A bit better

October 28, 2008

My mood has improved a little since my last few posts. Not completely, but it has improved.

So, what’s been going on around here for the last two weeks? Uh, not a whole lot. I’ve done lots of laundry, we got new windows Thursday, our furnace went out twice, iTunes is now on my laptop and I uploaded a slew of songs, Time Warner is fighting with the owner of our local Fox station and yanked the channel so we can’t watch new House episodes until eight days after they air, we got a new garbage disposal.

That’s about it. I know, exciting stuff. Oh, I went home early with a migraine on Oct. 8 and nipped one in the bud Saturday night. Hadn’t had one since December, just before my surgery. Don’t know what that’s all about. Well, actually, I have an idea, but I think we’ll just chalk it up to coincidence.

Sooooo … Friday I’m going to Columbus with Jenn to see her friend’s band perform. Our costumes, if we can pull them together will be very cute. I’m not telling you what they are though! I’ll post pictures this weekend.

And that’s about it. Pity me and my lack of Fox tonight.


Migraine Christmas

December 28, 2003

Just read MB’s blog, and I’m so glad to know I’m not a freak, because I too cried while watching “Return of the King.” There were a few parts that got me, but I think the main one was when…oh, maybe I shouldn’t say, in case people haven’t seen it yet. I’ll just say it’s toward the end and involves Frodo. I haven’t read the books, so I had no idea what was going to happen. We rented “Fellowship of the Ring” and “Two Towers” last week, and I had to know what happened, so we went to the movies on Christmas. Plus, I wanted to see Aragorn on the big screen… And one of the previews was for “Prisoner of Azkaban,” so it was a kick-ass evening.

We had a very nice Christmas, aside from the migraine Santa brought me on Christmas Eve. As soon as we got to my grandparents’ house I had to lie down with an ice pack on my forehead. Dave says I was in hiding for about two hours. I think I almost froze my left eye, but that’s OK. I’m sending a big shout out to everyone who came in to check on me, and to myself for not puking on Grandpa & Ruth’s bed.

On Christmas Day, we made our very first turkey, and it was go-od! Nothing like the one in “Christmas Vacation,” which Dave was a little worried about. Sugar Puddin’ started going nuts before it was even in the oven, which is always amusing. She got her little bit of Christmas turkey, and didn’t even puke it up like she’s been known to do when she eats meat too fast. Silly kitty!

One of the presents I got from “the cats” was Simpson’s Road Rage for the gamecube. It’s great, because you’re supposed to drive like you’re drunk! Sometimes you get a bonus if you destroy enough stuff, and they say some hi-larious things when you crash or run over people. Imagine Homer saying “I’m not a very good driver” in a low voice or shouting “I have no insurance!” or Mayor Quimby saying “You drive worse than cousin Teddy!” (For those of you who aren’t familiar with the Simpsons, Quimby sounds very Kennedy-esque) We’ve been cracking ourselves up since Thursday.

That’s all for now. Buh-bye!

*BURN UPDATE* Yup, still there.
