Happy birthday to sbisson!
Hello to new reader charlesland!
The usual, but the nausea's worse than usual today. A little brainfuckery. I called about the biopsy results yesterday, but the person said that they usually tell the person to wait ten days, not a week, and she took a message. I'll call back tomorrow morning if I don't hear anything today. It'd be nice to get whatever meds I need for this before my trip. EDIT: Shit. So exhausted I can barely move.
Adam: "What do you want for breakfast?"
Me: "I want to whap [person who is frustrating me] upside the head."
Adam: "I don't know if we have any of that in the pantry."
Me: "Well, if we don't, I would like some waffles."
8 Hunks of Hanukkah
burning_brain, chuckmckeithan, lrstrobel, woodwardiocom: Please send in your additional pictures, as Chanukah is fast approaching!
(Incidentally, I seem to have discovered The Path And The Way to get cute guys to read one's LJ. Not just guys from the top eight - I got plenty of cuties who aren't in the top eight who started reading me because of this. I feel like Badger in Better Off Dead with his "How To Pick Up Trashy Women" book, except, y'know, cute geek-guys.)
I have finished shopping for my birthmom and aunt and uncle. My cousins, I can shop for when I get there. We always get dragged out on the 23rd to get last-minute gifts, because my birthmom doesn't know what to get for them either and because we need to get stocking-stuffers. This is also why I'm not panicking about having yet to buy the checkers/chess/backgammon set Elayna wants; I know I can pick it up in Target down in Florida on the 23rd. Not likely to be a huge run on them.
This is what Elayna's getting: That, plus
2. A really very useful book - from MirrorMask, this is a replica of said book, but mostly blank. It has some advice in black ink, and some in invisible ink; it comes with an invisible-ink pen with a blacklight.
3. Second Summer of the Sisterhood by Brashares
4. Apples to Apples
5. Katamari Damacy
6. Teen Titans Series 4 action figures (complete set)
7. Earring holder - all purple and glittery with big fake crystals around the edges
8. Gold heart-shaped stud earrings with a wee diamond chip in the center of each
I also have a Rubik's Cube for her stocking (she circled it in a catalog), and I swear I have something else I've forgotten. I am very pleased with myself for having gotten much of this on sale; Katamari Damacy, for example, was only $10.
docorion got her books - The Pigman by Paul Zindel, and Noisy Outlaws, Unfriendly Blobs, and Some Other Things That Aren't as Scary, Maybe, Depending on How You Feel About Lost Lands, Stray Cellphones, Creatures From The Sky, Parents Who Disappear In Peru, A Man Named Lars Farf, And One Other Story We Couldn't Quite Finish, So Maybe You Could Help Us Out, edited by McSweeney's, including stories by Neil Gaiman, Nick Hornby, Lemony Snicket, and other luminaries. Um. Yes, I helped. :)
My brain is drifty, so I shall go now.
