My surgery went a little bit longer than expected as the surgeon discovered that one of the three stones in my gallbladder was the size of a golf ball and thus needed to make a larger incision in order to retrieve it. I’ve been recovering at home sporting an icky drainage tube and a corset-like garment.

Unfortunately, beyond re-reading Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë prior to surgery as a means to calm myself, I haven’t felt like reading much — but did manage to watch season 1 of The Vampire Diaries and season 4 of True Blood which are based on a two series of vampire books by L.J. Smith and Charlaine Harris.

In a sad bit of news, this morning my collector’s edition of Bram Stoker’s Dracula cracked in half while attempting to remove it from the case.

I realize that I am on quite the vampire kick.

I hope to post something with more substance in the near future.
