H is for Hands of Blue, Healed

Two by two, hands of blue.

One of the easy ways of discovering who is a Firefly fan is to show them some blue hands. If they back away in fear, you know they are Browncoats. "Two by two, hands of blue" is repeated by one of the major characters when she senses that these people are coming. They have hands of blue, pretty much like the picture, and can kill you with noise, in a rather painful manner.

However, the hands of blue can be good, when not in the Firefly universe. I've had some doctor visit lately (two hospitals and the dentist), and some of them have been wearing blue gloves (but this is not a G entry, it's for Hands!). I obtained these at one of the hospitals, while I was left alone in the x-ray room for a bit. I mainly got them because I love blue gloves (due to Firefly), and because they were an S. I've only seen them enormous before.

Tangentially related to the gloves, and accidentally H, my foot is Healed! When I went last week to the (private) hospital, I got another x-ray, and it showed that the bones had finally bonded together. It only took 5 months. I'm now waiting for the referral to start physiotherapy, as I have no strength or elasticity in my foot. But the bones are finally healed, so we are certainly more than half-way to wearing Heels again.

  1. Glad your foot it better. 5 months is a long time... Take it easy, just the same! ;-) I'm dreading the day I have to get my foot rebroken and reset... Ugh...

  2. Aargh no, not the Hands of Blue guys!
    (They come out of the black, they come when you call)

  3. hands...and purple hands...and tan hands...there are those of us who see many many colors of all sorts of 'protective personal equipment'! Glad they give you a charge, though.

    Also glad the foot is better.

  4. good good footy, nice footy! glad it got healed finally!

    I don't know what the blue hands mean, so I guess I'm not a fan ;)

  5. Oh, I'm glad you finally have two feet again! Yay.
