So I'm home today 'cuz I'm suffering from Mystery Face Pain. It feels like a sinus infection or maybe an abscessed tooth, but the doc doesn't think it's either. They're treating it symptomatically, so yay drugs?

Wherein I rant in a non-spoiler way about the characters of Prometheus.Collapse )

I just talked to my credit union about refinancing my car loan to get a lower monthly payment and a better interest rate.


What the hell? When did I become an adult?

Captain Kim Campbell
She pilots an A-10 Warthog, pulls off some amazing close air support and then manages a perfect landing with the equivalent of a car it's back half reduced to swiss cheese and no power steering? Badass.

Nothing like a good panic!
So, quick review. Life has had its ups and downs. I still suffer from depression. I still struggle with suicidal ideation. I just got off of a week vacation where Texas friends visited, so it's not all bad.

Still, I also got a 60 day notice to vacate, and that has me in full on panic mode, though I'm trying to resist. 60 days isn't as much time as I'd like, but it's still better than "GTFO now". I don't have much (read, I got nothing) in savings, but there's plenty of stuff to do at work, so 10 hour days are the order of business. Overtime will help. I haven't started seriously looking for a place yet because I don't want to move sooner than necessary, and here in Portland, a month can mean a drastic change of what's available.

Still, I probably won't be living downtown after June 4th. I don't know where I will be living. I joke that it will be a sturdy cardboard box on a corner, but I know it won't come to that.

Nonetheless, it's got me panicky enough to post on LJ for the first time in about ever. *deep breaths* I mean, I've lived here for over 3 years. I've grown attached to this place. It's awesome for me, and it sucks that I have to leave it because the owner wants to renovate it, but I can't do much about that other than whine and throw a fit.

And now that I've whined, I'm gonna go throw a fit.

It's been about, what, a year since I've posted? Who the hell knows.
Holy shit, you guys. Rail workers' unions in the US may go on strike! IN DECEMBER! You may or may not realize this, but rail transport is still how the majority of freight is transported here to this day. The National Retail Federation is asking Congress to step in if the strike goes through, to which I say, fuck you NRF. The railroad unions have our materialistic Christmas bullshit in a Scorpion Death Lock in the center of this metaphorical ring. I think this is awesome.

Oh lord, summer.
It's probably just work stress setting off all my other problems, but god damn, do I feel like a sad excuse for a human being right about now.

The sun staying up until 9pm is fucking with me trying to go to bed at 8pm, and so I'm not getting as much sleep as I'd like, either.


Just thought I'd whine on LJ a bit. Gonna go think about setting myself on fire now.

Just a link about a badass
Khawla bint al-Azwar, Islam's most famous female warrior, and a total hardass. I'm kind of smitten.

Oh, and happy day we decided to change a number in our Gregorian dating system. Woo.

Just some videos, not a real post
For all those curious, I'm doing fairly well. Just not much to report! Anyway, I will forever be nostalgic about several things Sesame Street. Oddly enough, it's not the muppets so much as the random music vids they had. Here are a couple which I've loved most of my life and which were rather prophetic as to the many branches my music tastes would follow.

Current Mood: a bit groggy

*insert Danny Glover here*
So I don't know if I ever mentioned it here or not, but I got a bike a couple of weeks ago. Nothing fancy, but I'm working on making it mine.

Anyway, today I had my first wipeout on it. It was a minor one and the worst visible injury I got was a raspberry on my right forearm right by the elbow. I didn't think much of it. I had some joint stiffness, but that's kind of normal after I fall off of a bike (he says from experience).

But oh sweet baby space jesus, something is not right. My right knee and elbow area absorbed most of the impact, but my right shoulder apparently got jostled something fierce. Somewhat restricted ROM (range of motion for those who never had to process disability claims), and the pain seems to be coming from the lats by the armpit radiating to the top of the shoulder. Or maybe there's some secondary pain coming from the top of the shoulder. I can type fine, but extending the arm out or up suddenly makes me feel OLD.

I am thirty four, and I am apparently not bouncing back as quickly as I used to.


Current Mood: too old for, well, you know

Today my dad got to call me an asshole via text message. Is it any wonder we're not close?

Oh Onion, how I've missed you.
So I don't read the Onion all that often anymore, but going over some of their stuff, I found this gem:

Supreme Court Upholds Freedom Of Speech In Obscenity-Filled Ruling

Oh man, I was in tears. I only wish this was a real story.

Great music in the year of my birth.
Seriously, '76 had some damn good music. Makes me think maybe I should have been born 15 or 20 years earlier.

Current Mood: like you
