Being sick has changed my perspective on life. I feel my mortality. My world has contracted. I'm having a hard time being interested in anything outside of my skin. I don't give a damn about politics, global warming, dead penguins, gas prices, burst bubbles, the-utter-stupidity-of-using-corn-to-produce-ethanol, or the mold in my bathtub.
I do have a renewed appreciation for Hubby, though. He has been tender, solicitous and caring through the whole episode. I'm feeling better, just thinking about how fortunate I am.
NEW SUBJECT: The Dark Knight... Have any of you seen it yet? They would have to pay me all the receipts from opening night to make me watch it. Life is grim enough, without being transported into a terrifying, violent, creepy place like Gotham City.
I'd rather laugh than cry. Maybe I could rent an old "Laurel and Hardy" movie...

Madam Z said...

Monty! That just goes to show how out of it I am! I never even thought of the "hot man in a bat suit" part of it. I'll fight you for him!

DCup said...

Oh, baby! Feel better. I'm glad you're getting TLC from the hubby. And I would rather watch something funny anytime.

Or British costume dramas.

Oooh, 'The Dark Knight' is so good. What's so wrong with "creepy?"

Every year my kids age I can see death looking over my shoulder waiting to take me. Kids are here to replace us, as the joke goes.

I want to see the new Batman movie, but I'll wait until the hype dies down and go to a matinee. The only problem with seeing a movie that has been out for a while is that you risk having to watch a scratchy print of the film. :o(

(Yes, I am that film geeky...)

Lyme disease sucks. I hope you are well on the way to mending. Not yet seen the Dark Night, but may squeeze him in between firemen.

Madam Z said...

dcup: Thanks, hon. I'm making progress.

creepy: So sorry! That was a typo! I meant to say, "cheepy," the sound that bats make when they fly around your head at night.

grant: Yeah, but your grandkids will be there to replace them.

dr. Z: Batman at a matinee?!? Surely you jest. It must be seen in the dead of night.

fingers: The poor little penguins had seen the Batman movie and tried to fly like their hero.


distributercap: I feel the good cheer! The Marx Bros. helped. Thank you!

divajood: "Not yet seen the Dark Night, but may squeeze him in between firemen."

Yowza! That sounds so deliciously naughty! I feel better already!
