Overdue Library Books

  • Greg Iles: The Footprints of God : A Novel

    Greg Iles: The Footprints of God : A Novel
    Just started but already addicted. I've read most of the other books by this author and I've never been dissapointed. My favorite so far has been "Black Cross."

  • J.R.R. Tolkien: The Return of the King (The Lord of the Rings, Part 3)

    J.R.R. Tolkien: The Return of the King (The Lord of the Rings, Part 3)
    Reading it before seeing it on the big screen. I read the first two last year and loved them.

  • Wally Lamb: I Know This Much Is True

    Wally Lamb: I Know This Much Is True
    This is a book that is so deep and intense, there's no way to barrel through it. I've found it a bit of a roller coaster ride. I was hooked in the first chapter and then spent then next 6 chapters convincing myself to keep reading. I'm really glad I did. By the end of the book I felt I knew the characters personally. The author does an excellent job of drawing you into the story. I highly recommend it. It's very long, ~900 pages, but well worth it. (*****)

Popcorn with Genuine Imitation Butter

  • Just Married (2003)
    I went into this movie with low expectations. I was pleasantly surprised. It's mostly slapstick/situation comedy but was quite amusing. Ted and I both enjoyed it. (7/10)
  • High Noon (1952)
    If you haven't seen it - rent it! Although I did feel like my parents... "Isn't that so and so? Is he still alive? Wasn't he in...?" Great drama and suspense. 9/10
  • Bend It Like Beckham (2002)
    Great movie for the whole family. Erin and Teddy both enjoyed it and they usually only like cartoons. It's also a great way to learn about another culture - the kids had a lot of questions about the Indian culture after seeing this movie. (8/10)

On the Tube

  • American Chopper
    Yes, they're dysfunctional - but they make such cool choppers!
  • The Apprentice
    I accidentally watched the first episode. Now I'm hooked. Damn these reality shows.
  • ER
    This is the only show I watch religiously.

Man, could navigating the health care system be any more difficult? I'd be interested in hearing if the Neurontin worked, and shame on that doc for not telling you to start slowly.
It's possible he doesn't know, but if you have time, perhaps you could give him a call and let him know what you found out.

They don't know everything :-) (Although some would never admit it!)
As for the orthopedic surgeon, keep calling until they give you an appt. Maybe they went home after lunch on Friday and they'll call today, but don't let too many days go by without trying again if they don't.

There is no one in the world who cares more about your body than you! Good luck!


Oh, and I'll just go ahead and thank you in advance for putting the "The Qui-lted Qui-cker Pi-cker Up-per! Boun-ty!" in my head for what will probably last h o u r s. :P


hahaha I was singing that jingle all day yesterday. :)

That's true about telling the doctor about the Neurontin. I will do that. I think he just didn't know - even the pain doctor admitted he didn't know before prescribing it for himself.

I'll let you know how it works. The doctor increased the Oxy but I decided not to do that. I've been on the Neurontin for 4 days and without changing the Oxy, I am having better pain relief. I hope it works so I can stop the Oxy.
