Pajama Weekend
I am quite a bit healthier today - yay! Although I still have a funky warble to my voice, it's not very noticible. I just sound a bit more "breathy" than normal. My throat is still sore, but I am much better. 'tis a good thing.

My "weekend in my jammies" helped a lot. I had almost no energy, so it was great to be able to just relax and not do anything. I slept a ton. It was weird: my body just sort of shut itself down of its own accord. There was little I could do about it. I would wake up, walk around, but as soon as I was horizontal I would start to fall asleep again. Very unusual for an insomniac like me! I'm glad I didn't have anything crucial I needed to do, so I could just let my body rest and heal itself.

I'd had a few household chores I'd hoped to accomplish, but aside from a couple loads of laundry I'm afraid I neglected them completely. Oh well. Hopefully this week I'll be a bit more productive.

I did get out of the house once before sunday night: saturday night I went with a few friends to see Return of the King finally. F and I were quite possibly the only people left on the planet who really wanted to see it but hadn't.

I was quite concerned about my ability to sit through a 3.5 hour movie. Being sick probably helped cut down my antsiness level though. The movie started at 8, so at about 5 I cut myself off from all food and beverages. I used the restroom right before the movie started, and it worked! I made it through the whole thing without leaving the theater once! After all, who needs hydration, when you've got hobbits?

Sunday afternoon I kept thinking I was on the verge of getting productive. I'm afraid I stayed on that verge (apparently also known as my couch), half asleep, all afternoon. Until suddenly it was 4:45 and time to get ready for skating. I took off my beloved comfy clothes and put on my skating uniform. The weekend was over, and it was time to be responsible again.

How many times did the movie fool you into thinking it was over?

Re:

Well I'd been warned that there would be several false endings, so I didn't get my hopes up until it actually said "The End". But after the first couple, I did start to wonder: will this movie never end??

The story was definitely in danger of sailing off to the land where stories never die...

Maybe your breathy voice will do good things for you like Phoebie on Friends who could sing sexy when she had a cold!

Lord of the Rings

I haven't seen it yet! I went to see the previous parts almost on the opening nights, and now I am behind of everyone (even my family in Moscow) on the final movie.

Re: Lord of the Rings

It's long, but it's good. I enjoyed it. You should definitely try to see it sometime.
