Things That Amaze Me

It amazes me that I’ve never broken my ankle, or even seriously sprained it, given how often this happens:

Yes, I do go around saying, “Hey, look at me! I know how to walk!” What, you mean you don’t? Weirdo.

Of course, I recognize that by mentioning this I’m asking for trouble, but it seems like it’s bound to happen eventually anyway.
Not much of note going on today. It is, as always, laundry day.
Yesterday I found a bunch of episodes of The Day The Universe Changed and the various iterations of Connections online, so I’ll probably be nourishing my inner nerd by watching them.
For the uninitiated, both shows were BBC productions written and hosted by a guy named James Burke, and their purpose was to examine the ways in technological advances have fundamentally changed the way we live and how we change the world, with Connections focusing in particular on the connections between two seemingly unconnected inventions. Burke has an engaging, witty style that helps to make what could otherwise be a dry recitation of history interesting and entertaining.
At least, you know, if you’re a nerd.
In any case, I should probably get back to doing the laundry.

Are you sure you are the only one with the walking problem?
Have you ever seen me walk? I can twist my ankle standing still it is sad.
