    Default Recovering from Surgery.

    I had sinus surgery yesterday. Fairly serious, but routine. Basically, being a seventeen year old, I'm recovering quickly.

    To a degree.

    I'm still bleeding out of my nose (I swear I'll never get all this junk out). I'm still swollen. I'm still fairly low on energy. So on and so forth. But the main thing is, I can't stay sitting up for too long, or the blood increases. So I need movie recommendations.

    Normally, I'd just ask for whatever's awesome. But, I can only watch for so long without getting a headache, so I need fairly short suggestions (max ~1.5 hours?). I rented four, and have exhausted them all since last night. The four were King Arthur, S.W.A.T., Harold and Kumar, and the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. S.W.A.T. was probably the best. So recommend me some more, please, or any other ideas for amusing myself while I drain the blood-ocean that is my nose.

    Short things are TV on DVD, I enjoy them way more than movies because I have such a short attention span and it increases the re-watch value.

    Sorry you had to have sinus surgery, I hear that's really nasty stuff. Did you try that saline solution wash before you went under? I heard that's being hailed the miracle cure for allergy issues and sinus infections.

    I've been doing saline stuff for years. It's not a terribly new thing.

    I saw Secretary a couple days ago and thought it was pretty entertaining. I don't know what kind of things you like but independent films are always good. Try it.

    And I hope you get well soon. I've never had a surgery before but I'm pretty sure that it is horrible.

    Thanks for all the warm sentiments, but I really am in what the doctors would call a miraculous recovery. I haven't had pain since a few hours after leaving the place.

    All seasons of The Man Show! you won't get bored until you've seen each episode about 25 times! Trust me, I know.
