Mister fix-it

This is why I should not be allowed to use super glue:


Just another example of what I said yesterday...

When you do it yourself, you'll screw it up.

Oooh, is it real super glue? If so is your finger all crispy at the end now?

The Wrath of Dawn said...

Don't think of it as a failure. Think of it as the first dino/human limb graft. You're going down in medical/paleoentological history, m'boy!

It's the birth of the Ricardipusisaurus. Raaaar!

I have one question. Did you have to stop and explain to J. R'pus that Daddy has to blog this?

Ricardipus said...

rik - yes, and yes.

Wrath - no, he's forgotten about that little wind-up dino by now. I finally got around to buying some new glue and thought I'd try fixing it. He'll never, ever know. Well, not until he's old enough to use the 'puter to Google his parents (like, next week probably).

'ozdom' - a s3xual fetish involving going 'down under'

Oops, there goes the PG-13 rating again...

Aunty Marianne said...

Couldn't you have gotten it stuck to some more humorous part of your anatomy? Come on R, you're not even trying.

P.S. I'm BACK! Did you miss me?

Ricardipus said...

Aunty - welcome back. Yes, of course I missed you. Fortunately, I also missed the humorous bits of myself with that glue...

Note for rik - it is, in fact, real Krazy Glue(TM). The good stuff indeed.

'ollloobh'!!!! The loud wail of woe when Certain Humorous Parts are Krazy-Glued(TM) together.

Acetone nail polish remover works wonders on accidental supergluings (don't ask how I know). But going to the store to buy it with a dinosaur leg stuck to your finger should win some kind of prize. :D

Ricardipus said...

Anna - thought of that, thanks... there is no such stuff at Chateau Ricardipus, but I think maybe I should buy some. 'Cos you *know* it's going to happen again.

The Wrath of Dawn said...

Oh yeah? Explain THAT request to Mrs. Ricardipus. "Next time you go to Shopp3rs, would you pick up a bottle of nail polish remover for me?" *blank stare* *crickets*

She'll be eyeballing your nails for weeks.

tehnqurs - What is said just prior to, "Yers welcome."

The Wrath of Dawn said...

Oh, and excellent loss of the PG-13 rating on the vw. It took me a minute but I got it.

What?

Oh. Um... I mean, I figured it out.

Ricardipus said...

I just had to post another comment because the vw is 'utfugm'. Definitions on a postcard, please...

BK said...

Ricardipus,

if you were a real scientist - a cell biologist - you'd have a valid reason for nail varnish remover (and access to acetone, come to think of it).

I have to explain to the Black Queen why my coverslips are stuck down with scarlet nail polih and not clear, of course.

zoe said...

how long did it take to type that post with a cloned finger ? i bet you look look really silly now - or has it fallen off ?

Ricardipus said...

Zoe - judicious application of soap and alcohol gel got the thing off, with some added wiggling. Thanks for asking...

BK - I've noted this before elsewhere but I'm no cell biologist. I used to keep rubber cement around in the lab for chromosomal in situ hybridizations though. but you knew that already...
