My dream last night
I was showing my house to a friend of a friend. We walked into the bedroom and the guy said "Wow, this place looks like Krull!" I replied "That's what I was going for!"

Yesterday I had a nose bleed for the first time in, well, a long time. I can't remember when I might have had one last- but here is a story of my most memorable:

Taking a shower one night early in the fall semester I looked down to see the entire front of my body covered in blood. I reached up to my face and found the source just before I lost consciousness. When I woke up I was on the shower floor with one leg and one arm splayed out under the shower door, still covered in my own blood. I heard the door to the bathroom open and I squeaked out a pathetic "help" but regretted that immediately when my down-the-hall neighbor opened the shower door, horrified at the bloody, naked college freshman on the tile floor. She didn't speak, just walked away and returned with a washcloth and my roommate. Humiliated, I toted by bloody washcloth to the student clinic where the midnight med student told me that I should be much more concerned about the tangerine sized lump on the back of my skull where I had hit the wall during my blackout than the blood clot up my nose, certainly brought on by a combination of stress and too-hot showers. At that moment, I would have rather perished from a bruise on the brain than go back to that dorm to face my neighbor.

Later that year my ego was stroked when I saw her fall on her drunk ass in that very bathroom and chip a tooth. Interestingly enough, I instictively handed her my washcloth...
