Risin’ up, back on the street.

Posted: January 13, 2009 in Family, Journal, TV

I can appreciate this more now that I’m completely obsessed with the show (though it was hysterical even before I knew who the character was). Watched all but four episodes of season one over the weekend, which is one of the reasons why I wasn’t around here.

Well, that, and I had shockingly little of interest to say. When that happens, I prefer not to torture you, my gentle snowflakes.

(You’re welcome for getting that song stuck in your head, by the way.)


So, my sister is doing okay. She was in surgery for four hours last Thursday, which concerned me. During my own gallbladder removal extravaganza, it only took about an hour total. I guess her gallbladder was inflamed and had lesions and all sorts of nastiness. Plus they did a bit of poking around, “while they were in there,” to make sure nothing else was going south. They didn’t find anything else, though, so that’s good. But she had to stay an extra day in the hospital because her pain was so high she couldn’t move. She’s back home now, ensconced on the couch, getting waited upon by her husband and children.


I was lazy enough this weekend that I didn’t change my tagline or link pimp. And now it’s Tuesday so it seems a little silly to change it now. I guess you’re stuck for the nonce. Try not to get too upset.


Um. Yeah. Seems I’ve still got nuthin’. Must be something going ’round. Since one intrepid reader was concerned enough at my silence to send me an, “Are you okay?” e-mail, I just thought I’d let you all know I’m still alive. No drama. Nuthin’ doin’. Just, uh, yeah. Same ol’ same ol. I seem to be rather short on writing topics right now, so I’ll have to put some thought into it. Get away from the “what’s going on right now” theme and dig a little deeper into my brraaaaaaiiinnnnns. Something heavier. More philisophical. Perhaps seeped in BS.

You know, that sort of thing.

    Lack of interesting topic has NEVER stopped me from writing, as you may have noticed – haha! I don’t even care! I write because I can and that is a beautiful thing.
    It’s the January blahs – I swear, it’s affecting all of us. I wrote about that the other day – another thrilling post.
    I don’t know what that show is, but that shit was too funny and I think that guy needs to be my new TV boyfriend. Except Friday Night Lights is coming back this week and that means my real TV boyfriend will be back – Tim Riggins. I am old enough to be his mother, yet I covet him.
    See how I am babbling now?
    I’ll stop.

    I’d noticed the quiet from your quarter, but I figured I’d give it until Friday before I sent a “uh…hellew?” email.

    Bah. Seasonal Blog Doldrum Disorder. It’s goin’ around. I saw a map of it on the Weather Channel yesterday, seems like it’s “sporadic” or “widespread” over pretty much the entire 48.

  3. Laura says:

    Kim – I actually have NO topics right now (or none that pop into mind), interesting or otherwise. And the show is “Supernatural” – Jen got me Season 1 for Christmas. And today I borrowed Season 2 off of her – and we went to my house at lunch at watched the first episode. I have an obsession, let me show you it.

    TB – YOU apparently have no such Doldrum Disorder. 😀 My wordy, wordy friend.

  4. AmyD says:

    I know what you mean, I’ve been having a tough time coming up with post topics myself. It stinks!

  5. dyskinesia says:

    No concept of the show either, but that was superawesome. So much so that I forgive you for putting the frickin’ song in my head.

    As for the TB, God help him, my husband could write a 40-page essay on belching. 😀 (Honey, that was neither idea nor challenge.)

    Sometimes “Meh” is good for the soul; weird, but ultimately good.

    I ❤ that clip

    I, too, had an longer than expected surgery and they kept me in the hospital longer too. They wanted to keep me even longer but I threatened to escape and they knew I’d do it too since I had already figured out how to get those stupid things off my legs and back on so I could go potty without an escort shortly after my surgery. I kept telling them “MY FRIEND LAURA GOT TO GO HOME RIGHT AWAY!” and they were not having any of my nonsense. 😦

    I am not a good patient. Although my surgeon said I was a cute one. 😀

  8. Kim says:

    I’ve heard of the show – now you may have just succeeded in pushing me over the edge to watch it…and I DON’T HAVE TIME FOR NEW SHOWS, DAMMIT, THE DVR IS FULL ALREADY! But I could probably make time.
    And I forgot to say earlier – I too have been singing the damn song for the last six hours or more.

  9. Wow! A dreaded are-you-still-there email. Whew! I just figured the whole region is in state of eurphoria over the Cardinals.

  10. Megan says:

    Hmmm…yeah, I was kind of wondering but that last thing you said was how tired you are… I figured you were just sleeping…

  11. Laura says:

    Amy – Really? It doesn’t show!

    Dys – Now you KNOW he’s going to rise to that challenge!

    Jen – Yes, thanks for the linky! I heart Dean. Deeeeeaaaan. NOM.

    Heather – You are the most adorable patient on the PLANET.

    Kim – They’re on season 4 right now. I’m getting caught up via DVD. You can also get current episodes from iTunes. Or rent past seasons fron Netflix. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS SHOW. It’s like Buffy, but with boys. The writing and dialogue remind me a lot of Joss’ work.

    MTAE – I’m trepidatious, to tell the truth. I have a hard time believing that they’re going to make it to the big game. Calvin thinks I’m reverse-cursing them, by NOT believing. I keep that up, and they’re sure to win!

    Megan – Some, yes, but mostly obsessing over Supernatural.

  12. Kim says:

    I heard that damn song on the radio this morning.
    What are the odds?

  13. Taoist Biker says:

    Oh, I have the doldrums, they just don’t shut me up. They make me bitch about how I’m in the doldrums. 🙂

  14. Laura says:

    Kim – Pretty good, if you were listening to the All 80’s All The Time station. Pretty random, if you were listening to NPR. 😀

    TB – And that is the essential purpose of a blog!
