The Random Yak

Seeing Stars

Filed under: Just Yaks,Random Linkfests — Random Yak @ 12:29 pm on January 30, 2008

Somewhere in the world, someone might have taken a blow to the head over the weekend.

Somewhere in the United States, someone could have suffered a concussion.

Somewhere in California, someone might not have realized the blow caused serious damage until about a day later, when the headaches and dizziness led someone to realize that big, painful, swollen bump could be more than just a “random sore spot.”

Somewhere on my side of the mountain, a yak might have seen stars that didn’t live in Hollywood, or even in the heavens.

On the positive side, I now know what it means to knock someone “into the middle of next week.”  (Because that’s how long it took me to get back on my feet and start posting again.  Looking at the screen still makes me dizzy, though, so I’ll do my best but don’t expect miracles before Friday at the earliest.)

Since I can’t do much on my own, consider this an open trackback post.  Link, trackback and generally amuse yourselves.  Promoted, as always, at:

  1. Bummer! Hmmm… heard about the “infrared helmet” British researchers are using to combat Alzheimers? Applications for consussions, perhaps?

    BTW, I hope you had someone read this comment to you rather than suffer through it in duplicate…
