Bits and bobs

First off: Happy Hanukkah!!

Next:

It's very awkward scrolling down the flist seeing reviews from this week's Merlin when I can't watch Merlin. Oh I can view it, but I'm not allowed to. My GF forbade me now that we are watching the show together from the beginning. I wouldn't say I overflow with generosity in this relationship, so I had to give her that much. I may Memory flisters reviews and come back to them later.

It's official: I have suffered for my Christmas decorations. I misjudged how high up on the ladder I was while hanging lights outside, and stretched out my foot to the floor and found air instead. Kerplop right on my tailbone on the concrete garage floor. Oooouch. Shocked I didn't knock my head on the fender of my car.

I'm rapidly falling behind in PlotWriMo. Finished day 6 on Friday and today is Day 9. Hoping to catch up. I am learning a bit about my draft, though, and yesterday while lying in a mellow space during acupuncture w/ nothing else to do I had a cool idea for draft 2. I will begin writing in January, but I think my focus that month will be on research to feed the idea fount.

I'm really very surprised that I'm as okay as I am after that fall. I guess my bones are pretty sturdy, because it wasn't the gluteus maximum that took the brunt of the fall, it was that triangular bit on my butt just above the coccyx. It isn't bruised, which is pretty weird for me, but it's sore, as is my right thigh.

Keeping my butt glued to the chair today working on PWM.

sounds like a plan and I'm glad the coccyx is just a little bruised since a broken one is quite literally a terrible pain in the ass

I am assuming I came out of it okay *because* I'm not in mortal pain.

right and you would be since there is a spinal nerve running right through that vestigal set of bones

I'm like a cat - I fall on my feet. Then momentum keeps me going until my @ss hits the floor.

Yike! I'm glad it wasn't as bad as it could have been.

And thanks for the Chanukah wishes!
