So, I'm at work, and even though it's been busy today, I'm bored. I'm bored of customers complaining to me, and dealing with whining and pettiness.  I'm bored of the stupid. 

And because I'm bored, I've been thinking of things, and rambling down memories and trying to figure things out. So this is going to be a long, rambling post with probably no redeeming factors. 

Rambling rambles this way )

Yeah.  That's all I got now.  

I can see!

Or, I will be able to, when I get my new glasses in!  No contacts for right now, as I couldn't afford both, and I hadn't realized how off my perscription was until I could actually see again!  However, he did put them in my eyes so I could see what they are like, and he said if I do decide to get contacts, they would only be for partial wear, as with my job staring at a computer for over 8 hours a day they wouldn't work out.  

For those of you who wear contacts, my hat is off!  It didn't hurt or anything, but wow, that was weird!  I think they would be good for when I want to dress up and show off my eyes, but otherwise I don't think I would wear them very much, lol.  Still, I like that I have the option.

I like my new frames, they're fun and pretty at the same time.  And I'll be able to see!  Apparently, my astigmatism went from diagonal to vertical. Not sure how that happened, lol.  

Still working out plans with my sister.  She apparently told my mom she wants to go to Poland for 4 days?  I'm not sure how excited I am about that idea. On the one hand, it would be great to see if we could find any family who lives over there still, or at least what happened to them in WWII.  On the other hand, I only have 10 days, 9 with the day lost to traveling, and I want to meet a lot of you and just relax and have fun. Soooo... I'm not sure. I may have to tell her next year!  Or maybe shave it down to 3 days.  We'll see.  Plus, I have to be able to afford it, and money is going to be a little tight as is.  I won't have a whole lot to spend, but I'll have enough to buy some trinkets, pay for transport, and dinners out.  I'll have more information the closer I get to going over.  OMG, I'm so excited!

Also, I've been trying to work out every day.  I know it's not a kick ass workout, but I figure a little is better than nothing.  So my goal is to lose 10 pounds before I go over, because I doubt there's any way I can lose the 30 that I really want to.  Still... I'm working on it!  

I'm still torn between if I want to cut my hair. I think it's cute the way it is, but I can't do much with it. And I really like how I look in a bob.  So I'll think on it a bit more and decide mid March what I want to do.  That way I can either just get it trimmed or get it cut before I go over.  

Still dealing with writer's block. Urgh! It feels like all my creativity went down the drain. I tried to write this weekend and just kept deleting everything.  Sigh. 

Take care all!  *Hugs*

Just a quick question:  How do you know if you cracked a bone?

I tripped on my cat yesterday and crashed into a chair, arm first.  It hurt like crazy, but I didn't really think anything of it. I'm a clutz.  There isn't even really a bruise, but I can feel a bump/dent where I hit it.  It's on my forearm, just above the wrist. I'm thinking it's probably a bone bruise, but I've never really broken anything, or cracked anything, so how do I know if i need to get this looked at?  

Yes, I'm silly, I know.

Hi, all!  I'm sorry I've been quiet lately.  I'm trying not to let pain and depression get me down, and I think I'm starting to climb back up from that hole I was in for a while. 

I went to a sci-fi convention last weekend and had a really good time. I think it helped that I wore my belly dance costume both days, and received so many compliments.  Considering that I weigh more than I am comfortable with, it really made me feel good to have so many people, both men and women, tell me I looked sexy and hot.  I even got felt up a few times, lol!  Both with my consent!  Also, I even got a kiss!  Heeee!  Nothing is going to come of it, but it was nice to flirt and be sexy for a while! 

It was fun, being with people who accept me for who I am, and it reminded me how isolated I became when I went to work from home.  I still like working from home, but I'm really going to try and make sure I get out more and spend time with people.  

I got my vacation time approved at work, so all that is worked out. The only snag I've encountered is that my plane from England is coming in so late to Seattle that there aren't any flight to my hometown until the next day. Gar!  That means I either have to spend the night in the airport, or get a cheap hotel so I can get a few hours sleep before going back to the airport, and yuck!  So I have to see if I can figure it all out and make things work. I may end up catching a later flight on the day after I get back to the sates, and then taking the day after off.  I really want a day to recover from flying and airports and to just spend with the kitties.  

I'm really getting excited about going to England, looking forward to seeing my sister again and some of you all who I've never met in person!  I'm also getting nervous!  Usually flying doesn't scare me, but with long trips, I keep thinking, "Well, wouldn't it suck if the plan crashed!"  So I'm trying not to think about the bad stuff, and just concentrate on the good bits.

I have been searching for a new job, and found one that looked like it would have been really fun, but because it was through the VA center an the person in charge wasn't in, I think I probably missed it.  I'm not too disappointed, because I don't think the timing would have worked out, but I am going to be getting a lot more serious when the trip is over with.  

I'm trying to work on a few stories but my brain seems to have fizzled out.  I owe two people auction stories, which I am trying to get down, and some fills from a Sherlock Holmes community I'm on. There's one story, I call it the angry story, that I really want to finish, but it's very emotionally draining, so I have to give myself enough time to recover form it, lol.  

[livejournal.com profile] forcryinoutloud , [livejournal.com profile] elayna88 , Thanks so much for the gophers!  You guys are awesome!  Thank you so much!  

*Hugs to you all*  My flist rocks!

Hello, all!

This past weekend kind of sucked, but I think it's getting better.  I've had a migraine, stomach ache and back ache the past few days, thanks to the weather going from one extreme to the other.  Every time the air pressure changes I feel it!  

On Friday my mom's pug finally died.  The poor thing was on its last legs, and she was going to have him put down on Saturday, but he decided to go on his own terms and time, and passed peacefully.  Saturday, there was a funeral for a friend's son who overdosed. I didn't know him, but my mom had been his teacher and was just broken.  She really had a wretched weekend!

Hopefully the rest of 2011 will be better.

I went on another date with my friend M, though I'm not sure I should call it a date. He hasn't given any indication that he wants to take things that way, and since I'm fine either way, it doesn't bother me.  I just don't know what to call our time together, lol.  We had dinner at Red Robin and then went back to his place, where he showed me his World of Warcraft and Anime collection.  I've said it before, and I'll say it again:  embrace the geek!  

If nothing else, I feel comfortable being my own geeky self around him, so it's all good.

I wanted to get some writing down, but have just felt horrible.  Work is only made possible by the copious amounts of Vicoden I have taken, because sitting for too long is just agony.  But hopefully things will settle and I can get my mojo back.  I have two stories I'm writing for the Australia flood auction, one Sherlock BBC and one SGA. Also, I'm working with [livejournal.com profile] enkiduts on a story, and I have to get my section done.  I have a start on it, but haven't been really able to work on it in a while.  Hopefully that will change, as well.

What else is going on?

I saw the King's Speech.   I loved it!  The acting was brilliant, the story lovely in it's simplicity, and the fact that it was based on real events just made my little historian heart sing.  Definitely one to buy when it comes out.

Also saw Tangled, way back at the beginning of the year, and loved it, as well.  Haven't really seen anything else, though I'm hoping to drag M to see Green Hornet this weekend.  Nothing else looks really good out there right now.  

Oh, one other thing.  I'm working on getting my plane ticket to England, but OMG, the taxes are ridiculous!  The plane ticket itself is only about $400, but the taxes they apply are over $400!  Seriously, it's crazy!  I don't want to pay $800, with over half of that taxes!  So I'm hoping my sister can work her magic and find me a good deal, otherwise I'll just have to bite the bullet and purchase it now. 

Anyway, that's about my life in a nutshell.

It's gorgeous outside!  For the first time in about 3 weeks the sun is shining, there's no rain or wind, and it's about 50F.  It's a great birthday!  I'm at work, so, not perfect, but that's all right.   My mom and brother are coming over for dinner tonight and I have presents, lol.  I'm happy.  

Thank you to everyone for the birthday wishes, and to [livejournal.com profile] forcryinoutloud for the baby otter!  So cute!  

You guys rock!

Had to be up this morning at 7am to take my car in to get the new brakes, so of course I tossed and turned all night until about 3 or 4.  Woke up about 6 or a little after to the cats yowling outside my door, and threw a few shoes, which shut them up for about 15 minutes.

Got up, got dressed, fed the cats, and then had a quick breakfast of yogurt smoothie.  Went to brush my teeth....And Colonel threw up in the sink.  

It was disgusting.

I had to leave in 5 minutes to get the car to the shop in time for the appointment, so did a real quick clean up and then figured I could do the rest when I got back.

Got to the shop at 8 exactly, and two hours later have new breaks!!  Yay!

Treat myself to Burger King, which I know is not healthy at all, but it was a treat, so there!  *Sticks tongue out at self*

Ate regular breakfast and went to wash hands. At which time I realized that Colonel has spectacular aim when he vomits, and got it right down the drain.  Which is clogged.

Tried to clean it, but no use.  Poured a bottle of drain cleaner down there in the hopes it would clear it.  No use.

Then the sink started to drip into the cupboard beneath it. Turns out the sink is rusted through, and it just needed that little bit of pressure to start it leaking. 

So....  All this before 11am.   I'm kind of terrified what the rest of the day will be like.

OK, so I'm a bit early, but I figured I would say it now.  I hope everyone has a wonderful New Year's Eve, and that the headaches are very mild tomorrow.  

2010 was a pretty crappy year, I think we can all agree.  There were some good things, though.  I got switched to taking chats at my job, my brother got promoted, and my sister moved to England, which she has been wanting to do for years.  

I've made a lot of new friends, on LJ and in RL, and lost a few as well. 

I've found my way back to a Sherlock Holmes, whom I've always loved, but was always a bit intimidated by, and ended up writing an 80,000 page story.  Which I'll start posting in the next few days!

I've had a lot of health problems this year, and some money trouble because of it, but both are pretty much under control right now, so I'm starting the new year hopeful. 

I got a new coat, which I cannot tell you how much I love!  I will post pictures shortly.  Yes, I am that proud of my coat!  

And above all, DADT was repealed.  *Fist pump!*

I do have a few resolutions, though they're pretty normal ones.  

I want to lose 30 pounds this year, and am saving to purchase an elliptical machine. 
I want to be happy with my job, and an going to look into making changes.
I want to go back to school, or at least get started on looking into that.

I am going to go to England in April, and I'm looking forward to seeing some of you I've only ever known from LJ.  Please take pity on me when I visit and try not to laugh too much when I get hopelessly lost.  

Here's to hoping that 2011 is a much, much better year than 2010!

Hello, everyone!  Sorry I've been so quiet lately, but Christmas has been taking its toll on me, and I don't want to fill up my list with my whining.  I've been trying to keep my spirits up and not be depressed by the crazy customers or the fact I  have to work a regular shift on Christmas day.  Yeah, still feeling the sting of that one.

But my family is going to be celebrating on Christmas Eve, so I'm trying to stay upbeat and just enjoy the season as much as I can. 

So, enough of that.

The cats are doing well, and I'm doing all right.  My stomach is still being touchy, and I'm trying to take it one day at a time and not worry that I'll never be 100% again.  I have good days that are becoming more, so I'm going to be happy about that and deal with the pain when I have to.

My apartment is all decorated, I have pumpkin eggnog in the fridge, and since I'm working from home I can have all the Christmas music or movies on in the background that I can stand.  Plus, my two little monsters are keeping me company!

Also, I talked to my manager and asked about the possibility of being able to work from home a few days a week and coming in to the building the others.  I think that would be a great way to keep my stress down and save on gas, but also get me out of the apartment and around people.  I don't know if I will be able to, but the question has been asked and they're looking into it for me.  

Also also!  I talked to my sister yesterday and it turns out March will not be a good time for me to visit, as she will be trying to survive finals and essays out the wazoo.  So I'm going to head over in April.  Now I have to find out if I want to arrange to be there for the royal wedding, or skip that madness and go a bit earlier to miss it, but still get some of the excitement.   Any thoughts from my England friends?

I'm really looking forward to seeing her and London again.  And also meeting some of you who have been so amazing to me, but who I have never met face to face.  My sister said pretty much anytime after the first week in April, so anyone have any ideas? 

I'm also looking forward to meeting her boyfriend.  He's a royal marine and will have just come back from Afghanistan.  He sounds like a very nice man who is treating my sister well, but I think it would be great to just meet him!  I didn't even meet my sister's ex-husband until right before her wedding, lol!  Not that they are anywhere near there.  They have only been dating for a few months. But still....

I'm looking forward to visiting some of the pubs near where she lives and trying not to make a fool of myself.  My sister is a drinker, and so are a lot of her friends.  I am not.   We're very much two totally different people, and we don't go in the same circles at all.  But still...  I think it will be fun!

Also, going in April will give me more time to lose the weight!  I still have my heart set on losing 30 pounds before I head over.  I know I can do this!  I just have to really work at it.  My main problem is getting out and exercising.  Recently I've been so tired that's it's a struggle just getting out of bed in the morning.  Part of it is the cold weather, and another is fighting depression.  But I think once Christmas has passed, I'll feel a lot better and able to take on the world!

Plus, I'll have more vacation time saved up, and more money, lol!

So, this is where I stand right now.  I've sent out the most of my Christmas cards, just have to get a few more stamps and then the rest will be shipped out.  I have all but one of my presents bought, and I'm just hoping to survive in relatively good spirits.

Anyway, not much else to report!  I'll be starting to post my massive Holmes epic probably next week (SQUEE!!) and I'm getting excited about that.  I hope everyone has a lovely weekend and you are all doing well.  Take care!

Hi, all!  Not a whole lot going on with me, so I've been pretty quiet.  I seem to have gone into hibernation mode recently, and even if I go to bed early (11pm) I can't seem to wake up earlier than 10am.  Since I work from 1pm to 10pm, 11 is about the earliest I can manage.  Still, it doesn't really make for a productive day when I have to drag myself out of bed and give myself a little bit to get my brain working.  So I've mostly been catching up on emails and LJ in the morning and then working until 10 and then, if I'm feeling particularly wide awake after work, I'll read or watch tv until I head to bed.

Yeah, it's not exactly thrilling. 

But I have Thanksgiving off, and the Fri and Sat off after, so that will be nice.  My bro and his fiance have the day with us, since her family gets them for Christmas.  Lots of food next week!

On the fic front, my story is being currently edited, and once that's done it will go for a second edit and then I'll start posting.  I'm getting excited!!  

Take care all!

Hi, all!

I'm still alive.  I haven't really been doing anything much lately except work and sleep and work.  The new schedule is still throwing me off. I like being able to sleep in, but getting off at 10 makes it hard to get to sleep much before midnight, and I find myself sleeping until abut 10.  I'm trying to get my body used to going to be at midnight, getting up at 9, and then going for a long walk.   I still want to lose 30 pounds before I go to England, so hopefully I can keep this up. I have to keep watching my diet, too.  Not eating out, which I can't really afford anyway, and eating healthy.

In other news, OMG, I'm almost finished with my giant Holmes story!  It's a little over 80000 words now, and will probably end up abou 85000.  Umm.  Would anyone like to beta it for me?  It goes from PG-13 to NC-17, which is a first for me, but I don't think it's too bad.  Or does anyone know where I can find a beta? I figure once I get it finished and have someone do  a look over I can start posting.  Yay!

Also, on the Sherlock front, I got a new jacket!  Or, well, actually, I don't have it yet, I put it on layaway, but I'll have it next payday!  It's really warm, and so pretty!  It's a deep gray wool, almost military.  I'll have to take a picture when I get it and show you all my new coat! Really, I haven't had a new coat in, goodness, years. I love my military trench coat, but it doesn't fit me very well now that I've gained weight.  I was 40 pounds lighter when I first got it, after all.  But I call this new one my Sherlock coat because it kind of looks like the coat Benedict Cumberbatch wore in the new Sherlock series.  Heee.  I'm such a geek!  

Not much else going on, really.  In a sudden urge to be productive I've gone back and started tagging my journal, because I'm horrible and didn't tag ANYTHNG!  So that's being fixed.  It's been kind of weird, reading all my old posts.  I've been posting since 2004, so there's been a lot of stuff to tag!  I'm in 2009 now, though, so almost done! 

OK, I hope everyone is doing all right.  Have a great weekend, everyone!

I was so good today, if they gave awards for being an adult, I would so win! Considering that I did pretty much nothing the past two days, I'm rather proud that today I:
  • Paid the rent.
  • Did laundry.  And hung it up!
  • Cleaned the bathroom.
  • Vacuumed.
  • Dusted.
  • Moved stuff from a three drawer thing to the drawers of the desk in the hallway and then moved the first set of now empty drawers to the kitchen.  More storage, yay!
  • Rearranged my sister's boxes of stuff that I'm storing for her so they're no longer in the way and the kitty room once more looks semi presentable. 
  • Made dinner.
  • Wrote about 10 pages on my massive story. At 160 pages I'm getting close to almost done!  \0/

Whew!  I didn't even take a nap today!  The only things I didn't get done which I had wanted to was thoroughly scrubbing the kitchen and  getting my desk cleared off, because I put in for work from home. It's not something I particularly want to do, as there is a very great danger of becoming the hermit cat woman, but since work has moved my team into a teeny tiny room with barely space to breath, it seemed the better option.  

But I can clean the desk off later, once I actually hear something.  Until then, I'm just kind of happy my apartment no longer looks like a pig sty. 

How is everyone else doing?  How was your day today? 

EEP!

At work today a huge bug hovered over my team's cubicles for nearly 5 hours. It was a junebug, or a stinkbug. No one was brave enough to get a good look. It started just hanging out on one of the pillars, and then scared us all half to death when it flew off and up to the lights that hang down.

This thing was monstrous! I think we all spent several hours keeping a wary eye on it, afraid it would get it into its buggy head to land on one of us. We all swore that if it did we would not be responsible for any screams that might follow. Not exactly a great thing on the call floor.

At one point, about 7 of us were all standing, watching it make its way across the lightbar, until one of the guys became brave enough to get a stick and try and poke it. When it flew off, we all cringed away and covered our heads.

We named it Killit. None of us had the heart, or courage to, though.

I hope it won't be in tomorrow!

It was all hilarious, in a terrifying kind of way.
piplover: (Happy fan!)
Hello, all! I hope everyone is having a lovely day.  For my fellow Americans, I hope your Labor Day is a nice day off.  If you have it off. And if you don't, I hope you get paid loads for working today.

I - in a fit of boredom and wanting something to do, dyed my hair red.  Which didn't go exactly as planned.  I'm not sure what happened, since I'm pretty sure I completely saturated my hair with the color.  But there are long streaks of my regular color, so I think I may have to go back and buy another box and just completely soak my head in it.  It doesn't look bad, and I like the color.  But - I feel a bit like a zebra.  

Also, making my very first roast in the crockpot today.  Not sure how it's going to turn out, since the crockpot is smaller than I remembered, and i in order to get the potatoes, onions and carrots in the pot, I had to put the roast in first and then fill it with water.  So now the roast is totally submerged.  Hrrrrmmm.  I'm thinking it may be more like a soup than a roast.  Oops.  

Anyway, not much going on.  I'm going to try and work some more on my story.  I'm at 47000 words now, and it is by far the longest story I have ever written.  Only the boys have been rather silent lately, and I'm not sure why.  Have to try and pry the story out of my head.  Chocolate should be an appropriate bribe to the muse.  

And speaking of which, kind of, I'm going to check out eliptical machines today.  I have trouble getting to the gym because of my schedule, and an eliptical is one of the things I can use for hours and not have it aggravate my knee or back.  Hopefully my stomach will get with the program, too.    But for now I'm just looking at prices and sizes and such.  I have the perfect place for it, and honestly, I know that if I spend money on it, I will work my butt off, literally.  So, yeah.  The goal is to lose 30 pounds by March.  We'll see if I can get there.  I'm already trying to eat right and cutting out a lot of junk and stuff. But the exercise is the one thing I really have to work on. Wish me luck!

Have a great day, everyone!

I have 2 hours to go, and things are going very slow.  What's going on with all of you?  Anything exciting happening? 

I bought Without a Clue and a book on the Victorian era in England.  Yes, yes I am obsessed.  But anyway, I'm kind of ticked because UPS didn't leave them.  I tracked the package and it said that a signature was required.  When did UPS start requiring a signature for items under 100$?  Grr.  Now I have to wait until tomorrow to try and contact them, and because I'm at work from 7-12, I really hope I don't miss them a second time. Stupid UPS.  Don't they understand I want my items?  Sheesh.  I'm debating leaving a note on my door: "Dear UPS guy/gal.  Please, please, please leave my package.  Really, I promise not to tell.  There may be a five dollar bill under the welcome mat."

Can you tell I'm going slightly stir crazy? 

Here, have a drabble!

"I am never, ever doing that again."
"That's what you said last time."
"I mean it this time!"
"You said that, as well."
"Merry, you are most unsympathetic friend."
"I would probably be much more so if you hadn't eaten the entire pie."
"But it was Sam's special strawberry!"
"I know!  And you didn't even save me a bite."
A long silence followed this pronouncement, followed by a deep, rumbling belch. 
"It was quite good."
Merry felt quite justified beating his cousin soundly about the head with his pillow. 

Yay!

Just had one of my buddies from Basic find me on Facebook!  I really don't do anything on Facebook except play Farmville, lol.  I don't think I even know how to send a message.  But not only did she find me, but she pointed me in the direction of several others I went to Basic with, and the Drill Sgt I would have gone to hell for.  It's amazing to see what's going on with all of them, and how far we've all come!

Hello, all!

Not much going on today.  My mom has a friend who is getting a new couch, so I am getting the old one, yay!  The couch I have now isn't bad, but it's about 4th generation hand me down, and the cushions are starting to show their stuffing.  So new furniture, yay! 

Also, I started a story last night, for the first time in a long time, and this gives me hope that I'll be able to finish Shirebound's story soon.  Sorry, hon, I'm working on it, I promise!!  I'm hoping that with the new writing my brain will be jump started and I'll be able to really get back in the flow.  

Only bad thing is physically this isn't a good weekend.  My stomach was really bothering me last night, and today I'm so dizzy I'm having to use my cane to keep from doing a face-plant.  My hands are really shaky, too, which I know is a side effect of my medicine.  I'm not doing too bad, overall, so I'm not complaining.  It's just kind of annoying that the cure has it's own drawbacks.  I want to be healthy, darn it!

Anyway, I hope everyone is having a great day.  We had sunshine yesterday, but today we're back to the rain.  I'm so sick of rain right now.  I live in a desert for a reason!  

Take care, have a great day!

My weekend has been deliciously boring.  I bought Rob Thurman's new book, Chimera, yesterday, and am just over halfway through. I love that new book feeling!

I have to admit that I indulged and purchased a computer game today.  I can count on one hand the times I've purchased a computer game, but it was Sherlock Holmes, and there were 5 games included.  I can only resist so much, lol!

Now I'm at work, doing an overtime shift.  I'm supposed to work from 5-10, but I'm not feeling good so think I may leave a bit early.  I'll still get some extra money, and the rush seems to be over for the night, so the extra help won't be as necessary as when I got in.

Still, I'm having a wonderful weekend, and plan on sleeping in again tomorrow, and maybe even taking a nap!

Yeah, my life is boring.  I'm OK with that.  :)

I hope everyone had a good Friday.  Does anyone have any exciting weekend plans?  I figure if I get really ambitious I may go see a movie!  
piplover: (OMG!)
My neighbor is singing karaoke.  Very, very badly.  For about 10 minutes I thought it was the upstairs neighbors' kid wailing.  Or a sick cat.

I survived having a houseguest for a week!  Maybe not very successfully, but I made it.  Things were -  hrmmm, tense, I guess would be the right word.  Apparently my ex thought that there were going to be sexy fun times while he was down here and I - well, that was pretty much the last thing on my mind.  He was rather put out when I told him he was sleeping on the couch, and from then on things were rather uncomfortable.

He wasn't horrible, or tried to do anything.  But he was very - I don't know, passive aggressive?  Taking verbal pot-shots at me, and although I'm pretty sure he was just teasing, having to deal with that for 5 days was pretty wearing. 

We drove up to Seattle on Monday for my doctor appointment with the specialist, stayed the night in a hotel with twin beds, and then was told by the doctor that I had basically wasted my time going up. 

I did, however, get an explanation of what was going on and why my stomach was hurting, which is a big relief.  Apparently, in a small percentage of people, PTSD triggers something in the body and they become hyper-sensitive.  They think this is what happened to me.  So they told me the dose of meds I'm on is exactly what I need to be on, and that the pain will probably come and go for a bit longer until my body stops being so hyper-sensitive. 

So, I'm not counting the trip a total loss. 

And today is my Friday, so I just have to get through work and then I'm off for three days.  Well, except for the CT scan tomorrow, which I am not thinking about because - Yuck!  

I hope everyone is doing all right.  Sorry I wasn't around last week, but I'm back.  Take care, everyone, talk to you soon!
