Storytime! Skip this part if you want to…or don’t it’s funny. Haha funny, not you know…funny-funny
You see friends, while I was at San Diego Comic Con last year, I had one goal. OK, two goals. The first was to infiltrate a website called That’s Normal by showing up at the happy hour and being extremely charming. #MissionAccomplished #Naturally. The second goal I had was to get into the Outlander autograph signing. So my friend Kelly and I woke up at 3am, got in line at 4am and started what would forever be known as THE WORST DAY EVER. We were in line and I was kneeling, so I went to stand up, that’s how I hurt my knee. I hurt my knee by standing up. I know, I know, it’s a real thing that happened. It hurt real bad BUT I had bigger more important Scottish fish to fry. So when we were moved into the convention center and told we had to sit cross legged for an hour, I looked down at my swollen right knee that was locked into an odd position and said: “Sam Heughan’s Magical Mystical Side Peen”, (a prayer in my group of friends), bent my knee and took the pain. It was all working beautifully friends, we were part of the first fifty in line! We were GUARANTEED those tickets. Then came the moment. They released us. We. Hauled. Ass. Remember, I didn’t know what was wrong with my knee, just that it hurt real, real bad. I thought worse case scenario, I maybe partially tore my meniscus or something. We got with a foot of the Random House booth, hands outstretched, mouths open – gaping, sucking in air and hope. And that’s when we were told: “That’s it we’re out!”. HOW COULD THIS BE?! I screamed in my head! Some people shouted it out, I was too winded to give voice to my disappointments, plus I believe in being nice no matter what. Long story short, security opened up another line at other end of the convention center and let people in that way. #Lame. We hung out at the Random House booth for awhile. I pretended to be interested in what I SWEAR I thought were free books (sorry about the unintentionally stolen books), mostly to see what we could find out, but really all we found out is that disappointed Outlander Fans that have been waiting in lines all morning are reeealllllll cranky.
On went my day. Bad thing after bad thing happened. When I got home and my knee was way worse I finally went to a doctor and found out, I didn’t tear my meniscus (yay!), I dislocated my knee cap (say what!?). That apparently is a thing that can happen and I am 100% blaming it on Sam Heughan and his magical mystical side peen. So here I am, prepping for surgery to screw this bitch of knee in place and get me going again because TOM HIDDLESTON is going to be at Philly Comic Con and I want to go there.
I have a problem
But I have a problem. It’s not just that I pray to Sam’s side peen either. Although, that can certainly be placed in the, “She has issues and here is the list we need to address during the intervention” column. For now, my very real problem is that I am currently only watching the same three shows. Judge Judy, Dr. Phil, and House. The only books I have cracked open in the last six months are coloring books and It Starts With Food, because Bekah made Whole30 sound so terrible I just HAVE to do it.
I need help
So basically, I told you all of that to tell you all this: I need your help. I am going to be home bound for three weeks. The only freedom I will have is when I get out of the house twice a week for physical therapy. Otherwise, I will be in bed staring at my puppy. She’s pretty cute, but she bites me a lot right now.
Tiny evil little puppy of cuteness and sharp teeth. This looks like a snuggle, but it’s really a head lock for my safety.
What should I binge watch? What should I binge read? I am so open to any suggestion! Let me tell you; I have direcTV, Netflix, Hulu, and HBOGo, and I have an apple box thingy #FirstWorldProblems. I know, all those possibilities and I am still watching Dr. House cut people down to size and waddle away. Reading options, I have a kindle and I am NOT afraid to use it! Amazon Prime and I are BFF’s. Let me know what your favorites series are right now. I will literally read or watch anything. Case in point, that one time I was so moved by Sharktopus vs. Whalewolf that I tweeted Casper Van Dien about it. AND HE TWEETED ME BACK!
And yes, I nerded out about Sharktopus tweeting me back too. #ProSharkPropaganda
So let me know what you’re watching, what you’re reading, and what you’re streaming. I’m down for literally anything. Romances, thrillers, self-helps (I needs a lot of helps), fiction, non-fiction, comedies, true-crime. Just please no cook books, I’ll be real angry from the whole30 and a cook book recommendation (unless whole30 approved) may push me overboard.
So what are your recommendations? Comment below!
