The night Matt tried to kill me

As you may know, I have a love affair with my oscillating fan, Matt.
If not, here you go:
Matt is tearing us apart
In which we're the Donner Party
We have had our good times and bad. Now, he's gone and done it.

Let us set the scene:
We watch the movie, V/H/S . Don't do it. Any movie that is filmed with a hand held camera never ends well for me. Paranormal Activity 1-3...I am still recovering. Blair Witch was over 10 years ago, and I still get freaked driving through the woods at night. Cloverfield was the exception. That was just lame.
So I watch this freaked out movie, take a shower, and go to bed. Scott is brushing his teeth, and I decide, of course, it is time for Matt. My knee was hurting already from falling off the porch (I forgot I moved my steps..) so I had it on a pillow on the edge of the bed. When I lean forward to turn on the fan, I put too much weight on the pillow, and head first off the bed I go. I tried to brace myself with my left hand, but when booty & company starting the descend, my entire body shifted, my arm popped, and I was facing the opposite direction.
My back and hip were skinned up, because the bookshelf was an unforgiving wench. I knew my arm was hurting, but not until a minute or so after I stood up, I knew I was in trouble. I fall all the time, so I am used to minor injuries, but this was the Big Mamma Jamma.

My face^^
I wrapped it in a heating pad, propped it up, and then dug in the medicine cabinet for pain relief. I found a Lortab from when Scott was in the hospital.

As soon as I turned out the lights, I saw that half of the bedroom ceiling was lit up. Scott said it wasn't. I was convinced the creatures from the movie were doing something to my brain. I closed one eye, tested it with the other, and the light was still there. TURNS OUT, when I fell I flipped over the surge protector, and there is a dim light that shines. I never see this, because I have it turned the other way. Good to know I am not dying/being attacked. Later I KNOW I am hearing voices, and of course, Scott doesn't hear them. TURNS OUT, it was my iPod blaring through the earbuds that had ended up on the floor. Again, not being attacked by unknown entities.
It also turns out I am a lightweight in the drug department. I do believe I was levitating and I saw the Pyramids, Niagara Falls, and Woodstock. This little generic Lortab to me was what I can only assume be a Valium/Methadone mix for others.

However, I survived Hyperextended Elbow 2012.
Thank you to all my coworkers for helping me out when I couldn't use the stapler or get my money out of my pants.

Alternating between sling and ace bandage, I managed to work without whining.
I lied about the whining.

September 2012

September, like the past few months, was for the most part, uneventful.
Some stuff changed at work, it sucks, but I am thankful to God for my job, and I love it, and will continue to give it my all.

I discovered Rock Band:

I suck at the guitar, but found my niche with the drums:

You did not want to see the things I blurred out.

I have incriminating videos and pics of my fellow band mates :)

If anyone plays on Pogo, you know what time it is!! SPOOKY SLOTS!!!
I wait all year for this.

It also makes me happy that after weeks of waiting, I was able to hang my Halloween pot holders.

I am working on a wreath, and depending on how it turns out, I may/may not post a pic of it :)

Buy this album!!!

That is, of course if you LOVE to hear two awesome Swedish guys play the cello:

I started my reading roulette. For folks that don't know what that is, like, everyone, it is how I read and not lose interest. I know I do not have ADD, but lately when I read I lose interest, even when it is a very interesting book. So, I usually get 2 or 3 books, or in this case, 7, and read a chapter at a time.

I am currently reading The Scorch Trials, The Scarpetta Factor, Ice Station, The Mill River Recluse (on Kindle), finishing my Bible in a year (or in this case 3) reading, and I am rereading Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, and The Lost Symbol. Don't even think about trying to sit on the loveseat.

Read this!!!
The Maze Runner

I blogged:
Survey Saturday

The Miracle Diet

I cooked new things:
Onion Dip

Ham and Cheese Dinner Rolls

So yeah. Not much happened.
Here are some random pics.
Have a great October!!!
Anything is better than last year! :)
