Ouch ouch ouch!  
I managed to twist my ankle last night in the silliest of ways. I had been sitting with my left foot tucked up underneath me until it went numb, and when I got up to walk my toe caught on the carpet and my foot twisted under. I put my weight down before I'd realised what had happened, and as a result I have a rather large egg on my ankle. Oddly enough it's not that sore to walk, only if I sit for a while.

Went to see the new Avengers movie last night, and I was a bit disappointed. Most of the fight scenes went on long enough to become boring, and I don't like it when the Avengers are fighting among themselves. I don't mind a bit of conflict but when it gets to one-on-one physical confrontation it's disturbing. A lot of shippers are going to be disappointed, too, with almost-romance between Banner and Romanov, and finding out that Clint is married with kids (and not to Coulson, which seems to be the most popular ship). There was some wit which I enjoyed, and one scene I loved was very Arthur and Sword in the Stone-ish, as the Avengers all take turns trying to lift Thor's hammer. I'd still give it three out of five just for Stark and Banner being science bros but I think it could have been so much better than it was.

That is counter-intuitive :-(

Sorry you were disappointed with the movies :-(
Though, myself, I never understood the fascination with "marvel comics":-/

I've never been fascinated with Marvel Comics as such, just got sucked in via the Iron Man movies. I like broken things, and Tony Stark is about as broken as it's possible to be.

Poor thing! I hope you're icing that ankle?

Thanks for the review on the movie, so I probably won't go see it. Movie admission is out of control lately so I'd rather go see a film I know won't be disappointing.

I get a senior citizen discount now, hahaha, but the price still isn't that great.

I did ice ankle, thanks, and strapped it, and it was fine to walk on almost immediately. Still a bit swollen but no longer painful.

Don't miss the movie on account of my review, I did enjoy it overall, just I think my expectations were a bit high :-(

Ow! I don't know about silly, but definitely painful! I actually had to look up what to do with a twisted ankle (it's a long time since that first aid course) and I must say, everything is saying rest, not exercise! And ice. Lots of ice.

Sorry to hear about the Avengers not really hitting the spot for you - my sister was off to see it last night too, so I shall ask her, too.

Ice happened, and strapping happened, but still did my 10,000 steps the next day and it was fine. Weird, I know!

I'd be interested in knowing what your sister thought about the movie.

Ouch, sorry about the ankle. I always seem to damage myself in that same accidental sort of way so you have my sympathies.

I have no plans to go and see it. In general, I'm just not that much into superhero films.

Thank you! I'm not usually accident-prone and I think I'm glad of that.

I'm not a fan of superhero movies usually, but I have a sneaking fondness for Iron Man. I do like broken things *g*.

i know you say it's not painful but it must have hurt when you did it ...sorry about that .

I'm not really in to films like The Avengers ...i love my horror movies with more blood and guts the better but atleast you know now what it's like.

take care of yourself x

Thank you, yes it did hurt at the time, I think I'm very lucky that I didn't do worse.

Ooh I'm not a fan of blood and guts movies at all - can't quite say when I last saw one. For that matter I'm not usually a fan of superheroes, either; I do love Iron Man though.
