I forgot to mention that this week's Marvel Dimestore Dame was Deathbird.

Also, I woke up today to find myself sick. My throat and lungs kind of hurt a lot. Oddly, drinking water just makes them hurt worse. That can't be good.

With any luck, by the end of the night I'll have written my last hair magazine story EVER. \o/ And I say 'with any luck' because I think I might actually be a little sick, due to major tummy problems, and I pretty much just want to go to sleep right now. This might not sound any different than usual, but I assure you, it is.

Moving on. I stole this from [livejournal.com profile] traincat:

1.) Give me a pairing.
2.) Give me an AU setting.
3.) I will write you a three-sentence fic.

Today at Dimestore Dames, I explore daddy issues with Lilith, Daughter of Dracula.

Also, I feel very very very sick. Very.

This week at Dimestore Dames, I check out hot four-eyes Debra Whitman.

Also, I feel like I'm going to barf. I tried eating half a bag of tortilla chips for dinner, but somehow that didn't help matters. IMAGINE THAT.

Thursday: I drop off my prescription. Am told they're out, but they have an order coming in by Monday. Okay, I have enough to get me through a few more days anyway.

Monday: I come back for my prescription. It's not there, and the pharmacist seems confused why it's not there. Nevertheless, he takes my phone number and promises, "Don't worry, you're not going to be without your medication."

Tuesday: I come back for my prescription. Am told, "It'll probably be here tomorrow." Am barely coherent as I reply, "I ONLY HAVE HALF A PILL LEFT." Possibly out of fear for their lives, they give me six pills to hold me for three days. (Why so many if it'll probably be there tomorrow?)

Very, very good thing this is only my most minor medication. If I'd had to go without my Pristiq, I'd be huddled on the floor right now, weeping.

Last week's, because I forgot to mention it here: Aunt May!

And now today's post: Hellcat!

In other news, I feel like I'm going to throw up, and also it's supposed to snow tonight. Yay?

My week so far:

Monday = utter exhaustion

Tuesday = mysteriously perk-up thanks to magic new caffeine source

Wednesday = manic after chugging magic new caffeine source, followed by massive painful crash

Thursday = a little energy before a bad cold suddenly hit hard

I want nothing more than to take tomorrow off and snuggle under the blankets all day instead, but there's a project I really need to finish before Christmas; we have the 24th until after New Year's off, so things need to be totally done by then. So instead I'm heading off to work to probably type out a few bleary, incoherent words while my head fills with mucous. TGIF!

I watched the first fifteen episodes of the second season of Parks and Recreation today, and while it's been a long time since I liked a show well enough to marathon it that extensively, I now feel nauseous from staring at my computer screen for so long.

I make good life decisions.

Also, why is my vacation over already? This means I actually have to leave the apartment tomorrow for more than a McNugget run. :((((
mizzmarvel: (andorian shingles! - entwashian)
I went to the doctor on Friday; I'm completely freaking healthy. No thyroid issues, no anemia, cholesterol and blood pressure are good, blah blah blah. I'm just completely exhausted and lacking energy most of the time. No big, right?

I can't believe I have to pay $300 for the privilege of finding out nothing.

Unrelated, but today I was walking home from the store when I passed these two guys carrying a big table into a nearby building. Briefly, I thought about offering to open the door for them. But when they'd hand me the keys to unlock the door, I'd just grab them and take off running into my building!

On the way down the hall, I'd toss the keys down the garbage chute along with my probably identifying jacket, then enter my apartment and immediately go take a shower! That way, when the police came to pound on the door and demand to know my whereabouts, I could saunter out with wet hair and say, "Oh, I was just taking a shower."

Then I could chuckle as they leave, smug in my knowledge that I had one over on two hapless, innocent strangers, and also that I destroyed a jacket I like a lot.

None of this would be feasible though, because it would involve me running for more than a few yards without getting winded.

I went to the doctor about two weeks ago. All the blood work amounts to about $300 out of my pocket. For that price, there better be something wrong with me.

In any case, one thing my medication has not accomplished is making me feel less tired. I'm 26 -- aren't I supposed to have any energy ever?
mizzmarvel: (andorian shingles! - entwashian)
Yesterday: I ate dinner, then felt sick.

Today: Continued feeling sick all day, so I consciously chose a dinner than included none of the key ingredients from the night before. I ate dinner, then felt sick.

Way to be awesome, stomach.

I've also been really, really tired for the past couple weeks? Despite getting the same amount of sleep? It might be depression. But I'm going to keep on truckin' through the weekend, and if it's not better then, to the doctor I go.
mizzmarvel: (harry's manwink - entwashian)
Today I basically laid around, hardly leaving my bed, and never even put on proper pants until it was nearly dark, only so I could acquire a smoothie and lentil soup for dinner.

I told myself that this was so I could allow my body to recover, but well. Let's be honest -- this is how I would've spent the day anyway.

Someone please come here and dress me, put some makeup on me, and then carry me to my dental appointment. I've managed to brush my teeth, so that's covered.

Oh my God, I don't feel well.

Too blargh for full sentences. Bullet points:

* Woke up sick, eventually felt a little better
* Did taxes
* Went to McDonalds, carried food all the way to Heather's on a hurty foot, only to discover the order wasn't complete
* Celebrity Fit Club
* Went back to McDonalds, almost yelled at the guy in charge until he gave me a card to reimburse me for lost food
* Got home, now in too much pain to take a shower, take off clothes, wash face, etc. Cat may go hungry
* Wisdom tooth removal tomorrow, so this'll be extra fun

I feel awful. As in, actually physically ill. I started the day tired -- fair enough, it was the morning -- that evolved into aches, nausea and lightheadedness that wouldn't go away, even with Tylenol. Now I think I might be a little warm and have slight chills.

Ugh. What a way to start pre-weekend festivities.
mizzmarvel: (tommy's sick - context)
Dear the world,

I'm still not feeling well. I've been dizzy and ooky all day, and it looks to continue unabated. As such, I expect to be shamelessly coddled.

Yes. I demand that you pat my head comfortingly and give me cool drinks and make sure my sheets are nice and clean. Put all projects on hold and divert all attention to my pathetic sickliness. Coo over how brave I'm being. Read me stories in a soft voice, then put a wet rag over my eyes, turn off the lights, and leave the melodic rock stylings of the Red Hot Chili Peppers' By the Way album playing in the background, taking care to remove the too-abrasive "Can't Stop" from the playlist just this once. Fret over whether I'm getting enough fluids or if this is an inner ear problem.

In short, I expect you to be my mom.

Yes, all of you, the world.

Most humbly, Mackenzie

But no, seriously, today I almost cried once because of how gross I feel. It was pathetic. Sorsha, my only witness, no longer respects me.
mizzmarvel: (penguins - not jamie madrox but could be)
I felt not-awesome all day and still feel a little ooky. Like, I just hurt, and it was like my head never recovered from being asleep or something. I don't know. Maybe I'm still recovering from vacation.

Anyway, I'm too blah to think straight, so I just stole this meme from [livejournal.com profile] ungratefulwench:

Leave a ONE WORD comment that you think best describes me. It can only be one word. No more than one word. Then copy & paste this post to your own journal so I can leave a word about you.

Best news I've read in a while. Except for the part about Comedy Central continuing to work with him, rather than running him out of town or hoisting him up the flagpole by his underwear.

I just don't get America's affection for Jeff Dunham. His jokes are racist (seriously -- Achmed the Dead Terrorist? wtf?), sexist, and just plain unfunny. His routine is tired and always has been -- he's pretty much saying stuff like, "Take my wife, please!" and "Non-white people sure sound funny!" but since he speaks through the mouth of a puppet, it's supposed to be hilarious. Ugh. Just put him on the Blue Collar Comedy Tour and be done with it.

Totally unrelated, but yesterday I went back to the allergist to finish my allergy test; this involved testing for foods and retesting for molds/pets/flora/etc. I basically got the equivalent of 13 shots for the latter, which let me tell you, was not fun. No food allergies, but this time it came back fairly conclusively that I'm allergic to cat hair, among a few other things. Last time I checked (seven seconds ago), my cat has cat hair. Uh-oh! I guess I'm leaving her at the orphanage.
mizzmarvel: (andorian shingles! - entwashian)
I knocked a few things off my To Do list today, and tomorrow I'll be finishing up others or deciding not to do them at all because apparently the blizzard that ate Manhattan is being projected to roll through over the weekend. I don't care as long as it's done and clear on Tuesday, when I leave. I'm already nervous enough about flying; flying into snow is too much for me to comprehend.

Anyway, I went to the rheumatologist today, and he thinks it's more likely that I have fibromylagia than arthritis. Score?

Okay, not actually. But I'm glad to be getting somewhere.

And thanks for the holiday cards, [livejournal.com profile] derien and [livejournal.com profile] harmonyangel!

According to my allergy test, I am allergic to:

Dust mites
Birch trees (I don't even know what a birch tree looks like)

However, I didn't even react to the control, so who knows what, if anything, was accurate. All's I know is that before I went to the doctor some odd months ago, I was under the mistaken impression that I was robustly healthy. Now I have acid reflux, allergies and possibly a heart murmur. Who knows what'll pop up the next time I go in.

ETA: Fanfic love meme! I would be much obliged.
