Day 250

I am 17 weeks into the movie challenge.   Today marked day 116. 
I did yet another extra post along with the movie of the day.   It's becoming a trend.   And I'm getting to the point where I'm hunting down movies and other stuff to do with movies just for the challenge. 

Do we really care about Rock and Cena at Wrestlemaina?   Didn't think so.  Was watching Smackdown and there were two matches this week, everything else was crap from the fan weekend.   Two stupid uninteresting matches.  Lame.

Day 249

Well, it's a Friday.

Yes, the movie de jour is up.  Day 115.   Yesterday, I did the movie and a bonus post as well.  That's a few this week, starting to become a trend.

I've been reading a bit this week.  Mostly vampire novels.  Which if you'd like, you can check out the first round of on my current vampire blog here
And I say current because I have an older one as well from a few years back.  It was one of those instances where I tried to give it up but got pulled back in.  Vampires make me happy, I've told you all this before.

Today marks the five week point since I broke my knee.  I whined about it over on my main blog this morning.

I can say without a shadow of a doubt, the two things I am looking forward to once I'm up and mobile again are getting back to my own apartment {once I'm good enough to manage stairs}  and cooking for myself again. {once I no longer need crutches}
I've been feeling just blah the last while and it's got some to do with the food.   My mother, is a salt fiend!  I am not.  I almost never use salt unless a recipe calls for it.   I've had more toast then I want to think about because mom hates to cook.  The rest of the time, pizza.  I've eaten more pizza this winter then I think I have in the last four years.

Just a quick note to say the movie de jour is up.  Day 113. 
And an extra short post as well on there.

Someone made a comment to me yesterday about having not called my movie blog something to do with popcorn or movies.  I had to tell them that 1) everything was taken title wise and 2) I already had that blog started for something else that fell thru so why waste a blog?

Day 247

So yeah, the movie de jour has been up for hours. Day 112

Here's my question... what's the point of doing something online if there is no audience for it? 
Or at lest, when you're not too sure you're actually reaching people?   

It's on my mind today because, as I said a few posts back, I've been thinking a lot lately about returning to the wrestling reviews.  Only, I'm not sure it's worth my energy. 
In the beginning, it was the one thing that seemed to be what drew people to my writing, but since I stopped not one reader has asked why.   Granted, I'm still getting hundreds of hits a week to my main blog looking for stuff to do with certain wrestlers, but that's mostly trash views. 
People looking for gossip like who posed naked or who's involved with who. Stuff I just don't handle. 
The rest just want to see photos of their hair. 

So I'm feeling very... I don't even know what I'm feeling.  Part of it is the fact that when I started doing the reviews, there wasn't anyone else doing things the way I was.  Now, there are hundreds.  Many of which devote their entire free life and working life to it and are ten times better then I was at it.  I know this because they are the ones who landed the interviews and the press passes and etc.

So I guess besides asking what's the point of doing something online if there is no apparent audience, would be how do you reach your dreams/goals if you have no idea if that's still where you should be?

Day 246

The movie de jour is up. Day 111

So what I am seeing in the blogger help forums, is that the .ca  is causing some issues across Blogger. Depending on what your web browser is you might be getting a warning page listing .ca  blogs as malice.
This information sent many of us in a panic the last few days. Ends up, it's just another one of the many issues since Blogger switched over to the country specific urls.

Day 245

Posted the movie de jour about an hour ago.  Day 110

Quiet morning so far. Might just be because it's a Sunday?  As you can see, I'm struggling the last week or so to have something to talk about. 
It's the whole being stuck inside with a broken leg issue.  Doesn't leave room for an active life to chat about. But this boring cabin fever part should only last another two weeks. Three tops.  Then I'll be active with therapy.
Which should introduce a whole new idea of hell.

Day 244

Okay, so the movie de jour was up this morning. Day 107

Happy 38th birthday to me.

Was at the doctor's today about my leg.  Had x-rays, and they changed the bandages as well.  Everything was looking good and he wants me to upgrade my brace.  The kind I have now -since the night of the accident- is a soft foam brace.  The doctor wants me to get the next step - no pun intended- which is a brace where it has locks on the sides for gradual movement.
And it's going to cost me a fortune.

Well, now supper and cake.

Tuesday, March 20, 2012


The movie de jour is up. Day 105.  And I did a bonus round.  It's one of my movie article posts.  Which seemed much better when I was working on it.  Now that it's actually posted and I've read it a few times, it feels unfinished.
This is why I like quiet. I tend to not give my best work when there is noise to distract me and it's been busy around the building this morning.  Dogs barking across the hall, construction right outside the living room window. 

Anyways, point being that I posted the movie for the day and an extra bit.

day 242

Today's movie is sort of blah. But it's been up since this morning for those who wait here before checking. Day 104

Nothing special happened today at all. Really, what can considering I'm stuck on my mother's sofa with my leg still in a brace.  Will be too for at lest another three weeks.
Speaking of which, I go in this Thursday to the Fracture Clinic for the next doctor's appointment and x-rays.

Thursday's my birthday.  Yay me.  You know, every year I hope to have nice weather on my birthday so that I can go out and wear something pretty and not have to wear large clunky winter boots.  The first time in my life that the city where I live is having lovely nice weather on the week of my birthday and I've got a broken leg.  How ironic is that?

Day 241

yes, the movie de jour has been posted for hours. Day 102

I hate having to put a  .ca  at the end of my links now. Totally sucks.  Everyone who reads me knows I'm Canadian.  And yes there are still a ton of issues since Blogger changed all the country end tags. Bunch of things that just are not working.

Anyway, my anger aside,  I've been thinking about going back to doing the wrestling reviews.  Been thinking about it for a while now.  But I suppose, the fact that I'm still thinking about it and not really doing says something.  
I did do a short one few weeks ago.  Just I miss doing it. Only it takes so much out of me.  To do one proper anyway takes like 4 hours.

Oh hey, it's St. Patrick's Day.

Day 240

Yes, there was a movie de jour today. Day 101

It's been one of those days.  And to top it all off, blog issues. 

There are a few planets right now that are in retrograde causing havoc to communications, electronics, traffic and a few other things. 
Short post right now.  Just checking in

Day 239

The movie de jour is up. Day 100.  And a bonus post, just a top 5.

I had hoped to have some sort of really cool project for day 100 on there, but since the broken leg, I had nothing.  So I thought I'd just throw in an extra Top 5 for the week. 
I know I was trying to keep it to one list of top 5's per month, but again with being unable to get around to do the projects I had to rethink my plan.

Which is in a way a good thing.  One thing I have to say about having an injury, it makes you start to think outside the box on certain things.  Not that I'm saying doing an extra top five list on a blog is thinking outside the box but... okay I'm babbling.

Day 238

The movie de jour is up. Day 99

99 days into this movie challenge. Wow! That's almost 15 weeks. (Saturday marks the 15 week) I'm doing good.
The extra stuff for it I wanted to do has taken a back seat since my knee injury, but that's okay, just gives me something to schedule for October and the last half of the year.  In the mean time, I'll just add more top 5 lists and maybe start doing profiles of actors or something to fill in the other stuff.

And my knee... at lest the pain pills are helping me sleep. There has been less and less insomnia the last few weeks. But the spasms are horrible.

day 237

The movie de jour is up. Day 97

Why is it the older you get the harder it is to make friends?  I'm talking real friends, not just acquaintances, but real friends? 
At lest it's increasingly harder for me.  I don't think I've made any real friends in about ten years.  Just sort of gathered a few groups of people here and there.
I have one friend left in my life that I went to high school with and even that friendship seems to be dwindling. 20 years this year actually and it's starting to feel like we've maybe out grown each other.

Is it because as we get older we either get totally set in our ways and stubborn or is it because  we find ourselves freer to say and do what we really want which unnerves some people?
Whatever the reason, I find myself feeling like I'm back in kindergarten on the first day trying to make one friend.

Day 236

Posted the movie de jour, day 95

Been a very quiet few days.  And then mom had to babysit.  I'm not happy.  And I really hate kids shows. Sitting here now, stuck on the sofa while my 5 year old cousin watches Treehouse three feet from me.
I think I mentioned in my last post that I have another appointment with the doctor in two weeks. He said this next two weeks are the most important.  Make sure nothing shifts while the healing is still happening.

this sucks, not going to sugar coat it. At lest, I've gone down from perks to just tylenol.

Was trying to write a blog post/article on vampires but my cousin was looking over my shoulder leaning on me asking what I was typing.
Normally she doesn't like being in the same room with me, which is fine with me. 

Thursday, March 8, 2012


I posted the movie this morning.  Day 93

Okay, I just finished blogging about the visit to the doctor's over on my main blog, for those who don't read that one... it went well.  X-rays looked good, had the stitches removed, and was told to come back in in two weeks for the next appointment.
And I talked about the crappy part of the day too over on the main blog.  Since this is the drama free zone, I'll leave it at that.

Hope everyone is having a good Thursday.

Day 234

The movie de jour was posted few hours ago, Day 90
And I did another Top 5 list...

Did anyone else catch that new series  GCB  last night?   I wasn't too sure that it would be any good, but it was not horrible.  One of those it's so stupid it's funny shows.   Do I think it will make it past one season... no.
I think it's too one dimensional. 

Sunday, March 4, 2012


I did mange to post the movie de jour this morning.  Day 89

Working on a few ideas for the "intermission" posts I have been doing here and there since I started.  Less of the physical projects for the next few months and more of the article styled ones. At lest until my leg gets better enough for me to use it. 

short post today

Day 232

movie de jour is up. Day 88

At the moment, it's increasingly difficult to get online.  As I can not sit at my mother's computer because of my leg, I had them pick up my own laptop.  Which is not picking up the net properly.  I know there is suppose to be a way to go from computer to computer but honestly, I have the sinking feeling I screwed that part up and might be just surfing.  That would politely suck.

My good leg- my left leg that is- has swollen to the size of a football. And I still have not managed to find a way to wash my hair.  Raise your hand if you hate the whole process of sponge baths.

So I just had a bit of a rant over on the main blog.  Needed that rant.  I don't know how people can be sweet all the time?  I know I have been trying to be less aggressive and less drama but, I think I'm more Aries then even I ever thought.  Still a lot of fight left in me.

Day 231

Did the movie de jour this morning. Day 87

So last week, I bought this journal, on the morning I shattered my knee.  I just now got my mom to bring me my shopping bag of stuff from last week.  Finally went through the journal and it's not what I was thinking it was meant to be.
Thought it was a blank journal, but it's all questions and quotes. That's what you get when you can't flip through something because of the plastic wrapper.

Will be needing to most likely get wrist braces before my first six weeks are up.  Arms are already swelling from the crutches.

Day 230

The movie is up for today.  Day 86

Not much to say, all I can think is my hair hasn't been washed since the accident last Friday.  Weird what you think about when you're not in the best of health eh?

that and my arms are killing me from the crutches.
