THANK YOU EVERYONE for your kind words and thoughts. They mean so much to me, and I'm sorry (I went and posted a big angsty thing and then went back to my apartment...where the internet is down. (MY LIFE.)

I'm going to reply to you all individually now, but I wanted to do an immediate shout-out of love for my flist. :>

The phone rings, in the middle of the night,
My father yells 'What you gonna do with your Abby?'

Which song was this lyric from?

Get your own lyrics:


Ah. Irony. )

My father has cancer. Doctors found a tumor on his kidney. He's going into surgery to have it removed tomorrow, and everything looks like it's going to be a nice, neat, in-and-out removal. Coming on the tail end of a month in which two of my friends lost their fathers and others have seen their daddies in and out of the hospital, if I did not sit here and appreciate everything my dad has done for me, I wouldn't deserve to have him. Thankfully, he has an excellent doctor, and the outlook for a full recovery is quite good. Prayers and good thoughts for him would be appreciated.

For each of your characters, list five descriptors that sum him or her up. Then put ALL the words at once into Wordle, and see what kinds of characters loom large in your brain.

Soooo what's going on? I LIVE. (Madness)

I'm hanging out in the edlab at TC, waiting to eat pizza and discuss puppet scripts. WHICH REMINDS ME: MOAR PUPPETS. So much moar. Like six new episodes moar. I FAIL AT UPDATING RE: PUPPETS.

It also means that I have no time to compose this entry properly, so I'm just going to throw a bunch of stuff out there, and you can ignore it at your leisure.

Going to the doctor's sucks. HOW IS THIS SO COMPLICATED? I paid my copay and sat around for an hour and a half and all I got out of it was someone telling me my blood pressure (slightly high, which I knew) and my height, 5'6 (SHORTER THAN EXPECTED) and that the doctor was behind to the point that I'd have to take the rest of the day off work. I am going to have to spend a sick day to go to the doctor's office when I am not sick? Balls.

9 was disappointing. Pretty, very pretty but...if it wasn't an animated show for little kids, why the cutesy stuff? Not enough punk in the steampunk.

BEATLES ROCK BAND IS AWESOME BUT TOO SHORT. NEEDS MOAR BEATLES. DESIRE TO SING ABOUT LOVE AND STRANGE WOMEN LYING ABOUT IN THE HEAVENS WITH PRECIOUS STONES AND BOYS NAMED JUDE ONLY WHETTED. Respect and love for George exponentially increased. Good lord, it's gorgeous, too. All praise to the art team.

And...that's about it.
psychick: (Wut?)
Things that have happened to me today:

1) I won free candy from the vending machine at the office. Apparently vending machines have the ability to decide I am a winner, and act accordingly. Awesome.

2) My father has acquired a camera phone, which he has used to send me a picture of his turkey. It looks bigger than the dog was. I've asked that for his next trick, he send me a picture of mom's face when she sees it. If there's one thing Mom was definitely missing from her quasi-neoclassical design story for their house, it was a stuffed tom turkey with a three foot diameter. The taxidermist freeze-dried the head, guys. My dad has got to be careful to keep his dead turkey head out of the rain, okay?

3) I discovered that a fellow I went to college with has been incarcerated on charges relating to child pornography. There's a picture of him on the state's registered sex offenders website. What the hell.

Disney to Acquire Marvel Comics

I don't even know how to react to this. Other than to imagine that, somewhere, Warren Ellis has actually exploded.
psychick: (Shit)
Well.

That went about as badly as it could possibly have gone, save for Slarti.

Slarti is like internet Batman. No matter what's going wrong, he's got a plan, and has probably already fixed it.

Me, today I'm internet Croc.

ETA: Guys it was an internets editing glitch, accidentally created and easily fixed (if you have access to Slarti). I am not in lingering distress or anything.

To top it all off, I got something on my shirt and didn't notice it (cleverly hiding on the other side of a boob as it was) and have been walking around like a moron like this.

Yeah, I'm ready for today to be over.
psychick: (Fail)
So my hard dive is dead. This means I'll be getting online....sortof whenever I can, but not reliably until next week at the earliest.

:(

On the plus side, the new job is pretty nice so far!

WOOT!

I GOT A JOB!!!

My friend Katie was like "Oh, well I'm having to leave my part-time thing early to go work for FDNY, want me to give them your resume?" and I was like "HECK YES" and she was like "I did and they're going to call you" and I was like "AWESOME" and then they did and I was all rocking the phone interview, and then they wanted me to come in today and the guy I met with was super chill and they're like "next Tuesday?" and I went "ABSOLUTELY!"

And then I got a celebratory frapp. THE END.

:D
