Sneeze, Cough, Cough, Sneeze

I've been sick! A bad head cold, sinus congestion, cough, aches, and pains. That's about the whole of it. I missed a few days of work and managed to be unproductive the days I did show up. So it will be busy, busy, busy this week at work.

What I'm thankful for:

Kleenex Tissues with Lotion - My Nose is very thankful!

Vicks VapoRub Cream - I hate the smell of this stuff but it works!

Pillows - without them I couldn't have slept! These aren't mine but aren't they pretty?

And just when I needed a laugh my Netflex movie showed up! Season 6 Disc 1 of Wings. Funny, funny, funny.

It was a good weekend to be stuck at home on the couch sick. Besides Wings I also watched King Kong 3 times (well parts of it over three days) and three Star Wars movies!

King Kong is pretty good. I like Adrian Brody. He's quite funny in the movie. I don't care for Jack Black and his character in the movie is worth not liking. The end is sad and happy!

Also watched Star Wars - 3 episodes - A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi! They are favorites!

The Spike channel has been showing all the Star Wars movies over the last two weekends. So between last weekend and this past weekend, I've now watched the entire Star Wars saga from Episode 1 to Episode 6. This is the first time I've ever watched them in order. I enjoyed it very much. George Lucas did a pretty good job of putting all the episodes together. There are a few plot holes but so what. It's fun! Maybe someday I'll own them all on DVD. Sweetie, that's hint!

Any other Star Wars fans? Do you have a favorite? Mine will always be the original Star Wars. I saw this for the first time on July 4, 1977 with my brother and sister. I was 17 years old and had just graduated from high school. We drove one and half hours away from our hometown to see it because we couldn't wait any longer for it to come to our town! I'll never forget the first time the music started! It was just great! We ended up going to the same place a week later and seeing it again. We took my best friend along this time! We loved it! In all I guess I saw it 12 times during 1977. You'd go broke doing that now a days! It's a great memory! That was 30 years ago last summer!

Here's the original trailer from 1977 for Star Wars! enjoy!
