no, kate doesn't beat me...

i'm just *really* clumsy. i fell down the stairs on friday at my sister's house. here are the bruises on my back as they appeared on saturday evening:

and here they are with a little more color today:

and if those aren't enough to get me a little sympathy (okay, it was my own damn fault - never again will i wear flipflops in the rain), check out the bruises on my forearms:

the one on the right is particularly impressive (and painful). this might be karma from negative cheering in the world cup (i.e. cheering *against* a team instead of *for* a team). but i bet you a $2 beer that i don't learn my lesson!

**p.s. please note: i was completely sober at the time this injury was sustained.

Good lord, I wish I had given you more sympathy on the phone!

"completely"?

Oh Shayne those are impressive! Purple does look good on you, but I think you're taking it a bit too far. Ibuprofen is your friend...

okay okay. i'd had a few green grenades. but i wasn't even really tipsy. maybe i was just too busy savoring the flavor of the gennessee cream stout lingering on my tongue to pay attention.

Genny Creme! Gennessee is too classic for this robust beast! Dreaming of Hugo's in Noho!
