I've stopped treating my hip so gingerly since the doctor's appointment and it's been going pretty well.

Except that I squeak. A lot. My roommates and people I walked with could hear it. My parents, who couldn't hear it before I left, laughed and laughed when I showed them. Mum even put the phone up to my hip to show a church friend. Dad said it sounds as though there's a baby bird in my leg.

Dear Lady Luck,

On the rare occasions that I've wished for a chick in my pants, I can assure you this wasn't what I meant. There must have been some sort of mix up with delivery . Thank you for trying, I suppose.

Kiwi the Tin Lesbian

P.S. I now have one hip that squeaks and one that pops. You just wanted me to be Pipsqueak and Pop, didn't you?

Back from the con; napped but still knackered. Goodnight!

Saves you from having to wear a bell around your neck, any road. Next time we're together we can be Snap, Crackle, Pipsqueak and Pop!

Glad things are going fairly well with it, and while I'm sure it's irritating at times I hope it's less terrifying now.

I may settle for wearing the bell anyway, just so I can be my own music with melody and harmony and everything... Can't wait to be Snap, Crackle, Pipsqueak and Pop, though! We'll have to record it and make a remix.

It's much less terrifying now. It's been great watching my mental state rise up again. It's not fully up--I'm not sure it ever has been since the accident--but it's much closer to 'normal' now.

♥ back.

This made me laugh, the letter to lady luck. At least you can see the humor in it.

Be patient with yourself.

Glad it made you laugh! Yes, I always have to find the humour; otherwise it's just too much.

Lol aww. There should be a Wicked-esque wizard of oz retelling about Kiwi the Tin Lesbian.

YES. I would be all sorts of down for that.

Can there be a Tin Lesbian/Wicked Witch of the West ship, please?

Well of course, if you're into that (and who wouldn't be? ;)

Your note to Lady Luck made me laugh a good bit! At least there's some humor to go along with this part of the hip story. Makes me think of some of the sound effects Bert (I think it is) in Mary Poppins makes.

Ahhh I love that song from Mary Poppins! I love to laaaauugh, loud and long and clear.
