Yep, that'll bring you down quick        

Grabbing all of the front brake. You can apply a lot of pressure before she'll lock, but you have to already be stopping before you can get heavy handed. Grab it all at once and BOOM down you go, as you learned. That's what happened on my first crash. Good sporty tire, SS lines, HH pads, and a hard lesson in gravity ensued.

Fix your bike yourself - it's not terribly hard, and far less costly than having someone do it. See if you can find a beater FS in your area, non running will be cheapest. Congrats on not being hurt too badly (aside from your pride). Bikes can be replaced, bodies / lives cannot.
