Rustle and snap

I've learnt this week that pink plastic aprons make me look ridiculous, and medium-sized rubber gloves are just a smidgeon too small while large are far too big. Evidently I have oddly-sized hands.

On the plus side, tearing them off in a dramatic stylee makes me feel like I'm in ER. And I mean good ER - like when Clooney was in it.

(First post via iPhone people - yay!)

yay for IPhone messages! And I'm first! Woo hoo!

Okay, why were you in a pink plastic apron and wearing plastic gloves? Do you have a Frankenstein lab in Sparky Towers?

I got to use plastic gloves when we had CPR training. You're right, the snap of the gloves makes me feel like I should be shouting stuff like "Get me the defibrillator, stat!"

yes, to echo tara's question - what were you doing in that ensemble?

we hope it wasn't surgery on your iphone!

Dinah said...

whoo hoo! iPhone!

Your nike widget looks like an inchworm.

T-Bird said...

I think it looks like one of those Easter Island statues that has fallen over.

Dinah said...

hee. It does.

We couldn't be Hand Twins because large size Marigolds are still not really big enough for my hands.

And yes, what were you doing dressed up in layers of rubber? This isn't going to be some sort of fetish thing, is it?
Or a response to the comment thread at mine?

Hey, no mention of the fastest mile yet. Get that blog updated Sparky.

Tara - You are first! And to answer your question - and that of Missy&Chrissy too - I was visiting my Grandad as he's in hospital at the mo'.

Dinah - An inchworm is about as far removed from Alfred Hitchcock as is possible, I think!

T-Bird - How very highbrow of you! Actually, those statues have high brows, don't they?

Inexplicable Device - We can't be hand twins? Damn, that's a real shame. Whatever shall I do?

I was practicing my Grey's Anatomy Dr. McSteamy or dreamy or whatever he's called impression. Don't they wear plastic aprons and gloves?

Tim said...

Sweatband! God, yes, I forgot about that!


The latest graph - the one that looks like either an inchworm or an Easter Island statue depending on how much of a mentalist you are - shows the data from a run Sweatband and I did last night. And you see that peak towards the end? That - according to Paula Radcliffe's voice eminating from my iPod - is my fastest mile so far!

Good times!

Inexplicable DeVice said...

Mostly, McSteamy just wears a tiny, tiny towel.

Tim said...

Ah, I see.

That must be rather unsettling when he's trying to treat patients.

Inexplicable DeVice said...

Oh, I don't know. It'd certainly take their mind off whatever was ailing them...

Tara said...

Aw, I'm sorry, Tim. I'm sending your grandad some healthy recovery vibes!

Tim said...

Inexplicable Device - No… I'm pretty sure I'd be a little unsettled.

Tara - That's really sweet of you, thank you very much! I'll let him know!

Dinah said...

You should take this opportunity to loudly exclaim to someone, "Dammit, [someone], I'm a doctor not a {something else}"

This thought and your post made me go seek out star trek knowledge! So now while I know the above is not factually accurate, it would still be fun.

Tim said...

Oh Dinah, that's an awesome idea! I could subvert it with irony - "Dammit! I'm an editor not a doctor!"

You're a genius!!
