In addition to the back owie, I've now got some kind of gutrot, probably from the painkillers. Jeez.
I've also had a very weird scam, at least I think it was a scam. I was trying to stream FRANKENSTEIN CHRONICLES. and ended up having a long phone exchange with people from 'Supremo', about how I had to instal their product for 300 quid, or my hard drive would die immediately. Hackers were in my bank account even as we spoke, etc. I finally hung up on them, but it was quite unnerving.
Bloody sticky and warm again, and it's expected to be worse over the weekend. Got stuck having to help R Next Door with one of her pigeon rescues, despite my own agonies. Oh well, I don't like pigeons, but I don't want 'em to suffer, either. This was another victim of wire wound round the legs. The local vet untangles them for free.
I don' know if that lemon verbena tea is actually helping my pain, but it's pleasant-tasting, and quite soothing.

Woke up in the night and had to take more painkillers. In the morning, I could still barely get out of the bed. Bah. The nice girl in Coffee Lovers gave me spme lemon verbena to make 'anti-inflammatory' tea with, so I'll have a go later.
Still following RELLIK, which is OK, but I don't see the point of the time-travel stuff, really, except to make it even  more confusing, and LIAR, which IMO is just plain stupid.
R Next Door commented on my walking being 'even clumsier than usual'. Well that's what happens when you bust your bum, dammit.
RADIO TIMES arrived late, again. I really get grumpy when I don't get it on Tuesday.

Didn't exercise this morning, as my shoulder is now acting up, along with my back...Christ! It's getting rather warm and sticky, too.
I was afraid I'd just sleep all day, so I crawled to the Picture House, and saw BLADE RUNNER 2049. I liked it, although I found it a bit baffling at times (Dementia fear-) It was certainly impressive to behold. The score was quite spooky. thoughout; rather unnerving.Yes, it was very long, but I didn't find it boring. Sad, though.
I'm continuing to get into ST: DISCOVERY, too.

I've never been especially into Basquiat, but that documentary on BBC2 last week really got to me. He was only 27, I think, when he OD, and already a big artistic name. What directions would he have taken if he'd lived? * Sigh *
The TV, thank the gods, seems to be going again, after I faffed around with it a bit. I've no idea what I've done, but it seems to have been the right thing, touch wood.
R next Door isn't exactly 'not speaking', but obviously wants to be left alone.
My back is still hurting a lot, but maybe just a little less, thanks to too many painkillers.

TV Disaster...

It's not working! What the hell is this? Unbearable disaster, etc.
R Next Door has returned, but all ultra-mental, because her best friend A's ancient dawg, Royston died on Friday. Very sad, he was a nice old boy, but she always does this whole blame thing. He was old, after all. and had been going downhill for a while. Lula, amazingly, is still with us.
Rubbish Nordic spooky-drama finally finished Saturday. That was silly. Of course, I watched it all, hoping it would get better.
I also watched some AGE OF KINGS DVDs, before the conkout. It really was very good. Shows its age, sometimes, with wrinkly tights, wobbly walls, etc, but mostly holds up very well, with good performances, some from actors who later became famous; Sean Connery as Hotspur, Eileen Atkins as Shakespeare's baddie Joan of Arc, Robert Hardy as Henry V, etc.

More Pills...

Well, I managed to get a doctor's appointment.  He never looked at, or touched my back, of course, but he gave me Tramadol, which at least is a bit more effective than Co-Codamol, and it doesn't make me nauseouds and dopey. He said that if I'd genuinely cracked something, I wouldn' be able to walk at all. even staggering on my trolley. So, at least I've made the effort, and it reassured me a little.
Just as well I've put off booking for a city break, if I'm going to be like this for fecking weeks.
Did a fair bit of walking/creeping, anyway, and ran into a couple of neighbours, so at least, with the doctor, I actually spoke to a few people.
Yow, I saw an EASTENDERS spoiler that said 'Ben Mitchell' is leaving. He's one of my favourite characters. Bah.
