i can be remarkably stupid sometimes

I normally don't feel the need to blog the mundane details of my daily life, but I think this deserves to be mentioned.

I was about to have a cigarette just now, and due to the fact I was in the kitchen and that this strange paranoid delusion I possess that compels me to save matches (you know, in case the Russians drop the bomb and the power goes out and I need to light candles), I decided it would be a good idea to light the cigarette on the stove. I always forget that my stove sort of lights slowly and then jumps up.

As I was getting close to the burner, since it hadn't lit up all the way, the flame jumped up and lit my face on fire.

I managed to burn off part of one eyebrow and an eyelash.

Have I ever mentioned how cool my eyelashes are? They are unnaturally long. When I was little, I always used to get compliments on how pretty they were. It made me feel kind of weird, like, you know, a guy shouldn't have pretty eyelashes. So, one time I cut them real short, so that people wouldn't tell me I had pretty eyelashes anymore.

I've since gotten more comfortable accepting the fact that I am a very pretty guy, so it doesn't bother me that I have nice eyelashes. If I were Michael Stipe, I'd probably even wear mascara to accentuate them. I'd never cut them off now. But, I did burn one off tonight.

So, for those of you who know me in real life, take a good look the next time you see me and try to tell me which side of my face I nearly burned off.

Maybe I should take this as a Sign that I shouldn't have started smoking again.

You're what's known as "man pretty" like Kelso is on That '70s Show, Mikey.

Definately a Sign from On High that you shouldn't have started smoking again. Burning bush, burning Mikey...

Maybe this is also a Sign from On High that you should start wearing mascara?

I did that same exact thing when I was 15. Of course, I was wasted on the codiene cough syrup we had been chugging at the time.
