Mangosteens (not to be confused with mangoes) are a wonderfully tasty tropical fruit that also happen to be pretty darn cheap in Southeast Asia, so I got a big bag of them at the grocery store. Unfortunately, as I was slicing one open, the mangosteen pulled some kung-fu kind of maneuver and got out of the way of my knife and I cut myself instead.
Here’s the mangosteen in question:
I probably should have known better than to mess with a piece of fruit that looked like that. Alas, I have given myself a nice cut right skipping across my middle finger and all the way across the ring finger, right across the entire joint the joint so I can’t actually bend it. I never appreciated my right ring fingertip. Now I do. At least it’s not my painting hand!
Since I’m out of painting commission for a couple of days, I’ve been trying to get my hobby room together. Besides nails, I also like to paint and do beady-type wire stuff, so I’m going to try to store everything together. I’m going to get some wire shelves over the desk and hang baskets from them, I think. That should allow me to store a lot of little things and keep them organized. We’ll see how it develops from there!
Not exactly luxurious but it will be a fun place to hang out and do crafty type stuff. Luckily, I am comfortable in small places after my time in Japan.
