Tomorrow, I'm taking the train to NYC to visit my Infectious Disease doctor. I haven't seen her in person in a couple of years (we keep in touch by phone and e-mail). She's a CFS expert and is one of the newest members of the CFSAC, so I'm interested to hear her perspective on all the retrovirus research.
I was still sick through most of the weekend, so I wasn't able to stay up late enough to watch any movies with Ken after the kids went to bed - instead, we're still watching episodes of Mad Men and The Mentalist on DVD - we've really grown to like The Mentalist a lot! We did watch a couple of movies with the kids:
- Craig had a sleepover Friday night, so I chose a movie I thought Jamie would enjoy - Surrogates, a sci fi thriller. It's about a future world where no one leaves their homes - everyone has these life-like androids called Surrogates that they control from virtual reality chairs in their house. Because of this, crime is almost non-existent, but when someone starts killing people through their Surrogates, a police officer (played by Bruce Willis) has to leave his "Surry" behind and step out on his own. An enjoyable movie if you like sci fi action flicks.
- Saturday evening, we watched a classic with the kids, The Sting, which won an Academy Award for Best Picture in 1973. They enjoyed it very much - it's fun to see such a young Robert Redford and Paul Newman. (Craig said, "Paul Newman - isn't he the salad dressing guy? I didn't know he acted." Talk about a generation gap!)
