Dept. of I'm Still Here

Not Dead, Not Even Really Sleeping

It's just that I'm not doing much at all, or at least it seems that way. 

In what I suppose I can call some sort of victory, I finally finished my 2015 
[community profile] fandom_stocking  stories. 

You read that correctly. My 2015 stories. As 
[community profile] fandom_stocking  2016 is well underway. 

Sweet weeping god of fanfic on a rubber crutch. 

Tomorrow, I have another endoscopy, to see if the infection I had in my throat has been taken care of. I'm going to head for bed, but first? I guess I'll upload that last 2015 story and alert its recipient. Who may well be bemused, amused, and confused. 

Then it's on to this year!

Bless you, honey...get some rest. And know that I'm pulling for you for that procedure. Sending you love and positive vibes, always!

*HUGS*

Thanks for the hugs, my dear; I really need them these days. (I suppose you do, too, so let's have a hug swap!)

Aw, well done! Better late than never - I don't suppose your recipient will be anything other than delighted by the unexpected surprise. Possibly a tiny bit bemused, but in the good way. ♥

Good luck with the endoscopy - I hope every has been cleared up! *hugs*

As long as they were bemused in a good way (and I think they were), I'm satisfied. But I really do need to work on my timeliness. I do believe I will be late for my own funeral. Which might be a good thing, viewed one way, but not so much in any other way.

The endoscopy was ... interesting. It went really, really well, but its findings appear to have flummoxed my doctor, ever so slightly. The ailment may end up being chronic, in which case I suppose I must deal with it. Another issue showed up, biopsies were taken and I shall find out what they mean shortly after she finds out.

On the other hand, I got a sweet little blue satin pillow filled with lavender for my troubles; my doctor gives them out to her patients when they undergo potentially unpleasant invasive procedures. It smells lovely!

LOL, you're talking to the person who hasn't finished your Fandom Stocking present from last year yet! But good luck with being more timely if you want to be. (Although being late for your own funeral might be a cunning live-forever plan?)

I'm sorry about the results, though - here's hoping that whatever they find is treatable, or perhaps even a false alarm. *hugs*

Treatable may be the best thing to hope for, so that's what I'm hoping I'll hear from her. (Although one thing she found in my esophagus was TMI-enough to make both me and her a little creeped out. Again, we shall see, in about 10 days.

(Although being late for your own funeral might be a cunning live-forever plan?)

Heh ... I think the last person I knew who had a cunning plan was Blackadder's more-or-less-loyal henchman.

Oh dear! *hugs you again*

Always be like Baldrick, a sure-fire motto! (Er. Um...)

Lately my LJ/Dreamwidth process has gone something like this:

Gee, I should post!
*opens up LJ/Dreamwidth*
Well crap, I have nothing to talk about.
*closes tab*
*remembers later what she meant to post about*
*opens up LJ/Dreamwidth*
*forgets what she meant to post about*

Lather, rinse, repeat ....

Mwahahaha!!! Bless ♥

Well, my LJ process mostly involves not ever thinking about posting so I won't blame you ;)

Well done for completing all the fic and nice surprises!

I hope your infection has gone *hugs*

I'm glad you enjoyed the story!

The infection hasn't gone, but may be quite manageable as something caused by what appears to be a chronic esophageal situation. I can probably deal with it, although some new problems surfaced, about which we shall know more when test results are back.

Worth the wait:)

Bah, I suppose manageable is something!

I suppose manageable is something

Indeed; far better than unmanageable!

Thanks!

Lovely to see you posting again! I miss you when you're not around. : )

Well thank you! (Got your lovely card, thank you so much, and am working on sending out cards myself.)

I'll look forward to your card. I haven't received many this year... although there are still 12 days left until the end of 2016, and most of my friends are worse procrastinators than me. : )

It feels good to be able to send off cards. Ideally I think I'd be sending out about 50, but I'll be happy if I can get out 20-25.

I used to send out so many cards. After a while, I realized I was getting fewer and fewer back each year, so I started paring down my list. I used to send around 40... now it's closer to 25-30, and next year I'm thinking it will be even fewer. I hate to be cranky and cynical, but sometimes you have to Marie Kondo people as well as things.

But then there's always the happiness of adding new people to the list, like you. : )

Good luck with your endoscopy!

It went well, thanks! (Interesting things showed up, but I'm sure we'll be able to deal with them.)
