Steve Jobs died today
February 17th, 2012. The crash

So guess what happened: I was nearly killed!

Hello! I'm waving wildly because I'm about to embark on the most activity this blog has seen in *donkeys*. And I'm soooo pleased to announce it was because I was nearly killed. On Feb 17th, coming home from work. 

THere's a hell of alot in this to write about, obviously. The most important thing to say to you is that I wasn't, of course. And that in the long term, my injuries are so much more limited than they could be that, well it's easy for me to frame statements as if I'm downplaying them, whereas in fact of course, it's all pretty astonishingly nasty and very hurty. So, what I'm going to do is try to break it down in to lots of hopefully not too long entries. With diagrams! But no gore I'm afraid. If *I* am having problems looking at the internal workings of my left leg, I think that level of literal intrusion can stay private. When it's better, perhaps.

So, sit back, relax, and enjoy the somewhat Not Good story of the night I nearly died, and what is happening next....
