Still headachey. Still upset stomach. Still feeling crappy about...just about everything. =P Thanks to a crappy day at work and an interesting little chat with my manager. And while I can understand where she's coming from, the fact that it came out and I had no clue something was even wrong? That instantly made my head throb and my stomach churn. Guh. There were two things that made this day worth getting out of bed at all, and that was supersilly ficlet from da wifey this morning, and the Package For Mature Audiences Only from [livejournal.com profile] secretchristine and [livejournal.com profile] aoibhe. Frsrs, it made me laugh till I cried. Nice to know the ohana is looking out for my well-being. *gigglefit* I LOVE YOU GIRLS SO MUCH. ♥

But anyway, stolen from both [livejournal.com profile] aoibhe and [livejournal.com profile] xtinethepirate ♥♥♥

One little compliment can make you feel great. So give me a compliment, anything in the entire world, even that my shoelaces are pretty. Put this in your journal. Once you get some comments, put that entry in a memory or tag and when you are feeling down, just go to that entry and this will remind you how great you are.

Comments are screened as per meme "rules". Don't forget to post this in your lj when you're done so I can comment to you!! ♥
Went to sushi with Carynn for lunch earlier today, and then came home and napped. I think the first full week back to work is catching up with me now. Just wish I didn't have to waste my Saturday sleeping. ^^;; Am drinking double-strength tea right now, though, and should hopefully be more awake. *blink* Eyes are still fuzzy. =P

Got tagged from [livejournal.com profile] dark_skada for the 16 Things Meme, and since I did one on flickr already, I figured I do it on here as well.

16 things about Wren... )
Figured I'd better make my last post of 2008. Today, my manager was back at work, and my boss wasn't there. Chaos ensued, as is the case when my manager is running things again. Had gotten use to the order and routine of having the bosslady for the past couple of weeks, so it was...annoying, to put it nicely, when I got blamed (however miniscule) for her not being ready for me. Bah. *handwave* Anyway...

Still had to get up early and take a shower and go into work today, which was also annoying. =P Only worked about three and a half hours, which seemed SO LONG and yet FLEW BY at the same time. Went to grocery store, picked up stuff for my favorite red beers, and came home to slip into jammies and veg out in front of the laptop with mah wife [livejournal.com profile] aoibhe and let the newest TV obsession (Criminal Minds *le sigh* ^_~) take over. Took a nap (too long of a nap, but at least I'll be able to stay awake until midnight maybe?) and fully plan on bugging Eva, drink red beers, and eat popcorn. Hells. Yes.

I doubt I'm going to make any resolutions. I never follow through, and I think that it's too stressful to deal with the failure when I've already got stress enough. =P Doctor appointment on Friday morning, holy rescheduling Batman!, this will be the 4th time I've had to move it because of ALL THIS FUCKING SNOW. =P But I'm not bitter in the least.

I know I skipped a couple of blogging days for the 8 days meme, but I'm gonna continue on, damn it:

~ The roads are finally clear, and the car can finally get out of the driveway. HUZZAH!!

~ Sometimes tears are good, and I got to remember that last night. A new growth opportunity, and remembering that sometimes, you have to swallow your pride and admit you're stupid from time to time. <3

~ FOUR DAY WEEKEND. It still sucks that it's unpaid, BUT I DON'T CARE RIGHT NOW. The muses are primed for a couple of days of plotting and writing. CREATIVITY. ENTHUSIASM. I HAVE MISSED YOU.

I recently had a random dream that featured my back tattoo. I don't think I've had a tattoo dream since I got my first back in 2001 (and that weird phase lasted for MONTHS.) Is it odd that I'm dreaming about tattoos? Really, I need to know this. We were in this creepy house museum thing and I was searching for someone, trying to get out the front door. The alarm went off, and all the curators came to see what was the matter. For some reason, we got into a discussion about my tattoo, and the symbolism of it, but it didn't quite look the same (I think there was an Eye of Ra in it to. I mean, it's Egyptian inspired, so I guess that makes sense? I dunno.)

Because I still love it now, 2 years later... )

Day 3 of the Meme:

~ Despite that pesky little "making-no-money" thing, I work tomorrow and Tuesday, and possibly half of Wednesday, and then I'm on vacation until the following Monday. Another 4-5 day weekend, which I fully plan on spending obsessing with [livejournal.com profile] aoibhe and the muses.

~ Am back on the Fetching Mitts knitting jag. Am almost finished with the main part of the Shawl of Doom, 6 more rows to go (even though, to my horror, I saw that I had started it January 2006, and not 2007 like I thought. OMG, THREE YEARS? *sigh* I am ashamed of my faithlessness.) Also, bought some Noro Silk Garden on sale to make this little bit of gorgeousness. (One of the color gradiants I got is absolutely not even a little bit similiar to the two others I got though...I hope it turns out nicely. I got numbers 241, 244, and 268 if you wanna check 'em out on the Noro page.)

People are stupid. That is all.

Pssst: You like gorgeous, handmade jewelry? GO HERE! Wyrding Studios is having a big ole end of the year sale, and it's worth it to take a look. I have a ton of Kyth's stuff, and one inspired the tattoo I have on my back. GO LOOK. *shove*

Day 2 of Meme:

~ The snow is melting, even when it came back yesterday and we got another inch or so. The fact that is melting brings me hope. *flop*

~ The thought of reading horrible SPN fiction to [livejournal.com profile] aoibhe and [livejournal.com profile] isolabela on the phone. BECAUSE THEY HAVE TO SUFFER IF I DO TOO. ^_~
Horrible, awful freaking Christmas. I AM SO GLAD IT'S OVER. Didn't sleep well that night, and woke up around 5:20am to get a drink of water. Had just settled back into my bed when BOOM. My air filter, and clock went out. I couldn't figure out what seemed wrong until I noticed that there was no noise. I had a fit. Laying in bed. An absolute fit. Mom woke up in the next room and immediately called the power company to let them know. Cut to 6pm, after a day of getting another 8 inches of snow, in a cold, dark house on Christmas effing day. (We're up to two feet now, for those playing along at home.) Then my internet decided to be sluggish and really, I was just so cold and exhausted and miserable, I started to cry. It's a little ridiculous to think about right now, but dude, I was so done by then. These past two weeks have just knocked me on my ass.

But, I took a nice hot shower, used new bath stuffies, and cuddled down with internet, mah wifey, Criminal Minds, and flannel jammies. So while the day sucked, at least the night was good.

AND! I just saw that I was tagged by [livejournal.com profile] vomviersen for the 8 Days of Things That Make You Happy Meme! (Okay, so I'm a little slow and sorta been wallowing in self-pity. I guess this is a good thing to try. =P)

So my things for today:

~ NO SNOW! Yes, I finally woke up and DIDN'T see snow falling from the sky. And, the most beautiful news of all, a new storm is coming in and it's gonna be ALL RAIN. I've never been as happy to hear the word "rain" than I am right now. (I will ignore the ZOMG!FLOODING that will happen after it rains. Still. NOT SNOW.)

~ For the first time in years (I wanna say closer to 20, but it's probably more like 15) my father actually surprised everyone for Christmas. I got $100 in my stocking (half for my birthday, half for Christmas), Nate got $50, and mom got really good seats with my aunt to go see Seven Brides For Seven Brothers in Seattle tomorrow night (she and I wanted to do that for my birthday, but it was too expensive for all the tickets, and then the snow, and it just didn't pan out.) My father and I really don't get along - he doesn't really get along with any of us - so this was shocking in a good way.

~ A hot shower last night that made all my tears go away. Watching Criminal Minds with [livejournal.com profile] aoibhe until late. Having my power and internet back. SO. GLAD.

~ My awful twin, [livejournal.com profile] isolabela, gets to play in the desert with [livejournal.com profile] aoibhe and [livejournal.com profile] secretchristine, and while most people I would begrudge out of pure jealousy, I adore Emily and just wish I could be there too! MAH GIRLIES! LET ME SNUGGLE YOU! *loves* HAVE FUN, DARLING ♥
