In a completely ridiculous Bugs Bunny moment today, I slipped while completing my crossing of a busy intersection, tipped over and thudded brain-first into a brick wall. I heard a bit of a crunch (neck-related) and then I was sitting on the sidewalk, surrounded by a fairly large group of onlookers, most who were trying to figure out whether to laugh out loud or call an ambulance. Two fellows insisted on walking with me a few blocks to make sure I was okay. Fortunately I had on a knitted hat that helped to block the impact, and I didn't bite my tongue.

 

I do actually seem to be okay, several hours later (although I have a lump and my neck is still sore and will probably be worse tomorrow), but am annoyed that I didn't see it happen :rolleyes:

I sympathise. One of my nastiest injuries was a disabling foot-to-knee sprain caused by a simple stumble over a curb (going downhill was the problem - my impetus wrenched my joints, even though I wasn't running).

 

All the best.

I went to the DMV to get a learners permit this morning. That was the first annoyance: that although my UK license is perfectly OK for driving in the US (as long as I’m not a resident), it is not suff

My new cowboy boots hurt my feet. I know I have to go through a breaking-in phase, but in the meantime my left pinky toe is cursing at me non-stop.

My neighbor apparently received a new t.v. for the holidays, which she placed against the wall opposite the head of my bed. And which she watches until about 1:30 in the am. Do you think it will be less uncomfortable if, in the note I slip under her door asking her to lower the volume, I suggest that as an alternative she invite me over to watch?

Maybe you should invite someone else over and make whoopee with a great many slams against the headboard wall and see if that has an impact on the TV situation. Although would it be any better if the TV were moved to the opposite wall?

Is she hot?

Hey. I hadn't thought of that. Now I have a reason to have sex.

Does the intersection have a traffic camera? if so, you may have missed the broadcast on the local news tonight. :rolleyes:

 

 

Hope the pains have subsided.

On Jan 5th, it's my 30th birthday. Now believe it or not, this isnt' the annoyance. I was taken out for dinner tonight by my father and I didn't get a gift. Nothing. A sweater that my sister bought me, but nothing from him. Now, normally, this isn't an issue, I at least get a decent Christmas prestent and write of the birthday (one of the perks of having a New Year's birthday and divorced parents. The one that has gotten off scott free for the last 27 years always forgets) but this year I received a gift certificate for a spa treatment (which I really don't like....OK I DESPISE!@!!!!!!!) and that was it. Turns out that my dad gave my step sister his visa and said "buy something for all of you", which is Myself, my stepmom and my stepsister. And what does the stupid fucking princess buy, but Princess Spa Packages for a spa that her mother goes to for bleaching (something I don't need, and my french manicures are better than any that I've paid for). I'm a little pissed.

 

I'm used to crappy presents from my dad, but, for the last 9 months, my sister has moved back in to the house with our parents, rent free, with her husband and BABY!!! While I, struggle to pay a quite reasonable rent on a fairly decent salary. FUCK OFF!!!....

 

:rolleyes:

 

I think I havve ranted enough. Thank you :blush:

Uh, but that sounds like you DID get a present from your dad after all - the spa certificate? I mean, he paid for it, right?

 

Is it a spa that ONLY offers bleaching and french manicures? I'd have thought that there would be other options - facials, massages, pedicures and whatnot. Surely you don't have to subject yourself to unnecessary bleaching to use the voucher...

 

Also, I might be wrong but isn't it precisely because she has a BABY! that your sister finds herself unable to pay rent - ? I mean, one less income, one more person... mine has done the same - why not if the parents are happy to have her...

I once managed to get a lower back contusion after slipping on some wet steps at the South Street Seaport. Since I couldn't move, the cops had to call in an ambulance to take me to the ER, so I had a nice little crowd gathered around me, hoping something really nasty had occurred. I almost felt bad that I'd disappointed them. :rolleyes:
