I am running on caffeine

I made a discovery this morning. It's one which I should have made a few months ago, but clearly the message didn't sink in:

Hot peppers do not mix with contact lenses.

That's it. I didn't use gloves while making dinner last night, so all of the capsaisin apparently sunk into my fingers and therefore into my contacts when I took them out. For anyone who's never experienced the active burning of your eyes, let me just sum the experience up for you: OWWW!!!!!!

I eventually used latex gloves to put on a new pair (hooray for disposables) and that seems to have covered it. However, wtih all the gloves I'm going through lately, what with the hair dying and hot peppers, I really ought to just invest in a box rather than the little 5-pair bags they have at CVS.

My shoulders and upper arms are aching lately, as well....that's only because of scraping so much thin ice off of my car in the mornings - I'm using muscles I didn't know I had. Heh...'tis the season for tylenol, apparently.

Ridiculously tired, mostly through my own stupid fault. Hoping to do ZF, Saving Sharpbeak and the ST tonight with the guild..that'd be nice :-) And not only b/c then that'd be a lot of quests done, but because that leaves the rest of the weekend fairly free to do things such as go to Syracuse or shop for a new video card. Which reminds me, must check tigerdirect today...

I'm loving my iPod shuffle more and more, I really am. It's perfectly what I need, since I don't have the time nor patience to load podcasts and all that onto it every day (I'm not even sure that I could, although if they're just .mp3s I guess there wouldn't be a problem, once I got them downloaded. No iTunes on the iPod-connecting computer, remember?)

Oh yeah, 'nother batch of Firefly icons are up at _winter_icons_. Not that ya'll who read this care, but I might want the link someday.

Hot Buffalo sauce isn't to much fun either. Learned this back in the day.

Why? Well you know how it is, you're standin' around, havin' some drinks, someone's passing around the Buffalo Sauce and tells you to shoot it in your eye...

Some started doing it for kicks

but not really.

Hot sauce? *OUCH!*

The world is a dangerous place...it's enough to drive a girl back to wearing glasses :P

I was just talking to my partner about this very topic. You must be psychic or something! http://www.samsung1080phdtv.net/
