days (stupid accidents, I mean) but it’s still annoying considering that despite journalism training and all that jazz, I only use two fingers on each hand to type. (And can still manage to pull off 50 words per minute. So suck that, typing class!)

All that being said, I figured I should post something as the last thing that was up before this (assuming that I will finish writing this and click “publish” without losing the use of any more fingers) was my rant about the need for subways in this city and how certain people don’t actually listen to what the citizens of this city really want.

Before hobbling my index finger, I spent the last week helping a friend put up wallpaper (yes, I’m shocked people still use wallpaper in the 21st century) and planning out the next stage of my career.  As you may have guessed, I didn’t end up going to Atlantic City for the opening of the new Revel Casino. I figure I’ll just see it this summer when I go down to visit my family.

  1. Ouch! Hope you’re ok. What a weird coincidence… one of our cats got her arm crushed between a door and frame last night. As I worked to free her, she ripped my thumb apart between screams. I’m having a hard time typing, opening bottles, turning door knobs, brushing my teeth, etc. Two thumbs up for not taking your thumbs for granted!
