BMT Day 43: Sleeping, Not Sleeping, TV Recommendations.

I slept well last night, but woke up not feeling well this morning.  After breakfast, I fell back asleep.  But I had no such success in the afternoon after lunch.  It felt like a very long afternoon.  

At some point, I got out and took a short walk with my mom and our dog,  Ferris Bueller (the dog).  I’m supposed to be doing some walking every day.  It was hot out.  Heat and BMT go about as well together as heat and chemo; which is to say not very well. 

Here is my recommendation of the day: we just finished watching both available on demand seasons of “Silicon Valley.”  It’s on HBO and will surely have many more seasons.  We blew through it fast. You don’t need to know anything about computers to enjoy it.  It was created by Mike Judge, who’s created such fan favorites as “Office Space” and “King of The Hill.”

Tonight, we watched the premiere of USA’s “Mr. Robot” on demand.  I liked it a lot and am excited to see more.   The pilot opens up all kinds of questions, like, “Is any of this really happening?” and,”I I know I must have seen Christian Slater in something recently but I can’t remember what it was!”  I don’t expect these or any questions to be answered clearly for a long time. 

I have more recommendations but I’m very tired, so I’m going to try this sleep thing again.  

Good night,

Sounds like another day impressively well lived despite not feeling well. I’m supposed to walk every day too for my respiratory health and it’s not always easy but knowing that you pushed through today despite the much more challenging process of BMT recovery I will throw any and all future excuses (I sometimes come up with some admittedly pretty lame excuses) straight out the window. I will have to check out Silicon Valley sometime soon. Thanks for the recommendation and thanks for writing another great blog post.

Re – Twitter…oops, read and misinterpreted blog tagline as a request for, not an offering of, good tv.

That said, you mentioned Slater here, not this one, but I’ll just leave this here anyways..

Day by day you are progressing! Thanks for the endorsement of Mr. Robot – I’ll check it out. I highly recommend Orange is the New Black and Orphan Black.
