Contrary to popular belief, I’m not playing hooky today due to Harry Potter. Yesterday I was feeling off-kilter all day, very pissy in fact (and need to apologize to my co-workers on Monday because of it… because I really was right on that cusp of being out of line, IMHO).
Woke up this morning with very sharp stomach pains – and have been dealing with that off and on all morning. Mind you – I’ve been dealing with this off and on for the past two weeks or so. I’ll be fine for a couple days, and then have a stretch of three days of ow. I’m 99% sure it’s all stress related. But I’ve left a message with my doctor to see if I can schedule some sort of an appointment, preferably for the 3rd of August, when I’m already taking a half-day. It’s annoying, but I can deal with it until then one way or the other.
But goddess forbid that it’s not just a weird stomach bug, and something more chronic, like IBS. Because I’ve had a LOT of stomach/intestinal issues recently. A lot of them – averaging probably 10 days a month at least. And it needs to end.
Ahem… anyway, off that TMI bandwagon…
So I’m home. Parked for the most part in front of the A/C because it’s humid enough outside that MY hair has the slightest curl at the end of all of my wispies (no small feat, that.) Since we have a few of the guys coming over for this weekend’s Mega d20 Modern Gaming Insanity, I’m also using the time to get some of the basics done today… wash sheets & towels, do dishes, scrub the bathroom.
And I learned something the hard way this morning. Corelleware bowl + linoleum floor = shattered chaos. Seriously. I’ve NEVER seen something shatter into so many little pieces. I did a sweeping and vacuuming of the kitchen floor, but I imagine I’ll be finding teeny tiny pieces of the bowl for months. When he gets home, I may ask Erich to help me push the fridge aside just a bit because I think quite a few of the shards flew under there.
Went out to dinner with whishastar last night at Faneuil Hall. Got soaked to the bone on the way over, but had a great time over dinner. She seems to be doing pretty well on her wedding planning. We chatted about Who, including my continuing “I feel so weird…” attitude regarding yesterday’s entry. We chatted about other fanwank stuff. We chatted Potter. We chatted legal rights over same-sex marriage. All in all, a good conversation about random things that just kept bouncing back and forth between topics.
I got home around 9:30 last night, and was just too worn out from my day and feeling grimy due to the rain to do much. Didn’t sleep well, though, due to the humidity.
And now Elly has climbed onto me to nurse on my shoulder because she needs comfort, so I guess I’m typing one handed for a while. She’s such a poor little kitten.
My mom called Erich last night – apparently the wedding invites are already showing up to people out of state. Scary. So I imagine I’ll start seeing RSVP envelopes show back up starting tomorrow. Maybe even today from some of the Providence crowd. I need to do some serious wedding info updating. I’ve neglected it for a while. So perhaps I’ll get that done today – get our registries up there, and additional directions and such.
We got the estimate from the florist, and while my eyes popped out – my mom apparently thought the price was quite reasonable (and came in at nearly half of what she was estimating… so she’s REALLY happy). Which is good. So that’s now a huge check off the list.
This thing seems to be coming together. I may actually be able to relax!
t-minus 8 weeks from this weekend…
Oh… almost (oh thank god… Elly left… although now I have a black shirt coated in white fur. bleh) forgot – I finished uploading the Series 2 Confidentials. They’re with the Series 2 episodes on the master upload list (for folks newer to my flist, just search my tags by the *wink* tag… easy to find). As soon as I finish this entry, I’ll paste those links in.
Which also reminds me – BBC America is apparently completely screwed up with their Graham Norton broadcast announcements. David Tennant wasn’t on last week as they had listed, and my cable service doesn’t have him listed for this week. Did I miss it somehow? Anyone in the Who fandom know? I mean, I’ve SEEN the episode, but the U.S. broadcast includes the Cooldown, too.
Anyway… I’ll stop. It’s after noon. I should eat.
