[Current Mood |sadow!]

I managed to jam a sliver up under my right pinky fingernail, a la torture techniques not allowed by the Geneva Convention. And then to not realize that I had not completely extracted it for at least a couple hours. The end of my finger is still red and hurting like a bitch. Before I starting icing it, it hurt all the to my elbow.

And now I have a house full of friends and we're watching one of the worst movies ever, the marvelously dreadful Best of the Best. I can't decide if the pain in my hand is distracting from the dreadfulness of the movie or if the movie is distracting from the pain.

That movie is a THOUSAND times worse if you're actually taking Tae Kwon Do and know what is and is not accurate for the sport.

The person who recommended it is a martial arts fighter and delighted with how dreadful it is.

Oh, I adore it for a similar reason. It's SO BAD that it's good.

I'd soak the hand in something antiseptic (Like mouthwash) and warm water, just in case the delay in extracting all the sliver has started some infection. It should at least be soothing, and if there IS infection, that should bring good relief.

Good idea. Done, and slowly feeling better.

So what you're saying is that you've tortured *yourself*? In violation of the Geneva Conventions.

What's wrong with this picture? :)

I'm filing suit against my house, as it happens. I believe I can recover millions of dollars for pain and suffering and PTSD.

Yup.
