*sighs*

So. The move went well - long, but well. I honestly feel more at home up here, in small-town America, than I ever did back in Colorado. I hope I can stay here for a while, and recharge myself. If I get the job I want though, in a while we're probably going to move down to Redmond. Yes, that Redmond.

However. I have totally blown out my left shoulder. It would have to be that one [I'm a lefty]. I can barely move it, and, in fact, it's why I'm up at such an ungodly hour. Thing is, the doctor's don't know what I did. The X-Rays were normal, the MRI was normal. So now they're probably thinking it's all in my head and I'm drug seeking. Which I'm not, thanks. The only reason I'm taking the vicodin at all is so I can get a modicum of sleep every night.

I have another appointment on Wednesday with a new doctor. This one has a special background in Rheumatology, and so if this is somehow connected with my fibro, she should be able to help. I'm also looking for some refills and a referral to a shrink.

IN OTHER NEWS:

First: I'm going to be making a quilt! It's a very simple pattern, just 2 1/2" strips sewn together and made into blocks. I like it a lot, and we chose the fabrics yesterday. There are a lot of... erm, shall we say, shiny fabrics in there. :D

Second: I'm doing National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo. The goal is to write a 50,000 word novel [or more!] in the month of November. I've tried it before, when I was working at Dish the first time, and failed spectacularly. Now, however, I'm over 30,000 words into it, making me well over goal. I think I can do it, I really do!

Third: Job hunting sucks, but at least I have backup if it takes too long. I'm really gunning to do what [livejournal.com profile] thunderbird8 does - game testing for Nintendo. I know it's not all fun and games, but it seems like it'll be a better atmosphere than most of my other jobs have been. I had an orientation "first interview" there a week and a half ago, and now I'm just waiting to hear back to see if they want to do a second interview. And yes, still looking for jobs while I wait.

Dear Shanty Raid-io,

So long, and thank -- for all the fish.*

Much love,
Abigail.


*oh, and the friends, and the boochy good times, and the songs and broadcasts and idiocy and love and silliness and late-night Vent sessions. And so much more.

So... I'm thinking about getting another tattoo. People are right when they say it's addicting.

But not yet. This one... I want to wait awhile for this one, and figure out something special. I'm thinking just text this time, and I've already picked out a couple of sections I Really Really Like.

Pope )

OR

Shakespeare )

[or possibly just "the undiscovered country", not sure.]

Now I'm just seeing my body as a canvas to draw on. Great.

oh YAY

Napster FINALLY carries Great Big Sea tracks.

SO HAPPY.

Also: I had forgotten how much I love [LOVE] the various Firefox addons. Adblock, colortabs, etc. *happy sigh*

I know the icon's from the wrong play, but he hasn't done a Hamlet one yet. So sue him, not me, thanks!

The play went really really well. Well, ok, aside from the Friday afternoon's "prop malfunction"... that left me on the floor. Stupid chair. I really do wish that we had been able to do more performances, but ... it didn't work out like that this year.

So, pictures, as promised. Go HERE and feel free to browse around. There's a lot of pictures in there, from various sources. Mine is under the "Abigail pics" subgroup, not a lot in there since I was, y'know, busy acting.

Marvel at the dress - I was actually able to finish it. Go me!

There is only one way to describe how I feel right now.

So after finding a spider in my shower [cue girly horror squealings here] and flushing it down the drain,...

I find myself scared that it will come out during a shower and EAT ME or something.

I find irrational phobias quite annoying, how about you?

I have joined the ranks of the tattoo'd. I'll get a picture up ... uh, once I get one. I forgot to take it with me when I got it, and now it looks like crap due to healing and stuff.

But it's pretty. And I lubs it.

So, um, apparently I forgot about this here journal-thing. Ooops.

Life's been okay lately. I got moved to another housing unit at work and no longer have to work with this insanely crazy woman there who apparently thinks it's her duty to ream everyone a new one when they make any sort of mistake. Yeah, really happy with that move there.

Apartment = mine.

I had to buy a new car, since Bob died in a Smoky Ball of Death. I now am the proud owner person making payments on an '03 Silver Civic. Preeeeeeetty.

And now, because I'm feeling sick and stuff, I'm going back to bed so I can get up and be relatively coherent at work tonight.

*waves*

I went to Crate & Barrel today and bought flatware and dishes.  Somewhat expensive, but worth it.


Now I've just got to find a table and some chairs, a washer and dryer, and some bathroom stuff.  Gads this is getting expensive.  But oh! so fun.

I've decided not to do the whole 'curtains on walls' thing for now, since a] it really is not cheap to buy the fabric, and b] I do not have the time, what with needing to costume myself and all.  So... also need to paint the living room something nice and relaxing that will also fit my current furni.  Oh.  And I'm painting poetry on the walls, since it will be fun and stuff.  Specifically, either the original Lyke-Wake Dirge, or my modification of the same for that Poetry Deathmatch way back when.

Oh.  And I want a bunny rabbit.

Ridge View made it on the news today. 'Today' as in 'right now.' Kinda neat.

[no, it's NOT because somebody died. We were just featured on the Friday School preview, or something like that. and if I can find a link, I'll add it.]

[[edit: found the link. I wish the video made it on there, but still.]]

And it's true, too *grins*

I was just reflecting on so many things I've gone through with that monstrous crap of a disease... mostly because a friend was diagnosed with it. It's interesting, though, that lately it's started to fall off, and I'm not sure why, otherwise I'd be plastering it all over the place to hopefully help someone do the same.

Doing some reading on it, it never ceases to amaze me how many doctors are content to say to a patient that it's all, basically, 'in your head.' Just because it's not understood doesn't mean it's fake... especially if practically everyone who has it has the same symptoms. Odd.

But still... the fact remains that there are so many people who have it, and there's nothing to cure it. It's sad, and also horrifying that these poor girls [there's a 9:1 women/men patient ratio] have nothing yet to look forward to for a cure. Mneh.

And so comes the random end of my philosophical ramblings, again. Hmm. Good name for a tag, that.

So like, it's 4:10 in the morning. I'm on break at work and trying to stay awake [why yes, officer, it's my first time doing night shift work, why do you ask?] and so I thought I'd make a random post here.

I think I found an apartment, it's a great community and the price is decent for the space [and the time I'll save driving to work every day], and I hear back tomorrow about all that 'approval' crap. Which reminds me, I do realize that there's a reason for them to do a credit check on applicants, to make sure they can pay their rent every month, but man, why on earth do they need to know my DL number, my height, weight, hair color and eye color? ! Jeeze I hate this.

I also came up with a way to decorate well and stuff and also save a fair amount of timie and money at the same time - instead of painting, just buy fabric, hem it, and hang it like curtains or something! It also seems a good way to get really neat effects without having to worry about all the painting techniques.

Where was I? Oh. Yeah. I mentioned how much I'll save time-wise driving .... about 30 mins. I can't wait.
