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 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.
