On the road to recovery! :)

I don’t know how long I’ve been talking about it but it seems like health is been on a record low this year.

Yesterday, I took a half day off from work for both a dentist appointment and to finally have my eye appointment with the opthamologist to figure out how to fix whatever is on my eyelid.  Good news is that I have no cavities! YAY!

Second bit is also good news which comes in a bit of a painful bad news shell is that the fix for my eyelid bump was a mini operation.  *trembles* That how I felt when the doctor told me that and then had me go outside to pay my $100 fee for it and wait for my turn.  Before this operation, my previous form of surgery was in the form of taking out wisdom teeth 2 times before.  I forced myself to tough it out but I’m telling you, seeing a huge needle going  into your gums is a million times less scary than seeing that same size needle going into your eyelid and then feeling it kind of go numb.  The whole process was just immensely painful even with whatever pain numbing agent that was in the needle. The result: its gone! YAY*2!

Plus, I got to experience a half hour of being like a one-eyed pirate! Something like this:

Bad news was I had to take the rest of the day off because as much as I thought that anesthesia was not working during the process, when it start evacuating from my little incision, it hurt so much! Still, I’m on the right track and on the road to recovery as I’m typing this up between trying to not blink or emote as that causes some pain.

Moving on!

I’ve been taking it easy on watching movies and turned my attention to catching up on TV series.  This week’s mission which I managed to finish up was these two!

True Blood Season 6

True Blood Season 6

True Blood was alright. It wasn’t a bad season but it didn’t rise up way too much.  I don’t know how many of you have seen it but well, I wasn’t too fond of the beginning but sometime in the middle it started getting better and the finale seems to hint at a decent final season (I believe).

Hemlock Grove

On the other hand, Hemlock Grove is really weird. I can’t emphasize how confused I felt during the whole show.  I give you this: it had the most disgusting yet pretty impressive werewolf transformation I’ve ever seen.  This one took a really long time to get to understand the deal with everyone and it seems messed up relationships rule this wonderful town.  I actually think the guy that plays Dr. Pryce to be the most intriguing out of everyone.  Bill Skarsgaard has this funky accent that he seems to need to control when he gets nervous and I wonder if thats deliberate.  For me, it really starts picking up at episode 5 and gets more and more gripping till the end.  I’ll be there for Season 2 🙂

Thinking about today, I wondered if my boyfriend had actually felt that I’d need flowers some point because he bought me a nice pot of calla lilies last weekend as a nice little surprise.

It was comforting to see them today after coming home from all that. 🙂

I’m going to end on that note and promise you that tonight (in hopes my eye should be in less pain) I’ll be able to think straight and get that movie review done! In the face of all this, I know I can get it done…after all, I managed to do my workout challenge day last night.  Can I do this?

Movie reviews will resume regularly soon 🙂

Plus, if anything, things will be fully back on track in October.  I have at least 15-20 movies for horror marathon lined up! What do you say? 15 or 20? In insomnia’s face, I say BRING IT ON! 🙂

Happy Thursday everyone! 🙂

  1. Hemlock Grove… I’ve tried to finish that several times and can’t make it to the end… it’s not that I don’t like it or anything it’s just that I get too – bored maybe? It’s real good but then again it’s…. too long? I don’t know… I LOVE the little / big sister : )

  2. Wishing you a speedy recovery! There’s nothing worse than eye problems to make you feel anxious (terrified!). Agreed with the latest season of TB, I was pretty disappointed with it. And Hemlock Grove was just downright bizarre. I watched it through to the end but I really don’t know why because I’m pretty sure I didn’t like it… I think.

    • Thanks 🙂
      I also wonder if its because I watched really awesome series like Dollhouse and Under the Dome before this so TB and Hemlock Grove felt so blah. “downright bizarre” is how I felt about Hemlock Grove. There was a lot of scratching my head and “huh? what?” going on..then I just started doing other stuff at the same time. I’m still not completely sure if I like it or not.

      • Definitely I think watching something of a quality standard before watching something that won’t quite live up to it makes a huge difference. That said, TB had a very disappointing season, and I’m happy enough to hear that next season will be its last. As for Hemlock Grove, yes! It was such an odd experience. I thought to myself on multiple occasions, why am I still watching this? This is awful. But something kept pulling me back in to finish the season. Bizarre.

  3. OMG. The thought of anything pointy going near my eyes is a constant fear, I don’t know how you did that!!! There’s this point in Guillermo del Torro’s “Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark” movie where this person is looking through a keyhole….and a sharp needle comes at the eye….!!! Scariest part of the movie! Hope you feel better, that’s such a sensitive area!

    I was really hoping this season of True Blood would be better, but looking back, I hope that ever since Season 1. It showed some promise, especially with Bill igniting himself on fire when he thought he was a god XD Oh well….at least it’s ending soon.

    • I didn`t really have a choice 😉 Thats how I did it, I guess…
      Don`t Be Afraid of the Dark? Gotta look that up 🙂

      True Blood Season 1 was good, then 2nd was the worse and I think this one was just really weird and not so much going on. Seaons 3-5 was the most enjoyable to me. Lets hope they can at least give everyone a good final season…
