Trying to make it to the end of the day alive...  
Ugh. For days I've been feeling like someone has been beating me in my sleep, but today has just been extra special on top of the existing blech.

Within 10 minutes of getting to the office, I snagged my hand on *something* and there was a pretty impressive amount of blood for such a tiny wound of mysterious origin.

Lunch was fail. Someone ate my freezie dinner and my back-up lunch can of split pea and ham soup ended up being "hearty bean and ham" instead. Yucky.

So, my coworker and I thought we'd take a little post-lunch walk... I got as far as the sidewalk and tripped over one of the transportation van's "safety lifts." I had been looking at the planes taking off into the bright blue sky and so went sprawling ass over teakettle into the parking lot. Owie. I scraped my palms, skinned my knee, bashed the other shin on a metal part of the ramp and may have slightly dislocated my shoulder - it had been hurting, but when I stretched it, there was a loud pop and it seems to be less angry. Just call me Grace... :/


45 minutes to go... Maybe I'll make it out without permanent damage from my cooshy desk job. :P

Ow! My lack of real progress doesn't sound so bad compared to your day. At least I enjoyed myself and avoided any damage!

I hope it all heals up quickly...

I am buying you a giant roll of bubble wrap for your next b-day so you can wrap yourself in it.

Wait, I know who you hang around with. Scratch the bubble wrap -- it would never make it out of your house with enough bubbles left to do you any good. (That, or people would have far too much fun popping the bubbles once you had it on. Hmmmm.... ;)

How about linen lined in fleece?

Ouchies. Talk about epic day of suck.

Feel better soon!

*hugs gently, so as not to harm anything else in you* Awws! Hope the rest of the day goes well and even brings some happy surprise! Heal quickly!

On a random note that may offer a tiny bit of solace - last night, at the end of my day, as I was checking for mail in my darkened stairwell, I noticed that my finger felt oddly moist... in my apartment, I discovered that I'd managed to gash my finger open... on, as far as I can tell, my doorknob. Its apparently the season for tiny annoying injuries from improbably sources.

Hee. Nice to know it's just something that's going around - hopefully it will pass...

...SOO?! Did you make it, or didn't you? Inquiring minds are dying to know, love!

Heal up- you have weekend fun ahead!

This is a good thing.

*starts looking around at the number of fleeces yet to be spun... these should work... nice, comfy wool.. enough to make good padding to be a "safe Eithni wrap"*

;) Try to stay alive so that we can at least *meet* at Pennsic!
