Friday Frivalities

Yesterday morning was wonderfully cool, but that didn’t last. It did not feel as hot as it has been, but I think after a great morning, it felt worse than it was in the evening than it actually was. So I didn’t stay out in it. Interestingly enough, this allowed me to be inside to get a phone call from Sean, who is in town this weekend. It is a last minute kind of thing which brought him here, but we might get together Sunday afternoon, if things work out.

In the morning I went to see the X-Files movie, which I felt was a disappointment. I also thought it had an anti-Catholic sentiment; not just having a former priest/pedophile as one of the characters, but also by having a subplot with Scully working in a Catholic hospital, controlled by a priest which is acting in opposition to her. It is not just any kind of opposition, but on her use of a new therapy based upon stem cell research (they didn’t say which kind of stem cells, so in theory it could fine, if the right kind of stem cells; but the movie, by keeping it vague, is clearly mocking Catholic opposition to embryonic stem cell research). The movie was slow and could have been cut down to a normal forty minute episode for all that was in it; which was ok, as plots go, but nothing too X-Fileish.

Finally, my left eye is now irritated; started in the morning soon before I went to see the movie. I don’t know why. I got some eyedrops yesterday afternoon, and they make it feel slightly better, but it still is acting up this morning.

Still Irritated

While it is better, my eye is still feeling irritation and I am using my eye drops to help give it some relief. When I wake up, though, there is no crusting over the eye, which should be a good sign it isn’t something like pink-eye. But there is still enough irritation that it is annoying when I am trying to read or write.

It’s another warm day after last week’s chills. The roller-coaster ride we have had with the temperature continues this week. If last week is any indication, I expect we will be below freezing by the end of the week.
