Slowly Getting Back

I'm back at home, mending slowly, feeling quite useless since I can't move my neck, eat solid food or lift anything heavier than five pounds for the next month. The worst is hopefully over, and now it's just rest and recovery. Thanks to everyone who sent over well wishes, and a special thanks to my wonderful family and ever patient wife who have made the last few days far more comfortable than they've had any right to be (especially my wife who concocted the recipe for the perfect fruit smoothie). My sister had the foresight to get me a trial membership to NetFlix for my birthday, and if you don't think that sucker is going to be abused you're crazy. First up: 3:10 to Yuma and American Gangster. After that I think I'll check out the first seasons of Lost and Heroes. Plus I bought a few books before the surgery:

JOKER by Brian Azzarello and Lee Bermejo (awesome graphic novel about the Joker's release from Arkham Asylum, and how he tears Gotham apart to reclaim his territory)

Any suggestions for movies/books/tv shows/music I should check out while laid up?

Oh, that recovery period after surgery. Know it well since I had two this year.

Can't help with the movies considering I went through a chick flick--which you probably wouldn't enjoy--then science fiction marathon... we really need better science fiction movies. ;)

Take care!

Tombstone is a very good western.
Murder by Death is a oldie but goodie. Kolchak: The night strangler. The changling -with George C. Scott. Columbo.

Alan Alda's new book "Things I overheard while talking to myself"

Stephen King - Duma Key (and the shining is always a good read)

Laughing might be good. We really laughed at Tropic Thunder last summer. It's out on DVD now. Also Forgetting Sarah Marshall.
Hope you feel back to normal soon.

Just read Kate Atkinson's When Will There Be Good News? Fantastic stuff. Highly recommend it.

I ditto Patti's recommendation of Tropic Thunder. Hysterical.
