Oh my god I am so over this. 
We have compression sock + compression sleeve + heating pad + constant motion machine - ice pad. There's not enough television to make this bearable. #kneesurgery #ttt #tto #tibialtubercleosteotomy #tibialtubercletransfer

Wish I was back at @gin71bar in #glasgow sampling all the #gins! .
.
This was their #ginandtonic flight which was paired with specific garnishes in #tonicwater ice cubes and mixed with their house made mixers. .
.
From left to right: #langleysoldtom w/ lemon and lemon maraschino tonic; #ginmare w/ grapefruit and their savory tonic (oh my god I wanted to marry that tonic); #blindtigerpiper's #cubeba blend w/ spiced orange tonic. (Not pictured, my lovely drinking companion @littlemisscritical ☺️)

Good news - #kneesurgery went well! (And the staff at #cpmc has been incredible!)

Bad news - still don't have robot legs *or* a wheel like Rosie The Robot from The Jetsons! But I do have Cadaver tissue so I think that's just as cool!

“The last 150 years aren’t as much worth celebrating as we think, but the new 150 years can be years of building an actual nation." #GordDownie

#Canada isn't perfect. We are on colonized land. We have willfully destroyed the lives of our Native/First Nations people's. Our black and brown siblings can and do speak out daily about the ways where we don't quite live up to the hype we sell abroad about ourselves. .
And yet...
.
We have hope. We can take this #canada150 and reflect, and then *take action*. What do we want the next 150 years to look like? Do we want to live up to our peaceful, liberal image of 'live and let live'? Do we want to stand up to hate? Do we want to build ourselves in the image we see?
.
Fake it 'till you make it is a strategy. We've faked it for this long, now we gotta make it. .
Canada, I love you. I may hate #aircanada, #thettc, the cold, the heat, the racist past, the racist present. But still, I love you more with every day that passes because I have #hope in you. I have hope that we can and will be better. .
I love your humour, your 'nice', your people. I love that #compassion and #healthcare and basic human dignities are our defining virtues.  I love French Canada (no matter how much they make fun of us ;). I love Native Canadians. I love that feeling I get when my flight lands at #YYZ. I love @timhortons.  I love the #Caribbean people and culture that first opened my eyes.  I love that my high school was so #Asian that everyone else was a 'visible minority' and the lessons that came with that. I love Younge St. I love that #loblaws kept #mapleleafgardens's centre ice.  I love that my cultural heroes walk the same streets I did (@thepetermansbridge & #margaretatwood) I love #zed (not #zee). I love our extra #u in words.  I love #tvo and that we have our own state sponsored television channel (so much love to @cbc and The National which (surprisingly) has some of the only balanced news coverage left in this continent.  I love that we got rid of the #penny. I love that we gave the world #celinedion, #drake, #thehip and #sharonloisandbram. .
Good and bad, I love my #homeandnativeland

Looks like we're going to have to level up on the knee surgeries :/ basically the knee caps are inverse of where they should be and there's no easy fix. Just a lot of PT just to get me to a surgery ready state.

Well, I guess they can't all be great. This was one of the most disappointing of #murakami's books that I've read (yes, including #iq84), but only because I hold him to such high standards.

"I wear this crown of thorns 
Upon my liar's chair 
Full of broken thoughts 
I cannot repair ...
What have I become 
My sweetest friend 
Everyone I know goes away 
In the end."
The #johnnycash museum ends with his cover of #nin's #hurt (and his actual chair that was used) and this is the part where people were gathered the longest and the quietest, to pay their respects to the #maninblack 🖤

Wall of sound at the #patsycline museum in #nashville. If you need to know anything about me, it's my love of Patsy and her incredible voice and her no-nonsense reading of the material. As she said before she died, "When it's my time to go, it's my time."
