Movies to Kill One's Pain While Sick

While at home I couldn't do much - I just felt dizzy from the pain and the pills and often happend to stare at a book
for an hour then put it back on the shelf, taking another one that had the same destiny. The outcome being that I didn't read more
than 20 sentences from 4 different books.
But I was able to see some movies. One can stare at a movie, even without being able to follow the details.
Some things still make sense like: hey I've seen this character 10 minutes ago too - it has to be something about it :).

So what did I watch:
  • Snow White and the Huntsman - did I like it? I don't know, I liked the Step Mother

  • Some episodes of Suits - do I recommend it? I don't know, one can see few episodes to make an idea,
    I don't think it does make one addictive comparing to other series I've started seeing.

  • Islam - What the West Needs to Know - I do recommend this one, I'm not going to comment as it way above
    my powers for the moment, but I will say that it shaked us both me and my better half.
    You can find it fully on you tube

  • Aaaand last but not least Moonrise Kingdom - with 9.4 on rottentomatoes and 8.2 on imdb - I couldn't understand why,
    maybe I was in the dizzy phase, but the song I like and me sure you like 2. ENJOY!

Surgical Intervention

Since I have no inspiration what so ever, I'll just share the personal experience.
Two days ago I had my first Surgical Intervention ever. It was a dental one, a bone
augmentation. I was missing two teeth for more than 18 years now and the bone in that
area withdrew. This procedure is for a future dental implant.

I have no clue if it was a difficult operation, I guess it was - it lasted more than 1,5 hours. What I
know is that my doctor told me it happend pretty often that the intervention is
not successful, I felt like fainting couple of times during the surgery, I
didn't like the girl who assisted my doctor, I can't eat, I can't talk, it hearts
when I swallow, it hearts when I spit, today should be the worse day of
them all, then it get's better, my jaw grew huge. I will only find out in couple
of weeks if it's ok or not. If it's ok I have to wait for almost a year to
be able to start the dental implant (which will last 6 months), if it's not
ok, I wait for all this to heal and I start it all over again.

There have to be positive things otherwise I wouldn't have done it. Of course this is a
long term investment. In couple of years I should have better teeth and avoid the
consequences of missing some(although it didn't bother me at all the long term effects
existed)... that's the target. I trust my doctor, during the surgery I though he left
me with the other colleague of his and I panic a little, I opened my eyes and he was
there, every time I felt his body against my head I would get confortable and the
fainting feeling would disappear for a while.

I can only hope this will work out cause I am pretty sure I won't give it another try!

Targoviste City Break

It happens quite a lot to think that I would love to get out of Bucharest, without paying too much, without driving too far. After all these years I found a reasonable solution: Targoviste.
  • a nice quiet town
  • 80 km from Bucharest
  • there's Targoviste's Fortress and Chindia Tower
  • a pretty stylish cathedral in the Center of the Town
  • Dealu Monastery a restful place with plenty of roses, a picturesque view from the top of the hill to the town
  • the old city center which makes feel as being in Prague
  • people there seem terribly nice
Another great thing was that we paid 55 Lei for a meal at a restaurant in the old center. It was a very tasty meal and I couldn't finish what I ordered. Very good accommodation in the center can be found at 120 Lei per night. We didn't check if there's any cheaper than that, I believe it is.

Our experience was improved by our scope there. We were there to a wedding where I learnt four different types of traditional romanian dancing. People danced other two that I knew already and another one that was way too difficult.
We were lazy and unprepared so we didn't take any pictures, hence you have the honor of searching yourself, or even better make a city break to Targoviste!

I just noticed the last post was one week after I started the hormons treatment. I am not sure if it's really related or not but since I must continue the treatment all the rest my life I do not plan avoiding writing for that long. At least it seems that I was in a happy mood. That a good sign I guess. I'm not promising that I will constantly add new posts but I can promise I'll try.
Inspiration 0 - again I have no clue if it has anything to do with being less ill, maybe one has to be rather ailing to get some inspiration.
Not many follow the blog so people mostly know, but for those who don't: worry not. I am not dying. I just suffer of something similar to diabetes but it's not diabetes. Suffering is too much said, I am not suffering... anymore :). Just trying to skip embarrassing situations here.

I would have liked to see the original video, the one that used to be played on MTV(eeeh MTV, remember?) but I can't find it. This one's as good anyway.
