“All the reading she had done had given her a view of life that they had never seen.”

I’d always been a voracious reader as a child. I failed English in 2nd grade not because I didn’t understand the material, but because I was so bored I couldn’t stand it, and would read whatever book I could hide in my lap. One memorable day, I was told to stay in during recess (unsupervised, […]

Life is just too exciting for words.

That’s almost sarcasm, but not quite.

The past few weeks have been filled with some true stupid, and some good, and some gross. I’m going to only touch on it.

First, my post about physical abuse has caused a rift, because it upset people who chose to gossip amongst themselves than talk to me about […]

Whoops, haven’t been updating.

Not gonna lie, I’ve kind of come to hate WordPress the past month or so, with all the writing I do for IGM on it. It’s not like I hate my job. It’s just that staring at a white screen all the time gets to me.

Anyway, a lot has happened since I last updated. […]

Butt/Face Twitter

I can’t imagine what Google is going to bring my way with a title like that…

I’m on Twitter, and I’m fairly active, most days, with a smallish group of folks that comprise the majority of my timeline. We don’t segregate ourselves or anything, we just get along really well, so we end up chatting […]

Woo! Infections! Yay!

So no one called me back about my CT results, and I left a message for my doctor’s office, yesterday, to find out what the heck is going on. I got a call back, today, in which it was assumed I’d already gotten my results, so the nurse was kind of curt with me at […]

I am really sorry I haven’t been updating.

My left hand KILLS when I try to type for too long. I’m still not sure why…it’s mainly the pinky, and the position of my hands/arms doesn’t much matter.

Also, I seriously just keep forgetting to, because I’m stressed out and tired.

I dyed my hair (it’s purple with blue ends, because yep, I felt […]

Fun with Android Voice-to-Text! (Jabberwocky edition!)

Typing on my tablet is a royal pain in the butt. I will often use the VtT function for emails, just because it’s easier.

Unfortunately for my normal emails, that often results in headdesk-worthy word switch-ups and some truly dubious-sounding sentence structure.

Fortunately for my sense of humor, anything not spoken in a slight Southern […]

A quick note on pain. (I’m fine. Just remembering.)

I have few complaints about my time in the hospital. The thing is, the complaints I have are things that were consistent and kind of important.

For instance, the pain management – it really sucked.

I must have told 7 people on Friday, individually, that I couldn’t have dilaudid because I have a bad reaction […]

Back to pre-wedding weight. It only took being sick, lulz.

Yesterday, I weighed in at 184.6lbs. This puts me officially below my wedding weight (which was around 185-186…don’t remember, honestly).

My pants are all too big for me, except a couple of pairs I can wear with a belt. The ones I can’t wear with a belt…well, they bunch up underneath it and end up […]

18 hours of dreaming.

I was at Reese Witherspoon’s house. She was having a swim party, and somehow I was both a teenager and an adult at the same time.

The party lasted for two days.

The first day was wholesome and fun, with the adults basically between the round “nerd” pool (it was mostly full of guys), and […]
