I Am A Knobhead

Published by at 9:23 am under Blog,Night Out

DarrenI am a knobhead. Yep, I admit it. I am stupid on a level so high they call it the stupidly high level for stupid people.


While out on Saturday, rather than wait for people to move or ask them politely to ‘excuse me’, I thought the better course of action would be to walk across the table. I was ever so slightly wrong.


Down I came to a crashing halt, sending DailyDaydreamer halfway across the floor and sending my ankle in a direction it most definitely didn’t wish to go.


In all sorts of pain and with the help of Lottie, I hobbled outside. I am not sure why I went outside – as far as I’m aware fresh Dublin air isn’t known for spontaneously healing sprained ankles.


And so, I continued with my evening, limping around like a fool, occasionally pausing to check my swollen ankle and my bruised ego. I survived the night, but could not walk at all on Sunday.


Today, I can walk. I am still in a lot of pain and my foot is still twice the size it should be, but it is getting better.


So, there you have it. I am a knobhead. And I’m back. 🙂

    eh, woops!

    Good to have you back, and an interesting new design too, complete with google ads 🙂

    @Phil I’m just playing with the theme at the mo. Didn’t realise it had Google ads. Running off to delete that now. Cheers.

    @Maxi Apart from my hilarious mis-hap, it was a great night.

    @LeNord Yeah, maybe…

    Welcome back 🙂

    Easy to see I was not there to keep you under control! 🙄

    I hope you got that ankle checked. A few minutes now is better than a life time of hobbling.

    Welcome back 😉 – but scowly face at new design. *scowl*

    @Alan Cheers mate!

    @GM It’s feeling a lot better. I have been good – I’m taking it easy.

    @Lottie Agreed. Changed back to the old one for the moment.

    I haven’t used the term ‘spanner’ in a while so I think I’ll use it here. You spanner.

    So was this more painful that the time you got a cigarette in your eye…?

    I’m sad I missed this one now 🙁

    Welcome back Darren! 🙂

    So I’m having my title challenged….

    All you need to do now is learn to heckle 😉

    I’m just gonna run through a very rapid batch of small thoughts I had there.

    1. Reads “I am a nobhead” on the title
    2. See photo with your face
    5/2. godif*ckinghopehehasn’tphotoshoppedsomethingontohishead.
    3. Phew

    although you should put a doorknob onto it or something like that.

    hey – only seeing you are back now – excelent!

  15. elfinamsterdamon 29 Apr 2009 at 12:10 pm


    Sometimes through is not the only way!

    Get the ankle checked, I did something similar it was a hairline fracture and as I didn’t get it checked the ankle is waaaaay weaker now.

    Sort it young sir!

    knobhead 🙂

    Yaayy you’re back 🙂

    I know this sounds crazy but try putting some cabbage in the fridge until it’s really cold. Then wrap a few leaves around your ankle and secure with a towel/crepe bandage etc. Leave on for 20 mins or until the cabbage is no longer cold. Repeat 2-3 times a day. It’ll take the swelling and pain away

    silly cat face.

    Thanks everyone for the nice welcome back. Not sure what form this place will take now. Probably won’t be blogging regularly – just when I feel the need.

    Nice to know I still have a few readers though.
