I am not sure how many of you would understand my comment about not being drunk, so I will explain it. The bird I have turned into is a cedar waxwing. They feed almost exclusively on berries and can sometimes get intoxicated by eating fermented berries.
@Tresset Your shapeshifting comment made me think of a user's signature on the old NWN BioWare forums back in the day. "Normal kids play Rock, Paper, Scissors. Shifter kids play Iron Golem, Rust Monster, Mind Flayer."
I was told that the operation went well and I am recovering as expected. Things are still a bit blurry at times, but I can see well enough now to use the computer. The hardest thing for me to do right now is reading, but it is getting better. I also need hourly eye drops for several months and that is really annoying, but overall it isn't that bad. The first couple of days after the surgery were really painful though.
