I’m Miserable With Flu

… and I’m feeling sorry for myself, and instead of sleeping off a Med-Lemon, I’m moping.

Feel free to jump to another blog instead of reading this codeine induced drivel.

I wish I was a writer. I fancied myself one once. My teachers thought I could be one when I was in high school.Β I realised later, that I may have been one of the better essay writers in my class, I’m not a writer.Β But I am a blogger, so I get to pretend sometimes. πŸ˜‰

I wish I was a photographer. I had the idea that I could do it professionally, long ago. But I’m not. I’m a happy snapper with a fantastic camera that my darling husband gave to me because he knows I like to pretend.

I’m always a little jealous of the writers and photographers I know and admire.

Ppfffft…

I have a few things that I NEED to blog about, but I can’t because I don’t have the privacy or anonymity I need in order to do so… and because I don’t usually use language on my blog like the language I have bouncing around in my mental blog post drafts.

I will update with a proper blog post, but for now I’m going to go and wallow a little more.

Holy Crap… Can We Slow Down Please!??

February is almost halfway through, and I am waaaaay behind!

I’m behind on my blog reading. I’m behind on the work I need to do on my wedding invitations. I’m behind on post writing. And then to crown it all, my blog suddenly will not allow me to load pictures- so I can’t even take part in this week’s Female2Female challenge! I am baking up a storm though- with lots of cupcake orders for this weekend I am more than busy enough.

πŸ™

And now to make my life that liiiittle bit more interesting, my laptop has decided it won’t clip my 3G card into place anymore, so unless I’m at home with my darling Glugster’s iBurst modem, I can’t really go online.

IT SUCKS!!!

Me with no internet is not a good thing. Especially not at work. Thank goodness for my new Blackberry 9000 Smartphone- I can at least do my emails and tweet properly…

The Ankle Saga…

I know you’re all waiting to hear about our annual sibling supper- and its coming soon I promise… I just thought I’d mention the ankle first. πŸ™‚

This past Saturday it was 7 weeks since I damaged the ligaments in my right ankle. 7 WEEKS!!!Β And yesterday for the first time, it didn’t ache all the time! Yesterday and today I can actually walk on it without the crutch and it doesn’t hurt with every step.

It still hurts, make no mistake, especially when I sleep without the brace on and I twist it in my sleep… and after a day at work which includes driving myself to and fro.

I have gained a lot of mobility but I’m nowhere near as flexible as I was yet. I’m still doing physio, and I’m doing the exercises she gave me that I can do myself… but it’ll still be a while before I can wear my beloved Nine West’s again πŸ™

Its getting better at last! I am so so happy! And I am determined to go to Oz without needing the crutch.

Top Ten Tuesday

…is another stolen blogging idea- this time from SleepyJane!!
This is my first top ten Tuesday list, and my first list is going to be- brace yourselves- my ten favourite movies of all time! Hey… I never said these lists would be phenomenally interesting or anything! Anyhoodle, here hey are. They’re in no particular order, I tried- but I couldn’t order them without going back and rearranging them…!

1. Beetlejuice I saw this on the big screen with a gawjiss dude I had an immense crush on… we stayed very close friends for years too. It was this movie that got me hooked on Tim Burton’s style!

2. From Dusk Till Dawn was directed by Robert Rodriquez and written by Quentin Tarantino. I’m a fan of both of them. This is one of Damien’s favourites too.

3. The Lost Boys is a total cult classic by Joel Schumacher- he revamped the vampire movie genre completely! My knucklehead loves this one too, he even has a T-shirt.

4. Romeo and Juliet, the Baz Luhrmann version. The only movie I can think of that has ever made me cry. Ever.

5. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang blew me away! I was home alone one Friday afternoon, with no Damien and before Glugs, and I saw this on the rental shelf. With Robert Downey Jr and Val Kilmer as top billing I was intrigued as I’d never heard of it. Lemme tell you, bunnies- I enjoyed it so much I watched it twice in a row!

6. Alien Ridley Scott’s absolute classic- I’ve lost count of how many times the knucklehead and I have seen this and we still jump!

7. Se7en is along the genre-lines of “Silence of the Lambs” I think. It’s scary, and has me on the edge of my seat every time I watch it. Kevin Spacey is quite chilling in his performance…

8. Lucky Number Slevin is a stroke of genius. Its one of those movies that only adds up right at the end, with a really juicy twist in it too!

9. Kill Bill 1 and Kill Bill 2 are absolute favourites. If you haven’t seen them, then go right ahead- just keep in mind they’re made to echo the manga comics and movies and for that reason are very over the top.

10. 12 Monkeys is a vastly underrated post-apocalyptic, science fiction movie, starring a Brad Pitt in a simply magnificent portrayal of a lunatic, and Bruce Willis as a stressed and confused time-traveler. I have it on DVD and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve watched it.

I’m A Wee Bit B-Listless…

I have a lot on my mind and yet not much at all.
Doesn’t make much sense does it?
Don’t panic, I’ll be back, as soon as I have something worth writing about.
I must be honest- I lost a helluva lot when my laptop crashed and I’m still trying to recover some of it- including ideas and notes for blog posts. Its been a little disheartening to have to start so many things over again.
