boots and fists to pound on the pavement.



There's my gimp leg. You can't really tell in this photo, but my poor toes and foot are really bruised. I don't want to know what my ankle looks like under there.

I chose a black cast because my brother-n-law is getting married this week and I thought I should be nice and go with an inconspicuous color (as much as casts can be inconspicuous anyway, which is not at all, especially with a dress on). But I think when I get it replaced soon I'll go for fluorescent yellow or pink.

I am grateful for tile flooring all downstairs, my red rolling office chair, and house-call pedicures.

  1. I saw Blake's announcement at my parents' house and thought, "Hey! Angela is going to be on crutches for the wedding!" I'm sure your cast will look lovely with your dress :)

  5. I had a black cast when I messed up my ankle my senior year and my foot was also bruised in a nasty way. Not fun.
    I will see what I can do about photoshopping either a peg leg or some other kind of leg for you for the wedding photos.

  6. angela! my poor, poor little crippled sister. how did you break your leg running?

    somehow i missed all the news until now. we are all sad for you and hope your leg is feeling better in no time. i am so glad it's not the heat of the summer. that might've made having the cast worse.

    i hope your bones heal nicely and that you make a full recovery. if not, we can be a crippled pair. you with your bum leg and me with my faux-gout toe.

    I'm sure you'd look good in any cast, but I really like the black. :)

  10. hot pink. really.

    when {hopefully never} are you going to get the chance to live your cast dreams?

    {okay so maybe it was in my dreams to have a cast. i was always way jealous of kids in elementary school, and just may have tried to fall of the swings wrong to break a bone. no such luck for the young kate.} :)

  13. I'll take you to lunch if you get a hot pink cast b/c I know how much you love pink... and a flourescen shade affixed to your body for several days would be rad.

  20. the black cast is chic! :) i hurt my foot last week and had to stay off it for 9 days. it was such a bummer but i agree, it's kind of nice to have forced rest sometimes. you can watch lots of bad TV and not feel guilty :)

  23. did you let the reception guests sign it? with one of those silver and gold sharpies it could have looked real classy. maybe the best guest book ever even.
