So, I have hurt myself. Oh, not deliberately. I’m not nearly emo enough to do that. ;) No, I just sort of took a spill today. I was getting off my bike when I arrived at work this morning. (My car has not moved in…*counts*…eight days now. He is depressed, I think, but I’m having way too much fun…) Anyway, I didn’t lift my leg high enough when I was getting off the bike, and one of the bars of its frame got caught between the bottom of my sandal and my foot, and I was overbalanced, couldn’t compensate, and…yeah, went right down squarely on my butt. Pain shot up my lower spine, such that I couldn’t move for a moment, and then it went away. And now it just kind of aches. I took some ibuprofen to take the edge off.

It’s a different kind of pain than the other times I’ve hurt my back, though, which is kind of interesting. (Yes, my body’s reactions to injury and pain interest me in a “Let’s experiment on myself!” sort of way. Weird, I know, but…there it is.) Before, it’s always been that sharp nerve kind of pain. This feels more like muscle pain. And it only hurts when I sit, not at all when I stand or walk, I guess because sitting down rather…uh, abruptly, is what made it hurt to begin with. :) Unfortunately, my work is such that I sit for most of the day. So…yeah. Hopefully it’ll go away, and I haven’t done any more permanent damage. Because I’m good at doing that to myself.

So that’s my exciting news for the day. Don’t all have heart attacks due to sympathetic adrenaline rushes now. ;)

Oh, and I did the meme that all the cool kids are doing. I think I did this before, long ago, because I sort of remember it, but I’m sure my results are different now…

Actually, my butt is fine. It's my back, right where your back meets your butt. An ache kind of radiates from that area when I'm sitting, so I think something got a mite smushed in there...
