New Guy

24 Dec

Got ma new cast! It’s pretty fly. When I walked in to the cast room in the doctors office there was a hall of fame of casts they had removed…

And this is what I went for…

 

I haven’t decided yet whether I should leave it as is or decorate it… Guess we’ll see?!?!?

Ain’t Nothin Wrong With a Little Self-Promo, Amirite Ladies??

What up what uuuup!?

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, today IS in fact the ONE WEEK anniversary of my surgery. That means I’ve been in my bed for about 168 hours, getting out only to use the bathroom and take the occasional shower. I have pretty much no muscle left in either leg and I’m starting to forget what the outside world looks like. It’s been a mixed bag of good times and bad, I’d say, but in reality I just canNOT WAIT to leave this room. Which leads me to my next topic…

I will be emerging from the dungeon THIS SATURDAY NIGHT to play a show with my band, Emily Warren & The Betters. Here’s the flyer:

It’s at Arlene’s Grocery which is located at 95 Stanton Street and we will be hitting the stage at 11:30. I’d love to see you there, darling…

DAY TWO!

10 Dec

Good morning!

I just had my first shower since the operation… and LET ME JUST TELL YOU it was a divine experience. The best thing I can post that is shower-related is, of course, one of the scariest scenes in film history: the shower scene from Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho. CHECK THIS!

Okay and ALSO here’s a cool song / mash-up that includes the word “shower” in it’s title.. Sort of. Here’s Giving Up the Sunshowers (M.I.A. vs. Vampire Weekend)

The Story

WHAT UP Y’ALL

My name is Emily Warren, I’m 18 years old and I live in New York City.

Yesterday I got major surgery on my ankle to reconnect a ligament that I sprained three years ago and then tore over time. Recovery is 4-5 months which meansĀ  I’ll have a lot of down time–especially for the next two weeks since I’m not supposed to really leave bed unless it’s absolutely necessary.

So I’m gonna keep a blog! Put up anything and everything that amuses me and seems worthy of sharing. So here I go…
