My external hard drive arrived today. It's a Western Digital, and it's so SMALL. I love it! I'm also really glad that [livejournal.com profile] blackpaladin talked me into getting the portable version; even if Inanna needs to be plugged in practically all the time, she's still super-portable and only needs one plug...

I got a weird glitch, though, when I plugged it into [livejournal.com profile] blackpaladin's EEE (running Eeebuntu). I forgot to write it down, so I'll wait until he gets home to try it again. I don't want to break my new toy. :(

I hope everyone is having a good day. Once I managed to sleep off my migraine--missing my therapy appointment because of it, sigh--I felt pretty decent. Also, new hard drive yay!

Woke up and felt really oogy this morning. It ended up being some massive dehydration--I was seriously sick at work last night. It's been an interesting day--I feel much better, but I've also gone through a lot of gatorade.

I don't have much to say, actually. Just wanted to toss a quick update at ya.

cassildra: A silver pegasus on a purple shield. (fandom: marco from 4400)
I am currently introducing [livejournal.com profile] blackpaladin to The 4400 (Wikipedia link; contains spoilers!). I snagged the whole series for a ridiculously nice price at Borders, and my mother has already asked to borrow it. XD

This reminds me--does anyone have a copy of the opening theme song? I kind of loves it.

This post brought to you by random fansquee and the... like, four people on my flist who have seen and enjoy the show.

I saw Watchmen yesterday. Everything I'd say about it has been said before, honestly, so let's just leave it as "omg WIN". It was pretty in IMAX, although the magnificent cerulean wang was kind of excessively large. I thought the gore and nudity was a bit gratuitous, and spoiler for those who never read the comic ). Overall, though, despite it not being a Happy Funtime Movie, I greatly enjoyed it--but we all know I have a Thing for shades of grey in fiction.

I have work this evening, which will be kind of ten times better 'cause I actually have shoes that will support my feet! I'm strangely sore all over, though--when I take my Imitrex, I also take three Aleve with it, to simulate the... uh, I forget the name of the New Migraine Uber-Drug, but it's naproxin and Imitrex, so it's the same thing for cheaper.

Anyway. After three Aleve, the knot at the base of my skull shouldn't hurt anymore. It's been bothering me for a while now, but I thought the Aleve would make it less cranky. Really, all I want now is a muscle relaxant and a professional massage. [livejournal.com profile] blackpaladin gives great massages and knows how to work knots out of my muscles, but it's gotten to the point where I can't, in good conscience, ask him to keep doing that kind of thing--it involves a lot of work and by the time we head to bed, he's too tired to work on that knot the way I seem to need.

....lol, magnificent cerulean wang

The first seven (7) people to respond to this post will get something made by me.

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:

- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make.
- What I create will be just for you.
- It'll be done this year (2009).
- No requests-- it could be anything. It may be a mix CD. It may be a poem.
I may draw or paint something.
I might bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows?
- I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.

The catch is that if you don't re-post this offer, the bargain is void!


In other news, today has been exceedingly productive. I caught myself before I got miserable and bored and depressed, so I've checked my job websites and confirmed references. I've played Puzzle Quest and been in a scene on WantonWicked.

I would be bored, except that my friend Dan who is no longer on LJ has given me a silly challenge: I am to write an epic poem about Reese's Pieces.

Here we go! If it doesn't totally suck, I will post it here afterward.

Also that reminds me in a roundabout way: VARIS, I NEED TO ASK YOU A QUESTION.

This morning I have:

Worked on improving my resume, looked for jobs, enrolled in an Excel class at one of the local libraries, and looked over some of the worksheets for said class.

I still feel stupid and ineffectual, but hey. Crap happens, amirite? I'm going to go read more Magey goodness.

I feel terrible because of back pain. I'm going to suck it up and take a Vicodin. If you need me for some reason or another, and you have my cell number, feel free to call. Otherwise, I will most likely be on this evening while [livejournal.com profile] blackpaladin is at his Amber game.

Or, you know, I'll be sleeping. Stupid me screwing up my back on the 10th anniversary of the Powerpuff Girls... I'mma miss the marathon! :(

This morning, as [livejournal.com profile] blackpaladin and I huddled under the covers to fight off the cold, the topic somehow managed to swing around to the old "the internets are tubes" meme, and we tried to figure out what kind of tubes the internets are made of.

I declared that they're obviously made of fallopian tubes, because there ARE girls on the internets, and also, they have an irrational tendency to be stupid at random times of the month. (Multiple fallopian tubes = multiple uteri = ALL PMS, ALL THE TIME)

Meh, it was funnier at the time.

Today isn't the best day. I'm once again working on my (exceedingly laughable) resume, and generally feeling pretty crummy about myself. I also cancelled my appointment with my neuro for a handful of reasons, not the least of which being that while I love talking to the man, I hate doctors on principle.

SO. I'm going to be selfish and ask for cute animals in the comments, or hot girls/guys, or whatever you think would cheer me up. What I really want is an origami dragon from Dragon Cave, but lol, that's not going to happen anytime soon.

GIP! [livejournal.com profile] e_mily made this for me. She's amazing and talented and omg I love her.

Today was supposed to be full of getting out of the house and being productive, but instead, I woke up with a migraine. Ergo, I woke up around 2 and just got out of the shower.

The weather is really nasty, and I'm glad I don't have plans for tonight. It is GROSS and slippery out there.

I have a terrible pain in my neck, and fully plan on asking for a neck massage when [livejournal.com profile] blackpaladin gets home.

Nothing new to report otherwise. I've got an appointment with my neurologist tomorrow, so... *shrug*

I am a happy, happy little girl right now. Hook is on AMC! Bangerang! (Of course, after hearing [livejournal.com profile] s00j's Wendy Trilogy (Lyrics can be found here under the album Sirens), I want to play Red-Hand Jill on [livejournal.com profile] milliways... yeah, I'm hooked on filk. Also, if you're interested in the genre and haven't heard about S. J. Tucker's medical bills, please visit [livejournal.com profile] saveours00j.)

RIGHT. Now that I've crowded enough links in there to keep you busy for a while... I don't know what to say, honestly. I love this movie so much that I'm getting distracted by it.

I guess that's the state of the Nicki at the moment. :)

So, I got an SDHC card for my birthday--16gb--and I apparently suck at technology. I managed to break the thing in two days. Note to self--don't leave the SDHC cards in the Eee when shutting down. >_>

Nothing exciting is going on. Mondays are nice, calm days, and while [livejournal.com profile] blackpaladin and [livejournal.com profile] psywildfire are out gaming this evening, I might finally feel up to doing some of my laundry. I hate laundry and basements. :(

In other news, lady issues behind cut )

I finished the first season of Heroes yesterday. How much am I going to hate Season 2, you guys? I've heard such bad things... x.x

I don't know what all to write, so I'm gonna end this here. Have a good day!

While I love my mother and hanging out with her, and I love Magee, the 0 level has so much lead in the walls from the CT suite and Radiation that it is impossible to connect to their wireless. Ergo, I'm writing this in Word while I chill with my mother at work.

Today has been fairly good, and pretty productive. I bought myself bus tickets so I don't have to fuss with cash, picked up a few things at Geagle, donated blood, and had lunch with mom. I'm probably going to head home soon, though—there's a mountain of dishes waiting for me, and I'm sure if I looked I could find something else that needed done before TND.

Okay, apparently Toys R Us is selling netbooks. -eyes the nurse warily- I don't think it quite sciences, but what do I know?

I started playing with my OKCupid account, filling it out and the like, and as soon as I'd added a picture, I started getting more IM s and messages than before. Granted, my profile kind of reads like a stereotypical Hot Bi Babe's, but it just kind of amazes me how little people will read before they message you. Also, I got messaged by a 50+ guy from North Carolina, which was kind of creepy. Dude was my parents' age and he wanted to talk about being poly and various kinks. I need to take [livejournal.com profile] blackpaladin's advice and put something on the profile about “anyone over 35 is too creepy, kthxbai!”

Eh, I don't know if I want to go home yet. It's supposed to be nasty outside, and ew, freezing rain. I know I've got to deal with it eventually, but I don't want to move yet. My head feels weird, anyway. It's the first time I've donated blood since my migraines returned, so I'm still getting used to the sensations.

Speaking of donating, I got a free water bottle today! I was jazzed. Little things amuse me.

I almost forgot to tell you guys. I have the best boyfriend ever! He brought me 6 cupcakes from Geagle, put one candle in each, lit them, and presented it to me. It was so unexpected—hell, I thought we'd done all of our celebrating this weekend!--but so sweet. I'm so lucky.

And now I'm at Chez Strobel playing PitchCar, so I need to get going. Thanks for all the well-wishes, guys. It was an awesome birthday weekend.

Ugh. I woke up an hour and 15 minutes later than usual, which threw my schedule into a tizzy. It sounds weird, but holy crap, I had planned on doing two loads of laundry and a few more dishes, but apparently not. My brain is complaining about getting up at all.

Neither [livejournal.com profile] blackpaladin nor I have been sleeping well lately. I don't know what's up with him, but I think mine is partially because I have that whole empathic thing going on, and he's just not sleeping. I'm trying to pull all of his restlessness, because I have the option of sleeping in and he doesn't. If I can work things right, I'll have managed to pull 99% of it by this weekend. That's saying it doesn't go away on its own, of course.

I played a couple of new games last night--Primordial Soup and Pandemic. (Links go to Wikipedia, since BoardGameGeek is down as of writing this.) Soup took me a bit to get used to, because of the way the strategy works. Pandemic is a deeply intense, nerve-wracking, AWESOME game of cooperation. However, it's so intense that I ended up dreaming about playing it in bed. Weird dreams, yo.

It has been determined that I am the female [livejournal.com profile] jameel, for better or worse. I think that it's awesome and hope that it doesn't squick my boyfriend TOO badly. ;D

...Illyana has been in a weird mood lately. She usually scratches at things to get attention during the day, but chills out for the most part at night. The past couple of nights, though, she's been demanding attention from [livejournal.com profile] blackpaladin and I. It got so bad the night before last that we had to kick her out of the bedroom--and she STILL spent the night scratching at the door. I don't know what's going on with her. She doesn't need her nails to be clipped, because that was taken care of last night, and she still went wild. ...And now she's tearing around the house. This is my first experience in living with cats, so I'm not sure if she's going nuts or if something's setting her off.

I am going to stop rambling now and start reading Mage: the Awakening in preparation for the endgame on the Mods. --although, remind me, isn't there a technical name for a soul-jar, and if so, what is it?

However, there is a possibility that I will be running a World of Darkness game locally. More news as this story develops.

So tired today. I feel like I barely slept. And [livejournal.com profile] blackpaladin had to finish shipping, so I offered to go along to keep him company... I hate malls in December. But we're done! And there is no more shopping! And omg yay!

There is Happy Feet now, and [livejournal.com profile] bluemoon_991's party tonight, and presents to give out. It will be good.

I can't get an internet connection here at AJ Polumbo, so I'm writing this in OpenOffice. I'm here watching the lovely and intelligent [livejournal.com profile] saberpilot walk across the stage. Unfortunately, she was in the first group that was announced, so ... I've been playing solitaire and clapping politely since. I know it's rude, but I came for [livejournal.com profile] saberpilot, my dear friend, and I don't know anyone else here. >:(

I'm sitting here with [livejournal.com profile] nierfenheimer, [livejournal.com profile] bluemoon_991, [livejournal.com profile] caity_love, and [livejournal.com profile] evil_dr_reef. We're all just hanging out in the top right corner of the top tier of the AJ Polumbo seating. We were silly and cheered when we heard [livejournal.com profile] saberpilot's name being called. Her face lit up. I'm so glad we can be here for her.

Next up, we're going to hit a coffee shop and then some random dude's house to avoid [livejournal.com profile] saberpilot's evil dad. It's not my story to tell, so I won't, but suffice it to say—as much as I bitch about my dad, hers is far, far worse. People are stupid and evil.

I think that I'm just going to keep writing about things that make me happy, beyond the end of that meme. Yesterday made me happy, despite my angsty post. I got reminded that people care about me and love me, and that they're willing to help me. I have a boyfriend who is willing to bend over backwards for me. I have people who are willing to get me help with my terrible math skills. I am truly blessed, by whatever deities exist, because these people are in my life. I'm blessed because I know all of you.

It's kind of neat to be able to write this on my laptop. Inanna is so light and easy to use. I love my Eee.

....oh dear, they're talking about visiting the statue of Scary Jesus on the Duquesne campus. Why are we so fucked up? My friends are fucked up. I will find a picture of the statue later on, if anyone wants.

Inanna seems to have better battery power when there's no wireless involved. It makes sense, but i'm amazed at the difference it makes.

Haha, ftw, I just pounded [livejournal.com profile] bluemoon_991 and [livejournal.com profile] caity_love within a minute of each other. Haaawt.

I am exceedingly tired. For some reason, I jolted awake around 03:45, and was restless for about a half hour afterward. I'm just glad I didn't wake [livejournal.com profile] blackpaladin--he's been sleeping poorly enough as it is lately. Thank goodness tomorrow is Saturday. Maybe he'll be able to sleep in a bit.

We're suddenly talking about tea, hold on, I need to pay attention to this. I really want tea. Caffeiiiiine.

Okay, I'm down to one bar on Inanna, so I'm going to save and shut her down. There's almost a page of bullshit here, anyway.

ETA: This is me being sleep deprived. :D
