Facts about onions and knives


Interesting fact number 1: If you cut your finger while dicing onions, it hurts really, really bad. My theory is that you just introduced onion juice to an open wound; not a recommended practice.

Interesting fact number 2: Once that cut stops hurting, it seems to heal a lot faster than I remember knife cuts healing. My theory is that you introduced onion juice-- which I seem to recall is a natural antiseptic-- to an open wound. Perhaps something to keep in mind. (Maybe I should try onion juice on my newly-pierced ears...? Oh wait, maybe not. See number 1.)

Interesting fact number 3: Having a bandaid on the tip of one's finger is very inconvenient to typing on a computer keyboard. And fixing the increased typographical errors increases dramatically the time it takes to type something.

Interesting fact number 4: In spite of the unfortunate incident, the lasagna turned out wonderful.

Since your blog is no longer public, apparently the updates don't show up on my blogroll. So, I have missed the last few updates! I'll be more faithful to check.

So, interesting fact number 5 is that if you get onion juice on your hands and wish to get rid of the smell (which otherwise can linger for two or more days!) you can rub your hands on a stainless steel pan, spoon, or other implement. Don't know why it works, but it is fairly effective. Mmm. Lasanga. Haven't had that in a coons age! :)

I'll work on that meme later. Gotta have a nap right now...
