Instead I played video games for a period of time in excess of 16 hours. After which I got very angry at my room for still being a mess, my furniture for being in the way of unpacking, and my body for being broken in so many ways. And now my bed is on the other side of the room where it should be and I can start trying to figure out where things go.


Take that!

At long last, and after many travails, I am finally sans gallbladder. Now I just have to wait for my belly to heal up and then deal with the tooth that randomly decided to die the night before surgery.

It's been an April.

Good Things:
- Going swimming after finishing up writing
- Girlfriend off work for a week because they don't want to give her 40 hours and she worked all of Summerfest
- 5 Guys veggie sandwich
- 2 large loads of laundry finished and off the line

Bad Things:
- The Fruitfly Invasion in my kitchen
- Losing a full day's work because the client doesn't like it and it'll be that much worse to revise
- Still covered in water weeds
- Laundry still needs hanging

Inappropriate Solutions:
- Eating too much snack food
- Playing video games instead of painting
- Repeatedly turning the rats upside down

So. Tired.

And I do not know why. Stress levels have been high, but not that high. Sickness has been present, but not that bad. But today, the only reason I'm thinking about getting dressed is because my feet are cold. I might be allowed to take the day off. Still gonna try to fold the clothes, pack some books, etc, but that hands and knees scrub I wanted to do is off the list. Feh.

Did get some drawing practice done )

Have vestigial Twitter account set up. Attempted to find some sort of tolerable way to read Facebook, since everything useful seems to be buried. Could not find client without horrible screen devouring interface. Could not get RSS feeds of friends' updates. Could not actually read anything meaningful out of webpage. Said screw it after half an hour, shoved a handful of people in "Close Friends" (which is not an accurate description for "people whose updates I need to read") and shoved off. This is about the 4th or 5th time I've tried and I have to say that I cannot grow to be ok with Facebook. Pleh.

Anyway, back to wallowing. Today, I am the noble flan.

I am allowing myself to take a half day today since last week's workstravaganza and a stressful relationship talk have me pretty well wiped. Tomorrow will involve kicking back into high gear, as I have a client who wants 15,000 words on just about every blood test there is. I am not even making myself do heavy cleaning or packing, something I feel guilty about, but at least a little recovery time is needed.

The weather has been schizophrenic, but it was very nice just before sunset, when [profile] moments_awayand I went for a walk down by the lake. The sky and the water were eerily pretty - a cross between a hyperrealistic video game and a Thomas Kinkade painting, complete with double translucency layer on top of the lake, huge bubble-gum pink fluffy-topped clouds and distant lighthouse. Saw a lot of red-breasted mergansers, with their darkwave hairstyles, as well as what might have been a baby one? It was roughly the same shape, but red and about the size of a squirrel. Also, I made and devoured an enormous smothered burrito.

I have reached that point in the workpocalypse where I actually have no idea what to do tonight if I'm not packing, cleaning or typing. It's a mystery.

I think I am probably sick. Queue woobly eyes. You see, it was lovely and glorious and warm, and now it is cold and grey and sad, and my head is filled with confusing. So, clearly I have some kind of plague...allergy...plaguergy thing. As evidenced by the huge number of typoes I've had to edit out of this post and the fact that the amount of work which usually takes three hours is only half done in that amount of time. It'll be a while before I can move on to the other types of work I need to do to day. Also, I am a monkey.

In good news, this particular plague is not a misery inducing kind. It's just a brain-stoppy variety. So once I muddle my way through some more word mining and get into the picture drawing, I should be home free. No brain is actually required for that part.

This message brought to you by my desire to subsist entirely on leftover easter chocolate and sweet milky tea.

I'm not very depressed today, though!

The last day of the trip is the right time to blog the first day, right? Sadly, I'm afraid it's not because it's been one long run of fast paced adventure that I haven't written. I'm just very lazy. Also, I had one of the worst air travel experiences to date.

things that happened! )

Sadly, Mr. Brain chose the other option, so I was up till 3 am.
On the other hand, I did finish the base colors on that one commission, and get the linework started on another.
