Just, don't call me Allison.

Owie.

Guys.

I’ve been all quiet for days because I’m embarrassed.

Because.

Well.

After a day of serious fun at Universal Studios on Sunday, we came home and I set out to make some deviled eggs for Mad Men viewing. And I was doing a great job, and I decided to use the immersion blender to whip the yolks with some greek yogurt, and dijon, and fresh dill, and lemon juice (yum, right?) and then, the mixture was super thick, so I quickly took my finger and whisked yolks on the outside of the blender back into the mixing bowl. Then I switched and did the same to the inside, except the blender was still plugged in, balanced in the crook of my arm. And then I accidentally tapped the button.

And then I essentially destroyed the tip of my left index finger.

We’re talking LOTS of blood. And an ambulance. And over ten stitches. And an Rx for some crazy shit that makes me all loopy and sleepy and sing songs about how I’m a bad blender holder and I’m sorrrrryyyy and I’m singinggggg.

Thankfully Matty took off a few days to take care of me. But I have a conference in Miami Sun-Weds and then I’m home in Boston to meet my brother’s newborn babe for a week. All with this massively bandaged frankenfinger.

So embarrassing.

So painful.

So dumb.

I mean, I suppose if you look at my cooking to injury ratio, whereas I’ve been cooking aggressively for a solid seven years now and have only one other injury (a cut on the SAME FINGER, natch) to report… I guess it’s okay. But still. YOU DON’T TOUCH THE BLENDER BLADE WITH YOUR FINGER, BEAUCHESNE.

THIS IS SOME ELEMENTARY SCHOOL SHIT.

GET IT TOGETHER.

I’M AN AUNT!!!!
Don’t want to steal their thunder from our mutual friends on the Facebook so I’ll just put this here and share with you guys!

Maxwell James arrived this morning, a week or so ahead of schedule, and is healthy and supposedly happy despite this hilarious photo above. My sister in law is doing “great” according to my brother, which I believe is code for exhausted and okay and just psyched to hold her little one. 

So, I was supposed to go back to boston in two weeks but now I’m debating changing around some flights. Can’t wait to meet this little cranky pants.
