No Wisdom Teeth for Christmas

My boyfriend got his wisdom teeth out today. All four of them. They were coming out forward instead of upward so the procedure was a bit more difficult.  And they had fully grown in 3 years ago.

Before me he hadn’t even heard of wisdom teeth, I’m glad I was able to convince him to get them out, his teeth sadly on the bottom have already been crowded together and it’s too late to fix without braces.  Being a student, no one has the time or money for that.

An hour later the extraction was complete, and I met him in recovery.

Recovery was 2 and a half hours, 2 hours longer then everyone else.

He had excess bleeding and had to go back in and get more stitches on his left side, which was already feeling pain and swelling.

Because he was 2 hours over in recovery, he’s 2 hours behind and I don’t think he will be eating solids by tomorrow.

Care is time consuming. Advil every 3 hours, T3 every 4, anti-nausea 3x a day. Soft foods that aren’t hot. Sitting up straight AND today is laundry day. Poor thing.

I’m sure almost everyone can empathize.

The nurse say’s his worst day will be Christmas.  I’m glad I could get today and tomorrow off work to help him through this!

Have a happy holiday everyone! and remember someone always has it worse 😛 🙂

Sherlock Holmes Review

I have always taken pride in paying attention to details, although I have grown up in a world of theater I decided to try writing a movie review.

Just to begin I find reviews very biased but I suppose everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

I did not see the first Sherlock Holmes so I will not be comparing it to any other movie.

Warning smalllll spoiler alert!

It was a lot darker then I had thought/hoped it would be.  I mean reading the books, he is a lot more of a witty man and I feel like the script did not capture that side of him– holding only a couple laugh out loud moments.  Neither did I see a lot of the British comedy being used which I had also expected. So overall I’d have to say that Holmes was a disappointment of a character.  But one thing that did go right was that I did really believe Holmes and Watson’s relationship; work partners and family. There were some pretty touching moments between them– almost moving.  I also think Watson’s wife came out of character as a woman of her time as she was revealing the red books codes.  My favourite character had to be Sim, loyal, faithful and trustworthy, almost as a dog now I come to think of it (and I like dogs).  The bad guy character was typical, with the evil grin, high level of intelligence and trusty comrades, although he was a great foil to Sherlock Holmes in that they played their game of chess for the win.

The title of the movie however (The Game of Shadows) I felt did not reflect the story well, it set my expectations in a different direction. The story its self was dragged on a little too long.  Almost a 2 and a half hour movie, I feel there was a lot of fillers and things that were unnecessary to building plot,characters and feeling.  In our days a lot of movies are doing this and I believe it disconnects the audience– I mean, we get the point.  The plot was thin yet unpredictable.  I enjoyed his glancing into the future it reminded me of The Green Hornet.

Side note: One thing I noticed was when the Queen on the Chess board was brought to attention.  I think it would have been more powerful and symbolic if it was the king.  The king is who you aim for, the one you protect, the most important piece, and when you knock over your king you surrender.  Yes, the queen may make all of the moves, but she is also the most easily captured. Also just the DF (Dominant fantasy) Man=power especially back in the 1800’s.

What do you think?

Overall I was not wowed by the movie neither was I bored.  It was a bit slow in the beginning got better around the middle, then worse.  But I did really enjoy the ending.

Is it really ever THE END for Sherlock Holmes?

I give this movie a rating of 6.5/10
