A Case of the Mondays

Except that it's Tuesday. And in 20 minutes it'll be Wednesday. So I guess it's really just a case of the blahs. Today was a rough day... I was futzing around and dozed off and forgot to take my 4pm dose of percocet so I sort of screwed up my schedule. I can take the stuff every six hours, and once I take a dose it takes an hour and 15 minutes to kick in, so I've been trying to plan it so that it kicks in around the time that normal people go to sleep (you know, like, at night). I've been keeping odd hours lately and am trying to get back on track. So the rest of the afternoon/evening was kind of a wash, and now I'm feeling bitchy. My brain hurts.

My apologies for the lack of fun in this entry and the last one (seriously? I wrote about knitting?) - I'm trying to come up with some ways to add a little more oomph to the blog. I do, in fact, want to give you guys something entertaining to read. As one of you said today, you want some "hot blooded excitement." So I'll see what I can do.

To make up for the lack of excitement today, I'll direct you to a place that delivers far more salacious stories than I. Courtesy of a very dear friend: http://idontlikeyouinthatway.com/

In that same vein, I direct you to this article. I'll admit that I'm half-fascinated by how difficult Beyonce was reputed to be during the filming of Dreamgirls. (Did anybody else notice how she felt the need to remind everybody of how many Grammys she has?) Half of me is intrigued by this, but frankly the other half of me doesn't care at all. Because, seriously, I am dying to see this movie. I've already decided that it will be the first place I go once the first six weeks of my recovery are over and I'm allowed out of the house again. I've always loved the theatre and have been watching musicals with my mom since I was little. I can't wait to see this. For those of you out there who also love theatre, this is a gem. It's a clip from the 1982 Tony Awards of the original Broadway cast of Dreamgirls, with Jennifer Holliday giving an unbelievable performance of "And I Am Telling You I Am Not Going." She played Effie White, who is played by Jennifer Hudson in the movie. Let's just say that Jennifer Holliday was more than deserving of the Tony she took home that night. In my next life I want to come back as someone who can sing.
