In two and a half hours last night, I managed to overturn a full seltzer glass (onto the floor, not my keyboard, thankfully)--and they're squat little glasses with a nice thick base, too--and knock a somewhat affectionately-held piece of stoneware off a shelf. Fortunately, the stoneware did not shatter, but I did take a nice thick chip out of the lip, and further, it took me four freaking tries to glue it back together, because I kept dropping the pieces.
Discretion proved the better part of valor. I went to bed.
But not before I managed to explode a lightbulb while turning on a light for kit_kindred.
Dammit. Knew I should have worn the tinfoil cap.
