Under the knife

Posted January 25 by John Birmingham

Not much work done today. I went into surgery this morning to have a bunch of BCCs cut out of my back and chest. Seven in all, although some weren't deep enough to warrant the full Jack the Ripper treatment so they got burned into craters with lasers or some shit.

Anyway, I've got an afternoon of codeine and beer ahead of me, I reckon, which almost makes it all worthwhile. I might even catch up on my Netflix stack.

The removal of the skin cancers is timely given the ABC story from last years National Sunscreen Summit recommends we apply sunscreen daily.

Look forward to hearing what gems you unearth on Netflix for me to watch, no lets be honest, add to my steadily growing 'to watch list'.

I'm watching The Ballad of Buster Scruggs. It's pretty full on.
