If you haven't seen/read The Time Traveler's Wife and plan to, do NOT keep reading.
Now, you may be asking yourself why this is not something you may want to watch prior to surgery? Well, the reason is if you have a husband like I do, the only thing he takes from the movie is that the time traveler dies and his wife has to go on living without him. Which, results in Binderclips immediately starting to imagine me not making it out of surgery and him having to live without me. It's kind of sweet, but just slightly overdramatic. LOL
Another thing not to watch - Monsters Inside Me on Animal Planet. It's a show about when humans fall prey to parasites - S.I.C.K. If you want to be paranoid about getting some kind of infection/parasite in the hospital, watch this show.
I'm sure there's more, however the 2 above made such a big impression that I can't remember the others.
Seriously, Binderclips and I will be standing in the kitchen and all of a sudden he will look like he wants to attack me. When I ask him "What? Why are you looking at me like that?", he says "If you die you're in big trouble." My response is usually to laugh, unless he's really having a bad day (and really imagining his life without me) - then I reassure him that I'm not going to die, then laugh.
Anyways, I thought I'd compile a list of things to watch prior to surgery also. Here it goes:
- Bethenny Getting Married - I can't get enough of this show for some reason
- Top Chef
- Work of Art
- Chopped - to some extent I feel like this is the type of challenge I'm presented with every night when I make dinner
- Extreme Marksman - the name says it all
- Fight Science - I feel I am destined to be on this show at some point because I'm so ninja-tastic
Oh, and one more very important thing: I RECEIVED MY FIRST BLOG AWARD!!! YAY!!
I was given this award by TB at Year31. Thanks TB!! TB's following is growing quickly and for good reason. I recommend checking her blog out when you get a chance. She is definitely deserving of the award.
In order to accept the award all I have to to do is write about my blog philosophy:
My philosophy is to write as often as I can about what makes me laugh, which, are usually things that happen between Binderclips and I. So, to sum up the philosophy - "If you can't laugh at yourself, life's gonna seem a whole lot longer than you like" from Garden State. Or "Live well, laugh often (very often), and love much" also sums it up.
I'd like to pass this award onto this most deserving blogger:
Bossy Betty's blog is everything I hope my blog will be someday; funny, informative, and interesting. Enjoy Bossy Betty, you deserve it!
Ok, surgery is Friday - wish me luck everyone. I'll try to get back to blogging as soon as I'm feeling up to it.
