Working from home.
A window open in the front of the house. Back door open, three feet from my desk.

So good.

the weird part about trader joe's is that its processed foodstuffs are probably their best offerings:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
belgian waffle cookies
Moochie (ice cream inside of sticky buns - mango flavor is drool.gif )
cuban canned beans
i would say they have good bread (but here in brooklyn you have lots of bakeries)
lots of other stuff - even their jelly beans are great (especially for road trips)

I'm happy because this elderly italian neighbor gave me this weird thing, its a huge rolled up log of prociutto thats wrapped in mozzarella cheese.

I was skeptical - but the wife and I started slicing italian bread and the prociutto/mozzarella log and we went through half of that M'F'er in less than 30min.

try the Moochi:



they get the mango ice cream flavor just right. (it tastes just like the mango ice cream they have in south east asian countries).

Reineer cherry season is coming too... trader joes has good ones available during the summer even for people in the North East US. drool.gif

I've been hearing Whole Foods.

I'm in the meat hook like every other day.

I heard they're going to put the whole foods in one of those huge warehouses on one of the North streets... like N12th St or something. The trader joes is going to be in greenpoint near the huge beautiful sewer plant that has those valentines day tours (kind of defeating the purpose but still green point makes sense).

That sewage plant looks awesome at night from the Kosciuszko Bridge.

Doc, how do I get my finger to stop bleeding?

if the cut isn't too deep/large just clean it with soap and water then apply pressure with cotton/guaze. if it really hurts putting it under tap water, try using NSS (normal saline solution) to irrigate the wound while cleaning it. from there put some neopsorin on it and apply pressure with a gauze until it stops bleeding. its better to air it out rather than have it wrapped up and moist so when you get home let it air out. obviously when you manipulate it the clotting will be mechanically disrupted so it probably start bleeding again - so just lay off using the thumb as much as possible.

if you need to use your thumb a lot (like for work during the day) go to the drug store/medical supply store and get some leukoplast tape and make your own bandaid by cutting a small part of gauze (the size of the cut) then tape over it with the leukoplast tape. Be very careful with the leukoplast tape though because it is like duct tape for the skin. just cut a one inch wide strip around 4 inches long and apply over the thumb and the gauze length wise (so you have the sides of the thumb still exposed). carry around extra gauze and scissors to cut and make a new bandaid for after you do things like wash your hands.

ibuprofen for the pain. remember its better to air it out (as long as its a small cut)

Thanks. There is a chunk missing from my thumb. Not sure if it constitutes as small, but it is on the deep side. No bone exposed.
