AUTHOR: Marty, a.k.a. canape TITLE: A really bad day for Shamoopie DATE: 9/24/2007 10:19:00 PM ----- BODY:
It is I, Guy. I am posting for the Shamoopie since she has use of only one hand today. Like the good person she is, she was cooking supper for us when the accident happened. I was reading the recipe to her when the pot ended up on the floor and she went running and crying.

Apparently it's bad to grab a pots handle when it has been in the oven for a while. :) Ouch. She grabbed the handle and then dropped the pot on the floor. Pupstar thought that it was the best thing ever. I was just plain confused as to what was going on. She has been good about keeping ice on it and some aloe. It looks like she will be fine in a few days but until then she is out the use of one hand.

So tonight she was resting on the couch and received an email telling her some really bad news. Her favorite shoe store is closing. No more fabulous boots. :(

We are hoping for a better day tomorrow.

I hope your hand feels better soon.

I am so sorry about the shoe store though, that's horrible. Many thoughts and prayers sent your way during this difficult time. ;) ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Liz DATE:Monday, September 24, 2007 at 10:41:00 PM EDT Oh jeebus!

First the hand, then the shoe store?

This is a TRAGEDY!

(heal well, canape)

(ps: this is what you get for cooking dinner! this is also why i order out!) ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Mamma DATE:Monday, September 24, 2007 at 11:20:00 PM EDT Cold water!! Not ice!!!!!

Bad burn and no shoes??!!

There are no words for the kind of bad day this is.

Feel better shamoopie. Real soon. ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous twolinesonastick DATE:Tuesday, September 25, 2007 at 12:08:00 AM EDT Ouch! Hope it feels better fast! ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Candygirlflies DATE:Tuesday, September 25, 2007 at 9:24:00 AM EDT Oh, Canape... So very, very sorry. I've done that, too-- usually with cookie sheets (WHAT in our brains doesn't make the connection that stuff coming out of the oven is HOT??! I think the excitement about EATING whatever delicious food we've just prepared makes the wiring in our heads go **PPHHZZZZTTTT!!**)

Order out for awhile, and when you're feeling better, let me know-- I've got some awesome online shoe stores for you!! They even carry BOOTS...

lots of love to you CGF xo ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Nancy DATE:Tuesday, September 25, 2007 at 9:33:00 AM EDT Thanks for the update, Guy.

Canape, rest your hand and take care.

And I hope you find another shoe store. ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous gail DATE:Tuesday, September 25, 2007 at 9:39:00 AM EDT POOOOOOOR Shamoopie!!!! Take care of that gem... ouch. ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Karaoke Diva DATE:Tuesday, September 25, 2007 at 12:52:00 PM EDT Owch! You poor thing. Hope your hand feels better soon!

And you find a new shoe haunt. ;-) ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Mrs. Chicken DATE:Tuesday, September 25, 2007 at 1:50:00 PM EDT Shamoopie. Too adorable.

Get better soon, Canape. Nothing is worse than a bad burn. You're lucky to have such a nice Guy to look after you and keep us up to date! ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous katy DATE:Tuesday, September 25, 2007 at 2:44:00 PM EDT I hope they have a big going out of business sale and Guy buys you get well boots. Take it easy a few days! ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Anonymous DATE:Tuesday, September 25, 2007 at 4:35:00 PM EDT Hey, everybody,

It's Bach, a student/friend of Canape's. When I was at her house today (Tuesday 9/25), her hand looked really good. Guy put aloe on the burn last night, and she slept with a glove on. You can hardly see where the burn is, even though it still hurts.

I was so relieved to see the injury for myself. Thanks to Guy's help, healing should take place quickly. Thanks, Guy.

If it had been me, I probably would never want to cook again, but Canape?? Not her. She was baking cookies when I arrived and PUTTING HER HAND IN THE HOT OVEN to take them out when they were done. She sent me home with some, and they were deeeelicious!

I'm pleased to come here with a good report for everyone.

Bach ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Ally DATE:Tuesday, September 25, 2007 at 4:48:00 PM EDT Guy, you are so great to post so that we know what's going on with our friend. Please tell Canape we're thinking of her and hoping her hand heals quickly. In the meantime, you should be searching the net for a new source of boots! ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Kathy's Surprise Party DATE:Tuesday, September 25, 2007 at 7:24:00 PM EDT Which is worse? No more boots or burned hand? I just can't decide.

I hope you recover from both soon dear Canape! ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Steph DATE:Tuesday, September 25, 2007 at 9:17:00 PM EDT Im sorry about your hand and your shoe store! I know hw much you love your boots!!! I hope your hand is better soon and you find another great place for boots. Have you tried piperlime from Old Navy? ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Jennifer, Playgroups Are No Place For Children DATE:Tuesday, September 25, 2007 at 10:19:00 PM EDT I hope your hand recovers quickly! Ouch. ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Perugini DATE:Wednesday, September 26, 2007 at 10:45:00 AM EDT Feel better soon!
