Heh. TV.

It's been so long since I've watched TV that I have no idea where the remote is.
We have a long pink ribbon tied to it, too, so we don't lose it in the couch.



Final projects are in, exams are taken, everything is done until next year.

whew :thud:

'Graine Ate my Brain

Friday was evil.

I worked on my webpage final project for about 5 hours, which hasn't given me problems before, but every time I've pulled a marathon stint this semester it's been at school, in their proper chairs and desks, not here at home with my crappy "printer table as desk with couch as chair" setup. About 9 pm I started really hurting...I took a flex and a blue, but my head kept getting worse--by about 10, I was at the "I'm going to puke my guts out and I HATE puking" stage--about an 8 on the Migraine Richtor Scale. The agony was such that laying down hurt because then all I could do was focus on the pain, and walking hurt, and sitting hurt, and OW OW OW OW...
TTK turned out every light in the house, then put tape over the microwave's glowing readout, to give me relief from the pain of light in my eyes.

It was definitely not a good time.
Saturday I was so wiped that though we ran errands, the whole day was quite distant and everything was distant, like I was watching it. Around 6 I was so tired I went to bed...

So my project has not gotten done, and it's due tomorrow.

The teacher reviews the sites in class.

Ah, public humiliation, here I come!

In the Locker Room...

...a surreal moment. I'm in the adaptive swimming class (part of APE--what a stupid name! Adaptive Physical Education) and it's mostly older folks, with some young puppies as student assistants. The SA's are really nice, but oh so young!
I'm in the shower in the women's locker room, and finished and started to dry off and dress. One of the SA's popped in a cd in their stereo and hit play:

Out comes the opening strums of "You Sexy Thing" by Hot Chocolate.
This was one of the songs from the movie "The Full Monty" that the guys used to learn to strip to. HEE!

So it was very surreal to be PUTTING ON clothes, in a room full of people who are mostly past their sexy days.
I was so tempted to break into a strip tease in my underwear, but I feel like I fall into the above category of unsexiness, so I didn't.
Instead, I came here to post about it. Heh.

Now I go pick up the Ginsukitten, who just got her baby-making parts removed and is coming out of anaesthesia nicely.

I'd like to buy a vowel...

or actually, a new spine. This one is giving me no end of trouble.
It used to be that my hip only hurt at the end of the day, and only if I had been sitting too long.
Now, it hurts all night and is already aching in the morning. By afternoon it feels like a hot, tight, band of pain across my lower back, and just continues getting worse.
And on top of that I am going to be spending a lot of time sitting--final projects are due next week and so I need to put a LOT of hours in behind the computer. My desk situation at home is so icky and painful that I spend all of my time at school in the computer lab--the lab assistants all know me, and call me one of their "frequent fliers" heh.
Pain medication is what will get me through this week, I'm afraid.
Note to self: refill purse, car, and schoolbag stashes when you get home.

Ginsu-Roomba is going in to the vet tomorrow to get seems she is going to live after all, and a cat in heat is a miserable creature (as is everyone within earshot), so snippage time.

She's a great fluffy awkward ball of love--just pure love. Her main senses that are still operable are smell and touch...unbroken cats enjoy being touched, so imagine how much she loves it. She runs into things a lot, poor spinny thing, but I can't find a little football helmet her size. Heh.
