Tew's Day

Administration
Happy birthday to jmspencer and fubar!

Medical
Today I bump up to 5 Lyrica pills in the morning and 5 at night. I anticipate dizziness. Thank goodness I'm not still on Trileptal...

KoL
I think I've now accomplished everything in the new area except getting all the bones for the misshapen animal skeleton familiar. And I'm a completist re: familiars. This is going to suck. *laugh*

Shayara
Yes, I hear you, themaskmaker and haikujaguar! I will try to post some Shayara for you soon. The Shayara writing I need to focus on this week is for the primer, which I can't post, because it is only available to people who sponsored me for Blogathon - or buy a dead-tree copy, when we get to that! But if my writerbrain pops out anything extraneous to that, I shall post it for you.

Daily Science
A team of French doctors will operate on a man under near-weightless conditions on Wednesday—a world first and what they hope will be a step toward performing surgery in space.

That is very cool - but you couldn't pay me enough to be the guinea pig for that.

Within the annual growth rings of old longleaf pines, scientists are discovering a previously unknown record of hurricane activity in the Southeast.

A University of Tennessee-led team has found that hurricane rain can leave a chemical mark in the woody tissue of these shallow-rooted trees that can date when storms occurred.


Daily BPAL
Loviatar: The Finnish Goddess of Agony, Torment and the joy found in inflicting pain on others. The Mistress of Torture, she has transformed in the modern era into the patron Goddess of Dominatrixes. The slap of slick, hot leather punctuates the warm, sensual embrace of black amber, red musk and dark, lascivious myrrh.

In bottle: Pretty much just leather and amber.

On me: Mmmmm, that's nice. :) The musk and myrrh lend a warmth to the leather. Depth. Texture. I swapped for this imp even though I know I have one coming from the Lab. It's just that nice. Red musk is riding high over the leather now. I am a fan of both of those notes. :) This is a sexy scent, but my Domme scent is still Blood Moon. This will be good for smelling like Teh Sex on occasions where I am not actively stalking prey. :)

Loup Garou: The wild, untamed essence of lycanthropy. Primeval in its raw power and insatiable hunger: juniper, cypress and galangal with the barest touch of eucalyptus.

In bottle: Juniper!

On me: Starts off as single-note juniper. I like juniper... it was one of the few things I liked about my stay at the wilderness survival camp. The smells. Juniper, sage, smoke. Anyway, back to Loup Garou, and it's still juniper, and I guess I'm going to have to wait a while to see if anything else shows up. :) Note: Whenever I see the word "galangal", it puts M.I.A.'s "Galang" in my head for hours. Damn you, Loup Garou. Plus? Juniper != the essence of lycanthropy, to me. I mean woods, sure, but I'd've put some musk in there. *ponders layering this with Wolfsbane and decides that her wrist would probably explode* Oh, here's a bit of cypress. Mmmm.

A note

...if only for medical reasons...

Still recovering from this weekend's activity level. I need to find a balance - figure out where that magical invisible line is, so I can keep my activity level under it.

Problem is, it moves...

So, yes. My record. I am exhausted. Just woke up from a nap, and may be going back to bed. Very bleary. Limbs feel heavy. This may also be related to dialing up on the Lyrica.

Huge problem for me:

With fibro? Sex hurts. And not in the happy fun way.

I am... athletic in bed, let's say. *laugh* I do not just lie there. I am a very, very active participant. Unfortunately, this results in overstressing my muscles/body... in the missionary position, the pain starts at my lower back and flows up my back, around to clutch my belly and ribs. From behind? Starts at the hips, flows down the legs.

The first time this happened, I was not anticipating it. We'd started in the missionary position. When the pain began, I tried to tough it out, then requested a position change, which brought us to from-behind, which brought the other pain. And that was when I collapsed into tears, all "OMG something else I love has been taken from me". Fortunately, my partner was very understanding and soothing.

Now, I'm better about this. I'm still upset about it, mind, but I'm better able to handle things now that I'm expecting them.

So yeah. I had a lot of great sex this weekend, and now my whole body hurts, and will for a few days hence. Is it worth it? Yeah. Fibro sucks. I'm going to have pain whether I have orgasms or not, so I may as well have the orgasms, you know?

Now I'm going to see if a hot bath helps, because I really need to get to the writing...

Addendum:

My life isn't all "ouch I hurt"; I actually have some really good stuff going on that I'm just not able to talk about yet, but will hopefully be able to next week or so, because I've been holding this in for months now and I am ready to EXPLODE. :)

Also, new boyfriend. Heh.

And Elayna is doing well. :)

So! I can't tell you everything that's good in my life.... but you can tell me something good in yours. So please do. :)
