Death Note: The Live Action version/Two night showing

Spent $22 for two tickets to see Death Note in the theatres last night. It was terrible.

I walked out 25 minutes into it. I have only EVER walked out of 2 movies before: "Saving Private Ryan" and now this one.

Now, I went to see it in theatres when I was in Japan and enjoyed it, and I own the DVD... so WHY was it so terrible this go-around?

1) FU*KING anime schoolgirls can't shut their FU*KING mouths while the movie was going on
2) The movie was dubbed into English
3) The movie was POORLY dubbed into English
4) The movie was poorly dubbed into English by the people who dub the voices (and ruined) the tv anime version of the story.
5) Someone brought a FU*KING BABY into the theatre.

I don't know if I can go to a movie theatre again. This happens every time. EVERY time and it has gotten old real fast.

So looks like I'm going to have to wait and see Batman, Prince Caspian, Harry Potter 6, and everything else when they come out on DVD because I DAMN sure well NOT going to go to a theatre and wait from that jackass behind me to shut up talking, for the morons in front of me to turn off (and close) their cell phones, and for that gawd-daym woman to take her FU*KING CHILD out of the theatre.

My sincere apologies to my friend Dale whom went with me and was very calm during the whole thing and elected to stay to see it out. I apologize profusely.

Happy Mother's Day

Mah mamma came down from Denver today and we talked a LOT about computers and how she DESPERATELY needs one.

We went to and found a pretty good laptop that JUUUUST might be in her price range.

We are now going to go to Famous Daves for lunch. I really hope my poor tummy does well. Ant-acids anyone?

My recent hospitalization

All the doctors could determine so far was that my having taken so many anti-biotics for the various sicknesses I have had caused the good bacteria in my body to start dying off (anti-biotics kill bacteria good and bad it seems).

So Saturday I got stomach cramps after going to a "pirate themed restaurant" with friends (damn you pirates!!!). The next day at about 2:00pm I got harder cramps and started having ... ummm... troubles "back there". Then I started throwing up. Then I kept on doing both until 9:00pm until I had nothing left to exit my body.

So Jen took me to Memorial hospital where we waited 2 hours in the emergency room (should be called the "eff-you we'll get to you when we bloody well want to room") and then another 45 minutes until they got an I.V. in me.

Then they start with the tests, a C.A.T. scan, and more tests. I got admitted to a real hospital bed about 5:00am. Jen and I were so tired. I finally started feeling better at 2:00pm the next day and then REALLY better at 4:30pm. They finally released me at 6:30pm.

I still have diarrhea but it's nowhere near as bad as it was (exiting every 10 minutes).

Some things I learned:

* When taking anti-biotics for illnesses, take them with yogurt. The good cultures will help keep your tummy from taking too bad a hit from the anti-biotics.

* When visiting the emergency room, people will ask you "what is wrong". Faint at the desk or really exaggerate your problem. They may admit you quicker, but it might (might) help if you had an un-attached limb. This will not be a problem because you will be asked "what is wrong" by 10 more nurses and doctors who cannot read charts and you can give them real answers then.

* Or, have the ambulance come get you. It seems that people who arrive via ambulance get "special privalleges" even if it's not severe. Heart attack? Ambulance. Disemboweled? Ambulance. Splinter? Ambulance. (That last one... not even fuc*ing kidding you. The kid got in AFTER me via ambulance and was admitted BEFORE me for a fuc*ing splinter!)

* The nurses do everything. EVERYTHING.

*The doctors do nothing but come into the room and say "Hello, I'm a doctor... AH! And I see you have the machine that goes 'ping'!"

* Order room service two hours before you're hungry because that's how long it will take to get INTO your room after the cafeteria people deliver it outside the door and the nurses give a damn enough to bring it in.

* In fact, make plans that anything that happens will happen 2 hours after you request it. Stool collection, food delivery, more blankets, pain medication, pillows...

* Or, you can try to go to sleep. They swarm upon you like locusts if you try to go to sleep.

* Don't ask the nurses for anything... they will ignore you if you ask for too much.

* Don't go to Memorial Hospital. Ever. EVER! EV-FUC*ING-ER
