Fell down a stairwell while walking backwards showing @amandapalmer on Skype the dinner she wasn't at Thanksgiving in 2010. (Fall broken by landing on a box of red wine bottles, which shattered+splashed on the stairs, leading the family who found me to assume it was my blood.) https://t.co/HIOZywPwdm

Got so entranced in a game of Civilization IV, got a second degree burn on my thigh from the Macbook venting hot air for four hours.
Happened so slowly, I didn’t notice. Still have a scar. https://t.co/rZLBOYI6bL
