A painting of me

I Walked in to the Side of a Moving Car

   12 February 2010, lunch time

My original plan upon returning from India was to spend the next few weeks posting pictures and stories from the trip. I think i’ll still do this, but I would be remiss if I didn’t take a moment to mention that I walked into a car when crossing the street on Monday and broke my leg fairly badly. If you follow my inane postings on Twitter you might already be aware of this. If not, well, now you know. In India it was actually fairly stressful crossing the street. There are cars and bikes all over the place, and none of them look like they give a fuck that you are trying to cross the road. By the end of the trip Shima and I had got quite good at crossing the busy streets of Bangalore and Chennai. Walking into a car in Toronto is pretty stupid. I can blame my giant winter hood and jet lag to some extent, I suppose. I have a cast on my leg for the next 6 weeks, and am on crutches for the next 3 months. I’m lucky my wife is so lovely.




  1. bummer Ram – at least the irony isn’t lost on you.

    Hookup a longpen so people can sign your cast over the internets.

    Get well soon!

  2. :(

  3. Brutal ram, I hope you get can get around easy. And that it’s not too itchy under that cast.

  4. Hope you recover real soon. Shima is a great person Ram. You are lucky to have her. And we are lucky to have her in our Karate Club.

  5. Oh, no! Sorry to hear it. Hope your recovery is a quick one.

  6. That sucks. Get well soon.

  7. Really sorry to hear that, Ram. Must have hurt pretty bad.

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
