Another picture of that buck I spotted yesterday, from my little Olympus. Unfortunately I only had the 20mm prime lens with me, no zoom. But I do like how he’s framed by the leaves here.

i can’t even throw the double bird rn

Still trying to get my insurance company to let me pay them. And they won’t pay for any medical services till they do, so no x-rays for these fingers.

It was really interesting to observe how my body reacted to the shock of getting its fingers squished in the belt sander (yes I know it was my own damn fault and I won’t make that mistake again!). After the adrenaline rush of the initial trauma, I got dizzy and my vision darkened, my heart slowed way down (it’s usually around 70 bpm [unless I’m having an anxiety/panic attack, in which case it shoots up to 120], and it dropped to 30ish), and I got all cold and sweaty. I wasn’t frightened or freaked out at all, it was just my body doing its best to make sure I didn’t bleed out in case my fingers had been severed. I just soaked the injured fingers in ice water and put my head down on my bench for 20-30 minutes or so till my heart rate came back up and I stopped blacking out. It’s been a long time since I injured myself badly enough to have those effects. The last time was probably 10-12 years ago when I squeezed a glass vial and it shattered into my fingers and blood spewed everywhere. And it only lasted a couple minutes that time.

Anyway. These fingers better heal enough for me to play the ceili on Saturday. If they’re still not working I could probably just play the pipes, since it’s only the first joints/pads that are crushed. But I don’t wanna.

acidsmovingcastle replied to your post: I touched something I should not have …

omg what happened? are you okay? gfjobhngk

acidsmovingcastle Caught my first two fingers in a belt sander belt. It hurts a lot but they’re only fingers, and they’re still attached and I don’t think they’re broken. Just smashed real good. 

I touched something I should not have touched today. #owie
