Another jolly finger post

Welcome, dear readers, to another episode of “Trying to Mutilate Yourself in Six Easy Steps” with Melantrys.

Step 1: Pick a tree that sneakily started to grow on its own behind the lilac. Better yet, pick two.

Step 2: Fetch a spade and start to dig.

Step 3: Dig closer to the trunk by hacking at tree roots with the spade.

Step 4: Forget you are working close to a fence.

Step 5: Hit fence post with a finger in mid-hack. For good measure, don’t just hit the post, but scrape along it as well.

Step 6: Sink to knees while pressing your hand to your chest.

finger 1
Is this my finger joint?

finger 2
Actually, I don’t want this to be my finger, ‘k?

finger 2a
Actually, the whole of the photo is way more horrid than the cutout I posted above (Update 2009/07/10)

It’s a shame, really, that the colour isn’t coming out so well in the photos. In real life the joint is a truly interesting shade of blue.

Update (2009/07/04):

Went to my regular doc yesterday, and he was happy I’d already had x-rays done to rule out a break cos from the looks of my finger he’d have suspected one.

Here’s a pic of my finger today. Add a bit of blue in your mind; the cam’s still eating some of the colour.

I think it’s fascinating how the blood is wandering off into various directions (lower finger joint: purple; upper segment of finger and knuckle: blue to purple to green)….:

finger 3
Look at the pretty colours!!!

    @ Lynnette: No, but it’s the same hand, so I suppose the ring finger of that hand will be starring in the next bizarre accident… :shifty:

    @ the extremely nasty Kitten: :P

    Poor thing!

    I had a lot of hand accidents lately, from knife cuts to closing the drawer on my hand :|

    one scar as bugging me because the skin lost it’s details and looks so smooth. I keep convincing myself that people envy me for my cute hands and it has nothing to do with being careless :D

    Didn’t I recommend protective gloves the last time this happened?

    Ah well, I got a big splinter in my finger today. I don’t wear my gloves as often as I should either. ;)

    @ Attawie: Girl, be careful; you need your hands!

    I like the way you blame your clumsiness on other ppl’s envy though, maybe I should try that as well….

    @ PH: The swelling went down, yeah (see update), but the colours have become even prettier.

    @ David: Well, I suppose gloves would only have prevented me skinning part of my finger, not the worst bit, which was definitely the bruise.

    Aw, poor splinter-fingered you!

    @ Brab: Ohhhhhhhkay?

    Amazing how the blood just sloshes around in there, isn’t it? :P

    I am glad to hear it wasn’t broken. :)

    Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the internet
    the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I
    certainly get annoyed while people consider worries that they plainly don’t know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out
    the whole thing without having side-effects ,
    people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more.
    Thanks
