My unshining moment of the evening...

I've been a bit worn down from working and schooling and othering a lot, but I did a silly, silly thing tonight:

I licked the sharp side of a knife.

In my defense, the knives are shaped... weirdly... and the edge that you would think would be sharp is really the dull side and vice versa. And there was PEANUT BUTTER on it.

My tongue hurts.

I get to sleep slightly in tomorrow. I am pleased.

I also got superbowl sunday off, which I have NO idea how I managed, as I'm not a sports fan at all (the Lakers are playing the Dodgers, right?) and hadn't requested it off. Ah, well. I told them today that I need my Sundays back because I'm going INSANE with the nonstop moving around and DOING. I need a veg day where I stay in my pajamas for the entire duration.

Oooh, I also managed a 108 out of 100 points for my music theory midterm, which was one of the highest scores. I KNOW, I was shocked, too. I guessed in a lot of parts, and I've always been a great guesser.... at multi choice questions, not an analyzation of a chunk of Beethoven meat. (Well, technically, it was 108 out of 120, but 20 points were extra credit.) If nothing else comes of this class, at least I will leave with a greater understanding and love of classical music. Some of it is just so PRETTY. Any suggestions of stuff I should check out?

Yowie! And I thought a paper cut on the tongue was bad.

Congrats on the music exam - you rock!

Awesome icon, too!

I was scrolling down and read "My tongue hurts."

That sounded kind of interesting.

Then I went back and read your post.

My husband likes Mahler- it's very moody-- really gets the side of both bad and good emotions.

I like modern stuff- Steve Reich (i think that is the spelling). Anyone that uses xylaphones is good in my book.

While I've been known to lick knives as well, I usually am very careful with how I do it.

Here's hoping your tongue heals quickly.

I love the brouque (can't spell) period and what we got out of it, the repeating patterns the subtile changes, I do't know what but its just wonderful.

I cut my tongue once by licking a dill-pickle slice. No, I have no idea how I managed to do it. Yes, it hurt like a be-yatch.
