AP: There's an anime convention about two and-a-half hours away next month that I'm going to, and I found a pretty cheap hotel somewhat nearby. I'd like to cosplay too, but the Lina Inverse costume will have to wait until the next anime con.

Related PP: My sister, who I think will go with me, doesn't want to go for the whole time or pay for half of two night's worth of hotel stays because I'd like to be there for all three days. Unfortunately, the convention's schedule isn't up yet so I can't plan which days would be the best to go to.

thank god for SSRIs!

AP/PP: This may be Joey's year of finding all the things that are very very wrong with him on the inside! (Celiac, depression, ecetera)
Yeah, same here! Never occurred to me seriously that I'd have OCD

Looks like you have half the job done then, Ms. Inverse  Yes, I am a smug bastard...
Yeah, now all I have to do is make the entire coostume. Shouldn't be too hard. Tongue

AP: JRM and Syn, buying all sorts of awesome anime.
I think I eventually want to cosplay as Lina. I believe I have a flat enough chest for the part. :B

AP: thanks to Face-off and Heroes of Cosplay on the Sy-Fy channel (and maybe a med I take), I've rediscovered a small part of my artistic self that I lost due to depression.

AP: I should be getting a seven packages in the mail this week and next week. It'll almost be like my birthday again!

I bought Japanese dishes, chopsticks, wig cap, and all five seasons of Slayers.

Related PP: I'm reeeeeeally not looking forward to my credit card bill. I need to stay off of Amazon... but there's more crap that I "need"! D:

I don't think I've ever heard of that one.

Franistan: made-up country from an episode of I Love Lucy. Why is it that I've chosen to retain this useless tidbit from over ten years ago (which I've only seen once), but I have trouble remembering people's names after they've introduced themselves?

*shakes head and sighs* What did I tell you about stealing people's penguins, Stan?

PP: my OCD is acting up again... I've been looking for a nearby oriental grocery store or at least some place that has a wider selection of foods and dishes and such. Closest one that I've found is hours away. Online shopping is nice, but I would prefer looking at the objects in person (could be less expensive and I can better ensure they get home in one piece).

Large people have babies all the time. Sounds like an excuse to make herself feel better so she doesn't have to feel the guilt when the kid gets sucked out piece by piece by a glorified vacuum cleaner. If she's a decent human being, she may regret it later in life. A lot do. She could have had the kid and put him/her up for adoption.

Maybe next time it would be better to use protection to avoid any more instances like this? You'd probably feel even more crummy if there's ever a third time. Sorry, NP :/

PP: I really need to clean my room and spray it with pesticide. Seeing four different bugs within an hour timeframe is a little too much, even for my room.

PP: I'd love it if my 22-year-old sister would finally get her driver's license so then I wouldn't have to drive her to work at McDonald's. Oh, and next semester, she goes to a university. If my 18-year-old brother passes his first driving test, he'd be driving both of them there. With the way things are going, my 14-year-old brother is going to get his before she does.

While I'm still ripping on her, she can be so childish sometimes. Everyone else in the house is fed up with her addiction with Team Fortress 2. I understand that it's fun, but when she has other responsibilities that she knows she has to do, it seems like her computer has kidnapped her until the game is over. Again, I get it, I've been there, but she doesn't seem to understand that she can quit anytime and someone else will take over the character she was (or so I've heard). With seeing how she is with the game, it really irritates the snot out of me that I don't even want to TRY the game. Neither of my game-loving brothers want to play it anymore.

AP: the bento lunch box (and a book) I ordered off of awhile ago arrived a day ahead of time. It's an adorable blue bento with plum blossoms and bunnies. I thought the description said that it would come with chopsticks, but it didn't. I guess that's okay; I have some of my own.

AP2: stores are starting to put up the stuff up of my favorite holiday- Halloween! However, it seems that most of it is just leftover from last year. I'd like to buy tons of the makeup and some costumes, but I don't know when I'd anything with them. Next time, I think I'd need to bring my mom with to help me say "no" to some of it, especially when it goes on sale. Is there such a thing as Halloween Anonymous?

don't forget the sexual tension between booth and bones. [i enjoyed it until about fifth season anyway]
Yeah, I meant to, but I can't remember why I didn't.

I've been watching Bones. A typical episode usually goes like this- find corpse,, work on corpse and find weird things about it/and or corpse isn't just the "Average Joe", go ask questions, and the bad guy turns out to be someone you're not supposed to suspect because they may or may not have enough screen time. Oh, and there are some little side-stories going on too. If every episode's structure was like this, I probably wouldn't continue.

I've already finished the first two out of seven seasons.

Well, when the inflammation / pressure is released (through the surgery or otherwise), as far as I've ever seen and heard, you get all the feeling back. It's not truly permanent, because it's not that the nerves are dead, just... squished. I guess that's a positive :/

Anyway, I hope it goes well for you, whatever solution they come up with. And my friend had his surgery almost ten years ago, I think, so maybe they've got better methods these days.
Thanks, Greg. :3

I agree! It's so mentally and physically straining! First, you first have put pick it up. Then you have to hold it at a level where you can see the words. And then you have to move your eyes back and forth upon the words while mentally processing the words into thoughts AND imagining the scenario the author is trying to describe. When you get to the end of one line, you have to position your eyes to the first word of the next line, and do it again and again. Talk about monotony! You're not done, oh no. Not by a long-shot. If you find that you've run out of words for your eyes and brain in front of you, new words won't just magically appear for you; you are now assigned the chore of lifting the right page (left, if the book is in Japanese. Different languages?! What is this, I don't even...) and dropping it onto the left side. This tedious chore can only be vanquished by mucking through to the very end and dropping the reading paraphernalia, or just dropping it outright.

People who read... they must be, like, buff geniuses or something.

(If you read all that, consider yourself as a buff genius!)

Syn- if you can find a competent one in your area, maybe see if you can go to a chiropractor to have him work over your wrists? The swelling *may* be manageable by making sure your wrists are adjusted*.

If the surgery that's done now is similar to the kind our friend had done, it's irreversible, and has some side effects for what he can do with his hands, like strength when manipulating things at certain angles. Though that might be less of an issue for you depending on what you do- for him this is largely limited to fatigue when doing a lot of constant mouse-clicking, and loss of leverage when doing car work from some positions.

I just mention this because Jenny sometimes gets similar symptoms, but so far hers can be managed by visits to the chiropractor and the occasional wrist tape.

*an adjustment is basically just making sure all the bones are lined up in the correct spots. If you've ever cracked your knuckles or popped your back, that's what that is. There're a surprisingly large number of ways your bits and pieces can come out of joint without you necessarily noticing.

I think this may be more of my nerves being suffocated by inflammation, but I'm going to see an orthopedic doc tomorrow, so maybe he might have some advice, like, "no, don't go under the knife yet!" I also have an appointment in a month with a neurologist to test how much of my nerves are dying to see if I'm a candidate for the surgery.

I just don't like the fact that this will be chronic. This bout was set off by helping to lift the side of a riding lawnmower, and if lifting heavy things sets it off, it really limits what kind of jobs I can apply for.
