I’m actually running behind on the updates, because my surgery was on Thursday and my checkups have been mostly on Thursday. This week, I was hoping to have these damn drain tubes and bulbs removed, but that’s not going to happen. The surgeon is wisely and compassionately closing his office to spare his staff from driving in the predicted winter storm, and I have to wait until Tuesday.
I know that many have it worse, but I can only personally reference myself, and I’m tired of having straws sewn into my body, draining PBFs (Precious Bodily Fluids) into clear plastic bulbs which have to be emptied and the amounts logged daily. It spoils my image as a glamorous, sophisticated artiste. Whaddya mean, that’s not my image????
ANYWAY, I also won’t be able to see the medical oncologist on Friday, since we’re predicted to have that winter storm, with ice and sleet, tonight and, living, as I do, on a back road, I probably won’t be able to get out and about. She’s going to call me for a teleconference, though, so that’s all right.
Speaking of which, I have to give you OPDs (Other People’s Doors) today, since I’ve been staying in with my unsightly bulbs. These are more from England, taken by my friends Ginny and Robert Fleming and my British friend, Andrea Gilbey.
Here are my nails this week, preparatory to my surgeon visit which isn’t going to happen:
The sparkly pink base coat is All Mixed-Up Laquers’ Him-a-layin On My Peppercorns (I don’t name ’em, I just use ’em). The white is OPI’s Alpine Snow with a sparkly topper of pop-arazzi’s City Sparkle. The pink stamping polish is Maniology’s Cinnablush. The stamping plate is Maniology’s M153.

A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Write about a tube. Or a bulb. Or a tuber.
