Two months ago I broke my leg drunk biking. The first month or so I spent in a medicated fog. But the last couple of weeks, I’ve cut way back on the Oxycodone. And I’ve gotten restless. I can’t put any pressure on my leg until January, because my bone is healing. But that means that I’m awake, and kinda trapped in my house.
I’m not good at lazing around. If I was, I probably wouldn’t have been able to live off on the money I make from Snarky Cards for the last year. Before I broke my leg I’d spend 80-90 hours a week making or selling Snarky Cards. This is not as horrible as it sounds. I make the cards in my living room, usually stoned, while watching television. I usually get about 40 hours of t.v. in a week. I paint a lot of cards. And I sell my cards at bars, which means I get to drink while I’m selling. More often than not, for free. So, I’m really driven. But I’m really driven to do my really fun job.
The last couple of days I’ve been obsessing over my holiday line, and pushing myself to make more of them. It’s hard for me to paint, because I have to elevate my leg every hour or it starts to feel broken again. So, it’s taken me a long time, but I’ve knocked out about 100 so far. Here’s a preview!
Over the last several months, rather than saving my extra money for plane fare home, I have squandered all of it on beer. Unfortunately this means I won’t be coming home for the holidays.
I love and miss you all very much, I just love beer more.
