Am starting to count down the days until the op this coming Friday. Don't know whether to apologise or insult my right hip joint for outliving its usefulness. I've looked it up and apparently the hip replacement surgery can be done posteriorly or anteriorly. In other words it will either be my ass or my thigh which will hurt until it calms down. I am girding my loins, as they say, in anticipation. Avanti popolo!

Yesterday was the first day of 14-day pre-operation total self-isolation. Am stocked up on food etc. but apart from no walking or bus riding in the neighbourhood, life is as usual. New portrait commission on the go (from photos) and lots of other stuff to do. I presume I am the self-sufficient type but who knows?

Change of date for the hip op (hip hop). It will now be on 31st of July instead of the 24th. I don't mind the delay at all. More time to creatively procrastinate and get more eyebags to carry ideas in.

What's good for eliminating eyebags apart from teabag compresses or digital trickery? And did you know that age makes your nose grow?
