Just to be clear, Britain and Brian are different things.

Does anyone actually care about Britain?

@lewellyn This I know. I’m not after fun here, just a little lass pain for the next few weeks.

@AndrewChangOz No, you’re on the wrong track there.

via TweetDeck in reply to AndrewChangOz

I’ve basically cancelled the next couple of days so I can spend them scoffing codeine and anti-inflammatories. Like a grown-up.

@IntelligenAR I always enjoyed talking with him. Or rather, listening to him talking at me.

Can you imagine me in a conversation with Barry Jones? Because it actually happened and… someone should’ve thrown cold water on us.

Oh, and here’s a little Barry Jones on “BP Pick A Box” (1963) youtube.com/watch?v=T2024C…

via TweetDeck

Hmmm. Barry is already champion at the start of episode 3. WHERE IS THE PREVIOUS EPISODE.

@munin Yep, Katoomba is a lovely town of about 25,000 people from memory. It’s the main tourist town for the Blue Mountains.

OK. No rib fracturing, no kidney damage. It’s MOAR CODEINE and anti-inflammatories, and it’ll sort itself out in (gulp) two to four weeks.

@max_au Thanks. I doubt there’s any kidney damage. It’s really just a matter of checking those ribs. Stand by.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to max_au

@MariellaAttard1 Yes, I think Iris would be equally concerned by this happenstance.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to MariellaAttard1

I have been X-rayed, and am patiently awaiting the interpretation thereof, and the results of the urine analysis.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

Sometimes the fault is not in the stars, but in ourselves. twitter.com/mpesce/status/…

via Tweetbot for iΟS

Would you like a photo of my urine sample?

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

In further news, I’ve submitted a urine sample (to check for kidney damage) and will soon have the X-rays. For some value of “soon”.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

Hmmm. While I appreciate the fact that I’m now in a consulting rooms, there aren’t any magazines to tweet.

The taxi driver was about to knock off, so instead of going to the station he drove me all the way to the hospital in Katoomba.

@DaliiDally Thanks. I’ve managed codeine responsibly for chronic neck and back pain for years, so I should be right.

@johnb78 Thanks. I’ll be tweeting updates from the hospital. I’m fairly sure it’s “just” deep tissue damage.

via TweetDeck in reply to johnb78

Right. Time for a shower and shave, and then the hospital for X-rays. I’m hoping for no to a cracked rib but yes to stronger opiates.
