I thought that I had already ticked the "stupid thing of the week" box when on Sunday I walked downstairs with damp feet, no slippers, not paying attention, and feel. During the next second or so, time slowed down to give me ample leisure to reflect on my stupidity. Fortunately it also gave me time to grab the bannister and lift my head, so while I have a sore arm and shoulder and am bruised across two bits of back, neither of them is my tailbone, victim of the stair incident you'd think would have taught me better, and I didn't then bounce the rest of the way to the bottom. My dignity is harmed, but not my forthcoming skiing trip. Though I might pick up some pre-emptive diclofenac from the GP because I'm definitely going to fall down again while I'm there. Annoyingly, the visible bruises are not very impressive.

Anyway, that is the only the second stupidest thing I have done this week, and it's only Tuesday. Far, far worse is that I saw a new chapter of a fic was up and I clicked on it, and now I want to read it and know what happens, but I still have a chapter and a half that was already posted to go that I have skimmed, but not read properly (it is in German. Reading properly takes me a long time). And of course I clicked to an early bit and argh, now I need to know what happens next BUT I WILL BE STRONG!

Stop being productive, author! You were supposed to wait a week until I was on holiday and had more time.
