Oh bloggers, let me share my humiliation and pain. So on Friday I was in the middle of doing my workout routine (Kettleworx, which I heart big time) and at some point, in the mix of getting up from the floor, I tweaked a nerve. Now. I would love to give dagger looks to the workout, but this is where evidence one of my humiliation comes into play – it wasn’t a workout move. Nope. I just got up wrong. (Secretly D is probably thrilled as she has been calling me “old lady”). I took a hot shower, sat in a proper chair for dinner, and decided to call it a night. Well…after laying in bed watching some tele, I tried to get up only to realize there was no way in hell that was gonna happen. Seriously, I was flopped on the bed, belly down, in this painful huff. This was when D realized that there was a serious issue. I never have crocodile tears. So, off to the Mini ER we went: tear-stained, disheveled clothes because I had difficulty dressing, unbrushed hair. Normal ER visit. Enter humiliating factor number dos. My doctor ended up being a college buddy that I used to hang out with “back in the day” and hadn’t seen in fifteen years. Yup. Who know. So he’s trying to catch up (what I imagine would have been chit chat about sundries had we not known each other) and I’m miserable in this awkward situation. Seriously. It just felt weird having someone treat you and be all doctorly about your weight and blood pressure and medications and can you do this or can you do that when you HUNG OUT as a kid.
Now I’m medicated. And immobile. And bored. But hazy-bored. So I’m not really doing much reading. Just watching lots of shows. (Speaking of which, Get Him To The Greek…FREAKIN’ HYSTERICAL).
Prior to *the incident* I did manage to post a couple of reviews and musings this past week. Yay for that.
- The Girl in the Garden by Kamala Nair - this is a deb and it's set in India.
- Matchless by Gregory Maguire - I was a couple of seasons off in reading this retelling...
- Is Bad Publicity Still Good Publicity - personal musings about bad pub in the book world.
This week, I finished
- Dracula In Love by Karen Essex
- Matchless by Gregory Maguire
- The Twisted Thread by Charlotte Bacon
This up and coming week, I plan on reading
Although that I know definitely is I’ll be finishing, I’m too foggy to predict anything further.
