Bright Lights, Dark Knight

Posted by raetsel at Sunday, August 10, 2008

Friday I had a check up at the dentist and that was all clear, I just had a chip repaired on one tooth. It's important I have regular dental checks to eliminate my teeth as a possible source of infection.

On Friday evening I met Gareth from work and we had a meal before going to see the new Batman film, "The Dark Knight". It was my first trip into Birmingham (or town as I would call it ) for almost 5 months. It was a bit of an odd feeling, though little had changed at the Bullring - the odd shop under new management - it felt quite new and different. Being away from somewhere for a while makes you notice things you normally take for granted.

We ate at Wagamamas and then went to see The Dark Knight on the big Imax screen down at Millennium point. I enjoyed the film more than I thought I would based on some of the reviews I had heard or read. The Imax screen is certainly the way to see these big action films, there were audible gasps and people going "wow" at the opening helicopter view of Gotham City.

I'm really enjoying these "normal" experiences. This week the plan is to see "Wall-e" and dine at Nando's beforehand. This will be the first time I can actually try the chicken at Nando's.

Tomorrow is bloods and line change at the day unit in the morning then on to the office. Thursday afternoon I have a meeting with my transplant consultant to discuss the finer detail of the stem cell transplant.
