I either have a bug or pretty bad allergies. My nose is plugged up so that I couldn't breathe last night. I finally passed out around 4/4.30am while watching Drake & Josh. I must have snored something fierce because my throat is all dry and scratchy and I can't stop doing the annoying dry throat cough :/ I'm drinking a lot of water but it's not helping. My mom did go out to get me Ricola cough drops and chicken soup though. That should help. Hopefully. It better! I have Frankenstein to watch this weekend. Although, as I'm writing this, my lungs are starting to hurt :/ In order to slightly amuse myself and to keep myself from dwelling too much on it, whenever I cough, I try to fake the Zoolander black lung cough.

I had a weird dream last night. It had Jack and Daniel as a couple but Jack was a Jack/Sherlock hybrid and Daniel was a Daniel/John hybrid. They looked like Jack and Daniel but they acted like a mix of them plus Sherlock and John. Whatever, Jack and Daniel were making out so I wasn't about to start complaining.

My brother was watching Enterprise earlier today and it was "In a Mirror, Darkly" but he had no idea what was going on, so I showed him "Mirror, Mirror" and he kept going 'Oh, I get it now! That must be what they were referencing.' It was amusing to watch :D

My Starfleet sweatshirt was shipped and expected delivery is April 6th!! Want it now, but I guess I can wait. Since I don't really have a choice :P

And that is all that is noteworthy, atm. I've been applying to jobs and I had my phone interview with unemployment so I guess I'll find out if I'm getting anything in about 10 days. What an exciting life I lead :P
spacemonkeyluvn: (fregg:: ehyyyy!)

And I seem to be coming down with something. I'm not sure. I've been feeling slightly nauseated for a couple days (which I almost never feel) and I just feel off and generally icky all over. My body is getting that sore all over feeling you get when you usually have a fever and I'm restless. I already put my go-to sick!movie in the DVD player (TMNT) and I'm craving the chicken noodle soup from Safeway and ginger ale. That can't be a good sign. Plus I have these spots/sores on my tongue which are apparently a sign that my body's fighting something. IDK I have a very strange body. It's nothing contagious, but I'd get them every now and then and it took FOREVER for a doctor to tell me what they were. They really hurt if I have anything like lemon or ketchup. I'll know I'm in trouble though when I get the urge to crawl into a corner. That is a sure sign I'm sick.

I'm supposed to see a friend tomorrow. She's getting an MRI on her knee and we were going to hang out and get lunch first. But she has to call in tomorrow morning and see if she's needed for jury duty so we'll see what happens. I both want to see her and just stay in and sleep. Although that's pretty much all my lazy ass does these days. Ugh, I've got to do something about that. But not right now. Now I go to sleep.

*Icon unrelated to this entry, but relevant to my interests.

I keep meaning to post, but then I'm overcome with laziness. I used to not understand how someone could abandon their LJ and only update Twitter and shit. Now I get it. Twitter is perfect for short attention spans and frequent topic changes. Also, I keep thinking of stuff to post about but then it builds up and I feel overwhelmed. Because LJ is serious business y'all.

I've been spending most of my time over at [ profile] holmeswatson09, [ profile] holmes_rpf, [ profile] newbakerstreet, and [ profile] ontd_downey. I am so in love with the Sherlock Holmes fandom right now. I've been a fan of the original canon since way back when, but I don't know. I love how much the new fandom loves and appreciates what came before it and I guess this is what I felt the new Star Trek should have been to me. Anyway, I could go on and on, but visit any and all of these communities and you'll understand. Seriously though, they (RDJ and Jude Law) give the most adorable interviews. And I hate interviews.

I've also watched the most recent White Collar about a million times. God, I love that show. And I watched Skyrunners a couple of times. Cute brothers are cute.

Oooooh! And Toma's first movie comes out in less than a month. But I have no idea when I'll be able to actually watch it. Come on, Internet. Don't fail me now.

In terms of RL, work is... work. We shall see how long I'll last. As some of you may know, California got some pretty good storms last week. Well one day (like Wednesday) it started hailing and raining really hard so I went outside on my porch to watch/listen. My brother was out there too. It was so loud, we had to yell in order to hear each other, even only feet away. I turned to go back into the house when I slipped on some hail. I landed on my ass. Hard. But my right leg was also bent when I went down, so the inside of my knee is bruised up pretty good and it's strained as well. I'm okay for the most part unless I turn sharply or I'm on it for too long (which I am, every day).

Anyhoo, that's about all I have for now. I'm tired and can no longer think coherent thoughts.

So yesterday at work, I had a little cough. At first I thought that maybe my throat was just dry. Silly me. By the time I got home, my skin was hurting. I tried going to sleep, but it wasn't easy. I kept waking up to go to the bathroom, I had a headache, and I was incredibly hot. I never really checked, but I'm pretty damn sure I had a fever. This morning I woke up covered in sweat and feeling like hell. I tried to stay in bed, but by 8 I had to get up and take something. So I took some Ibuprofen and drank some OJ (which then made me want to throw up).

At the moment, I feel okay, but I'm not looking forward to having to work. Especially since I'm closing. Though it would have been worse if I had to open, so I can't really complain. And thankfully I have the next two days off. I just wish I didn't have to spend them in bed being sick.

I don't get sick very often, but when I do, it hits pretty hard. And at the moment, I'm surrounded by sick people, so it was just a matter of time. *le sigh*

I made better-for-you quiche from my Cook Yourself Thin cookbook tonight. It had shredded potato instead of a pastry crust, mushrooms, onion, spinach, and a little bit of cheese. Since I'm off for 2 more weeks, I might as well do something constructive. So I've decided to start cooking. Real meals.

Yesterday I spent the night at a friend's house. We went out for Vietnamese, made a fruit salad for desert (with attempted crepes), and watched bad movies. I mean BAD movies. The first was Transmorphers and was quite possibly the worst movie ever made. And I'm including Planet Raptor in that list. The second was Tokyo Gore Police. That was... wow. I don't really have words for what that was. I'm not used to gore movies (even if they do look totally fake). We did have a lot of fun mocking the hell out of them though.

Tomorrow I have my post-op appointment with my surgeon. Hopefully everything looks normal and healing. I have no idea what anything is supposed to look like. I'm in practically no pain though. Some itchy where the cuts are healing and a bit of soreness when I bend down. But I'm not taking even ibuprofen anymore, so that's got to be a good sign, yes?

HOLY CRAP, TORCHWOOD. I just watched the first episode of 'Children of Earth' and can I just say - IS IT TOMORROW YET?

I do have a question though )
spacemonkeyluvn: (h:: hypochondria)
Oh good Lord. This is why I don't look up health-related things online. I really don't want to hear some of the horror stories of what can go wrong. Now I'm scared of how I'm going to cope without a gallbladder. I mean, the pain was so bad that I couldn't live with it anymore, but I don't know how it's going to be without it. So far, I've been mostly alright. Mostly sore, a little bit of gas and nausea - nothing like I actually want to throw up, but a bit uncomfortable. The thing is, I had a sensitive stomach before all this, so I really don't know what's causing what. I guess this is all stuff I'll have to discuss with my doctor when I go back in for my follow-ups.

I really can't read health stuff. It only makes me paranoid and even more of a hypochondriac.

I'm probably just freaking out over nothing. It's only been 2 days since my surgery. And I haven't had a fever, I haven't needed to take the prescription meds they gave me, I've been able to sleep, I can walk around the house. I just can't help but worry *bites nails*

Okay, I'm going to watch some TV, read some fanfic, and try to sleep without thinking too much about all this :/ Don't mind me. I just needed to get this out there.

Just popping in to say that I'm alive and kicking. Well, not quite kicking. I'm sore as hell. But considering I'm sans one organ, I'd say I'm doing pretty well.

ETA: For the record, my surgery was around 8am and I was released from the hospital by about 1pm. And I think most of that time was because they promised to keep me there until my mom could come visit me on her lunch break. I was walking around (well, shuffling) just a few hours after surgery.
spacemonkeyluvn: (hana:: fonzie?)
Not to keep harping on the subject, but I have my surgery tomorrow this morning and then my dad is taking me to San Jose. He's a teacher and therefore off for the summer, so he'll be able to take care of me during the day. Just wanted to say I'll be away from the computer/internet for a bit - hopefully not for too long, though.

I have to say, this stuff (aka Toma singing catchy Jpop) really does cheer me up.

Well, that and more Toma photoshoots like:

I ♥ cheesy romance (aka I just watched The Proposal). It was a cute enough movie. Ryan Reynolds is hot (though I miss the lankier days of Two Guys) and Betty White will never not be awesome.

I'm also in the process of filling my iPod with cheesy (as if there were any other kind) BL movies.

My surgical consult went fine and (but?) because I'm so symptomatic, they're scheduling my surgery for as soon as possible - maybe even this week.

It was such a nice day today, weather-wise, that a chocolate kiss I had in my pocket melted :(

And because I don't think I will ever get tired of this picture, my current desktop (which I really need to clean) -

Bordering on RPS there a little, aren't we?

If you can't tell already, I'm slightly bored and rambly.
spacemonkeyluvn: (hana:: well hello nurse)
I had another appointment with the doctor today.

Good news: I know what's wrong with me now.
Bad news: My gallbladder is swollen, I have gallstones, and I need surgery :/

I have a surgical consult next Monday. I'm glad to finally have an answer about what's wrong with me. I just wish it didn't have to include surgery. Oh well. I don't even know if they're taking the whole thing out or just the stones. I was a little too shocked today to even have questions. I should probably write down what I want to ask the surgeon now before I forget.

Also, I have cramps. What a wonderful way to start the week.

I wouldn't mind nearly as much if a) Toma was my nurse (see icon) and b) life was like Scrubs and Turk was my surgeon ;D
