☁ Math is going VERY well. I'm shocked and not really sure how that's happening, but hey, I'll take it. :D

☁ I've actually been using the Netflix thing way more than I would've ever expected. Go figure. I might keep this after all- it's pretty nifty. ^_^ Also, on that note, I watched The Secret of Kells last week and really loved it (so gorgeous and fun and unique!), and I've recently gotten into watching Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, since I'd never actually seen it before. As much as certain things about the show are problematic... fuck it, it's fun, and a lot of the "victims" are just so so sweet.

☁ My birthday was Wednesday. I had classes, but it's the lightest day of the week and I didn't have any tests, so at least there's that. Stef picked me up from school, we went to Denny's for an early dinner (smothered friiiiiiiies), killed some time, and then went to go see the new Percy Jackson movie. Which, by the way, was a TON of fun even if there were some things (particularly with casting) that bothered me. It's a good time, and that's the whole point. Totally worth it.

☁ My body at least decided to wait until the next morning to be like, "oh yeah, you're sick now." Bleh. I probably should've known it was coming- I hadn't felt 100% for several days before that. When I get winded walking from home to the bus stop- I mean, I'm out of shape, but that's something I do ALL THE TIME- there's something wrong and that probably should've been a huge hint. XD So yeah, I woke up Thursday feeling like I'd gotten hit by a train. -_- I'd love to say that I feel better today, but the truth is, I don't. XD

☁ I had something started for BG, but with feeling like absolute crap, I chose to sleep instead of finish it before the deadline. Kinda sucks, but priorities. I haven't actually read any fic yet, but I will. At some point. Or something. <_<

☁ So the plan has been to stay home for the most part, relax, catch up on some zzz's and animes and gay fashion shows... oh yeah, and I guess there's probably some homework I should do. It's especially disappointing that I feel like crap because there was a festival going on downtown yesterday that I really wanted to go to, but I just wasn't up to it. I do have to go out today, though- I need food and laundry and I'm almost out of medicine. :/

☁ I'm seriously considering doing the Couch to 5k thing- after I get rid of this cold, of course, though I may just work on extra walking in the meantime, I dunno.

Aaaand now I've been up for ages and haven't managed to do anything really. Whoops. XD

31 Days Meme, Day 20

20. A difficult time in your life
(I skipped yesterday because my internet was being weird and then I fell asleep earlier than planned, see note later. Whoops. XD) Um, most of it, to be totally honest? XD But probably my most difficult was when I was15. My dad was gone, my grandparents died that year, my mom was constantly talking about moving somewhere new (I know it was Oklahoma at one point, and I think Florida was talked about, and there may have been others before it went to Wisconsin and stayed there), I was dealing with questions of sexuality, my grades had been going down the drain for a while, I was seriously depressed... yeah. That was a really rough year.

- They've started building a Starbucks in the plaza near my house. I haven't decided whether this is a bad thing or a downright terrible thing. XD

- I was done messing with the sleep thing- I've been TRYING, and it's just not working- so I picked up some melatonin. I read a thing that said to take it about 3 hours before you want to go to bed. Um. A word of advice, don't do that. <_< It was about a half hour later that I got kicked in the face with sleepy. Slept about 4 1/2 hours, was up for a while, felt sick so I lied down again, woke up a bit before 10:30. Whoops. Well, still not as bad as the 1pm bullshit that's been happening, so. I was hoping to not have to take it again, but CLEARLY I do. XD Maybe for the rest of the week, and hopefully that will straighten me out for Monday. I know it's non-addictive, but it's still a hormone and I'd rather not mess with my hormones any more than absolutely necessary, you know?

- Speaking of being sick... I've ALWAYS had a sensitive stomach, but I'm really starting to think I have IBS, because of reasons I'm not getting too into. Let's just say that for the last month or so I've been feeling bloated all the time and most times getting sick after I eat anything, and there's no rhyme or reason to it, so it's not like I know a particular type of food to avoid. (Okay, seriously, as an example- Kelly and I got an early dinner last night. Stomach was FINE, and I brought the leftovers (chicken) home. I had some of the leftovers for breakfast this morning- stomach raised perfect holy hell. Same EXACT thing, two different reactions. I never know what's going to happen when I eat.) Unfortunately, with no insurance and no money to go to the doctor (especially since an IBS diagnosis is an elimination game, so a lot of tests and shit), well.... I don't know. Maybe I'll try probiotics. I've read that can help. Although those are kind of expensive too. :/

Alright. I'll do today's rightful meme later. For now I need to try to pull my shit together and go get my books for school, because FUCK it's Wednesday already, bleh. Maaaaaybe get a haircut because it's driving me nuts, I don't know yet.

As per usual, this has been sitting in a file for weeks. Whoops. )

I'll do another post in a minute with specific class stuff- hence the part 1, because I waited so long to post this that I felt it would be too ridiculous for one entry even under a cut- so if you're not interested in that, obviously feel free to skip. ^_^

- Final call: Holiday card post here (DW) and here (LJ). I am sending these out this afternoon at some point, so they will go out TOMORROW. (Hopefully they'll get where they need to be in time- apologies if they don't. Meant to do it yesterday and didn't manage to leave the house.)

I have a few minutes to kill, so I might as well post this entry that's been sitting in notepad for three days, right? XD

I really need to post more often so this doesn't happen... )
verloren1983: (Aww Crap)
 ☁ Still exhausted. I woke up the other day with a sore throat and stuffy nose. Yaaaaaaay. Hopefully it'll go away like colds seem to be going away for me lately- I've had quite a few "false starts" this season where I thought I was getting sick but then didn't. So far the hoping doesn't seem to be working, since I'm still all stuffy and miserable, but. *crosses fingers and toes*
☁ A little late to say this, but feel free to ignore previous post. Still feel that way, but I'm feeling a bit more sane about it, I guess? That kind of stuff isn't something I usually inflict on you guys. I'm blaming hormones and lack of sleep for that one. Especially since I really have no idea what's going on hormone-wise. My body did the girl thing for a day and then stopped, no lie. I don't know either. :/
☁ On a related tangent to the previous post... Erin has been joking around about me moving down with her for a while now. (Actually, SINCE she moved down there.) At this rate, it's going to become a serious conversation at some point. I know I would -HATE- it in the summer- New York is too hot for me, I don't even want to think about Texas. But it would still be a step above where I am, and I could hopefully find a job and save up some so that I can move somewhere that I would actually WANT to be. Because even if I did move to Texas, I can't see that being someplace that I'd want to live long-term. You know?
☁ Lappy has been restarting on its own more and more. I knew it was some kind of overheating problem, but I wasn't really sure why- most of the time, I sit with lappy sitting on the arm of the couch with the fan hanging over air- nothing obstructing the fan at all. After yet another restart, I hit google... I couldn't do quite what it said simply because apparently Toshiba has to be difficult and made it so that you have to take the whole damn laptop apart to get to the fan, but I did blow out the fan as well as I could through the vents with compressed air. It hasn't restarted since I've done it. Also lappy sounds SO much better, so clearly it needed to be done. Seriously. *hugs him*
So. Compressed air: not just for keyboards. Good to know.
☁ On that note, one more point for Chrome- when lappy does the suddenly restarting thing, Chrome DOES NOT LOSE ALL MY GOD DAMN TABS. Whereas Firefox, more often than not, does. (And yes, I have it set up to save them. Doesn't work if the laptop turns itself off in self defense.)
☁ In other news, I've more or less talked a co-worker into going to Pride with me. :3 There will be much fun and drinking. I would've gone anyway even if I'd been by alone, but it would've been a little awkward and I would've felt a little loser-y being there my myself. So yay. And she's bi/pan, so no awkwardness with the gay thing. Should be fun! :D

☁ There are potential plans in the works for a family meetup this fall... with Kelly and I going to see Erin, and then my father will supposedly come as well. I. Ugh. I'm supposed to be giving the idea a shot, but honestly? I don't WANT to. Maybe I'm being a bit of a child about this. I'm willing to accept that. Aside from not wanting to see him, this is my VACATION we're talking about. We are talking about me not being able to relax the entire week because he's there- during the time when I'm supposed to be able to relax and have fun and not have to worry about anything. I understand that it'll be easier if it's the three of us together. I really do get that. But it doesn't change the fact that I told Kelly I didn't want to have anything to do with this, and I told her that for a REASON. That reason being that I DON'T WANT TO HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH THIS. Point blank. I don't know, maybe I'm being too selfish here. Am I being too selfish here?

1. It figures. I sign up for [livejournal.com profile] ihikago , and my body goes "mwahahaha, time to get sick!" BAH. I'm still not really sick yet, just feeling like complete shit, so I'm taking vitamins and hoping this doesn't turn into much of anything. I can hope, right? ^_^;;;

2. Happy belated Valentine's Day! I was going to do a little post yesterday after work, but I ended up being locked out of my room for forever and then I had internet issues, so it didn't quite happen. Though actually, be glad you missed it. PMS brings out the homicidal urges and it... wasn't pretty. Let me put it that way.

I'm feeling a little better on that score, if only because I'm too tired. Homicidal urges require an energy level I'm not quite capable of at the moment. My brain isn't quite here. That should make work extra fun! </sarcasm>

3. For those of you who didn't see it: meta on the gay in Hikaru no Go. Definitely worth a read. A lot of it, yeah, isn't anything I haven't thought myself before, but it also brought up some good points. And the section on names is very, very interesting.

Mrrrr, I suppose I should attempt to start getting ready for work. Or something. -_- Later~

1. I've been meaning to write entries, just... work has been kicking my ass lately. Oh, and I think I'm coming down with a cold. Lovely. All in all it means that I've been very tired. I got home from work yesterday just exhausted. Well... I work today and tomorrow, and then when I go back to work it'll be Christmas. So no more pre-Christmas bullshit. Of course, that brings in the post-Christmas bullshit, but I'm trying not to think about that right now. At least it won't be fucking Christmas cards. >_<

2. It's snowing. Again. For the third day in a row. God, I hate snow. -_- Though Akichan made a good point in that it's not really the snow, it's the walking in snow part. Ugh.

...speaking of ugh, just found this: "This weekend’s winter wonderland is expected to continue today with another 5 to 10 inches of snow. That’s on top of about 11 inches of snow the region received Friday and Saturday." ............................................because apparently almost a foot of snow isn't enough, adjksaljdkslajdla.

3. Ai- Got your postcard. Pretty. <3

4. Junjou Romantica 9- *SQUEEEEEEE!* ZOMGMISAKI! Watched it last night, and may actually... watch it again. ^_^;;;

5. [livejournal.com profile] fifthmus  got turned in on time, by the way, for better or worse. *nervous* I at least hope my recipient doesn't totally hate it.

......it's totally tempting to take a nap right now. I was going to go out before work, but of course it's storming again, so no go. I also need laundry which I don't have time for. Meh. But I -do- need a shower, so I should probably do that soon. And maybe watch an episode of... something. Haven't really been watching anime much lately except re-watching Fruits Basket with Kelly. Which she is predictably in love with. XD

1. Sleepy. This cold is kicking my ass, like colds tend to do. Lately, I've been getting up at 10 or 11, fooling around on the computer for a bit, and then going back to bed for another hour or two. *sigh* Not very productive at all.

2. Got a bill in the mail that's over $700. *headdesk* This is in addition to the one I already have that's almost $500. *headdesks again* I'm so screwed.

3. I got a letter saying that the leave of absence was approved. Which is good, because that means I shouldn't lose my insurance or anything. However, they also sent a "fitness for work" form that I'm supposed to have my doctor fill out. -_- I've got to ask Kerry about that, because the form is basically the exact same thing as the doctor's note I gave him after my post-op checkup. I really don't want to have to bug them yet again about this if I don't have to.

4. I realized last night that my "currently watching" is up to seven. Eight, actually, since Avatar technically isn't anime, so it's not on the anime list site. *sigh* I -did- have it down to like... three. In all fairness, two of them are still airing and I'm up to date on those. But still. Looks like I need to be watching some anime, and plugging in the other computer to let one of them finish downloading while I'm at work. XD We'll see how that goes.

5. [livejournal.com profile] fifthmus . Ugh. I don't... know if I'm up to that this round, to be honest. Especially with the writing being what it's been lately. I'll have to think about it.

On that happy note, I think I'm going to nap for an hour or so. *yawn* Later.

I know this is a no brainer really, but for those few of you on my flist who are actually American- GO VOTE!

I had to be up bright and early to do it, since Mom was insisting that we HAD to go right when she got out of work at 7am. Ugh. But it's done and I don't have to worry about it anymore. Now I sit back and wait for the results to come in. Hey... either way we get rid of Bush, and that's a good thing.

Kelly killed me, though. We were just talking, and she's going, "Well, Obama's mother is an illegal alien from Afghanistan!" ................................er, what? She didn't seem to believe me that there was a lot of that shit going around but 99.9% of it wasn't true, including that. She was also convinced that if Obama's elected, he'll get assassinated. Possible, yes, but that's what Biden is there for. And should something happen to him, it's Nancy Pelosi. It's not like there's not a back up plan here. *headdesk* My sister, you guys... sometimes I really wonder about her.

Murphy's Law: As soon as you buy a shiny new box of cold medicine with a strong decongestant, your cold will shift so that you don't need it anymore, only you've used one dose so you can't take it back to the store.

UGH. On the upside, I can breathe. On the downside, I sound like SHIT, because my throat hurts like HELL. Also on the upside, this also means that chances are really good that this is a cold and not a dental issue, though I keep checking that area of my gumline neurotically anyway. XD

I still don't know what I'm going to do about this leave of absence form issue. *sigh* Absolutely no idea. T_T

O_O Holy shit, the right side of the tray my keyboard sits on just broke. *nearly had a heart attack* Well........ fuck. That complicates things.

**EDIT** Double shit. Not going out with Stef tomorrow because of the sick thing, so I have no way to get to the doctor's office at all. Fuckfuckfuckfuck.

**EDIT 2** GAH. MOM. COPIER =/= FAX MACHINE. PRICE CHOPPER DOES NOT HAVE ONE, SO QUIT TELLING ME TO GO THERE TO FAX OVER THE FORMS. IT WILL NOT WORK, AS THEY HAVE A COPIER, NOT A FAX MACHINE. (Nevermind, apparently you have to go to the service desk and have them do it, which I didn't know previously. I was just supposed to psychically know. Oh, and the stuffy nose is back, lovely. Not like I needed to breathe or anything.)

Still alive. ^_^ Been sleeping a lot, and the drugs they put me on throw me for a complete loop, but the sleeping is generally a good thing. Keeps me from doing anything stupid. Like. Er. Trying to do laundry. ^_^;;;;; (Yes, I did. I was as careful as possible. It wasn't so stupid that I opened up the incisions or anything, but stupid enough that the pain level was up a couple of notches today. Ugh.

Scott called wanting to know when I'm coming back to work. He was a real ass about it. I wanted to strangle him. Because clearly I planned this ahead of time and didn't tell them, just to screw him over. It's EMERGENCY SURGERY, ASSHOLE. GAH. I had the worst stomach ache of my entire life and it turned out my appendix was threatening to explode, okay? There's not really room to manipulate that, so stop trying to make me feel guilty for not being there. >_< (Besides, if I was going to do something like that, it wouldn't have been on my TWO DAYS OFF. Duh. I don't think anyone wants to spend their weekend in the hospital, do you?)

And since I didn't mention this before... they found a couple of other things while they were trying to figure out what the fuck was wrong with me, since originally the pain wasn't in the appendix area at all. I have gallstones. A bunch of them. Which is... all kinds of fun, but also may never cause an issue. Also they mentioned something about my liver, a possible benign tumor. O_o I only heard this mentioned once, though, so I don't know what happened to that. -_-

All in all... can this week be over yet?

2. I woke up at 6am with the most horrific stomach ache. I don't know what I ate that upset it so much, but man... I still don't feel very well, to be honest. I gave a bit of thought to calling in today, but I'd just be told I had to come in anyway. *sigh* Probably just going to take some more Pepto and attempt to put something in my stomach. I'd had a sandwich a bit before bed, so I think I'll avoid anything sandwich-like. ^_^;;; Hopefully it'll get better, because seriously, it's going to suck if I don't. I'm pretty sure it's me, myself, and I for the first three hours of my shift. Which means no breaks to run to the bathroom for me. FUN.

*whine* I don't want to eat, but I know that I need to, as I haven't in almost 12 hours and won't get the chance until probably 7pm. *whine* Okay, okay, fine. *makes food*

I'm SO exhausted... I don't even know why I'm still awake, really. Maybe because I seem to have OD'd a little bit on Excedrin (as in, two doses in about... twelve hours, which apparently isn't a good thing) and my stomach hurts like hell, so I probably couldn't get to sleep anyway. Bah. It doesn't help that I really haven't gotten very much sleep in the past few days...

KH is really starting to piss me off. So you know.

An old guy accused me of taking his credit card today... when really, he was just an idiot and couldn't remember where he put it after I gave it back to him. Then he tried telling me that I purposely didn't refund the tax on an item he'd just returned when it was a non-taxable item to begin with. Grrr. It's like, first you accuse me of being a thief and now you're telling me I don't know how to do my job? Pshh. Fuck off. I really hope he felt like shit, but I'm sure he didn't even give it a second thought. Asshole. *I love my job, I really do*.... yeah, right. Then Paul was being a major league asshole and he almost got my foot up his ass. Several times. And it doesn't help that my brain has decided to save the "super-bitch" part of PMS until just after my period, so the last few days I've been barely suppressing this basically constant anger that I have for absolutely no reason (and it seems to have erased my brain filter, you know, the thing that keeps you from saying everything that pops into your head... it's not a good thing to be without, especially in my case where every other thing that pops into my head is some kind of sarcastic or bitchy remark). Yeah. Hopefully that'll end soon, because I think I'm really starting to piss people off. No.. scratch that. I know I'm really starting to piss people off.

Alright, off to bed I suppose. If I can fall asleep with my stomach feeling like this. Ugh.

Best convo of the night:
"Bite me." -Me
"No thanks." -Paul
"I wasn't really offering... besides, I know where that mouth has been." -Me
*Mary and Paul started cracking up instantly, whereas I impressed myself by lasting a good two seconds before I started laughing hysterically. Keep in mind that this is in the front store, with a bunch of customers around. ... we probably looked completely insane. After I'd gotten myself under control somewhat...
"Well, not all of them, but I know some of them."
*To which Paul looked at me like he was totally scandalized. He he. A few minutes later, Paul practically threw a box of Midol at me, going "With your attitude, I think you need this."

The bad news: I'm still sick. Oh, and my little friend decided to visit as of Monday. The good news: I'm not as sick as I was, it's mostly down to a sore throat and a little coughing now. And the cramps are gone.

Regression to age 15 beginning...
Fall Out Boy concert in a little more than twelve hours! *squee* Kelly and I will both have cameras of the film (hers) and digital (mine) variety, so if I get any decent ones I'll probably put them up at some point. The best part about this? It turns out that Kevin and Jess are working the Pepsi for this (they work the booths, you know, where they sell all the insanely priced stuff)- and Jess said that if we find them, they can give us 50% off on whatever we want. Yay! Looks like we're going to have to make a point of finding them...
Returning to appropriate age...

Sorry, I just couldn't help myself. Besides, the more I'm squeeing about that, the more chance there is of my brain finally realizing that I'm quickly running out of time and to kick into gear. I have laundry to do (because I have no clothes whatsoever). I need a shower (because I smell, and I know it). I need to pack my purse with essentials for tomorrow (today, technically... I need to do this shortly because I know I'm going to forget something major, and this way I'm leaving myself enough time to rectify that. Otherwise I'll be kicking myself in the ass for days). I need to charge batteries for my camera, and get all my photography shit together. I need to get money out for possible momento buying (I'm limiting myself to $100, which is entirely too much, but I don't plan on spending all of it... and even if I do, I don't think I'll care as long as I go home with something really cool). I need to GO THE HELL TO BED at some point. That, of course, being on the bottom of the priority list ;)

As a complete change of subject (and to further my blatant procrastination)... a semi-entry I wrote yesterday:
Strange, how watching a movie can spur time travel in your brain. I'm sitting here watching The Last Unicorn, one of my favorite movies as a kid (which still has the most gorgeous soundtrack, by the way) and suddenly I'm eight years old again, sitting on the floor of my room in front of an ancient black and white 13 inch tv. And it feels so damn real, like I'm ACTUALLY sitting there. Extremely weird.

Is it just me, or are Mommy Fortuna and the harpy bits just a little bit too scary for kids to be watching?

On a fun note, this is a bootlegged copy of the movie when fox aired it some weekend along with Pretty Piggies and Yogi's First Christmas (it was some marathon or something)... the commercials are just so entertaining. Just to give you an idea on the dating of this recording: The Pepsi Arena was still the Knickerbocker Arena. There are previews for "Parker Lewis Can't Lose", "ALF", "Perfect Strangers", "Star Trek: The Next Generation", and "The Gambler: The Adventure Continues". The Long John Silver commercial with the holiday stemware was running (I used to love that one), and of course, the "I'm Sorry" Bounty commercials. *LMAO* Kelly and I used to sing that one to each other when one of us got the other pissed, which was often.

Random Quotes from the Movie:
-"There are no happy endings because nothing ends."
-"Oh my god, I'm engaged to a Douglas Fir."
-"Do something!"
"What can I do, you think the Red Bull likes card tricks?"
-"I am a bearer, I am a dwelling, I am a messenger-"
"You are an idiot!"
Alright, I'm off to maybe do some of those things I need to do. *ugh* I'll hopefully be back Thursday/Friday with news of the concert and pictures, as I won't be able to get on the computer Wednesday. Later!

Best line of the day: "Focus on one thing? One artistic goal? As. in. concentrate. for. more. than. 20. sec- oh look, a shiny thing. *wanders off* (From Chershirecaticus on DeviantArt)
