More of the Same...

Well, did the quarterly kidney check up thing the other day…the good news is that my blood reports came back all good…the bad news is that to get blood for said reporting, it was amateur hour in the blood taking department. Three pokes to get four measly vials of blood. Oh well, I can take it. It’s nowhere near as bad as dialysis needling on a bad arm night, and I’ve had plenty of those. The docs said to keep doing what I’m doing, so I guess I’m finally doing something right.

Did manage to see Sin City twice on the weekend. Once alone (see my review), and once with a Sin City newbie, who seemed to actually like most of it, but not all of it. I even liked it better the second time I watched it. It was certainly my most looked forward to movie of the year, ahead of Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy (which looks to be the laugh riot of the year), Batman Begins, and Serenity. I’ve also seen some trailers for The Interpreter, which looks like a good thriller, and The Island, which looks like a good sci-fi flick on the way. Still, I think Sin City beats them all, but that’s just the fan in me talking.

Elsewhere, there are rumors flying over the net that Brosnan may be back as Bond in the next film – a gritty remake of Casino Royale. Now, if the talked about rumor of having Tarantino direct it would turn out to be true, that would be a cool movie to see. Not very likely tho…

Well, back to reality here, I guess…gotta try to get through another work day while fighting off another flu that’s making my head feel like its in a vise. Nothing like going to a hospital to get sick…later
