sabre23t: Nodes to node

I noded Antietam today. I love doing these in depth American Cival War nodes. The sites I'm using to put out these condensed histories are so deep. Tactical maps of every hour of the battlefield and all that. I've been on vacation, and I've dedicated several hours a day to Civil War history and e2 -- a good time.

Tomorrow I go to Peoria for a job interview.

*whistle*

We'll see.

All right, Monsieur LeFarge, I 'ave only one bag without 'oles left. That means you are allowed to make only one poop, then we come inside. If you make more than one poop they must all be made in the same spot so the bag can be used to clean them all up, for after this bag, there is no more.

Pie neither had nor eaten.

Anticipated one-time event missed to be with friends.

In company of friends but not with.

Cold. Hungry. Reconsidering (but ultimately reaffirming) caring.

in our last episode... | p_i-logs | and then, all of a sudden...

Winding to feel the pull of corners left then right, rising falling over the lush green bordered road. Pulling into my favorite summer stretch, the road narrows, corners tighten to slow high revving, and finally the trees tighten overhead until a glimmering green tunnel takes me in completely wandering with motion. She asks, you are not doing alright are you, i am alright just introverted the beach does that making you feel so small solemn yet integral to everything. Probing, the last time I asked you, you told me to piss off in a very polite way. How do you tell them that the right way to understand is beyond delicate words? My design in a manner complicated gears that do not properly interlock with others, only particular people may unlock me unaware of their innate understanding.

i feel pretty good today. woke up, took a shower, smoked a cigarette and went to work. at work i started on a new build and took the downtime waiting for it to finish compiling to check the news headlines. i found a story titled Thin Isn't In!... i am, admittedly, confused by the article. is it possible? is it? my ultra-paranoid side tells me this is just some researchers way of trying to make people feel better about themselves... but it is possible? despite what is so tremendously glorified on television and in the movies, is it possible that REAL PEOPLE prefer REAL BODIES? that people find toothpick thin supermodel waifs the least desirable type of body? i don't know. i just dunno. i don't think i can swallow that.

anyway, i've actually got to accomplish stuff today.

more later...

PAIN!!!

suddenly there's a pain in my side, above my belly button on the right. walking seems to help so i go down to smoke a cigarette and run into grizz. he says it sounds like when he had gallstones, and i should go to the doctor. so i go. first the doc seems to think it might be food poisoning and asks me several times if i've eaten anything outside. nope. i haven't eaten anything. the doctor sends me to a radiologist for an abdominal sonogram, which shows no gallstones, but that the wall of my gallbladder is much thicker than it should be. they want to do more tests. my doc recommended going to the ER to get the tests done immediately, but with pain killers i can wait until tuesday. the ER sucks. i'm given some acid blockers, an anti-emetic, and heavy painkillers, and sent for blood work. on my way to get the blood work done, i stop at the pharmacy and drop off the prescriptions. on my way out the pharmacy door i hear:
"excuse me ma'am? can i ask you a question?"
     "yes sir?"
"are you married?"
     "no, but i'm involved."
"you got friends?"
     "yes, i have plenty of friends."
"may i give you my phone number, as a friend?"
     "i'm sorry, but i don't think so."
ugh. i was in pain. grimmace-walk-funny pain. i'm pretty pale. i don't look so good. but this guy still walks up to me. heh. i like the "as a friend" part. never seen me, never talked to me, no clue as to what, if anything, we have in common. he was very polite, though. i will give him kudos for that. it's flattering, but i really would rather have not been bothered.

the blood tests were more than i expected. i had to pee in a cup, too. they're doing a whole lot of tests. CBC, hepatic panel, electrolite levels), pregnancy test, both blood and urine (exceedingly unlikely, but just in case) and some others i don't remember.

peeing in a cup isn't easy when you don't have a pee nozzle.

now i'm at home, watching the boob tube and writing this. i took two percocet. still waiting for them to ease the pain. i'm not supposed to eat solid food, and no fat whatsoever. ugh. this sucks. i hope it's nothing serious.

Everything seems depressed today, scrunched down by the weight of the rain and the thick air. I am waiting for the bus. I am waiting for everything. My fists are tight but empty. I am afraid to stand still, and it paralyzes me. I can't see a straight way to walk, my eyes darting from side to side.

There is something on my back making shrill urgent noises and poking me in the same place on the nape of my neck over and over and over again. I am watching myself, there is no one behind me.

I have been here before. I never left.

Okay, yesterday turned out to be not quite so good, at least in terms of my body modification goal. See, it was going just fine, until I thought, "maybe it'd hurt less if I were slightly intoxicated." Great in theory, lousy in practice - I forgot that when I'm intoxicated, more blood goes to my earlobes. D'oh. So, now my earlobes are too sensitive to keep the clamps on, and, of course, the extra blood also opened up the blood vessels I had previously crushed, so aside from a little bit of (probably temporary) surface damage on my right earlobe and a little minor bruising on my left earlobe, I'm pretty much back where I started.

I think I'll try again tonight. I know now to just be patient, deal with the mild pain some other way, and keep the clamps on. It's not like I've had any interest in my party tomorrow night anyway. (Why is it that nobody ever wants to come to my place to gather, watch movies, and play video games? I've got one hell of a kick-ass system...)

It's my 19th Birthday.

I am now officialy an adult.

The official time was 8:06 AM

If you wonder why I am an adult at 19 instead of 18 like most other Canadians, I live in BC where it was felt we need to be different. Alright here are the goods:

Getting linux to work with the laptop is proving less than simple but I think I am on the right track to fixing my problems, I just wish the manuals would give more technical info and less about how to do silly little things in windows.
Mysteriously, my odd back pain vanished after six hours at work. Huh. I'd say something about it leaving the same way it did, mysteriously and stuff, but that would bore you.

Besides that, my bro and I wandered off to the nearby Laser Quest to finally renew our memberships which expired New Year's Day. Going into a half-hour round of Laser Quest after a year being out of practice is not a good way to physically end the day... but damn, it's fun.

Unlike CaptainSpam's, my back pain did not disappear after being at work. I did something to a few muscles in the right trapezoidal area, going up to my neck and in to the center. It sucks. I also had a sore throat and probably a fever, but I took some of my herbal defense system pills and it subsided.

I've completely cut dairy from my diet, permanently. At the store I bought, amongst other dairy-free things that I usually buy anyway, dairy-free chocolate chips, made from wheat gluten, which taste like the dairy ones, and dairy-free rasberry granola. Oh, and vegan peanut butter cookies, which were like slightly stale "normal" pb cookies. I'll do a Reasons To Be Dairy-Free node, sometime.

The X-Files Season 1 on DVD has been my life for the past few days. Family and friends may have to do an intervention before too long. And that's not why I pulled muscles in my back....
