The Bump

Have you seen Inception? I expected nothing but I thought it was perfectly watchable. It made little sense but I thought it was well done. I actually at one stage found myself wondering how this whole dream controlling thing could be done, but then I think it was the concussion.

I banged my head so hard going up some stairs on Saturday night at someone's birthday do, I didn't realise quite how bad until I felt the matted blood in my hair on Sunday morning. I hit it on a very sharp-edged brushed steel thing that had been attached to this bit of wall going up the stairs. God it hurt all day yesterday I thought I'd have to go to A&E. I'm glad to say it's better today, but I can feel it as I write.

Serves me right really. I did bound up the stars after having had far too much to drink. We said we'd probably only stay for a couple of hours. Naturally it was 3am by the time we got home. We felt ultra-grim all day yesterday, what with my injury as well. I couldn't tell if it was that or the hangover. I think it was both.

I wasn't not looking forward to the party, but then again I wasn't looking forward to it either. It was vampire-themed, and although Mrs F-C made a good effort I thought wearing all black was enough. I'm not big on fancy dress. I looked at vampire teeth at the joke shop and baulked at the £27 price tag. I blame True Blood and Eclipse. For some odd reason vampires are all the rage and have pushed up the price of fangs.

Anyhoo my real point I was going to make was about rubbish DJs. Not that he was awful, but what DJ worth their salt doesn't have Amii Stewart's seminal disco classic and guaranteed floor-filler Knock On Wood? When I asked for it he said, 'the Eddie Floyd version?'. At that point I knew I was on a hiding to nothing. But he did have Funkytown by Lipps Inc., so that's alright then.

But he played We Are Family. I couldn't believe my ears. The dancefloor emptied. Someone came and asked for less Eighties, which at a 40th is the last thing you want. Poker Face went down well, nonetheless.

You can still feel it? Are you sure you're all right F-C?

And have you heard Pseudo Echo's version of Funky Town? It's played on the 'keytar' you know.

If I can still feel it, is that a bad sign?

I do know that song, Cocktails, not a fan.

Well, I don't know. But if you still feel pain, rather the bump, maybe you should get it checked out?

Yes, Funky Town was not one of Pseudo Echos finer moments. And yes, they did have one.

I only remember the Pseudo Echo 'Funky Town'. I hate it so much it brings me out in boils, so I probably won't seek out Lipps Inc.

And I also think that if you're still getting pain from the wound site 48 hours later, you might want to get it looked at. You may have a flake of paint or something in the wound, which can mean a horrifying, rabies-like death (or in other cases, a slightly unpleasant skin infection.).
