In society's continual assault against my person news . . .

In noggin news, I took a soccer ball off of my beautiful face last week during our disappointing 3-3 tie (they scored the tying goal with like 3 seconds left). I was running at this dude about 20 yards away from the goal. I was no more than 4 feet from him and he somehow managed to hit me in the face with his shot (?). It was a glancing blow that jostled my eye and contact around a bit. It didn't necessarily hurt, but I felt like Mr. Magoo for a minute there. Anyway, it looks like I’m wearing eye make-up on Lefty. So, I put some eyeliner on Kevin (my right eye – 100 million bonus points if you know this reference) to balance things out. Then I darkened my eyebrows to bring out my baby blues and added a little foundation to even things out and – viola! – I’m a SUPERSTAR!

Or maybe I made up the whole story to hide the fact that theMonica beat me up. And maybe this is a cry for help (waaah, waaah, nudge, nudge).

Still, it's so much more entertaining than the usual "I ran into the door" excuse you trot out every time this happens.

Kevin and Lefty are the names that Luke Wilson gives his eyebrows (per "Old School" on DVD w/commentary). Can I redeem my bonus points for actual money (preferrable euros)?

Argh. Anony beat me to it!
One time a guy friend got hit above the eye with a metal marble. He asked if he could tell the other guys he went for a grab and I popped him in the eye. He figured that was the ultimate compliment he could give me.
