I actually took three Advil and went back to bed after making my blog post this morning. I couldn’t concentrate, and I knew I couldn’t get into any housework, so I figured I’d try to rest and relax and see if it would get better. It did, seemingly; I mean, I can move without wanting to cry, but I still tend to make “Aaah!” and “Ugh!” and “Grah!” noises. Having sex with knee pain is no picnic, I can tell you.
I got up from my nap at around 3:30 or so, struggled out of bed, and got dressed. I fully intended to limp down to the car and drag up at least some of the soda, when it abruptly occurred to me that the soda is in Sean‘s car, which at the time was with him at the fort. Well! So I didn’t do that, but I did put the dishes away and mess around online, and then at 5 I asked Sean if he was hungry, and since he was I went ahead and started on dinner (crab alfredo with salad and garlic bread–my home-made [read: buttered, garlic salted regular store-bought wheat bread] garlic bread is pretty good).
He came home and took the garbage out (two bags sitting in the kitchen since yesterday! O_O!), and then we sat down and ate at the dinner table. It was the first time we’d done that in awhile; usually I just bring his food to him at the computer. We chatted and flirted and ate, then cleaned up and settled in at our computers for about 15 minutes, and then ran off to the bedroom. Knee pain be damned!
Bellsouth is having weird DNS issues, so Sean started messing with the settings when we got back online. This meant that I couldn’t surf the web (I’d been reading the archives of PartiallyClips, a webcomic I discovered through Sluggy), and downloading pictures from Prince of Tennis.com), chat, or download anime…my only reasons for using the computer. So I went to the living room and cracked open Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
As Kevin knows (since I keep telling him), I used to have that movie memorized. I could watch it in my head, seeing everything play out in real time. So watching it again was kind of neat. I hadn’t seen it in years, so it wasn’t completely fresh, but at the same time I anticipated every line, every sound effect. Some sound effects were too quiet on my TV to hear, so I turned up the volume to correct the experience. Rather bizarre.
What was nice was that the DVD worked on my DVD player. A lot of the newer DVDs don’t. Another nice thing is that the DVD is double-sided, containing both pan-and-scan and widescreen versions. If you are a true friend, you know which one I chose. ;)
Sean has hopefully worked out the issue with Bellsouth, so presumably our service will be back to normal within a day or so. That would be good. In the meantime, at least I can surf and post and stuff.
Still have a lot of 2go-Box work to get done…ugh.
