You know how you're all ready to get sympathy with your sob story, only to find out somebody's got an even better one? I hate that.

Well, I had the WORST WEEKEND EVER (or so I was planning to embellish it), part of which was spent trying to find the leak in my roof. I only get a full weekend off once every six weeks, so that's not how I wanted to spend it, but hey -- it stopped raining, and who knows for how long? We got called to a house fire Friday, Saturday I was on the roof, yada yada *sob* yada, kids left to do their own thing Saturday night instead of going to the movies with me, yada yada I'm such a sad sack yada, mowed the overgrown lawn but the mower's acting up, yada. Then I get called to go into work early Sunday, thus ending my rotten weekend but giving me another thing to bitch about.

I walk into work, where they're right in the middle of a murder investigation; this gal walked into the lobby and announced she'd just killed her boyfriend. With a hammer. Apparently there might be some connection to a car that was torched. I might add that I was just bragging to a friend in England about how relatively low our crime rate is.

So not only a rotten weekend, but also a good sob story shot right in the ass. I mean, hey -- nobody beat *me* to death with a hammer. So, I have a sinus headache? So what! There are kids starving in Africa.

Okay, I'm done now. I'm going to go back to acting cheerful; just needed to vent without taking a tool to anyone.

I've been meaning to go back and find out, but never did -- what exactly did you do to your thumb?

After reading the way things have been going down Arkansas way, it sound like you're .... me!

I was opening a can of cat food with a pull top lid on it. The lid got stuck about halfway off, so I jerked it hard. It came off quickly and I over compensated for my hand with the sharp implament flying towards my face and brought it back down right on top of my other thumb. It didn't stop until it hit bone. The slice goes from just below where my knuckle starts to just under my thumb nail. I bled all over the place just in the few seconds it took me to put it under the all ready running hot water of the sink and grab a wad of paper towels that I used to clutch to my thumb in an attempt to get the bleeding under control. I had to have stitches and probably cut through a small vein since it continued to seep blood for over 24 hours after I was sewn up.

The whole time I was reading that, I was saying out loud: "Ow. Ow ... Ow! OW!"

I'm glad you're getting better. Did the cat feed guilty?
