My aunt...  
...that I had spoken about in a previous post has lymphoma. :( If anyone is able to spare some good wishes for her, it would be greatly appreciated...

On a MUCH less serious, but still sucky note, I burst a blood vessel in my right eye last night. :P I scratched the surface of my eye trying to get at an eyelash and when I looked in the mirror I was horrified to see the whites of my eye completely welling up with blood. :( The bleeding was on the inside of my eye, and so my eye looks amazingly scary... In fact, I freaked out everyone at work who saw me. Thankfully aside from some pain and an awful headache from all the pressure (from all the blood that collected inside), I'm fine. It does look REALLY frightening, though...

This weekend I finished watching the entire first season of Six Feet Under... :) I just LOVE the show - not only is it touching and hilarious, but it's heartbreaking as well. At first I thought it was going to be morbid and strange being set in a mortuary, but it's really a beautiful story about a family who has been SO repressed for so many years - who are all finally learning to live life to its fullest. I thought it would be about death, but really it's about life and the difference between just being alive and REALLY living... And I LOVE David and Keith's friendship, and their love story... After watching them for a season, I wonder what it was about "Queer as Folk" that I thought was so realistic. I love David's inner conflict and his own inner homophobia and hate for himself... I love that Keith and David are Christians and how the teachings of the church impact the way they feel about themselves... SUCH wonderful stuff... I'm SOOO ready for Season 2. :)

On a theatre note, I've made arrangements to fly to LA during Memorial Day weekend - hopefully to see some great shows. As far as I know, the only thing I really want to see is "Jersey Boys" at the Ahmanson... I'm hoping there will be other shows that pop up for that weekend... I just couldn't pass up such a great airfare and the fact that I wouldn't need to take ANY days of vacation! :) If anyone knows of anything great playing around that time, please let me know! :)

Well, I'm off to examine my freakish eye and decide if it's scary enough to scare away all the branch managers at my meeting tomorrow. :P Then I'm off to hunt down some great David/Keith fan fiction (yes, what can I say, I'm addicted!) ;) Hope you're all having a nice week! :)

*Sending good thoughts to auntie* Hehe as for season watching that sounds as bad as me watching the first 3 and half of season 4 of ER in like 3-4 days... :) I like the cast, all of them. Yeah, I wish I could meet them cool people I'd bet. :)

Thank you so much, Mel!

I find that seasons of shows that I love (like Six Feet Under) never last as long as I'd like... When I'm finished with the dvd set, I'm always ready to start on the next season... But like Queer as Folk, sadly SFU only has five seasons as well... :(

I'm sorry to hear about your aunt, Sheri. :( I'll be thinking good thoughts for her and that she'll be okay.

I hope your eye gets better.. bursting blood vessels are the worst! :(

Take care, and have a nice week! *Hugs*

Thanks so much, Kristen. I'm glad they found out what was wrong and have started treatment - it's just sad that the poor woman has gone through so much already! :(

Thanks for the comments about my eye, it feels much better this morning - but still looks awful! :(

Hope you have a nice week too! HUGS!

Thanks so much, Laura! And my eye... it looks worse than it is. :P I think I freak people out when they see it - I hope it fades soon.

Joe burst a blood vessel in his eye when he sneezed one day. Yeah, it is a horrendous thing to have to see... but I am glad it's nothing more serious.

*Sending hugs and healing thoughts to you and to your aunt.*

It's SOOO freaky looking! :( Tomorrow I have to go to the Big Island and meet a bunch of branch managers and bankers - what a first impression to make, huh? :P But you're totally right - I'm thankful it wasn't more serious.

Thanks so much for your good thoughts!

I'm so sorry I'm just getting around to responding to this now, Sheri! I could have sworn that I had responded, but apparently I didn't! :(

I'm so sorry about your aunt...please know that both you and she are definitely in my thoughts. ♥

I'm sorry about your eye, too! I actually burst a blood vessel in one of my eyes not too long ago...I know exactly what you mean about how scary it looks! :)

And I'm so glad to hear you'll be seeing Jersey Boys in LA - it is such a truly terrific show! (When is Memorial Day? I always forget, because it's not a holiday here. :))
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on February 12th, 2007 04:29 pm (UTC)
Thanks SO MUCH for the good thoughts, Karen!! We're all very worried about her and the poor woman's already been through so much! :(

And thanks for your comments about my eye. It's a week later and it definitely looks MUCH better! It's still red and not fully healed, but at least I don't look like a complete freak (just a partial freak now) ;)

Memorial Day weekend is May 25th - 28th. :) I'm probably really going to need a theatre weekend then, so it comes at a perfect time! :)
