Hello to new readers bachsoprano and neitherday!
* Neuro visit went well; he re-upped my Lunesta and wrote a prescription for Lyrica, and promised to sign the paperwork. So my first business-hours order of business today is to call the insurance company and get them to fax over the paperwork. I'll need to refill the Lyrica prescription late next week, and I want to allow time for fuckups.
* Said I had to get the Tramadol through my primary care doc, though, so that's my second order of business.
* I have an MRI and an EEG scheduled for Monday and Tuesday, but I can't find the appointment cards, so I can't remember which is which! Third order of business is to call the neuro's office and say "Halp!" The MRI will also include my lower back, as I'm having weakness in my legs. Could be fibro-related, but we want to rule out anything neurological.
* Painwise, yesterday was mild to moderate, with weakness and slow-burning ache in the legs all day. Got worse in the evening. Today, it's scaled back to mild, and I shall take care of myself - careful yoga, stretching between activities, bath with muscle-soak bath salts.
Shoujo Kakumei Utena
I am being mainlined Utena by yunatwilight. I feel like a foie-gras goose, but instead of producing a questionable delicacy, I am being force-fed to play a particular character in her Utena LARP.
Local male LARPers - Mars needs men! There are two male roles that stand unfilled, both really good ones. Utena experience with no LARP experience is okay, LARP experience with no Utena experience is okay (if you don't mind watching select episodes to prep). No LARP experience + no Utena experience = no play, sorry.
nomadmwe, I'm lookin' at you.
Is a writing day. All day. With scheduled breaks to preserve sanity and get other things done. Worthy of note: This is the first day this week that I've been able to sit down and write. I love you all, my local friends, but I need this. At least twice a week.
*blink* *blink* Goodness gracious, they've built Maxwell's Demon!
Tintagel: Spicy mulled wine flowing through the musky heat, warm leather and bright clash of armor, the damp branches of Cornish hawthorn, blackthorn, juniper, English elm and bayberry, and the magical tingle of dragon,s blood resin.
In bottle: Trees, musk, and dragon's blood.
On me: Sweet! Where's the sweetness coming from? Oh, there's the mulled wine. Nice!
Wicked: A sophisticated, womanly scent: rich myrrh and jasmine draped in the subtlest rose.
In bottle: Feh! Florals.
On me: *gag* Yeah. This is so not good. Elayna says "No wonder it's called Wicked - it smells terrible!"
Jabberwocky: An earthy yet buoyant scent: pine, eucalyptus and orange.
In bottle/on me: Yep. Pine, eucalyptus, and orange. I like the first two, hate the third. (Can you tell I'm hitting the frimps?)
The Coiled Serpent: A potent yogic oil that stimulates the kundalini, provokes spiritual awakening, and releases the energy seated in your root chakra.
In bottle: Hm. Sandalwood? Resins?
On me: Hm. Some patchouli and vetiver in there as well? All blending, nothing taking over. I like it.
