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.
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.

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
Tomorrow night = dancing at Heroes; will anyone else be there?
Sunday afternoon I have a photo shoot for a BARCC project.
