Random life dump post.

Oh, Flisties, how are you so awesome? Seriously. You guys made me feel so much better with all your comments when I was owie and bitch-moaning. Thanks for putting up with me.

This past weekend:

Down-side: I had the neck pain, then must have twisted the wrong way compensating because then I had a lower back pain with additional bonus shooting pains down my leg.

Upside: the neck pain is 95% gone, and the lower back pain reminded me that I AM A LAZY SLUG AND NEED TO GET MY ASS OFF THE COUCH AND WALK because I sit at a computer all day at work and that is the worst for compressing nerves and compromising circulation in my legs.
- I'm prone to sciatica already and I *know* I need to strength core muscles and MOVE but I am lazy, lazy, L A Z Y. *sigh* At the very least, I should be walking a mile a day. L A Z Y.

Overall, the weekend was okay - the kids helped with some chores; we got a balcony cleared of fallen leaves, powered through 6 loads of laundry and as many loads of dishes (HOW do the children in my house dirty EVERY SINGLE DISH I OWN??) as well as vacuuming, tidying - blah, blah, boring.

We got out for a walk one day - it was really lovely, cool brisk breeze and bright sunshine, just the way I like it. Then it started raining again. Ah, the onset of winter in Vancouver - RAIN, RAIN and MORE RAIN. Could be worse though; at least it ain't snow.

I was working on a fic during Squee weekend, one that had been languishing on the HD for a few years, and I had it about 2/3 done and was planning on finishing it on the weekend. But didn't, cuz it was to painful to sit at the computer for too long. I didn't even go online all weekend (I KNOW! HOLY CRAP, IT IS THE END OF THE WORLD!) But maybe I can get it done now.

AS LONG AS I REMEMBER TO TAKE WALKS AND NOT F*CK UP MY BACK! Did I mentioned LAZY? LAZY!

Work this week has not been as bat-shit crazy as it was last year at this time. This is partly due to the fact my boss is currently 4000 miles away (and therefore, so is his bat-shit crazy pre-Black Friday insanity) BUT this changes as of Friday, sooooo... I think I'll be planning for Martini Friday Night.

Hopefully Ma$$iveClient will get their ducks in a row and get us all the pre-sales data we need to get our ducks in a row by Wednesday. I'm quite certain everyone in the office is going to be at wit's end next week. I foresee no nerf wars in my immediate future; people get a might tetchy when you nail them with nerf darts when there's several hundred thousand dollars on the line. Don't know why that is, exactly, but it's true.

I'm in the mood for filk. And good fic. I wanna hang out with fans and drink wine and talk about John Sheppard's stupid hair and Rodney's hands and subtext.

*sigh*

I MISS EVERYONE! Can we have Squee weekend at my house? Is it next year yet?

Glad the pain is better--you really had me worried there! And I know what you mean about realizing that you need to make better life choices--I find it interesting though, that even though I ate and drank a LOT of things at Squee Weekend that should have affected my guts, they were *fine* there, but are not happy with me now. I wonder how much of that has to do with stress, hmmmm?

(I've made the sauce with the rice noodles though, and it was yummy! Thank you again for introducing me to something I can actually eat safely!)

I could see where nerf darts might not go over well at the moment...

THIS. That and the fact that Squee Weekend felt like it was much too short this time around. I should have said "screw the hurricane" and gotten stuck there with the rest of you. :-)

OMG YES! YOU TOTALLY SHOULD HAVE!

It was good to have you while we did, though.

HOW do the children in my house dirty EVERY SINGLE DISH I OWN??

One of them has chef training. Part of chef training is the belief that it doesn't matter how much mess you make, the dishwasher will clean up after you.

Wine, fans and, is okay to add music? Sounds perfect.

Good luck with the pain - am in same boat.

Lemme know when you're having a gathering & I'll drop in. When will we karaoke again? If you need someone to walk with, I need exercise, too.

Yay for chaos kept at a distance - boo that it's coming back.

I second the need for a fangirl squee-weekend. Wines & Women & Songs!

I wouldn't mind having a gathering at new place next year... if I freaking survive moving this weekend!

I really should have taken a day or two off work to deal more with this process. The worst part is having no internet right now. Oh, the withdrawal is horrible! I am so far behind on all my shows! :)

The upside is that I have all new bedroom furniture. Once I got over the fact I spent $1300+ on it, I really do like it!
