And the hits just keep on coming...

To make a stupid story short, I whacked my head on my son's night table in the wee hours of Friday morning. Hard. Really hard. Like, maybe I should go to the ER--just in case--hard. But I didn't. I went to sleep on the floor next to H-Bomb's bed, woke up, dragged myself back to my own bed, then woke up feeling like I'd been doing shots of Stoli. The back of my head was incredibly sore and tender, but I also felt all headache-y and foggy. Maybe I should've gone to the doctor. Instead I lay on the couch with an icepack on my head and looked at random blogs, until I realized that staring at the computer screen might not be helping. I blame my mildly concussed state (rather than a lack of will power) on my impulse purchases from Samhain. [Sigh, at least I have a better idea of what's in the TBR now.] BTW, if anyone's interested in any of their most recent releases, they were 10% off at My Bookstore and More.

Felt a bit better on Saturday, but still desperate for sleep. I'm really behind on my blog hopping, but I ran across some interesting things this evening. There's a new group author blog, The Bradford Bunch, which looks to be interesting. I don't follow author blogs religiously, but I drop in from time to time, because they do have interesting topics and I like to see stuff from the author POV from time to time. The situation with Triskelion Publishing really stinks. I feel bad for the authors, who have not only gotten screwed financially, but the books they slaved over, some of which haven't even been published yet, will be in limbo for the forseeable future, from what I understand. This, from KarenS' blog, had me in tears, nearly, especially the bit where the woman wonders whether Karen is "that hag from Dear Author." (I love Jane!) To think I felt sorry for Carol Lynne! Be careful what you put out there, folks.

I think I had something else to say, but I don't remember. And I still need to write my Demon Moon review. But I need to sleep more, methinks.

Holy Cow! I hope you are feeling better - did you get a goose egg? Dang it girl, hasn't anyone ever told you not to go to sleep after banging your head!?

Since it was Friday night and it looks like you updated Sunday I know you aren't in a coma so I'll try not to worry. (or is that an old wives tale they told us kids?)

Ouch! That sounds like it hurt.
Aside from taking an Xray, and then telling you to take it easy, their isn't much a Dr could have done for you (except make money on your visit, which doesn't help you, lol)

As for Carol Lynne, I still feel bad for her. So, she made a mistake when posting on an open group. It's not like she is the first, or will even be the last one to do it.

Yikes! I'd get it checked out if I were you. Don't they say that the last thing you should do if you hit your head real hard is to fall asleep?!

Gwen said...

You can't remember what you wanted to say BECAUSE YOU BASHED YOUR HEAD IN! You goose - you probably have a fractured skull! GO TO THE DOCTOR!

And I laughed my ass off too at Karen's post. That Carol Lynne - crazy girl - she should have known better.

Thanks for all the well wishes, folks, I'm feeling all well by now, just a little sheepish. I know you're not supposed to go to sleep after a skull crack, but HBomb was like, "Mommy I need you to keep me company until I go back to sllee-eep." So I lay down, and next thing I know, an hour's past. Then I was paranoid all day Friday about what happens while you sleep. Does your brain swell? Do your skull bones shift? Will I DIE? But still here.

This site is Version Hanrahan, after her favorite color scheme.

The thing with Carol Lynne is all so "mean girl". She came off as a whiny, complaining bitch. I can understand bitching about Karen or Jane, but if you're going to talk smack about editors/EC etc., you've gotta lock it up!
