Weekend of Peril

So yeah... in the 24 hours or so since my magnificent snowboard bail, the following events have happened:

Yesterday. Band Practice. I'm walking down the icy and poorly constructed wooden stairs from the studio to Otis' house. I slip on the third stair, cartoon stylee. Legs go flying up in the air and I come down on the stairs on my back and head with such force that most of the stairs are completely destroyed. I guess it was sort of like Chris Farley crashing through the coffee table... not very flattering. Fortunately, I had about 5 Ibuprofen in me to deal with the soreness from snowboarding, so I walked away reasonably unscathed.

This afternoon. The basement. I'm setting a rat trap to put up in the attic, as it appears our friends have figured out a way to circumvent the protective barriers I set up to keep them from crashing in our attic rent-free. Now, I don't know exactly what happened, but the short of it is that I triggered the trap on MY FREAKIN' THUMB. Holy crap that hurt. I now know how much force is delivered to the neck of our fuzzy pals when they go after that irresistable smear of peanut butter.

What's next? What further dangers await our hero this weekend? Rabid dog? Runaway bus? Nobody knows... but I'd advise you to not stand too close.

Once a car lost control and ran through the wall of my ex-girlfriend's bedroom while she was inside studying. During this calamitous time, I hope you will choose to stay away from walls adjacent to heavily travelled roads. Be careful, man.

The good lord (tm) is telling you now to invest in a new Arai Renegade helmet for day to day off-bike usage. Either that, or hes telling you it's time to replace your head and neck with one that is made out of more durable materials.
