I am a huge fan, I think he is just delightful. His boyish charm, and genuine joy when he is interviewing some of his favorite people is so fun to watch. I love that he plays games with his guests (water war with John Hamm is a particular favorite). He brings on musical acts that I may not have heard of, that I add to my playlist. I think the Roots are the perfect house band for him, and his sidekick Steve Higgins is HILARIOUS. Their spontaneous humor during the monologue brings giggles.
No, I don't stay up that late. Thank you, DVR, for taking care of me.
One regular bit that Jimmy has on his show is Pros and Cons. I am borrowing that today to lighten up my current health situation.
I have been in lots of pain since Friday. I can't do much other than switch positions on the bed, or the hide a bed. Sitting is mostly impossible. But there are always two sides to every situation:
PRO? I have read four books since Friday.
CON? Girls have to go to the bathroom sitting down.
PRO? Claude has LOVED spending so much time with me.
CON? I have been unable to be outside in this gorgeous weather.
PRO? I am nearly finished knitting a pair of socks I started in February.
CON? I have to rely on Mike or Charlie to do lots of things for me.
PRO? I can still do a lot of my regular job from my bed, with my laptop, so I am not too far behind.
CON? Well, the pain really isn't much fun.
PRO? My recent pedicure is holding up really well.
CON? I can't cook, garden, sew, or make jewelry.
PRO? I plan to catch up on my giant stacks of magazines.
So, I can't get in to see my new back doctor until June 18th. TWELVE days from now. They advised me to go to my primary care physician if I really couldn't wait until then. I now have an appointment with her tomorrow.
I will keep you posted....and I found out that the majority of the pictures from my surprise party post couldn't be seen, so I promise to fix that and re-post that, eventually....
Thanks to all of you who have wished me well!
