I went to the emergency room!
|With some help from my mom I also picked back up cross stitch!|
That was a week ago yesterday, and I've been on my couch ever since.
In that time I have caught up on The Walking Dead, Legend of Korra, Supernatural, Criminal Minds, several movies on Netflix, a bit of Arrow and a lot of Grey's Anatomy, as well as played Sims 3, Civilization 5, and Rogue Legacy.
And I can't wait for this to end.
See, here's my thing: I use video games, movies and TV as an escape from the stresses of everyday life, but whenever my everyday life is REDUCED to video games, movies and TV I start to wonder about my status as a true geek. I just can't stand having the only thing I accomplished in a day be that my Sim wife took a Sim vacation. I need to be part of the world, even if it is the occasional trip to the mall or even the bank, just so I feel like I'm part of a real society that doesn't exist solely behind a screen.
|One trip to the Lego Store later...|
It's like in Star Trek. You can't appreciate the brilliant maneuver that finally beats the Romulan Warbird (Next Gen fan, they were always chasing the Romulans) unless you watch the ship get torn apart and crew members falling down next to exploding panels.
I know I shouldn't complain. I remember when my mother had her gallbladder assassinated she had to go back to work three days later, and that was on her feet! People do have it worse than sitting around watching Netflix and inhaling groceries, but as a geek I just wanted to take a moment and look at this little event.
Less complaining and more awesome next week!
Also, have you seen Mormon Geek's Pintrest board? This is what I've also been doing!
