Good luck!

God I'm so bored! My neck/back is still wonky after the (medical) botox two weeks ago. Sod's law I had two photo shoots to do the week after I got it. I can't walk any distance without it flaring up so the poor dog is being neglected. It's not very sore, but it will be if I push it.

The worst thing about going to the eye doctor is the dilation. I'm super sensitive to whatever substance they use. Despite the claims that blurriness and light sensitivity from dilation should only last about 3 hours, it typically affects me all night, sometimes into the next day.

Everything's a blur right now. I have no idea how I just typed this, other than sheer muscle memory and that little red line that appears under misspelled words in Chrome. I should just take a nap.

My roommate's cat is not allowed outside after a horrible incident involving some crazy plant, vomiting (possibly) blood and having a seizure. But he's also bored and irritating as hell being all cooped up. So she bought him a harness and we have embarked on a desensitization plan for him (kitty does NOT like the harness). Tonight was the first night of letting him get used to it around the house and it was the funniest thing I've ever seen. He kept doing this weird slow-motion dive-and-roll move in a bid to get the harness off. It was like watching a slow-motion drunk cat.

Here's hoping he learns to tolerate it enough to go outside sometimes, cause I cannot deal with the constant yowling and trying to sneak out the front door.


Cats in harnesses always make me think of this:

My father-in-law just asked me if I had seen his egg slicer. Uh. No? And then he said he thought maybe I had moved it and dramatically opened every drawer in the kitchen.

So I got a really nice reply from the FB acquaintance that I sent the message to. She apologized for offending me (which really isn't the point), and she also admitted that it wasn't fair to bring up someone's nationality just because you're angry. There are good people and there are bad people. That's really all it comes down to. Well, maybe good, bad, and ignorant. Anyway, I hope it gives her pause when she wants to insult someone (or at least warn others from patronizing someone's gas station). From what it sounds like, the people are being greedy and dishonest, but that's tue of so, so many people.

Thanks PPK for convincing me to send her a note. I hope she really did think about it. I know y'all always help me see things from another angle.

Yeah, I certainly wasn't expecting that. It makes me feel bad for my snap judgment of her. I don't Ike to make excuses for people, but WV is, well, different. Sometimes I don't think people there know that no, that's not OK it's actually hurtful and rude. Other times people are just heinous, reckless jerks. I guess it's like a lot of rural places maybe.

Worst moments of work are when people play the didgeridoos. Those and penny whistles.

Man, I wish someone at my work would play the didgeridoo. (I work in a self-important corporate world)

Penny whistles are awesome. Maybe you have to be Irish.

Having had one though, I never have understood how James Galway gets the sound he does out f them.

Air conditioning isn't working on the second or third floors. Which means I get to sleep on the couch. Which means I have to wear pyjamas for when my grandparents wake up before I do and come downstairs. Which means I'm going to overheat. Again. /whine.

I would say it's like that everywhere. Big cities in the northeast are not exempt from racism. It is alive and well across the US.

I like penny whistles, and recorders. Maybe you have to be a Morris (or other folk) dancer to get it?

Yesterday, my co-author and I got the proofs for our first article together. It's going to be a chapter in a Cambridge book. We're already getting requests from people for advanced copies so they can "read and cite them already!!1".

Don't get me wrong. I love penny whistles when they're played right. Listening to someone who's never played a woodwind though? yikes. I'm happy they want to learn...but go do it in private!

It's the solstice. I live near Stonehenge. In the last couple of years it has been commercialised into a mini-festival - so whereas in the past we just had the odd straggling of druids, today the town is full of stoned, drunk, smelly rich kids smeared with facepaint and fake dreds, vomiting in the station and generally being obnoxious. I can't bear it.

God, I'm getting old.

For me it's didgeridoos, flutes and the untalented manhandeling of mouth organs that I don't do very well with. But I can't complain really, my job is awesome. And since the occasional didgeridoo is the worst of it, I'm a happy camper.

Thanks! It has reduced the migraine pain but I'm getting neuro symptoms from my neck now FML! They're booking me in for another round in 6mths, if I need it. Have to get checked for arthritis in my neck now, might be part of the overall problem.

When are you coming back to Belfast? I miss you! <3
