Fate seems intent to balance out my happiness with equal amounts of pain and inconvenience lately. It’s no secret that it’s winter up here, and thus rather cold. I was, however, under the impression that the snow was melting and that the streets were thus clear of ice. I was wrong, as a 90 degree bend in the road was eager to point out on my way home yesterday. After a rather nasty fall at full velocity, I have now learned that when there is snow and darkness, one is well advised to move at a slow speed. Luckily, ice is good at preventing nasty injuries, as you mostly just slide a bit after falling. Still, my bike weighs a lot when it lands on you.
But this rather horrible but at least short-lived pain was quickly quenched as I arrived home (to a cup of hot chocolate… mmmm) to find that Fable and Age of Empires 3 had arrived! I quickly installed Fable and stayed up until 2 am playing it. Hilariously fun game, I shall bore you with all my thoughts about it when I’ve completed it.
Today, this pattern was repeated on a slightly lower scale as my mother mailed me to tell me that she’s gotten me on the guest list for a concert with Disturbed on February 12 (a good thing), which was then followed by a bunch of minor injuries throughout the day – mostly stuff bumping against the marks I got from my crash yesterday – ending with a flat tire on my bike (a bad thing).
All in all, I’m extremely happy and only slightly injured, so all is well. And I notice my computer is done installing Age of Empires 3. I’ll see you in 2007!
