I shouldn’t out people like this, but we all gotta fall sometimes.

February 22, 2012 in Vlog. Or really just the real me.


Here.Β  Read it for yourself.

Sweet, sweet Kristy.

I’m sorry I laughed.

(Not really.)

OK, I’m sorry that I’m not sorry that I laughed.

(Yes really.)

I feel TWICE IN ONE DAY last week. The first time, I tripped OVER MY SON (go figure) in Ohio racing to see the snowball fall from the 3rd floor to the ground. He won. The second time, I tripped over the suitcase that had fallen on its face on the living room floor in our ITTY BITTY apartment because I was carrying the fat cat and didn’t see the suitcase through his fat…belly. I still have three cuts and several bruises, all on the left leg. Go figure…tripped with the right, both times. And, I’m out πŸ™‚

Katherine Brown February 22, 2012 at 7:51 pm

And I can’t spell – it’s FELL not FEEL…idiot

Carrie February 22, 2012 at 7:53 pm


At least you weren’t in a damn convenient store parking lot full of cars.

RIGHT HERE is your idiot.

Peggy Sterling Scarborough February 22, 2012 at 7:58 pm

I remember that fall at SFA; my slacks were torn at the knee, blood gushing, you running and hiding behind a tree, because there were college boys around.
I still have the scar.
This is what I get for 14 hours of labor and delivery from my first born…laughter.
That’s OK! You’re worth it…sometimes…lol!

Carrie February 22, 2012 at 8:00 pm

I still remember that like it was yesterday.

Forget the torn slacks and bloody knee…I wanted to die.


A Boy's Mom February 22, 2012 at 7:59 pm


I’ve totally fallen at school. On the tile. Walking all alone in the hallway. Well, I thought I was alone. And then I look up and see these two little wide eyes looking at me.

“I’m ok. go ahead. go to class.”

Then I cried. But nobody saw that. I hope.

Or let’s see. last week when I was wearing these super cute new shooties. The heel was slick, and I half fall. That was great too.

Carrie February 22, 2012 at 8:02 pm

Ohhh…those little half falls are damn near better than the full-fledged throw down!

You try to play it cool…but, uh, no. Ain’t happening.

I stumble all the friggin time. I haven’t cried yet though. I curse a whole hell of a lot…but no tears.


Kristy February 22, 2012 at 8:57 pm

Public displays of UNcoordination is simply the BEST! πŸ˜‰ haha.
Thanks for the shout out honey pie!

Girrrrl, I giggled and laughed so hard when I read about you busting it, I swear I pee’d a little.

OK maybe more than a little. But still.

That’s some good laughing.

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell February 22, 2012 at 10:53 pm

There really is something funny about stuff like that. I don’t know why! Those were always my favorite videos on America’s Funniest Home Videos.

There was this huge rush so half the time no one was looking but i got off and ppl were staring at me and i just pretended that nothing happened haha :p but i crack up whenever i think about it!

YAY!! So glad to hear that!

It was all your smartness though…all yours!!


Connie Weiss February 23, 2012 at 11:21 am

I love your accent! As I’m writing this….I’m hearing your voice in my head.

When I was in high school……a very long time ago. Fringe was all the rage! I had a jean jacket with white fringe. It was actually my mother’s jackets and I never let her wear it because OMG, my mother can NOT wear fringe!

So…I also had these mid calf white boots with fringe that matched the jacket to perfection. I wore them constantly.

And every single time it snowed (I live in Colorado so it was all the time) I would slip and fall. My boyfriend was mortified. He hated those boots.

*auto correct just tried to change mortified to modified. I have never been modified in my entire life.

Carrie February 23, 2012 at 11:35 am

(I could probably use some modifying. But that’s another post.)

Fringe boots and jacket?? Who cares if you slipped…you were looking hot!

And yes, fringe might not be the “in” thing right now, but I live in Austin and well, the weirder the better here.

Totally cool…but yes, I still would have laughed at you.

Jennifer February 23, 2012 at 2:36 pm

Connie, Carrie and I have the same accent so now you can picture my voice too! LOL

True, true, true!! Except Jennifer has the cutest little girly giggle and I have a deep old man smoker laugh.

And I don’t smoke. Go figure.

Connie Weiss February 23, 2012 at 2:57 pm

I love your accent too!

Makes me want to move to TX.

I’m bad about that too. I even had two partners in my crimes for awhile here in NJ (they both moved on to other bases) and we would get so tickled at the “big falls” that we actually called them “scenes”. Of course the fall that started it all was always referred to as THE SCENE- her husband- who was always trying to be so smooth and cool went for a bike ride one day and she said she was standing at the kitchen window and he came limping up to the back of the house, pushing the bike with dirt all over him and leaves in his hair. She watched as he wiped it all off, put the bike away and came inside like nothing happened. She inquired as the the leaves still in his hair and finally he fessed up- he was riding the trail through the woods and came to the wooden bridge and decided he was going to pop a wheelie like he was 13 and instead, when he hit the ridge, the bike stopped sudden and he flew over the handlebars. He said he first thought he was really hurt and might have broken something, but then he heard voices of approaching people, so he jumped up and acted all cool until they passed and then walked the bike home. We laughed so hard over that and even threatened to place a plaque on the bridge. We were apparently a clumsy bunch, because in the 5 years we all lived here, we have MANY “scene” stories.

Oh, sweet crap! That is friggin hysterical!

I LOVE shit like that…simply priceless stuff. And I only laugh at others because I can’t tell you how many times I have flitted around wearing heels and totally lost all possibility of coolness. Then try to straighten back up and be all nonchalant about it.


That is the best though…leaves in his hair!!! I am dying!

Jennifer February 23, 2012 at 2:42 pm

One time David and I were riding bikes around the neighborhood, this was years and years ago. They had just resurfaced the street so it was raised for the shoulder a couple of inches. I was riding behind him and the front time of my bike slipped off the side of the street. I lost control and went sprawling. It was horrible. I was all tangled up in the bike, but I, of course, immediately jumped back up and started going. David was all, “are you okay?” “Yes, I’m fine. I’m fine. Just go.” Meanwhile I was riding behind him “ow, ow, ow, ow,” under my breath. I had a HUGE bruise all down the side of my leg.

That has got to be worse when there’s equipment involved.

The more I read comments, I remember other times I’ve assed off. Like, when I first moved to Austin and stumbled a really, really ugly stumble with arms flailing, purse dropping, shit rolling out of my purse.

Right smack in the intersection of 6th and Congress. The busiest intersection in this city. Right at 5:00 pm, too.

Yeah, I’m awesome.

Jamie February 23, 2012 at 10:18 pm

Carrie, I just love you.

I cried almost through that entire video from laughing so hard. My husband told me I was acting like an idiot. I lost it when you said you ran from your bleeding mom. Oh my good gosh, that’s hysterical. Sounds like something I would have done to my mom, too. πŸ™‚

I’ve fallen more times than I can count. I always fall, run in to things, stub my toes, etc. Ridiculous. πŸ™‚

Carrie February 24, 2012 at 1:08 pm

Yes. I left her laying there. I couldn’t chance some college dude seeing me with such a clutz.

However, I am honestly much more clutzy than she could even try to be.

I just remember walking away really, really fast. Then it turned to a trot. And I didn’t even know where I was trotting off to. I was just trotting off.

And back at you with all that love…but with a little more added!

SHUT. UP. You and Kristy are neighbors? How cool! What are y’all waiting for? Someone bake a batch of cookies and bring them over already! I always laugh at prat-falls. I blame hours of Bugs Bunny cartoons as a kid.

Outing myself: I was at a friends house last summer for a Girl’s Night. Our host’s very tomboy daughter was there, too. It was past sunset & we were hanging around the fire pit. She lives on a lake, so it’s chilly at night, and it also happened to be fish fly (a.k.a. June bugs) season so the fish flies were out & dive bombing the firelight. They can be swarmy & gross, but they’re totally harmless. Some of the ladies were squealing about the bugs flying into them, so the host’s daughter was teasing them about being “scaredy-old-ladies.” Well, I grew up not far from a big lake where fish flies were very prevalent. (Read: Everywhere.) So I picked a fish fly by the wings, and held it near the girl. Her tough act instantly melted and she shrieked and ran. Not to be outdone, and clearly thinking myself to be a 10 year old girl as well, I chased her with the fish fly in one hand. In flip flops. On & off a boardwalk. With a drink in my hand. Suffice it to say that I totally pancaked as I evidently did not want to let go of either the bug or my beverage. I had scrapes & bruises on my shins and elbows. And my pride. πŸ˜‰ Go ahead & laugh. It was hilarious.

And if you think for a minute that I didn’t sneak in the house later on to put a couple of fish flies on the girl’s pillow, you would be wrong. Her mother endorsed this, of course.

Carrie February 24, 2012 at 1:12 pm

I TOTALLY GET THAT!! That’s like all the times I’ve chased my nieces with fake cockroaches and fake dog turds!!

They don’t fall for it too much anymore, but oh when they do…it’s CLASSIC stuff!

And hellz yeah…they both have rolled over in bed to see a fake dog turd on their pillow! I live for moments like that.

And really. I don’t care what the situation…there is never one serious enough to dump an adult beverage. Never.

Becca February 25, 2012 at 1:23 am

Great vlog! My funniest fall that I remember happened in the snow in Colorado. I wouldn’t let anyone touch my backpack because I didn’t want it near the snow…so I wore it on my back and promptly fell down hard on my butt. I laughed so hard!!!! I think laughing is normal πŸ˜‰
Becca recently posted..CornbreadMy Profile

Carrie February 25, 2012 at 11:28 am

HAHA! No one could touch it so it wouldn’t be near the snow so you wore it skiing in the snow.


Welcome to my world. I do that kind of “in your face” stuff every day of my life!

Jessica March 3, 2012 at 4:44 pm

I’ve never done anything remotely like this, or like Kristy. Ever. The End.

I love this so much! I’m not the only one who’s done this (so good to know!) I fell when I was out running last year. It had just rained and I wiped out (went down HARD!) on a patch of mud. I got road rash all the way up one side of my leg, and gravel stuck in my hand. I was a couple miles away from home, no cell…I had to hobble home on my bloody stump. πŸ™‚ hee hee

Carrie March 4, 2012 at 11:09 am

Oh, wow. It makes it hard to laugh if there’s blood involved.

I’m so glad you’re ok though.

You know, I’m in that same league. If I’m gonna do something like that, it’s gonna be when I have no phone or no car, or especially if I’m somewhere I have no business being.

Most likely the latter of those.

Melssa Placzek March 4, 2012 at 11:37 am

the thing that’s funny about it is when I fell I didn’t think about the pain as much as I was worried about who saw me πŸ™‚
