"My, My, My Poked-Up Face! My, My Poked-Up Face!"

It's been over a week since my last post, but there's a reason. A very good reason.

I got out of bed early Tuesday morning and apparently, I stood up too quickly because I passed out somewhere in my hallway or my bathroom. Why am I not sure where I passed out? Well, there's the whole unconscious thing. And the fact that I hit my forehead somewhere, on something, and that robbed me of a few minutes / hours of detailed short term memory.

That said, the deep cut in my forehead bled extremely well, so much so that I didn't need a CSI black light wand to tell me where I laid AFTER I passed out. However, I have no idea how long I laid there bleeding and there's nothing near the large pool of blood that has a sharp enough edge to cut my forehead so that I needed 7 (or was it 9?) sutures.

But after a trip to the emergency room and a week of healing, I now have a semi-Harry Potter scar. And a new theme song: "My, my, my poked-up face. My, my poked-up face!"

Luckily, a new Sassy Gay Friend video just hit YouTube. I needed this laugh. A lot.

I knew my Spidey-sense was trying to tell me something last week---Whoops!I guess I'd make a horrible sassy gay friend. Glad you're ok Stephen. Now, go get some of that pregnancy stretch mark cocoa butter cream moisturizer, it's supposed to be good for scars too. And your future boyfriend (with his Harry Potter fetish) will probably love the cocoa butter smell :)

Damn,sweetie! I hope you are okay. I'm sure I'm not telling you anything the doctor didn't already, but you need to stop working so hard and get some rest. You just lay back and we'll send Chris Evans right over to rub your temples - or whatever else you want rubbed.

And here I thought you were starring in a FABulous new production and didn't have time for us little people. Who knew you were just unconscious bleeding away on the floor?

Hope all is well now! And take care of yourself, peanut!

HUGS...

Jesus Christ, Rader, it's been a whole week and this the best story a pro like you can come up with to explain a mysterious late night injury. Knowing you I'm sure the real story is far more wonderful and look forward to hearing it later.

Just kidding.

Maybe.

Or maybe that space between your bedroom, bathroom, and hallway is where I left my very, very, sharp [blank]

Okay, this is no time for Match Game jokes either.

Seriously, I hope you're okay. New rule: no blood puddles. Like ever.

Oh my...
Two Stephen R.s go to the ER!
& your face is your fortune!

Oh, dahling! Take care of that beautiful self of yours. So glad you are okay though. Sending lots of good vibes your way.

So now that you have a Harry Potter-esque inclination, does that mean you're going to do Equus?I'll wait with baited breath.

Take care!
