Previous Drivel | Further Drivel

Ouch. :-(

Just a short announcement to say that I am indisposed.

I encountered a shiny floor at work which was in the process of being polished and, in the style of a personal injury claim ad., flipped over sideways and hit the deck, smacking into the floor with my left temple.  I now have a lovely swollen area by my eye, with a bloody cut for decoration.  Man, I'm going to look really mean tomorrow, when the bruises start to flourish!

I was looked after very nicely and solicitously (I think they might be worried that I'm gonna sue 'em!!), and the on-site medical people patched me up, made me spend an hour lying down and gave me tea and biscuits. :-))

Now I'm at home, convalescing.  (I've always wanted to 'convalesce'.  It sounds sort of dignified, old-fashioned, and relaxing...)

Hmm, I guess this means that my face is going to match my hair... neat-o. ^_^

Ouch! Very sorry to hear about this. I hope you're feeling 100% soon. Convalesce away! Find yourself a nice book and put your feet up for a while.

What a slapstick charlie you are *s* No, that would have really hurt. I hope you will be okay and won't feel it weeks after. Sometimes falls like that can jolt all your bones about. A quick visit to the chiropractor when you're up and about again, might be a good idea.

I'm feeling quite a lot better today. Although a chiropractor would probably have a field day with me on the best of days! (Awful posture. I should have walked around balancing a book on my head more often as a girl...^_^)

Did you ever see that tv show Ladette to Lady?

Bits of it, but I'm not very fond of 'reality TV'!

Mind you, the 'Pygmalion' format is eternal.

Other than slouching, though, I'm pretty ladylike already! ^_^

Eavesdrop, snoop, and sigh with yearning...

This journal is not a private diary, it is more like an occasional, imaginary column. Therefore, much of it is on public display. However, if you want to read my occasional attempts at creative writing, my Caution Elf tells me I should only show that stuff to my friends. You know what to do. :-)

NB: If you add me in an unsolicited fashion, please introduce yourself. Otherwise I will probably ignore you.
