house disaster

Toes and Stroes

I cut my pinky toe on Wednesday on the bathtub drain of all bloody places, althought I didn't realize it till yesterday when it started to hurt. I think it got a bit infected. I soaked it in saltwater and whiskey last night and put some aloe cream on it and it feels much better today. Such are the trials and tribulations of a life of leisure.

I also wanted to watch Astro's Craig Biggio's 3000th hit on TV, but I incorrectly estimated he would hit that milestone today. Yesterday he had a 5 hit game and is now at 3002!. I watched it on Astros.com and youtube today but it just wasn't quite the same. I remember watching him from the loge seats at the Astrodome with my dad in his rookie season, and even then we were impressed by his hustle. It's the end of an era for players like him who stick with one team their whole career. I find it hard to get invested in players that just rotate in and out.
