Well, just had my first experience with residual pepper juice in the eye at why-the-hell-would-anyone-still-be-awake-o'clock and no milk, milk substitute, or saline solution to be found. After several minutes of frantic googling I discovered that apparently propylene glycol is a capsaicin neutralizer because it breaks down oils. Unfortunately it's usually found in soaps and shampoos. Worse, NOT in any soaps or shampoos that I own. But I finally found it in my sensitive-skin makeup wipes. So after flushing my eyes numerous times only have the pain come back after like 5 minutes, I defied the warning on the back of the makeup wipe package that said "Avoid contact with eyes" (hilariously right next to "formulated for sensitive eyes" and "ophthalmologist tested"), stuck a makeup wipe on my eye for a couple minutes, and then rinsed again. And it actually sorta helped. Now instead of stinging, my eye just feels uncomfortably cold, like the new skin under a popped blister.

Lesson learned: if you chop chilies and wash your hands with soap and water, Satan's fiery toe-jam will still be on your hands nearly a day full of hand-washing later. So you damn well better wash with dish detergent or some oil-based soap and FFS wash under your nails, too. And if you're too stupid for any of that, at least have unsweetened full-fat milk of some kind (dairy or nut) on hand.

Also one of those rare occasions where I was exceptionally glad to be a female with all the accompanying primping and de-primping accoutrements.

I've always loved art. I spent my middle school & high school career in magnet schools for the arts. In high school I majored in printmaking & art history.
But I've also always loved science, & late in high school I realized that science is more lucrative & maintains its novelty longer. In particular, I find studying physics of space (i.e. astrophysics) an immensely spiritual experience, to the extent that one can be spiritual as a secular humanist. So that's what I'm pursuing my PhD in. Yep, I'm learning how to take the universe apart & bend it to my will. :evillaugh:
Art is still an integral part of my life. It's just not for a grade anymore :meow:.

:star:Note: if you want to color my line art, please PM me for permission (I have never refused—ask and ye shall receive the full-size line drawing), and when you're ready to post, be sure to include both my name and a link to my original line drawing in the description. If I have given you the lines to color, I will check in after a certain amount of time to ensure, if the work has been colored and posted, that my policy has been followed.
