I still plan to be there this Friday - broken nose and all. :o Tip - don't go to Bristol and look too obviously like you're from London or something - can get you headbutted. :'(

Got into work yesterday and the ladies told me to get to hospital. Doctor looked at it, says probably is broken, did a few tests and let me go.

[edit] doesn't look as bad as it sounds.

Met up with some friends in Bristol - the Harbour Festival was on. Saturday night - random guy in street removes the cap from my head and headbutts me. That's a nice hello and welcome!

I'd say that some west-country type, not liking the cut of our hero's jib, head-butted him and broke his nose.
Oh, Bach without any doubt. Bach every time for me.

That's what I surmised.  Crikey - there are people you'd take such exception to, but our Erron isn't one of them.

Should be OK when the swelling goes down - doesn't look too bent to me. I've picked out all the blood bogeys now so am breathing clearly!  :sick: :thumbsup::

I was wearing skin tight jeans, and boots with a 2" heel - think that might have been the problem!

The guy disappeared, I was pretty shocked. Did report it to the police though.

He was disturbed by how much he fancied you and, confused by these unfamiliar stirrings of man-love, paniced and struck out at the object of his affection.

Or summat ;D

I can confirm it was totally unprovoked as I was standing right next to him at the time. It's likely he only went for TOKs is because he's only ickle. I don't think the guy would have been able to reach my head. It wasn't a very nice experience.

The cops were called, but there was not a lot they could do. But we did give a description and the direction he fucked off in, so at least the zillions of cops all over the city that night could be alerted that there is a violent maniac on the loose. If the bloke was that wound up, I don't doubt he'd go looking for more people to head butt.
Those wonderful norks are never far from my thoughts, oh yeah!

Oh.  You were there, too, bobb?  Don't you think a pink stetson is a bit provocative in such circumstances? ;)

Bloody hell - the Stetson probably would have caused a riot.

It could've been worse! You might have been on your way to a Rocky Horror Picture Show dressed a Frank 'n' Furter.  ::-)

We did have a theme though. Baseball caps, mirror shades, 80's NYC tops and skinny jeans!

Our bobb on the right, I'm pressing the button. This is before we managed to anger anyone, I think... ;)
