Several Things Make a List

  • Tuesday: Accompanied BB to his endocrinologist's. Endocrinologist ultimately agreed to put him on a thyroid suppressant. at least as long as the drug's bad side effects (at least one of which, of course, mirrors one of the symptoms BB is desperately trying to control) don't kick in. The guy was caught out, thanks to two of BB's other doctors letting BB know that the Endocrinology Guy actually said that BB had a hyperthyroid condition in his notes, notes that BB didn't see. EG tried to deny saying what he did, but could only manage a pretty weak "my comment was misinterpreted." Yeah, nice try, buddy.

  • Work: things are still crazy. Still making a deliberate and considered effort not to be freaked the fuck out. Vacation transition madness continues. Still focusing on fuzzy kittens with all my will.

  • Christmas Day: Successfully pulled off dinner for nine. Enjoyed the company; the company enjoyed us. Loved giving out the presents - partial shares in water buffaloes (and a couple of shares of goats) through Heifer International. Plus book store gift cards, because everyone needs something more than a water buffalo. Got some neat things; the Doctor Who Book of Monsters from one of my friends who is a proto-fan, a book about British Kings and Queens, Gerald Durrell's A Zoo in my Luggage, which I've loved since I read it as a child. Oh, and BB's going to get me my first tattoo ... yesssssss! Got a back spasm.

  • Writing: Trying to work on [community profile] fandom_stocking and thus far I have one story finished up, just about half an hour ago. With maybe three days to go before it closes, this is as unproductive as I've been in years. We shall see whether writing what I did today may have loosened the log jam in my brain at all.

  • BB: in bed all day with a cough and a temperature that got to about 102.8 before falling a little. I am worried.

And now, to bed, with heating pad and extra pillows because, yes, the back is still wonked.

The picture of your Christmas dinner made me smile. I am so glad that it turned out well and that you were surrounded by friends.

I'm working on a fandom story, too. Here's hoping!

Hope you and BB feel better soon. I'm currently down with my usual case of post-holiday yuck, so I feel your pain.

Got your lovely card, btw--thanks!

I'm glad the card reached you, and I'm sorry to hear you've got the yuck. (Hmmm; that phrase sounds like it should be the title to a song.) But you survived obnoxious guests and/or relatives, which is always a good thing, and were able to enjoy the folks you like, I take it?

Holiday with the family wasn't nearly as stressful as I'd feared, and I was able to see my geeky friends on Saturday, so yes, that was good. The post-holiday yuck proved to be thankfully short-lived. I'm in the office today to work on letters, but at least it's peace & quiet, no boss, etc. And a computer that's bigger than my little tablet. : )

When I read your post I had to go and check 'fandom stocking' because I was trying to think up new ideas for a fic (cos I realised a meat feast of a fic wouldn't be ideal for a vegan, oops!) and I was like, "Wha---! I need time!"

I did have a nice quiet Xmas thanks for asking:)

Ohhh, I hate a sneaky doctor like that!! WHAT THE HELL WAS HE PLAYING AT?!

Crossing my fingers for the work situation, darling. Wishing you nothing but a smoother coming year with that.

Ohhh, what an awesome Christmas!! And eeee!! First tattoo! AWESOME. *Beams*

Hoping the Musie comes back with a bang, sweetie. Non-writing (in a fictional sense) is no damned fun at all!!

Hope BB feels better soon. *Worries*

And you take care of yourself, yeah? *Fusses*

*Gentle hugs all around*

Glad to hear that your Christmas dinner went well! What's the tattoo that your BB's buying for you going to be?

Hope your back feels better and that you don't catch the fever.

Hugs for the New Year.

When I first read this I somehow got the grammar mixed and had to reread a few times because I'd thought you wrote: sucessfully had a dinner of nine enjoyable companies. Er. I am glad that you a sucessful dinner and did not accidentally eat any of your guests!

For fandom stocking... I was under the impression that reveals aren't happening until a week past New Year's?
