I’ve been meaning to post more, I swear!!! Real life throws wicked curves sometimes.
So, I got home from work on Friday and met Fae at our friend J’s house for dinner. We get together far too infrequently, so this was a nice treat. He’s a great cook, but unfortunately, everything I ate tasted the same. My sinus infection had been getting worse by the hour to the point where when I got home, I took my pillow and blanket and slept downstairs. I snore even in the best of situations. When I’m sick, it’s scary. I mean peel the paint off the walls scary. Ever have a simus infection where when you try to blow your nose or clear the pressure in your head by popping your ears? Yeah, ever time I did that, the pressure got worse. Started taking Levaquin that night, even tho it WRECKS my stomach.
Woke up saturday feeling a little more human, watched some movies with the kids – btw, Coraline is fuckin twisted, I don’t care who you are. Excellent movie, and one I would recommend, but really whacko. Ever watch those Christmas Specials with the stop motion puppets – “I’m Mr. Heat miser…” it was that kind of movie. Ah, I just looked it up – Neil Gaiman, now I understand a lot more. Dude is brilliant. Twisted, but brilliant. Watched several episodes of The Cleaner with Fae, caught up to where it is in the season. If you’ve never watched it, see it. Benjamin Bratt is excellent. It’s based on a real dude who was an addict and now saves people from addiction.
Sunday was a lot better, woke up with a fairly clear head and little to no headache. Watched Pride and Glory with Ed Norton and Colin Farrell. I’d like to see someone else’s POV on this movie because in truth, I wasn’t that impressed. I mean, it was well acted, the storyline was good, but it was SO FUCKING PREDICTABLE!!! Sorry. Unfortunately, the only movie that I haven’t been able to predict the end within the first 20 min was The Sixth Sense, which I still like to go back and watch because it totally did me over. Anyway, it was a good movie, don’t get me wrong, I just want to see if anyone else saw the ending coming a mile away.
Went to the pool with the kids, and it was cool and not humid enough that Fae came down for an hour or so. I got in for a little bit, but the combo of just being sick and the temp in the pool had me out 10 min later. Tossed the sink toys for the kids for a while and then we packed up and went home. Fairly nice day just relaxing. Fairly nice weekend for that matter.
Got home, ate some dinner, watched True Blood – great episode btw, won’t give anything away – and crashed early.
