OH THE IRONY!

was out to the shop, decided to take an extra walk around the block to enjoy the smell of spring in the air. I had as always my mp3player with me listening to music.. cant live without music.
but beeing clumbsy, I tripped over my feet or something, fell over on the sidewalk and scrubbed up a knee and a palm of the hand.
and the irony was that I when I fell was jumping around in happyness over life, the universe and everything and rutles was in my ears... the song was "ouch" and neil had just declaied that his feet didnt touch the ground. you cant make these things up! if it didnt hurt so fucking bad I would have been laughing about it!

Lvndr HppE: Thina, I got a Rutles cd in the mail today. I was listening to "Ouch", and started thinking of you. Suddenly, I felt like I probably shouldn't dance around too much to this, or I might fall. lol. You've jinxed the song for me! :-P

the_thina at 7:48 pm April 27

hahaha. sorry about that. :P

the_thina: and now all of the scab has fallen off! the skin under is red and thin, but its SKIN, and dont look like its gonna become a big scar from it either.
dont think anyone who dont know its there would notice it even now.
and looks like I got it propperly clean as well, dont see anything under it that can be remains of gravel or anything. that was the thing I was worrying over the most, it simply was hurting so bad when I just had fallen for me to be able to clean it very much

Holly at 10:13 am April 27

I'm glad it healed so well for you. Now, make sure you don't trip again :)

the_thina at 12:20 pm April 27

well, Im rather clumbsy + my shoes is a bit too big so I cant give any promises. but I will try

Lvndr HppE: Whatever you do, dont take the scab off! You'll be left with a scar, and based on the size of the scab, it would be a really nasty scar if the scab were taken off before the wound heals. Not to mention, it would be a scar that would stay with you for the rest of your life.

the_thina at 7:38 pm April 22

no no, I know better than that. Im gonna et it fall off by itself. scars dont bother me, I have plenty all over my body including my face, but I DONT want to have a open wound in that size on the hand again. no way!

Lvndr HppE at 7:40 pm April 22

Alright. I thought you'd know better, but I'd thought I'd say it anyway. It was my motherly side coming out, even though you're a year older than me. ;-)

the_thina at 7:41 pm April 22

haha. ^^ and I thank you for the concern. :)

Lvndr HppE at 7:43 pm April 22

No problem. I have a friend whose a few years younger than me that is motherly to me.

Lvndr HppE at 7:43 pm April 22

So, that's probably where I get it from.

the_thina at 7:46 pm April 22

yeah, but Im like that too. its our female instincts I guess.
but its a sweet way to get showed that your friends care about you. :)

crzyltvn: Ouch! Nothing but a flesh wound right? ;)

the_thina at 7:31 pm April 22

haha, not even that, its just the skin that got scraped off, but that dont stop it from hurting. but its been 10 days now and begin to get better

crzyltvn at 7:33 pm April 22

Good thing it's healing.

the_thina at 7:35 pm April 22

yeah. and seems I got all the dirt out of it, shows no signs of getting infected. right now its just itching

crzyltvn at 7:36 pm April 22

Itching is good. And do take the advice of Lvndr HppE and don't take the scab off. Hopefully you're not like me who has to pick at scabs. :P

the_thina at 7:40 pm April 22

no, Im not gonna take it off. just keep it smooth with vaselin. :)

mrsCutout: I had posted something here long ago but i see it actually wasn't posted ehem...i hope you are better now it sounds horrible duh! Ironic yeh haha things like that happen to me too!

the_thina at 2:22 pm April 22

Im a bit better now.I can acctually move my thumb again now! but have a giant scab (is that the english word for the surface that forms over a healing wound?) that is itching like hell.
but it was VERY ironic.
neil sings "the way I feel for you MY FEET DONT TOUCH THE GROUND" my feet things "thats a good idea!" and KABLAM Im on the asphalt. hahahaha

TheSister91: OUCH!

TheSister91: OUCH!

Holly: I saw little old lady bowling w/ her family last Sunday & she stepped over the foul line right onto the lane & fell face first, she put her hand out while she was falling & snapped her wrist. It was terrible!

the_thina at 9:23 pm April 16

oh crap. :/ poor her. I have done the same trick as her, but I sipped on ice outside, fell backwards, broke my arm and hit the back of my head in the ground. and fainted by the blow to the head, right outside on a street in the middle of the winter. I then went to the nearest house and rang the bell, the pepole inside first thought I was drunk (witch I btw wasent)
it is btw the same hand/arm as the one I broke that time that is hurt now.

Holly at 8:40 am April 17

ooh, that sucks! I've only every broke my nose (my sled ran into a snowman when I was a kid) & my fingers when I was a really really little kid (my sister never seemed to want to wait until I got my hand out of the way before she shut the car door b/c she did it to me a few times).

the_thina at 9:03 am April 17

aaaou! well, I have ony broken a bone that one time, thank god. and that was when I was about 12.. but the worst thing is that I havent been able to play the guitar since then, because the bone heald crooked. so I cant bend my wrist in a guitar-paying-angle and move my fingers without it hurting like hell. and I used to be pretty ok on the guitar as well. :( have been thinking about learning to play right-handed, but... I dont know, it seems to be very complicaded, bacause if I do I dont want to put the strings in backwards order, that is cheating!

Holly at 10:33 am April 20

again....that sucks! I attempted to learn the guitar when I was a teenager, but I couldn't get the hang of it. So, I took cake decorating classes instead. Do you pay any other instruments?

the_thina at 10:56 am April 20

well... I can sound out songs on a piano if I get to try for a while, but I dont know how to play with both hands or any notes... but have been thinking about picking that up on my old synth I had when I was a kid. I used to be able to play that wooden flute you know (are they called recorder? that whats pops into mind) when I was a kid, but I stopped since I find it a boring instrument

no idea why that posted twice...

Holly at 12:27 pm April 20

just making sure I was paying attention :)

the_thina at 4:03 pm April 20

haha, no that wasent it. my cat came and walked over the keyboard when i just clicked "post" guess she did something.

Holly at 7:47 pm April 20

someone stole my cat. they had done it once before & came looking for him telling us it was an accident b/c he looked so much like their cat...needles to say, they moved out and Tak was gone. My son is so upset, he talks about him every day. He calls him Agent Tak, & tells me he's a spy and must be on a secret mission, that's why he's not here.

the_thina at 7:55 pm April 20

but what assholes! how the fuck can you do something like that? its kidnaping! :(

Holly at 8:19 am April 22

yup, the only thing that makes me feel better is at least he's being taken care of. But Connor really thinks he's going to come home someday.

the_thina at 12:01 pm April 22

oooh. poor kid. :(

Holly at 8:03 pm April 22

he's resilient :)

arkennedy: When I started reading this John Cleese saying "It's only a flesh wound" and "I've had worse" came to mind. I hope your okay now.

the_thina at 3:27 pm April 14

haha, yeah that is fitting too. but just "my feet dont touch the ground" and BOM over falls thina. haha.
Im pretty ok now, just got a wound in about 5x5 cm on my palm of the hand. but I have ceaned it and hope for the best. hey, at least I didnt break anything! but Im sure this is what I get for living through this whole winter without slipping on ice one single time

the_thina at 3:28 pm April 14

cLeaned its supposed to say

arkennedy at 4:36 pm April 14

I'm glad to know you're okay :)

the_thina at 4:45 pm April 14

thank you dear. :)
