Most of this week was spent up in Arkansas, on a little mini-vacation. It was pretty nice until I found myself standing browsing the aisles of a small store in Ft. Smith on Friday. That was when I tripped because I was trying to avoid someone who, apparently unaware that there were other people standing behind him, nearly backed into me and I ended up straining my back as a result. BLEH! I know that I always say that getting sick or getting injured just means that you have more time to watch movies while you recover but you know what? That’s mostly wishful thinking on my part.
Anyway, I’m back home now! And my back hurts but I’m looking forward to watching a lot of movies while I recover! Speaking of movies, here’s what I watched this week:
