Turned the corner

I'm happy to report that I now have rejoined the world of the living. I can tell it is going to take a while to get completely well but there certainly is a big improvement. Thank you for all your good wishes, I'm sure it helped. I took Roxie's suggestion and pretty much dosed with cough medicine all day too. I've slept a lot and done nothing when I am awake except watch television and knit.

Thanks to the magic of Netflix I've started watching Monk, which I never saw when it was on. It's quirky, intriguing and cheap entertainment. I've also been using the instant movie part of Netflix to watch Dead Like Me on my computer. I remember the buzz on the show when it aired but never saw it.

We finally watched Iron Man and I know understand the comments about Robert Downey Jr. you all made. I absolutely agree with whoever said that isn't fair for someone to look that good when they've done everything he has. Very fun movie!

I'm rereading the Charlaine Harris, Sookie Stackhouse books. Hubby and I have been watching True Blood and I needed to revisit the real Sookie. I haven't decided whether I really like the show or not. Anyone else watching? What is your reaction?

Sookie Stackhouse is one of my alltime favorite characters. If you can get ahold of one of the audio versions of the books, do it. (maybe the local library). The woman who reads them is wonderful and I don't think I want to hear anyone else pretend to be Sookie. I haven't seen True Blood (no television) but I'm waiting for them to make the Harper Connelley books into a movie. Charlaine Harris is wonderful.

I'd still do Robert Downey Jr, on the table, in the Cheerio's.

Glad you're on the mend.

I'm glad you're feeling better--I've seen the first one and I liked it. I think it's hard to recapture that dry delivery that makes the books so fun! (I love Monk:-)

And I guess since Knittech's doing Robert Downey Jr. on the table, I'll stop having fantasies about him. And cheerios too!
