Out of the Blue

I have an interesting combination of below-average coordination and above-average balance that leads to some wacky moments. Yesterday I was walking upstairs carrying a snack when I basically tripped over my own feet, leading to me stumbling up the entire flight of stairs without quite ever falling. I did, however, manage to spill iced tea on every single stair along the way. It's all cleaned up now, and who knows? Maybe they will look better after all that and I will begin to market some funky sort of tea-based furniture polish.

This is actually a listed as an error for Windows Sockets - I've seen it once before. You have to love the "returned under various conditions" bit:


System call failure.
