    Yeah, it hurt like a bitch. Tried to walk it off for an hour but it started swelling up pretty bad so I left early and went to the emergency room to make sure it wasn't a fracture. It's just a contusion and they threw a couple of vicodins at me and told me to stay out of work for a couple of days and take it easy. Goddamn this shit hurts, though. Thankfully, it's not broken and also I downloaded two UFC fighting movies today so I can just sit around and watch those.

    Haha, man I forgot about that. Guess it's true.

    And no, I'm part-time so I don't get paid. But they are going to be getting the bill for the trip to the emergency room. The people at the hospital told me that my work will have to pay for it. X-ray's and everything. I picked up the tab on the 10 dollar script, though.

    BTW, that UFC shit is brutal! Ultimate Knockdowns 2.

    Yeah that's what I was doing until my foot swelled up a nice big ol' lump and I started walking like Kevin Spacey in the Usual Suspects. I get cardboard cuts and cuts from the plastic around accessories all the time and go home sore all over from lifting shit regularly. This definitly hurt. I forgot to mention, since it happened during work, the hospital is sending the bill to work for them to pay and I guess they have to pay it. The main reason I went to get it checked out is because I have to move and start school and all this shit in the next two weeks and I wanted to make sure that I wasn't walking around on a serious injury like a fracture or sprain. Thank god it's not broken, I shattered my left foot (today was my right foot) in the eigth grade and was in a cast, walking cast, brace, and physical therapy for 6 months. That staple shit looks pretty nasty Qba, what's that from?

    Also, I'd like to throw the idea of a women's UFC league into play. I think it'd be entertaining.

    ferm, i think 12oz should start a women's UFC league. We could all market it and make huge cash from it.

    Also, its weird, im working around crazy sharp knives and shit, yet ive never cut myself with an actual knife...but usually on stuff that ud never think of cutting urself on (ice, paper, cardboard etc)

    anyways, i hope ur foot gets better soon

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and say papercuts are pretty common.

    Sorry to hear holmes, hopefully you're back to normal functionability soon. Milk that vicodin prescription for all its worth and always remember, you'd rather have drugs than girls because while they both may make you feel like shit, drugs don't yell at you.
