Everything hurts. Everything. My back, my neck, my shoulders, my arms, my hips, my thighs... what in the heck did I do to myself? Seriously? I can't think of anything particularly out of the ordinary, unless it's just plain old "too much time in the car" + "not enough motor activity" = "body hates me."

I braved the mall and got lots of shopping done... but not quite everything.

Do I really have to go again?

I want a stuffed hippopotamus that farts, and I want to name him Bert.

That is all. Carry on.

Ok, so the snow last week was pretty. Greasy, yes, and it did make driving less than fun, but at least it was pretty. Tonight's mess? Slush falling from the sky? Dirty, slimy, sloppy, wet, gross, and hell on the roads. I don't even get pretty from it.


And the driving? My neck and back is starting to hurt... I think I'm seeing massage in my future.

This waking up at 3am to get paperwork done is for the birds.

I'm "supposed" to be going to the Have Fun Storming the Castle event tomorrow. (Supposed is in quotes because while I didn't pre-reg, I do have people expecting me there.) I'm tired, feeling a little m'eh about people. Still having general, "Ok, so do I really belong here?" angst about big SCA stuff (these people claim I don't get to claim newbie status anymore... I beg to differ). And to top it off... my belly has decided that now is a perfect opportunity for revolt. And... I could probably type out a 2 page list of stuff that I could be doing this week and fill it quite readily with a font size of no larger than 12 point.

And I apparently am competing in the "How much random inappropriate punctuation can you put in one paragraph" competition, but that was un-intentional.

I've got the dress out (I really need to make some garb). I've thrown together snacky food to toss in the picnic basket. I've found a razor so I can shave my legs in the morning. I'm pretty sure I know where my shoes are. I've even prepared the stuff I want to print off to give some background information to my tentative name decision. I think I'm going. I just have to talk myself into it. The only thing I don't have any clue about what to do with is my painfully modern hair. I think I'll probably attempt to continue to claim newbie status on that one.

Random news update of the day? About... oh.... 9 months ago I accidentally left both of my flash drives in a pocket, and they ended up in the washing machine. I found them before they made it into the drier, but still... shit. Anyway, I threw them in a bag, figured that someday I'd figure out just how fire-trucked-up they were, and if I was able to salvage any information at all. Cue 9 month period of time where they hung out in one location or another, giving me the heebie-jeebies about trying to plug them in, convinced they were dead and that through magical superpowers of death, would kill my laptop. (I never claimed to be completely rational you know.) Today.... I plugged them in, they both appear to work just fine. All of the data is there, it all pulled up easily, no errors.... the only thing I didn't do was try to save anything new. So, apparently the washing machine does not equal automatic death to flash drives (not that I'm going to try again mind you).

Currently struggling between the "feeling anti-social and would rather curl up at home on my couch with my dog" and "ok dorky-feeling-sorry-for-yourself-antisocial-girl time to get off of your butt and go hang out with people" moods. The confusing point is that I know that after the past week (my Aunt just died, there was all of the appropriate family gatherings and ceremonies to deal with... 3 hours away) I do need to take some time for myself, and allow myself time alone, but I also know I slip into that anti-social thing far too easily and that sometimes it is good to be with people and do normal things. ::sighs:: Crap.

On the plus side, I'm currently trying to convince one of my very good friends that she wants to go do SCA stuff with me... I mean, who wouldn't want to Have Fun Storming the Castle? Luckily for my brain, this event is nearly 2 weeks away, plenty of time for me to sort out my anti-social behaviors.

Curling up under lap blankets with pillows on the couch to watch TV or movies...

Crocheting, preferrably something big enough to fall over my lap and keep me warm...

Making soups for dinner, nice thick chunky ones that just need good bread to make a fabulous meal...

Baking... bread, pies, brownies, cookies, cakes... anything...

Curling up in bed (or on the couch) with a good book...

Yay! My glove and arm guard arrived today, so I can officially start target shooting and my folks place more consistently. I've been doing a little off and on, but between tearing up my fingers and twanging my arm, archery is not so much fun when it causes me pain. I'm hoping this lets me really work my consistency, improve my technique and generally help me improve my shooting. Now just keep the weather above 20 degrees and keep the snow off the ground so I can practice for a bit, ok?

I'm under strict orders from Momma to get all of the rest of my stuff out of my old room at their house this weekend, under penalty of I don't know what.


Where am I going to put it?

LJ has given me 2 fabulous (linkable) gigglefests tonight...

Here: http://community.livejournal.com/metaquotes/6881665.html?style=mine#cutid1 (NSFW and potentially offensive dependent on your views, don't say I didn't warn you.)

and Here: http://community.livejournal.com/metaquotes/6881351.html?nc=102&style=mine

And a 3rd post that is not linkable in which a crow bopped another crow off of a power line (or somesuch wire), written with such clarity that I could see the bopper saying "na-na-na-nah-na" to the boppee.

I needed a gigglefest tonight, so three in one evening were quite welcome.

Edit:(I'm aware that I could make the links pretty... I find I'm not in the mood)

So today... I went out pretty much as far north and east as you can go and stay in Wayne County, and then to get particularly adventuresome... I got to go to Ontario county despite the fact that WE DON'T TREAT PATIENTS THERE. Oh yeah, except in this one case, which happened to fall into my lap. Along with the 5 other random "oh we didn't expect those" scenarios. Sheesh.

I remember now.... I'm suffering some dismay because for the past several years, I have performed my pumpkin carving duties with a particular set of knives and scrapers, which have been wonderful to work with. I can't find these particular knives and scrapers now (stupid moving) and pumpkin carving is nearly upon us!


I am going to have to unpack the room from hell this weekend if I even hope to have a chance of finding them in time.

Today seems to be a day for new intentions, for good intentions, for improved attention to detail and follow through on my commitments. I'm not saying it's going to be easy. Hell, look at my journal over the past several years and you'll see this over and over and over again, and I've never made it stick. So.... one day at a time then. Today, I did laundry, took care of some things for Mom, worked on my paperwork. I finished what I was doing by 9:45pm and took the dog out so that I could be uninterrupted at 10 when I was due to spend time with Stu. I've plans for getting up in the morning to manage some more paperwork.

Today was a good day.

Ok, so it's official... I'm taking the hard road, skipping merrily away from the easy road and going for the 14th century Lithuanian concept. Of course this means more research on my part, and some creativity in determining just what a 14th century Lithuanian woman might wear.

McDonald's actually gave me a burger WITH NO PICKLE today, and it was actually reasonably warm. Color me impressed, because this is the first McD's burger I'd ordered in about 6 years because they never managed to pull that off before.

Of course... this event didn't help my supposed fast food abstinence goal any, but it was nice to be pleasantly surprised if I was going to be cheating.

... is ebil. Terribly, horribly, insanely ebil. It has to be the work of the debil, because there is no reason that much tempting stuff should be in one place with that many sale tags.

I did manage to resist temptation, mostly, and only purchased things for which I have a very specific purpose. But... I am not allowed in that store again and NEVER am I allowed to pick up a shopping basket or cart without someone else holding onto my wallet.

... that I've been back in NY for almost 7.5 months and I've only just now had a white pizza. Good grief, how could I have forgotten just how fabulous that was!

It's October. The weather has turned to rainy and not so fun... the dog is particularly unimpressed with this. As a matter of fact, she is now reverting to her, "you can't make me" opinion in regard to potty breaks. Luckily she doesn't last long enough in this resolve to result in messes in the apartment, but it is stressful for both of us. Remind me... when is it going to snow again?
