Crazy Thursday

First, chopped off bits of my finger (hurt and bled like hell).

Second, had my hair cut so I’m looking like a normal human being once more (well, normal human being with bloody finger, that is)

Third, went and bought an old laquered Chinese table from about 1820. And a bronze fertility Buddha (for purely decorative purposes, though). I’ve never seen one before: it’s a Buddha, holding a baby in his arms and sitting in a lotus flower. It’s very lovely and it’s also a nice example of how certain symbols and postures turn up in different religions. :O)
