My Hospital Stay (Under the Cut for Those Who Don't Want to Know)

Monday morning.

Still feeling somewhat under the weather. As noted in yesterday's early evening journal entry, I ran the Sunday game of the Primeval RPG on the group, and had a relatively good day with my abdomen and bowels. I watched a bit of tv after my liquid supper, and seem to have slept a good night's sleep (for a change).

I decided this morning that I wasn't going in to work, and called in to let them know and try to work from home today, still sticking for a while more to the liquid diet. We'll see how the plan goes.

After much thought, I've decided not to do a full post about my hospital stay on Friday night/Saturday morning as noted in this entry. I'll just offer some tidbits here as follows.

That about sums things up on the hospital visit front. I feel stressed and upset just thinking about it. So, 'nuff said.

Happy Birthday, Lucy Brown!

Today is another birthday for one of my favourite tv show's stars.

Happy Birthday, Lucy Brown!

Today is actress Lucy Brown's birthday. A truly lovely and gifted actress, Lucy Brown played Claudia Brown in Series One, and then Jenny Lewis in Series Two and Three of the Primeval tv series.

Here's wishing Lucy Brown a very Happy Birthday, and a terrific year ahead!

Space: 1999 to Return in Re-imagined Show?

Just poking around in the various news media for science fiction stuff, and came across this.

ITV Studios America and HDFilms are in the works to re-make Space: 1999, the iconic(?) series that featured Martin Landau and Barbara Bain. Imaginatively called Space: 2099, it is going to be a "contemporary re-imagining" of the show. I really do hope that some updated version of the Eagles. Anyway, here's the story from The Register.
