Curse of the wrinkle finger

Mutterings continued.

Yesterday, while preparing dinner, I managed to saw my left middle finger with a serrated knife. It bled, so I put a band aid around it; noticed that the blood was coming through the band-aid so I put another one around that. I must have put them on a tad too tight as I just taken them off and my finger is all white and wrinkled. Looks like I managed to serrate my fingernail as well. Ouch.

Good night last night: my mushroom and spinach curry, sans blood, worked out very nicely (home made curry powder of chilli, cumin, coriander, garlic power, tumeric, ground ginger, salt and pepper). Served it with wild rice and pappadams done the traditional Indian way - in the microwave. And Rob prepared his apricot locum-doctor-on-standby pudding with custard.

The evening's entertainment featured the first episode of Round the Twist, a great Oz 'kids' show from the 80s; an interesting Kolchak vs. the Men in Navy; and a very funny Mystie (Phantom Planet, in which philosophising astronauts ("You know, Captain, every year of my life I grow more and more convinced that the wisest and best is to fix our attention on the good and the beautiful." -Ray. et al. ) in spaceships shaped like tampon applicators are attacked by Chicken McNuggets and Sugar Frosties. "Today, the moon narrowly missed hitting a man's eye like a big pizza pie." "Scientists believe 'that's amore'." -Crow/Tom Servo.).

And speaking of MST3K: "VOLUME 10 OFFICIAL INFO! We now have definitive word about The Mystery Science Theater 3000 Collection: Volume 10! Gonna be a good one!

The collection also includes these extras:

  • "MST3K Video Jukebox" (15 songs from the series)
  • "Photo Gallery"
  • "Outtakes" (we're told this actually means about 15 minutes of the best moments from "Poopie 2") " From Satellite News.

Today has been spent hanging out washing, taking some props to Hedda rehearsals (hello Grant W! I didn't get a chance to say 'hello' in person as he was in the middle of a scene); visiting the Stock Road markets to purchase vegies (more mushrooms and spinach as I want the make the curry again to take to work for lunch) and books (I Capture the Castle, by Dodie Smith, a book I discovered in my teens; and Raffles, the Amateur Cracksman by EW Hornung). And then I had lunch at Brittania - roast lamb and vegies, bread and butter pudding and a large pot of tea.
