Assorted update stuff

Thanks to everyone who chimed in with birthday thoughts. Here's the excitement right now in my little world...

I got several people calling in to wish me well, which is always nice. I got a couple of birthday cards, one from my mother and one from my father-in-law. Each had checks in 'em, for equivalent amounts, and if I had 9 more I could make my car payment... ;) Karen's mother gave me some chocolate, and I got Karen some tangerine Jelly Bellies...not knowing that Karen's mom had already covered that contingency. Karen is getting us a new printer (actually a printer/scanner/fax combo, which is important as our old printer died) and also gave me season three of Buffy. Buffy is my new current obsession, in case you weren't aware.

I've been feeling not quite right for a week or so. Some parts of days are okay, but not enough of 'em. My stomach's been upset, and there's a vicious cycle (stomach upset, taking drugs to feel better, becoming drowsy, drinking caffeine to wake up, stomach becoming upset, lather, rinse, repeat) that I can't seem to get out of. I've spent all week in the IV Lab at work (a good thing) so I've been less stressed than I could be. For example, right now I'm caught up at work, so I can relax a little bit.

Since I haven't been feeling well, the housework is falling behind. I have tomorrow morning off, but between catching up on my sleep, taking my car in for repairs and trying to see my doctor, I don't know how much time I'll have for it. I feel bad about it, but it's not like my week so far has been filled with time where I've been healthy and not busy.

There will be more later. My thoughts are sort of scattered, for the abovementioned reasons. Happy 2/5, everyone. :)

All right, this means...
...I am now officially the only person in America who cannot understand the appeal of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

*sigh*

Re: All right, this means...
Perhaps you, like me, simply need to watch it from the beginning. And perhaps not.

Yeah, I told Rebecca I'd do that. Sometime.

Well, we now have the first three seasons on DVD. You're welcome to stop by when you're on this coast...

I've been obsessing on Buffy too. I bought the RPG, and I borrowed the DVDs and have been watching through the first season.

Re:
You know that MIB Scott Lesher runs GURPS Buffy at conventions, yes? You might want to make a trip to Shorecon for that. :) As a matter of fact, *I* may want to make a trip to Shorecon for that...assuming I can get there.

I have a much different opinion after I watched some of it. The writing is very tight, and the effects are...er, well, effective. Good stuff, IMHO.

what housework is so behind? We're caught up on laundry, I'm mostly keeping up with the dishes. Vaccuuming needs to be done, but that's typically a Friday task. I think you're being a little hard on yourself. Silly you.

Re: Be very very very afraid
Thanks for that info. I've just added you both as friends. No way in LJ to add you as commanding officers.

Should I add "USS Murgatroid" amongst my interests?

I don't know how often we'll use them. Ken wanted a log for Jellico, so I figured I'd make Storvik as well. I still need to make icons for us.

Sure!

You have icons. Lego ones. And perhaps also South Park ones. You can't tell me you can't find suitable fodder on the Murgatroid homepage.

Re: Be very very very afraid
I have a gazillion pictures I can use. Choosing only three will be the hard part. I think I'll start with the lego ones.

After all, they represent us so well. :)

By the way, the journal is live. Just putting some things in before I head to bed.

add us and I'll add you back.

I haven't shown Ken how to use it yet; I'm setting up both accounts.

I'll probably post my first post there next week.

Re: Be very very very afraid
I've posted my first log entry. I doubt they'll all be in character like this.

I haven't update the Murgatroid in a while...
