Some days just don't go well

No writing to be reported today, sadly.  I woke up this morning and felt horrible, and so stayed in bed for the most part untill about 3:30, when I finally started to feel like I had some energy and felt like moving.  Unfortunately, about an hour later one of my roommate's called from her work as she needed a ride to the ER.  We live right behind where she works, so she tends to walk instead of drive or get a ride.  Today she slipped in the back parking lot of her work and twisted her knee.  She didn't fall, just twisted, but sometimes that's just as bad.  My boyfriend/other roommate was busy working from home (oh the grrness!), and our fourth was at class, so it fell to me to brave the blizzard to the ER and back.

Let me tell you, it is NASTY out there.  I am not looking forward to tomorrow morning when I have to drive in to open the library.  It'll likely take me fourty-five minutes instead of the usual fifteen.  At least, that's what I'm going to plan on.

As for my roommate, we are back home, and she is laid out on the couch with a book, her knee on ice and in a brace.  She's got to go back in and see her specialist, as the doctor at the ER wasn't able to say anything definitive and the X-rays of course showed nothing.  Happily, the boy is now cooking us dinner.  :)

As a side note: one of the other patients in the ER was another young woman who had slipped and fell.  However, she was being an idiot and wearing open backed heels that were a good three or four inches tall plus platforms.  Hello?  It's snowing out!  This is likely going to be the worst storm of the winter, and it's winter in MI in the first place, and you're wearing heels outside?  Um...I don't think we needed to actually see your hair to tell you're blond. She then complained that her socks were wet.  Again, use the brain you were given.  I know you have one, because it's what tells you to breath and lets you talk.
