The Stairs of Doom

Because I want you to experience the heady thrill of my falling down stairs/full arm cast experience, I present the following images (click the thumbnails for larger versions):

Starting from the left, we have ...

The stairs that broke my arm (seen from the top down; the carpeted runner at the bottom is where my head first came to a rest)

My first attempts at cast art (a three-dimensional box and a bunny - YES, it is a BUNNY, it's just that its paw is a little too long, STOP thinking what you're thinking)

A view of the black scuff mark made by one of my shoes as I was tumbling head over heels town the stairs (for reference purposes, when I stand at the bottom of the stairs the mark is right at the top of my head, and I'm 5'8")

And here is an illustration of a chip fracture, the kind of fracture I have in my right pinky:

Su problema es que no habla espanol ;).

Dude, both that bunny "paw" and the "fracture" illustration make this a very interesting post. Cartoonish, even. (That right there was an LG reference that you'd get if you popped in for a visit :))

Oh My
Rappy am right.
Something Freudian about both pics.

Oh David, if only you spoke English (or I spoke Spanish) we could communicate as we are clearly destined to ...

The rest of you are just DIRTY. *smirk*

Must think happy thoughts.

The bottom most illustration is causing me the most problems, not the bunny. Heh.

Scatalogically speaking.

Also the illustration reminded me of the widely acclaimed and award winning movie Con-Air..."Just put the bunny back in the box"

John Cusack...why man, why were you in that movie. Please stick to doing adaptations like High Fidelity (Nick Hornby rocks my world).

Where is the photo of the mark on the wall?
And aren't those stairs awfully narrow?
I hope you're recovery is going well.

Holy crap your web-site-making-skills are so far beyond mine I'm embarassed to be alive now. Do you feel happy??

Posted by: Tim at March 2, 2005 04:33 PM

Timofy, don't be embarrassed to be alive! Most of this site was built using Movable Type; I just configured it.

Ben - happy thoughts about bunnies, right? Speaking of, did you find Donnie Darko in Hawaii?

Life, the photo with the mark on the wall is the one on the right. Look near the top of the big version and you'll see the black line on the wall.

There are "larger versions"? D'oh!
That's some shoe mark, hwg!!

Ow! I'm so sorry to hear about your fall. I hope you are on the mend and buy some lovely things to accessorize with your cast soon.

Also, those drawings are totally cartoony, lol
