It Had to Happen Eventually

Here we go again. Calamity, near disaster. I attract it like shit on velcro, it's a gift. On Saturday I slept in, did some packing, then went and helped out at a track meet. After the track meet, I headed home to keep packing and to wait for someone to come pick up the dresser they were supposed to buy. They never showed. :( Oh well. So I just kept on working. Around 8 I decided I was hungry but didn't feel like going out or spending the money to eat out. So as I'm packing and cleaning in the kitchen I throw some water on to boil for mac and cheese, fancy I know. I went back to my room and got distracted for a minute. Oops. As I'm walking back to the kitchen I think I smell something cooking. Weird, I hadn't put anything in the pot yet. No wait, that smell is something burning! I quickly realized that it was coming from a baking pan I had left of the stove that also had two plates and a wood/plastic spatula in it. Guess who turned on the wrong burner and nearly set the kitchen on fire? Yep. Me. It's ok though, I rescued it and turned off the burner before any actual flames started. Here's a picture of the damage. Pretty minimal considering what could have been.

So there you have it, my latest mishap. All I have to do is keep the flames to a minimum for one more week. :)

Speaking of, here's a countdown update...
