Good Way to Brain Myself

So yesterday was interesting. It was supposed to be painting class yesterday but I didn't do much painting.

I have a perching stool to use in life drawing class, handy thing to have when I need to sit down for a few minutes and nice to have to sit and paint on. Now this is what I think happened, not 100% sure though.

I lent over to grab my pallet and I must have leant over too far because the stool went over and me with it. Landed pretty hard and to add more the back of the stool whacked me in the head :( And I could have lived with that because things like that happen to me all the time, but of course my body decided "hey lets burst into tears like a 5 year old" :/ But I was laughing and crying at the same time.

I did more damage to my knee then my head at the time because on the way to the bus in the morning I almost did a face plant but luckily Mr.F had a hold of my hand or I would have went through the barber shop window.

So really I should have stayed in bed yesterday. Possibly have a concussion, but not much point going to the docs as they would just tell me to do what I am doing anyway. Take it easy. Can't do much anyway since I'm limping :p So didn't go to college today and only found out reading the little diary tonight that I should have phoned. oops :/ I thought we only had to fill out a bit of paperwork, well its not like I am skipping just to skip, and most of the class did see me fall.

On a more positive note, ok well maybe not since I have no idea what we are going to do with all the onions that grew. Anyone want an onion? lol You plant things thinking that hey maybe only half will grow, not all of them :p If it was garlic I would think great, we could ward off shiny vampires, but it might only work with onions if we threatened them with onion breath or cut the onions right next to them to make them cry. And then when they are blinded by the tears, stab them :p

I hear that wrapping your knee and head in onions will cure a bruise and a concussion.
Poor baby!!
There you were, staring at the naked man in art class, and you fell over. Don't tell anybody!

I hope you have a speedy recovery! Once, when I was student teaching I had a student who somehow managed to have a large steel easel (one of those heavy tubular steel easels) fall on her head during class. I think I was more shook up than she was! She did require a trip to the infirmary. Then years later I had one who almost passed out when he cut his finger pretty good with an x-acto knife. I slid a chair under him just in time before he crashed to the cement floor. School can be a dangerous place!

You poor little angel! :(
Be gentle with yourself. Hh, hey I miss you on been Tweetin' lately?

Michelle Eaton said...

Sorry to hear about your fall. I hope you feel better soon.

Jeanette said...

Yep. A full body padding suit coming up...

You're not supposed to swoon at the model in life class J! :)

Go have some chocolate and rest up. Chocolate cures all.

Jennifer Rose said...

lol Leslie! :D I think it would have been more funny if I was staring at the nekkid man :p but I was going to paint a glass bottle, not swoon worthy :p

thanks Ann :D good thing you managed to get a chair under the guy o.0 could have been as serious as the girls injuries were. they need to put bubble wrap on everything :p but then students would just spend the whole class popping it lol

Melody I have been neglecting twitter :( so busy with school :( I'm having withdrawls lol

thanks Michelle :)

lol Jeanette :D trust me, not really swoon material ;) good model, just not my type. I'm going to have to go get some chocolate, it is a cure all :)

Hi Jennifer - sorry you had such a bad day! Take it easy over the weekend :)

Jennifer Rose said...

thanks Alison :) trying to take to take it easy but need to straighten up the flat a bit :)

Shashi Nayagam said...

Oh goodness me! Hope you are feeling better today.

Michelle (artscapes) said...

I hate it when I have one of those days... Like now... Can't use a simple pair of scissors without making it look like Freddie Kruger took a visit... :-)

Emily said...

You poor dear! I hope you will be healing up soon! How lovely that you have so many onions! Those were in great supply in my mother's garden too! There were few things that survived the rainy spring and summer that they had but the onions seemed to not mind a bit!

Chrissy said...

I sympathise, I fell over last week when I was away and made a right mess. Hadn't even touched a drop of alcohol either!
Mind Cal managed to end up in hospital while I was away too and has horrible bruises all over his foot. I do think I should introduce you some time ;)
I hope you are feeling a little less sore now, hugs XX

Jennifer Rose said...

thanks Shashi, feeling better today :)

Michelle- be careful with those scissors! ;)

emily- thank you :) yeah almost everything died due to all the rain :/

Chrissy- if me and Cal met, we would probably end up both in the hospital in body casts lol two clumsy people in a room can not end well ;)

Linda Fleming said...

Ouch! Hope your head and knee are feeling better. I'm always so embarrassed when I fall in public, I try to jump up fast and act like nothing is wrong-LOL!

Jennifer Rose said...

thanks Linda :) the head is goo, but my knee is still bugging me.
lol I try to do the same thing too, jump right back up again :) doesn't always work as well as it should lol
