The one good thing about being sick is that I have almost gotten enough sleep.

Of course... ~shivers and covers up~

Not really a restriction or a feature. The hotel probably doesn't want to pay for the higher bandwidth, for guests that probably just want to check their e-mail or buy something on-line. 200 kb/s is far faster than the maximum of 56 kb/s for a dial-up modem. If the hotel has Ethernet ports in the rooms, that would be much quicker.

I just realized how sexist I can be, because My first thought was "Damn! She is Hot!!!"

Admittedly, I've been watching YouTube as well, which has dropped the speed to around 100k, and there have been some breaks when I put the computer to sleep while I did some work (for instance, it's been asleep for about the last 45 minutes and not downloading), so it's going slower than it should. Eh, not a big deal.

No, I'm not going to download WoW, I have never had any interest in it.

Too hot. Too cold. ~shiver, shiver~ Cough! Cough! ~tries to stay warm and turns off the fan for a few minutes before turning it back on~

Being sick sucks.

well you tried


Wiped out at 3:30-ish. Woke up at 5:45-ish.

I'm exhausted. I am shivering. My head and eyes hurt.

I could go to sleep!

... ooooorrrrrrr I could do those things that are likely entertaining but fundamentally not important that I've been meaning to do....

I cleaned the whole house in a day.

It's not a big house, but I'm still impressed with myself.

Well, technically less, as I also squeezed in four hours at the toy store in there.

And sleep, you gotta have sleep.

It's true what they say.

You never know how dirty your kitchen floor is until you get on your hands and knees and scrub it by hand.

I still remember how angry I was when my younger brother and I switched chores so I had the kitchen floor. Every time I ran the mop over it it got lighter, so I ended up on my hands and knees scrubbing. It turned out that in 2 years he hadn't mopped the floor once.

And my parents had "last child syndrome" with him: For me and my older brother, they would do a military-style "white glove" inspection of our cleaning before we got our allowances. For my younger brother, it was, "Meh. He tried."

Ah, but you ignore the possibility of... stuff~! :D

Also, feeding my child.

EDIT: totally getting naps where I can, though. ;D

So um the leukemia is back. I don't much more than that at this point. The nurse called me late yesterday and said that the damaged chromosome was detectable in my blood, and the doctor wanted me to start treatment again. I have an appointment with him tomorrow at 9 to find out more.

I haven't been taking the medicine for it in almost 6 years. I knew intellectually at some point that I'd have to start it again. If the medicine "flips the switch" (so to speak) to turn the cancer producing cells off, you figure you have to keep taking it to keep the cancer turned off, right? But I went so long without that I was beginning to hope remission was permanent.

I'd appreciate ya'll's thoughts tomorrow...

I was going to take a nap, but then my box with Alien Archives appeared upon my doorstep.

So much for that.

Well, here's to hoping it's just the anxiety doom and gloom and we don't actually go bankrupt. I've at least got a steady paycheck that should stave it off awhile.

We were hopeful, right up until the district turned down her application because the part time position she was considering told them she was already employed with them.


Oh, TOZ, I'm sorry. I know that place. You are in my prayers.

It's BS, it's got her at the bottom of her depression, and I don't really have much to offer as comfort.

Sorry, man!

Controlled tirade, but political:
I cannot tell you how much it p****s me off when union rules designed to "protect" workers end up hosing them instead. I had a great job as a full-time replacement position at Saint Mary's College. They liked me so much they hired me for a second year. When the third year came along, it was, "Sorry. We can't hire you for anything this year or we'd have to offer you a full-time position. Good luck!"
Sooooo many part-timers get shafted by such rules. The intent is noble: "Let's prevent the district from having permanent part-timers." The effect is devastating: "OK, we'll have a rotating staff of part-timers, so none of them are ever permanent, and every year or two they have to scramble to find new jobs."

*grumble*

But yeah, three years of dealing with exactly that **** makes one a wee bit bitter...
...and then seeing it devastating someone else just makes you want to hit something (or someone).

Sometimes, it's the stupid little things in life that are satisfying.

I've been paying for legal coverage since I first rented out the house, so... 9 years now.

I *finally* had reason to call a real, live lawyer yesterday. And of course got his secretary.

But this morning a real, live lawyer called back, ready to answer my legal questions!

Of course, the issue had already been resolved, but still! I am actually getting what I've been paying for for all these years! What a concept!

EDIT: Aaaand... the street sweeping came, on the right day, and no one was parked in front of our house!

You know, maybe chopsticks wouldn't be so hard for white Americans to figure out if somebody explained a couple things.

First off, only one chopstick should move. This is VITAL. There's one stick that gets held by the middle finder and the palm, and that stays where it is. Your thumb and index finger do all the maneuvering with the other one. The art of using chopsticks is that of pinning food items to one stick with another, not of pinching items between two sticks.

Second, American dining etiquette doesn't necessarily fit how chopsticks work, because manners are different in cultures that use them as the primary eating tool. The proper means of eating a bowl of rice with a pair of chopsticks is to put the bowl up to your lips and shovel the rice into your face-hole (in fact, a really good general rule with Asian cuisine is that you should pick bowls up, something not typically done in America). This is directly connected to how slurping a bowl of soup or noodles is acceptable in Japan. Yea, you're going to have a hard time if you're trying to pick up rice from a bowl on the table and carry it to your mouth with chopsticks. That's why you don't do that.

That's rotten news, TOZ. Hope things turn around for you both!

This is exactly the kind of behavior that gives a company a terrible reputation and leads to people leaving as soon as they can afford to. It's not just terrible, it's shortsided and counterproductive as all get out.

I have no problem using Chopsticks. I use them while eating Ramen at home. But then again, I do volunteer for an anime convention here in Pittsburgh. :)

Almost too fun.
