Ugh. Bad sleep. I hate when that happens

Me too. That's why I got the Fitbit. Now, instead of just feeling like I didn't sleep at all, I can look at a little screen and confirm it. Very useful.

My favorite way to eat pancakes as a slaadling was syrup-free, just a pancake wrapped around half a piece of bacon. Mmmm... so gooooood.

Dude, my mom used to cook bacon strips right in the waffle! I think she might have had to go to confession afterwards.

Nothing is more important than reading the Black Company books.

I bought the RPG, but couldn't find anybody else who had read the books and wanted to play a Black Company game.

I'll sure miss Carrie Fisher - not because of the character she played, but because of her own character: courageous, honest, self-deprecating. Her honesty about mental illness broke down a lot of the barriers of silence regarding such things.

I had my fitbit set to "sensitive" for sleep recording and couldn't sleep at all. Every little thing bothered me and I spent the night tossing and turning.

I set it to "normal" a couple of nights ago. I've been going to sleep around 9 or 10, not waking up at 3 am like usual, but waking spontaneously around 6 or 7 in the same position that I was in when I drifted off.

I am now convinced that the fitbit actually controls sleep.

we will have my dad and his ladyfriend and my mother-in-law over for christmas dinner tonight, we make deer stew with bread dumplings / napkin dumblings whatever the right english term is
I don't even know what those are, but some form of venison stew with dumplings sounds amazing.

they are made by roasting cut down toast in butter, than mix taht with a dough from floar egg-yellow, salt and milk and gently pull the egg-white beaten stiff, under

then you wrap it in a napkin or a kitchen towel and put it in hot but not cooking waterfor 40 minutes
before serving, slice it and roast the slices in butter

Sounds delish, but then, German food is always amazing.

My roomie bought a whole bunch of food, then left for her son's place for the holidays. I was going to stash some of it in the freezer, but the freezer is absolutely crammed.

My meal plans are basically cleaning out the fridge before the food goes bad.

Christmas Eve: ham salad (which I don't like because of too much smoky flavor)

Christmas: BBQ beef (I will fancy this up by putting it in a crescent roll wreath with cheddar cheese.

Salad: mixed greens with homemade dressing

Dessert: Bread pudding made from stale bakery croissants. I simply can't eat all those croissants!

I might just have a wee dram with every meal to take the edge off.

I generally enjoyed everything in Eps I-III that didn't involve Anakin or Padme or Jar-Jar. Scenes containing Palpatine were all acceptable, even if Anakin was there. There were some terrific fight scenes in the "prequels".

Anakin's awfulness as a character made Palpatine's Evil Glee (TM) very relatable. Lucas did an amazing job of making the bulk of the good guys stuffy and dull, while the bad guys were interesting and really on their games. The Dark Side was appealing because the Light Side was basically a piece of white bread with a glass of water on the side for dippin'.

Nordstrom has a lunch counter? What on earth do they serve?

When Mom and I went downtown Christmas shopping, she always made reservations at the Walnut room at Marshall Field's. It had a huge central atrium several stories tall (I'm not sure how tall it actually was, but it looked about 10 stories to a little girl), and the tables were arranged on balconies overlooking the atrium. They put up an enormous Christmas tree in the middle, all the way up to the top of the space, and had outsized gift boxes that could have contained a small car at the base to give the appropriate scale. We dressed up (the Walnut room was a nice place) and had a fancy lunch out before going to see the animated Christmas windows on State Street. I always asked her who those presents were for and if we could come watch while they were unwrapped. They were never for me and we couldn't. :)

Edit: OK, so it had ONE balcony level, but it was pretty darned tall, especially to a little kid.

Thanks you youtube and a couple of good books, I've found out that I was NOT doing everything wrong, depending on the medium, and I actually can draw a little.

So this will be my very first jump from doing something for fun to a more disciplined approach. Really nervous. But it's pencil, so how awful could it be?

I had the weirdest experience last night (actually between 6-7 this morning). I was dreaming that I was at a beach resort talking on the cell phone in the lobby. I had set my purse on the couch in front of me and went looking for it to put my phone back in. I was the only one there, but each time I picked up a purse, it was the wrong one and another appeared on the couch.

After a couple of times, I went "Oh, of course, I'm dreaming." But I didn't wake up like other lucid dreaming sessions. I went out on the beach, watched with other people as a dragon chased some poor bastards in a boat ("Wow, wonder what they did to piss it off"), had a meal, met with friends for drinks and to watch fireworks on the beach. It was like having Jedi mind powers. It was very real, but anytime I was asked for money, I'd laugh and say "I don't need to pay; this is a dream." They would shrug and accept it. Way cool.

I'm gonna try that at Starbucks today.

Oh, and I absolutely could not wake up and get out of it. Fortunately, an idiot east coast friend who forgets about time zones texted me at 6:45 to chat and the sound woke me up for real. It was kind of a relief by then.

Sorry to hear of the loss in your group, SS. That sounds awful.

Meditation seems to help me some, as does - surprisingly - tai chi. Tai chi hurts like the devil while I do it, but I can move and walk more freely after and with much less pain.

I agree with Wei Ji: get off everything you can. I went from 2.4 g ibuprofen daily to a target of 0. Now if I am having a terrible day, I can take 400 mg and feel relief.

When I had to take opoids after recent surgery, they gave me this along with them: Ondansetron 4mg Tablets. It's an anti-nausea drug to help tolerate the opoids. Otherwise the pills and patches have me retching all day long.

Oh, and watching things you find funny or playing video games is supposed to help a lot. You focus on those things and not on pain. I think laughter also releases some arcane substance that makes you better; hilariphins or something.

One extreme therapy recommended for people with lots of inflammation (which can cause lots of pain as well as asthma, anaphylaxis, etc.) is to eat clean and near starvation: 600 calories per day made up of organic fruits, veggies, and meat. No packaged foods, no breads, etc. It's brutal, but if it helps...

Best of luck. Chronic pain is no joke. My dentist said she had a sinus infection that pressed on one tooth root and now understands why people come to her nearly crying and beg "just take it out, I don't care anymore."

Hang in there.
