Up and Down Week

This week has been up and down. I had ISDN training most of the week at work, which meant I had someone sitting behind me in my cubicle for six hours a day. The training was useful and my trainer friendly, but having someone in my face all day left me frazzled. My mom had biopsies this week and is waiting for results to see if she has cancer again, so there has been some stress there as well.

Tuesday pandara came over and we hung out until we got hungry and then ventured out for food. At first we went to the Red Eye Cafe, but we were quickly driven out of the place by overly loud and aggressive ukulele-playing. We wound up at Steak n’ Shake instead, and overall I had a very lovely evening with her. I met pandara recently at the poly meetup, and we’re connecting well and developing an interesting friendship. I can’t wait to meet her beau.

Wednesday I went over to lildomino’s to hang out and watch TV before bed. We talked a lot about what would happen if one of us died – it’s a subject that came up at nursing school and has been on lildomino’s mind. She pointed out that if I was badly injured, decisions would be made by my mother, whose emotional state is unstable at best. I should really look into that.

Thursday night I went over to mishiell’s, and we took advantage of my earlier schedule to go out to eat. When we got back to mishiell’s we watched The Chronicles of Riddick: Dark Fury. I haven’t seen any of the other Chronicles of Riddick (and hadn’t heard good things), but I did like Dark Fury, mostly because it was directed by Peter Chung (the Aeon Flux guy). Now I’m curious to see the live-action movies, although I expect disappointment.

Friday I got together with A@ and Jobe to role-play with elbanditorojo. icespark was invited to join us, but by the time she got back from derby practice she was just too tired. I had a lot of fun playing Warhammer 40,000: Dark Heresy, and for once we actually got a finish a mission! I think next elbanditorojo is going to run D&D for us, and I’m hoping to start a new D&D campaign soon as well.

Today icespark and I planned a cleaning day, but aside from doing laundry and opening mail, mostly we just snuggled and watched DVDs. We ordered Chinese food and watched Robot Chicken before icespark headed home and I went over to lildomino’s to hang out with hotarugirl and her while hotarugirl is in town. lildomino is awake, but hotarugirl is very sleepy.

Tomorrow, icespark and I are traveling to Ohio for roller derby. icespark’s team is playing the Gem City Rollergirls in a public scrimmage at Skateworld of Kettering in Dayton. We have to get up pretty early to go to Dayton, so I’m heading back to icespark’s tonight to sleep so I don’t make her late in the morning. Hope everyone else’s weekend is going well!




Which character from Alice in Wonderland Are You?

White Rabbit

The White Rabbit is always nervous, and late.

"No, no, no, no, no, no, no, I’m overdue.
I’m really in a stew.
No time to say goodbye, hello!
I’m late, I’m late, I’m late!"

Just an FYI, if you want someone else to make decisions for you, you need to draw up a Medical Power of Attorney. Then you need to carry a card or something in your wallet listing that persons contact info.

Medical Power of Attorney
Cool. That's what I thought. My sister has MPoA for my mom, so she can hospitalize her when she's crazy.

I hope you had a good time in Dayton with icespark and that next week is a good one!

The weekend was good. Besides the bout, I got to see many cool friends I haven't seen in ages, so the trip was doubly-cool.

Re: Great!
That sounds like a nice, lowkey evening.

I finally got my second syllabus done, after a few hours of slackage. Going to try to be asleep within the next hour so I can get up relatively early. Luckily, I can still function during the week on an average of six hours of sleep a night, so it's not so tragic if I can't sleep right away.

Still addicted to House.

Re: Great!
The evening is definitely nice, and a good break from dealing with my mother's crazy.

Good job being eventually productive! Go get some sleep!

Need to watch the last season of House now that a new season is starting...

Sounds like a very full week. Hope everything with your mom turns out alright.

Was awesome seeing you again. Can't wait until next time.

very full week
It was, indeed, and this coming week looks even busier!

I'm trying to be extra nice and patient with my mom until she gets her test results back.

I was wonderful to see you. We'll have to schedule that next get-together soon. B^)

Re: very full week
Definately :) I e-mailed you my availability for this week. I will let you know my availability next week when my manager makes my schedule. I think he's avoiding it because we had the routine mass exodus after back to school. *hugs*

Pitchblack is good if you like ravenous-creatures-attack movies. I liked it quite a bit actually.

The other Riddick movie... watch the director's cut. The theater release is just as bad as everyone says, the director's is almost a completely different movie. Same plot, just... a better cut. Like the difference between hamburger meat and a prime rib steak. Why they though the theater release was the better of two I have no clue.

Chronicles of Riddick
Ooh... thanks for the advice. I'll definitely keep that in mind.

How go things with the new place?

New place is going well. It would be nice if I weren't completely broke that is. *twitch*
