The problem with being sick for so long, is that I’ve sunk down into a rather dull state. I do…not much. I have spent the past three weeks in various floppy states slumped onto various sitting implements. Sometimes coughing, sometimes not…most of the times coughing, actually. It’s a grind.
It’s probably my fault for prematurely announcing my impending recovery. I should learn to wait until after the fact before blogging anything of importance. My health took a turn for the worse this past week, to the point that I became concerned that the level of wheeziness coming from my lungs was most certainly not improving. Off to the doctor’s I went, and she sent me off to the hospital for tests. End result is that I’m on more new meds and my mom came back to stay with me this week to help out.
It’s not that all of my time has been thoroughly wasted. I did manage to read a large portion of my To Read pile, as well as finish all 74 of the Degrassi (Junior) High television episodes on Netflix. An important and useful way to spend my time, I assure you.
Degrassi (Junior) High was as good as I remembered it – even if the first season is 25 years old (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!). My only complaint – spoiler alert – is that I did not remember Wheels driving drunk and killing a two-year-old. What!? And Joey asked Caitlin to marry him only to spent the summer bonking Tessa. What!? And Tessa gets pregnant with Joey’s kid only to have an abortion, proving that like Erica and Spike before her, if you live on Degrassi Street and have sex outside of marriage you will get pregnant. Um? I did not remember this ending at all, and it kind of upset me that everything turned out sucky for most of the kids at Degrassi. I must have either missed the last few episodes, or blocked them from memory.
Tonight I’m browsing Netflix for a new television series to tackle when those middle-of-the-night coughs come to get me. I thought I’d re-watch all 100 million episodes of The X Files, but it turns out that sitting in the dark at 4am watching creepy alien abduction stories isn’t as enjoyable as watching Stephanie Kaye sneak into a never-ending series of horrifying tube tops and hot pink spandex pants on Degrassi Junior High. Any ideas which light – great acting not required – series I should start on now? I will pretty much watch whatever you tell me to so fill me in!
