Happy birthday to lynxreign!

Happy early birthday to burning_brain and lordandrei, who advance a year over the weekend!

Ugh. So. Like I said, I'd been getting mildly glutened by my allergy pills. So among other things, I had the celiac skin itchies, and had been using a tea tree gel to ease that. It's the one thing I hadn't yet developed a prolonged-contact allergic reaction to.

Guess what?

Yep. Applied it last night before bed. Erupting into massive itchy welts with stabbing pain. And guess what? Can't take the antihistamine, because it has gluten.


Long story short (too late!), I had to take nighttime cold medicine, because a) antihistamine and b) the adrenalin spike from OMG STABBY PAIN flooded the Lunesta out of my system. So I am zombified right now.

AWESOME except not.

Friday Memage
Wearing: Black sparkly 3/4 sleeve shirt, black cardigan/wrap, jeans, have yet to decide on jewelry.
Reading: Upstairs, The Extra, by Michael Shea. Downstairs, Amazon Breakthrough Novel competitor. On the bus, Other Earths, edited by Nick Gevers & Jay Lake.
Writing: More like pre-writing - a lot of big things have dropped into place for me this week regarding Aaron, one of the main characters of Cicatrix. So there are scenes happening in my head, and I have not made it to a keyboard with them. But the world grows more complex and I love it.
Knitting: I don't think I've picked up my knitting at all this week!
Planning: So much depends upon a red wheelbarrow whether I manage to get a decent nap this afternoon. Evening party may get sidelined if I feel I need to be in bed at 10.
Tomorrow night = dancing at Heroes; will anyone else be there?
Sunday afternoon I have a photo shoot for a BARCC project.

Ahem. I'm fine now.

Dude. It is so alive in my brain right now.

She kicks so much ass.
2nd-Apr-2010 01:56 pm (UTC) - I read your links!
I really liked the essay on child-rearing. I don't (yet) have my own child(ren) to rear, but that doesn't really matter - I see my friends and family parenting and dealing with some of these things, and as an aunt I have to do some of these things too. Pre-loading myself with such advice/words of wisdom might be a good idea.

Wearing: Purple vest, pink long-sleeved shirt, dark blue jeans, black Merrells, ring, bracelent, necklace, but totally forgot earrings! I am naked!!
Reading: Easy re-reading for when I have little brain-power.
Planning: Dinner with sister and her friends tonight, sleeping in tomorrow morning, making my 1 and only matzabrei for this year, then going to NJ to visit G'ma and parents the rest of the day. Sunday through Tuesday: go through the end of Pesach w/sister.
Other: We've agreed that we should have a Mother's Day jewelry sale: start thinking about/planning/creating for that. Do my taxes. Research jobs, start taking some actions in that regard. Start getting enough sleep again. Eat better. Try not to worry so much about so many things. *sigh*

OTC medications are where some of my gluten-free friends are finding they are particularly challenged. The generic versions are the ones which seem to have gluten, while some of the name brand (and more expensive!) ones can be found gluten free. And sometimes getting prescription medications gluten-free is a pain in the ass too.

I'm sorry it's taking you down this path.

You'll have to WOW me at our READING, won't you?

La la la...

I have *plans*.

What's more, said plans are *nefarious*.

2nd-Apr-2010 04:38 pm (UTC)
Nefarious, no less?


I shall wear my lead vest, just in case.

3rd-Apr-2010 06:55 pm (UTC) - Thank you kindly my dear one :)
And happy news for the b'day. I am moving back to Pennsylvania. Hopefully Arisia and other Boston activities aren't as far.
