Contrary to Popular Belief...

I have not fallen off the planet. I haven't been in a horrible accident and lost all my limbs. I haven't been abducted by aliens. I haven't been hacked to pieces by Slasher Norm. I did, however, fall down the stairs taking out the recycling and twist my foot. Yes, that purple and yellow swollen thingie is my foot. Or what's left of it. And no, my toes aren't dirty, they are bruised. There is a difference.
However, that isn't why I haven't been blogging or tweeting or picture taking. The reason for that is much more believable. See, I've been on this undiscovered, uninhabited island. You have probably never heard of it. It's called Analog Isle. I went out on this 3 hour boat trip with an old professor of mine known as Doc, a silly little country girl named Ali, a glamorous star named Gretchen, a goofy old couple named Otie and BlueViolet. My sea-worthy captain was none other than CBT, and his helper was Coffeypot. Well the captain and his mate must have been telling silly jokes or something because we got way off course. Next thing I knew we were being tossed all around in a hurricane. We finally came ashore on this island. It took us 26 days to get off the island. Really. That's why my last post was April 1st. I couldn't take any pictures of the beautiful sights because my camera battery died. And of course I couldn't tweet.

Now that I'm finally home I hope to get reacquainted with all of you. Thanks for sticking around. One of the best parts? I actually gained a follower! You all totally rock. I also got a couple more tweeps following me too, so I'll try to say something witty and intelligent.

Cheers!

While I was reading your post, I was wondering if itwould supply characters for a novel. Maybe the plot as well.

Coffeypot said...

That will be the second hurricane I've been through on the high seas and I'm still flicking salt out of my hair.

Sorry about your foot though, although blue and green does look good on you.

I was just the other day wondering about you!

Doc said...

Welcome back... I sure have missed my Bams!!

AmyLK said...

Welcome back! stay off that foot until it heals properly.

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

Ouch, no fun! But welcome back!

P.S. Shutter Island didn't give me any bad dreams. Definitely not the same kind of suspense as Stephen King.

Freaky! I was driving home yesterday, cursing blogger reader for leaving out important bloggers (like you and Running Wild). Then I went on this morning and a post! Blogger reader wasn't ignoring you, I was. Accidentally.

I am glad you are okay. Just remember, pain pills + wine = funny blogs. Or death.

#1. The next time you fall down the stairs taking out the recycling, email me instantly. I have great oils for bruises and such.

#2. Curse you woman. Now I have the melody from Gilligan's Island stuck in my head and I'm doomed to be humming it for hours. Three hour tour...three hour tour...

Loredana said...

I hate when that happens! Uggh! Welcome back! And how's the foot healing?

Jill C. said...

My foot is in a black cast/boot up to my knee, so I can sysmpathize! Feel better soon!

Keely said...

Ow, dude. That ankle looks painful. Welcome back!

Marinik said...

快樂是你與生俱來的權力,它不應該取決於你完成什麼。 ..................................................
