My downfall

December 21st, 2009 (10:35 am)

You know how in TV shows and movies, there's this cliche where you're looking through someone's POV and then all of a sudden the camera whirls quickly and then you're on the ground looking upwards? That cliche where you always go 'oh god, not this again'.

Actually, it does work like that in real life. One moment this morning I was looking straight ahead at the flats directly opposite, next moment oooo... clouds! Or in other words, that very very thin layer of snow that landed last night and looks just like slush is in fact pure ice. Ouch. Am alright though, only had the wind knocked out of me a little.

Just three days left at work now. Second class post should finally be dead now, but that just means first class is gonna go through the roof today instead. All those last minute cards written out over the weekend, all those 'how did I forget about X' presents....

Snow Miser

*pat pat*

Those of us from Northern Climes have all done it at least once. Some of us have done it twice.

I once did it while holding onto a shovel. I've never seen a shovel fly so far before or since. :-D

Glad you're okay after falling flat.

Yesterday's casualties among my friends and friends-of-friends include a vast pigeon's egg on the back of the head (my cousin, just before our family Christmas lunch, which she didn't eat), and a compound fracture of the knee and lower leg (belonging to a professional salsa dancer, of all the bad luck). It's treacherous out there.

(And I promise I haven't posted anything since the middle of last week.)

Be careful out there, heavens knows what your brain would be like even more demented.

And send me an e-mail. Your old address bounces, and now that I don't have evil professors and even evil-er students to deal with, I'm ready to have a life in fandom again.

Huh. Weird. My email address hasn't changed, but you're the second person to tell me that their email has bounced. Will have to look into this.
