somehow, in the midst of watching that awful football game and playing hours and hours of rock band (drumming skills may have actually decreased) i stubbed my toe something awful on a some sort of floor thing and when i looked later, my toe had blown up to twice its size and was all black. does this mean it's broken or just severely walloped? in any case, i apologize to the two awesome folks who were having birthday parties last night that i did not attend because i could not walk. however! in moaning and groaning about the pain, i remembered that i had a can of pineapple juice in my bag so i drank that and i am convinced it reduced the swelling. however, i am apparently the sort of woman who now carries around pineapple juice in her bag, so my opinion may mean very little to you.
