Oh! That can't be good.

Yikes.  Another reason why Ginger should make safety scissors. 

They slid off the arm of my stitching chair.  At least it was the floor and not my toe.  It's too early in the morning to go into detail, but a similar incident involved my toe and bloody foot prints.  Not pretty. 

Over at The Scholar's blog she's taking questions.  So, feel free to pop on over and give her something to write about.  A word of advice, though.  Don't bother asking if her host mother makes her do chores around the house.... the answer is 'no, there's a cleaning women'.  And don't ask if she's trying to put her mother into an early grave with all this gallivanting around Europe without adult supervision or if she thinks I have a money tree in the back yard because she'll just think you're me,  roll her eyes, and not post your Q or an A. 
(Hi, honey.... you know I'm just kidding.... sort of.) 

It's bitter cold today.  I'm not leaving the house.  If I could, I'd stay in bed, too.  Last night I started the newest John Grisham book.  I love a good legal thriller.  Here's hoping it's a good one. 


  1. I hope that didn't leave too big of a hole in your floor! But better the floor than the foot.

    I once had a roommate from Spain who didn't know how to clean since they had a maid at home. Once she washed the vinyl floor with Ajax! I don't know if this is related, but the roommate also ironed her underwear.

  2. Yikes! Would love to have a pair of those fab scissors but now I'm scared! LOL

    have a good "staying in" day!!!

  3. *gasp* That could have been so bad! You know, if you had a nice fob on those scissors...

  4. I learned the hard way that when Gingher says "knife edged" they really mean it. I got some Tacky Glue on my shears while crafting and, when I tried to use the ratty old tee shirt I was wearing to wipe it off, the blade went through the doubled tee shirt fabric and deep into the pad of my thumb. I *should* have had stitches, but it was the day before vacation. I really should have been packing rather than crafting so I didn't want to spend hours in the ER or urgent care. It stopped bleeding about two days later and the skin is nearly healed now, 19 days post-injury My thumbprint is permanently altered and it's still sensitive/tender. Needless to say, I'll never do that again! :)
