I think I may FINALLY be kidney stone free. Granted I've only had a day and a half of non-pain. But still, I think it's done. IT BETTER BE DONE. (If my kidney is reading this - that was a command.)
I finished all 7 seasons of Buffy. (Lots of couch time the past few weeks.) I was going to watch all the seasons of Angel too, except that my loyalty shifted dramatically towards Spike and therefore watching Angel would have been like committing ultimate treason.
Poor Spike. I liked him even before he got his soul back. I was pretty much devastated when he burned up in the final episode. Until I learned online that he just gets transferred to LA and into the Angel show. Which now means that I MUST watch Angel. Except that I have some mega catching up to do, in the area of normal life, from all the time spent laying on my couch in unspeakably annoying kidney pain. But I'll fit all those Angel seasons in somehow (because I can't possibly just watch the final season without knowing all the minute details of the previous seasons - 'tis crucial, those details).
Is it horrible that I have a favorite episode of Buffy? That's not horrifically nerdy, right? (It's the musical one in season 6 called "One More Time, with Feeling" in case you want to look it up, watch it and love it.)
And if all this talk about Buffy the show hasn't convinced you that I'm a geek....
I also found out online today that they have a whole series of Buffy graphic novels that pick up where the show left off. And GOOD NEWS, our public library has them!!!!!!! I told Husband that I was going to go check out the first few tomorrow. He just rolled his eyes and did one of those "you're such a dork" sighs. At least I'm pretty sure he did, because we were IMing at the time and those kinds of things aren't exactly noticeable. (Unless you use emoticons, of course. But what kind of dweeb uses emoticons? I'm way too cool for that.)
In all my couch laying glory things were pretty neglected. Things like taking showers or feeding my kids. You know, just the essentials. I did however manage to drive the kids to school on most days. Have you ever had the thought, "I better not get into a car accident while I'm out, because if the paramedics see my hair this greasy, I'll probably have to die"? I had a lot of those thoughts. And also, "Why are we always out of fruit snacks?!!"
Also, I noticed little obnoxious things like how stinking slow little kids are when climbing into minivans. Number Four is on this kick of "MEEEEEEEE" which is pretty all encompassing, but mostly when it comes to doing things for herself. So that gets Monkey thinking, "MEEEEEEEE" and next thing I know, I have to just stand and watch as they climb into the minivan and up into their carseats which makes my brain automatically jump to thinking about Zombies and how incredibly slow they seem to crawl up things. And by the time the kids have gotten in their seats and are facing a normal direction in which I can buckle them I've already pondered every Zombie movie made, and why are the people so afraid of the Zombies when you can outrun one pretty dang quick, because it's not like they're moving any faster than naked slugs climbing an ice cube that is also covered in molasses.
So basically, I'm a geek. Because when given a chance, my brain likes to focus on things like vampire slayers, zombies, naked slugs and now graphic novels. Next thing you know, I'll be dressing up like a elvin princess and attending Comicon.
