Hi readers! Here's my first picture of the new year -- I'm a little worse for the wear, but have been enjoying being out of the hospital and gaining weight (the hospital food weirdly didn't appeal as much as you'd think). I hope everyone is having a great first day of 2009! I'll be back with regular posts tomorrow now that I'm doing better. The staples come out of my wound soon so the scar shots will be soon -- it's a doozy, but I think it will look very cool. Happy New Year's everyone!
