The Day After Yesterday

1. As far as I know, my doctor's appointment went well yesterday. Certainly the whole anaesthesia thing turned out to be not a big deal at all; the anaesthesiologist knew I was nervous, told me that he'd knock me out when the doctor came in... and when the doctor finally came in, I saw the anaesthesiologist stand up and fiddle with my IV... then I smelled something... then I woke up and it was over. As I stumbled out of the room, I saw the doctor at his desk... I asked him how it went... he said "You're fine"... and that was it. I'm going to assume that his reluctance to tell me anything specific is because I probably wouldn't have remembered anything anyway... because I don't remember the conversation I had with the nurse as I was putting my clothes back on (Kath told me about it later, as we ate lunch... I asked if I could eat solid food again... then if I could drink... then if I could smoke pot... then I apparently asked about crack and heroin. I'm assuming I was trying to be funny). I will be calling them today to find out what I should be doing next.

2. We rented "The Day After Tomorrow" and "The Incredibles" when we got home. I didn't want to see TDAT, because for some reason I thought I would get scared. Silly me. It wasn't until we started the movie that I remembered that I haven't been scared by a big-budget Hollywood blockbuster since I was 9 and hid under my dad's jacket during Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. Anyway, it was pretty goddamned stupid, especially the part with the wolves. This is a DISASTER MOVIE, where massive climate change is killing MILLIONS OF PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD... why am I suddenly supposed to get nervous about a pack of the most obviously computer-generated wolves I've ever seen? Ugh. However, The Incredibles was, well, um... what's the word I'm looking for... awesome? Fantastic? Wonderful? Can't think of it. ("I think it was called The Bus That Couldn't Slow Down.") I'll be buying that DVD immediately.

3. Downloaded the new Sam Prekop; it's... definitely a Sam Prekop record. Kinda underwhelming, although the first song is fucking great. Sam, if you're out there, it might be time to start exploring some new vocal ideas.

4. There are too many awesome games that are about to come out. I'm going BANANAS.

5. Save Toby!

  • Farewell, LJ

    So I guess I'm retiring this blog. Part of me feels like I need to make some sort of eulogy or something; part of me just wants to move on already.…

    The first sentence of this post was "Finally, some breathing room," and then as I was in the middle of the second sentence I got handed…

    Kinda hard to imagine Thomas Pynchon (and not, say, Tom Robbins) writing this paragraph, but there it is on p. 99 of "Inherent Vice":…
