Full Disclosure: or how I learned to stop worrying and love the blog.

A little too much to drink + Kitchen Knife = Injured Thumb

Filed under: Uncategorized — horselover_fat @ 1:01 am

Last night, I was hungry for salad. Late night snack. And I had one of those pre-mixed salads in a bag. So I’m in luck. I guess.

Except the damn bag isn’t one of those “zipper pouch” kinds, which means I have to cut it open. And the scissors are all the way in the living room (all of probably 15 feet). Too far for me to travel. So I look around me for the nearest sharp object. A knife. I’m in luck again.

Now I should have gone with a slicing technique to open the bag, or even a poking one. But no, for some reason I go for a stabbing motion. Seemed like a good idea at the time.

First couple of attempts didn’t work very well, because the bag (being plastic and all) would yield with each slash. So I take my time. Carefully brace the bag against the counter with my fingers spread, holding it firmly in place. I’m ready for it this time.

Pull knife back. Aim. And…


Right on the side of my fucking thumb. I thought I’d hit an artery or something the way the blood just started to flow. But then again, maybe it was the alcohol in my system, thinning my blood.

Oh well, apply pressure, clean up blood. Had a hell of a time trying to eat my salad with one hand.

Sure hope I learned something from this experience, but probably didn’t.

Oh, and my thumbs okay. It’s just a small cut, there just seemed to be a lot of blood.

Allow Me To Introduce Myself

Who The Fuck Is Horselover Fat, And Why Does He Keep Interrupting our Conversation?”

I guess I’ve been putting this off long enough.

This being my first entry, I thought I’d start off with something simple. Just a little introduction for those of you who don’t really know me.

It seems, from my limited experience with chat rooms, that a persons vital statistics can be summed up with three simple letters: A/S/L. So, for the record; age: 30, sex: male, location: Lafayette, Louisiana.

Doesn’t quite seem to do the trick. Seems like I should add some more information to paint a more complete picture of who I am. The question is what set of data should I present to form a more complete and accurate picture of my life?

Well, here goes. Relevant information. As brief as possible.

My name is Ronald, or Ronnie, or Ron. I’m not from around here, originally. I was born and raised in Texas (it’s like a whole ‘nother country). I wound up in this great state when I came to live with my mother, around the age of twelve. Which means I’ve spent more that half of my life in Louisiana, for what it’s worth. Anyway, I never really adjusted to this state and it’s “cajun” culture. And to this day there exists a sort of uneasy truce between us.

The years after I moved here were mostly uneventful and quite boring. Didn’t make a lot of friends, but I was a pretty good student. At least through high school. When it came to college, I dropped out. Twice. This is a situation I would greatly regret and am currently trying to rectify.

So after the college thing fell apart, I kind of wandered around a bit. Met a girl. Got married. “Settled down” and had kids. I was 22 when I got married, and it was probably the single biggest mistake of my life (there’s so many to choose from). On the bright side, this “union” resulted in two very wonderful children. I am still amazed by the fact that two completely screwed-up individuals could possibly produce such amazing and (at least for now) well-adjusted children.

Which brings us to the current day (*). My “marriage”, for all intents and purposes, is over (except for the paperwork). I am trying to go back to school and, all in all, try to get my life back into some kind of order. Trying not to get my hopes up about school though, as I did a pretty good job of screwing it up the first couple of times. I know there are going to be a few hurdles to overcome with the financial aid thing. They aren’t to quick to hand out money to people who have the academic record I do. Still working on it though, just getting a little uneasy since the semester starts in less than a month and I still don’t have all the financial details worked out.

Oh, and I work for [insert name of world’s largest retailer here]. I count money for them, a job more tedious and ungratifying than it sounds.

So why the blog? I don’t know. Because I don’t want to continue living in a bubble, and the occasional feedback would be nice. Trey (Wilbur) has fixed me up a nice spot here and I hope to do it justice. There will NOT, however, be any discussion of philosophy or linguistics here. Not much at least, for that you need to go to thier respective sites. It’ll just mostly be me rambling on or bitching about whatever is bothering me at the time. I think I might put up a few links to websites that interest me. I would also like to eventually put up some of my own drawings or pictures once I find a place to host them.

For now, I’ll just keep it simple; until I “find my footing”.


(*) I’ve skipped a lot.
