Did I mention I use a walking stick when walking for more than a block or so?

This is actually fairly recent, and I hate it so very very much indeed...

Last November, in the spring rains (I live in Australia, remember), I had a rather nasty motorbike crash. I may or may not have mentioned it in passing... but I lost a very large chunk of flesh and muscle from one knee, and the doctor said that I was very lucky that I didn't shatter my kneecap. It took them almost an hour to make me agree to let them zot me with a local (I had an irrational fear of needles at that point - I got over it a few weeks back) so they could stitch me up.

Long story short, after much pain, and serving the MELBOURNE BLOODY CUP DAY as a waiter with a sodding walking stick - not an easy thing to do, and it set back the healing process by almost a month - it's all healed up and I have a glorious red-gray scar right across my left knee.

And I still ride my bike.

Did I mention that Melbourne Cup Day is the biggest social event of the year?

Sort of like Black Friday, restaurant style? Ouch, once again.

You're starting to remind me of my uncle.. I think he's had close to every surgery a man can have and still be alive.
