Sorry about the car accident, I hope you were ok. My imagination starts going and I get worried. Would love to hear more about: bee sting, being fired, broken toe, law suit, chickenpox, lost loved one (but probably too sad to write about), and who you met that was famous.

Look at all the blog fodder these things can bring!
