Hello Kitty on My Forehead

weather: partially sunny
outside: 8°C
mood: down a few
hit points
I boo-boo'ed my forehead, so it's covered up with a Hello Kitty bandaid today.

I am quite possibly the only World Class Kitchen Impaired Idiot™ you'll ever know who can almost kill herself and have battle scars from cooking.

It wasn't entirely my fault. I was making dinner with Mother-In-Law Woman. I was chopping stuff up. When I'm cooking* on my own, I know when I'll be done, so I can fire up the stove when I'm almost done and the oil in the wok will be just hot enough when I'm ready to go. She cranked up the stove for me a little too early.

Wet vegetables. Smoking hot oil. You get the picture. As soon as the veggies went in, *ka-BLAMMO*. I'm really lucky it missed my eye.

But that's not as funny as telling all my co-workers that it's the latest rage among schoolkids in Japan to wear a Hello Kitty or Sanrio bandaid, for no apparent reason, on the forehead, fashionably tilted, just over one eye.

* By which I mean "randomly heating stuff up so that it results in something vaguely food-like in quality".

They totally believed it and weren't at all surprised, until I said I was kidding.

They know me all too well =D

I was reading quickly, so the first time I read that and raccoon714's comment, I thought it actually was a Japanese fad. XD If you post a picture, maybe it could become one. Who knows?

Unrelated to this - is UBC any good? What with the election and all, I've been eyeing Canada - also, I just hate my current university in Philly; I can't do anything at all in the way of Chinese here - and I've heard good things about Vancouver.

I probably won't transfer -- I'm only a year away from getting a BA -- but it's nice to think about.

Y'know, as much as I'd like to brag about my Alma Mater, I have no experience with the Asian Studies department. Sorry =P

The campus is beautiful though... *sheepish grin*

I don't know why that didn't occur to me at first =P
