What a day....



Part 1:
Yes, I am a doofus....
So I went shopping last night for a new watch. Nothing special. I went to the local shopping centre. Two steps inside the door, I twisted my ankle. I kept walking - I have twisted my ankle lots of times, why would this be any different? Hobbled around the shopping centre, did what I had to do. It was painful, but I was determined to tough it out. By the time I got back to boyfriend's house, I couldn't weight bear on it at all. After X-Rays and 4 hours in the Emergency Department this morning, I now know that I have a ligament injury. I have an anterior talofibular ligament tear. A bloody painful one. And I can't even say "I was tap dancing".... "I was roller blading"... Nope, it's me. I was just walking. Walking in a shopping centre.


Part 2:
So today was the hottest day in Melbourne's history. I happen to live on the outskirts of the city, in a beautiful area. A beautiful area prone to bushfires. I was already crippled at boyfriend's house, but mum and the poodles have had to evacuate. We don't know the status of our house - won't know until at least tomorrow what is going on. But I am one of the lucky ones. I have a place to go, and all of my loved ones are safe. So far there have been 100+ homes lost and 14 confirmed deaths. These figures will no doubt rise over the next couple of days.

It feels a little like Armeggeddon around Melbourne tonight. And to top it off, I'm a crippled doofus.

What a day.

UPDATE:
The fire danger has passed for my house for now. The death toll in Victoria currently stands at 36 with 640 houses lost. I'm sure that this will continue to rise. It's pretty horrifying.

UPDATE 2:
I spoke too soon! More fires have begun around Warburton. *sigh* It's going to be a long couple of days.

Gosh I am getting old....

It is 17 years ago today since I saw New Kids on the Block in concert! Yes, I will admit to having crap taste in music! Penny and I saw them at Rod Laver Arena (which was still called Flinders Park in those days I think). We went and watched them get the keys to the city of Melbourne (a sister city to Boston, their home town) then we went and hung around the venue, and saw them arriving on their bus. It was the most exciting moment of my life! I can even tell you what I was wearing: A NKOTB T shirt that had "handprints" and "signatures" on it and fluro bike shorts! We had crap seats - second last row, right off to the side, but we didn't care. I screamed so much during the concert I coughed up blood for two days, and I suspect permanently damaged my vocal cords.
So am I that lame that I celebrate the anniversary each year? No, my cousin Greta was born while we were in the concert, becoming a reminder of my silly youth.
Happy 17th Gretski!
