On Thursday I'm going to have foot surgery. At least, we hope that I can have foot surgery; it may be the case that whatever it is has gotten too infected and we'll need to go through a period of temporary procedures to remove the infection, and then do the foot surgery. The temporary procedures also involve knives, unfortunately.

Whatever happens, I'll be too out of it to film. Or edit. Or do much of anything other than sitting in my chair and taking pain medication; it's not exactly friendly towards cogitating about Terra Mystica. I'm hoping I can game at least a little but I'm thinking I might just be watching the rest of Gargoyles and then something else. I also have a small DVD series about Chinese music, too, that I should enjoy.

The whole surgery thing I've gone through before, and it's gotten me down, I admit. There's so much I have had to do to prepare for a period of not being able to drive (it's my right foot) or walk very far (at least not without a lot of pain). I live alone, so there's not much help and I don't like bothering people. I haven't filmed for a week because I've been so worried and it comes across in the footage and the voice overs.

But I'm not too, too worried. It'll be ok, I'll survive, and all that. From past experience I'll be kind of OK after a few weeks, and still on the cane for about two months after. I actually don't mind the cane, even though it doesn't have a fancy tip on it. It's helped so much in the past that it seems bad to resent it in any way.

Anyways! This is all to say "ignore the calendar for a month."
