Colourful

I just want to admit that I lied today.

You know how I ran up the stairs and rammed my shoulder into the overhanging balcony? Well, I knew that I had become a photographer then when I instinctively cradled the camera instead of catching my fall.

And when I said I was fine? The bruise that's developing seems to indicate otherwise.

And that, my friend, is why I asked you to be the official BarCampMontreal photographer! ;-)

As a fellow photographer, I have to say you made the right choice.

The difference is that the state pays for the prosthetic arm, but not your camera... ;)

Gentlemen, we can rebuild him.
That is worth considering, as it aches a great deal.

The pleasure was all mine. I'm always happy to meet a fellow photographer.

Oh Simon! I hope your arm feels better soon! And I also noticed that you wrote this at 5:20 AM... If the arm's keeping you awake, try tiger balm? If it's work, well... I have no useful suggestions!

It's a bit better now. But that weekend was crazy hectic.

And how does it feel to come out clean? ;-)

My shoulder still hurts, so not significantly better.

This thus demonstrate that the shoulder is not the "seat of the soul"!

poem
hi simon,
i've just become a member of this, and the reason i did it is because i found a poem of mine on the livejournal poetry site, i eat poetry. so, seeing as how you are one of the people responsible for 'funny business' i'm emailing you because i was wondering how my poem got there. i mean, i suppose someone put it there, but i was wondering when, and how?
no great drama, but perhaps you could explain the process, i'd appreciate that
thanks

Re: poem
Welcome to LiveJournal! I hope you find it interesting.

The greatpoets community lets anyone write an entry once they have joined as a member. The group has open membership, so anyone can join.

Your poem seems to have been added on 13 March 2006. I hope that you're not offended that someone like your poem enough to want others to read it. These days, it is even difficult for libraries to encourage people to discover poets and poems, so it gives me some small hope that people read poetry here.

If you have any questions or comments, please let me know.
