My hands are sore, I guess I'm paying for the progress I did over the weekend. I did two rows tonight and it was agony (one knit row, one purl), and they're still hurting despite drugs. My hip is bothering me too. Maybe it's time for aleve instead of ibuprofen.

Gee I can't wait until I'm actually old... -_-

Bees. Vicious bees.

And not much in the house for lunches, which has meant buying stuff at loblaws in the morning s the past few days. Yesterday I thought I was doing good by buying a muffin for breakfast instead of a chocolate croissant, but this morning the bakery hadn't restocked yet and I wound up buying day+ old chocolate croissants >.> I ate too many of them. I also bought a mini pot pie and a half pint of raspberries, and the only reason I didn't eat them all was that bees + too much fruit = bad idea.

I am trying to write a blog post for the Day of Archaeology at work, but all I have is short and bland. But there isn't too much going on, so I'm not really sure what to say :p Maybe I'll see if someone else has a chance to look it over.... maybe 'll just give up on it.

Longpig and Wererogue went over to a friends' place this evening, so I managed the smalls. And then I packed, more or less, for LARP. And that's about it?

I actually had some email exchanges with shapers but mostly they left me shaking my head. Did you actually read my background? Did you get my character confused with her daughter? This creepy dream you sent for me to have is really more just sort of bewildering and vaguely unsettling... Anyway, whatever. They have like a million characters to keep track of, I can't really fault them for falling down on the details, I guess? Anyway, it is way past my bedtime, ugh.

Today is a day of intense tiredness. I'd almost blame PM's but the timing is all wrong. Ugh, bodies. Ovulation, maybe? Because I need everything to get more intense, that's just peachy.

Work was fine, tomorrow is our Strategic Retreat, which is a little ominously named, especially since it has the potential to determine my future job prospects... And also the last day of filming.

We had a family meeting to talk about how we need to do better at keeping house... I guess we'll see if that has any impact.

Early bed for me I think. I'm wiped despite a mini-nap earlier.

Took an allegra and a rectine. No hives or faceleaking but I am dumb and sleepy af.

But I got many kitty toes trimmed and had some nice cuddles.

I had 13 today and it was a really good session, I think! I'm so lucky to have so many good engaging games, and such awesome people to RP with in all of them. Also got some knitting done.

Yesterday I brought in the yarn in the cherry bark bath.... and there was nothing, no change at all. I'm super disappointed. It just smells gross now :/ I'm not sure if I should rescour it and go through the whole mordanting process again, or what. Maybe I can try again with some queen anne's lace/wild carrot tops, which are supposed to be green. Maybe bark dyes just don't work with solar dyeing. I dunno, but I am disappointed, boo :(

I need to pick a writing project. I finished all my exchange fics and have freedom to do what I want if I only could decide what that is ;p

Still busy... Mostly packed for LARP...

Of course last night I woke up at 4:30 with a stabbing pain in my back -_- It is betterish but I guess we'll see how things go.

Now reading and sleep...

One of the girls in my knitting group wants to run a pathfinder game! So I let my arm be twisted, and am going to play. It will run bi-weekly on Thursdays opposite of knitting, so basically I just have a permanent Thursday commitment now instead of a bi-weekly one.

We got together to work on character creation this week. I had no idea what I wanted to make, but I wound up with a half-oc cleric of the god(dess? I'm not sure) of gluttony, disease, and undeath. Her mystery is Bones and her curse is Wasting! We had to roll stats (old school!), and she is not very good at anything except being terrifying. In fact her level 1 spells are cause fear and one that I forget the name of that makes someone's face turn into a horrifying monstrosity, giving them both a bonus to intimidate and a bite attack. Yay! I still need a name for her, and to pick a feat (ugh feats), but I think it will be fun :) The rest of the party is a halfling cleric of the goddess of luck, and half-elf rogue who ran away from being a circus performer. So I guess we're a lot of halves ;p Longpig is going to be making a character as well.

Work went well - I had some good conversations and some annoying conversations, but overall things look to be going okay. Hopefully the continue along that path! Next week will be a little odd, because everyone is going to be away in Ottawa for the CAAs. So hopefully I won't have any issues crop up that I can't handle. And then the week after that I have my first aid training! I'm still pretty excited about that too.

I'm feeling much better today, which is to say that the cold is no longer in the front of my face, but taking up residence in my sinuses and trying to take a foothold in my lungs. wooh. So I'm going to go to bed now, which is not super early like yesterday, but still at a more reasonable hour than usual.

G'night!

I am really sock. I have a super shitty cold. I thought that I was past the leaky face bits yesterday - or the day before even - but no, they returned full force around 4 PM, after I'd booked a 10am meeting for tomorrow. I'd felt so much better this morning, but tonight my sinuses are inflamed (really visibly so - my face is red and hot to the touch), and I'm tired and my asthma is acting up. And I can't find my inhaler, it isn't in any of the places it should be /o\ I really don't want this to get in my lungs. I've been doing sinus rinses (gross but better than the alternative) but they only help so much.

Of course this happens when H&I are out of town for two weeks, so I have a lot more stuff that I need to do. No one else is going to walk the dogs or feed me :(

Ugh. I guess I'll see how I'm feeling in the morning, and if need be I can try and reschdule that meeting, but for now I'm just going to take it realllllly easy and hope for the best.

I was going to do a log of how I've been managing to feed myself, but other than Kraft Dinner yesterday I think I'll probably be okay. I can, in fact, remember how to food. I just can't taste any of it -_-

So this meeting tomorrow is to talk about cloud computing solutions for work.... it's going to be a hassle and a half. I need to talk to the campus IT people, too. I probably should have done first. This is gon' be a nightmare :p

Well, here goes I guess! Anyone know anything about cloud computing? :p

Oh oh oh!

Meanwhile, I got *THREE GIFTS* for Space Swap! And they're all excellent. I highly recommend them all :)

Am sick :(

It's been building all day and now I'm in bed listening to Nary read me from the Ahsoka book.

Space Swap opened though. It's super rad. I got 3 gifts! But I will rave about them when I have more brain.

Today was not my favourite day, wellnesswise. I had a LARP/Claritin hangover, plus first day bees, and mostly just slept and laid around like a miserable lump :/

That said, I did watch a lot of SW: Rebels, and we're getting close to the end of season 2 (about 4-5 more episodes). I basically know what happens but I want to see it! Hera and Kanan continue to be my favourites. I'm very confused about their relationship though. In some places it seems to be telegraphed pretty hard, but in others not. And tonight I read an old interview with Hera's VA who said as far as she knew they were not a couple - but that it might just not have been something she was told. But, like, clearly they are a couple? At first I thought it was just that they wanted to keep things sanitized for kids, so they never show either of their quarters it means never showing that they share quarters sort of thing, or that they wanted to keep it very in the background? But then there are things where there's *nothing* where there should at least be *something* - Like Hera gets severely injured and they won't show him holding her hand? Like even if they were really close friends and *not* romantically involved.... Really? (Friends, if I'm even injured and in the hospital, even if we are not romantically involved, it is okay for you to hold my hand and offer me comfort. For the record.) Anyway, it's confusing, and aggravating, because I really like how they are there for each other in lots of ways and damnit I want to see more of that!

I also watched a lot of original Voltron on Netflix.... Some of it is really painfully dated (they literally spank Allura when she tried to pilot the blue lion), but it is interesting to see things they drew on for the new show. One of the things I love that they do, and always helped garner some nostalgia feels from me, is the shots with multiple PoVs in the same shot, and the sort of fade-to-line art stuff. That was always something I associated with Voltron, and it makes me smile when I see it in the new show as well.

Anyway, sleepos time!
