Things that Go Boom!!
Well look at that. I'm a featured user. Since it's been awhile since I have written a journal, I guess I should now. So here's what I've been up to since my last journal.
The movies I've seen:
Terminator Salvation - Not so good. I was way off on my last journal.
Star Trek - Still awesome the second time.
Angles and Demons - Thought it was okay. I wonder if I had read the book before hand, if I would have felt the same way. I read the Da Vinci Code before I saw its movie, and thought the movie sucked.
Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian - I enjoyed it and the kids loved it, so it's a winner.
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen - I liked this movie and it was awesome watching it at the IMAX. But yes there were really stupid things in this movie. Plus there was needlessly inappropriate things said and done considering this movie is about toys, and thus aimed at kids. So if you hate it completely, I understand. But I like robot fighting.
Saturday I'll be seeing the new Harry Potter movie.
But none of these movies can hold a candle up to the best explosion of my summer, which happened on the 4th of July. No, not fireworks, although we lit up the sky quite well. No, I'm talking about the explosion of my right achilles tendon. I did this about an hour and a half before everyone showed up at our house for our cook out and firework extravaganza. I toughed it out that night and went to the minor emergency room the next day. Yesterday, I saw my orthopedic specialist and he confirmed what I already knew. Now I'm waiting to have a MRI on friday and my next appointment with my specialist on Wednesday to discuss surgery.
Best summer ever? Probably not.
