50 links

Yo everybody I changed my header, it's basically the same but with a better picture of me so the internet thinks I'm cool, in case the internet ever comes around here to see what I'm up to.

I thought fifty links was a lot but as I'm about to post this I actually have another ten or so ready for the next links post. So get ready, there's probably another one coming in the near future.

So here's a story from last night about my toenail. You know how when you are clipping your fingernails and sometimes the nail will still be attached at the corner, and then you just grab it with your other hand and pull and it pops off and then you throw it in the garbage or whatever? Well I was cutting the nail on my big toe and this situation occurred, except rather than just coming off like a regular toenail clipping would do, it stayed attached and tore a thin strip of my toenail right off, up the side, all the way to the nail bed, hangnail-nightmare-style. And then ALL THE BLOOD came out. It was not one of my finer moments. Oddly enough it did not hurt and continues not to hurt today.



I wish I had a girl gang.
