So it looks like the reason why I've had little to no energy this week is that I was fighting off a cold. I found that out when I woke up this morning with an achy throat and a stuffy head. Bleh. But at least now I know. I'll make sure to drink plenty of juice and tea this weekend.

[livejournal.com profile] lucifrix is coming up to stay with me, YAY! We shall watch DVDs and crappy New Year's weekend marathons and eat food that tastes good but is horrible for us and yay!

I won't be online much due to that, so in case I don't get a chance later: Happy new year one and all!

It's the weekend before Xmas! There shall be many creatures stirring in my house. I've got 8 dishes to prepare before Xmas day. I've split it into four and four so I hopefully don't go insane in the meanwhile. On the upside I've got a new iPod so I'll use that to listen to Xmas music as I work.

I'm hearing all sorts of noise from next door which suggests that possibly my new neighbor is in the building. At some point I would love to meet her but not so much today when I'm wearing sweats and a sports bra and am busy with baking ;)

Luna is curled up next to me right now and would like to know why I feel this need to stand when I could be staying on the couch and snuggling with her.

Anyhoo, I'm off. I'll be aroundish but busy, so any delays on email and tags and the like shall be due to that.

Am sick.

Took day off work.

Now going to curl up and not do a whole heck of a lot.

If quiet today, that's why.

Power went out to all of downtown where I live. This means while I have power, starting one block away from me they do not.

One town over just lost power due to the storm overhead.

Storm's coming this way.

Should be a fun night.

*clings to AC*

Am at work now. Do not and will not have computer on tonight due to all the electricity issues (They're asking us to conserve.) Ironically for the heat, I'm getting a lot of knitting done.

Tomorrow I've got a doctor's appointment. Assuming he hasn't lost power by then.

Hopefully I'll see y'all when I wake up tomorrow.

So far my Blackberry is working fine though, for any who want to txt me. =)

So apparently we're having power issues in my hometown. Tonight shall be a quiet night of trying not to use more electricity than I have to, and hoping like heck the AC doesn't go out.

*fingers crossed*
thebratqueen: Captain Marvel (Alma at window)
As a fair warning to all, one of the results of my doc's appointment yesterday was an adjustment to the meds I'm taking. The last time we did this I ended up being zombie-like for about a week due to the side effects. Today's day 1 of the change and it looks like that's happening again.

So if I'm slow on various things, that would be why.
thebratqueen: Captain Marvel (Seasonal)
I think I'm finally coming down from all the craziness of the holidays. Not that I didn't enjoy it, don't get me wrong, but it's a marathon of stuff to do that starts weeks before Christmas and doesn't end until... well right about now.

New Year's was spent with [livejournal.com profile] lucifrix who joined me in knitting, DVD marathons of MST3K, The Daily Show, and Arrested Development. There was also cooking with waffles, Chicken Paprikash, and the saltiest brunch casserole ever. The scariest thing about the casserole is that it was from a Cooking Light recipe that had been prodded and tweaked so that it would be lower in sodium. It's terrifying to think of what kind of a salt lick the family who submitted the original recipe had been eating.

My grandmother has been moved out of the hospital and into a rehab place where she'll learn how to sit, stand, walk, and so forth. As you might imagine this has caused no family drama whatsoever.

My boss is away this week. After a week of him being in a pissy mood due to pre-vacation stress and the phone ringing off the hook thanks to the start of the month and the start of the year, I'm ready for some peace and quiet. I've got tomorrow off in exchange for working on Martin Luther King Day. I'm also taking at least one other day off this week and I suspect it'll be Tuesday just so I can get a nice long stretch of relaxation in.

I'm also feeling vaguely productive so that stretch of time allows me to do things like take the Xmas tree down, reorganize my pantry, run some errands that've been on hold for forever, redo my budget now that my income and expenses have changed with the new year and see if I can afford a Blackberry and so on.

Or I'll just crash like I've been doing the past couple of days. We'll see.

I'd also like to give a shout out to [livejournal.com profile] amaliedageek for the great books she sent me.

Also to answer the question I've been getting a lot this week: Yes there will be more Pet and Protocol. Just not while my life's insane with things like family members in hospitals and such. But soon.

Had little sleep.

Coming down with sore throat.

Went to work anyway.

Grams is still in the ER.

Clearly mulligan taken on yesterday was no good.

Apologies to anybody I owe anything to (email reply, RP tag, comment reply, etc.) but going on amazingly little energy at the moment.

Thanks for the replies to the last post.

Further updates as I know them.

Not dead

I've had a total of five emails today from very nifty people asking if I was still alive. The sheer numbers of this makes me suspect that someone has attempted to organize a search party.

So, to help out with that - *waves* - here I am!

Sorry for the radio silence. The health stuff took some interesting highs and lows in the past couple of weeks. Then on the fannish front I've got the final episode of No Limits staring me down, so a good chunk of my time's been going into that.

My sanity has either been kept in place because of, or in spite of, dicking around on Fandom High in the spare moments of what resembles free time.

And that's about it from me. Oh, except that this morning I discovered the special joy of not finding out your milk has gone bad until after you put it into your tea. And drink a sip. Ew. Just ew. Now I have trauma. And it was before the sell by date and everything!

Anyway, much past my bedtime, but since another one of the letters came in just as I was going to bed I figured I'd do a quick post.

thebratqueen: Captain Marvel (Daddy's home)
So it has come to my attention that when I do a post mentioning some health problems, then vanish off of the face of the earth that apparently makes people a wee bit nervous. Sorry! Didn't mean to!

Basically last week was me not operating at full capacity. I don't know if it's related to the health thing (as I just started a new med) or if it was sheer coincidence, but the end result was that I was sleeping horribly and along with, or perhaps because of, that I was feeling incredibly spacey and disconnected. I could dick around on things like [livejournal.com profile] fandomhigh because that didn't require too much brainpower, but doing anything more than that was all clicks and buzzes.

Fortunately the spacey feeling seemed to be going away as of yesterday. Sleep's still not as great as it could be (waaaaay too vivid dreams. And [livejournal.com profile] stakebait? I have no idea why the phrase "Pony. Teapot." would have meaning for you but apparently it does. You do not wear the pony teapot, the pony teapot wears you.) but at least the brain actually feels like it's still inside of my skull.

So my apologies for being the incredible vanishing girl. Hugs and glomps and gropes to everybody that needs them. And a belated happy birthday to B, the No Limits webmaster extraordinare, without whom you could not read our virtual season. And with whom I will undoubtedly be sharing a few heart attacks over getting the season finale just so. ;)

Oh - and if anybody has pictures of Alexis at the Emmies you will have my undying love if you send them on. I've seen the ones of David already, but none of Alexis. Granted I'm assuming he was there since Aly was. I could be wrong.
thebratqueen: Captain Marvel (no limits)
Was out tonight with a family thing, so I'm late with the post. There's a new [livejournal.com profile] ats_nolimits live on the website. It was written by [livejournal.com profile] wesleysgirl and [livejournal.com profile] janedavitt. Give 'em much love.

My apologies to anybody who's waiting on email, comments, etc. from me. I'm having a very spacey kind of week and I don't know if that's from health stuff or something else. Hopefully my brain will come back to me at some point. Or what passes for my brain, at the very least ;)

Super Sekrit message to people I was talking to not so long ago: Big storm, thunder, lightening, world go boom, electricity at work go off. Decided to take that as a sign to leave in spite of the downpour and scurried on my wet and merry way.
thebratqueen: Captain Marvel (Default)
Okay all, I'm in my last minute countdown before leaving for Philly. I'll be away from LJ until I get back, which'll be sometime on Friday.

Be good! (Or at least take pictures if you're naughty!)
thebratqueen: Captain Marvel (Default)
Eating dinner helped a bit with the total lack of energy, but not by much. Even so I was able to get a little writing done. It's a bit for [livejournal.com profile] angelusverse, as one of the charity requests I have is for Angelus/Wes and for that I do need to do a bit of telling one story so I can tell another.

Sadly did not finish it tonight, though. Got about halfway there and then the brain just gave out.

Have finally decided to give up and call it a night.

So... night!
thebratqueen: Captain Marvel (Default)
Okay, got pretty much everything done that I can do tonight except shower and go to sleep. Tomorrow will be waking up early and presumably all the last minute stuff that go with it.

So consider this me signing off for now! I'm pretty sure Elder Brother does not have access at his house, so slim chance of me checking LJ or email over the weekend. If I get a chance to do phone posts - and have anything interesting to say - I'll try, but last time I was out there my cell got zero reception.

So if you don't hear from me until Tuesday, that's why.

Have a good weekend everybody!

Just to give the heads-up here, out of fairness to those who have already promised to make donations I won't be taking any new writing requests until the current stack has been cleared. Believe me when I say I would love to write a million stories if I could, but I just don't feel comfortable making people wait longer than they have to. At this rate, even if I manage a story a day (which I might not necessarily be able to) it's still going to take a little time. Getting those done is my top priority, though. With luck I'll be able to get through them toute de suite.

In case I don't get a chance to say it later, happy new year one and all!

Looks like there won't be a cabaret belly dance update for this week. I don't know why, but in the past few hours my body chemistry has taken a sudden turn south. I suspect oncoming migraine, given the nausea and the way I was reacting to people's headlights on the way home. So this is me, taking the night off.

On the plus side I've got Daria on my Tivo, thanks to Noggin and the wonders of digital cable. Also, [livejournal.com profile] ressearchminion and [livejournal.com profile] kita0610 have both, in their own way, been amusing me with RPS stuff. What else could a girl want?

Other than, perhaps, some peptol bismol. Bleargh. Yeah, def. staying home tonight. Tracy? Figure you'll still be getting your outline tomorrow night, as if I was going to class anyway. I don't think I've got the brainpower for it right now.
thebratqueen: Captain Marvel (goldsting)
The whole email down/being sick thing blows. Though I've since been told that I'm not the only one who's gotten sick like this. Which means my misery certainly has company, if not productivity.

Still undecided on whether or not I like gmail. I'm giving myself time to get acclimated before making the final call. In the meanwhile, I think the safest thing for anybody to do is email me via my LJ address, because that will always point to whatever email location I'm actually using at the time.

Am a wee bit behind on about a thousand things thanks to the email downage and the health downage, so my apologies for delays in email replies and other responses that I owe people. I'll do what I can to get caught up. In the meanwhile expect me to be a bit quiet out here in LJ land and the like, since the time to catch up has gotta come from somewhere.

And now I'm back to work!

Outgoing email is still down. Incoming email seems okay. Tried to call tech support and found out that when they say the tech support is available "24/7" they don't mean in a row.

I've got to go out for most of the day anyway, but just wanted to give the update for those who are still waiting to hear from me.

Stupid down email.


Sep. 11th, 2004 08:14 pm
thebratqueen: Captain Marvel (goldsting)
Apparently my email has been down all day. I wrote some emails to people this morning and they haven't gone out yet. No clue if this also means that I'm not getting email either, though I'd imagine if outgoing mail is down, so is incoming.

No brainpower to deal with customer service at the moment, so my apologies for the delay in communication and hopefully it will be fixed by tomorrow.
