Too fucking hilarious. Courtesy of

Joined a new community [profile] invisiblyill That's invisibly ill, for people with illnesses that aren't readily obvious. There's a lot of coping required of people who have problems that aren't visible to the general public.  Not to mention the coping required to deal with each of the illnesses.  Strange how many people have multiple problems, sometimes one brought on by another.  You can learn a lot from LJ. 

In other news, there is no news.  Still trying to get the same stack of stuff off my desk that's been here for over a week.  Why, you ask? Because I can't find a shit to give and only do something to one or two pieces of stuff before I go back to spider, or back to LJ, or back to yahoo.  

And no, I have no comment about Heath Ledger, except it's a shame to see another young star gone.  I think enough has been said by others.

I'm alive. I don't have any faith that I will be able to say all I want in the 20 minutes left here at the office. I haven't typed in so long that my error ratio has been HORRENDOUS today.  My hands are going to sleep all the time, this year might be the year of carpal tunnel, much as last year was the year of blood pressure. 

Still internet-less at home, will be for at least another payday or two. Don't care, except that I MISS YOU PEOPLE! OMG I miss you so much!  I've gone to several journals to catch up, but haven't hit everyone yet.  I will do better next week because my boss will be out of town four days. 

I recieved a stunning tennis bracelet with a heart shaped charm on the latch for Christmas from Brent. The charm has a tiny ruby set in it, and I love it very muchly. I know I'd implied I was expecting jewelry of another sort.  But he is not ready for that. I am quite confused right now, I might not be ready either. Time will tell.

I have a new cat at my house.  She doesn't have a name yet, won't answer to ANYthing, and is a bossy little bitch. I think I'm going to call her Goldie, she has wonderful gold highlights in her fur.  She is marked like a bobcat or some sort of wild cat. And she's pregnant. Should drop her kitten-load in a week or so.   That's another wait and see situation - Leigh says she has home for at least 3 kittens (I think) and I'm sure we won't have trouble placing any of them.  However, I can't keep 3 adult cats.  So there will be some home-finding later, probably in March or so. 

I've drawn a blank. I'm so overwhelmed with information, and so aggravated that my fingers are numb, that I can't think of anything else left to say.  So I will return to reading your journals and trying to catch up on my email.  I had 138 emails in my Yahoo account this afternoon, and 104 at work.  I love being missed!!

I got my ears pierced today at lunch - second holes.  Didn't hurt as much as it has in the past and I'm grateful.  I have all these great stud and tiny hoop earrings with sapphires, etc., and I never wear them because I don't wear any small earrings in my main holes. My face is absolutely too round to do that. So now I have a way to wear all those nice expensive-looking earrings without going chub.  Brent has been commenting when I wear my hair up, he likes it that way, so my ears are more visible these days.  (I'm not doing it every day though because it gives me a headache, and might be part of the cause of the TMJ issue.)  

So I sit here twisty-turning my little hearts.  Scarlett will be surprised.

I am the princess in the tower.

Sharp pain in my right TMJ all night, don't know where that came from, but my god it was a bitch. Abdominal pain, know where that came from, no less a bitch.  Feel like shit, so I decided to stay home today.  I have more gas in my car, so I let Brent take it, and he locked me in as he left. I felt so safe and secure.  And unable to travel, as I do not have his key to his rental nor do I now have a key to my own home. 

Thus I am locked in, like the princess in the tower.

First full surly gurly day, so I'm glad I'm staying home.  The first two are usually the worst.  I'm going to have to turn on the t.v. or some music, because the idiot upstairs has ONCE AGAIN left his alarm clock on and forgotten to come home. He must be getting LOTS of pootang, because he never seems to sleep here.  The only reason I notice is because that damned clock starts going off and no one is there to stop it.  

I'm going to do laundry today, and another load of dishes.  And I'm going to eat, dammit.  Poor Brent took sandwiches for lunch. I didn't cook last night, I wasn't up to it, and I am running out of groceries again.  Eating is expensive. 

The cats are fighting something fierce.  It's weird. Although they are approximately the same size, I know that Suzi, the long haired one, eats less than Mitzi. She will actually step back from a full bowl if she thinks Mitzi might want the food. It's driving Brent nuts because of his sense of justice. Mitzi gets more, and that's how Suzi appears to want it. I don't know if their tussles are over food or house dominance or just exercise. But Mitzi was actually huffing during this last fight.  It's no wonder that the vets said Suzi was six months younger than Mitzi. She must not be developing as quickly since she's not eating as much.

Scarlett and I were in the car by eight a.m. to hit the local radio station yard sale. We walked for two hours, maintaining connection by cell phones, and spent entirely too much money.  

We came home, and I rested and plotted the remainder of the day. Called and confirmed with Brent, then got started in the kitchen. I had pasta cooking in the microwave and hot dog chili cooking on the stove while ironing patches on my jeans. Yes. All at the same time.  Seriously.  If I hadn't forced myself to eat around noon, I probably wouldn't have bothered until we had hotdogs at three. I couldn't begin to explain why I had no appetite today, but I didn't. 

I showered, finished a load of clothes and packed the cooler and the car. We left several things behind, but picked them up on the way.  Picked up Brent, and headed to the park. We had a VERY good time just hanging out under the trees while Scarlett walked all the paths, fed the geese and hit the swings, then we cooked.  Brent has been going on about Scarlett's vocabulary and ingenious behavior since three p.m. (and yes it's now eleven) 

Scarlett wanted to fish, but of course we had no poles, so she made one. Found some fishing twine, a long stick, a couple of heavy items to use as floaters, and a goose down feather as bait. She had the best time with that pole. My cousin Carole brought her 3 year old daughter Autumn to the park for an hour or so, but Autumn fell, and was quite tired - so Carole took her home. Turned out when Autumn fell she broke her wrist, and they were just getting home from the hospital at about ten this evening. 

I dumped the hot coals onto the ground so I could transport my grill back home. They were glowing and smoking, so I attempted to scatter and stomp the ashes - while wearing my thong sandals. Stupid ass me. I now have a blister under my right big toe. 

We took Brent home at about six and headed back here. We've been watching t.v. and playing on the computer, dragging out toys and generally being laz-abouts. 

A wonderful day indeed. 

There will be brunch at the Marriott tomorrow with some family members, because my mother is out of town until Monday. She is a bit pissed about that, since she'll be spending Mother's Day with her step-children. Eh. Sometimes the husband wins, even when the battle is all in his head. My toe hurts. I'm goin' to bed.
