Because of the Impending!Snow!Doom!, I ended up with a snow day today. To be fair, the roads were pretty bad last night. On the drive home, we saw four accidents with a sum total of 22 cars and two spin-outs. I'm also not going to complain about a paid day off.

I decided to make the most of the day and tackled our bedroom, which has been a wreck pretty much since we moved in. We'd gone to IKEA yesterday and I saw and promptly fell in love with a bed with sheer curtains around it. I bought them, but I didn't want to put them up until the room was moderately cleaner.

We actually went to IKEA yesterday to look for a storage solution for down here. It is literally impossible to have the place look presentable because we have no place to out anything. There are bins stacked everywhere, our clothes are stacked, even when clean and folded, and things are all over the place. We have three racks, one of which makes up a wall in our bedroom space and two that have Christ knows what on it. It's not mine, as far as I know.

I'm not exactly sure what we're going to get yet. I should probably take pictures and post to [ profile] saucyhelp or see if there's an IKEA comm or something. This is my first experience with studio living, so I'm really out in left field.

We spend $100 at Trader Joe's yesterday, as well. We had run out of literally everything we'd had. We haven't been eating fish at all because it's too expensive to buy fish and, honestly, I don't really want to drive to Warwick to try and find the Trader Joe's there. They had langoustine tails for a really good price, so we added those into our frozen fish stock up. Really, I should just stop by and buy a few things each time we're up in the area. What matters, though, is I now have lots of fish to eat and all is good in the world. I also have wheat pane bread, naan bread, and all kinds of other goodies too.

I finally put one of our wedding photos in a frame. I had an extra from when I made Steven's anniversary gift and it fit nicely in a Mikasa frame someone gave us.

I bought some chewable melatonin to see if that will help with my insomnia.

I started a 365 journal, as well. I'm very productive right now. The only thing I didn't get done today was our taxes, but I'll do them at some point this week.

1) Look at the list and put an 'x' after those you have read.
2) Add a '+' to the ones you LOVE.
3) Add a '-' to the ones you HATE.
4) Star (*) those you plan on reading.
5) Tally your total here = 66

Still getting over the death flu/pneumonia which is almost at the end of it's third full week. No more vomiting aside Friday the 6th's three bouts of it. It went through the school like wildfire–parents, teachers, everyone. It seems to be making a second round, which I hope to avoid.

The worst lingering feeling is the complete lack of appetite. I've been unable to eat real meals since. Right now, my meal schedule looks like: 16oz of OJ for breakfast, a small amount of what's leftover from lunch (ie. 1 slice of meatloaf, a small scoop of roasted potatoes, and a small scoop of green beans), and pop-tarts for dinner. That's eating when I'm hungry and that's enough to full me up. Poptarts are on there because they're one of the things I can look at and not feel queasy.

The antibiotics I'm taking for the pneumonia is making me feel craptacular and dizzy. I'm very bleh all day. The coughing is still around and when I breathe in, my lungs squeak. I'm constantly tired.

The only bonus is that I'm down a pant size and then a little extra. I might as well get something positive out of this.

More on Fiddler later. I need to get to bed now.

Dear [ profile] nyhamsterhouse,

You've jinxed me. I have pneumonia too.

Dear Cat:

We seemed to have reached another impasse, Cat. It seems, in the last few weeks, you have decided that if I get within 5 feet of you, I am going to develop fangs and EAT YOUR SOUL. This is not true, but since it keeps you out from underfoot in the Unholy Early™, I am also not inclined to really make an effort to change your mind.

I am ok if you want to be down here. I am mostly ok if you want to loiter around the bathroom. I am not pleased about your potty drinking; I know this has been a past issue. But Cat, this morning was REALLY the last straw.

Not only were you in the bathroom, not only were you crouched like a gargoyle on my toilet but when I walked by, YOU HISSED AT ME LIKE I WAS GOING TO STEAL YOUR PRECIOUS POTTY WATER.

First, I was not even going in the bathroom. I just about to leave for work. But seriously, really? Where do you get off hissing at me ON MY TOILET? If it were your food bowl, I could understand. If I were feeding you something and tried to take it back, fine, BUT IT IS A TOILET! It is my toilet.

I am going to start shutting the bathroom door, Cat, if this keeps up. Despite what you think, this is not a Very Large Cat Palace. While the bathroom may contain a throne, it is not Goddammit's Throne Room. You have your own litterbox, you don't need to commandeer mine.

V-DAY: Steven and I have tickets to see Fiddler on the Roof with Topol as Tevye. I cannot begin to express how psyched I am, considering this was what the musical was my senior year. This shall totally be the best VDay EVER.

I don't even care if we have to scarf noodles from takeaway before. I AM THRILLED!

I am breaking up with Battlestar. Tonight's episode literally had me yelling "What the fuck!?!?!?" at the television. HOW IS IT YOU CAN END THERE! I NEED MOAR.

Ep was kind of blah. I know it was set-up, but meh. I am still all about how awesome Starbuck is, though. No pity frak for you, Gaeta.

Is it next Friday yet?

70 Qs )
devilgrrl: (Default)

We're watching the rewatch at midnight because I'm sure that I missed at least some subtle nuances, but damn... I will have to say, though, I'm not really surprised about any of the revelations nor who the Fifth is. They were Steven's and my first guess, really starting, I think, around the end of season 3. Nice reveal, though.

I am kind of annoyed by the high levels of desaturation in early part of the ep. Yes, post-apocolypse, blah blah blah, but when I'm trying to figure out if a scene is in black and white or colour, someone in editing is a tad heavy handed. Also, holy shit, how cold must filming on the beach in November have been?

5 Things Meme )

You know how sometimes people on your friend's list post about stuff going on in their life, and all of a sudden you think "Wait a minute? Since when are they working THERE? Since when are they dating HIM/HER? Since when???" And then you wonder how you could have missed all that seemingly standard information, but you feel too ashamed to ask for clarification because it seems like info you *should* already know? It happens to all of us sometimes.
