Poor Jimmy Fallon.
He fell yet again in Massachusetts, hurting his right hand. This is the same year he hurt his left hand so badly, he spent a week in ICU, and chipped a tooth trying to open a tube of lotion for said hand.
What a clutz…or maybe not?
You may recall I got bit by a stingray on my family’s beach vacation in Florida. There were 10 of us; I got the chomp.
Now it appears a spider bit my right arm sometime over the past two days, and I have a swollen lump of itchiness near my elbow.
We, Jimmy, are the chosen.
I will let you know if I figure out how to get off the list.

My boyfriend shared this pic of a billboard he spied during a recent road trip in Florida:
It’s simple, to the point and, I would argue, has a lot of bang for the buck since the text has a dual meaning.
Meat is the result of the death of an animal, and eating meat could lead to your poor health and eventual death.
Does either meaning speak to you?

My bucolic beach vacation received a jolt yesterday when I got up close and personal with a stingray.
I was walking in kneedeep water, so I didn’t see my attacker coming. But once I felt the stab, I did get a hand on him to pull him away.
It bled a bit, but hurt a lot. For three or four hours, it was pretty darn intense. Then it calmed down.
And so did I.
For future reference, should you be so unlucky, don’t pee on the wound. And don’t rush to the doctor (although painkillers will be tempting).
Just make sure no barb remains, soak it in hot water, apply antibiotic ointment and leave it uncovered to heal. Elevating it seems to help, too.
And be grateful for friends and family who quickly gather round to help.

Things have been quiet around The Egg the past couple of days. That’s because of the view.
We’re on vacation this week, so forgive me if my posts are a bit more sporadic.
We may lose track of time now and then…

A fun little encounter during my errands yesterday…
I was on the Upper East Side, waiting to cross the street, when a woman asked me where the nearest subway station was located.
I was headed there, so I led the way. We started chatting, and I learned that she:
- lives in Florida, where I am headed for vacation
- has family in Kentucky, where I grew up
- attended Morehead State University, a college that I never hear mentioned outside of the state of Kentucky
She was on her way to a movie audition. Hope you got the part, Kelly!

I’ve heard of throwing pizza dough in the air…
…but throwing pizza as a punch?
A Florida man threw a hot slice of pizza at his roommate, who called the cops.
And they arrested him.
Since this incident occurred in Florida, it’s really not all that surprising. What is surprising is that the guy didn’t eat the slice when he threw it at him.
When life gives you lemons, buddy. It is pizza, after all.

What makes a person look older?
Grey hair? Mom jeans? A few extra pounds?
According to the announcers calling the UK-Florida basketball game —
The announcer actually called them ‘cheaters’ when he spied them in the crowd on UK superfan and actress Ashley Judd. You could hear his disbelief, his teenage fantasies becoming as blurry as the words on her game day program.
She had aged before his very eyes.
One word: progressives.

My JetBlue flight to San Diego today didn’t have WiFi, but it did have DirectTV, so I was able to catch the conference basketball tourney games enroute.
Kentucky wasn’t scheduled until later in the day, so I watched the Virginia/Florida State game. And I was really impressed with Virginia coach Tony Bennett.
Apparently he was named the ACC Coach of the Year. Based on his sideline behavior alone, I am not surprised. Everything in his manner eminates positivity.
Don’t get me wrong — I am a huge fan of UK Coach Calipari. But I can’t remember ever seeing him high five the Cats when they head to the bench for a timeout after a particularly great play. Or even see him smile.
Bennett does it a lot. With his players. With the refs. It makes a difference. I would work harder for that coach.
So, let’s give Cal something to smile about, Cats. It’s March — the best time of the year!

I arrived home from Florida tonight in time to watch the Winter Olympics Figure Skating Team Competition.
The US was sitting near the bottom in 7th place…then the ice dancing team of Meryl Davis and Charlie White — the reigning Olympic silver medalists — knocked one out of the park and moved the Americans up to 3rd.
Meryl Davis looks like a china doll on the ice and sounds like Minnie Mouse. I get a bit of a complex just listening to her speak.
Is this what a woman is supposed to sound like?
