long time, no posting

I'm beginning to think blogging may not work out to be a career for me. I keep thinking of stuff to post, but half of it just sounds like whining. I was going to post about the hernia op, but that would just be dull and full of words like "ow" and "more painkillers ... now !". Plus it's feeling much better, thankyouverymuch, to the point where I was even able to point on my own socks these last couple of days.

The one thing about it that kills me though is not being able to exercise for six weeks. A dream I remembered this morning had me riding my bicycle back in the UK. I could see myself riding 90 miles, and then woke up wishing it were true. Normally I just dream about stockings, so this must be important to push those thoughts aside. What ? Stop looking at me like that ! Sheesh ....

Still, putting my own socks on ... that's something.

Choosing movies

It's been a little quiet round here recently - anyone else notice that ? Anyway, finally, some big news ! We're back on Netflix and I've put every disk of the Family Guy, seasons one through three, onto the top of the queue. It's the funniest show on TV at the moment, bar none. I still laugh when I think about Brian making the apple orbit around Peter's stomach. And I believe there are other things out there too ... nothing as funny obviously, but may still be good.

So, in the time I've not watched movies - four months or so - what should I catch up on ?

Here's my current list (top part), minus Family Guy:
Sky High
Better Than Sex
Lords of Dogtown
Living in Oblivion
Better Off Dead
I Heart Huckabees
Fever Pitch
Coupling: Season 3: Disc 1
Coupling: Season 3: Disc 2
The Haunted Mansion
Win a Date with Tad Hamilton!
Wild Things 2
Do You Believe in Miracles?
Scary Movie 3
The Man Who Wasn't There
Along Came Polly
Teacher's Pet
