Today I went to work and had class. In class, I did something really dumb. I was opening a new ethofoam knife that was in a plastic bag to carve foam to make a half scale mannequin form. I pushed the knife through the plastic to rip the bag...and took off a chunk of my thumb with it. I was just sorta announced to the class, "Um - I just cut myself badly." It was bad. I mean, not that bad - not stitches bad, but bad. And my friend Monica really helped me bandage it and applied pressure and helped me clean it. When I got home, Dave and I were making ourselves dinner, and I took off the bandages that Monica had put on (cause they were wet) and I wanted to show him - and it started GUSHING blood again. Ugh. Terrible. We tried this super healing pad, but the blood just pooled (EW) so that attempt failed and now I have a butterfly on it. Not cool. Lots of injuries lately - I cut my finger tip on a nail gun nail at homecoming for AIX, stabbed myself with a pin on Monday working on a project for the Cloisters museum, my mom fell down the stairs and has a big bruise on her foot, yesterday my mom poured boiling water on her leg while making pasta for dinner, and Dave fell off a bike. Not good. Send happy thoughts our way!!

Here are some pictures of recent events:

Nicole and I at the AIX table hours in the cafe.

Tuffy the fire truck! Happy halloween! (Alyson bought this for him!)

As for my first of the month 101 in 1001 update - this month I have been putting a lot of work into Tri-Star Design and building up an even bigger client base (#9). That makes me proud! I'm in the process of getting another Little in my sorority (#87). My internship for MSU is also in progress (#3). #58 I'm doing, and it's nto that hard, but at the same time, I need pomade wax and I can't get it. I'm assuming that it means I have to finish ALL my hair product - and not just finish the one container of that particular product and restock it. As in, I don't want to by ANYTHING until what I have is completed. Hmph.

So I didn't actually fully accomplish anything on my list this month, but I am in the process of working on some. I've still been putting 10% of paychecks into savings, and I switched financial/investment advisors. My oil still desperately needs to be changed. It's terrible. I'm hoping to order my FIT class ring within the next week.

Tomorrow is internship day at the gallery which should be nice. This weekend is going to be super busy, as usual! Yikes!!

I have some of that hair pomade (I think it's the same you have) - so definitely don't buy it. I'll give it to you so you don't have to spend $$.

I have yet to finish making my 101 in 1001 list - but I am working on the items on it, lol. I love Tuffy - I want to take more pics of the babes this weekend in their costumes. Did I tell you Molly and Bob were an elephant and giraffe on Wednesday? :)
