That is all.

blame the meds

Today was a less crappy day of recovery than this weekend. Less swollen, less bruised, less feeling like a leper all around. Cried a bit. Had a wee bit of wine. Fought some lego death eaters. Recipe for sanity.
This came in the mail! I've been wanting to dress as a Hidden Temple contestant for years and I finally convinced a group of friends to do it for Capricon in a couple of weeks! Cause, seriously, I did not want to do it solo for Halloween like a chump.
And because I couldn't find light bulbs to replace one that burned out in my rooms (also, standing for too long still makes me dizzy), I managed to finally put these up.
Yeah. Not much else going on. Doing a lot of trashy TV time. Also reading. So much reading.

it's like vacation...only with more medicine and an inability to leave the house

So yeah. I had surgery and am now confined to my apartment for the next couple of weeks. It's like vacation....only, you know, I'm avoiding people, mirrors, and putting on real clothes.
It hasn't been completely boring. Aside from watching all of the Hulu and Netflix, I've managed to get a lot of not so important things done.
Like catch up on important news....
Turns out, I'm not Taylor Lautner's type.
Learned important life lessons, such as Highlanders are the worst and best idea. Also, coloring is fraking awesome!
I've also gotten a lot of crafting done. Finally finished all but the words on my Flight of the Conchords tea party cross stitch.
And am halfway through knitting a scarf....which I have no real need for, I just like the colors and wanted to knit while watching TV (p.s., the scarf is purple, dark pink, and brown, not whatever the picture decided to be...curse my limited lighting!)
Also got these cute get well cards from Susan and Ashlee!
This one was a joke card, it says whore on the inside. My friends are the best!
I'm now off to read more of my trashy book and watch a ridiculous amount of TV.

Lost At SeaLost At Sea by Bryan Lee O'Malley
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Not bad, but not great either. I did like reading a graphic novel that didn't really have a definite conclusion (i.e. and then everything was fixed/broken/something...the end). It was more like reading a graphic version of someone's journal. Relate-able, often funny, mostly sad.

oh, you pretty thing!

Guess who's birthday is today!?!
YEPE! David effing Bowie, that's who!
I've been in love with this man since I was about four and watch Labyrinth an unhealthy amount of times. Oh, how angry I was at such a young age that Sarah didn't stay with him. I was too young to know who he even was, but once I did, I was hooked and never looked back. Music, movies, books and everything else he's ever done, there's nothing I don't love about Mr. David Robert Jones.

Pretty sure, he's ruined me for all men, and I'm totally fine with that. I can listen and/or watch him all day, he never fails to be just what I need for nearly any occasion or mood. It's sappy, I know, but I don't care. 65 and still an amazing human being.

New toy!

I plan to melt and then eat so many things!
And yes, the picture is kinda janky cause it was taken with my phone.

what a way to start the year

Yesterday, I managed to stay in bed, not put on proper clothes, finished the third season of Merlin, and bought a Ciel Phantomhive wig  for future cosplaying.
I’d say it was a successful day.
Also, the cranberry-apple pie I made Dan was a success! Sandra Lee would have been proud.
