Hey, that was dumb!

This afternoon, I reached down to pick up something on the floor in my office. I completely miscalculated - or simply didn't think - and slammed my head full speed and full force into the edge of my desk. Nice, huh?

I saw stars, actually said, "Oh god, not good. Wow oh wow oh wow, not good..." several times, I think, and almost passed out. Now, I have a big old bump on my forehead, and I think it's bruising. Plus, my bad eye hurts, and I can feel pain all the way down to my shoulder (yes, the broken one, of course.)

I have no idea what I was thinking when I cleaned my own clock. I should put rubber bumpers on everything around me. Seriously.

Ouch! Hope you feel better soon. I remember getting a bump on the head once when I was a kid that was so big it looked like one you'd see in a cartoon...but it went down pretty quickly using ice.

And once again, I know you admire Magazine Man, but you shouldn't feel the need to imitate him in this fashion. :P
