Phantom of the Office

Yep. I'm purple. And puffy.

I can laugh about it now, but I look HIDEOUS. Spent most of yesterday hiding in my office facing away from the door so no one would notice that half of my face from about the cheek bone down is swelled up to about golf-ball size and a fantastic shade of purple. Then there's the black eye. It looks *lovely* too- lovely enough to make the friend who brought me an ice pack drop the ice and the Advil she was holding in shock.

I also ended up devoting a large part of yesterday to rehashing the gory details and assuring people that no, no one is beating me up.

*sigh*

Not that this hasn't been an amusing adventure, but note to self: sharpen the skates and don't slip like that again!
