As the pain patches kicked in, so my sleeping kicked up (like 18 hour a day for a couple days). For the last day or two, my exhausted system struggled with being able to keep up with using my diaphragm to breathe.
So that is: Two days found collapsed on bathroom floor, passed out. Two days using ambi-bag for more than 20 minutes to give my diaphragm a rest and ensure I am able to breathe. And two days I have lost eyesight from exhaustion.
Due to the long delay of DVD releases here in North America, I had pre-ordered and have been watching some UK DVD series releases. I kick myself for missing the week that ‘The Killing’ was ‘only’ 30 pounds ($48) as it sells for $95+ here in North America, and the BBC has not lowered the price since.
However, The Shadow Line, a seven part thriller, brilliant in building and execution has a police officer with a bullet in his head. He has to stuggle as he has forgotten HOW it got there, his life left with being told the case is closed, not knowing how it is tied to the execution of a drug lord or even if he was shot being a dirty cop or a good cop? Did he ‘Walk the Line’, or did he walk ‘the Shadow Line?’Plus it has one of the creepiest, genuis, lethal villians of all time: Gatehouse. Personally, I cried seeing in full brutal BBC writing the display of rapid onset dementia, as shown in the wife of a side character. It is the best acting of dementia I have seen and both Linda and myself recognized all of the looks, the actions, the talks, the good times and the despair.
Right now I am starting Silent Treatment, a forensic show, but selling off the other DVD’s on ebay including Shadow Line (which went out of print right away, listing as available in three months), with free US shipping, all are Region 2 and 4. Also includes The Sins with Pete Postlewaite playing a wheel man out of prison trying to go straight, and how his wife, children, partners and friends all want him not to, and all have secrets which he has to learn, incorporate into the relationship and grow from. An amazing series, just released. That and five other series from BBC, and other TV series as released are HERE .All are top series, and sometimes my brain can handle a show with a laugh track or odd incongruincies and other times I need the best actors and brilliant writing like in Luther Series 2 or Judge John Deed.
I am going to try and go to the county fair. Last trip on the Coho, Cheryl saw TWO GREY WHALES, and I have been living in envy ever since. So I will try to go on the Coho (and see many more whales!) and see the State fair in Port Angeles. I think that it would be fun to go on the swings (you know that ride with lots of swings rotating out as it spins you around at 25+ mph). Linda thinks since I pass out so much it is a bad idea. I think that my slumped body ping ponging around the ride, a potential body slam danger is just the kind of kooky excitement that ride could use (will she hit me? Ride and find out!). Plus they have a petting area for animals.
