So, Roebuck used to say that I had some voodoo effect upon him, where I'd say "I hope you get a flat," and he'd get a flat.

Well, Roebuck got mad at me when I didn't go to the Chicago Lounge ride, and I think the tables have turned. At Saturday's race, somebody tried to ride their bicycle on me, and, while I kept it up on 2 wheels during my brief stint as human tarmac, I nonetheless got a pretty big, nice burn on my calf.

Today, I went out to race, and some greasy-legged clown decided that he wanted my line in one of the corners. I simultaneously decided that the road looked at once incredibly comfortable and tasty, and proceeded to dive at it accordingly, so as to rub my face on it as quickly and efficiently as possible.

I got pretty cut up, went to medical and cleaned up, then headed back to iliveonnitro's place to shower. Worst shower of my life. Ever. EVER. Apparently, iliveonnitro, his fiancée, and a friend of ours got a bit of a kick out of listening to me swearing and hopping around in the shower.

Fastforward to now, and I have used so many bandages on my legs that there is actually less exposed skin on my left leg than there is exposed skin. I'm effectively zombified/mummfied. And my hands are nice and cut up, resulting in me oozing on everything I touch.

So! Lessons to take away from this:
1) Don't crash
2) iliveonnitro's fiancée is a way, way better cook than I am
3) NEVER piss off Roebuck

Those could probably be useful. I've got gauze tape on 3 layers deep and I'm still bleeding through it. Again.

I hate that shower.

You're a lot more sociable, than I woulda been, though.

I'm pretty surly, when I crash.

Oh hai, my knee just finished healin' from the road rash -- first time just leaving Tegaderm on there for 4 days and trusting it. That stuff works!

Anything else busted? How's the bike?

Oh, I took the surliness out on the ex-girlfriend :p

There's not really a whole lot else to do but laugh about it. I'm still alive, though slightly resemblant to a mummy, and although my left hand got it pretty good, my right hand survived almost 100% cut-free (2 slits on the wrist, but neither deep enough to draw blood = awesome!)

the finger's oozing. the bandages on my leg that i'm soaking through, appears to be blood. but i doubt a shaving nick thing would do any good, i lost an 8" x 4" patch, and then 4sq inch patch that's arterial. One's too big, one's too deep. (and then a bunch of others that might work, but... f*ck it, vaseline and bandaids)

Better question: HTF did you find this now that it's a week-old thread? Someone's been searching themselves... narcissist!
