Guys, Dan Dice died. :( He's one of the first people to welcome me to St. Andrews and he drove to my apartment to give me a coffee mug and tell me he was glad I came. I don't care if it was his job, it was still really cool of him to do it (and he tried to deliver it once before, but in the great wisdom of Big Rapids, there are actually TWO "1127 Fuller Avenues" and he went to the other one, so he called me to get my address and we chatted a bit about cancer treatments, since he had cancer...)


This is really sad.

I've had a migraine for two days now and nothing seems to take it away, and it really hurts. I was so desperate for it to stop hurting that I took a Vicodin at work last night (nausea from hell be damned...except that now it's back with a vengeance that makes me want to stab myself in the face with a fork). I'm tired but can't sleep (stupid Excedrin with its stupid caffeine) and I feel all discombobulated. I got some laundry done but I'm all weepy and tired and in pain and I want to throw up...sigh. This is a sad day.

At least I got to go to church. That's something. The Shift Leader gets it, even if the manager is a big fucking prickface.

Shitty night from fucking hell last night. Was going to skip watching "Milk" this morning but said night from hell made watching movie a necessity in order to keep me from killing EVERYONE.

"You are not sick, and you are not wrong, and God does NOT hate you."

"I know you can't live on hope alone. But without hope, life is not worth living. So you, and you, and you. Give them hope. Give them hope."

Dani, my migraine is in hyperoverdrive. Can you make it stop? Pretty please?

I apologize for any typocraphical errors in this post, I can barely see right now.

50 Book Challenge #7 "Nickel and Dimed" by Barbara Ehrenreich

No review, because my brain is fried. Mostly, it's a worthwhile book, but some of the observations she makes about low-wage workers are "duh" inducing. Yes, we would organize into unions and demand better pay, except in Michigan we'd lose out jobs because Michigan is an "at will hire" state and we need our jobs, so we don't do that. I kind of wish I were on a vacation and I could go back to living upper middle class after a year. Or better yet, if I could make the money she made as working class, since it's about twice what I make (but the cost of living is higher, as is her rent, and she couldn't have gotten income based housing since she was lying about her work history). I also wish I had money I could dip into whenever my jobs didn't work out, or that I could start out in each city with $1,200 like she did, instead of the $250 I had to last me those 2 months I was unemployed. But yeah, it's a good book. You all should read it.

For [livejournal.com profile] stateparks I'll post my hummus recipe. This has always worked out for me (even better with a food processor).

1 can garbanzo beans, drained
2 tsp. lemon juice
salt to taste
1/4 cup sesame seeds toasted
2 tbsp. sesame oil
olive oil (to taste, about 1/2 cup)
4 cloves garlic (more to taste)

process sesame seeds and oil in food processor until smooth (you can buy tahini in the store, but it's expensive and it's just sesame seeds and sesame oil processed like this). Add garbanzo beans and garlic and lemon juice and salt. Start processor and slowly add olive oil until desired sliminess consistency. Enjoy with chips or however you eat hummus.

tomorrow I work until three, then I plan to come home. nothing but dying sounds fun for me right now, but hopefully I don't have the migraine tomorrow. hope springs eternal. anyway, I have a fun night of excitement, and then on wednesday I'll be heading to Grand Rapids with people I don't know to go to a GLWTFBBQ meeting. Commence hyperventilation.

Listen here, body, you JUST had a migraine YESTERDAY, you are NOT allowed to have one today, especially when I haven't eaten any of the foods I ate yesterday in anticipation of you having some kind of food allergy. Stop this behavior right now, it's childish and I don't like walking to the kitchen not able to see because you make my vision all blurry. I need that.

I can has presents? )

Rice milk is really good, I love the taste and I HATE the taste of soy milk, so this makes my transition away from dairy a lot easier. I'm sad though, because I LOVE my dairy, especially my cheese, but I don't like how it makes my throat burn and swell when I eat it. I don't know how I'll be able to give up cheese, though. Sigh. But Rice Milk is good. I have decided this, and it is true because I said so. And I'm glad, because I was frantic because like I said, I hate soymilk and I tried some lactose free milk and it was the most vile, disgusting garbage I've ever tasted. Seriously, people DRINK that shit? WILLINGLY? Ew.

DAMMIT head. What did I JUST say?

In other news, my head hurts, my throat is sore, I have to go to work where people are pissed off because of the overzealous cop and the iPod fiasco, I'm tired, I have explosive diarrhea, things are moving in front of my eyes (signaling the end of the road, this is definitely a migraine) I have no music to distract me, and I just finished the last of the migraine medicine my awesome friend [livejournal.com profile] pandabare21 sent me...woo hoo...

But I did just eat a homemade bacon, egg, and cheese bagel (which set off the smoke alarm because it goes off if I take a hot shower, for God's sake) so...yeah. Today does not bode well for my soul.

edgarallenfrog: (pissed off)
I don't suppose anyone has a copy of "La Vie Boheme (A)" from the original broadway cast recording of RENT that they'd let me steal download illegally? It's not like it wasn't paid for and I don't HAVE the CD, but it won't download onto iTunes and I want to listen to my song while I'm walking to work. How else am I supposed to keep from killing everyone? It's not fair. :( *cries*weeps*mourns*wails*

Hey [livejournal.com profile] boobalah, when you feel less deathly ill, could you maybe comment and share with me how you can get a complete protein in your diet without animal products or an overabundance of soy? I tried to google it and all I got were sites complaining that vegans are teh stupid, and I'm afraid [livejournal.com profile] vegan_snark would eat me alive if I deigned to ask, and I'm getting irritated with the whole process. If anyone else knows they could reply too, I just figured Margaret would be one of the best people to ask.

MY head is splitting (and has been for three days) and my body refuses to sleep because of the pain and then blames ME for not getting any sleep. Whiskey, tango, foxtrot, over?

Migraines hurt. Like, really bad. And I want to vomit from all the medicine I tried to take to make it go away, which didn't work. I think it's from the sunburn. I walked an hour, worked 15 minutes (she wrote it in as a half hour though) and then walked back. Orientation sucks. Ashley paid some money toward the phone bill so I had some money to buy toilet paper. But at this rate...I need money. I'm going to have to pay bills at some point. I kind of want to cry. Plus these past few days I've been missing you know who a lot. Yep, definitely want to cry. I just want to travel back in time and convince myself not to let my walls down and not to let myself love him. That would have really hurt him a lot back then (I never told anyone this, but when we went on that first date, I had to go to the bathroom during the movie so I left and did that, and when I came back the people in their seats gave me the glare of death, so I waited in the back until the end of the movie, and when I went back to my seat to get him at the end, he was crying and he said "Oh good...I'm glad you didn't leave...I just thought we were getting along so well, and then you didn't come back, and it made me really sad"--that's how sensitive he was back then) but at this point, I'd rather hurt him than hurt me. Most of the time I'm grateful for what I learned when I was with him, I know it's a good thing I loved him and I know all this pain will be worth the wisdom I'll get from it. On my good days. On my bad days...yeah. Not so wise. Sigh. Bring on the wonder, I guess.


Ok, help distract me people. Name up to three aspects of my life you want me to photograph. They can be specific (my bedroom), or not so specific (something red).

go go go! i'm really excited for this one
