opus

Last week
I was home sick with my painful mystery illness
(Which by the way - I'm still waiting for the lyme test results
but I feel 99% better!!)

I was on the couch
in pain

I slept most of the day..

But at one point I woke up
and I'm lying there - lifeless
staring at the tv

the remote was on the table
but I felt like such shit
- I didn't even have the energy to get up
I think it was on HBO

And you know what was on tv?
You know what shitty movie I had to endure?


"Mr. Holland's Opus"

yeah... I know

















Like I wasn't being tortured enough
with my painful mystery illness.. NOW THIS!

for a hour and a half... I suffered on

My cable bill is immense- and this is the kind of movie they play??
THEY SHOULD BE PAYING ME!!!!


THEN My husband comes home from work and says

"Uhhhh, what is this shit you're watching?"

Me: "I'm not really watching it - it's just on"

Tim: grabs the remote - hits the menu to see the name of it
"UHH!!, MR. HOLLAND'S OPUS??
THAT'S WHAT YOU'RE WATCHING?!?"

Me: "I'm not really watching it - it's just on"

Tim: "You' ll watch anything"

Me: "I'm not fucking watching it
by choice!!
Do you think I honestly wanted to
watch Mr. Holland's Fucking Opus
Nooo I didn't - So shut the hell up!!!"


Tim: "No, you shut up"

Me: "No, YOU shut up"

Tim: "No, you shut up"

Me: "Honey, can you get me a snapple out of the fridge"

Tim: "Yes"

Me: "Love you"

Tim: "uh huh.."


the end

I'm glad you are feeling better!
They're running a Kubrick season over here. It could have been a toss up between the Shining and 2001...
