So What'd I Miss...eh eh eh?

Yes, it is true...your eyes do not deceive you: I have returned from the living dead!  Here's what you missed while I was away:
  • After Ezio passed away, I was pretty emo
  • Shortly after, I had a pretty bad accident to my left hand, which resulted in 17 stitches & a broken pinky
  • I rushed into surgery to get a pin implanted, which ensured my bone healed straight
  • I recently got the pin removed (it was only temporary) & I am now in physical therapy 2x a week for at least 8-weeks to recuperate

so close to being...
As fun as it was to pretend I was 1/10th Lady Deathstrike (or 1/6th Wolverine), it's been a rough 3 months trying to get acclimated with not using my left hand & once I was able to - reconditioning my hand to function after all of the trauma.  I'm still in physical therapy & working on being in good spirits, but after being away for so long, I really did miss blogging.  But as you can imagine, I could barely shower, nevertheless wearing FASHUNZ clothes, so it's been a rough journey.  Let's list some of things I COULD & COULD NOT do!

Stuff I COULD Do:                                                                    Stuff I COULD NOT Do:
1. Take as many painkillers as I wanted                               1. Take a normal shower
2. Watch an immense amount of Netflix                               2. Put my hand through sleeves
3. Put on eyeliner (I am right-handed)                                   3. Put on contacts
4. Type & text with one hand                                                   4. Submerge my hand in water
5. Travel (with ice)                                                                     5. Type & text with 2 hands
6. Go through airport security                                                 6. Run, exercise, or go to the gym
                                                                                                     7. Extend, flex or bend my hand & fingers
                                                                                                     8. Button my jeans
                                        
Anyway, no more sob stories, but I hope that explains my MYSTERIOUS DISAPPEARANCE.  Unfortunately, I did not come back with a different nose or bigger boobs...just the same ol me, but slightly broken, lol.

This past weekend I had a fun little trip with Rye Bread (afterall, I DID get the pin removed, it was time to celebrate!)  Going out deserves a little spiciness to an outfit, but I am OVER tight Herve Leger wanna-be dresses, so a loose top, jean cut-off shorts & a little thigh-highs was my go-to outfit.  Apologies for the gross room lighting. Doesn't it know I have a blog to upkeep? GOSH.

Thanks for everyone's well-wishes on Formspring - I know I should have at least written a quick "BRB" note, but I could barely muster up the energy to turn on my computer, so thanks for sticking by me!  MY READERZ ARE DA BEST MANG.

  1. WHOA. Surgery looked intense and glad to see that you're back in action. (Love the X Men reference.)

    So sorry to hear about Ezio; I was just about to ask before I read the above.

    On a more lighthearted note, you are rocking those thigh highs!

  12. Oh my goodness.
    I thought you were gone forever.
    Happy to read that you are okay.
    Injuries are a nuisance but sometimes unpreventable.
    Take care and good luck with the physical therapy.
