Yesterday, my microwave smelt fishy after cooking salmon.
I saw a MN tip about putting cut up lemons in a bowl of water and microwaving.
When I removed the bowl, my thumb fell in and by god it burnt like stink!!

I had to spend the next 2 hours sitting with my thumb in a glass of cold water and DH and DSs had to run around getting lunch ready while I sat on the sofa and watched TV.

well you can't blame MN for not having the common sense that boiled/heated water is hot and might burn you. sorry...

For allowing me to experience the lives of those who don't know that hot water burns. [Grin].

Actually I blame MN for making me do hmm at my sister as she asked me to hand out balloons to kids at her DDs birthday with the instructions "save the boy colours for the boys silly, give x the pink one".

Not something I would have raised an eyebrow at before.

what mn can also be your saviour here - on a tips thread a few months ago someone posted that bonjela is good for burns - it really works, try it grin

Cointreau your tip should have said 'caution, contents will be hot after heating'

M&S spoonfeed me, why not you.

Actually it stopped throbbing after about 10 minutes but I stretched out my incapacity until I had caught up on my week's TV
[runs off cackling]

I blame mn for turning me into a bad tempered ald bitch!

Although to be fair, I was fairly grumpy before!

OP, more importantly, how does your microwave smell?

The state of my house.

My headache from thinking too much.

Aiding and abetting mybprocrastination muscle

Generally encoraging me to live a bit too much inside my own head trying to pin ideas and arguements down instead of striding around breathing in fresh air and other supposedly "better for you" stuff.

It could occasinally stop throwing up interesting threads if it wanted to. But it won't, so MNHQ has to ban me occasionally for six months of self imposed exile while I catch ip on housework and ...fresh air.

i blame MN because it's 8pm and i havent touched the housework.

Microwave smells lemony fresh, thanks for asking smile

OP - BTW I'm sorry you hurt yourself

The haircut. Oh dear.

Being Judgey about everything everyone does or says really shock

But not actually acting judgey or saying anything!

Grits teeth....grin

Staying up reading MN when I know I should go to bed.

So I blame MN for the bags under my eyes.
