Burned hand cooking. Badly. Can't type for few days. Can't finish Fridays post as promised. Look for it Monday. Teachers test again tomorrow. I know all about Gibbs Free Energy now. Watch, they won't ask this time.

Lucky that burn is left hand. Can still use #2 pencil since I'm a righty.

Update: The problem isn't the burns themselves, they're not that large. What really makes it hurt is they're exactly where I burned my fingers taking hot baking pans out of the dishwasher last week. The skin is dry and chapped already and the burns from the skillet are much deeper then they would have been if my hands weren't already messed up. There's no buffer between the epidermis and subdermis anymore and the burn was basically straight to the subdermis. 16 hours later and they still hurt like a bastard. I mostly can't type with two hands because I don't want burn cream all over my PowerBook not because the hand is useless. I'm sure I'll feel better later but for now It just hurts like a son of a bitch.

Ouch, indeed.

It's okay to blog drunk; just don't cook drunk.

I was sober, just forgot I took off the mit and promptly grabbed 400 deg F skillet.

It was a skillet Cornbread-Polenta-For-Dummies thing I came up with. It actually, burn not-withstanding, turned out better then I expected.

HS 9-12 Chemistry. You and I shoud really get together sometime and chat in person.

Make Stacy (in all of her free time) give you some of her burn salve. It's made out of, like, roots and toads feet or something, but whatever it is IT WORKS!! You should see some of the Chef's burns that she claims don't hurt after using Stacy's salve.

When I used to cook, we would burn our fingers on the flat top at then end of the night to build up callouses, or just kill the nerves or something like that. Whatever it did, it worked, Justin could pick up bacon off the flat top and not feel a thing.
