be careful with knives, kids

i'm going to give you some very useful advice. do not try to hurry when using an exacto knife. do not turn your attention away for even a fraction of a second. if you do, you will slice off the side of your finger and end up having a very painful afternoon. and maybe you only have rubbing alcohol in the house, and no peroxide, so you have to use that to clean the cut, and it burns like you never imagined anything could. and when you go back to the job of cutting an hour later, trying to psych yourself up for it, mustering up as much mental concentration as possible, you find that side tip of your finger laying there, like something out of a horror movie.

please learn this lesson from me.

I love that picture. Another blog I read told about slicing up her fingers for dinner along with the french bread... must have been in the cosmos.

E-mail me with cost and shipping to Alabama for 2 books. Thanks

Why does Brandon look passed out on the couch and Mona looks so suspiciously up to no good?

brandon falls asleep on the couch a lot. he finds it to be more comfortable than bed. weird. and mona is never up to any good, however i find it to be cute when she and brandon are sleeping next to each other. :)

gross. my fourth grade teacher would show us the gory scar on his thumb from when he worked in a drug store in high school and opened a box cutting toward himself instead of away from himself. i will file your story away with the one he told. knives are dangerous.
