Dept. of Once More Into the Breach

Things What I Have Done Lately

1. Had (yet another) bout of back pain. Luckily, not major spasms; unluckily, it hurts when I sit at my desk, to type. Which is, you know, my job. Back to the exercises, silly woman!
2. Seen "The Shape of Water," which I thought was close to a masterpiece. I read a very good piece on tor.com by Elsa Sjunneson-Henry, on why she was disappointed by it. She has some valid points to ponder, worth lowering my defensive "but ... but!"s and listening to. Still, I can't help it; I still think it's close to a masterpiece. Perhaps, had del Toro thought about some of the things that she brought up, it might have been even closer to one. Still ... close ....
3. Been put under even more pressure at work. It's painful to talk about, so I won't do it here. Just send me good vibes. I've been down about it, but I want to get up. 
4. Worried about BB. He is my rock, and my beloved, and I wish I could do so much more for him than I can. 
5. Made hotel reservations for FB's June wedding. Less than five months away ... it's still weird to me; I keep joking (not joking) about how he and Miss Em need to elope, dammit, but this is what she wants. And that's important. And now I have to think about weird-ass Middle American things like buying a mother-of-the-groom dress in the right color. Their wedding colors are teal and orange. Teal and orange. Sweet lord.
6. I found a copy of "Coastlines:The Poetry of Atlantic Canada" and ordered it. I bought a copy several years ago, and then lost track of my copy, and desperately wanted another. The two times I went back to Canada after buying my original copy resulted in fruitless searches. So off to Amazon I went, and I got it, and immediately turned to my favorite poems. And then FB told me today that he had my copy. Heh. 
7. Other things I shall probably remember when I am in bed.

Teal and orange? My brain hurts just thinking about it.

I think, knowing Miss Em, that she can make it look really nice; it's just that my brain hurts thinking about it, too. Heh.

I guess it would depend on the specific shades: it's just when I think teal, I think of a slightly sickly green-looking color (even though certain shades of teal are among my favorite colors), and orange, well, orange is the color of Halloween pumpkins and prison jumpsuits. I cannot imagine the two colors together (I prefer green with purple, myself), but post some photos, and I might be willing to change my mind. : )

As soon as I have pictures, they'll be up ... probably sometime in the next 4.5 months. Heh ....

Ye gods...teal is bad enough. But ORANGE?? O_o

I am sending love and warm thoughts and positive energy and hugs and more love. Share some with BB and FB for me.

*Cuddles you close*

Whatever is going on... I hope it's at least better now than it was when you wrote this post.

Thanks - things are improving slowly but surely. Medical stuff is always, quite literally, a pain in oh, so many ways, but both of us are more cheerful about the situation.
