[Wow, they have a Thinkpad T40 now. That's okay, I like Macavity.]
Anyway, I thought my BART train was arriving, and the people behind me on the escalator were in a hurry. I thought my train was arriving despite knowing that my train left at 12:03. So...trying to exit an escalator in a hurry is a *bad* idea, especially when you've got 50 pounds of stuff in odd configurations. My Birks are loose (I really should tighten them)and I didn't quite gauge the off escalator point in a hurry, and you an probably guess what happened.
One shoe got caught on the edge of where the escalator edge is, and et voila, over I went. I suddenly stopped the people behind me who were in a hurry, because they saw me fall over. They kept asking if I was okay. And I am, I just bumped my right knee and right elbow, so the knee is slightly bruised and the elbow lost a bit of skin, but I didn't hit my head (even if I lost the ballcap in the fall), and I was honestly more worried about how Macavity had survived. But since I'm writing this on Macavity, I think you can see that the answer is pretty damn well.
Now I just need to check the Palm and the router, but I'm sure they're both okay. Palm wasn't in the pocket I landed on.
