A Blue Perspective: Ow

Earlier today I tried to squeeze my human shaped body through a 75% human shaped hole on the soccer field, and dislocated my right shoulder. After relocation (man that nitrous oxide is some fun stuff – every Simpsons quote is guaranteed to be five times as funny, though it might repeat 6 to 8 times in your inner ear) it's a bit tough to use a mouse with my right appendage, and the left one just doesn't quite cut it (as can be seen by my rendition of Munch's The Scream to the left). So I might take a short break from XHTML/CSS/Design tomfoolery for a bit (though it probably won't affect the infrequency with which I post).

See you back here in a week! :o]

P.S. Although I can't conceive of a situation in which any person related with said institution will actually read this, I'd like to give a heartfelt thanks to Melbourne's Austin Hospital Emergency Department, who are a great bunch of really helpful and friendly people, and treated my relatively minor problem perfectly. Huzzah!

    I hope you feel better soon! (boy, you must have wanted to get onto that field pretty badly!)

    Thanks. It's my polite way of saying two people crunched me.

    As an eye-witness to this tragic, disasterous turn of events... I want to just say.. I feel for you buddy.

    Forget Thorpie and his falsestartery; him missing the Olympic 400m Freestyle is NOTHING compared to how much the Reds will miss you wing wizardary for the next few weeks.

    PS - I have an image of your arm anchored up - a la Capt. Harris from "Police Academy" after he sprays his armpits with Mace rather than deodorant.

    I sprained my ankle in a game of street basketball myself, yesterday. I guess I'll be doing MORE web- and design related stuff at least the next few days.

    Hope you feel better, mate. Nothing worse than a dislocated shoulder -- actually -- a dislocated anything.
