pink is the new red

at least according to my orthopedic surgeon. he also said hot pink is the favorite color choice of teenaged boys. hm.

so here i am, 17 days after i first broke my ankle.

(please don’t look at my roots. i am waaay overdue for a color.) dig that cast! it’s a brand new fiberglass job. had my staples and stitches out today, and an appointment about 3 weeks from now to have it off and replaced with a brace.

doc said everything looks good. he also said i was an operating room favorite, in that i broke it hiking, unlike the the majority of their cases which are mostly some variation on a “got drunk and fell down the stairs” theme.

oh, and if you’ve never assembled an IKEA shelving unit, here’s what the hardware looks like.

hard to believe that all this junk just stays where it is. should make for some interesting airport screening…
