Have a gnarly respiratory infection, and am currently taking a cavalcade of drugs, which is quite the experience. Cough syrup knocks me out, steroids make me hyper and have hot flashes. And hungry. CONSTANTLY. *sigh*  The antibiotics don't seem to do much of anything except make me better, so that's something at least.

Hunter games going well. The one in the game with Bag-Head, if she plays her cards right she can hook up with at LEAST one member of a ska band who wear kilts and sneakers and nothing else. This is delightful for her. Deirdre continues to delight, even though she got attacked last night. MYSTERIOUS HAUNTED KNIFE! :D

Books and books and Dragon Age Awakening, and some Folklore. This is what I am doing in my spare time. Which there is a lot of because boss is moving to Austin, so I will be jobless come May. Fucking sucks, man. I loved this job.

Things to buy next time I hit up the asian supermarket:

  1. japanese curry

  2. flavored shredded nori

  3. MORE gyoza: I want a stockpile of this stuff

  4. sesame oil

  5. different furikake



what else. Oh yeah, Dave's been on vacation this week so we've been hanging out a lot. Things are better. I am both sad and glad to see him go back to work on Monday. Sad because it's nice having him around, but glad because I can watch stupid movies and knit without disrupting his videogaming. (which is usually entertaining, but he's been playing Forza 2, and really, that gets boring quick, spectator-wise.) Next movie Dave doesn't like on my list is rewatching Hellboy - it will be nice to be able to fast forward through the scenes of unmasked Clockwork Nazi Ninja. Eyaaaagh.

Was considering getting an Audible account, but they don't have any of the audio books from one of my fav authors, so now I'm like, "eeeeeeh, no." Which is kinda sad, since Audible is a pretty good deal. Ah well, tis not to be.

Day 3 of the no-knitting ban, AND I'm out of fabric to make things with. Also no books to read I haven't read a zillion times. ALAS. I go crazy cause WANT to knit! Am even working on things that I will get paid for! And I can't! God damn wrists! And I can't wear the braces either - the way the swelling went it hurts to wear the brace. blaaaaaargh!

I would watch Stargate what I have downloaded, only I can't cause Dave wants to watch it too.

can't really play videogames because holding the controllers puts stress on my wrists. I can KINDA play Pokemon, but that twists my wrists wrong too.

I go crazy now, k?

also a random aside - would anyone on here be willing to buy an old (like 4 years, I think) HP laptop? I think the power jack needs to be replaced, but otherwise it works fine.about laptop ) I'm sure nobody's really interested in a somewhat broked laptop, but I figured I'd offer.

Reason I stopped getting up at 9am - it's 2:43 and I've run out of things to do today. I could go sit and play Catan or some other videogame, but my wrists are hurting so I prolly shouldn't. God today has just dragged the fuck along.

Uh. My life has been wholly uninteresting these past few days. Still in a funk, but Oh well. Nothing I can do about it but wait for it to pass. Tried applying for a couple at home telecommute jobs (data entry) on monday but haven't heard anything back. Likely I never will. Mom's office is looking for a tester, but they won't be hiring for a couple more weeks yet, and even then I don't know if they'd let me do it telecommute. I am extremely uncomfortable riding the bus to that area of downtown, but I don't live remotely near any of the other employees. So I will likely not get that job either.

I'm sure I've mentioned before how doing the whole jobsearch thing makes me reaaaaally reaaaaaaally depressed? Yeah.

I have decided Dave and I need another couch, that way we can both sprawl out at once. The recliner is good, but it's good for comfy sitting, not laying about.

Am finally tired after spending all day being both restless and sick, and having not gotten much sleep last night. Could play videogames, but I'd rather just lay down and shut off my brain.

The trouble with Dave playing pokemon is that I can't watch - IE, he takes up the couch and plays that, and I get no entertainment from it. Granted, I could be playing my own copy, but I'm too tired for the leveling right now. I wish he'd play gears of war or something entertaining for bystanders.

god it's only 8:30 and I am so bored and tired. alas.

Can you believe I am not playing Viva Pinata, though Dave is not home and there's not much else to do? I think it's mostly there's things I want to accomplish in the game, but I don't feel like sitting around waiting while things occur in game time. Alas. Maybe I will play more Enchanted Arms, though the prospect seems dim. I could sew or knit or something. I'm a little too tired to want to sit and watch something, for fear I would fall asleep during it. I could read but that runs into the same "But I'll prolly fall asleep" problem.

agh. Dave is stuck at work on some thing, and I hate to go to bed before he gets home, but I is so tired. And Sly is no help, he is crashed out in Dave's computer chair. He has been really lazy today, and apart from lots of "helping" with a sewing project this morning/early afternoon, he's been snoozing. Happily though he's been snoozing in the special cat-house/bed we got him, since he has such a fondness for enclosed spaces where he can hide and sleep (under a pile of sheets and blankets, under the edge of my comforter that trails on the floor, under my low asian table). Also I is hungry cause we don't have much groceries what I hadn't already eaten for lunch, and I didn't have enough cash to go get food. I managed to scrounge up enough random snackish food to fill me up (sorta) but agh. And we had sort of actual plans for the evening, and those were shot. :( I is an unhappy moogle.

[EDIT, 1:05 AM] this is depressing. my entire contact list is in bed. there's nobody to talk to, AND I'm hungry, AND I'm even more tireder and more depressed and blagh. And Sly keeps insisting in his squeaky boy-cat voice that it is Bed-time, and why am I not in bed, in the bedroom, where the beds are? But I don't want to go to bed and have Dave come home to darkened apartment and me snoring and being generally unwelcoming.

[EDIT, 2:00 AM] Dave is coming home and getting me a burger. hooray food then sleep and boyfriend! bed is less awesome without snuggles.

I am torn. My mother much espouses the wonders of the Yahoo Launchcast, and from what I could see of it it does look pretty awesome. The kicker, however, is it doesn't work with Firefox. At all. it gives me a message saying it doesn't work with Netscape (wtf) on Widows, thxbai. Which means I would have to use the dreaded IE. *shudder* So for the moment I am making do with the Winamp radio stations (which can be somewhat .... varied... in quality.)

Note to self : when home for christmas get dolls and find the box of wee stuffed animals. Then find them homes at the apartment. Miss having the dolls and their hair to play with.

am at a loss as to what to do with myself for the next few days. Tendons are sore from knitting too much, to the point where holding the ps2 controller is kinda painful after a while. I guess I'm stuck reading for the next few days. Maybe I can find some things I haven't read umpteen million times. ... maybe. I might have to see if Dave's got anything I'd like.

I love my new icon. I wish it would work in the real world for an excuse not to do things. Heh.

Also hooraaaay the wonderfully expressive faces in that movie! WOO. If you can't tell my wrist is feeling much better, thank you, and I haven't even taken any ibuprofen today. The brace and the periodic icing seems to have calmed it down. I am however about to die of boredom. It does not help that I found a pattern for some awesome cute knitted doll-things yesterday. I am going to hope the hot water has returned by now and attempt a shower again.
