pallas cat - chagrin
Hello! As you may have seen on my Twitter, I was struck by catastrophe again when I tripped over Scout in the dark the other night and fell into a cabinet. It was not a concussion--in fact, my memory is extremely good, and the only headache I've had was due to a massive thunderstorm--but the side of my forehead immediately swelled into a palm-sized "goose egg," as it is called, and by Wednesday, my right eye was mostly swollen shut. Today I can see a lot better, but in return, I look like I got in a bar fight. Apparently the black eye will only get gnarlier as the swelling goes down, so I have that to look forward to. I messed up my bad ankle a little, but not that much; I'm not in much pain at all, just my face is unhappy. What REALLY pissed me off is that I had had a really productive day working on the "Secondo" recap, and I LITERALLY THOUGHT TO MYSELF, "What's going to happen THIS TIME to make me fall behind?" And then that very night I faceplant into a cabinet. 

SO. In other words, I am obviously behind on things, particularly comment-reading. I've been trying to rest the last couple of days, mostly because my eye was swollen shut. But I did post a few things on Tumblr, some occasional tweets, and I mulled over the next recap. I think now that I've had a decent sleep, I'm getting a little antsy, so maybe I'll be getting back to that soon. 

Also: Tonight, the first Red Dragon episode airs in Canada! SPEAK NOT TO ME OF IT, I MUST GO UNDERGROUND UNTIL SATURDAY.

Ugh, that sucks! I'm so sorry.

Faces don't go in cabinets, Cleo. :/

So glad you're not seriously injured. I hope your face gets happier soon.

So sorry to hear that, Cleo!

Good grief, Cleo! Stay safe!

My sympathies.

Maybe it's time for some kind of "Cleolinda Has A Nice Day".

Seconded. Although it would be funny if Will came to the door with a black eye, and everyone was all "!!!??" and he was like "no, really just tripped over my pack of dogs"

Can we get you, I dunno, a flower crown or something?

That definitely doesn't sound like a good time. A few months ago I tripped on the stairs and landed on the floor, jamming my left middle finger, hitting my head against the bookcase and scraping my knee. It wasn't until later, when I keeled over in the bathroom, that I realized I got a concussion. Fun times...
