got myself good with hothot cooking oil splashed from the pan last night (dumb dumb dumb)– lucky to have a fella around who's good in unpleasant medical situations (and who can also finish the cooking– seared pork chops with a mushroom, onion, pear, white wine, and membrillo (quince) tequila deglaze– delicious)– but, vain girl that I am, I reeeally wanted to call in ugly to work this morning. wah.


maybe I can consider it a type of urban primitives scarification thing. in any case, am definitely planning to work it into the halloween costume someways– good thing our costume plan allows for it!

  1. Holy Cats!Last year I was cooking some chicken livers and I bent down to get the splatter screen out of the cabinet when the chicken liver exploded. I felt the grease hit my face and heard it sizzle. It hit just below my eye – the size of a dime. I was freaking out because of the proximity to my eyeball…Luckily I remembered having a tube of burn cream (Silver sulfadiazine) in the first aid kit and I swear that stuff was magic in healing the burn.My husband kept saying that it was hardly noticeable, but later he admitted he was only saying that so I wouldn't flip out more than I already was…I knew he was lying.
