Finger Action

Location : Reading, England.

Everytime I go swimming, the little finger on my left hand always turn numb after a while. I cannot understand why!!! I notice it usually happens on the 11th or 12th lap, then it stays limp and lifeless floating in the water like driftwood. Losing control of that finger affects my swimming strokes as I am not able to wade enough water to thrust myself forward. It feels like there is no blood running through that finger. Is there such a thing as finger cancer? =) Haha... I am a little concerned because I start wondering what if a part of my body has decided to simply die without me? I try to think positive and tell myself that at least there is still blood flowing through the most important finger between my legs. At least that makes me feel alive!

So I'm going on a surf trip after this entry post. Temperatures have dipped below zero for a week now and it is the coldest period of this winter so far. Two days ago, there was about 2 inches of snow on the ground. Babette turned white and I couldn't recognised her for a second because every other car around looked the same! Depending on the condition of the waves, I'm not too sure if I'm going to actually jump in the water. Just the thought of it now, as I'm typing this, makes me want to pee in my wetsuit! =)

Before I go, I've got some interesting websites for you :-

Well, you know how I have gone on a few times about my cooking adventures? Check out this link which is a nicely animated cartoon guide to cooking Vietnamese beef noodle soup called Pho on this website. It's probably the most famous meal to have ever come out of Vietnam. Oh, make sure your volume is turned on so you can hear the funny accent.

This one's a game unlike any you've ever come across before, I'm sure. Not for kids!

Circulation in your finger could be bad; will affect your other 'finger' soon if you're not careful...!

What would you rather lose? One of the fingers on your hand or the finger between your foot? haha.

I saw the pho website some time ago and thought it was halarious.
