I’m OK.  I got VERY lucky & survived cancer.  Now all of this exercise I do is to try to survive surviving cancer.  Do I want to be in a wheelchair forever?  No.  Only I can fix that.  Everyone’s support & help is greatly appreciated!  I can’t just say to someone “Hey, would you take over my exercises today?”  When I was in a coma, or just not with it at all.  I would dream that I could just pass everything over to Kim for a day or 2.  How wrong was I?!?!  I’m sure if I had asked & it was possible she would have one so in a heartbeat.  Unfortunately that’s not how things work.  I still question a few things about my cancer such as “Why was it me?” & “Was God testing me, or was the Devil trying to kill me?”  I’m pretty sure both of those questions will remain unanswered for a very long time.

I did my exercises & burned off some of the thanksgiving supper.  I really didn’t want to do them, but I could hear my exercise mat judging me a few feet away.

I burn the candle from both ends.  My exercises Monday–Friday seem to be taking longer, which means after I finish one of these I do stuff around the house, then hit the couch closer to 4:00 pm.  Kim & I have supper, then watch TV like it’s going “out of style”.  I watched a marathon of TV Monday night.   Next week there’s another ½ hour sitcom, then the week after that I’ll check out another ½ hour sitcom.  Monday nights are packed with TV shows.  I had to just stop preordering music from iTunes as well.  It seems like the calendar flipped to October & everybody got together & said “Hey, let’s pack all of the TV shows into Monday & a butt load of music releases in before the end of the year”

It feels like sensory overload right now!  These are the shows I record/try to watch on a Monday.  Every evening Kim & I watch “Ellen” as soon as Kim walks through the door, I’ll watch “Jimmy Fallon” & “Conan” the next day if I have time or save them for later on in the week.

 

“Kevin can wait”

“The Big Bang Theory”

“Supergirl”

“Scorpion”

“Gotham”

And coming up……………..

“The Odd Couple”

“Man with a Plan”

I wish everything was spread out evenly over the course of the week.  It’s almost stressful Monday nights.  We record “Dancing with the Stars” for Kim as well.  Thank goodness every week day isn’t like this.

 

Come November 18th I’ll have to stop buying music.  I have “Highly Suspect” on preorder & no more preorders from here on out.  Kim said stop so I will.  No Metallica or Bruno Mars until Kim gives me the OK.  I’m assuming there will be more releases but I’ll listen to them on our Apple Music account aka Satellite Radio x 1000 along with Metallica & Bruno Mars.  I’m terrible with money.

 

I know for sure that “Into Eternity” has recorded an album.  They also signed with a different label which could be holding back the release since they finished it in the summer of 2015.

 

Metallica & Bruno Mars, & whatever else is released, I’ll have to wait for despite a November 18th release date.

There’s a Podcast inside this link with singer Vicky from “The Agonist”.  I did find some time to listen to part of the newest album on Monday.

I’m not American or political at all, but I’m worried that Trump has made it this far.  I don’t care what the polls say, this election is still a “50/50” race.

No, I’m good.  Why are there so many “reboots”/”remakes” of movies from the past.  I’m not going to like a remake if I didn’t like the story 30 years?  I saw the remake of “The Jungle Book”.  I didn’t like the cartoon movie as a kid & I did not enjoy the live remake of the same story I didn’t like as a child.  Now they’re doing a remake of “Aladdin”?  Don’t screw it up, actually do what you want with it, I’ll watch the Disney cartoon from the 1990s.

“Badmotorfinger” is my go to Soundgarden album!

 

I guess the Toronto Blue Jays move on to Cleveland for a best of 7 games series against the Indians.  I hope Charlie Sheen isn’t pitching for them?

I’ve been waiting to hear if Scorpion would get a 2nd season. I really like this show!
http://www.cbs.com/shows/scorpion/news/1003658/

I don’t like the idea of doing things the old way in that I don’t want to wait outside, in line for tickets to a show, why? If I wasn’t in a wheelchair I’d have terrible seats to see Foo Fighters in Calgary. Calgary is roughly an 8 hour drive away from Regina. I wouldn’t drive 8 hours to get tickets for a concert 9 months in advance, even to see my favourite band, FF. Why would I spend 16 hours in a car to get tickets in a certain spot at a venue for a show at the same venue I’ll be traveling to in 9 months. All just to hear a few songs from each album. Everyone wants a full length album for free but a concert/advertisement for the album costs around $100, gas & accommodation’s for two. They aren’t going to play every single song from every single album? So why should I get the full album for free then pay however many hundreds of dollars to drive somewhere to see a “commercial” for the full length album? If I don’t know which songs they’re going to play, why do I have to pay through the nose to hear a snippet of each album when I’ve got the full album here? Just seems backwards to me?
