Summer's here. My kids are out of school and I can finally sleep in. yaaaaaaaaaay
Seeing as how I tend to work nights (I work at home, so it's difficult to get shit done while the kids are here), so I have this unhealthy tendency to go to bed around 4am, getting up each morning at 7:30 so I could get my daughter to school was... difficult.
It'd be fine if I could just go back to bed reliably at that point, but my son was in half-day Afternoon-only kindergarten, so I had to get him out to school around noon, which broke up any attempts at additional sleep even more.
So the last school year was difficult.
But next year they'll both be regular full-day school, so that should be a bit easier at least.
So, hey - I've been watching Dollhouse recently. I never watched it when it actually came out, forever ago. I think I had a bit of a hang-up about Eliza Dush...ku? How the hell do you spell her name anyway? The chick that played Faith on Buffy. Basically I always just saw her as the chick that played Faith on Buffy, and I wasn't entirely keen on Faith's character in Buffy.
But anyway, I found it on Netflix and figured why not? So I powered through season one, and it's actually pretty awesome. That episode between seasons one and two was freaky - threw me for a loop. I think I'm about 2 episodes into season 2 right now.
I also just finished Terry Pratchett's 4th Discworld book, Mort. It's the first TP book I've ever bothered to read (Yes, shame on me). It was cool. I think I'll make an effort to go through another one soon, it's just difficult deciding which to go for. So damn many books.
Oh and hey - holy shit, did they seriously just kill of *** **** in Game of Thrones? I keep seeing all of these people going on about how Melisandre was there, so you know... maybe she'll bring him back? Gaaaah.... I hope so. Fuck, if he actually stays dead. Fuck the crows. Seriously.
I recently came across this epic fan-theory about how Jon Snow wasn't really Ned Stark's son at all, but rather the son of Ned's sister. That she was raped by that Targaryen mad king, and so Jon Snow is actually the son of Lyanna (sp?) Stark, and the mother fucking mad king.
But if he's dead, obviously this isn't a theory that's going to... you know - go anywhere. At all. And that'd be super-lame.
I'm procrastinating right now.
I really ought to be working.
I've been sick the last couple days, but it's been a freaky kind of whatever-the-fuck-it-is. Seriously intense chest pain when I breath. Like sharp stabbing horror in my right lung and shoulder. It was a solid 9 on the pain scale for about 30 minutes two days ago. I keep oscillating back and forth between going to the ER. I would have gone yesterday if the pain hadn't started to go down noticeably. It's still hanging around but it's much more mild now, so I figure whatever the hell it is, it's going away on its own.
It's kind of stupid, because I have insurance. Good insurance. I just hate the fucking hospital.
But I know this whole 'avoiding the hospital thing' is gonna bite me in the ass one of these days. I actually had a MRSA infection earlier this year, and it took me nearly a week to finally go to a doctor and get some antibiotics.
Not that I knew it was MRSA... if I'd know it was MRSA I would have gone to the doctor a hell of a lot sooner.
I swear I disinfected the whole damn house after coming back from the doctor's office that day. The idea of either of my kids getting MRSA is fucking terrifying.
My son's 6th birthday party is this Saturday. His actual birthday is next Monday, but who the hell celebrates a birthday on a monday?
Only one kid has RSVPd though. I really hope more show up. None turned up last year and he was so bummed. But he was turning 5 and he's already long forgotten about it. Sixth birthdays don't tend to stick in the memory very long either, but he saw how neat a party his sister had this year (she had like 15 kids show up - it was crazy), so I feel like he'd be aware of the contrast a lot more this year.
Gah... okay, enough procrastinating. Off to work.
