God Bless HBO On Demand! So Sunday Night I was laying on the couch watching Big Love
when I saw that starting Monday HBO On Demand was going to have the whole season available. So Monday I watched episodes 1-3 and yesterday I watched 4 and 5. So now I'm all caught up on the whole season. YAY!
Monday, went home, did nothing. Same for Tuesday. Wednesday I picked up brother's car from him at work. Went to Plasma appointment, brother took me home when I picked him up from work. Rest of the day was boring. Thursday boring as well. Friday morning Paul left for Chicago for his Con. I got here shortly after and went to my appointment. Corie went for the first time. When she donates the second time, I get a $15 "Buddy Bonus". Woo!
Since brother is gone all weekend, I'm crashing here at his house. Gonna have dad pick me up on his way home from work Tomorrow morning.
Last night after my entry I got all ready to go to bed. SO I lay down about 4. I was so tired, my eyes were watering. I woke up about an hour later, in pain. My back's been out for a while. And there's something pinched in it too. I got back to sleep after a few minutes, only to wake up again at 7:30. I was in so much pain I couldn't breathe, and I was almost crying. And of course, Paul never uses Aspirin oor anything so I couldn't take anything for it. Although, if I thought I could make it out to the car and over to Corie's, I would have gone over there to see if I could swipe one of cousin's pain pills for his shoulder. But I knew I'd never make it. Besides, I wasn't sure if anyone would be up at that time. (turns out she was up then)
Last time my back was out really bad and I could barely walk, I laid on brother's floor (it's concrete with a little padding and carpet) for about an hour or so and when I got up I was all better. So I decided to try that. But it was really awkward for some reason. I laid there for a bit, but I still couldn't breathe, so I got up. I had only laid there for about 15-20 minutes. I went to the bathroom and, I swear, I had a headache that could kill a buffalo. My head felt like it was going to explode. And the tiny bit of light streaming in his wondows made my eyes feel like they were going to explode as well. SO I tried going back to bed. I discovered that laying on my stomach helped ease the pain a bit, so I finally fell asleep again. About 11:30 I was woken up by the phone. (thanks a bunch, Corie.)
Still in some pain, but it's bearable at least. I think I might brave the walk to the car later to go get some Ibuprofin or Aleve from Corie. For now, I'm just going to try not to strain myself too much. Might take a little nap after I make and eat lunch.
Onto the randomness:
YAY! HBO orders up season two of Big Love
And on a related Big Love
note, if you go to the Big Love site
, you can read Margene's blog. Great stuff.
Why do I spend so much money (that I can't really afford to spend anyway) on food when I know I don't need to buy it? The last two times I've gone to Aldi I've spent $10 on food. Now, it may not seem like much, but at Aldi and for one person, that's a LOT. I swear, it's like a sickness. I go in there knowing exactly what I want, but instead get about 10 additional things and I always end up with so much stuff. It's crazy. One of these days I'll learn to control myself there.
Having said that...I'm about ready to head back today to get some cookies or something. I need cookies and they have some good ones. And of course, since Paul never has milk here, I'm gonna have to buy some milk too. Well...there goes the rest of my money. *sigh*
Does anyone out there happen to have a cap of the opening of Big Love
when they're all twirling away on the ice when it's cracking, or know where I can find one? I was looking yesterday, but haven't found anything. I want to make a Big Love
icon and that's my favorite little bit of the opening. Maybe even just a good pic of Bill and the wives. I found a couple of those, but they're not so great for my uses.
And now for a few quizzes that have popped up all over my F-list over the past week:( Quizzes ho! (Or is that: 'Quizzes. Ho.'? ^_^) )
Well...I think that's about it for now. If I think of anything else, I'll come back. And now, I'm off to make me some shrimp stir fry. Mmmmm....
(It took me an hour and a half to write this entry?!? Where DOES
the time go?)ETA:
How do you get a header at the top of your journal? I saw somwhere how to do it, but now I've lost the entry. Not sure if I'm going to do it, but I'd like to see how it looks.
