Finger Food

A Stave It Off first happened last week, as I dislocated my finger playing basketball. I have never before looked down at a body part and had it appear horribly misshapen (please no jokes here... although I did ask several people, "Guess what's stiff and swollen and purple?")

So the bright side, besides the slightly horrified looks of sympathy as I described pulling the finger back into alignment, is that I've been immortalized in web-cartoon format... also a Stave It Off first! Thanks to Walter for that. I feel just like the Girl with the Pearl Earring.

Over the weekend I also went digital camera shopping with Carole. After my trip to France, and the aggravation caused by my old Canon 35mm (and the price of developing 4 rolls of B&W film,) I'd had enough. So I purchased a Konica Minolta Dimage Z-20 and promptly took it to Walter's party and annoyed various people with flash photography. I'm looking forward to long walks with Soapy as we chat about relationships and take photographs of interesting looking fire escapes and drain spouts. _Bodily Injury

Any chance we might see some of the pix from the party?

And you do realize that from the sound of your last paragraph, one might guess that Soapy is your SO and Carole an acquaintance? I'm just sayin'...

Is it bad form to "comment" on your own blog?
Well, regardless, I deleted all the pictures. It was just a test run... and everyone had awful red-eye due to the flash.
And as for my relationship with Soapy... I don't see where it's any of your business!!!

You were already immortalized in the 4/30 strip. You had the punchline then, too.

I meant to say it's the first time my finger has been immortalized... I, of course, have been immortalized all over the place.
