At Least You Don’t Read With Your Toes

Look what I did to myself on Monday night:

If you can’t tell, my pinky toe is swollen and purple. Yup. It’s broked. And it hurts like hell. (I didn’t know cutting parsley is a dangerous activity, but apparently it is.) Thankfully, I only fractured it near the top, so I’m not stuck in a walking boot. I do have a nice limp, though. And my running regimen? Snort. At least it’s only for a couple of weeks.

In other news, the August Estella’s Revenge is up. It’s a small issue (it is August, after all!), but, like usual, there’s some good stuff. For more pictures of me (albeit when I was a kid), check out my essay on why I like children’s books. (There’s also my review of Wendy Shalit’s new book. And I really enjoyed Nancy’s interview with Colleen Gleason.)

And don’t forget the Bookworm Carnival’s August deadline is quickly approaching. For more details, check reading is my superpower (she’s hosting, after all).

Try not to break your toe doing it. πŸ™‚

  1. Thanks for posting about the blog carnival!Hope your toe gets better. My husband broke his little toe last month and he taped it to the next one for a few weeks. It’s better now. So there’s hope–you might not have to amputate πŸ™‚


  2. Heh, Kellie. And I’ve been taking advantage of it. I’ve been sitting in a chair reading for most of the day. πŸ™‚Annie — my pleasure. And thanks for the time frame. Hopefully, it won’t mess up our vacation next week so much.


  3. MELISSA. YUCK. Last fall I cut off the top of my thumb while cutting chicken. While I don’t feel your pain necessarily, I empathize πŸ™‚ At least your nails look cute πŸ™‚


  4. Heh, Julie. I do too. The worst thing about this is the fact that chasing K around is nearly impossible (ever limp after a 16-month old? Not fun). She’s even taking advantage of it! (Today it was running away with the toothpaste…)Corrine, thanks. I actually had someone ask if I painted my nails to go with the bruise. Ha! I did them before I messed up my toe. πŸ™‚
