Greetings from the Cowlands!
Been back since Sunday. Been shitloads of fun walking around on crutches and trying to keep weight off my knee.
I decided to take today off. I was supposed to go back to work today but I talked with the Mangler and she said I could take off. May do so again tomorrow and just go back on Jan 2.
I still have no idea how I'll manage doing the physical labor parts of my job. I'll figure it out. There's always temp/intern/co-op slave labor I can use.
So did you get a lot of crap for Jesus' Birthday Day™?
I got spoons and other cooking utensils. The NalaMatka resupplied the House of Love IV™ with new bath towels.
I can thankfully say I got no robot crack.
Hell... I haven't even taken pictures of Dragstrip or Overkill for the site. As my lack of crack blogging no doubt indicates I'm so not caring about robots right now. Though I gotta admit there's a twitter in my nether regions for Animated Blurr.
I haven't gotten one iota done on sorting toys. I moved the boxes around to get at Christmas decoration shit pre-surgery but since I really can't stand or easily move/carry anything my thoughts of working on crack in the basement pretty much dried up.
However, a main resolution for 2009, no matter how futile, will be to deal with the Transformers once and for all!
Alas, that's got a bit lower priority than undoing 2008's weight gain and muscle loss from my year-long back problem and 5 month knee problem. *sigh* I gots so much shit to do there!
The only stuff I could say is really "fun" is stuff I bought for Giga and/or myself: the new 42" plasma TV.. the new 1080p upsampling DVD player, and a shitload of Doctor Who DVDS is pretty much it!
I added the following Who love to the House: New Who Series 2 and 3, Old Who "Invisible Enemy / K-9 and Company", Old Who "Brain of Morbius" New Who "Infinite Quest", and the awesomely goodness inducing 3-DVD old Who Beneath The Surface box set of "Doctor Who and The Silurians", "The Sea Devils", and "Warriors of The Deep".
I love the insanely James Bondish 3rd Doctor action of The Sea Devils so much!
In retrospect, since this became the most expensive Christmas I've ever spent, I should have thrown The Sarah Jane Adventures Series 1 in there too.
I should get a thank you note from the f'n US economy for what I spent this year. (And I actually despise the whole Christmas bullshit spending spree!)
What did you all get?
