Today was a horribly accident-prone day… with me getting a nasty gash and buruise on my right forearm, as well as, an extremely painful muscle bruise on my right sole that left my foot swollen It’s been a long time since I got hurt, but still!
During the last show tonight, I lost my balance and footing, resulting in me tottering off the top of our tall acrylic substitution trunk, amidst the startled screams of the ladies in the crowd. Bad things happen, but at the end of it all, it’s really all about recovery.
So, falling off the top of the tall prop, I somehow managed to land gracefully still on both feet, but the impact from the hard floor left the balls of my feet hurting like heck. I’d over-compensated the weight distribution on my right side especially, and trust me, gravity is not your best friend from a great height.
The show must go on, so I quickly found my wits and climbed up the steps again, to execute the illusion and finish up the entire show. Every step I walked was really excruciating and I was seriously concerned that I’d killed a few tiny blood vessels with the impact. At least it wasn’t a sprain, I guess…
But anyways, I found wonderful comfort in some sweeeeeeeeeeeeet things that arrived in the mail, when I reached home. Online shopping really rocks. I’m so happy these babies finally arrived! Woohoo… check it out!
As you know, I really love fire spinning so I had to get the latest Circles of Light DVD, which features some of the best fire artists in the world. There’s also a brand new staff manipulation DVD I ordered, which teaches some seriously kick@ss moves with a mean fire stick!
And then, there’s this very special gadget from Bandai… all the way from the land of the rising sun… JAPAN!!! It looks like a mere ordinary keychain but oh no, no, no, no, no… do not be decieved by its unassuming appearance because it is SO much more. Batteries included.
Puchi Puchi has many buttons on it because it’s supposed to emulate bubble wrap. Yes. Bubble wrap. People with OCD like me can press the buttons and hear them ‘pop’ just like bubble wrap – and every 100th pop comes a random sound like a dog barking, a cat meow, etc. YOU JUST DONT WANNA STOP!!!!
It’s just so shiok… it’s reeeeeeeeeeeeally addicitve, I swear!!!!!! *satisfied sigh* I will take it everywhere I go now. To work. To the library. To lunch. To the toliet. Ok I gotta go, my Puchi Puchi beckons!
