To my amusement, I found out the other day there is a sizeable subsection of Boy's family that is very devoutly religious christian. And apparently it rather bother's them that Boy and I live together but aren't married. Boy's mother warned me of this because Thanksgiving is coming and we were working out who was going where. They apparently ask her many the hilarious and awkward question, and she wanted to spare me the same treatment.  I am kind of relieved. Most everyone's family I know quite likes me and it is kind of a relief to know I bother SOMEBODY.

I do so want "Living in Sin!" on a t-shirt.

Happily, my own family doesn't seem to care at all.

Friday: Discovered much to my dismay that fried foods REALLY don't like me (woe), then when I was feeling better went over to Will's for an evening of Drunk Fighter(Street Fighter Drinking game: Take a drink every time you win a match). While I didn't drink due to recently upset tummy, Boy got ROYALLY and MAGNIFICENTLY smashed. Which was fine until we got home at 4am and he proceeded to start on being VERY violently ill and then hung over. So I was up till 6 am pulling sickie duty until he could get to sleep.

Saturday: Woke up around 11am. Went to check on Boy (who was camped on the couch for fear of movement). Still miserable. Spent the afternoon nursing him back to humanity. around 5 he was capable of food again. Headed out to Sherman around 6pm(with Boy's blessing) for a 1-shot Hunter: the Vigil campaign. (shut up. When run well White Wolf doesn't give me hives.) Had a great deal of fun dealing with cultists and demons and Zombies. Game wrapped up around 6:45am. loaded up on coffee and drove home. Got home around 8am. Was so tired it hurt to move by that point. Stumbled to bed and passed out.

Sunday: Woke up at noon. Still tired but developing a headache so the best cure was to get up and do. Since I had to cancel Mom and my's lunch plans on Saturday due to needing to take care of Boy, IM'd Mom and said we could try again today, but I am very sleep lacking so I may be kind of goofy. Headed out to Mesquite with her with season 1 of Burn Notice. Ate, went back to the house for SPIES, SPOOKS, and HILARITY, and I'm pretty sure I passed out on the couch for a bit. Went back to Richardson, grabbed food since Boy was on a Raid and I would not want to go out again or cook, and came home and crashed.

I am feeling better today, but lawsy. The kitchen's a mess and I am STARVING. I guess I should get on that.

Mom has lent me Carnivale to watch and I am thus-far enamored. She explained the basic plot to me and then was like "And the Kurgan's the Priest! :D" to which I boggled. (Highlander is on my mother's yearly rewatch list along with Conan, Terminator, The Princess Bride, and Last Crusade) So anyway I was listening to him talk (and watching) and I was like "... I know that deep charming and persasive yet slightly menacing voice. .... LEX LUTHOR OMG!!!" And that actor did/does indeed play Lex Luthor in the animated DC universe.

Man I hope I get to laze around tomorrow. Boy's sister is in town and we've been out with her every night for the past 4 days.  I am all sociable'd out. Not that I begrudge her the time, she does live in Washington and can only come down once a year, but still.  I am not used to this much social activity. Structured social activity anyway.

The moon has been pretty.

It is amazing how sweet boy can be when he wants to be. Random hug attacks ftw.

It's not until I am listening to it (or discussing it with my Mother the Writer) that I really notice Terry Pratchett writes some seriously beautiful prose amidst the insightful looks into the way people work and the satire and all. I was listening to Going Postal (unabridged) and there was a section about the clacks towers that actually made me stop what I was doing and just listen intently to the art of words.

I am full of food and in that head-foggy state I get in when I've got a migraine but it is medicated into enough submission I am no longer miserable. Everything's kind of disconnected. It does not help that I have a had a kind of mental low-day wherein I am at a loss to work up the gumption to eat, let alone do anything other than sit or lie around. I ran errands earlier due to sudden ant infestation. Now that my head's gone foggy it's time to throw in the towel and just lie down and listen to my audiobooks and likely sleep.

Hopefully tomorrow will be better as Dave's sister is in town and she's coming over tomorrow. Gotta think of some Vegetarian/vegan friendly places we can take her. Damn that that sushi roll place was in Irving, it was so good.

I have not yet heard back about the Fry's job, and they said they'd call me last night if I was selected, so I guess that means I didn't get it. I am both pissed and rather depressed over it.

To add to that, yesterday my Grandmother fell down and banged her head pretty hard - apparently there was some slight internal skull bleeding, but it has gone away. She's gonna be in the hopital a few days though for observation. Thankfully she didn't break anything, but she had to have a bunch of stitches in her lip and she's got a black eye.

Today's weather seems a rather good reflection of my mood, so I'm gonna lay around and read, prolly. Sly is happy I am staying home today.

So Mom's mother's day present consisted of a secondhand computer from Larry's place of work. It came with the install cd for XP professional. I brought it over, put in the wireless card she'd bought in hopes of getting it to work with her ancient win98 computer(which it didn't), installed XP, and did a good portion of the windows updates. I am a good daughter! :D Now mom is happy that she has a personal-not-give-by-work computer and it is a nice one she can do writing on, AND it has XP professional and she didn't have to buy it. I think all it needs at this point (and not urgently) is more RAM.

... But mostly I'm amused she named the computer Hiro. She's a big fan of Heroes.

In other news I am possibly the most depressed I've been in a really long time for a variety of reasons, most of which I don't want to talk about. Suffice to say all I want to do is sit around and knit or curl up and read. The bad part is I want to knit on really stupid easy shit, but i hafta work on more complicated stuff.

Grandpa passed away last night around 1 am. He was home, comfortable, and with his family.

I believe the funeral is Thursday. I'm staying with Mom till then, at least.

I haven't even been able to go visit grandma yet for fear I'll fly apart at the seams. They don't expect me to be there, because they know I'm real fragile, especially about death these days.

I'm glad I decided to come stay with mom when I did.

Things have gone rather quickly downhill with Grandpa in the last week or two. He's now on hospice care, which means he's dying and they're going to do all they can to make him as comfortable as possible. I am not a wreck simply because I am doing my best to not think about it. It's not healthy but I'm afraid I will just collapse if I let it in. I had a mini panic attack a few days ago, and I've been bursting into tears randomly. My family, I love them lots, is doing their best to let me know they love me and I don't have to be there if I don't think I can handle it. I know I can't handle the hospital. I don't know if I can handle going to visit him once he's home without having full blown attack.

I'm at mom's, and will be for several days, since I don't want her to be by herself right now, and worrying about her keeps me from freaking out.

I don't want to talk about it. I just wanted to let people know that I'm not quite right right now and why, and this is why I'm acting funny. Also that I'm going to be at mom's.

an update on grandpa: He's had a setback. One of his painkillers is primarily used to prevent seizures, but a side-effect of the drug was to cause swelling, which caused his stump to swell, making him unable to use his prosthetic. He stopped taking it, and he started having small seizures every so often very quickly after stopping taking it. After a quick consult with the doctor, he got a brain scan the next day added on to his scheduled doctor visit. Turns out the tumor in his brain has grown a little, which was causing the seizures. He'll be undergoing radiation for the next month or two and they'll scan again, and hopefully it will have stopped growing, and they're hoping the other tumors in his body will have been killed or whatnot. This is bad, but not horribly bad yet, so we're all crossing our fingers and hoping for the best. It was a GOOD thing he stopped taking that medicine, or they wouldn't have noticed the growth for a while.
