HNT - The Ribeye Incident

burnOK, so here is the aftermath:

Now, at first glance, it doesn’t seem like much…a teeny little mark on my right foot.

It’s not that bad, really. A little burn.

How did I get it? Now there’s the story.

All I wanted was a good steak. It had been a while since I had one, and I thought I would make one for myself. I carefully made all the necessary preparations. Got myself a ribeye steak. Not the best cut, granted, but beef here in the UK is freakin’ expensive.¬† Anyway, ribeye.¬† Tesco’s finest. Aged 27 days. Seasoned, lovely, ready for the grill.

At this point, you’re thinking “ah, grease splatter.” Nope. Read on.

Steak in broiler. Smells wonderful. Almost ready to turn over.

Then, BOOM.

The fucker exploded.

No, not the steak.


Seriously. It blew the hell up. Rainshower of :scare: safety :scare2: glass over the kitchen. One piece actually melted the floor. One piece hit my foot, which resulted in the aforementioned burn.

Mr. Vanessa, vegan, did not fail to point out the irony.

Steak and oven are a total loss.

I’m grieving over the steak.

HNT - It’s A Wrap

This is from the same batch as my last HNT submission, but I found this filter that gives a really intriguing BDSM shrink-wrap-torture effect. How cool is Photoshop?

its a wrap!

Oh, and if any of you out there really want to spoil me, I’m dying for a legal copy of CS3 Master Collection. Maybe I can make it worth your while…I’m just sayin.’ :razz:

Happy First HNT!!

I’ve been reluctant to participate in Half-Nekkid Thursday but decided to play with my webcam for the hell of it. So, here, hiding behind a LOT of hair, is your closest look at Vanessa yet.

Just Me

(That is, unless you’ve seen the videos…)

Happy HNT!! (see Osbasso’s blog for details)
