Uhm, your toe is oozing...
Be prepared for some grossness.

So I've been fighting a truly GNARLY ingrown toe nail. We're talking big, red, infected and really REALLY hurty. I considered posting a picture (which I recently figured out how to do Hooray!) but feared breaking the camera with the ugliness. Anyway today I couldn't find my nice comfy open toed sandals before I had to go to work at 7 (tomorrow, I get to sleep in!) so I had to wear real shoes. Which I haven't done since ooooh Mayish. The toe didn't not fare well against socks and shoes. In fact, I was limping around by then end of the work day. Finally I got to go home and peel off the socks and shoes and beheld a big white puss-filled...pussiness. As any normal person would do, I reached down and squoze it a little and yep, you guessed it, oooooooze. Lots of ooze. More ooze than I thought would come out of one toe. So I gave myself some surgery today. Hopefully I have won the battle against the ingrown toe.

Look! It's me!! From like four years ago. But still that's me! My hair isn't that dark anymore, or that long, and I seem to have "misplaced" the shiny pleather camel jacket. But everything else is pretty much the same. I'll try and get a more recent picture on my next good hair day. Speaking of, I got the LOOOONG overdue haircut today. Hooray! The almost mullet is gone! I'm so happy!

By the way, I have a new blog. As if this one isn't enough. But the other one is just opinions and me being critical. I review books I've read, and movies I've seen, and music I've listened to. If any of you want to get in on the reviewing fun e-mail me a review at Or just tell me and I'll make you a contributor. Anyway I thought it would be fun. Bye for now!

You are super cute! But probably not your toe. That is gross.

look how cute you are!!

I have waged battles against ingrown toenails for about 15 years now. I always win. sometimes I have to have the help of a podiatrist (okay, maybe like 3 times a year with him) but I still win. I even had "surgery" to remove part of my nail so it would, ahem, never grow back, but it failed. miserably. so I feel your pain. since I've had them so often for so long, I read your post and was like, yeah, I love the ooze. the ooze means it's not this red hot infected sphere of instant pain. at least when the ooze comes out, you get a little relief.

go to the podiatrist. he'll get it out lickety split.
