1. Fish out keys and unlock door
2. As quietly as possible, enter
3. (as though 2 negligible), tell dogs to be quiet
4. Put any take-away away & drpo purse on kitchen table
5. Once dogs silent, take my dog out back to pee
---5(a) Encourage/coax/bribe my puppy onto the damn grass (because he's afraid of the dark)
---5(b)Once 10 min. up, go inside (with dog) regardless of his actions
6. Text friend [who I was out with] that I am home safely
7. Take sleeping pills
8. Get glass of water (and leftovers if desired)
9. Get into bed & make req'd "I am intoxicated" DW (& LJ cross-)post

+ my mother's dog decided she needed to go outside, too, but wouldn't leave the damn porch until after Danny (my dog) and I went inside.

PS(1); please ignore the spelling, both to my f-list (in this post) and to [personal profile] conser (in the case of the 'home safe' text)
PS(2); other shit to follow at least 8h later (given 5h is my gen buffer time b/t posts & I hope to get to sleep in 1-2 hours)
.....PS(2)[a]; with a "Melissa Ethridge is awesome post I wrote a while ago
..........PS(2)[a](i); unless it ends up being a bitch-fest about my mother having from yesterday (Good Friday) until Thrusday off, because she does and she's always insanely stress-crazy when she's taken vacation time.
PS(3); Lifesaver sherbert is fucking sweet, and as [personal profile] conser can tell you, if I'm bitching about it, it's likely just diabetes incarnate
fai_dust: law & order: 15x13 - Ain't No Love (Default)
So, my head's a sieve. If I need to do something, I'd better damn well do it when I am told / remember about it because if I don't, it is not going to happen. Being on stupid pills mixed with no-sleep levels of manic and stress from dealing with random bitch attacks from my sister... well, I'm sure you get my point.
Along with this, I apologise to the >90% of my journal f-list who's not on DW as well as LJ; the site was being a jerk to me again, so I couldn't use it past cross-posting through DW. Hell, half the time, my computer couldn't see that even exsisted.

The gist of this? If I owe you something, you need me to do something, or anything else, please don't be afraid to tell me point-blank on here. I can semi-work LJ again and will be trying to catch up with you all.
Thank you for your understanding if you have even a little; I am fully aware of what a special case I've been the last while and I am going to do my damndest to improve.

edit: (aprox. 2h later) I've finally changed my LJ layout, which I've been meaning to do for at least 6 months, but probably needed doing for a lot longer then that. If it's too girly, juvinile or offends you visually in any other way, please feel free to tell me. I fully admit I do not have the best judgement right now.

when I can relate to anything from Yelling Bird, it isn't a good sign.

fai_dust: Eureka: 2x11 - Maneater [Lexa Doig as Anna Young] (.work sucks)
...so no sleeping caught up me me and I've been feeling like total crap for the last four or five days. Not fun. But in an effort to cheer myself up, I present a very silly song, which is also the perfect example as to why Studio 60 was awesome and bit the big one when it came to ratings.

.
fai_dust: Questionable Content #1696 (.sick: sleepless)

...maybe I'm looking for a reason to be upset? I don't know. I was trying to distract myself from the fact that LJ wasn't loading (and therefor couldn't make my daily_scifi entry), so I rewatched the damn thing twice on VHS, then tracked it down on the internet so I could make a bunck of icons for a scene I loath. Don't mind me. But then again, Elisabeth Röhm, so, pretty!

Can you tell I haven't slept right in days?



Also, if anyone wants 300+ caps of her in her final scene on Law & Order, let me know. Maybe then I can justify it in a better light?
fai_dust: law & order: 15x13 - Ain't No Love (Default)
So, apparentally, being 23 is looking to be a good age. Even though I'm at the second worst point in my life health-wise, it feels like the universe is looking to help make up for it.

so many awesome things are happening right now )

PS; please help me with this if you haven't already!
fai_dust: Eureka: 2x03 - Unpredictable (.dumb)

Colbert: Mainly, I want to see it to get answers about the shocking regime collapse on everybody's mind; Canada's coalition minority government, lead by Prime Minister Stephen Harper, fell today. The Canadian government has fallen! As we speak, [I know a chilling story,] as we speak, marauding bands of rebel Inuit are storming parliament on beaver-back while embattled prime minister Stephen Harper orders mounties to dump cauldrons of mapel syrup on them!
    - [March 28, 2011]
Good to know this is happening in my country.

Also, I may have a way to beat the hazy brain. Free-based crack* is the shit!

*I am in no way promoting free-based crack, or any other drug not perscribed by a licensed physician. In actuality, they have put me back on the brand-name ADD medication methylphenidate hydrochloride Concerta which has much different effects then the generic drug, as well as upping my dose to off-set the stupid-brain of my antipsychotics.

***** these were written at various times over the last few weeks when I thought them but was too fried to post. I apologise if there are any typos; each and every one was all but unreadable when I actually typed them, but I did run it through spell-check on MS Word, so I hope I got the majority of the mess. *****

sad fact just editing and cleaning this up took... too long. I opened the page at "22:43" and finished at "23:55". Jeeze.

 - I really dislike wiki sites. It took me this side of forever to not hate them immediately because of the potential unreliability of them (I don't care what anyone says about how a wrong answer can be corrected as quickly as under a minute; I know of four incidents involving people I know personally and in 'real life' [as opposed to on-line] where it was the wrong information that kept getting 'corrected'), bitching because I can't figure out the damn rules + gushing over ComicVine )

 - Sometimes, words are awesome but right now, I despise my vocabulary. Unless I know someone really well**, I can come off as either harsh, pissed off or attacking when I don't mean too. Apparently, saying that 'x' template email was used to justify the deletion of a submission is being rude, but that's the most descriptive word I can come up with. "Explain" doesn't fit because the email didn't explain anything.
  **or they happen to have an X-Files reference as their username not be angered because they say the same things with the intent of being a (funny) pain in the ass being harsh.
added in editing/just before posted (this isn't something that needs to be said on a general post, but I'm going to anyways) I am more than a little amused by this note and it's sub-point because I had a conversation on this very subject last night with her.


 - You know how sometimes when you watch a show that you haven't seen in a long time and when you watch it again, you wonder how you didn't see how truly **awful** it is? Well, I caught myself thinking the reverse when I was watching Star Trek; Voyager a while back. I always remember it as being poorly acted in the beginning, not all that good with continuity, having created Seven for gratuities sexuality and just really hokey. I attribute watching it to it being _Star Trek_. But when I actually watch it, it's not nearly as bad as I always think of it.

 - ( http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=91) I cannot comprehend a situation where paying for alcohol is equivalent to covering pizza except maybe in the case of a children's BD party and the parents of birthday child drinking after.

 - spent a full day dicking around on the Blue Bloods Wikia site. A very long no-point detail list of what specifically I did and justifications for everything can be found here; http://bluebloodstv.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:Pixie_child/self-absorbed_mind_drop

 - I have found a new way to be horrified and very amused at the same time; http://wonkette.com/. shifting blame + recs found at 2AM )

 - Wow, I'm getting a little political lately. I know it is just through quoting one of the awesome-ness of one of the coolest "Old Guys" on TV, but still. They're directly currently politically-related, so it feels pretty damn close. And while I'm pretty sure no one on my f-list** is a [what's the US equivalent of Canada's Conservative party? I can't keep the two names separate because unlike up here in the land of "Universal" health care, neither words are (as far as I know) words in the English language], but just in case, I apologise. I don't want to offend anyone. Well, not unless you would vote the illiterate media whore, ah, "companion". Then I am not going to say anything in your regard, because I'm a firm believer in the rights of everyone, but you really challenge that.
  **reading this and not a member of my f-list? Seriously? Well, after questioning your sanity (^_^), I invite you to contact me either through commenting, PM-ing via LJ or DW, or emailing me! If I haven't scared you off yet, I'm almost guaranteed to be more than willing to babble incoherently with you.

 - suddenly overwhelmed by 14-year-old guilt from back when I spent two weeks with my aunt and uncle. an instance where I was reminded how everything is a reflection on my father )

 - I'm easily amused. Apparently, Jeri Ryan's birth last name is Zimmerman. cue Star Trek-related giggles
    - also just learned that she turned down a cameo offer to be in (Star Trek) Nemesis, and only asked Kate Mulgrew after. I have nothing against Jeri Ryan, but seriously? Janeway made much more sense than Seven of Nine to appear.

 - this is super cute; http://www.kimonostownhouse.com/

 - I fucking hate the '07 layout of Microsoft Word, but I [well, my OSAP grant] paid for it and it would be stupid to pay for a downgrade just because I'm a stubborn jackass when it comes to change. I just wish I could do the same thing with it as I did for running Windows Vista (I've got it set to look like Windows '98).

 - I really like using DreamWidth as my alpha journal for many reasons, but the major ones are that the posting interface just feels cleaner and the staff is so damn helpful and friendly. Also, because I don't have to fight with logging in and DW allows me to cross-post. That being said, I guess LJ has spoiled me because I find it incredibly inconvenient not to be able to tag my entries with a tick-box list and it drives me up the wall when I want to have more than one space at a time, because you just can't do it in the Rich Text format (they are removed in the post), and if you put the   into the code box then switch to Rich Text for any reason, they are removed then as well. Little things, but they get to me.

 + another thing I had intended to add to my list of upcoming posts; a work-in-progress meme. It is actually one of the few things I could have done in the last few weeks, because it would require little thought, except that there are at least 75+ files in my "in progress" folder and have no idea how to compile the list without having to copy/paste or re-type all the file names out.
fai_dust: Star Trek; DS9: 7x03 (.back on track)

...I'm still alive? Just sayin'. Mostly because if I say so now, I'll remember to post a longer update tomorrow.
 
(1) I've got two long text files of point-form, one about all the Law & Order I've been watching in my 24/5 (my mom drives me up the wall on weekends) at home and one that proves I believe I'm the center of the universe
(2) I went to a Melissa Ethridge concert last Saturday, which was my mom's birthday gift.
(3) Prompt demands disguised as requests of at least 10 things per, in an attempt to acomplish at least one thing per day.
(4) Major things in my life aside from my health and school are looking up.
 
spoiler (of upcoming posts):
1. Huh. After 2+ weeks of watching Law & Order then last night's episode of The Daily Show; Huh. Jon Stewart looks kind of like E.A.D.A. Mike Cutter [aka Linus Roache] (the guy who took over from McCoy in the last two seasons). Well, I guess, Cutter looks like Jon Stewart (I think, assuming Roache is younger then (than? I hate these two words) Stewart, but whatever. Maybe that's why I warmed up to him so quickly (and in no way because I refuse to admit it's because I can relate to him via his thing for Rubirosa).
2. I could have sworn it was K. T. Tunstall who sang "What I Wanna Know", not Serena Ryder. Then again, I hadn't realized that I was a fan of Ryder until last Saturday, so (to quote cassievalentine, in a compleatly unrelated context), what the hell do I know?

edit(1): (speaking of watching tDS...) "We're at war? Again? I don't want to be a pain in the ass, but don't we already have two wars? You know, wars aren't kids, where you don't have to pay attention to the youngest one because the older two will take care of it. Not a baby war." ... "So, predictably, two days after the sanctions we just start bombing the shit out of them."
fai_dust: Star Trek; DS9: 7x03 (.back on track)

I have been home since Sunday. I am still feeling crazy, but to the few friends I mentioned my, uh, experimentation with my meds, it was informative. The second night, I actually had Greg a little worried because I was so mellow (and not bouncing off the walls or wanting to spin around every thirty minutes), happy just to watch Andromeda and either doodle or play Solitare.

Also, because I am too ADD to work on the over-due holiday gifts, I have been staring at a story board for one of my own conceps that will never see the light of day, and coming up with 'clever' t-shirt designs for a specific tries-too-hard character. ∴ this lead to me having to check with Google to see if it was "Rule 43" or "Rule 34", and I re-found this; http://www.xkcd.com/305/ Likely most of the internet population has read it before, but it's silly and cute.

PS (another dumb quote); I can't get "All right, you liberal pansy sex fiends! 1940s morality is back and it's going to set you fuckers straight!" out of my head. Which is not abnormal, but what should be at least a little worring is that even as an uptight, margenly homophobic, mock (as in, not from a real comic), Steve Rogers still just seems 'quirky'. (from this mock, which I've rec-ed before and am sure most of you have seen as well.)
fai_dust: BtVS: 1x12 - Prophecy Girl (.sick)
Yesterday's problem has sorted itself out, pretty much. I can understand people again, but it does take some effort. Luckily (in regards to communicating with insensitive jackasses), I usually respond (and generally speak) so fast that my delay just makes me seem close to average and just a little slow.


CMHC is run by doctors who gave themselves their MD )


I'm going to see my GP today. He listens to me and tries to help.
fai_dust: battlestar 2003: 1x02 - Water (.breakdown)

I'm having hallucinations, this time worse then anything I can remember that wasn't caused by a week of no sleep. So I couldn't go to school today. Also, I missed Thursday because I couldn't walk. This is not good.

Lots of weird shit going on, none of it staying in my head long enough to post. And my minset has been just this side of too serious to be fully happy. Yuck.

So to go with my mindset (and because I've run out of funny/light hearted drama with silly banter, not to mention attempting to shake a rather peculiar image from my crazy-brain), I present you quotes from Law and Order 6x23, because even though the whole episode is depressing on every level, it's got that whole moral-delema from both perspectives that caused so much contraversy and a lot of character bulding. blah,blah[mini rant/review of ep],blah,blah )
.
You can quit the profession, Claire. You just can't quit the human race. )
 
And now for two other TV related bitching points;
- Big Bang Theory; did anyone else get the impression that whole creepy Raj fantasizing about the squeeky girl was an excuese to get away with the dance sequance?
- Mr. Sunshine; I liked the pilot, although it felt like Matthew Perry took all my favorite aspects of his character in Studio 60 and used them in this. Not that I'm complaining, mind you. It was cute. And if it manages to stay the way it was set up, it won't make it past a full season. Suck is the way of comedy with quazi non-PC humor.
fai_dust: battlestar 2003: 1x04 - Act Of Contrition (.wish me luck)

Just back from dinner/drining at a friends (+TV; Eureka 1x12 & Supernatural 1x03 [assuming the pilot counts as one ep]) so I am a little tipsy.
    - also, home safe, Liz. Sorry I couldn't call; I can't find the bloody phone, but I did send you an email, so don't worry.
 
Life Update: Lately, by the end of class and on weekends, I've been utterly exausted and while that's no excuese, I am sorry for flaking. If anyone needs to contact me, I've created a temp. email address so I can avoid the terror that is my inbox; eccentricavoidance@onlytoexcess.org
 
I am enjoying school for the most part, but it's taking a lot out of me. I will make all the posts I have noted in my notebook eventually (if I had any sort of cell phone, I could concider upgrading to a smart phone (?) just so I could use the LJ app like [personal profile] colls).
 
PS; Dragon; Naturally Speaking is a pain in the ass. I've tried using it multipul times to get the very late holiday fics types and it gets, like, one of every five or six words correct. Phhhhhhhh
 
edit: speaking of drinking, refer to here (LJ) or here (DW)  ^_^
fai_dust: battlestar 2003: 1x06 - Litmus (.pessimistic)

Holy... Well, that flu thing I mentioned? Has moved into my chest and become something else. But since I finally couldn't justify it anymore, I decided to tackle my inbox. Big mistake; over 3000 unread emails. Now, granted, at least half are bound to be LJ alerts about comms I "track", but still, it's overwealming. I'm sorry if you're waiting on me. I'll do the best I can.

explination for the RENT post: when I get sick for a streach of time, I get pathetic and that song either gets me off my ass or really cranky. Or at least, it always has until two days ago. It didn't seem to do much then, but I chalk that up to what has probably become a lung infection.

fai_dust: marvel comics: NewWarriorsIV - issue #05 (.stay positive)

I've been feeling very crappy the last few days; sorry for no posts. However, I must say, one major cool factor to being fdown here is that (obviously) I'm regestering as having a US IP address so I can watch Daily Show clips to my hearts content. Lewis Black is totally bug-nuts love. Also, Wanda Sykes kicks ass and if I were to ever get an old-man crush (which, eww, but if the Earth rotated backwards and I liked men), it would be on Richard Belzer, because, seriously, there are no words. Ooh, and this Melissa Ethridge clip - I know the whole gay marrage thing has been gone over to death, but she's, like, my favorite artest and it's funny.
   EDIT: Warning; if you decide to follow this link and the pre-clip add is for Jose Cuervo and causes the page to darken, hit mute! The sound is way louder than the clip and will cause you shock and pain. It's like they're giving you a small sample of the potential hangover their product contains!
    Edit(2): (another gay-rights thing, sorry) Lewis Black on Prop 8 (& misc. props); http://www.thedailyshow.com/watch/thu-november-4-2004/back-in-black---election-results - for rome reason, this reminds me of [personal profile] lilpocketninja . Probably because of the shit survay she had in her class a while back.
  
Liz: I scored another gigantic bottle of vodka for less then $24! Shall we see how much of a dent we can make in it some weekend evening?
fai_dust: Questionable Content #1696 (.sick: sleepless)

Alive and (semi) functional. I'm buzzing at a friend's house (love you, [personal profile] conser) watching my Eureka S1 DVDs & hoping to be able to work on December holiday gifts tomorrow. Because while it's doubtful I'll get them done in time, I'd really like to.
 
Speaking of updates, I am no longer confined to my bed (in cases the at a friends' wasn't obvious) as I have been in the past week.
 
YAY BOOZE!
fai_dust: BtVS: 1x12 - Prophecy Girl (.sick)
See the subject? (i_want_2, you can bite me. ^_^) Yeah. Utterly physically exausted. Been feeling like crap for almost two weeks, Tuesday was beyond bad and I can barely move without feeling like I may collaps. Ooh, and I have an exam in less then two hours.
 
But still. Not dead.
