A Quick Note...*** Cross-posted on my Mirz123 account: ***
Shortly after my last journal -- about 2 weeks ago -- I had an accident. I fell down a full flight of stairs. My foot missed one of the steps. Problem was, I had a cup of coffee in my hand by the side of the railing. Despite letting go of the cup (yes, coffee EVERYWHERE), I couldn't grab on fast enough. I pitched forward and somersaulted down to the bottom, landing on my shoulder/face. Yes, I was lucky I didn't break my neck...the doctor even said so. I ended up quite injured: fractured shoulder, concussion, and tons of bumps and bruises. And, now to learn that I also have bursitis in each shoulder. To tell you the truth, the bursitis is more painful than the other stuff, OMG.
While that is a funny image (and yes, I need to laugh or else I'll cry), I have been using my story to remind people that a fall can happen. Also to stress that if you walk down holding your coffee or whatever, make sure it's in your other hand, away from the railing. Lesson learned for me, the hard way.
As I'm in extreme pain still, writing and pixelling has been difficult. As well as replying and commenting and all of that. I do hope to catch-up this weekend. No promises, because I never know how I'll feel. But if you see a blitzkreig come in from me, you know why. I do want to thank Synfull
for keeping things up at NaNoEmo
while I've been out of commission. Plus, a thanks to all of the emoticonists who have been contributing. It's so much fun, and quite cool, to see such great emotes coming through the gallery.
I also want to take a minute and pimp out the 2015 Emote Secret Santa. It's always a lot of fun, and you don't even have to be a great emoticonist to participate. Just commit to making an emote gift for someone else. For more details, check out the journal below...
Emote Secret Santa 2015The Aim
EmoteSecretSanta is an emote gift exchange that opens up every winter. Every participant will make one gift for another participant, chosen at random, and will receive a gift in return. We hope to spread a little joy this holiday season and that we can get everyone in the emote community a gift this holiday season!
Keep in mind: You do not have to be any sort of religion to take part in EmoteSecretSanta, nor do you have to be a master at making emoticons. We just hope you come with an eagerness to try to make the best present you can for whoever you're assigned.
Anyone who is interested in EmoteSecretSanta, send a sign up note to the group. This note should include information, like possible th
Much love to all of you. Miss you much. Hope to be back in full form EVENTUALLY. Just have to convince life to keep from kicking me in the teeth...and down the stairs.
