|10:30 pm - I go into that store all the time, too. :/|
Things I did today: Fainted at the comic shop.
Right onto a rack of comics, too.
No, really. And I still don't know why (Well, IDK if I actually lost consciousness. I did end up on the floor while the guy standing next to me proceeded to panic.)
But seriously, I was just standing in Minotaur, flicking through the comics (Detective Comics #881, to be precise), when I noticed that I was feeling rather light-headed. So I reached up to put the comic back on the shelf, and then I just sort of... fell onto it - the rack, I mean. And then onto the floor. Where I sort of lay for a few minutes before the guy next to me, whose name
and phone number I really should have gotten since he was nice, went and got my water bottle out for me.
Which made for a rather odd afternoon.
No idea what that was all about. (Best guess is that my rather graphic imagination + some of the more disturbing/brutal aspects of the scene in the comic did not combine well in my brain. Well, I am just not good with witnessing certain types of injury, even in fiction.)
I ended up buying a new hat to make me feel better. Well, it was on special.
Oh, and I also went on school placement today. ;)
Current Mood: weird
Jeez, that's pretty frightening. Glad to hear it was nothing serious.
I'm hoping it was just my brain being unable to cope with certain disturbing fictional concepts.
Ugh, having passed out a couple of times...hope you're okay now.
The only other times I can recall something like this happen was when I've had blood taken. Or when I got my navel pierced.
...Oh, and certain gruesome videos like Un Chien Andalou and whatever that one about the plane-crash and people who need to become cannibals.

I will occasionally faint if I have been sitting down for a while and then I stand up quickly.
But I imagine that you had walked to the comic shop so that seems unlikely to have caused it for you...
Also I faint sometimes when I have a really heavy period.
I fainted on a plane once... Just got up just after the seatbelt sign went off and keeled over in the aisle. Woke up to an oxygen mask on my face. It was flying back to Melbourne from LA so I had like 15 hours of people checking that I was feeling okay >.<
It is funny, when I was a kid I thought it would be somehow glamorous and romantic to be prone to fainting fits... I used to hold my breath to try and make myself faint and everything...
Then I grew up to be someone who is actually prone to fainting and... Yeah. It is much more embarrassing than I thought it would be.
My, what a series of adventures you have there.
